So the epic story of Hercules that Pak and Van Lente have been telling for the last few years comes to an end, and whilst Herc in Brooklyn was nowhere near as good as the Incredible Hercules’ adventures with Amadeus Cho, this was still a good comic, and one that was a good idea that never really got going. I think the problem with ‘Herc’ was that there were too many event tie-ins, rather than bring in more readers, the encroachment of Fear Itself and Spider-Island probably pushed them away. This double-sized issue wrapped up things nicely and was a good reminder that what makes Hercules interesting isn’t that he’s a God, but his humanity. I liked seeing him team up with Elektra, Marvel’s two Greek heroes should team up some more, how about they save the Greek Economy? I also liked the humour about Mortal Zeus, he may not have been as cool as Kid Zeus, but he was funny. David Hahn’s art was very good too, and if Hercules ever gets another shot, I’d like to see him draw it. I’ll miss following the big Olympian Idiot’s adventures monthly, but he’s still Brooklyn, and I’m sure the likes of Spider-Man, Daredevil, Punisher and the other NYC-based heroes will be making a trip across the bridge to team-up sooner or later.
