The final battle between Hercules and the Chaos King has begun. On what remains of Earth, Galactus and Amadeus Cho try to move all of Earth's population into Continuum. Unfortunately, even with the latter's hypermind, there's no way to get billions out in time. Cho and Hercules argue over their fundamental beliefs before the latter declares that they cannot let the Chaos King win. Cho then gets an idea and tells Hercules to bring the Chaos King down to Earth. The God Squad then hit him with everything they've got. The Chaos King laughs at their attempts to foil him and begins to consume everything into complete nothing. But in reality, our heroes have sealed the Chaos King within Continuum.

Despite their victory, creation itself is in ruins. Hercules himself despairs when he is approached by an apparition of Athena. She tells him that once he's healed, he will take his position as an All-Father and remake the world. However, Hercules refuses to listen to her and instead uses his powers to restore everything to what it once was. Also, many deceased heroes, including Alpha Flight, are staying in the land of the living. Cho and Hercules then high-five after the former professes his love towards Delphyne Gorgon. But it turns out that Hercules has expended all his powers saving the world and is now mortal. The duo then walk towards a newly restore Olympus.

Gods should stay in the sky 0

Aside the mayhem and bad dialogues, this series was only good for giving Hercules a chance of stardom and it was a fitting and interesting end, following this window of oportunity. Looking throught this angle, the outcome couldn´t be better, since there´s now a new aproach for the Lion of the Olympus, but unfortunally I can´t be taken adrift in a sea of wonders only for this argument.I didn´t like the whole final battle, let me explain better: I don´t think the battle was organized - despite Ama...

Review; Chaos War #5 0

Hercules and the Chaos King go mano-a-mano for the fate of the entire Marvel universe - - and even some pocket universes! The Good As far as arcs go, I can't think of a more appropriate way for Herc to come full-circle than to achieve godhood and then renounce his all-power in the interests of humanity. While I'm only catching the tail end of it, I do have to say that Herc and Amadeus' relationship comes to a similarly-appropriate cathariss, with the two of them legitimately learning from eacho...

Would Have Been A Better Story Arc Than Event 0

As big of a fan of this run as I have been, I have to admit that Chaos War, the final arc of the Incredible Hercules saga, has also been its weakest. That is not to say Chaos War has been a bad story, because that isn't true. But it was a story that possibly bit off more than it could chew and as a result never really comes together even at the end.  Heroes and villain alike get what they want in a conclusion that builds nicely off of the stories that preceded it, using an element from a previou...
