AVENGERS #38

Stan Lee and Jack Kirby first brought Greek Gods to play in the pages of Thor (Journey to Mystery, actually), and there was a great issue of Thor that featured the two Gods going mano a mano.  In fact, it was arguably the greatest issue of Thor.  So great, Walt Simonson drew from it later…

Avengers #38 was the first time Herc teamed up with Earth’s Mightiest Defenders, and, true to form, he traded blows and barbs with just about everyone on the team by the time this arc was over.

He actually joined the team in #45 on the second annual “Avengers Day.”  (The first was in #22.)  Thanks to the always terrific CBSBG for that little tidbit.
