The one change in ‘Hercules’ that bothered me…

… was making Hera nice.

The last thing I am is a purist on Greek mythology for a Disney cartoon but seeing Hera as a doting mother just feels so *bizarre* whenever I watch it. Even as a little kid seeing it in theaters I knew Hera was supposed to be Hercules’ main foil.

Even if they just alluded to it (there’s a very subtle joke about Oedipus ripping out his eyes after having sex with his mother so it’s not like they couldn’t do in-jokes) by having her not present because she was pissed at Zeus that would have gone a long way.
