In a world teeming with caped crusaders, super-, spider- and iron-men, Hercules may rank as the world’s first superhero. While guys like the Man of Steel and Captain America hit the scene in the 1940s, the son of Zeus’s legendary heroics played out 3,000 years earlier. And with the latest big-screen incarnation of Hercules played by one of the planet’s top action stars, Dwayne Johnson (who is rumored to be playing a major role in an upcoming Shazam movie), the character shows no signs of slowing down. Fans of the legendary strongman now have an opportunity to own his long-sword – which was wielded on-screen this summer by Dwayne Johnson. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the 55-in. blade, which was created by the film’s props department from bamboo and hard rubber, to the modern-day warrior who casts the winning bid. Click here to see the sword and its etchings – and place your bid on this phenomenal piece of weaponry used by one of the world’s truly legendary heroes!
