Marital fidelity was not required of men in ancient Greece (only among the philosophers did the concept of male marital fidelity circulate), so what Zeus is doing is not exactly seen as morally wrong. However, if he had been an ordinary mortal he might have been ridiculed for his lack of moderation and self-control in sexual matters. Men were expected to be sexually active, though, so a man like my version of Hades, who very rarely feels sexual attraction, would most likely have been seen as weird.

Embarrassing question for Hades to ask, given what he said just BEFORE. 😄

Nice work in that last panel - turning the text into a sbtle graphic.
