* TooDumbToLive: Hercules has been granted [[TheOmniscient omniscience]], along with omnipotence, which would allow him to know before hand if a plan is going to work or the proper course of action to win. He never uses it which causes him to make one mistake after another including letting Mikaboshi into heaven by the front door. He also inisist on punching Mikaboshi even after it doesn't work. It takes getting his butt kicked, his hyper-smart friend Amadeus Cho, [[MotherEarth Gaea]], and finally an attempt at consulting his omniscience to make him consider trying something else. Except he goes back to trying to punch Mikaboshi and is losing until Cho tricks Mikaboshi into another universe. Some god of gods.

Added DiffLines:

* EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: Near the climax Gaea explains that she was the first being to emerge from primordial chaos. Earth is the final battleground of the Chaos War and it's where Amatsu-Mikaboshi, who is a counterpart to Eternity itself, was imprisoned.


The Japanese evil god Amatsu-Mikaboshi, who got a hold on many enslaved [[FantasyPantheon alien gods]] during ComicBook/SecretInvasion, goes on a rampage across the universe intending to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the entire creation]] and return everything to primordial chaos. Unlike [[ComicBook/{{Annihilation}} Annihilus]] however, he takes out gods and other supernatural entities first. Hercules, who has just come back from his supposed death with a significant power boost, assembles a team of [[PhysicalGod gods]] and [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens close enough individuals]] to combat the king of chaos.

* DoAndroidsDream: ComicBook/TheVision is one of the Avengers temporarily brought BackFromTheDead, suggesting he is actually a living being. This contradicts ComicBook/TheThanosImperative, where a parallel universe Vision was immune to posession by {{Eldritch Abomination}}s specifically because as a [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot synthezoid]] he was never really alive to begin with

* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Hercules trying to give a heads up on the end times is stymied by inexperience with his recent omnipotence. His cries are quite literally explosively thunderous and his steps earthquaking.

* LikeABadassOutOfHell: Notable example is the Abomination. Before death he got trounced by a single Hulk. After power boost from Chaos King he knocked around ''several''.

After the IncredibleHercules series ran its course and a couple of miniseries featuring Amadeus Cho the plot threads left hanging were finally resolved in this Crossover event.

* [[spoiler:PocketDimension: How the Chaos King is dealt with; by putting him, at full power, in a dimension where he believes he ''did'' win... while the majority of the multiverse has a reset that brings back those he killed.]]

to:

* [[spoiler:PocketDimension: How PocketDimension: A provisional solution was to move most people on Earth to one of those. Amadeus did not like to play God and decide who lives and who dies. Eventually, he found another solution: [[spoiler:put the Chaos King is dealt with; by putting him, god, at full power, in a dimension this dimension, where he believes he ''did'' win... while the majority of the multiverse has a reset that brings back those he killed.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Played with. In the flashback of his first moment after being created, Vision discussed with Ultron about Rene Descartes. Vision said that he was incorrect, because an imperfect being (Henry Pym) created a perfect one (Ultron). Ultron was infuriated by his answer: yes, Rene Descartes was wrong, right, but not because of that. Descartes was incorrect because he was [[PunyEarthlings human]]! Ultron is not, and he generates his own logic! But, as both of them were taking deductions from Ultron's InsaneTrollLogic premise (he's not perfect), then ''none'' of them were actually right.

Added DiffLines:

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Chaos wants to destroy all the multiverse, just for the heck of it.

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Hercules comes back from the dead, but nobody finds it surprising or stare at him in disbelief. See ApatheticCitizens and SeenItAll.

Added DiffLines:

* ApatheticCitizens: Hercules comes back from the dead to announce the death of the universe, but who cares? Is it that part of the month again?

Added DiffLines:

* SeenItAll: Iron Man is not surprised at all to see Hercules resurrected. That's a common tradition in the superhero community.
