Hades' Goals?

Doesn't Hades also want to take over Mount Olympus from his younger brother Zeus because he believes he deserves to rule Olympus? Corrrect me if I'm wrong. Venage237 18:54, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

no - that's only modern versions of Hades, in the original myths Hades was content with being a death-god and wasn't a Satanic figure.. he was just feared.. as were many gods.. he's actually fairly neutral in the myths compared to stories we made up later (where he became a demon, due to Christian concepts entering the mix) Inferno Pendragon (talk) 18:55, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

That is correct Hades was not satanic. If we were to relate him to Christan conterparts he would be less like Satan and more like St. Peter actually considering he judged all souls not just wicked ones. Truth is far from wanting to take over Olympus Hades seemed to want to have little to nothing to do with the rest of his family and is probably one of the least egocentric or jerk of the Greek Gods with exception of Hestia who was just absolutely without sin. Never the less the concept of death and final judgement has changed over the years and the ancient Greeks utterly feared him and he was a heavily antagonistic figure as the source of all death.
