The lower world; the residence of departed spirits; the place where the dead live. Among the ancients the idea of Hades was not synonymous with our Hell, many of the most respectable men of antiquity residing there in a very comfortable kind of way. Indeed, the Elysian Fields themselves were a part of Hades, though they have since been removed to Paris. When the Jacobean version of the New Testament was in process of evolution the pious and learned men engaged in the work insisted by a majority vote on translating the Greek word "Aides" as "Hell"; but a conscientious minority member secretly possessed himself of the record and struck out the objectional word wherever he could find it. At the next meeting, the Bishop of Salisbury, looking over the work, suddenly sprang to his feet and said with considerable excitement: "Gentlemen, somebody has been razing 'Hell' here!" Years afterward the good prelate's death was made sweet by the reflection that he had been the means (under Providence) of making an important, serviceable and immortal addition to the phraseology of the English tongue.

A Greek word equivalent to the Hebrew Sheol—the realm of the dead. Following His burial and before His glorious Resurrection, Christ liberated the righteous dead in Hades, enabling them to enter Paradise because He had destroyed sin and death by His life-giving death (1 Pet. 3:18-20).

The WBTS says this refers to "the common grave of all mankind, where the dead and buried ones are unseen."7 It corresponds to Sheol.

Hades is a fictional place in the Honorverse.
Hades, voiced by James Woods, is the villain in the 1997 movie Hercules, based on the Greek god Hades. Unlike the mythological Hades, who is for the most part a relatively passive deity doing a nasty job, this version is a fast-talking, evil deity, reminiscent of modern Christian views of the Devil. The character's mannerisms were due to James Woods ending up using a "car-dealer"-style voice while the movie was being made.
Hades is a fictional deity in the Marvel Comics Universe based on the Greek God of the same name. Hades first appeared in the pages of Thor #127, written by Stan Lee and drawn by Jack Kirby. He usually prefers to use his Roman name, Pluto these days.
