Actually Hades wasn't incredibly evil and likely didn't look much, if any, different than Zeus/Poseidon. He was just very unfortunate to have been stuck ruling the underworld. Hades was not only the god of the underworld, however, but also the god of wealth and riches. The thing he did that was closest to being truly evil was the kidnapping of Persephone and forcing her to eat pomegranate seeds so that she could only leave 6 months out of the year. But he genuinely loved her so it wasn't just a sort of "HADES WANT" thing. Demeter, Persephone's mother and goddess of the harvest, while searching for her daughter left the seasons unchecked. This caused everything to decay and die. This was the beginning of Autumn and Winter. Zeus sent Hermes to the underworld to make a deal with Hades for the return of Persephone, but he only allowed that she return for half the year. Therefore the six months that she's out of the underworld make up Spring and Summer, and the six that she is in the underworld make up Fall and Winter.

Yeah :D Greek mythology has always interested me a lot. The history around Hades especially intrigues me.
