We start a new arc, “Sidekicks Movin’ Up,” by reading “Incredible Hercules: The New Prince of Power” by Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente. After Hercules’ apparent death, the Gods elect Amadeus Cho to be the new Prince of Power and head up the Olympus Group. There’s just one problem: Amadeus Cho doesn’t believe any of it. We take some time to talk about the definition of “sidekick,” Cho’s state of denial, and the ever-important art of pacing.
