Hera was the Goddess of marriage and the wife of Zeus. Her and Hercules became enemies when Zeus cheated on her with a mortal and produced Hercules. She wasn’t only a villain, although she did try to kill Hercules on basically a daily basis, she was not regarded as evil. She was worshipped all throughout Greece, for far longer than her husband Zeus was. Despite her attempts to kill Hercules, she was actually a good person and goddess. “Hera aided the hero Jason, who would never have retrieved the Golden Fleece without her sponsorship” (MythWeb).
