    A BOLD NEW ERA FOR THE LION OF OLYMPUS! The Chaos War left Hercules without powers -- and without a sidekick. But when mythic evil stalks the streets, and a latter day band of Hercules-worshippers cries out for their savior, what is the son of Zeus to do?

Then, Herc shows the world the true measure of a superhero when FEAR ITSELF comes to town.
