When he gets back, Eurytheus refuses to count this one as a successful labor since he had help. Thus, the title of these posts will become "The Eleven Labors of Hercules."
The Hydra has many allusions to it. Here are a few:
The Hydra - this little animal lives in streams and lakes in temperate and tropical zones. It has amazing regenerative abilities and never grows old.
Hydra - This is a bad guy group in Marvel comics. This gang was started by a guy named Baron Wolfgang von Strucker. They always go around shouting about how you can't stop Hydra, cut off one head and two more grow back. They usually say this right before they get killed.
THC-Hydra - this is some login hacker program. I didn't want to search too much for this. I figured I was making myself a target for being hacked.
Hydra - a made for TV movie in 2009 that stars, well, nobody I recognize. The big tag line for this movie - "Prepare to be consumed." IMDB doesn't even bother to add a summary for this movie.
But wait! There's more! We have:
The Hydra Project
And about 12,000,000 other results on Google. Geez! Everyone loves Hydra.
Next labor - no more killing monsters! That's not working well anyway.
