Synopsis for "Whom the Gods Would Join..."Edit

Refusing Pluto's proposal, Hercules fights back against him, Ares, and Hipployta, but Pluto is able to weaken Herc with his touch and gains the upper hand. Black Widow comes up with a plan to have Angel and Ghost Rider distract Pluto while she and Venus carry Herc back through one of the portals and Iceman seals it with a mountain of ice. Having lost track of their quarry, Pluto's group returns to Olympus to confirm their deal with Zeus. Pluto had forged an alliance with other Hell-Lords to strongarm Zeus into allowing the arranged marriage for Hercules and Venus to maintain peace, while secretly he plans to exploit the Olympian law of non-opposition among spouses to keep Herc and Venus out of the impending battle for supremacy over Olympus.

Back at UCLA, the Champions confirm that the portals and the creatures that came from them have all disappeared, but then they're attacked by the Huntsman, who quickly renders Herc and Venus unconscious before Ghost Rider's hellfire chases him off. Leaving Ghost Rider to protect their fallen comrades, Widow takes Angel and Iceman to scour the area for their opponent. Huntsman summons the Titan Menoetius to handle the mortals, but while Iceman and Angel keep the living energy being off-balance, Widow uses a trick she learned from fighting Electro to short Menoetius out, nearly defeating Huntsman as well with the blowback of energy. As a last resort, Huntsman uses his magic to transport the trio back to Ghost Rider while disguising them as Ares, Hippolyta, and Pluto. Ghost Rider falls for it and attacks them, allowing Huntsman to get away with Hercules and Venus.
