Issue #4: Into the Underworld

In the game of Hades, you either win or you die.

Petitioned by the demigod Hercules, the team learned that his godhood had been severed from his mortal body, leaving him powerless and somewhat less boisterous than usual.

Using Antiope’s mystical abilities to open a portal, the group transported themselves to Olympus itself to find her uncle’s essence.

Once there, the team was confronted by Ares, who was somewhat displeased with his daughter for not having caused any death or destruction during her time among the mortals. Defiant, Antiope risked her father’s anger but drove the team further from its goal.

Luckily, Lily had some connections with Ares, having hung around with him back in the day, participating in massacres. She was able to convince Ares to help them, though he was reluctant to assist his brother Hercules, whom he has never liked.

Once they reached the underworld, the team encountered Charon, ferryman to the river Styx. Bandit handed him a $20 bill for their journey, and the team was able to safely cross the river of souls.

The team confronted Pluto/Hades, who revealed that he had traded Baron Zemo for Hercules’ essence, and that he wasn’t interested in giving it back.

After a pitched battle, in which the team was able to defeat a phalanx of Pluto’s skeletal legion, thanks to Han-ah’s quick thinking, Pluto called a halt to the battle. Lily had been brought to the brink of death by Pluto’s magic, and Tara had nearly been torn in half by the Cerberus. Pluto offered to play one last game, for Hercules’ essence and Lily’s survival. Tara chose the game; Battleship. With a cry of utter despair, “You sunk my Battleship!” Pluto was forced to surrender, though he disputed the results, insisting wily Tara had moved her Patrol Boat.

With Hercules’ essence in tow, the team returned to their apartment, where a grateful Hercules gifted his niece with the Omphalos stone, intended to provide its bearer with powerful Precognitive abilities.

Hercules then revealed that he knew the location of Zemo’s base! As it turned out, he’d been attacked there while investigating some strange mystical phenomena.
