... I do like the character - always have. And when Bendis took it out, I had hopes for him, hopes that were half-satisfied: He became a very interesting character indeed, but yes, he lacks that terrifying edge. As he is he is a fair match for Wolverine.
He should be a better fighter than Thor, and as strong as him. He should be able to rally everybody around him in a fighting frenzy. He should have a "named" weapon and armor. He should also be one of Marvel's toughest characters to kill.
The most beautiful part of it is, that is still possible.
Why should he be a better fighter than Thor? The Asgardians are known for being a WARRIOR RACE. Thor has centuries of Battle hardened experience and has fought greater foes,in power and strength, and won, through the years. Thor is the model for being the Warrior's warrior. Olympians, Herc included, are generally portrayed as "floating around in the clouds, drinking, and chasing women/men. Asgardians are somewhere kickin someones butt. Fighting is what they do. Herc, and Hulk for that matter, should be just another walk in the park for Thor. Seriously.
