Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman began life as a child sculpted from clay by the Amazon queen Hippolyta, who beseeched the gods of Mount Olympus to animate the sculpture as her daughter. Named after a heroic aviatrix who had once crashed on the Amazons’ island of Themyscira, Princess Diana was raised by the warrior sisterhood. In adulthood, she bested all of her sisters in a Contest to choose an ambassador to the world of man (“Patriarch’s World”) and was awarded the mantle of Wonder Woman, armed with a magical golden lasso and bulletproof bracelets as she carried the Amazons’ message of peace. Wonder Woman’s adventurous exploits quickly made her a media sensation. She is a respected member of the Justice League of America and presently serves as Themyscira’s ambassador to the United Nations.
