Description by OLDIES.com:
In Hercules the Avenger
(1965) Reg Park returns as the man of iron. Utilizing elements from Park's earlier Hercules in the Haunted World
and Hercules and the Captive Women
the mythological Son of Jove undertakes yet another journey into the nether regions battling zombies and monsters along the way in order to rescue his son. His long absence allows Gia, the Earth Goddess, an opportunity to place her own slacker son in Hercules' sandals, but his ne'er-do-well ways soon provoke Jove and the angry God destroys the entire city via a spectacular volcanic eruption.
BONUS FEATURE: Hercules and the Black Pirate (1964) is one of those weird time traveling Hercules adventures. Here Alan Steel is in Elizabethan times battling pirates on the bounding Main and while he may look like one of the Three Musketeers, once the shirt comes off he's all Hercules!
Muscle, action, and a healthy dose of camp went into both of these B-movie gems. Hercules (bodybuilder Reg Park) must save his son's soul from the evil Earth Goddess Gia in THE AVENGER. When he travels to the underworld, Gia's equally evil, psychopathic son Antaius assumes his identity as king. Antaius proceeds to wreak havoc upon the populace, methodically destroy the country, until Hercules returns to avenge his people. Then, in HERCULES AND THE BLACK PIRATE, things take a decidedly surreal turn when Hercules (this time played by Alan Steele) engages in a little time travel. Set in Elizabethan times, Hercules must battle the evil Rodrigo, advisor to the king, as well as the formidable Black Pirate himself; he also sets out to woo the governor's lovely daughter.

Reg Park returns to his antics of old as the man of iron in Hercules the Avenger! The Son of Jove undertakes another journey into the nether realms battling zombies and monsters in order to rescue his son, allowing goddess Gia an opportunity to place her own slacker son in Hercules' sandals. There's something for everyone: ghouls, dragons, sweating men and girls in skimpy outfits, all in a new 16x9 enhanced edition! Then Alan Steele stars in the anachronistic Hercules and the Black Pirate, a weird time-traveling romp in which the strongman enters the Elizabethan era battling pirates on the bounding Main!
