Unbeknownst to Zeus and the other deities, however, Hades despises the Underworld, as well as his job, finding them both gloomy, depressing, and overbearing.
Because of this, Hades secretly plots to overthrow Zeus and rule Mount Olympus as the King of Deities, himself.
At times, the smallest inconveniences can send him over the edge, causing fiery fits and extreme damage to the area and people around him, depending on the situation.
This quality makes him a feared figure among Greece and beyond, especially in the eyes of his minions, Pain and Panic.
Though powerful in his own right, Hades is considerably weaker than Zeus, and maybe even Poseidon, if not equal to the latter.
