Diana of Themyscira, better known as Wonder Woman (a.k.a Diana Prince) is a fictional character and superheroine from DC Comics who has her own franchise as well as being a founding member of the Justice League. She is an ancient Amazon who fights crime with aid from her bullet-proof wristbands, magical-lasso and superhuman-strength, and the ability to fly.
She was created by William Moulton Marston and H.G. Peter, and first appeared in All Star Comics # 8 in October of 1941.
Molded from clay by her mother, Queen Hippolyta, Princess Diana was bestowed with powers and abilities from the Greek gods and goddesses, and trained by her fellow Amazons on the paradise island, Themyscira, to use her powers carefully - even though Princess Diana bested them in battle. When United States Army Air Corps Colonel Steve Trevor crash landed on Paradise Island, Hippolyta was instructed by Athena and Aphrodite to hold a contest to see which Amazon would accompany Steve back to "Man's World" (as the Amazons called the outside world) to fight evil, because entities (such as the Nazis during World War II and, later on, Communist spies, criminals, mad scientists and other antagonists) were spreading deceit, enmity, corruption, contempt, discord and terror.
The contests consisted of one-on-one combat, archery, discus throwing, and racing. Wonder Woman had decided to help the United States in particular because she had seen their war-time symbols of making a difference as being all female and assumed the US was progressively feminist, thus aligning with Themyscira's sensibilities.
Although forbidden to participate because leaving the island would mean giving up her eternal youth, Diana defied her mother and entered the contest, with her face hidden under a combat helmet. But Queen Hippolyta assumed the winner's identity before the end of the competition. Much to Queen Hippolyta's regret, she felt inclined to award Princess Diana as the winner. Diana was given a red, blue, and gold outfit which was adorned with white stars, and knee-high boots. A golden "M" (an alternate costume is seen with Zeus' sacred animal: an eagle in its place) embroidered on the upper part.
Queen Hippolyta also entrusted her with the Lasso of Truth, which compelled others to speak honestly, and impenetrable silver bracelets forged by Hephaestus. Diana took on the title Wonder Woman, and set off as the Ambassador of Peace, not only using her strength to fight evildoers and solve decisions, but her kind-heart and wit too.
Diana was the first born on Paradise Island to Queen Hippolyta, who placed all of the souls of women whom were murdered by man on the island. Diana was molded by clay when Hippolyta was instructed to in the late twentieth century, having been the soul that belonged to the unborn child of the first woman who was murdered by a man. The Greek Goddesses and Gods Athena, Demeter, Artemis, Aphrodite, Hestia and Hermes granted Diana gifts, such as strength, beauty, flight, wisdom, and courage. Diana was raised around Amazons, and when the Gods tasked the Amazons with sending one of their own into Man's World, and Diana won the contest held by her mother. Before going, she was given the Lasso of Truth, a weapon that forced anyone captured by it to admit the truth, and Sandals of Hermes, which allowed her to travel to great distances in seconds.
Becoming Wonder Woman
Being sent to man's world, Diana was tasked with promoting peace and equality, but part of it was involved with stopping a plot by Ares, the Greek God of war. In Boston, she met Steve Trevor, Etta Candy, and Julia and Vanessa Kapatelis, and was later given the title "Wonder Woman" when she defeated Ares' minion, Decay. Diana then managed to stop Ares' plot to cause a nuclear holocaust, and returned home to receive healing from Poseidon. Diana would return and became a popular superheroine to the public, and later became a founding member of the Justice League of America alongside Superman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter. During her tenure as a superheroine, Wonder Woman became the mentor of Donna Troy, who became her sidekick known as Wonder Girl. When her apprentice became a founding member of the Teen Titans, Wonder Woman supported her sidekick alongside Superman Batman, Aquaman, and the Flash.
Wonder Woman would become a great foe to many supervillains, such as Barbara Minevra, who desired to steal the Lasso of Truth from her. Minerva lied to Diana that she found the Girdle of Antiope, and when Diana learned of Barbara's trickery, the two woman battled. Minevra turned into the Cheetah, and Diana managed to defeat the supervillainess, and returned to Paradise Island after their fight. She would then battle Silver Swan, a damaged woman who was manipulated and augmented to battle the Amazon, and she evaded Diana by escaping. When the immortal sorceress Circe emerged, she sent her minions to capture Diana, and the supervillainess explained her history of killing Hippolyta's sister.
When Maxwell Lord influenced Superman, Wonder Woman nursed Batman back to health and battled Clark, who thought Diana was his enemy Doomsday. Diana then freed Superman from his mind control, and confronted Lord, who refused and mockingly stated that he was going to use the Man of Steel to kill everyone he loved. Wonder Woman then snapped Lord's neck, and his death was broadcasted by Brother-Eye to the public. The public was horrified of Wonder Woman's actions, and her relationships with Superman, Batman and other superheroes were strained due to the incident. Though Lois Lane stood up for her, and Batman and Superman later forgave Diana during the "Infinite Crisis", her image and faith in the people was tarnished.
When the "Infinite Crisis" started, Wonder Woman was not trusted by Batman or Superman, and the Dark Knight had lost some trust of his allies when the Justice League mind-wiped the incident where Dr. Light raped Sue Dibny. When Brother Eye ordered the Truth and Justice protocol, Themyscira was invaded and nearly destroyed, leaving Wonder Woman and her sisters isolated. Wonder Woman then called Athena to take the Amazonians to another dimension with Paradise Island, but Diana stayed on Earth to fight the OMACs. After helping the heroes defeat Alex Luthor, Wonder Woman stopped Batman from killing him, and mourned Superboy's death after he stopped Superboy-Prime.
One Year Later
After the events of "Infinite Crisis", Diana left the Wonder Woman mantle and disappeared, leaving Donna Troy to take on the title and continue her legacy. It was later revealed that Diana left to become a secret agent with the Department of Metahuman Affairs, going under the guise of Diana Prince. She had help in creating a new identity by Superman and Batman, with the former informing her to wear glasses to further hide her appearance. On her first mission, Diana worked with Tim Drake, Cassie Sandsmark, and Hercules in saving Donna and fighting Circe. Hercules then betrayed the group, but his and Diana's powers were stolen by Circe, but the latter managed to regain her powers and re-take the Wonder Woman title. Afterward, Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman met to re-form the Justice League to assist the Justice Society in helping the Legion of Super-Heroes.
With the relaunch of the New 52, Diana's origins were changed, with it being revealed that her experience on Themyscira and on Earth were false memories created by Deimos and Phobos. In actuality, Diana was the daughter of Queen Hippoltya and Zeus, and her real parentage was hidden to protect Diana from Zeus' wife, Hera. After the "Doomsday Clock", Doctor Manhattan fixed the timeline, having Wonder Woman be part of the history of world of men since World War II.
Princess Diana commands respect both as Wonder Woman and Diana Prince; her epithetical title – The Amazon Princess – illustrates the dichotomy of her character. She is a powerful, strong-willed character who does not back down from a fight or a challenge. Yet, she is a diplomat who strongly "favors the pen", and a lover of peace who would never seek to fight or escalate a conflict. She's simultaneously both the most fierce and most nurturing member of the Justice League; and her political connections as a United Nations Honorary Ambassador and the ambassador of a warrior nation makes her an invaluable addition to the team. With her powerful abilities, centuries of training and experienced at handling threats that range from petty crime to threats that are of a magical or supernatural nature, Diana is capable of competing with nearly any hero or villain.
Many writers have depicted Diana in different personalities and tone; between both of her diametric extremes; that of a worldly warrior, a highly compassionate and calm ambassador, and sometimes also as a naive and innocent person, depending on the writer. What has remained constant, and is a mainstay of the character, is her nurturing humanity: her overwhelming belief in love, empathy, compassion, and having a strong conscience. This trait had been the reason for her induction into the Star Sapphires.
Writer Gail Simone was applauded for her portrayal of Wonder Woman during her run on the series, with comic book reviewer Dan Phillips of IGN noting that "she's molded Diana into a very relatable and sympathetic character."
In the Golden Age, Wonder Woman adhered to an Amazon code of helping any in need, even misogynistic people, and never accepting a reward for saving someone; while conversely, the modern version of the character has been shown to perform lethal and fatal actions when left with no other alternative, exemplified in the killing of Maxwell Lord in order to save Superman's life. This has been a point of contention with both Superman and Batman with their deep principles on that matter, although they still respect her judgement.
The New 52 version of the character has been portrayed to be a younger, more headstrong, loving, fierce and willful person. Brian Azzarello stated in a video interview with DC Comics that they're building a very "confident", "impulsive" and "good-hearted" character in her. He referred to her trait of feeling compassion as both her strength and weakness.
A distinctive trait of her characterization is a group of signature mythological exclamations, beginning with "Great Aphrodite!", followed by "Great Hera!", "Merciful Minerva!", and "Suffering Sappho!', some of which were contributed by Elizabeth Holloway Marston.
Powers and Abilities
Wonder Woman posses a different ability from a select few of the Greek gods and goddesses. Originally, Wonder Woman used an invisible plane that responded to her voice and only one of Amazon descent could see, but she was later gifted with flight. Her patron goddess is Hera, queen of Olympus, goddess of marriage and wife to Zeus, who freed the Amazons from the clutches of the war god, Ares, and gave them a home on an unplottable Paradise Island. Her blessing from the gods give her the physicality far above Superman and Captain Marvel.
- Superhuman Strength: Diana has superhuman strength that is near limitless. She has been even strong enough to incapacitate a bloodlusted Superman with a kick, it should be noted that she held back. She can physically outmatch Kyrptonians, once restraining Supergirl. It should be noted that in all of her fights against Kryptonians, she usually comes out the victor. This also is impressive because she has resisted Superman who was near the sun in strength, she even holds back. This just proves her unrivaled strength. In fact, the bracelets weakened her, this means that without her bracelets Wonder Woman has overpowered Super doom (who is far stronger than Superman), making her strength increase tenfold.
- Superhuman Durability: Though bullets and knives can pierce her, they cannot be life threatening to her. In more recent years, Diana says that only god-like weapons can hurt her. She can easily survive at the core of the Sun, being punched from the Sun into the planet, point blank planetary explosions, and punches from beings like Darkseid and Superman, all of these coming out unscathed.
- Superhuman Speed: Diana has been stated by Batman to be faster then Superman. She has the speed of Hermes the messenger.
- Superhuman Stamina and Super Endurance: Wonder Woman can last a infinite amount of time in any fight and with virtually anyone. She has held her own in combat with foes as powerful as a Doomsday clone. She doesn't tire out, as her body produces no lactic acids in her muscles.
- Enhanced Healing Factor: Like the Earth, Diana is constantly renewing herself, allowing her to quickly heal mild to moderate injuries at an amazing rate. Her normal regenerative abilities allow her to recover from injury within seconds to minutes. She possesses an incredible immunity from poisons, toxins, as well as disease.
- Oneness With Fire
- Empathy: Diana can often detects others' emotions, and is now so fully immune to Doctor Psycho's illusions that she usually is not even aware of what illusions he is attempting to project.
- Superhuman Senses: Eyesight, hearing, taste, touch and smell.
- Dimensional Teleportation: On occasion, Wonder Woman can literally leave the planet through meditation. She did this to rescue Artemis when she was in hell, and has even conversed with the Greek Gods on occasion.
- Immortality: Diana cannot age, wither, or degrade and can live indefinitely, being around 5018 years old. High-Tier beings like Kyrptonians can cause her great distress and pain.
- Hand-to-Hand Combat (Advanced): Diana is the finest warrior ever born among the Amazons of Themyscira. She is a master of armed and unarmed combat, proficient with nearly every weapon ever made (especially the bow and the javelin) and the exotic martial arts styles of the Amazons. Batman once remarked that Wonder Woman is the best melee fighter in the world.
- Wisdom of Athena: Granted by Athena (Goddess of Wisdom). Diana possesses great wisdom and intelligence, though the degree varies from author to author. She is among the smartest and wisest members of the Justice League of America, along with the Martian Manhunter, Superman, and Batman.
- Multilingualism: Diana has exhibited heightened proficiency with languages, being able to speak her native Themysciran, Ancient and Modern Greek, English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Mandarin Chinese (she expressed "difficulty" with the tones of Cantonese during an interview with Lois Lane), Russian and Hindi. Plus, through precise muscle control, she can mimic other people's voices for short conversations (on the telephone). It is more difficult, for her to mimic a mans voice than another woman's voice.
- Master Tactician and Strategist: Granted by Athena (Goddess of Wisdom). Diana is an accomplished strategist and tactician, trained in the arts of leadership, persuasion and diplomacy, and possesses a great deal of courage as well. She is a gifted leader.
- Occultism: Diana possesses knowledge and understanding of magic. She has used her magical knowledge to use an alchemical spell to create a portal.
