Depiction of Hades

Hades is one of my favorite gods and here is some of my problem with depiction of Hades over the years (looking at your Hollywood).

Why does Hades dislike heroes, you may ask? Because they are always little fuckin bitches to him, that’s why. Theseus and Pirithous went to go and steal his wife. Main reason for this so they can marry the daughter.  That isn’t a friendly thing to do! Mortals daring to compare themselves with the gods. blasphemy!!!  They go into the fuckin Underworld, they know the fuckin house rules - it’s for dead people ONLY, the upper world is for living people, that’s a no brainer. So Pirithous paid with his life and Theseus, with the help of Herakles went crying away back upstairs. But that’s not the end of Hades’ hero woes. The motherfuckers just don’t give up! Amphiaraus fell through his freak ‘in ceiling (check the story here it's interesting), Orpheus came to get back his wife (but Hades kind of liked him cause he was polite and played nice music) and Aeneas…
