Hercules: The Legendary Journeys showcased many very cool female characters in its six years on the air. Xena the Warrior Princess may be the most popular, but there were plenty of other formidable women that served as foes, allies, and flames for Hercules. Atalanta was a recurring character and love interest for Hercules played by champion bodybuilder Cory Everson. Atalanta was a Greek athlete and warrior based loosely of the Greek mythological character of the same name. She was also a metalsmith which tied heavily into her role in the show (when Hercules met her while having nails made and later when she was possessed by Ares to forge swords). In one of her appearances, the first Olympic Games are held and she wins the Javelin competition. This figure is a little odd, but pretty nice overall. It doesn't really capture the beauty or physique of Cory Everson, but the costume and weaponry fit in well with the rest of the series and make for a great addition. Let's check her out below!
Atalanta comes with two swords, three javelins, and a quiver that has launching capabilities.
Here is an assortment of images of Cory Everson as Atalanta from the show.
