Mantis himself maybe even more powerful than Darkseid, evil lord of Apokolips. Mantis was the first of Darkseidís agents to arrive on earth. Foolishly he schemed to conquer the planet for himself. Darkseid, meanwhile, permitted Mantisís ambitions only insofar as they aided his own search for the elusive anti-life equation, the means of controlling all sentient life.
Mantis has an insatiable appetite for power and has even risen against Darkseid, only to be suitably humbled for his hubris.
