Preview of the first issue of the new Herc series:

There is some debate over at comicbook resources about Herc's actions. Some are calling him a murderer for killing those thugs. They think he should be more like other street-level heroes like Daredevil or Batman that don't kill people. That if he does he should not be called an Avenger or even a hero. Others are arguing that it is still self-defense and Hercules comes from another time where heroes did kill. Kill or be killed is most of Herc's life. As a full mortal he can no longer joke around in battle like he once did. What does the Thor board think?

As for the rest of the preview. Cool use of mythological weapons. I'm wondering about the Warhawks since they started out as Ares's mortal followers. Considering their god became an Avenger are they just acting out? A splinter group? Would Ares currently approve or disapprove of their actions? Would he fight against them if he knew what they were doing?
