Comments: I’m a self diagnosed ninja-holic so it was a only matter of time until I whipped up The Hand.
At this point in my setting, they are still just The Hand, without DD's leadership. For now...

Comments: I wasn’t real thrilled with Herc back in my early comic days, but he grew on me once I got back into them. Then I decided to pick up The Incredible Hercules. One of the best moves I ever made. I loved that book. He and Amadeus Cho just rocked the house with Greg Pak writing them to start and then other writers picking up from there. They made him into a funny, charming, arrogant, flawed but truly heroic character and not the Thor-lite he had been for years. I am loving him leading the Chaos War and I cannot wait to pick up the trade.
This is Herc in his usual power set up, not the mega-godlike powers he currently has, which we know will not last. And no mace. Don't dig the mace, really, but it did come in handy when he was imitating Thor and it was enchanted to look like Mjolnir (see pic below). That was a funny arc, especially when Herc had messed things up and Thor had to come back to Asgard dressed as Herc to battle him and set everything straight. And don't fret, Amadeus Cho is coming soon.
AND A HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY FROM J-MART!
Clean Up 2/17/11: Herc goes up to PL14 as I continue to move my builds up to DCA style power levels.
Clean Up 11/12/11: Really happy with this Herc update. I got his Bow and his Mace in to where they are not unbalancing or take away from him being a grappler above all else.
Clean Up 10/27/12: Another tweak to Herc, taking him back up to PL14...again...
