Is Hercules Sleeping With Dudes a Big Deal

The “bisexuality” of Hercules is now a part of Marvel’s botched pandering to the diversity monger crowd. Their mistake is that Hercules is not bisexual: he is omni-sexual.

Herc ended up with such a reputation for trying to have sex with everything that moved that by the classical Greek period, he’d become a meme. He was shorthand for drunken sex & lechery, a cheap laugh-line. A drunk Hercules could pop up from behind a rock at any moment and go “did someone say sex with animals?” and the Athenian crowds would howl. In fact, he wouldn’t even have to say it. Hercules could pop up and mug the crowd (as best as one can mug through a Greecian drama mask), and someone would probably say “Old Aeschylus better clench his cheeks, for Heracles is on the prowl!”

So, uh… Hercules sticking his dick in a wide assortment of things is not a particularly original concept. What is new is that some folks may actually be trying to make the case that this has anything to do with progressivism or diversity.

Take a look at this panel that I’ve seen going around.  See, this is silly where the characters are acting like getting boned by Hercules is something special. These ladies appear to be acting as though sleeping with the highschool quarterback who has not only screwed every girl who would put out but also the mascot (not just the guy in the costume, but probably him too) is some sort of thing to brag about. In fact, this panel is like the cheer squad wondering why guy who wears the costume isn’t proud of what happened. Plus, it looks and reads like those old wincest memes*…

Poor Northstar, but thousands of years of western literature should’ve clued him in that Herc would kiss & tell.

  1. Marvel comics is becoming a train wreck. I have no read a comic in about 30 years but I had good memories of them then.
    This SJW pandering is ruining the medium. but then the Progressives re NOT creators, they are co-opters they are social parasites leeching and credibility and value and wealth from other mediums whilst pushing a crappy agenda. The medium with devalue itself and when it realises how far down the rabbit hole it is, it will be too late and it will be completely up to the interlopers as to whether they hold on until they suck it dry or move onto the next target.

    • Eh, comics have actually been down the rabbit hole for a pretty long time. The biggest difference now is that there are popular media sites cheering them on every time they do something so blatantly progressive and alienating that we actually hear about it. Take Batman & the Outsiders, for instance: I loved B&O, but every once in awhile, Mike Bar would get a hair up his ass and pit them the Force of July, a villain team organized by an evil straw republican, and it would be terrible. And that was 30 years ago.
