|“||Welcome to the future. Life is good, but it can be better. And why shouldn't it be? All you need is to want it. Think about finally having everything you always wanted.||”|
— Max Lord[src]
Maxwell "Max" Lord, born Maxwell Lorenzano, is an unsuccessful oil tycoon and the founder/owner of Black Gold Cooperative. After acquiring the Dreamstone, Lord wished for his wealth and later became the embodiment of the artifact itself, bestowing himself the ability to grant other people's wishes. However, it backfired and the Dreamstone slowly drained his life force while he left chaos behind his actions. Lord was soon defeated by Wonder Woman and returned to his home to his family.
