Subj: Ares was a poor god of war in Mythology, it was Athena that was beloved!Posted: Sun Jan 22, 2012 at 03:29:22 pm EST (Viewed 9 times)

Quote:has Marvel Ares had any battles of note? All I remember ever reading or seeing were one to two page curb stomps against him. Even with his strength enhanced or as an anti-hero I cannot remember him having any memorable battles. IIRC, didn't Hercules watch almost bored and have a casually conversation with Thor while Thor battled the thrice-strength enhanced Ares? I think Skaar had a skirmish with Ares during the Wolverine/Romulus storyline. He did fairly well against Nate Grey, but later it was implied Nate may have let Ares win and I cannot see what stopped Nate from telekineticly throwing Ares across the city. Has he had anything impressive over the years?
Quote:He beat A-bomb pretty badily in their meeting. That is his best showing that I remember offhand. For a god of war he is not that impressive at all. Which is depressing for me. Not that I love the guy but he should be the most militant and combat capable god around. Instead, he is really second tier if not third tier.
Maybe him and Athena should switch attributes then.
Everybody hated and despised Ares, he was a bastard, he was all that was wrong and bad in war and Athena was all that was good and just in it.
