Only to be done away with when John Bryne took over writing duties on Wonder Woman, had Hercules disguise himself as a Earth man called "Champion" in an attempt to seduce Diana in some kind of lame revenge plot only to truly fall in love with her instead. So, basically, the whole storyline went no where and I was left asking the question, "What was the point of this storyline, Bryne?" No point at all.
Herc had a change in attitude only to switch to a revenge plot, accidentally fall in love and nothing ever interesting happening. Like ever.
Bar none, some of John Bryne's worst writing ever.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong.
