Currently, Hercules is near the bottom of possible candidates to replace Zeus. Despite this. Zeus commented in his trial that Hercules might one day replace him. The second Bob Layton series stated Hercules is destined to father a new race of gods. Athena planned for Hercules to rule as a new all-father at the end of chaos war. Still, the current Hercules comes across as far from ready to replace Zeus. He lacks the wisdom, patience, and sheer ability to sit still. I imagine Athena had planned to make him into a puppet ruler. He also lacks the creative mind to fully utilize skyfather-level power.
Do you think Hercules could ever mature to the level needed to succeeded Zeus or properly utilize such power?
