Marvel has announced that fan of Hercules will get their chance to buy comics featuring their favorite bad=ass as the company readies Herc #1 for release.

“This ain’t the heavenly spires of Mount Olympus, the plush comforts of Avengers Tower or some hot night club known where the body shots are on the house. Herc’s in the dark alleys of the Marvel Universe—the mean streets of New York,” said Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “There’s no one to watch his back and, if he doesn’t play it smart, he can be maimed…or even killed. The easy days of life as a god are over.”

Herc #1 and #2 arrive in April 2011.  Herc #1 will have a $3.99 cover price, while Herc #2 sees a price change to $2.99.

    So he’s no longer the funny type? And Cho is no longer with him? Batman with a skirt, pass…

    Shouldn’t he at least use a mace?

    Is it just me? or is this the same pitch as the Wonder Woman TV show?
