     He's coming for the belt!
     He's coming for the belt!

    Who’s Ares to let a little matter like getting ripped in half keep him down? The Sentry might’ve left him half the man he used to be in SIEGE but, sure enough, the god of war’s getting pulled back together by his old enemy. Comics Nexus caught up with Mike Oeming for some tidbits pertaining to the five-issue CHAOS WAR: ARES mini he’ll be starting in. See, the Chaos King’s bringing back everybody’s favorite non- Kratos war god and forcing him into servitude for the CHAOS WAR. He’ll even be pitted against his old “god squad” buddies Thor and Hercules.

    Glad to see that the bad man’s going to be back and busting heads, even if he isn’t necessarily guiding the hands that’ll be putting the hurt on. Either way, did any of you really think he’d be gone for that long? In the grand scheme of things, he was basically just taking a seat on the bench and staying out of the game for a quarter, which brings me to another… == TEASER ==

    Ares wasn’t too far off from a pro wrestler to begin with (I could see Batista playing him if there were ever a movie) and this whole comeback story reminds me of how outside circumstances so often influence the plot in RAW or SMACKDOWN. You know what I’m talking about, right? Stone Cold cranks his neck too hard during a match and, rather than admit it on TV, they come up with some in-story explanation about him getting “suspended." In my mind, you’ve got something similar, here. Ares busts his knee in real life? They “kill him” in the comics, let him take it easy for a couple years and then bring him back to life in time for Marvel’s own “Survivor Series”… a crossover like CHAOS WAR.

    First Iron mans mighty Avengers, then Norman Osborns Dark Avengers and now the chaos kings army. Why is Ares always on the wrong side??

    @gonzooo:  He isn't always on the wrong side, he choose the side that there will be more War, hence the whole God of War thing he has had going on since, i donno, his creation! I think he might be on " the wrong side" in the comics cuz he is a easy character to hate, like wolverine and the punisher.... they are dicks! but everyone loves a dick.  so you love to hate them, and hate to love em.

    @BuddyBulson:  Yeah I guess that's what they're trying to do but in my opinion it's making him look like a dumb puppet and he's nothing of the sorts, he's the god of war because of his intelligence maybe even more then his strength

    I don't mind Ares since he's awesome and killing him was a mistake but all this death and rebirth is just becoming tiresome. If a popular character actually stayed dead for 3 or 5 years then I'd be surprised

    I'm glad he back but a lot of writers seem to lack his characters perseptive the only writer that seems to got a grasp of him are Michael Avon Oeming and Kieron Gillen.

    Black Bolt never died on panel, he'll be back.. 
     
    Anyway, I love that he's coming back and it's super expected. He's died before. In his mini-series, i remember him telling Alex (Phobos) that it's in a god's nature to return. Still, his death scene was a major WOAH moment for me.

    This is great news. I just hope he gets a proper upgrade. He cant be the God of War, but can only lift 75 ton? Colossus lifts more than that, come on Marvel. Give this God some powers!

    I glad he is coming back! He is the Fricken God of War... was so upset when he was so easily dispatched by Sentry when it only took a hellicarrior to take out Sentry... Ares is the man, a fighter through and through. I loved his mini-series and look forward to many more great stories lines!  He and Punisher were on my lists of crappy deaths, but I just try to forget those and be happy they are back!
