History[]

Peter St John is a character from the 2000 AD strip Zenith. As Mandala, he was a superhero and a member of the group Cloud 9 during the 1960s, the ultimate poster boy for hippy counterculture. However, following the dissolution of Cloud 9, St John 'sold out' his hippy principles and entered politics, eventually becoming a Conservative Party MP during Mrs Thatcher's time in office. (He was believed to have lost his powers at this time, like the rest of the survivors of Cloud 9, but this proved not to be the case.)

Reluctantly forced back into service to battle the demonic Lloigor alongside Zenith, Ruby Fox and Red Dragon, he manipulated the situation to his own advantage, eventually becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain (though he was, admittedly, instrumental in finally defeating the Lloigor). Years later, after the end of his own final term in office, St John was shown to be still manipulating the country from behind the scenes using a mentally controlled Tony Blair. In an interview with Zenith in 2000 AD prog 2050, published in 2017, St John was said to have died, leaving behind him a volume of posthumously published memoirs.
