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.
