Glorious Godrey

Glorious Godfrey is a villain in DC Comics.

History

Darkseid, the leader of Apokolips, formulated a plan in order to control Earth. He sent various monsters to Earth in so the heroes would fight them. There were many fights, each one caused more and more collateral damage which strained public relations between the heroes and the public. In order to seal the deal, he sent Glorious Godfrey to Earth, who took the name of G. Gordon Godfrey and became a popular reporter. He is a member of Darkseid's elite and a master manipulator. As a talk show host he publicly slandered heroes and lead various rallies against them. He also used hypnosis on people and have them run the heroes out of Earth. At one of his anti-heroic marches, the heroes are able to free his controlled humans. As a last ditch effort he puts on the helmet of fate to attack them; however, he is defeated and sent to prison. The Female Furies later broke him out. He later makes cameos among others on Apokolips.

One of Darkseid’s greatest Elites has to be Glorious Godfrey. Godfrey has similar powers to Amazing Grace, his sister, only instead of manipulation, he can persuade others. After his first brief appearance fighting the Forever People, Godfrey’s role became greater during the Legends crossover event.

Taking on the persona of G. Gordon Godfrey on Earth, he led a hate campaign against the heroes of Earth, in an effort to discredit the heroes and make humans more willing to surrender to Darkseid’s rule. It nearly succeeds, but Godfrey is defeated after he unsuccessfully uses Doctor Fate’s helmet, which mind wipes him entirely.
