Maxwell Lord IV

Maxwell Lord IV is a DC supervillain that first appeared in Justice League #1 (May 1987) and was created by Keith Giffen, J. M. DeMatteis, and Kevin Maguire. He is the son of Maxwell Lord III, a successful businessman and head of the Chimtech Consortium. When Maxwell IV was 16, he came home to find his father dead in an apparent suicide. His father had discovered that his company had produced a carcinogenic product and could not bear to live with the guilt caused by the realization. This sparked Lord’s plans to bring the Justice League, leaderless after the Crisis on Infinite Earths event, under his exclusive control.
