What did Hercules do to become a hero?

I need to write a hero essay and I was given the topic of Hercules. yuck. but anyway, iv'e read the mythology book and i googled hercules and everything and i dont understand why hes such a hero. mythology and my brain do not go together.

Also, please tell me what all he did while being a hero. like, a list of the good things he did to make people think he was a good person.
