Hades is the Greek God of the Dead, Mystery, and Wealth, as well as the ruler of the Underworld. Hades was worshiped by the Ancient Greeks and Romans (under the name Pluto), before he was slain by Ares during the War of the Gods while attempting to help protect Mankind from him.


After usurping the Titans, Hades and his siblings,[1] the Olympians, divvied up the power, with Hades claiming rule of the Underworld.[2]

War of the Gods

As his jealousy for Humans grew increasingly over the years, Ares soon used the added power of humanity's violence to strike down the other Olympians, including Hades, one by one until only Zeus remained.[3]
