Dynamite Entertainment announced Hades will be the next character to join the Disney Villains line, as Elliot Kalan sends the Lord of the Underworld on his own quest.
In Kalan’s new tale, Hades doesn’t get an invite to the weekly brunch at Mount Olympus — which obviously calls for the complete and total destruction of his fellow deities.
In his mission to make that happen, he must get his devilish hands on the legendary Golden Fleece of Colchis. Because the Fleece happens to be guarded by a dragon and legion of soldiers, the lord of darkness therefore has to round up a ragtag party of minions and allies to accomplish his epic quest.
Readers will meet the spider-girl Arachne, emo singer Orpheus, the childlike brute of the Minotaur, and even winged Icarus. A mismatched group like this is bound to not get along, especially when led by the overconfident and arrogant Hades.
Joining Kalan is artist Alessandro Ranaldi.
Disney Villains: Hades #1 arrives in August 2023.
