Those example do not show that Hercules is more powerful then Ares but that he is the better fighter.  A power person can lost to in a fight to some one less powerful.  Captain America is less powerful then most lower tier Bricks such as D-man; however, Cap will beat D-man more often than not. 

Again, I stand by what I say that Ares is more powerful then Hercules.  I do agree that Mortal Hercules is at least as physically strong as Ares and I accept your example of hims winning but he is still not as powerful as Ares.  Those example shows that Ares is often depicted as a wuss despite his power.  I am not saying that the mingling of mortal and god can produce someone with more power then a pure god.  However, I most case that is not so and Hercules is not more powerful than Ares.  He is the better fighter and the greater hero but does not have more power.  Let put it this way.  If  Ares was a "champions character" he would cost way more point to make then mortal hercules. 

While I agree that there's a distinction between skill and power - and that a more skilled opponent can best a more powerful one on occasion - I still feel that you fail to objectively prove your point that Ares is more powerful(or at least more stronger) than Hercules based solely on his lineage. Because the bottom line is that we've basically never seen this point proven in action in Ares' favor, neither in the myths nor in the comics. The opposite assertion based on the existing evidence is more demonstrable.
