The Dark Avengers: Ares Part 1 wiki last edited by fesak on 05/06/13 02:26PM View full history

Ares - The God of War! His relentless brutality and his bloodthirsty drive to attain victory at any cost earned him only scorn from his fellow gods in the Greek pantheon, and exile from Olympus. After thousands of years living as a man and fighting in man's bloody, petty conflicts, Ares joined the ranks of Earth's mightiest heroes - the Avengers. Now Norman Osborn - the head of the corrupted Dark Avengers and director of the paramilitary intelligence agency H.A.M.M.E.R. - wants the finest fighting force the God of War can provide.

And that's exactly what Ares will need, when the goddess hera provides him with a fighting chance to regain his standing in the patheon's eyes. And Ares is taking his men with him into the battle of their lives.
