Synopsis:
Lex Luthor transports Hercules across time to help him commit robberies. Hercules soon learns Luthor’s evil nature, and helps Superman capture him. Clark Kent helps Hercules assume a secret identity as Roger Tate and gain employment as a Daily Planet reporter. Soon the god of strength falls for Lois Lane, but she rejects his proposal of marriage, saying she is in love with Superman. Hercules goes to Olympus, asks for and receives weapons from his fellow gods with their powers imbued in them, and returns to Earth, intending to “crush” Superman.
