This book is mainly about the She-Hulk and Amadeus Cho. She-Hulk is there to be shown that SHIELD and Tony Stark aren't really what they seem to be and that he made a HUGE mistake when him and his buddies in his inner circle passed judgement on the Hulk and shot him into space. Amadeus does make a few VERY valid points, like how the She-Hulk is a lawyer and she of all people should know that the Hulk's constitutional rights were violated, he received no trial by his peers, he never had the right to have an attorney defend him and he never even had the chance to speak on his own behalf. They just passed judgement on him and sent him to a place that was practically a death sentence.
The She-Hulk eventually comes around to Amadeus's side and they actually try to help the Hulk. Amadeus later makes a lot of sense when he's trying to show the Hulk that he isn't a monster and that he actually helps people and he is not a killer. I give this guy a lot of credit for standing up to the strongest creature on the planet to prove a point.

So this comic was pretty good, my only real complaint is that Hercules really isn't in it that much and being that he is the title character you'd think he'd be more in the foreground. So I say to all fellow fans of the Hulk and all things World War Hulk, this is a must have!
Athena calls a council of Pantheons to discuss the threat and propose an assault on the Skrull gods directly - led by her brother Hercules. I have never read Marvel's Hercules so I was completely unfamiliar with the character in that context. And he is VERY different from the myth and film/tv versions. This Hercules is not a leader; he's more like Hulk and just wants to smash (at least in this story). I didn't care for this interpretation of him and the focus on him bogged the story down to the detriment of possibly more interesting characters. The team of five gods, Greek Hercules, Inuit Snowbird, Eternal Ajak, god-eater Demogorge and the Japanese trickster Mikaboshi, along with former SHIELD genius Cho, travel via Dreamlands to confront the Skrull god. I liked how so many cultures were captured in the story - recalling that humanity has many religions and that Marvel incorporates them into its universe. I wish these others had been given more weight in the story because Herc was so one dimensional.
The story has a lot of action, but also a lot of bickering among the competing gods. My total unfamiliarity with the characters, and the negligible impact on the crossover event, made this a weak tie-in for me. Fans of Hercules, or Secret Invasion completists, will want to read this but most won't be missing anything if they skip it.
What would happen if the Hulk on a rampage through out the World, runs into Hercules who wants to actually Help him, not fight him. Though the Lion of Olympus has always been entertained by combat, he truly feels for the Hulk. He has to fight the Hulk which you expect...he just doesn't do it for Sport like Hercules has known to enjoy in the past.
Seems to be out of print, but currently there are a number of reasonably priced new and used copies available here, and quite possibly your local comic shop, as well.
