Little was detailed about Hercules’ life before the zombie plague arrived on Earth-2149, however it can be presumed that it followed much the same path as Hercules of Earth-616.
Presumably, he received a call from Nick Fury to join the resistance aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and left to join them.
With the extremely varied bunch all assembled on the Helicarrier, Nick explained how serious he believed the situation to be; that it was the end of the world. He also explained that whatever the histories of those assembled, they were all on the same side.
It can also be assumed that he was part of the team sent back down to the surface to battle the zombies, but responding to an “Avengers Assemble” call, he arrived at Avengers Mansion only to find the Avengers themselves zombified, at which point he himself was turned.
Unable to break through the castles magical defences, Hercules was presumably surrounded by the re-animated corpses of the Deadite Legion. Though apparently this is more of an inconvenience than anything else, as he was later seen in New York seemingly none the worse for wear (other than a touch of zombification, obviously).
Though, his ultimate fate is unknown, it can be presumed he was fried when the Power Cosmic Zombies tested out their new powers.

- The zombified Hercules of Earth-2149 first appeared in "Ultimate Fantastic Four: Crossover" by Mark Millar, and Greg Land.
- Reality-2149 was created by Mark Millar, and Greg Land in "Ultimate Fantastic Four: Crossover".

- The continuity is a little confusing on this one as, though in MZ v AOD #3, Hercules and She-Hulk are shown in flashback to be infected at the same time. This may be simply an artistic device, as in MZ: Dead Days, (which from what I can work out, takes place between MZ v AOD #2 & #3), She-Hulk is killed really early on, although unzombified Hercules is shown later on board the Helicarrier.
