Long after the incident with God the Spork had rebuilt himself. The Spork was weak and could not directly help the world in case any new evils dared to threaten the world. Since God had created this race of imperfect humans the Spork figured he should at least help the poor creatures along their destined paths. To do this the Spork created his new son, Sporkulese. Being that at the current time god had made it so no Spork or deity could leave the heavens the Spork made Sporkulese half man and half Spork. The other Spork gods were against the creation or Sporkulese. Especially Spera. Spera knew that Sporkulese would ruin her plans for complete and total chaos. Sparies the Spork god of war was also against Sporkulese even though he was his brother. Spareis knew that Sporkulese would thwart his attempts to start a war that would destroy the world.
Sporkulese was found in a forest by an elderly women. It was raining hard so the lady decided to take Sporkulese home with her. Since the lady had no family in which to call her own, she immediately took Sporkulese in as her own son. 20 years had passed. The old women had died and Sporkulese decided to wander the world. Everywhere he went he found troubles and hardships. He saw many people die and suffer. He soon decided that he will help innocent people such as them. He met up with many a foe. He defeated warlords, whole armies, destroyed ghastly creatures, and saved many lives. Sporkulese’ name was soon known throughout the world. Spera was very angry at all of this. Sporkulese was soon rendered subject to Sporkystheus and had to accomplish 12 labors. These were known as the 12 labors of Sporkulese.
The first labor of Sporkulese was to defeat the Nemean Lion. He had to bring Sporkystheus the skin of the beast. Using his mighty club and arrows he defeated the mighty beast and brought it to Sporkystheus.
The second Labor was to defeat the mighty Hydra. Its was said to live in a swamp by Amymone. The lake was made long ago when Neptune allowed Amymone to touch a rock with his trident making the lake. the Hydra chose this as its home. Sporkulese had much trouble at first in trying to defeat this beast. Each time he slew a head 2 grew forth in its place. The beast could not be defeated for its center head was immortal. eventually, with the help of his friend Iolaus, he burned the other heads and buried the immortal head under rocks.
His third labor was to Capture the boar of Sporkymanthus. Not much is known on how he accomplished this labor but needless to say he did.
His fourth labor was to Capture the Arcadian Stag. Once again not much is known on this labor.
His fifth labor was to drive away and destroy the birds of lake Sporkphalus.
His sixth labor was to retrieve the girdle of Hippolyta. Its seems that Sporkystheus’s daughter Admeta wanted to have the girdle. Sporkystheus told Sporkulese to retrieve it. Sporkulese went to the Amozon nation and was greeted warmly by the queen Hippolyta. Hippolyta was about to give Sporkulese the girdle when Spera, in the form of a Amozon, told the other amozonesses that Sporkulese was talking their queen away. They all tried to kill Sporkulese. Sporkulese, thinking that Hipolyta was acting treacherously, slew her and soon sailed homeward.
His seventh labor was to Clean the Augean Stables. It was said that the stables held 3000 oxen and had not been cleaned in 30 years. Sporkiulese brought two rivers to run through the stables and cleaned the stables in one day.
His eighth labor was to Capture the Minoan bull. Not much is known of this labor.
His ninth labor was to Capture the mares of Diomedes.
His tenth labor was to Bring back the oxen of Geryon. This monster had three bodies who lived on an island Erythrina. During this labor he split a mountain in two. Which were known as the pillars of Sporkulese. The oxen were guarded by a giant and his 2 headed dog. Sporkulese slew the Giant and the two-headed dog and returned safely with the oxen.
His eleventh labor was to Pluck the golden apples of Hesperides. Sporkulese had no idea where to look for the apples. After many adventure he came upon mount atlas. Atlas was one of the titans who warred against the Spork gods and when he was subdued he was made to hold the heavens upon his shoulders. Sporkulese thought if anyone could find the apples it would be atlas. But the problem was how to have atlas leave his post to find the apples. Spokulese soon decided to hold the heavens up while atlas searched for the apples. Atlas returned with the apples and very reluctantly took his place as bearer of the heavens.
At this point there was a celebration in Sporkulese’s honor. After the celebration a giant named Cacus stole part of Sporkulese’s oxen while sporkulese was sleeping. the giant , so no one could follow them, dragged the oxen by their tails so that they wold leave no distinguishable tracks. Sporkulese was fooled by this at first but eventually heard the oxen and found them and slew Cacus.
Sporkulese’ s twelfth labor was to Bring Cerberus up from hades. He went down into hades with Sporkury and Sporkerva. He got permission to take cerberus. Although Cerberus struggled and fought Sporkulese held him and brought him up to Sporkystheus.
After losing control and killing his friend he had to work for a queen for 3 years. after that he married Dejanira. The two had to ask the centaur Nessus to help them across the sea. Sporkulese crossed the sea on his own and had Dejanira take the boat. at one point Nessus tried to escape with Dejanira. Sporkulese shot Nessus in the heart with an arrow. Nessus told Dejanira to take his blood and use it to make Sporkulese’ love stronger for her. She did so. She took the blood and put it on a white robe and rubbed it in so well that there was not a trace left. And one night she had Sporkulese put on the robe. The blood turned out to be poison. He tried to get the robe off but ti stuck to his skin. He ran from the place and embarked on a ship and sailed for home. Sporkulese knowing he was near death climbed Mount CEta and had Sporkocetes light him on fire. As he burned the Spork gods felt troubled seeing the champion of the earth die. But the Spork spoke to them. “Fellow Spork gods, he may be alight but only the human side of his mother shall die…his immortal side of me shall live on. They all looked down and saw Sporkulese rise from the flames. The Spork sent down a cloud and lifted Sporkulese. Soon Sporkulese was riding a 4 horse chariot to the heavens.
