> Due to the lack of a DC Ares wiki-page on the Vine, I decided to make this respect thread.

Skills - Ares gains the ability to access every martial art form and every military tactic in all of history.

Genesis - Ares is able to break through the Source's barrier, and then proceeds to kill Highfather Izaya of the New Gods fairly easily

Power Output - Ares is able to one-shot Herakles (Hercules), someone who was able to tangle with a Doomsday clone prior to that. Then Ares aids Darkseid in defeating Zeus (It is not shown who beats him, but Ares is possibly part of the cause of it).

Invulnerability to Mortal Harm - The first scan shows Ares cannot be harmed by normal weapons or means and can only be hurt by magic. In the second scan, it shows that Ares is unaffected by Medusa's stare (which turns people to stone) while in previous pages Circe and Wonder Woman had to shield their eyes or look away from her.

Prep - Mars, Ares's Roman counterpart with nearly the same power level, is able the re-size himself to become the size of a Promethean giant, who are so big that they are able to hold planets in the palms of their hands.

With preparation, Mars is then able to generate and change his cosmic shift pattern so that he can tap into the Source's frequency, and then uses the Source's powers to pull Ares out of the Source Wall. He then uses those same powers to fuse with Ares to form the single, fused war god, Ares. This shows that Ares's war tactics and planning are enough to even outsmart Metron, the Inventor New God with genius level intellect.

Matter Manipulation - Ares manipulates the matter of a cavern, and then warps/teleports Cassie back to the Teen Titans.

Empowerment - Ares has the ability to give Cassie powers when Zeus takes them away from her, leaving her even stronger than before.

War of the Gods - Even while weakened, Ares is able to keep up with his Roman counterpart, Mars, even though that Mars has a very similar, if not the same, power set as him.

Ares's Declaration - Ares becomes more and more powerful with every blow and every conflict started.

Avatar Creation - Ares shows that gods have the ability to create life, including human Avatars for them to manipulate and control.

No Caption Provided

War Manipulation - Ares manipulates and controls these soldiers to attack Wonder Woman while Ares gets the object of importance in the two's first comic encounter.

No Caption Provided

The God-Fearing Gods - Even the Gods of Olympus themselves have become afraid of Ares, due to Ares becoming even stronger than them (maybe even combined), including the three head Gods of Olympus, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades.

No Caption Provided

Soul Manipulation - Removing the souls of his children with little effort and then proceeding to send their souls to Hades.

Pandora's Box - Ares takes and absorbs the demons of Pandora's box, making him much more powerful than before. Also, in this scan, he also shows us that he has a pretty fast travel speed as well

No Caption Provided

Godly Harm - Wounds created by gods such as Ares do not heal like they should, which is why a wound inflicted by Ares could not even be healed by the healing ray, which usually heals wounds similar to it quite easily.

No Caption Provided

Just for Spotlight - Ares shows that he has a sense of humor... and that in itself is utterly terrifying(!)

No Caption Provided

Couldn't find any of his reality-warping or time-traveling feats, unfortunately.

Gonna add more scans when I have time.

@maccyd: He hasn't shown much, so far we've only seen him in his human old man disguise. I really feel sort indifferent about it, since New 52 has only been out for 2 years (even less actually), and knowing how long it took for Ares to show his true form in the Pre-52, I don't mind the time for development.

@retconcrisis: That isn't his default look? Thank god, I thought his look seemed disappointing compared to the Pre-52 (Shadow-helmeted look). I've only realised how epic he is recently, from Injustice. I might read more of his pre-52 appearances, any recommendations?

@maccyd: Comicvine ate up my reply ._.

I'll get back to you later. But here's a list of his appearances. Click on the thumbnails to make sure, because some of the issues only include him as a flashback or cameo.

@retconcrisis: I am going to point out that Diana's blindness was caused by Meduas' snake poison, though you are correct that god-inflicted wounds won't heal save by normal means (Io pulled through getting clobbered by him after all).

@maccyd: He hasn't shown much, so far we've only seen him in his human old man disguise. I really feel sort indifferent about it, since New 52 has only been out for 2 years (even less actually), and knowing how long it took for Ares to show his true form in the Pre-52, I don't mind the time for development.

By the looks of things, the Lord Sauron looks dissapeared with Flashpoint, he has his old-man Azzarello looks and this:

For the time being there seems no real intentions of changing this since he slipped off the immortal coil fighting the First Born (where he did have his moment of glory).

I mostly just saw him as an ****hole not so much a villain/bad guy lol. I mean yeah sure, he squaabled with Diana a few times but for the most part he just did his own thing to get power, he did help Diana out a few times and Cassie by empowering her n such.

Ok so I got some stuff, this doesn't show Ares specifically. But moreso of just how powerful he became once he absorbed the Godwave.

@wolfrazer:Well, I'm not saying or implying the feat isn't good.

But some context always must be given for those who didn't read the comic.
