HAIL SPARTACUS, the ultimate gladiator! Taken into slavery as a child, his parents slaughtered by the Romans, Spartacus was destined to become one of the most famous heroes of all time. He was trained to fight in the arena, spending many years perfecting his skills with the sword, shield and spear. Time could not tame him. Spartacus never forgot the freedom of his past, or the cruel ways of the Roman Empire. When the time came to be called to the arena, Spartacus knew this was his chance for revenge. If he could beat the Emperor's finest gladiators, he could overpower the guard at the gate and make his bid for freedom.
