Ares is the Olympian god of war, father of Queen Hippolyta and grandfather of Wonder Woman, and an ancient enemy of the Amazons of Amazonia. In modern times, he acts as Maxwell "Max" Lord, an expert entrepreneur who provides his services to the US Army in areas such as robotics, tactical analysis and psychology.

Three thousand years ago he visited Hippolyta on the Amazon Island, but the Amazons managed to get rid of him. Now he has returned for vengeance, stoking global war between the sexes from the United States, having influence over the American army and government.[1]

As Max Lord, he was the main alerter against alleged plans of an Amazon invasion and domination of the men of the world by women. He is also the mind behind the Project A.R.E.S..[2]
