Comics' Finest Beards: A Salute to Hercules

So one of my very favorite comics reached a climactic conclusion recently as the final issue of Incredible Hercules saw the "Assault On New Olympus" epic ended with the sacrifice of the Prince of Power himself. Now, over on Marvel.com, we paid a little tribute to Herc by commemorating our picks for the Top Ten Avengers Deaths, but here on The CKT, we mourn in our own special day by acknowledging perhaps the most excellent beard in comic book history by giving him his rightful place among an impressive group of peers...

AQUAMAN
AQUARIAN
ARKKIS CHUMMUCK
BRUTACUS
DOCTOR FAUSTUS
FANG
HIGHFATHER
THE IMMORTAL
JESSE THOMPSON
KAINE
THE MAESTRO
MAXIE ZEUS
MIKHAIL RASPUTIN
MORDRU
NICHOLAS SCRATCH
PRINCE RA-MAN
STARMAN
TERRAX
THUNDERSTRIKE

Now those are some beards. Godspeed, Herc!

Hey, if I wanted to read about beards, I'd go hang out with my dad.

You forgot Catwoman.

never knew so many marvel heroes and bad guys really need to find some time to get a razor. though the beard on thunder strike makes him more like thor. the Mastrio looks more creepy given that he is a future insane version of the hulk.

A win for Spurgeon.

Might I also honorably mention Tony Stark's "recovering alocholic" bum-whiskers?

Hercules has been the american icon since ever. He has all the characteristic than a superhero need to be successful.

Little doubt, the dude is completely just.
