    Overall, Hercules is an incredible read (sorry, PUN!) every month. But the issue of Death in the MU has been addressed a lot. One point made in the story is that all the various lands of the dead (Hel, Valhalla, Hades, etc.) are all the same place, but like a different port of entry based on the beliefs of the dying. In Thor Annual #10, this was said to be not the case, and that every place was different. When the Death Gods tried to merge their lands, it brought forth the attention of the Demogorge, and had to be separated to make things right again. I'd like to see Mr. Pak (whose writing and knowledge I am very impressed by) review that issue and perhaps add some more light to it.

I think Pak's explanation fits with what came before. Each god rules their own realm, but they do all access the same pool of dead people. A person's beliefs determine which death realm they end up in, but to some of those who do have unfinished business they can get a chance to resurrect. Due to Hercules' presence Pluto is one of the most well-known death gods. And if you think of the problems the other death gods have had of late than his power could easily have increased. Since many people know of him they could on in a sense belief in him and end up in his realm.

    Also, I would like to know how the Cosmic Entity of Death relates to the gods/demons we've seen. Are all death gods just front men for Death?

It's been stated in handbooks and such that death gods and demons have a pact with Death to allow them to collect souls. Pretty much Death just wants people to die and stay dead and does not particularly care who rules the dead.
