Character Closeup

Hercules - Life can be tough when you've never met your father, especially when he's Zeus (you know, the king of the gods). And having Hera, the queen of the gods, angry at you is no picnic. When he's not battling giant monsters, or getting his friends out of trouble, Hercules is busy trying to figure out exactly what it means to be a hero.

Jason - Jason may not be the son of a god, but he is the future king of Corinth. The academy is the perfect opportunity for the strong-willed, strong-armed king-in-training. Together with his friends Hercules and Iolaus, he'll go through all the adventure and excitement any student could ask for. The question is, when it comes time for him to assume the throne, will Jason be ready for the responsibility that comes with the crown?

These two, along with their friend and companion, Iolaus, take on any heroic and dangerous adventure they come across, fighting for what's right, and triumphing in the face of discord and strife (usually caused by the evil gods Discord and Strife). You can see them Tuesday through Friday afternoons, and Saturday mornings, as they train to become heroes, only on FOX KIDS!

Front cover of the magazine. View a high-res version of the scan here. Interesting note: This picture of Hercules has been reversed, as Hercules always wore the bracer around his left upper arm, never his right.
