It never really made sense to me why the other kids are so mean to a young Hercules. I mean, sure, he is different, but he's also strong. What kid wouldn't want him on their team for . . . gladiator games I guess? Then again, my knowledge of ancient Greek team sports isn't great so perhaps that's why they were meant — they were jealous.
The other thing I've always wondered is: just how old is Megara supposed to be? We know Hercules is 18, as it's part of the Fates' prophecy, but we never learn Megara's age. Is there an age gap? Because she certainly acts much older. Then again, all of the Disney princesses have somewhat concerning age gaps with their princes, so maybe it's a good thing there isn't a true canon age. Although if we go off of the 1998 Hercules TV show, they are of similar ages as Meg shows up as a teen in one episode titled, "Hercules and the Aetolian Amphora."
