Ozymandias is a unique character from Watchmen. He was born in 1939 as the son of rich immigrant parents and was found to be quite intelligent. As a child, he embarked on a vision quest that followed the route of Alexander the Great.
Ozymandias' ambition matches his intelligence, which is proven by his successful execution of a plan to help Earth towards utopia by ending international hostilities. He is shown to be a ruthless master strategist, swiftly eliminating anybody who dares to get in the way of his plans, while maintaining complete secrecy.
