The Tale of Hercules

Hercules always mispronounces Charon's name which annoys him.


Charon is known for being strict about the rules of who he can take to the Underworld. He is highly annoyed at Hercules for his ego, saying that it would sink his raft. He attacked Hercules and Hulk when Hercules pushed him into the River Styx, showing great anger. He quickly relented when he saw Hulk's selflessness when he realized the reason Hulk wanted to go to the Underworld was to protect people from Pluto and not for glory, calling him noble as a result. His admiration of Hulk and his bravery against Pluto extended enough that he pull Hulk out of the River Styx, despite having to pull out Hercules as well, which he hated.

Charon is an immortal who has lived for thousands of years along with along with the Greek Gods and other mythical beings. Despite his appearance of being defenseless and old, he actually has inhuman strength and resilience. He is strong enough to be unharmed by getting pushed into the River Styx by Hercules, as well as strong enough to leap out of the water, send Hercules flying several feet into a wall, and hit Hulk hard enough to hurt him, the blow being described like a "freight train".
