Iowa: Hercules

Hercules makes me think of Superman. Think about it. Super strength, kind of like a god, and uses his powers to help people. They are not that different. And since Superman grew up in the Plains (Kansas specifically) and took a lot of his values and principles from what he learned while living there, I think Hercules would be a great representative of another state not so far from Superman’s hometown.

I could completely picture Hercules out in the cornfields, hiding behind his boy-next-door persona so no one finds out about his strength. Then one day he’s able to lift up a tractor off of someone or catch it before it kills anyone, and everyone is shocked.

He then has to figure out how he’s going to harness his power. Perhaps he’ll need a certain trainer named Phil to help him learn how to be a hero and deal with his newfound fame. Through his new status, maybe he meets a girl named Meg and ends up having to save her from an evil dude with blue hair.

Whatever he ends up doing, Hercules feels like the perfect fit for Iowa. Despite being a Greek myth, at least in the movie, he feels like an All-American dude who is just looking to do the best he can with what he has. The Greek gods and goddesses were like the first superheroes in a way and as the son of Zeus, Hercules is a bit of a superhero himself. Superheroes don’t always want to be out in the open.

What better place to live his life on his own terms than in Iowa? Even when his secret comes out, Iowa is a place he can escape to when he’s not saving damsels in distress.
