So I decided to take it a step further, later that night I sent my two minions, Pain and Panic, back to Mount Olympus to get baby Hercules and bring him down to earth. Once they were on earth I told them to give Hercules the bottle I tried to give him at the party but suddenly Amphitryon and Alcmene, an elderly couple, came by and stopped them just before Hercules...
