For as long as man has walked the Earth, he has warred with his fellow man. And as long as there is war, there will be Ares.
One of the immortal Olympian gods from Greek mythology, Ares, the God of War, is the son of Zeus and Hera and a longtime adversary of the Amazonian warrior Wonder Woman. Along with the immense strength, endurance and invulnerability that come with godhood, Ares is a master of conflict and strategy and is able to expertly wield any known weapon. However, his real power lays in his ability to create conflict and destruction wherever he goes. His mere presence alone is enough to cause riots and acts of violence—which is exactly what he wants.
A villain by his very nature, Ares is a perpetual war machine—a constant, unswayable force that will always seek to incite discord and devastation. For as much as the world evolves and technology advances, war is constant.
