Maxwell Lord is one of the most powerful men in the world using the satellite Brother Eye to track any individual and OMACís to fight as his personal army.
Telepathy: Maxwell Lord is an incredibly powerful telepath.
Mind Control: Maxwell Lord is able to take control of the mindís of individuals and has even managed to control Superman.
Maxwell Lord was abducted by an alien supercomputer buried near the centre of the Earth. This computer somehow managed to convince Max to establish a benevolent worldwide peace organization that the computer hoped to use as part of its own grandiose plot aimed at complete global domination. With the computer's help, Max was able to operate behind the scenes during the formation of a new Justice League. Eventually he was freed from the computerís influence and continued to operate as the Justice League's benefactor and caretaker.
Lord developed telepathic powers himself during the invasion of the Earth that was masterminded by the Dominators, but he remained the Justice Leagueís chief executive rather than become a hero. Maxwell Lord continued to run the team, but over the years his role became increasingly diminished until he was removed when Wonder Woman reformed the League.
Lord however was in truth a criminal mastermind who spent years running the JLI gathering sensitive information about the world's superheroes, which he considered a threat to the planet. All along Max had been playing the role of the incorrigible businessman. In truth, he held a deep contempt for the meta-human community and sought to take them down by keeping them close.
