The Incredible Herc[]

The Avengers fight with Cerberus, when Hercules shows up and causes more damages than Cerberus. Hercules asks where are the Avengers because he wants to join them. The Black Panther organizes an emergency meeting to discuss the entrance of Hercules to the Avengers. Everyone agrees, except Black Panther, with the entry because the team needs extra muscles to compensate Thor and Hulk. Hercules begins to party upstairs until Ares, the god of War, opens and wants to destroy his brother for stealing one of his weapons. Hercules is taken by his brother to Olympus and the Avengers decide to help him. The Avengers discover that his true plan is to release the Kraken to destroy the Earth and beyond. The heroes eventually defeat him and during the Black Panther battle gains more confidence in Hercules. Hercules realizes that he can not enter the Avengers until he gains a sense of responsibility. In the episode it is decided who is the leader of the team that in truth is none, the Black Panther is the general and Captain Marvel is the field commander.



Hercules is known for his arrogance, self-obsessiveness, carelessness towards others, and large ego. He works as a hero for glory and praise, not for helping others. and shown to always mispronounces Charon's name which annoys him, and causes more problems than he can solve. He is also known for taking nothing seriously, but excuses it with his belief that "life is too short for it" or that it is better to "lighten up". Despite his hubris and pride, he also finds joy in fighting and sports, which he believes he is the best at.

He relented when he was defeated by Pluto and realized the danger the world was in because of his flaws. This made him humble enough to follow Hulk's lead to mend his mistakes.
