In the film, Hercules is the son of Zeus and Hera. While Amphitryon was away, Zeus disguised himself as Amphitryon and seduced Alcmene, in a night that was three nights long, conceiving Heracles. Hera suckled him but found him too powerful, and sent him back to his mother, who gave the child the name of Heracles, the "Glory of Hera.".
