DARK AVENGERS: ARES #1
Ares â€“ the God of War! His relentless brutality and his bloodthirsty drive to attain victory at any cost earned him only scorn from his fellow gods in the Greek pantheon, and exile from Olympus. After thousands of years living as a man and fighting in manâ€™s bloody, petty conflicts, Ares joined the ranks of Earthâ€™s mightiest heroes â€“ the Avengers. Now Norman Osborn â€“ the new head of the corrupted Dark Avengers and director of the paramilitary intelligence agency H.A.M.M.E.R. â€“ wants the finest fighting force the God of War can provide. He charges Ares with hand-picking an elite squad of soldiers and beating them into the hardest, sharpest warriors ever to wield an M-60 in each hand. And thatâ€™s exactly what Ares will need, when the goddess Hera provides him with a fighting chance to regain his standing in the pantheonâ€™s eyes. And Ares is taking his men with him into the battle of their livesâ€¦
