I am so glad that this community gets it. Hades was a pretty decent guy. With the Judeo-Christian background in the US Zeus gets the benevolent god picture and Hades gets Satan. This is crap. Hades did a job that needed to get done. While Zeus was off turning into a swan and attacking women, Hades did his job. No glamour. Few people praying to him. Just a dude doing his job. Bad people got punished. Good people got a good deal. Much respect.
I thought Hades' plane was the land of the dead, not hell
@Darkmoon Knight, it was, and it was split into three main sections:
1. The Elysian Fields, for the heroic and virtuous souls.
2. The Asphodel Meadows, for the average souls.
3. Tarturus, which was basically Hell. Assholes went here.
@Doctor Krieger, Yea, and I feel like he and Persephone would prefer to hang in the Fields. Also there'd be no way that even the Greeks would worship a god that simply drags them to hell when they're dead.
@TheRatMan, if I remember correctly, Hades had his own living arrangements. I just can't remember what they were. I learned about it way back in middle school.
@Doctor Krieger, Also the Isle of the Blessed, for souls thrice reincarnated each time attaining Elysium.
@Doctor Krieger, no. Tartarus was different. The Fields of Punishment was for assholes, Tartarus was for monsters, immortals, and REALLY REALLY bad dudes. Like hell's hell.
@Baileyjrob, for example: their father after they chopped him into pieces
Hades helmet makes him invisible you uncultured swine
@Guy Fawkes, Yeah and he doesn't have it by the time he's with Persephone. He returned it to the people he got it from, and they gave it to Perseus.
As crappy as they were, I liked how they did Hades in the percy Jackson films. His living room was full of guitars and amps and I wanna jam with the god of the dead.
They're a good dog Persephone
Cerberus actually means spotted. So hades God of death and ruler of the underworld named his dog spot.
