Big Bully Brother

"Before we go," Ares said to Hercules, raising his hand to the beefy half-god, "you need a cut worthy of a soldier of Ares!"

Hercules grabbed his head as a swarm of the manly magic of the god of war engulfed it fully.  Before he realized what was happening, his curly hair was trimmed and his facial hair was completely gone!

A warm breeze blew across the demigod's bare face, suddenly making him feel quite naked.  He touched the soft skin around his jaw and grunted in surprise.

"There," Ares said with a laugh.  "Now you look like my little bro!"

Stunned, Hercules couldn't stop thinking of his beloved beard.  But the memory of his facial hair would remain only that: a memory.  Ares always gets what he wants, and his magic would not wear off until he commands it.

Hercules and Ares wrestling...  This idea was incredibly spur of the moment and meant as a stop-gap to fill in time while I waited for the next version of the studio to come out -- which it actually just did!

I hope you enjoyed this tale of pro wrestling gods in the sky.  I know it's a very strange little tale, but I enjoyed it.  And just in case you were wondering, this story is set in a timeline where Hercules never met Sergios.

And now I'll take some time off to plan the next story (which pits Tarzan against an African native named Jabari).  Thanks for visiting Barbaric Brawn, and I'll see you guys later!



  1. I was wondering when this would happen! It's great, but can Herc get a Soul patch, a Vandyke, sideburns...something? You know, some distinctive markings. lol. BTW, in my imagination this is what took place after Herc beats Sergios & is then confronted by or confronts Ares, who was angered at the defeat of his champion Sergios... That's how I rationalize it. Anywho, thanks for another scorcher!

    1. You're welcome! Thanks for commenting. Glad you liked it.

  2. In my opinion, Herc looks less manly without the beard & curly hair. However, I guess his brother just proved that he is less manly.

    1. I agree. Hercules just is NOT Hercules without the beard and curly hare. If anything, it was Ares who seemed to be less manly.
