During the time of the Mars Attacks Event, Liberty, daughter of Superpatriot was kidnapped by Martians. She was experimented with and impregnated by the Martians. When she returned she refused to get an abortion since she believed her son should be given a chance of life thus is born Damien Armstrong who is the original Darklord.
Damien Darklord created by Erik Larsen.
The time-traveling Darklord begun his life as the super-intelligent powered child dubbed Damien Darklord, sharing the same origins as his younger version. However, this version grew up to adulthood before visiting the past to prepare for his eventual birth. He formed the Covenant of the Sword organization whilst also established himself as a supervillain of the 1980s, coming into conflict with Super-Tough and Young-Tough. It was during their final encounter that Damien Darklord attempted to steal the original Nega-Bomb. The heroes thwarted this theft, only for another version, now just Darklord, to arrive and detonate the weapon. This time-travel caused a divergent timeline to exist. One featured the deaths of Darklord and Super-Tough, and the scarring of Young-Tough. The other had the death of Young-Tough and the survival of the other two combatants.
Damien is a Martian-human hybrid imbued with incredible intelligence. As soon as he was born, Damien was taken in by the Covenant of the Sword and was installed as their leader. He begun to work with versions of himself in different realities in a process dubbed Celestial Engineering. They planned for the safety of all Earths and exchanged information on how best to accomplish this extraordinary feet.
