Lord Conquest - Fictional Character Biography

Fictional Character Biography

Lord Conquest, also known as Count Conquest and the Count of Conquest, is a son and lieutenant of Ares, God of War. He resembled a large muscular man, dressed in grey hoplite armour.

Lord Conquest kept a base of operations hidden underneath Mount Olympus on Earth, although he traveled frequently between Earth and Mars, where Mars, the Duke of Deception, and Earl Greed were also based. Lord Conquest sent his astral form to inspire dreams of conquest in military and government leaders in order to prod them into making war.

His contributions to starting World War II included "inspir Mussolini to resurrect the Roman Empire by enslaving helpless Ethiopians, ... urg Hitler to weld his iron yoke on the bowed necks of Europe's imprisoned peoples and ... persuad Hirohito to torture into submission the uncounted millions of Asia" (Wonder Woman (vol. 1) #2).

Lord Conquest was the last of Mars' lieutenants sent to capture Wonder Woman. He refused at first, claiming it was beneath his dignity. He inspired Mussolini to send agents to America to capture Wonder Woman. Italian agents Count Crafti (alias Don Unaldi, Spanish nobleman) and giant slugger Mammotha were dispatched, with Conquest possessing Mammotha. After luring Wonder Woman into entering the boxing ring with Mammotha and then submitting her to enormous electric shock when she was collecting $50,000 for defeating Mammotha, Conquest prepared to deliver her and Steve Trevor, who had been knocked out when trying to see Wonder Woman, to Mars. He chained them both, weakening Wonder Woman as if an Amazon's bracelets were chained together by a man she became as weak as an ordinary woman. She was taken to Mars' dungeon. Only the timely interventions of Etta Candy and the Holliday girls released Wonder Woman and allowed them to escape.

Famous quotes containing the words biography, fictional and/or character:

    The best part of a writer’s biography is not the record of his adventures but the story of his style.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    One of the proud joys of the man of letters—if that man of letters is an artist—is to feel within himself the power to immortalize at will anything he chooses to immortalize. Insignificant though he may be, he is conscious of possessing a creative divinity. God creates lives; the man of imagination creates fictional lives which may make a profound and as it were more living impression on the world’s memory.
    Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
    William James (1842–1910)
