Hercules was one of the many superhumans captured and enslaved by the Skrulls to fight in their arena as one of the many "competitors". After Galactus' herald Terrax arrived on Earth to prepare it for Galactus, he caused a power failure which freed all superhumans, including Hercules, from imprisonment.

After Terrax was killed and Galactus was driven off, Hercules, among many other heroes, started rebuilding their world after a century of slavery by the Skrulls.[citation needed]
