"You stand tall. Stand proud. You're a Lockwood. You're human. This planet belongs to you. Stand up and fight for what's yours."
—Peter Lockwood's last words to his son, Ben[src]

Peter "Pete" Lockwood (died June 18, 2018) was the father of Ben Lockwood and the paternal grandfather of George Lockwood. Peter's death during Reign's terraformation of Earth and his anti-alien views indirectly led to his son becoming Agent Liberty.

Biography

Peter owned Lockwood Family Steel, which was used to process steel for businesses such as L-Corp. However, after people began using a new metal called Nth metal he had to eventually shut down his factory. After that he and his family suffered from money problems.

During the Daxamite invasion he and his family hid in their house until they were forced to leave, he was against it though as he believed they should instead stand up and fight for what is theirs, he witnessed the fight between the Green Martian and the Daxamite which destroyed their home. Once the whole world was being rebuilt by the Worldkillers he went to his steel factory where he was tapped in the debris. His son tried to save him but he didn't want to be saved as the steel factory was all he had and he wanted to die there. He made his son promise to stand up for himself and protect what is his.

Legacy

Peter's death during the Worldkillers' attempt to terraform Earth is one of the reasons why his son, Ben Lockwood hates aliens and what turned into the man he is today; however, even before his death at the hands of the Worldkillers, albeit indirectly; Peter's negative attitudes and actions is what caused his son, Ben to develop an anti-view and hatred towards all aliens in general; despite the fact that Ben had been (initially) more fair-minded.

Because Peter's hatred poisoned his son, Ben's mind, it would lead to his daughter-in-law, Lydia's death as well as his grandson, George Lockwood being disgusted and disillusioned by his father's actions, and his obsession with destroying all alien life on Earth; indirectly making Peter not only responsible for Lydia's death and for ruining Ben's life respectively, but also for destroying his family's lives as well.

Personality

Peter had always hated aliens for no clear reason, simply due to their destructive capabilities, completely disregarding the fact that most aliens, such as Superman and Supergirl respectively are good, not evil; proving that he was both short-sighted and narrow-minded.

When Peter's employees were arrested by the FBI for attacking and assaulting two innocent aliens simply due to their extraterrestrial heritage, he tried to defend their actions but was put in his place by J'onn J'onzz, who states that his workers are actually guilty of breaking the law by attacking innocent aliens and that the FBI serve the American people; as the alien amnesty act gives all aliens in general the same equal rights as humans.

Peter was a traditionalist who refuses to consider adapting to a changing world, as a result, he always tried to blame aliens for ruining his life; however, in truth, he was actually responsible for ruining his own life.

Peter values his family most of all, his son, Ben Lockwood, was one of the few people who could talk sense into him.
