Maxwell Lord is a businessman with a knack for manipulation. Driven by a need to control the Earth's mightiest defenders and aided by a sentient computer, Lord re-organized the JUSTICE LEAGUE and manipulated it into alliance with the UNITED NATIONS. Lord has a limited ability to influence the minds of others (a power gained courtesy of the ALIEN ALLIANCE), and has managed to cheat death on several occasions. Shortly after John Charles Collins (as Judgment) broke up his first funeral, Lord reappeared as LORD HAVOK III. Years later, Lord became the Black King of CHECKMATE and took the opportunity to wage war on the super-powered community. Despite yet another death at the hands of WONDER WOMAN, Lord was restored to life as a member of the BLACK LANTERN CORPS and continues to threaten those superhumans with powers far beyond those of mortal men.
Maxwell Lord broke into Booster Gold's Metropolis BOOSTER GOLD INTERNATIONAL in order to offer Booster membership in the Justice League. For years, the two would be cronies, working together in the Justice League and SUPER BUDDIES for the good of society while profiting on their adventures. Booster briefly met Maxwell Lord's secretary, Ms. Wootenhoffer, who was later revealed as an agent of the MANHUNTERS. Following the death of the BLUE BEETLE II, Booster and Lord became fierce enemies.
In one of his adventures through time, Booster saves the life of Lord's ancestor, Cyril Lord, from ENEMY ACE in World War I. Booster would also save Lord's mother Naomi Lord in World War II.

Lex Luthor hates all competition, and while Booster Gold was the owner of the thriving BOOSTER GOLD INTERNATIONAL business, LexCorp was amongst its chief rivals. Luthor eventually hired an employee of BGI to attack Booster Gold as the villain Attack Dog One in order to damage both BGI's and Booster's public image, a plan foiled by Booster Gold with the aid of SUPERMAN. No doubt enjoying having a former rival on his leash, Luthor would later sponsor Booster Gold's CONGLOMERATE.
