If your DM allows stuff from other settings... Eberron Campaign Setting has "Acidic Fire" (p. 120) which is the best of alchemist's fire and acid combined into one. 1d4 damage unless it's vulnerable to fire or acid or both. If you're fighting undead or light-sensitive monsters, look for "Alchemical Sun Flash" in Expedition to Castle Ravenloft -- it's ...
Alchemical items Like everyone else said, there are various thrown splash weapons. I could stop here, but I have a different prediction. Alchemist Bombs This is a Pathfinder class, not a 3.5 one, but it might be what you saw. The two systems are very similar. The Alchemist uses 3 special abilities: extracts (basically spells); mutagens/cognatogens ...
Splash Weapons are found in many books, including core Splash weapons work like grenades: they are thrown, and they cause some effect in an area, or to whoever was hit plus others in an area around that person.

However, there's one that is actually specific to playing epic heroes: Hercules & Xena, by West End Games, derived from the TV shows Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess. It includes extensive examples using the shows' characters, and it includes ...
Would it be Mythender? You take on gods, heroes, etc. and it can either be mythology drawn from history or made up. Agon RPG would be the second one I'd think of with Hercules as a potential enemy, though the game is clearly set to greek mythology specifically.
