Bio

Wonder Woman or Princess Diana is one of the first costumed female in comics; which she appeared in 1940. Wonder Woman was created by the psychologist William Moulton Marston as a counter-reaction to the early depiction of superhumans in comics, the majority of whom were male. Partially using his own wife’s achievements and personality traits as inspiration, Marston felt that a female superhero would be both entertaining and a good role model for young women.

Wonder Woman (Princess Diana) is the daughter of Hippolyta. Hippolyta is the greek amazonian queen, which makes her daughter the princess. A very long time ago before Diana was born, Hippolyta had an affair with the Greek god of War. Better known as Ares. Ares manipulated her into having sex, and she conceived a child. However, it wasn't Diana. It was a son that loved to kill just like his father. Outraged of the trickery of man, Hippolyta gathered her amazons together and she battled Ares and his army. While the amazons fought Ares' army, Hippolyta confronted Ares. Instead of killing him, Hippolyta killed his son. When she was about to strike down Ares, the greek gods Zeus and his wife Hera stopped her. Zeus didn't want his son to be slain, and Hera had to agree with her husband. So in return, Hera made Ares the prisoner of Hippolyta and also gave them a hidden island away from the world of man. This Island is Themyscira.

After three thousand years of living in isolation, Hippolyta grew weary for reasons unknown to her as the voices of Olympus grew dim as time passed and faith in them became scarce in the outside world. Seeking council, she learned of her people's past lives and that there still remained one soul inside the Cavern, that of Hippolyta's unborn child, as she was stuck down while pregnant with it. Hippolyta was instructed to fashion a body for her unborn child and open herself to Artemis while holding an image of her desire. In the darkness of the Cavern of Souls the Five Goddesses and Hermes watched as the last soul departed and blessed it with these words;

"I, Demeter grant her the power and strength like that of the Earth itself!"

"I, Aphrodite giver her great beauty and a loving heart!"

"I, Athena grant her wisdom!"

"I, Artemis shall give her the eyes of the hunter and unity with beasts!"

"I, Hestia grant her sisterhood with great fire, that may open men's hearts to her!"

"I, Hermes giver her speed and the power of flight!"

And the sculpture Hippolyta had fashioned came to life, and she became Diana. More beautiful than Aphrodite, wiser than Athena, swifter than Hermes, and stronger than Hercules.

Soon enough the world of Man found it's way back to the Amazons. Pilot (and ladies man) Steve Trevor was flying over the invisible island and hand to do an emergency landing. Hippolyta had a test for amazonians to return the American fighter pilot back to the United States. Diana snuck in and disguised herself, to win the contest. She took Trevor back to the states, and they eventually teamed up to fight against Ares when he broke out of his immortal prison. Diana decided to stay in the world of man, to be an ambassador of Themyscira and also the protector of the weak and helpless. Diana of Thmyscira is the freedom fighter known as Wonder Woman.

After many years of protecting the weak, Wonder Woman became a founding member of the Justice League. Wonder Woman is in DC's Trinity as one out of three of the world's best heroes along with Batman and Superman.
