Mantis is one of the evil New Gods and a servant to Darkseid. He actually began as the leader of an insectoid colony on New Genesis, but later pledged his loyalty to Darkseid and migrated to Apokolips. In addition to his immense strength he is an "energy vampire" with the ability to siphon energy out of other sources. Mantis was created by Jack Kirby as part of his Fourth World saga, first appearing in Forever People #2. (1971)
