Lets Wiki attack!!
Hades (from Greek ᾍδης, Hadēs, originally Ἅιδης, Haidēs or Άΐδης, Aidēs, meaning "the unseen") refers both to the ancient Greek underworld, the abode of Hades, and to the god of the underworld. Hades in Homer referred just to the god; the genitive ᾍδου, Haidou, was an elision to denote locality: "the house/dominion of Hades". Eventually, the nominative, too, came to designate the abode of the dead.

In Greek mythology, Hades and his brothers Zeus and Poseidon defeated the Titans and claimed rulership over the universe ruling the underworld, air, and sea, respectively; the solid earth, long the province of Gaia, was available to all three concurrently. Because of his association with the underworld, Hades is often interpreted by moderns as the Grim Reaper.

By the Romans Hades was called Pluto, from his Greek epithet Πλούτων Ploutōn (πλοῦτος, wealth), meaning "Rich One". In Roman mythology, Hades/Pluto was called Dis Pater and Orcus. The corresponding Etruscan god was Aita. Symbols associated with him are the Helm of Darkness and the three-headed dog, Cerberus.

The deceased entered the underworld by crossing the Acheron, ferried across by Charon (kair'-on), who charged an obolus, a small coin for passage placed in the mouth of the deceased by pious relatives. Paupers and the friendless gathered for a hundred years on the near shore according to Book VI of Vergil's Aeneid. Greeks offered propitiatory libations to prevent the deceased from returning to the upper world to "haunt" those who had not given them a proper burial. The far side of the river was guarded by Cerberus, the three-headed dog defeated by Heracles (Roman Hercules). Passing beyond Cerberus, the shades of the departed entered the land of the dead to be judged.

Everyone has his own opinion and i respect yours ^^

He is represented as the Greek devil.
Loki is the Norse Devil in myths
Satan is the Christian Devil, but you allready knew that ^^

But how can he be the devil if he doesn't have demonic powers? Hades a god, and if he WERE the devil, then he would be ruling Tartarus-not the realm of the dead. He's not even evil as people falsely depict him as anyway. He actually does less damage than his two brothers do, especially Zeus.

Besides, it has nothing to do how bad or good a person or spiritual creature is
Its the role it has
Hades got his role for ruling the underworld in an dimension
Poseidon the ocean and Earth ''he is also the son of the two titans Gaia and Chronus, who are all elemental ruled, not roled''.
Zeus for Heaven and Is the King of the Greek Gods
He stands for keeping everything alive in tact heartbeats and such
There were first 7 Gods, wich 4 died by the devoiring by Chronus!! >< Makes Hades, Poseidon and Zeus as saved sons of him and overthrown Chronus, like Genzoman explained in one of his brother pictures of the Greek myths!!
Satan was an angel an good one, but later became evil, and is again an Christian type of being. Hades wasnt an angel. He is ''a'' God
Satan found that the angels came first and shouldn bow for human beings, and started an war wich he lost with the other fallen angels.

I hope this Is a bit clearifying for it :) Only wanted to help ;) But In this case Satan is bad/ evil, because he became fallen

1. I know very well about Satan.

2. I study Greek Mythology in my free time, so I already know about the whole Cronus scenario.

Cronus devoured Hades, Hestia, Poseidon, Demeter, and Hera to prevent them from overthrowing him. Rhea was able to save Zeus, so she let him be raised by some maidens on Crete until he was older. When he got older, he married Hera. Hera later poisoned Cronus, so that he can throw up the other siblings. Because they were grateful for this, they joined him in defeating the Titans and Cronus himself. After they completed this, they broke up powers:
-Hades would rule the underworld
-Hestia became the goddess of fire and tended the flame in the center of Olympus
-Poseidon would rule the seas
-Demeter would be the goddess of harvest
-Hera became the goddess of marriage and motherhood, also as the queen of Olympus
-And finally, Zeus would be the kind of the gods, and the god of lightning.

And that was all from memory. It is because I love mythology so much, that I can even name minor figures such as Hades' children and what they possess off the top of my head.
Hell, I love them so much, that I made my own depictions of them so I can draw them on a piece of paper which my two hands.

But thanks anyway.

Im not saying he is evil, im not saying he has demon powers, thats your opinion. 
Hades is still the lord in the underworld in Greek myths.
And Yes Hades is a good guy.
Poseidon is a good guy as well and Zeus too
Its the fact know all 3 well, and you know who youre dealing with
Its this because Im paranormal.
There are many dimensions in the paranormal world wich has many gates in other terms
It also depends if you are a child of a certain one God or something else
But in other knowing, Poseidon just does his deeds, sometimes he has fights more with Zeus yes, then rather fights with Hades.
Most people like Hades, but Im a lover of Poseidon. Its not that I hate the other two. ;)
