If He Is Immortal How Can He Die?

If he is immortal according to his power list and the fact he is a god, how can he die. Trying to find Siege in Ireland is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. So i dont mind spoilers

immortal in this case simply means agewise.

His body can be destroyed but his essence or "spirit" can live forever. Eventually it will enter a new body and Ares will be reborn, much like Zeus.

He is immortal in the sense that he won't die unless someone kills him.As in he will naturally live forever.

This is how I see it his immortality gives him super durability and super strength but if Ares comes across someone physically stronger than him or someone with great magic then his body will die. 
Ares then has to wait for another skyfather like Zeus or Pluto to resurrect him
 
His body can be broken and turned to ash by someone more powerful
 
but his Soul will live on and go through the cycle of death and reincarnation that many Olympians follow, Ares eventually will be back. It might take 5-10 years for him to return in some kind of rebirth but eventually he will be back

@DEGRAAF: Ares in Sentry's body... if Sentry's powers are as vast as Marvel is making them appear to be that is one deadly combination.
 
I also didn't mean enter a new body as in possess it, but rather have one prepared for him. Although with what's going on in New Olympus that might change and Ares might just stay dead, which would suck.

@DEGRAAF: That's a good question, I didn't compare Asgard to Olympus.. I only mentioned New Olympus because of what's going on in the Herc books and how Zeus and Hara are supposedly dead, as in for good.

Well the Olympians were originally the Eternals, but then they changed that. But as far as I know both are considered the actual mythological gods of old. I believe Marvel has used just about all the major mythos religions from the Greeks all the way down to the Mayans. Although I saw most of them in Marvel The End.

@Nova`Prime`:

ASGARDIAN GODS

They are not immortal, but have incredibly vast life spans (compared to humans) combined with regular consumption of golden apples of the cosmic tree of Yggdrasil to maintain their vitality. Hence even a "God" as old as Odin still retains vast physical strength. Asgardian bodily tissue is much denser than that of humans, giving them great weight and immense strength. This is combined with an accelerated metabolism that provides enormous stamina and reserves of energy, as well as the capacity to heal rapidly from wounds and great resistance to disease. As the Asgardian culture prizes glory in battle above all things, most Asgardians are highly skilled fighters in hand to hand and (archaic) weaponed combat. Though no Asgardian has been shown dying of old age, they can be killed. If they are killed in battle, their souls are taken to Valhalla, feast hall of Odin.

OLYMPIAN GODS

The typical attributes of Olympian Gods include superhuman strength, invulnerability, and functional immortality. They are usually immune to human diseases. The source of the Olympian Gods' immortality is their practice of eating ambrosia and drinking nectar made from the apples of immortality. The gods of Olympus are a species of superhumanly powerful beings who were worshipped by the Greeks and Romans.

They were never Eternals. Eternals were introduced after Olympians.

hercules dies recently in incredible hercules at the hands of atenna

BEING IMORTAL JUST MEANS THAT THEY CAN LIVE FOR EVER  
AND NOT AGE 
BUT THEY STILL HAVE A PHYCHIAL BODY WITCH CAN BE DAMAGED OR DESTROYED

Asgard & Olympus are connected, it's why Ares turned on Osborn he was pissed cos he sees the asgardians as brothers

Ares isn't the first god to die, Zeus died. All of Asgard perished during Ragnorak to be reborn. As stated above he will return, well actually he is back.
