Which Hercules do you like the best?
Radical one looks pretty cool, mythological original I am fond of, but yea Marvel Hercules. He brings a whole new angle to the myth character, which is just incredibly awesome. He is one of Marvel's coolest, funniest, most underrated and fun characters, and is pretty deep too. He has had some amazing dramatic moments, recalling his story with his wife for example during his modern day labors. He's a good man's man character. Not in an offensive way, but Hercules unapologetically enjoys female company and the female form, loves to fight and give thy gift, loves to drink, he still rocks the facial hair, loves to do stupid but awesome things, and is best mates with a bunch of other awesome dudes .
Marvel's Hercules is the best to me no doubt. I would say objectively he is the best developed as well.
Its have something to like about them. Kevin Sorbot has it in a corny sort of good guy way. He is too moral for most versions of Hercules, but I still like his series.
I think I like Marvel Hercules best. It is very rooted in the mythological and is updated enough morally to fit into the modern world. He is a fun character. The only time I don't like him is when he is written as too much of a buffoon.
I like Radical Hercules because that is how I envision the mythological Hercules to be and how Marvel's Hercules probable was. He is a noble hero with anger-management problems. If you cross him he will not hesitate to kill you. He is a product of the times he lives in and weary of his hard life.
Radical Hercules, then Disney, then Marvel. They all come close together, and they're all good, but that's the order of awesomeness I have chosen. If I want insanely cool and violent battles, well told stories, and stellar art to boot, Radical takes it. Disney's Herc gives me that light hearted, feel good fun from a great Disney story, and Marvel's Herc has just been funny, and it's kinda nice to see the tale of a mythic warrior in a modern place. It's interesting.
It's Heracles Algethi./NOT,I'm kidding.
It's really Marvel's Hercules,I like how he is funny and still badass at the same time,but still a very underrated character,I didn't knew about him until some time ago good a found a article about the Incredible Hercules series at a brazilian blog about comics.
I didn't read the Radical comics one,but he seens the closer to the original source,seens very good.
@PowerHerc: Hmm, I'd have to say mythological Hercules for me, with Disney Hercules running a close second and Marvel Hercules a third. Odd numbering I know, but I'm more or less basing it on which version I was introduced to first. Myth Herc just from being a mythology nerd, Disney Herc doesn't need an explanation, and Marvel's Herc because I never really read any of his books and only knew Marvel had their own version of him due to him appearing in Thor's books now and again.
@Mr. Dead Pool: Marvel Hercules had a pretty good run in "Incredible Hercules." Check the series out - you'll probably like how well Marvel Hercules is tied into actual mythology! Who knows? You might even move Marvel's version of Hercules up a notch or two.
It's always good to hear from a Hercules fan (no matter which version).
