    That reminds me of he Justice League arc “World War III” when every human being on Earth was temporarily conferred super powers and they all flew up into the sky like that (not to be confused with World War III during 52).

    It is kinda funny (lame?) for Wolverine to fly into the cosmic fray with his claws popped. If being mystically imbued with a portion of Zeus’ godpower doesn’t work, he’s hoping getting all “snikt” against the evil deity will do the trick.

      or the return of “What if…?” and the heroes all gathering and flying into space FOR NO REASON.

      I skipped the Cho mini, but told dealer to pull this for me.

    Okay this does look kind of corny BUT… Pak and Van Lente haven’t steered me wrong yet with their brilliant Hercules and Amadeus books so I will definitely be picking these up.

    I hate to admit it but the kid in me just pushed aside my cynic nature and said “Woah that looks cool!”

    Herc not being an overbearing, immature dumb-ass is interesting (but let’s hope the doesn’t stay that way forever.)
