Hermes (Marvel)
Real Name: Mercury
Search for 'Hermes (Marvel)' on Amazon


Powers:
Hermes possesses the typical powers of an Olympian, including superhuman strength, speed, durability, and reflexes, and virtual immortality. Hermes can run and fly at speeds excelling those of any other Olympian god or goddess.

Hermes is an extraordinary hand-to-hand combatant, especially at wrestling. He is also an expert thief, skilled musician, and is adept at any pursuit requiring swiftness and dexterity.

Hermes is usually armed with a short sword, forged by Hephaestus. His half-brother Apollo also created a caduceus for him, a magical device capable of controlling lesser beings and turning objects into gold.

Bio:
Hermes is the herald of Zeus in the Olympian pantheon, and is also the god of commerce, travel, and thieves. Zeus is Hermes's father. Hermes was born on Mount Cyllene, Arcadia, in ancient Greece.

When Hermes first appeared, he was seen departing Olympus on an unknown mission. Alongside his fellow Olympians, he attacked the Eternals at the behest of Zeus and Odin. During this fight, Hermes battled Makkari. Hermes's role as the messenger of the goddesses involved in the creation of the Young Gods was later revealed. He was also present when Zeus granted power to Thor to help resurrect the Asgardian gods. Hermes next appointed Jules Keene the god of luck.

When Hercules was gravely wounded fighting the Masters of Evil, Hermes abducted the injured Hercules from the New York hospital he was admitted to. Zeus blamed the Avengers for Hercules's condition, and ordered the Olympians to attack the Avengers. Hermes battled the Avengers at Zeus's behest, but was then forbidden to set foot on Earth by Zeus. Some time later, Hermes brought Cupid a message from Venus.

Notes:
In one alternate future, depicted in Hercules Vol. 2 #1-4, Hermes and the other Olympians leave Olympus in the 23rd century, leaving Hercules there to father a new race of gods.

First Appearance: Venus (1948) #3
