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
Legends of the Multi-Universe (Menslady's story)
Hades is like any Disney villain at first glance. He seemed to be a loyal ally to Megatron and his stand against the Disney Angels and was helping him. Despite the fact he has came closer than any Disney villain to kill Mickey.
The B Team Storyline
He is a member of Slade's team and acts as his 3rd in command after Slade and Anti Cosmo as he formed the ensemble with the two and is Slade's top agent other than Anti Cosmo. While Slade also has HIM, Hades is the primary provider of Slade's connections and is the face of providing Slade with teammates and an larger army, being charismatic and upbeat certainly helps.
