The Amazons are a graceful all-female race of warriors that inhabit the island of Themyscira. Created by the King of the Olympians, Zeus, they were Zeus' first line of defense against the force of Ares. However, after the War of the Gods, the Amazons seceded from the world on their enchanted island, forever training in anticipation of their fight with the God of War.
The Amazons bear an identical outward physical form and appearance to that of human females (as Zeus created them in the image of Olympian Goddesses). However, they are otherwise quite different from normal women, due to their superior physical attributes, as well as their superior skills (to most humans) in armed and hand-to-hand combat. Whilst living in their homeland of Themyscira, Amazons are incapable of growing old or being affected by diseases, but can still be slain or killed via gunshots or extremely sharp piercing weapons.
Roughly 25 millennia before the War of the Gods, the Amazons joined with the Atlanteans and Humanity in fighting off an Apokoliptan invasion of Earth by Steppenwolf and his massive Parademon army. Before being forced to depart, Steppenwolf left behind three Mother Boxes, and each of the three factions of the army that helped save Earth would be given one of them.
