The son of Zeus and Hera, Ares was worshipped as the god of war in ancient Greece and Rome. Ares dissatisfaction with Zeus' rule of Olympia began after Zeus' decree that worship of the Olympians should be allowed to die out. Ares has three times attempted to conquer Olympus, twice in league with his uncle, Pluto, god of the Olympian underworld, but each time he has been thwarted through the efforts of his half-brother, Hercules, and 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.
