Hades (Marvel)

In the Marvel Universe, there are any number of afterlives, but they are all, ultimately, the same afterlife. What you find there depends to some extent on what you expect to find there, and to some extent on who there holds power.

When Hercules visits this afterlife, he sees it as Hades, albeit an unusually modern Hades full of dead people he knows, all gambling in a casino where the ultimate prize is resurrection. Unusually, it also includes dead gods as well as dead mortals.

So long as you don’t piss off Hades, this isn’t a bad afterlife to wind up in – it’s relatively earth-like and un-sadistic, and there’s a very good chance of escaping it (if the rate of resurrections in Marvel Comics is anything to go by).
