    1. Don't be fooled by the title; this really has next to nothing to do with Civil War II. This is just volume two of Dan Abnett's great Hercules series, repackaged to attract more readers.I really enjoyed this volume; it wraps up all the loose ends from volume one and really finishes things with a bang. I'm not giving it five stars as there were a few little things that irked me but nothing really worth going into. I loved this modern take on Hercules; it was great to see him grow as a character an [...]


    2. I wish I had enjoyed this more. It was good, but it just didn't quite make it all the way for me. I've always thought Hercules was getting the raw end when compared to Thor at Marvel, so it was nice to see someone trying to redeem him. And I'll pretty much pick up anything with Gilgamesh in it (except now he's being treated like Hercules used to be treated, like a joke). Oh well.


    3. Poor Theseus got a really raw deal in this--especially compared to the treatment of Hercules. This felt a little bit hurried/rushed and not as well-grounded as the first volume of Hercules. Definitely after reading Hercules my expectations were high, and unfortunately, I was left a little disappointed here with this continuation of his story into Civil War II. I feel like this is just the inevitable end result of Marvel being an Event-driven hot mess these days. If Abnett had been given the time [...]


    4. Really just a continuation of the Hercules series that has basically nothing to do with Civil War 2. If you've been reading and enjoying the Hercules series, here you go. Otherwise, there's nothing to see here.


    5. This ended up being the continuation of the earlier Hercules series I really enjoyed. This picks up right where that left off, with Herc in a bar looking at a whiskey and trying not to drink it. However, because Herc's series was prematurely canceled and this is ostensibly a Civil War II tie-in, it was resolved far too quickly and easily. I liked the inclusion of other mythical heroes, like Beowulf and Theseus, but yeah, American Gods this was not.


    6. Methinks NOT!Ughhh not only did this waste my time with it's ugh, don't make me say itBut I actually kinda found this offensive.No, I don't wanna be one of THOSE people,it's just that, the depiction of Gilgamesh seemed ludicrous and (therefore) disrespectful.Is it too much to ask for some cultural literacy from a major publication (that I cringe to think how many times this was printed all over the world) ???


    7. I hint at spoilers in this review! Please be warned. :) also, I originally rated this 4 stars, but then felt bad because I feel like there's so much potential here. It may not have always been executed fluidly, but I like this story more than I'm enjoying most Marvel-y things about now. I'm gonna miss it. So I guess 4.5 stars, or something? I really enjoyed this, what with the folklore and the occasional witty lines. It was pretty fun to see the various ancient heroes interacting, with hints of [...]


    8. [Read as single issues]Civil War II isn't very good, but that's a whole other discussion to have. Dan Abnett's Hercules title however was great for the six issues it lasted. This four issue mini-series ties up all the loose ends from that series under the Civil War II banner (probably so it sells better).Civil War II is probably a good thing in this book - it gives a good reason for why Herc can't just call the Avengers for help; they're too busy dealing with the other war going on, so they don' [...]


    9. Gods of War had very little to do with the Civil War II and a whole lot to do with ripped shirtless men yelling at each other. So not exactly my style. That said, there were some parts of it I actually enjoyed. Hercules has some actual interesting character motivations - he's the original hero, but has been largely forgotten by pretty much everyone (including modern heroes). He's been a destructive drunk in the past so has a horrible reputation, which he's trying desperately to overcome. The vil [...]


    10. Bleh, I knew I wouldn't like this but I'm a stupid man who felt he needed to finish this run of Hercules. Don't read this, it's just so boring, how can Hercules be boring? The villain is just forgettable, some piece of crap hack of a villain who embodies modern technology and old gods are useless bleh I want to like this, I do, I WANT a good Hercules story and I don't care if it's a 5 issue mini-series or a one-off. Just just so disappointed in this book and in myself for reading it.


    11. Much better than Dan Abnett's first run at Hercules as Rodney Dangerfield. Still don't care much for Abnett's angle on the character but I sort of did enjoy the book. At least I did last night. Now that I'm thinking about it I'm wondering if I should take more stars off? No where near as good as the Greg Pak Hercules series when he took over the Hulk's book. Now that was all kinds of great fun. This is on the dour side. What's with this weird thing that all the Marvel heroes don't respect/like H [...]


    12. This was a solid read. Nothing amazing but an enjoyable story. If you like Hercules or Dan Abnetts writing I would recommend it.If you only want to read it because it ties into Civil War 2 though you'll be disappointed. The only connection is they BRIEFLY show the battle from the beginning of Civil War II #1 and make some brief mentions of heroes beating up other heroes a handful of times.


    13. Not bad. I expected much worse. Actually the God squad kind of worked and were actually somewhat interesting characters. The Avengers themselves were not handled all that well, but they were at least recognizable. And the backup story of the first meeting of Thor and Hercules was completely okay. 3.5 of 5.



    14. This wasn't anything special, but it was rather likable. The huge cast of characters and touches of humor make up for a story that isn't very original. I also really appreciate that this has a sense of humor about getting Civil War II slapped on the cover in an attempt by the publisher to sell more copies. It would have been annoying otherwise.I read this in single issues, but including the Journey into Mystery Annual in the collected version made me want to bump this up to a solid three stars. [...]


    15. Satisfying conclusion to the story - I just wish it had more time to breathe. I realize the writer was leaving the book for DC pastures so it wasn't going to get it, but I feel another issue or two would have really done the story the justice it deserves. I still enjoyed it, however, and the old Thor comic in the back was a nice bonus.


    16. I really wanted to like this volume as I thought the earlier volume rocked.This one has a great concept with the Gods of War. And while I enjoyed those repackagings.I felt the ending was a little rough.


    17. Not quite as good as the start of the story, but I guess it had too much to easily tie up in these 4 collected issues. Glad to see Herc be a hero and not the drunken joke he had become.


    18. I'm done with this set. After the first two, I see that it has hardly any tie in to Civil War at all and the story is stupid as well. The artwork was great. But that's about it.
