- I am Hades. Most inevitable of the gods. Only those who have wasted life need fear me -- for the underworld holds no terror for the innocent, wise, and brave.

Hades is the God of the Underworld that bears his name. He has few concerns for the mortal world, focusing instead on shepherding the dead. When Athena established her domain over Olympus after usurping her father Zeus, Hades led the rebellion consisting of himself, Zeus, Poseidon, and Ares against Athena when she sent Wonder Woman to his realm to retrieve Hermes. At the climax of the fight against Wonder Woman, Ares prevented Hades from killing her and murdered him to take his power and position as King of the Underworld.
