Abilities

  • Genius Level-Intellect: Ares was an extremely intelligent individual, his intellect was superior to all the Olympian Gods, with the exception of Zeus, the latter who was his intellectual superior, as he knew of the darker traits of the human race, something that no other old God apart from Zeus knew, but unlike his father, Ares failed to realise that not all humans are corrupt and believe they do not deserve to live; although it's possible that Ares simply disregarded that fact, possibly due to his jealousy and hatred towards the human race, as he (incorrectly) believed them to be were weak and unworthy. Ares was also one of the most intelligent individuals in the entire universe.
