Hades is the Greek god of the Underworld and the main antagonist of the 1997 Disney animated feature film, Hercules. While the Hades of Greek mythology was not particularly malevolent, he is made into an evil figure in the Disney film, where he attempts to steal the Mount Olympus throne from his eldest brother, Zeus. However, unlike the original who was gloomy and rarely speaking, this Hades is upbeat and hilarious.
Hades is one of the most popular Disney villains, in addition to being one of the franchise's primary members. He is voiced by James Woods
Best Friends: Slade, Anti Cosmo, and Bender
