Right before Onslaught and Heroes Reborn Herc left Earth with Deathcry. In what could have been both an interesting and yet creepy implied romantic pairing. So Herc was not present when the Heroes took Onslaught down and left 616. Herc hears while traveling about what happened and returns to earth. He at the time was stripped of his "Godhood" and Joined up with Heroes for Hire. Having an extreme amount of Survivors Guilt he became an Alcoholic. He also teamed up with Bannerless Hulk to make his father bring his friends back. It did not work but he did gain his Godhood back.

And Deathcry was the one doing all the chasing, which totally makes it OK and not creepy or wrong, I'm sure.

There was a period between his return, and his joining Heroes for Hire, when he showed up in an issue of X-Men, to recruit Quicksilver, with the goal of getting the surviving Avengers back together. Along with Black Widow, this 3-person team appeared in the Imperial Guard miniseries, but subsequently fell apart.

Actually, Zeus offered to restore Hercules' immortality, but he refused it. But within like a year or so Marvel had started ignoring that he'd ever lost his immortality, he'd gone back to dressing and talking like he used to, and despite the more recent Hercules solo books doing TWO "Hercules Saga" re-tellings of his history, they ignored this entire period both times, while devoting space to less-important stuff. I suppose the logical explanation is "Zeus pretended to go along with his boy's wishes, but just gave Herc his immortality back whether he wanted it or not", but it's never been explained anywhere to my knowledge.

Anyone know if the Handbooks ever made up an answer for what happened?
