The Prometheus AffairEdit
Long ago Prometheus decided to help humanity by giving then the gift of fire. In order to do this he sneaked into Mount Olympus and used a torch to steal some fire from the sun. With this gift humanity was able to excel and improve society. However Zeus was angered by Prometheus for having disobeyed his rule about intervening in mortal affairs, so he punished him by chaining him to a mountain in Tartarus where a giant eagle (whom he will grow to develop a frenemy relationship with) would come each day to feast on his liver. Luckily (and possibly painfully) his liver would grow back after each night. Despite everything, humanity still remembered his noble act and in his honor they erected and named a school after him and a statue.
(In Disney's version, his torment are designed to be comical in nature to make it family friendly, since he logically is enduring extreme agony for an eagle to feast on his liver everyday, then to be regenerated for the eagle to do it again for eternity).
During a Liver & Onions Thursday's at Prometheus Academy Hercules heard of the injustice Prometheus suffered and decided to save him.
To the eagle after he landed in front of him and Hercules:
- "Back for more you buzzard? Well the chains are off this time!"
To the eagle after he lands on his chest to start once again their daily torture routine, saying, "I believe I have a reservation for lunch? Booked under 'Eagle'.":
- "You're not funny, you know? Not now, not ever!"
Seeing Pegasus overhead, but doesn't see Hercules riding him:
- "O ho ho ho! A flying horse...Let me guess, the horse flies in every day and kicks me in the head, then my head heals overnight, then the horse comes back the next day and kicks it again! Huh?"
