    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?

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.

Do you walk around with a God of Wars tier list to rank him as that unimpressive for a "God of War"?

He beat up A-Bomb. He walked through time like nothing, twice, brought a building down with a single arm swing, managed to take punches from an all out Sentry and cut his body, was winning against Moonstar until we learned that a higher ranked Goddess gave her an "anti Ares" power up, gave Hercules a great skilled fight, made a squad of Avengers and Fury`s little own army (post CW) run when he showed up, overloaded Rogue and had gambit shit bricks, fought Miaboshi..

He did also impressive stuff before. He gave Namor a pretty good fight underwater (first meeting) and during Olympus Siege, Namor had to use Cap`s shield to get the definite edge. In both brief encounters with Balder that he has had, it was inconclusive. He took control of Masterson`s body and will and used him against the Avengers. When Thor went awol in his warrior madness days he had a better showing against the Thunderer than Pluto.

For a guy who was a villain 90% of the time, the character got better stuff than casually mentioned.
