An ancient holy man from an unnamed world who, after decades spent hiding in the mountains, shuffled down to reclaim the hearts of his people. Using their religious fervor, the Arkymandryte turned a populace of billions against their ruler, Mongul, forcing him to flee the world. In the absence of Mongul, the Arkymandryte took tyrannical control. Although the Arkymandryte was an important part of Mongul's Bronze Age origin story, his sole appearance was in DC Comics Presents #28 (12/1980), though he was referenced in DC Comics Presents #36 (8/1981).
