Hercules didnt retold anything.

Athena did, to Cho. And this storytelling of past feats isent any different than the rest we saw so far.

> Also, there is a metaphysical connotation to the feat -- he isn't holding up the sky he is simply standing in the way of the two forms meeting.

His arms are raised up, for a reason.

He isent doing a coreography, and just standing there isent stopping the two forces from meeting, from the feat`s description. If that was the case anyone would pull it up.

And even in the myth tale, it was clear how only someone as strong as this, could do it.

Maybe, maybe not. As it is, you cant pretend that it isent meant to be an over the top display of strenght.

If they end up saying its less, then its something else.
