The Mighty Hercules has been a superhero longer than any Super hero out there. He's been a mythical legendary hero for thousands of years. There have been many methods by which his tales have been told. One in particular is comic books. Since the early 1940's he has been a figure in many comic books by many different companies Quality comics , Marvel comics , DC comics and Charlton comics. The Charlton series is a stand out because it featured artwork by cartoonist and illustrator Sam Glanzman which not only ( In my opinion ) covered his origins better than most ( at the time ) his labors were spelled out in a format that was east to follow as well as an entertaining form of graphic storytelling. Classic.
