Holy Hades![1]

Hades was the ancient Olympian god of the underworld. He was the brother of Zeus and Poseidon.

Hades was the ruler of the underworld, a place of firey torment. Robin once mentioned Hades when the weather in Florida was 120 degrees at a high altitude, a reference to the incredibly high temperatures of Tartarus.
