Storyline

A man pretending to be Hercules is killed while rescuing two children from a collapsed mine, and prosecutor Spencius accuses the real Hercules of the man's death as well as disrespecting the gods. As Spencius examines witnesses who had encountered Hercules and twists their stories into showing Hercules in a bad light, Hercules battles his own conscience as to how responsible he is for others' actions, leading to an impassioned Spartucus-style speech at the end.

Quotes

Spencius: Hercules means well, but we can't ignore the facts. Around him, because of what he does, people die. A lot. He causes others to reach beyond their abilities. He admits his dislike of the gods and encourages us all to ignore their edicts. He disrupts our order, our perfect order. Think of the effect on future generations. Heroism. Follow your heart. Do what you think is best. It corrupts our youth. It puts the future of our great city-state in peril. It's treason!
