Question: Two questions: One, wouldn't Hades had been able to figure out that Hercules wasn't a mortal, not only by his obvious strength, but also by not dying immediately from every monster he faced? Wasn't the point of Hercules turning mortal was so his strength would be gone? Second, when Hercules makes the deal with Hades towards the end, all Hades had to do to take away his strength was basically just to touch him with the handshake. If it was that easy to take away his strength, why didn't he try this years ago?
Trivia: As already noted, Hercules wears a lionskin which is made out of Scar. In the myths of Hercules one of his great tasks was to kill a vicious lions and he kept the skin ever since. But it's more than just a joke or a cameo that he wears Scar, for both Scar and Hercules were animated by the same man (Andreas Deja).
