History

The legendary hero Hercules fathered a son, Argo, with an unidentified woman in San Diego, and seemingly abandoned the family after going on a mission with the Avengers. It turned out that when many of the Avengers were killed or injured in battle with the alternate-reality Thunderguard, Hercules was driven mad with grief and rage. For his own protection, and that of others, he was then imprisoned for a decade by SHIELD, in the Mount Athena super-secure facility in upstate New York.

When Argo and a new generation of Avengers got past a number of traps and security systems, they encountered a maddened Hercules. Argo, being mad at his father for abandoning him and his mother a decade ago, attacked his father in a rage (Hercules wasn't fighting back as penance for what he thought were his grievious sins). Argo would have critically injured Hercules, had Thunderstrike not interfered. When Argo saw the emotional state his father was in, the two share a tearful reconcilation. Argo stated that he was going to help his father recover, and try to bring his family back together.[citation needed]
