I know Hercules has superhuman strength and stamina and his ability to fly but what are his other powers?

i didnt get to pick up issue 5 today, but early on it seemed his powers were on the level of odin force thor, but not quite rune king thor, just based off of his fight with ares. he was extremely powerful. able to summon infinity AND galactus at will is amazing. it is hard to compare him to rkt though since rkt didnt have much battle interaction with anybody but mangog. but in issue 4 when herc got the boost and annhilated athena he may now be on rkt level. but, like i said, havent seen issue 5 yet couldnt get out today before work.

@TheGreatOne:
guess i didnt really answer your question fully. as far as powers go, he seemed to be able to see all, or at least all as far as the godly realm is concerned, shown when he was tricked into showing the pantheons. and he summoned two celestial level beings at will, as well as several other heroes for his god squad. he also stopped time in issue 2 or 3, but the power with which he was able to do so was limited, and he was distracted. whether that was due to him trying to overstress his powers over time, or due to his lack of familiarization with those powers is not known. i am sure im missing something, but those are the ones that come to mind.

His powers were basically the standard skyfather package times 100.  So in short he could do whatever he wanted: increase his physical abilities, freeze time, heal others, etc.  Its not so much a question of what he could do, but what he could not do.   He also apparenlty could know anything if he focused on it.  So, despite the claims of him being a skyfather his powers were far beyond what any other skyfather has ever demonstrated except for perhaps the more extreme showings of Silver Age Odin.
 
The enlightened, Super Sayan 2 Herc is about the same except more powerful.

That about sums it up. He has a normal Skyfather's abilities but amplified the same way his strength is in comparison to a normal mortal mans. I mean look at wut he did in the after-math (Though i wish he'd have let himself....oh well ya know?)

He was incredibly powerful, he went toe-to-toe with Chaos King that had eaten 98% of the Multiverse. Then he sacrificed said power to restore the Multiverse the way it was.

@___Living_Tribunal_22__: Eatan 98% of the multiverse and added their power to his own; that's how powerful the Chaos King was, yet Hercules still managed to put the smackdown on him.

He did not sacrificed his powers 
He restored multiverse and then wished himself to be mortal

The way I understood it, Hercules was severely wounded during the final battle against Mikaboshi at the end of the Chaos War and after he'd defeated Mikaboshi, he wanted to repair the damage Mikaboshi had done to the Multiverse. Athena advised Hercules not to do this in his weakaned state, but being the impulsive and heroic guy his is, Herc immediately proceeded to fix the damage. The power and effort required to accomplish this epic feat used up all of his sky-father powers and even his own baseline regular god powers, too. This is why Hercules is now a depowered mortal, not because he consciously wanted/wished/chose to be.

I still think that he simply wanted to Walk away

@D3athstroke
 Why would he want to just walk away?

@D3athstroke: Yeah, I do think Herc wanted to be free from the awesome power he'd attained and responsibility it brought. Though I doubt he intended to become a powerless mortal, by the time he was in the middle of repairing all of existence and realized it would require not only the sky-father power he'd attained but also his own normal godly strength, power and immortality, it was too late; he had to do what had to be done. He had to fix existence. It was the heroic thing to do. It was the only thing to do.

Do you think Hercules is gonna get his power back anytime soon?

I really couldn't hazzard a guess.

Though I wouldn't like him to get his sky-father powers back, I'd like him to return to his traditional strength & power levels and I'd like it to happen soon.

It would be cool if they gave him a hammer like Thor. Don't you think?

No, not really.

At full strength, Hercules doesn't really need weapons (though he could still use them when the situation called for it) and giving him a hammer, specifically, would make him to much like Thor which I think would detract from what makes Hercules his own cool, unique and relevant character.
