mighty Hercules proves that not only can he
eat and breathe fire, but that it has
absolutely no effect on his chest and limbs.

nail (11cm) through a 1.75" board (4cm) with
his bare hands.

3 strongmen to drive a 6' (1.8m) steel rod,

match for Kharou's mighty neck muscles, and
bends under the force.

of 5/8" (16mm), into a corkscrew using his
hands and his head.
