There's no doubt about it: Theseus was an extremely strong and totally skillful dude. This is pretty much required for an ancient Greek hero (and most modern superheroes for the matter). Whether it's giant pigs, dudes with clubs, or pine-bending maniacs, Theseus always comes out on top. No matter how mighty the foes that Theseus comes across he overpowers them with the greatest of ease. Just like Heracles, Theseus uses his power to make the world a safer place for all the little people out there who aren't quite strong enough stand up to the big baddies on their own.
