The chain of command. Rules of engagement. This Geneva Convention thing. Medical evac. Supply lines. The white flag. The Red Cross. Worrying about evacuees and refugees. Taking prisoners. Losing the battle but winning the war. Cursed diplomats. The proper standard of grooming. Sensible things like having enough bullets before you go into battle. That's the dung my sister cares about. I'm the other God of War.
Ares is the Greek God of War and a villainous enemy of the Marvel superhero Thor, as well as an occasional hero.
Ares is the son of both of Zeus and Hera. Ares was worshiped as the God of war in ancient Greece and Rome. Ares was unsatisfied with Zeus' rule of Olympia. He tries to take over Mount Olympus on more than one occasion. Ares has three times attempted to conquer Olympus, twice in league with his uncle, Pluto, god of the Olympian underworld, but every time time he's thwarted through the efforts of his half-brother, Hercules, and any of Hercules' allies.
Ares, who hated Hercules ever since he had killed Ares' monstrous Stymphalian birds in the days of ancient Greece, had tried to gain revenge against Hercules.
Later, he ended up joining the Avengers (in the comic series The Mighty Avengers), which lead to his tenure in Norman Osborn's Avengers (in the comic series The Dark Avengers). Eventually, he was brutally murdered in the siege on Asgard after fellow team-mate Sentry went berserk and tore him in half.
Powers and Abilities
As a god, Ares possesses vast strength and endurance. His physical capabilities are superior to those of the majority of Olympian gods. He has virtually inexhaustible stamina, and does not tire appreciably after any exertion. He is stronger than the average Olympian, strength level estimated to being able to lift around 70 tons. Zeus and Hercules are the only Olympians stronger than Ares.
Like all Olympians, Ares is immortal, possessing a life essence that cannot be ended by any conventional means. He can be wounded in battle, but his godly life force gives him incredible recuperative abilities. He can fully recover from penetration wounds (such as by knife, sword, or bullet) in anywhere from minutes to hours, depending on their severity. Only an injury of such magnitude that it incinerates him or disperses a major portion of his bodily molecules could cause him physical death. Even then, his life essence may still be unharmed, and Zeus may be able to resurrect him.
Superhuman strength, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes. Ares also possesses a regenerative healing factor which is capable of repairing damaged or destroyed tissue at superhuman levels of speed. He has also been shown to be injured by weapons of magical nature such as Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor. He also has some low-level magic abilities such as summoning weapons or sensing if magic is being used.
