@theacidskull:

Breaking the time barrier, punching holes in reality and even hold a tornado.

Also toon force or silly to look at powers have been fairly successful over the years Green Lantern is the obvious one in my opinion.

By the looks of things... he looks quite godly enough :)

That said I do agree that Marvel's Gods tend to be more human than what you might expect. Herc for instance is the sort of chap that will show up at your house to go drinking. But I also think that is why they tend to work as superheroes, that they act human means that we readers can relate to them. As for powers, I think Marvel is well aware of how problematic an ever-expanding powerset can be due to how their classical age Thor and Dr. Strange could do just about anything.

I think the only way we should see his power increase is if he can do impossible strength feats due to him being a mystical god being. Something like he could catch light, or hold a tornado, push back a wave. Physically it wouldn't make sense but I think as a god it would be pretty cool.

Like holding the heavens?

@raynorj:

Exactly like holding the heavens.

Also in the later Herc series with no powers he could hear prayers and it described it as it should make him stronger but as he currently had no powers his allies got stronger.

This is a great idea!

@powerherc: I know right. Thats how i imagine how his strength should work. It would explain some feats aswell like holding the heavens.

Yes, plus it would explain any future feat anyone could ever conceive. Absolutely any strength feat could be explained and thus, be possible.

That's kinda toon force :P

I'd say that he should do things like hulk does, holding a tornado is funny, breaking the time barrier is badass :D

Holding a tornado?

Didn't Thor and Hercules once punch a dimensional portal closed? I think they can already do that.

Yes, Hercules and Thor punched a dimensional portal closed in "Avengers" #100.
