Bob the Narrator and Muses explain that Athena and Ares have been rivals for centuries. So when Hephaestus builds a secret weapon for Ares - a bow that produces energy blasts as arrows - Athena has Hercules and Phil go to Sparta to investigate this secret weapon. However, while there, Hercules unwittingly accepts a mission from Ares to destroy Athens using the Armageddon Bow, who, as he discovers, is a female and doesn't like to kill. After Icarus and Cassandra arrive and Icarus blurts out Hercules' prior commitment, Ares decides to kill them, but Athena comes to his aid. While the two deities argue over who should get the bolt, Hercules decides to drop it and let whoever catches it have it (who turns out to be Eros).
