Kernunnos was in fact victimizing Morrigan: he kept her dependent on drinking his blood, which had a powerful narcotic effect, and he held their daughter Brigid hostage.
Hercules, having fled the Near East in despair following the death of Iolaus, eventually arrived in Eire and proved to be a major opponent of Kernunnos's plans, first freeing Morrigan (and facilitating her transformation into a druid in the process) and then Brigid before defeating Kernunnos himself.
Kernunnos's plan was to get rid of the druids, he considered them a threat, to the faith of the Celtic gods.
