I have seen a lot of interpretations of Hercules in print and media, and they are all entertaining to some degree. There are a couple of competing films coming up, one starring The Rock in the title role. Of course there are the classic films as well as Disney's animated version. I was a fan of the fun, if sometimes hokey Hercules: The Legendary Journeys TV show, although I enjoyed the spinoff, Xena: Warrior Princess, more. Despite all of these incarnations, my favorite Hercules is the Marvel Comics version. I love his huge personality, and how he interacts with other characters around him. He is a great addition to any story.
