By my father's beard...the power, the strength I feel surging through me! Since the end of the Chaos War...I feared I might never feel so close to my former divinity again! More powerful than the strongest draught is the sensation...I'm capable of anything...everything!
Hercules has always loved cities! It is there where the crowds are--where reveling and merry-making are to be found! And who can enjoy the good life as much as an Olympian god?!! Take me then to your city! Hercules commands!
In truth, 'twas Hercules who defeated himself! No warrior can win every battle! But, he can try to succeed! He can have faith in himself! Hercules failed because he stopped believing! NEVER shall he do so again!
You already move through this world somewhat removed. It would devastate me to watch that intensify as you ruminate too heavily on how immortality will change you. Over the millennia to come, you will experience emotions you don't yet know are even possible. The only one that will keep you sane is joy. Do not waste time mourning for those whom you outlive. Instead, revel in their friendships. If you savor them to their fullest, forever remembering those you meet along the way, the loneliness is tempered... because they shall then be immortal, too.
Aye...I do. And before all those who have assembled here...who will sing the epic tale of this battle to the end of time...let it be proclaimed...that mighty Thor has finally, definitively, and completely been defeated...by Hercules, the lion of Olympus!
You call yourselves heroes? Today you earn the name. Now listen that you may know your enemy... the Japanese named him 'Amatsu-Mikaboshi'... Lord of Darkness and Chaos... but he is far more than a mere god. Indeed, he was the whole universe before the beginning of everything... and he longs to return to that condition. He destroyed Mount Olympus, striking down father Zeus himself... Then he laid claim to the slave gods of the Skrulls... and marched across creation, slaying alien pantheon after alien pantheon, and adding to his armies. His aim is nothing less than the destruction of all reality. Piece by piece, until he is once again the only thing in existence. Now I've heard your laughter and your sneers. And I don't care. For I know far better than you ever will... what a fool I have always been. But hear me, friends, with thee eyes now so wide open... I have chosen you. Because as infinitely strong as I have become... I need you. I was sired by a god, but I have walked among mortals these thousands of years... and I know that you were born to foolishly reach beyond all reason... to stand together in the impossible fight -- and turn back apocalypse once and for all! ... Now, heroes -- I grant you each a fraction of my power -- so we may stare down oblivion ...and against its eternal no... shout 'yes!'
You call me the God of Heroes? What heroes teach us...is what the gods should be. So now, no matter what the cost...I undo all your cold wisdom has wrought, sister Athena! As my first -- and last act as All-Father -- I do what any true god should do -- what the heroes among us do every day. I give up everything...to protect...to heal...to restore...and then to walk away.
You are summoned by the power of Hercules, my friends. And I am sorry. You've been through too much. Your bodies are broken...and your hearts are breaking...for the ties that bind you have shattered. How can you possible be ready for more?
By Ymir's frost-covered beard, art thou mad? I create a new secret identity as Sigurd Jarlson-- I entrust one Avenger with my address-- Thou com'st hither to ask my aid-- and then thou wouldst consume fried fowl ere returning to our allies! By my troth, Olympian! Every time I consider thee a full-fledged god, thou remindest me of thy half-human heritage!
You still lack the proper respect...but after tasting the poisonous mortality you have borne...I begin to understand. So prepare yourself for your reward...from a father whose heart surges with gratitude...and pride.
