Heartwarming / The Incredible Hercules

  • The way Cho and Herc resolve the 'Prisoner's Dilemma'. Hephaestus captures Herc and Amadeus and puts them each in a cell with a button. If one pushes his button, he will die but the other will go free. If neither of them push the button, they both die. What happens? They both push their buttons immediately at the same time and both go free.
  • Fall of An Avenger, first issue.
  • Herc had a hospital built for terminal demi-god and monster children!
    • The kids find solace in not only being loved and cared for in their remaining days, but safe in the knowledge that even when they are gone, their memories will live on in the immortal god of heroes, Hercules
    • Doubles as a Tear Jerker, since the visitors are there to liquidate the home, after Hercules's death
      • But they don't
  • Incredible Hercules #115: Hercules, a textbook example of a Boisterous Bruiser if there ever was one, tells his friend Amadeus not to destroy SHIELD. Herc begs him not to make the same mistakes of letting his anger get the better of him and hurt everybody around and failing to learn from his mistakes. Amadeus listens and hugs his friend before they teleport away from the incoming missiles.
  • The 2005 Hercules limited series begins with Hercules being absolutely furious with the rest of the Avengers for not honouring Thor along with the other fallen Avengers (after the events of Avengers Disassembled). When they point out that they don't know for sure that Thor is dead, Hercules asks if they think he'd be in such a state if were not true.
  • When Amadeus takes a trip into the afterlife, he runs into Ben Parker, who we see is enjoying a peaceful and happy afterlife.
