Nikos Aegeus was a terrorist and an assassin employed by Bellerophon to destroy Paradise Island. He was given the mythical horse Pegasus and several of Zeus' thunderbolts in his mission to get rid of the Amazons. Although he proved a powerful enemy, he was eventually defeated by Wonder Woman, and retreated to Mount Olympus, where Mars bestowed upon him new weapons. He used these weapons, including Vulcan's Six Daggers, to shatter one of Wonder Woman's Bracelets of Submission. However, he was once again defeated, and his terrorist organization dissipated.
Aegeus, similar to his Pre-Crisis version, was portrayed as a terrorist. He used Zeus' bolts to destroy an airplane, then demanded one hundred million dollars from the government. Wonder Woman and Superman defeated Aegeus and he was taken into custody.

- The Pre-Crisis version of Aegeus exists Post-Crisis, as Wonder Woman commented that she had battled Aegeus once before, "a while back." This means his initial battles with Wonder Woman exist in the current continuity.
