HERCULES


You are wise indeed to seek the aid of the mighty Hercules!

Come, let us share the Gift of Battle with these miscreants!

Chapter 1 - Excalibur: Mission 5 - God Save the QueenEdit

Heroic BattleEdit

StartEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Thunder God, so-called, do you speak the language of stones?


I speak not the language of clownish Greeks. Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I have bent my ear to this boulder, and it tells me you are in need of a gift.


A gift? Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I bring you the Gift of Battle!


Haha! I accept! Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


RepeatEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I've slaked my thirst for a fight, but now I'm hungry for battle again!


Took you long enough. You Greeks! So lazy. Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Barbarian! When your people invent geometry, talk to me of laziness!


LoseEdit

Let that be a lesson. Strength of arm belongs to the Norse. Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Lesson? The Norse learned all their lessons from the Greeks. You'd still be counting on your fingers if it wasn't for us.

One lucky break is no lesson at all. Let's see you do it again!



Done! Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Odinson! You fight like that and call yourself Odinson!? Your father has to squint through his one eye to detect any sign of your valor!

And now, for a meal. Fighting makes a mighty hunger!



Eat while you can. You will feed through a straw when Mjolnir has broken your face. Thor:
Thor-B 1 Icon


Chapter 2 - Crazy Eights: Mission 1 - AntiquityEdit

Mission StartEdit

Back to top ↑

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
New York, New York. Where all the world's loony cults come to hit the big time.

The latest appears to be the Circle of 8. They're popping up like roaches, and it looks like they're on a bit of a killing spree.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We've got field reports from Hercules himself. Herc, why don't you tell it your way.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
There is little to tell. While walking through the warrens of Chinatown, I did witness a group of barbarians. I stepped in and knocked their heads together... not as hard as I might have.

It was you, Stark, who first turned the talk to this Circle of 8.



Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Well, Herc, they've killed Typeface and Obnoxio the Clown. We didn't like those guys, but S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn't condone ritual murder.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Get them off the street and into a padded cell.


Mini-Boss - Crimson DynamoEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
As is my habit, I was reading stories about myself in the library, when who should appear?


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
That's Crimson Dynamo.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
And a group of these cultists of the octadic circle!


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Then you probably should do something about it.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I shall!


StartEdit

You are no god! Just crazy Greek man! I know how to deal with crazy Greek man. Crimson Dynamo:
Crimson Dynamo Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
And I have defeated many a man in armor. Perhaps not crimson armor, but color matters not. To battle!


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Mystics, cultists, visionaries. There was a time when they were dealt with.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Well, Herc, we can't put everyone in the Brazen Bull nowadays.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Matters of the occult should remain hidden. When they come out into the light, they should be crushed.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
I'm with you there. But the times are strange... and getting stranger.


Boss - Living PharaohEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Herc, we have another mystical dirtbag to report: The Living Pharaoh, location incoming.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Egyptians, bah. I think little of those so obsessed with death and cats.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
I don't think this one has any cats. He does have a group of Circle of 8 cultists attacking one of the library's off-site collections.


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
We're trying to find out what they're after, but priority one is stopping them.


StartEdit

A Socratic question: How many delusional would-be gods does S.H.I.E.L.D. have on its payroll? Living Pharaoh:
Living Pharaoh Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
You? An Egyptian pretender to a throne he has only imagined? You question my nature!?

I would have destroyed you in any event, but now I will relish it yet more!



CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
There are Scandinavian runestones here. This pretend Pharaoh might have wanted them.

The Norse! Now there were people who knew how to live! ...but do not repeat that to the Odinson.



Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Our lips are sealed. What does the Living Pharaoh want with Norse runes?


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Maybe the question is what does the Circle of 8 want with them?


Mission CompleteEdit

Back to top ↑

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
The hierarchy of the Circle of 8 is still a mystery.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Or hierarchies.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
We don't know. It's clear they've drawn the attention of established villains and enemy groups.

The sooner we get to the bottom of their goals and origin, the sooner we know whether they're just cannon fodder.



Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Also we need to understand the reasons for the killing spree. Is it related to Incursions?


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
We'll know soon enough. For now, savor victory.

Now it's time for the hero's reward. Wine! Women! Maybe even song...



Chapter 4 - Globetrotting: Mission 3 - Tourist TrapEdit

Back to top ↑

DeployEdit

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Herc, if you head south to the next light and take a left, you'll see an abandoned bowling alley.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Yes. What of it?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
It's full of Circle of 8 cultists.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Ah. To battle!


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I have sent these cultists to their afterlives. But before I arrived, they did some killing of their own. The fallen... it has been long since they were counted among the living.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Can you get a camera on the bodies... okay, thanks. Running facial recognition...

Rattan and Luis Reyes.



Chapter 5 - Spot Treatment: Premium Mission: Deific InadequacyEdit

Mission StartEdit

Back to top ↑

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
HYDRA is making another move in Wakanda. Their faux-Avengers are all on the scene, and Man-Ape is turning the White Gorillas into Iso-8-deranged soldiers again.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
HYDRA! What do these little men know of that great beast? If it lived, it would devour them all and then die of indigestion, belching from every head.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Hercules, what are you doing here, anyway?


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
If that blood-sotted half-brother of mine can take his axe to HYDRA, I can do him one better!


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Sibling rivalry, Nick. Underestimated recruiting tool.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
I'll keep that in mind.


Black Panther:
Black Panther Icon 1
Step lightly in my country, Fury.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
You don't have to tell me that, T'Challa. We kept Ares on a short leash, and we'll do the same with Hercules.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Agent, you and Herc work together. Let's get HYDRA out of Wakanda once and for all.


Mini-Boss - BowmanEdit

Back to top ↑

StartEdit

Stand down, tough guy, before we make you clean out another stable. Bowman:
Bowman Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
You joke! Ha ha! I joke in return: When Olympus sees fit to send me on more chores, I will find them easier when I can use your skull as a dustpan! Ha ha!


RepeatEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Arrows are for cowards! If you must resort to missiles, use the missiles of a warrior! Throw stones!


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
This Bowman found that no arrow can slow down the Son of Zeus. What next?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Stay ready, Hercules. We're about to lock you into another mission.


Mini-Boss - Tactical ForceEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Tactical Force is commanding a squad of HYDRA and White Gorilla troops here.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Armor cannot protect a man from his own cowardice. We shall see if this Iron Man impostor can withstand the blows that slew the Nemean Lion.


StartEdit

Cool it, Hercules. Someone went and got you all worked up for nothing. Tactical Force:
Tactical Force Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
For nothing? By Olympus, not so! For battle!


RepeatEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Patroclus and Hector both died wearing the armor of Achilles. Do you think the garb of Iron Man will save you?


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Worked up! Indeed! What next? Stark! What next? Do enemies still stand against us?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Oh, we've got plenty of enemies. Wakanda is lousy with HYDRA and White Gorillas gone bonkers on Iso-8. Plenty for us to do.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I see. Then to the task!


Boss - Militant/HammerEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Militant and Hammer have just connected with a group of HYDRA soldiers and White Gorillas at this location.


Black Panther:
Black Panther Icon 1
These events have brought too much bloodshed and fear to my people. It must be repaid in kind.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Fear not, T'Challa -- of course you fear nothing, as do I! -- I will erase this blot of HYDRA from your nation's soil.


StartEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
You. You pretend to the might and valor of Captain America?


No pretense. You don't see him around trying to fight us. Militant:
Militant Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
And you. Do you truly imagine yourself to be the Thunder God, the Odinson? He is a barbarian oaf, but mighty. Are you so mighty?


You dare tell me I'm not? Hammer:
Hammer Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I dare!


RepeatEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
You still wear garments to mimic the Avengers? Then learn the lesson Patroclus and Hector learned when they wore the armor of another!


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
The gift of battle is a mighty gift indeed! Which of these dogs and cowards shall we crush and dismember next?


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Well, let's take a look at our strategic map here... any of them? Whatever's left, hit it. But if you see Man-Ape, hit him first.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
You speak my language, Stark.


Epic Boss - Man-ApeEdit

Back to top ↑

StartEdit

You wish to test your strength against M'Baku, who has eaten of the White Gorilla's blood? Man-Ape:
Man-Ape Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I have seen many men drink blood. None of them were ever stronger than me.

Also, I thought you were a hater of techne. Why do you ply your White Gorillas with Iso-8?



Iso-8 fell from the sky. It is no technology. It is raw power. And only raw power will see us through these attacks from other worlds! Man-Ape:
Man-Ape Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Concern yourself with attacks from my other fist first!


RepeatEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Does your gorilla blood give you power, Man-Ape? I have the blood of Zeus! And did not have to wallow in it.


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Gorilla blood. Only a fool or a lunatic could think gorilla blood would make him stronger than me!

Where are the rest of these HYDRA myrmidons? I will dispatch them and then find Ares. It is time to keep score of who has cracked more HYDRA skulls!



Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Crack all of 'em you want, Hercules. Same goes for the White Gorilla forces. Just make sure you minimize the damage to the actual animal-variety white gorillas.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I have no quarrel with apes... but I killed the Hydra myself and it galls me to see these suagroi rallying to that banner. To battle!


Mission CompleteEdit

Back to top ↑

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
A confession: I do take a special pleasure in watching those plagiarizing fake-ass unoriginal ripoff versions of us take a beating. Especially when you're handing it out, Hercules.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
You honor me.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
You hand out a fine beating.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
The gods have granted me certain blessings.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
What's with all this humility? Aren't you supposed to be boasting about breaking bones and winning the adoration of women?


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I shall await Ares' arrival before speaking again of my grandiloquence.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Totally understand. Well, good work out there, Agent. Man-Ape is still out there somewhere. He's not going to let a little thing like HYDRA putting a price on his head stop him.


Special Operations - All Hallows: Mission 2 - The Hoary HostsEdit

DeployEdit

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Hercules, we have a job for you.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Indeed! What labour might this be? Must I slay a few thousand spawn of Hades? Seduce some queen of the fiery realms? Truly, there is no task too great for the mighty—


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We need you to hold up a building.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
...That is all?! Pffft. Out of the way, Man of Iron.


CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
I hope holding a 50 story high-rise over your head wasn't too boring for you, big guy.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Twas better than cleaning the Augean Stables, at least.


Special Operations - The Wild Hunt: Mission 3 - GötterdämmerungEdit

Back to top ↑

Deploy Edit

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Herc. You're a jolly guy. Hail-fellow-well-met sort. Might need you to help us out.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Say the word.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Olympus. The word is Olympus.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
A fine jest, but a serious errand. What is it you want? Speak plainly.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
We need you to go to Olympus and see if the other... gods... are going to get jealous of the Asgardians and start something on their own.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
The jealousies of the gods are beyond me to predict. But I will make the journey and learn what I may.


CompleteEdit

Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
What's the word?


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
You jest again. My tidings, I fear, are without humor.

Ares alone of Olympians takes any interest in mortal doings. The rest are taken up with their own feuds and rivalries.



Special Operations - Cry Havok: Mission 1 - Dragon's KissEdit

Back to top ↑

DeployEdit

StartEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Herc, you're our man here. We need these roadblocks cleared, and while you're at it, if you wanted to reduce the Hellfire Club's manpower, that would be great too.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
The way will be made safe for your soldiers, Stark.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Much appreciated. This is a historic district. Try not to tear it up too much.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
A historic district? I remember the first log cabins around here. Your people have a strange sense of history.


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
The way is clear. And I have preserved the buildings.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
That's just because you saw a tavern.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
What matters the motive if the deed is done?


Special Operations - Dark Reign: Mission 1 - Damage ControlEdit

Mini-Boss - Ironclad/VaporEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
Ironclad and Vapor just tore into a group of Test Subjects here. We could let them go ahead, and watch Dell Rusk turn us into a laughingstock.


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
Or we could take out the U-Foes like the trash they are.

Agent, we are not about to let Dell Rusk--and whoever might be pulling his strings--determine S.H.I.E.L.D.'s business. We'll face up to our mistakes, but we will also face down our enemies.



Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Let us get into this fight before they change their minds!


StartEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Your servitude to Rusk will bring you only defeat... at my hands!


Servitude? Hardly. It's more of a mutually beneficial partnership, if that's not too subtle an idea for you to grasp. Vapor:
Vapor Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Ha! Well boasted! Now back your words up with deeds.


RepeatEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I fear neither metal nor fog!


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Their deeds did not match their words. Few do, once they have boasted of defeating me.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Um, right. So do you mind staying out and finishing this off?


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Stark, sometimes you are as stupid as people think I am. Will I battle on? Try to stop me!


Boss - AresEdit

Back to top ↑

RevealEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Whoa. Ares. Dell Rusk has access to some heavyweights.


Agent Coulson:
Agent Coulson Dialogue
He's cleaning up the Test Subjects in that area, but he's also gone after S.H.I.E.L.D. field teams. Looks like Rusk wants to pick a fight with us using the pretense of collateral damage.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
We figured that part out, Opie. The question is how best to handle it.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I know a question that will drive him to a blind fury.


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Oh, good. That's what we want, is a war god in a blind fury.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Trust me, Stark. No one knows better how to battle Ares.


StartEdit

You. Ares:
Ares Icon


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Me. You can't still be angry about those birds... what hair, O god of war, lieth across thine ass today?


You have mocked me once too often, Hercules. And S.H.I.E.L.D. has made mock of itself by playing at war instead of making war.

That is why I am here. To show you what true war looks like.

Ares:
Ares Icon


RepeatEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Brother-in-arms! Is that the chirping of Stymphalian birds I hear?


CompleteEdit

Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
True war? That was barely a squabble!


Director Fury, you are only postponing the inevitable. It's time for the business of protecting civilian populations to be given to people who know how to handle it. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue


Nick Fury:
Nick Fury Dialogue
With you in charge, using your group of hand-picked mercenaries you'll call heroes.


Don't let Ares hear you call him a mercenary, Director. He'll take on S.H.I.E.L.D. himself... before I even have a chance to defund and disband it. Dell Rusk:
Dell Rusk Dialogue

Herc, you'd be doing us a big favor if you could talk to Ares. By which I don't mean pick a fight with him.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Talk? Ares will not care what I think. But perhaps we will fight, so I say yea! I will do this, Stark!


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
That's the spirit.


CompleteEdit

Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
How'd it go?


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
We fought! Glorious battle!

What need has a warrior of words? Ha! I jest with you, Stark. We spoke, and even so, I know not what he will do.



Mini-Boss - Dark WidowEdit

Black Widow:

She does have a sting... but it doesn't match mine.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
I would suffer that sting, could I get close enough to experience it. A fine deadly woman!


Maria Hill:
Maria Hill Dialogue
Roll up your tongue, Hercules. We're staying professional here.


Hercules:
Hercules Icon 1
Professional? What care I for professional? My professions are women, drink, and battle!


Tony Stark:
Tony Stark Dialogue
Why don't you go pick another fight with Ares? It'll get both of you out of our hair for a while.

Terrific.

By the one-eyed shade of Polyphemus, it rises again!

And I have dispatched it once more!



Tony Stark:
