God Squad (Marvel)
The God Squad are a team that feature in Marvel Comics.
The God Squad were a team of gods from the planet Earth that gathered together to fight a threat to the world.
They consisted of Hercules, Amadeus Cho, Snowbird, Ajak, Amatsu-Mikaboshi, and Demogorge who gathered to oppose the Skrull gods led by Kly'bn and Sl'gur't. Their number gathered not only had representatives of the Gods of the North, South, East and West, but of the Elder Gods of Earth. They get to the Skrulls in a boat made from the Rainbow Serpent's skin after stealing a chart from Nightmare using Mikaboshi's deception. However a Skrull agent disguised as Cho's coyote pup Kirby destroys it, but has his head bitten off by Atum. Although Ajak and Demogorge are slain by the enemy Skrulls, the team ultimately manages to triumph and destroy the Skrull deities to return to Earth, Kly'bn is impaled on Demogorges spine by Snowbird after Hercules knocks him back, and Sl'gurt is killed by Mikaboshi, when she assumes his form she is torn in two, meaning the rest of the team think Mikaboshi is dead. This happens around the time of Reed Richards' escape at Secret Invasion #5. Mikaboshi stays behind after killing Sl'gur't and takes over the Skrull Pantheon.
After Mikaboshi emerges as the primal Chaos King and takes over the thousands of slave-deities of the Skrulls, he leads them to ravage the many worlds and realities of the deities of other extraterrestrial civilizations, such as the gods of the Shi'ar and the gods of Zenn-La, enslaving them all and leeching their power to further bolster himself. Hercules senses Mikaboshi's coming, and to counter him and his hordes, assembles a new version of the God Squad to help fight him in the devastating Chaos War. While the Chaos King scatters the God Squad across Earth and the divine realms, the six of them manage to reunite and aid the surviving gods in the final battle, ultimately managing to stop the threat of Mikaboshi.
