Mythology Island – Spotlight on Hercules

Hercules, who was actually known as Heracles to the Greeks (Hercules is his Roman name) was one of the most powerful and beloved of all the Greek Heroes. He was born the son of Zeus and a mortal woman, and early on showed his strength and survival skills. When he was only a few months old, a jealous Hera sent two serpents to his crib to slay him. But he was later found with both the snakes crushed in his hands and was playing with them as though they were toys.

Hercules is most famous for his twelve labors, which were given to him by his arch-enemy King Eurystheus. He was originally given ten labors, but then had to complete two more after the King deemed that two of them were not completed correctly. Among the labors were destroying the Hydra, capturing Cerberus, and capturing the Cretan Bull.

Hercules in Poptropica

Hercules is a popular and strong hero.

In Poptropica, Hercules has already achieved his great fame and you must lure him out of his cafe, where he is busy signing autographs. He won’t help you out until after you’ve completed your mission for Zeus and you’ll need to have Aprodite’s mirror before you can convince him to join you. Hercules will assist you with his strength by moving the obstacles that prevent you from getting inside the Underworld and Poseidon’s realm. Finally, Hercules will open the gate to Mount Olympus, where you’ll battle Zeus to save all of Poptropica.

In Greek Mythology, Hercules is granted immortality for his heroics and becomes a God, joining the Olympians as the greatest hero of all time. In Poptropica, he has a less fortunate fate. He gains immortality as a statue, turned to stone by the evil Medusa!

Hercules and the Medusa in Poptropica

Hercules turned to stone by the Medusa, but not before he strikes a pose.

    O8:]

  43. OMG I PASED IT I GOT THE MADEL

  44. Oh, sheesh pink lady, LOL means laugh out loud! (8

  45. To get the scale you have to jump really high into the air when one of the monster’s heads lunges back and land on its head. When all of the heads are gone then you click on the monster and you’ll get the scale. But be careful, if you wait for too long in between jumps then they heads will come back. To get the dog to go to sleep then you have to go in the music place and talk to one of the statues. They will ask you to repeat what they do and then you get a piece of music to make the dog go to sleep. Then click on the dog and you will get a whisker.

  46. SUM RANDOM CHIK

    It was quite easy. I can’t say it was hard but lol STRIKE A POSE! Medusa is way to retro well not retro, but old. I would like to be turned into rock with a very nice pose but, but then I would, yeah, you know. I think Hercules would be able to break the stone but just didn’t want to. There’s the reason for some people who don’t know anyway if you are wondering about the snakes, click the snake with red eyes 3 times. It took me time to work that out but when I did it, I was so fast. The bone one is where you spell TEN. Put the star from Poseidon’s face in the museum on his offering alter. Enter then go to the 3rd girl at the end and answer correctly you will get a mirror. If you already have those items, whisker, scale, the pearl, ring and rose, give them to Athena and Zeus will steal them. Don’t worry. Run to Hercules and and tell him you have a teleporting mirror thingy and before that get some fruit from the sphinx thing. Then go to Hade’s by pressing on the mirror and place the fruit on the alter. Then get Hade’s crown and Poseidon’s staff . Get Hercules to break the lock off and defeat Zeus!!!!! so easy!!!!

  47. SUM RANDOM CHIK
