    One question: Why did Hercules replace Thor on the main roster? I'm okay with Hercules, but why did Thor leave after #331?

Thor #432 was the same month as Avengers #332.

In Thor #432 Loki kidnapped Kevin Masterson and critically injured Eric Masterson's friend Susan Austin. Thor at that point chose to kill Loki. For this punishment Thor was banished by "Odin" and Eric Masterson was given the power of Thor. In reality when Thor killed Loki his spirit possessed Odin and it was Loki who banished Thor. Eric came under the impression that Mephisto was holding Thor's soul in a soul shroud. Odin's soul was the one actually trapped in the soul shroud by Mephisto. Eventually it was revealed Thor was trapped in Eric's mind and that Odin was Loki and Odin eventually regained his body.

There was also a bit about a past Loki meeting the Thor Corps (Eric, Dargo, Beta Ray Bill) due to Zarrko the Tomorrow Man. Past Loki becoming aware of his impending death struck a deal with Mephisto to help him avoid his death and rule Asgard...but in the end Mephisto's agenda was revealed to be that he wanted to get Loki's soul not Thor or Odin's. So once Odin kicked Loki out of his body Loki's soul went to Mephisto and Eric was soon made into Thunderstrike.
