So folks, yes another DC Olympian respect thread!
So here is DC Hercules to showcase, without delay, let us see what the ancient hero has shown!
Here Hercules holds up the entirety of Paradise Island, doing this for thousands of years by himself.
Here Hercules(under the guise as Champion) assists Wonder Woman in fighting Doomsday(a clone), showing some great durability and strength.
Here Hercules has been fighting Gog(though off panel) who as I understand it, is a powerful foe(abit someone could correct me on that), where Hercules then takes a full blast attack sending him through a wall and crashing into a car, with just a burn on his chest. (Abit his armor more than likely did lesson the damage) However even still, Herc had been fighting against Gog for some time, so it shows something for Herc in relation to his skill.
Here Hercules overpowers The Olympiam who himself has shown great strength. He was able to smack Hercules around, he has all the powers of the Agronauts including Hercules.
Here Hercules takes down both Giganta and Cheetah using his strength.
So here is N52's Herc appearance, fighting against Aquaman, showing some rather impressive strength and durability against him. Abit it seems that this Herc isn't a ****bag like his Pre-52 self, as he went to Atlantis to help the king driving back an entire horde of creatures and being locked away in what is Hell for the Atlanteans.
Of course it seems that this woman(dunno if she has a name) brainwashed Hercules into some kind of monster so....perhaps he isn't acting as he would normally...we shall see if/when he appears again, it looks like he might appear again considering Aquaman sent him to the Laybrinth and spoke of helping him later so we shall see.
At any rate, a good fight for Hercules showing some rather impressive strength and durability, considering N52 Aquaman has shown to be pretty awesome in terms of fighting.
(Thanks goes to the N52 Aquaman respect thread for posting those scans, so I could post em here for Herc)
1st two scans show him fighting some sea creatures, that were guarding where Hercules was once chained.
Next 2 scans show him taking on a group of enemies, lifting a car with ease before smashing it down upon the group.
1st scan Herc destroys a torpedo
2nd scan Herc pulls a boat through the water
Next 4 scans show him fighting against the Hounds of Hell, overpowering them and crushing one by ripping out part of the ground and throwing the piece.
1st two scans show Herc stopping a huge tidal wave, by hurling a piece of a lampost to make a trench for the water to flow into, saving a museum.
3rd scan is him ripping a large chuck of ground out and tossing it on a group.
4-5th scans show metal just breaking on his body.
6th scan shows him punching through a force field.
First 2 scans are him just manhandling some monsters.
3rd scan is him pushing an ENTIRE mountain to destroy some tanks that were on the other side.
4th scan is him creating an earthquake to knock some horse riders down.
5-6th scans show him being jumped on by a horde of android woman which he easily overpowers.
Here in these scans, Hercules lifts Big Ben and tosses it.
So here, Hercules fights against Lord Cerberus a man who serves the war god Ares. He shows immense strength, being able to create earthquakes with his blows(among other things not seen, being greater than Samson as the 2nd scan says) and is able to fight Herc pretty well up until the fight ends, where he is buried beneath hundreds of tons of rubble.
1st scan shows Herc throwing a piece of metal, to destroy 4 nuclear missiles.
2nd scan shows Herc throwing rocks so fast that he destroys 3 planes and damages a 4th.
Despite having been drugged, Herc regains his strength, breaking out of chains and collapsing an entire tower.
First 2 scans show him avoiding attacks by Casper and then knocking him out with a precise rock throw to the head.
Next 3 scans show him fighting the Titan Oceanus(who he had fought with before) who is immune to Hercules' strength, so he then uses artificial lighting and sends the Titan back from where it came.
Here Herc fights Ares, he also tanks a tank cannon shot near the end, suffering no damage.
Herc fights against a couple of Atomic Knights(does anyone remember these guys?) and survives a shot from an Atom pistol.
Here Herc fights against the Atomic Knight Brydon, who has the power to absorb molecules from a fragment of a piece of the world's largest lake that was transformed into a brick. He then goes after a much bigger piece, where Hercules grabs the full brick which weighs MILLIONS of gallons of water, shoving it into Brydon's face and it exploding, completely destroying the armor yet Hercules appears fine.
1st scan, Hercules with his immense strength created a new type of metal which then the Atomic Knights forged him a set of indestructible armor.
Next 2 scans show him fighting a demon, immune to its fire while the Atomic Knights armor starts to melt, he then creates a dust storm using boulders to defeat the beast.
First 2 scans having Herc saving 2 Atomic Knights while flying in a plane.
Next 3 scans show him falling from said plane, surviving the drop and then taking down the plane with perfect time using a boulder to cause a wave of water to crash on it.
Here Herc has a little fight with the Anti-God Ares, showing great strength and nice reflexes, he gets caught in a landslide but appears later unharmed.
So being summoned to Mount Olympus by Zeus, a massive fight ensues between Zeus, Hera, Ares, Athena and Hermes fighting against their Anti selves, the Anti-Gods who have formed into a single eternal being. Hercules figures out a way to end the fighting, by threatening(and doing) to bring down Mount Olympus. The Gods and Anti Gods try working together to stop him, but are unable to, due to him forming an impenetrable shield, the Anti Gods are then absorbed back into the Olympians, saving them all.
Well there ya have it folks! Some stuff for DC Hercules! So enjoy!
