"Are there none who may save this kingdom?!" The hysterical shouts of the king resounded throughout the castle as the invaders drew closer. The servants could only think of one man: Hercule, a dastardly criminal being held in the dungeon. As a last resort, the king ordered his release. The decision was immediately met with protest, for entrusting the safety of a kingdom to an outlaw was deemed highly problematic. Yet even the most ardent of them could not deny he was their only chance.

Hercule is a French variant of Hercules. Hercules is the Roman name for the Greek divine hero Heracles, who was the son of Zeus (Roman equivalent Jupiter) and the mortal Alcmene. In classical mythology, Hercules is famous for his strength and for his numerous far-ranging adventures.
An antihero or antiheroine is a leading character in a story who, unlike a traditional hero, lacks conventional heroic qualities – such as idealism, courage & morality – and acts in an unheroic manner.
