- — Max Lord src
Maxwell "Max" Lord (born Maxwell Lorenzano) was the greedy, eccentric, wealthy entrepreneur and collector who acts as CEO of Black Gold Cooperative. In 1984, he absorbed the power of the Dreamstone, which allowed him to warp reality to his heart's desire. He faced off against Wonder Woman for all the control and power he could possibly gain.
Part of Max Lord's collection of crystalline artifacts was put on display in the Smithsonian Institution in 1984, where they were marveled at by curator Barbara Minerva, a woman Lord would later use for his own gain.
