Long ago, in the ancient land of Greece, there was a golden age of powerful gods and extraordinary heroes. And the greatest and strongest of all these heroes was the mighty Hercules. Hercules was the son of Zeus, the most powerful God. Zeus fell in love with a beautiful woman named Alcmene. Alcmene's husband was away for a while. Zeus made Alcmene pregnant. Alcmene: (beside the river washing clothes) (thunder effect) (Zeus came) (light effects and thunder sound)
This made Hera so angry. Since Zeus was not a good husband to his wife. She tried to prevent the baby from being born.
(Alcmene gave birth): baling hilak ni jhocy..
Scully(midwife): Its a boy!!!
Jhocy: Give him to me, I'll name him Hercules.
(The name Hercules means glorious gift of Hera in Greek. And that made Hera more angry. She plotted schemes to kill the baby.)
(Setting: Crib, Snake thingy.)
Hera remained angry. How could she get even? Hera knew that she would lose in a fight, and that she wasn't powerful enough to prevent Zeus from having his way.
Hera: I'll make his life miserable. I’ll pay Zeus back for his infidelity, I'll make Hercules' life miserable.
When Hercules grew up, he became a very strong warrior. He married Megara and they had a happy family. (music) But Hera continued to seek revenge. She disguised herself as a mortal and planned to ruin the happy marriage.
Hera: Is this the land where the famous hero named Hercules lived? Megara: Yes, Why do you ask?
Hera: I know him. We met and he told me to run away with him. He promised his love to me and I am here to fulfill that promise. Hera: (shocked) dalagan pauli.
(ga hilak si nikki. ni duol si dyle)
Hercules: Megara what’s wrong?
Megara: YOU BETRAYED ME!
Hercules: What are you saying?
Megara: I met a woman when I was in the market, she told me everything. EVERYTHING BETWEEN YOU AND HER!!! Hercules: (confused) I don't know...
