They try some interesting things with ol Hercules here but ultimately it falls flat. I enjoyed the first quarter, maybe a bit less and then it took a severe nosedive. I tried hard to like the rest, probably out of pity for old dumb Hercules, he's had a tough run, but ultimately flat characters and a boring predictable plot dissuaded me.
Marvel needs to drop the whole Greek/Roman pantheon like Perseus dropped Medusa and stick to the Norse gods & creating new original heroes.
Fun. Hercules no longer has powers, just some magic weapons. He does his best to start a new life and protect those around him. Difficult with fear everywhere. A great book with Hercules at his best.
It was quite enjoyable. Didn't really tie in with the Fear itself storyline, but still it was fun.
