Ares (magazine)

Ares was a science fiction wargame magazine published by Simulations Publications, Inc. (SPI), and then TSR, Inc., between 1980 and 1984. In addition to the articles, each issue contained a wargame, complete with a foldout stiff paper map, a set of cardboard counters, and the rules.

There were a total of seventeen issues printed, plus two special issues. The SPI company published the first eleven bimonthly issues (and had prepared a twelfth) before financial difficulties led to the company being bought out by TSR in 1982. A further six issues, published quarterly, were put out by TSR and then publication of the magazine was ceased. However, the Ares legacy lived on for another couple of years; a large new section called the "Ares Section" was added to Dragon magazine starting with issue #84 (April 1984) and was treated as almost a magazine within a magazine. This special section provided support for science fantasy and superhero roleplaying games such as Gamma World, Marvel Super Heroes and Star Frontiers. The "Ares Section" ran through Dragon issue #111 (July 1986) after which it too was discontinued.

Ares (video game)

Ares is a space strategy video game created by Nathan Lamont of Bigger Planet Software, and first released by Changeling Software in 1996. In 1999 the game was re-released as shareware by Ambrosia Software and released as open source software and freeware in 2008.

Ares (Marvel Comics)

Ares is a fictional character, a deity appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character is based on the Greek god of the same name. He first appeared in Thor (vol. 1) #129 (June 1966) and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Ares has commonly appeared as an enemy of Thor and Hercules and starred in his own self-titled series in 2006. In 2012, Ares was ranked 39th in IGN's list of "The Top 50 Avengers".

Ares, the Greek God of War, was initially depicted as a villain in the Marvel Universe, opposing Thor, Hercules and the The Avengers. Early on his influence on Earth was less direct as he created an organization known as the "Warhawks" and used them to create war on Earth.

In 2006 the character was recast to not be a villain but instead more of an antihero who simply lived for battle, any battle. He was added to the Avengers roster as one of their "heavy hitters" and showed himself to have his own "Warriors Honor" codex and not the one-dimensional villain he had been portrayed as in the past. He would later join Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers, believing that he could put his powers to good use. During the Siege storyline Ares is killed by Sentry as he is literally torn apart.

Ares (DC Comics)

Ares (also sometimes referred to as Mars or War) is a fictional character appearing in DC Comics publications and related media. Based upon the Greek mythological figure of the same name, he is the Greek god of war and a major adversary of the super-hero Wonder Woman. Ares first appeared in Wonder Woman #1, volume 1, published in the summer of 1942, written by Wonder Woman creator William Moulton Marston. In the very next issue, he reappeared under his Roman name, Mars. He would retain this name until February 1987, when comics writer/artist George Pérez restored the Greek name Ares as part of his reboot of the Wonder Woman mythos. As the narrative continuity of Wonder Woman comics have been adjusted by different writers throughout the years, various versions of Mars/Ares, with various personalities and physical appearances, have been presented, though most have been depicted wearing Greek hoplite or Roman gladiator armor. One of the character's longest-running looks, designed by George Pérez (at right), is that of a red-eyed Greek warrior clad in black and indigo battle armor, face hidden by an Attic helmet. When DC's continuity was again rebooted in 2011 (an event known as the New 52), a new version of the character, devised by writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chiang, was created. Originally referred to as War, he was introduced as a mentor to the young Wonder Woman. In a marked departure from previous incarnations, this New 52 version originally had the appearance of an older man wearing a disheveled 20th Century man's tropical suit, with a long white beard and pitch black eyes, his bare feet smeared with blood. In later appearances, this version would transform into a younger, more physically formidable warrior-figure. Referred to once again primarily as Ares, he is depicted as a hulking Greek soldier wielding a battle-axe, with a long red beard, fur cape and a Phrygian helmet crowned with ram's horns.

Ares (missile)

The Ares was a proposed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) derived from the Titan II missile. It was a single-stage rocket with a high-performance engine to increase the rocket's specific impulse. Both Aerojet and Rocketdyne carried out engine design studies for the project, but Ares was ultimately cancelled in favour of solid-fuel ICBMs, which were safer to store and could be launched with much less notice.

Ares would also have been capable of placing a 4,000 kg payload into low Earth orbit as a single-stage to orbit launch vehicle.

Ares (wrestler)

Marco Jaggi (born January 12, 1980) is a Swiss professional wrestler and wrestling trainer, known by his ring name Ares (or Are$), who primarily competes in European and American independent promotions. For much of his career, Jaggi teamed with Claudio Castagnoli and Marc Roudin as part of Swiss Money Holding. One of the top tag teams in Europe during the 2000s, the trio won titles in Germany, France, the United Kingdom and their native Switzerland. Under the Freebird Rule, Jaggi held the IPW:UK Tag Team Championship with Castagnoli and Roudin for a record 12 months.

They eventually toured the United States in 2003, appearing for IWA Mid-South and Chikara, and took part in the 2003 Tag World Grand Prix. After returning to Europe, Castagnoli decided to return to the United States to regularly compete for Chikara. Jaggi then brought in Marc Roudin to fill in for Castagnoli and spent several years teaming together. He would also have an accomplished career as a singles competitor, wrestling in countries as far away Algeria, South Africa and Japan, and was the head trainer for IWA-Switzerland.

After his marriage to Allison Danger in 2008, Jaggi followed Castagnoli to the United States. He made a surprise appearance at Chikara's “Three-Fisted Tales” show where he and Castagnoli reunited to form the "heel" stable BDK in 2009, and went on to win the 2010 King of Trios with fellow stablemate Tursas.

Usage examples of "ares".

There were scraps of notes, from the crew to themselves, and emergency checklists, and hundreds of tiny round-cornered squares of blue Velcro stuck to the walls.

The clouds thickened toward the equator, and when she looked ahead, tangential to the Earth's surface, she could see them climbing up into the atmosphere, as if Ares was heading for a wall of vapor.

The brief burns were placing Ares on segments of successively wider orbits.

The supplementary tanks carried more than two million pounds of liquid oxygen and hydrogen, propellant Ares would need to break clear of Earth orbit.

The rest of the Ares stack—the Mission Module, MEM, and Apollo—would be docked onto the front of the MS-IVB to complete the assembly of the first Mars ship, a needle well over three hundred feet long.

Later in the mission—when Ares had burned off its fuel, reducing its mass—the acceleration of the MS-II would be a lot tougher.

It was all to drum up interest and enthusiasm for Ares, to allow the great American public to see what they were paying for.

She could hear the hum and whir of the Mission Module's equipment, and the occasional automatic burn of the attitude clusters as they kept Ares pointing sunward.

The lox tank was used to hold stores, and with its thicker walls it would serve as the crew's storm shelter—shielding them from solar flares, if any blew up in the course of the mission.

And the top level, closest to the prow of the Ares cluster, was the Science Platform.

There was a scheme to observe major solar events like spots and flAres from the two widely separate vantage points of Ares and Earth, and so there was a whole bunch of instruments which would be directed at the sun: a coronagraph, a spectroheliograph, a spectrographic telescope.

Since in flight the Ares cluster would keep itself aligned to point at the sun, to save boiloff, all the equipment was mounted in a pallet, which would be unfolded and held out from the body of the Mission Module, like a rearview mirror.

The models Ares was carrying were out-of-date: the design of the platform, already nearly a decade old, had become frozen around those customized, low-weight, low-power machines years before.

Inside the sphere of influence, Ares had essentially been in an orbit dominated by Earth.

The trajectory planners back in Houston had sent corrective burn parameters chattering up the line to Ares, and the MS-II stage's maneuvering propulsion system—two modified Lunar Module engines—had applied a hefty velocity change of twenty-five feet per second.
