Ares is the God of War and son of Zeus, as well as the paternal half-brother of Wonder Woman. At some point Ares killed his father after Zeus and the Amazons fought against him. He would later reappear during World War I after showing interest in a new deadly gas being developed. Ares desired the gas to use against humanity, a race which he had developed jealousy for.[2]


Ares, as the God of War, is extremely violent and bloodthirsty, as well as quite selfish, sinister, and malevolent, willing to wipe out humanity with a deadly gas (during World War I), after becoming jealous of their race, and even going so far as patricide, assassinating his own father, Zeus.[2]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

  • Godly Physiology: As an Olympian god, Ares is incredibly powerful, at least rivaling the tremendous might of Wonder Woman.
    • War Manipulation: Ares, as the God of War, has the formidable power to manipulate war, strife, combat, and other forms of conflict, to a great extent. Ares can therefore induce conflicts by influencing people or events - raising personal and fanatical armies, shown when he corrupted humanity with war shortly after the race's creation, and latter instigating the extremely devastating World War I, with conflict and bloodshed serving to make Ares more powerful. This power also allows Ares to naturally be incredibly skilled in all forms of fighting, and weaponry[3].
    • Longevity: Ares, due to him being an Olympian god, has lived for millennia without visibly aging, having been born before Zeus created humanity and the Amazons.

  • Master Combatant: Ares, as the God of War, is a tremendously skilled, fierce, and formidable armed and hand-to-hand combatant, a master of numerous martial arts, as well as an expert in wielding weapons, with centuries of combat experience. Indeed, Ares' tremendous combat skills have allowed him to at least evenly fight against Wonder Woman.
  • Warfare Expertise: Ares, as the God of War, is an expert in all areas of warfare.

  • Godkiller: Ares can only be slain with this magical Amazon weapon[4].
  • Other Gods: Ares, when fighting other Olympian gods, such as his father Zeus, is more vulnerable, as they are powerful enough to injure and even kill Ares, much like how Ares himself was able to kill Zeus[5].
