Ares is the god of war in Greek mythology, son of Zeus and a villainous cosmic entity who acts as antagonist to Wonder Woman. Dedicated to forwarding the cause of war, he acts as a corrupting influence to manipulate others and spread violence. He has offspring known as the Children of Ares, demi-gods who act as super-villains. His Roman counterpart is the god Mars. Ares was created by William Moulton Marston, first appearing in Wonder Woman #1.

Injustice: Gods Among Us




Page Updated:  May 28th, 2019

I've never been so bored with a comic villain in my entire life... sorry. Ares looks like a customized RPG character (ex: Skyrim) with too much heavy armor equipped. He looks sloooow... and seems as over-hyped as most DCU movies. 

Storyline-wise, okay, he's a fairly decent DC villain... yet forgettable. His fighting game debut in Injustice: Gods Among Us made less of a statement than I thought it would (and was also over-hyped). In fairness, Ares has a few cool elements about his Injustice fighting style... his moveset is designed fairly well. It's the execution and his boring-ass armor that makes me yawn. Sorry, but I drew better armor designs when I was 10 years old in '93 (and yeah, I'm actually pretty confident about that). :) To say something nice about Ares (like he cares), I do like his invisibility move... and his sword projectile effects. Other than that, Ares has super stiff actual-fighting animations and some laughably ugly movements and attacks. Mehhh. Go burn yourself a better helmet and take a martial arts class or two, ya goof.
