Hercules, Hugo. Hugo Hercules was created by William H.D. Koerner and appeared in the comic strip “Hugo Hercules” (1902-1903). Hugo Hercules is a Superhuman do-gooder. Hugo Hercules, “the boy wonder,” is a tall, well-dressed, polite young man who wanders around the city helping those in need. And because Hercules is a physical marvel, with superhuman strength and speed, he is capable of stopping runaway carriages simply by grabbing them, or catching a falling safe, or lifting up an elephant.
