The Sword of Athena[1] is a magically-empowered Amazonian sword wielded by Wonder Woman in battle, replacing the Godkiller sword after the latter was destroyed by Ares.

HistoryEdit

At some point the sword was presumably created and wielded by the Olympian Goddess of Wisdom, Crafts, and Strategy, Athena.

Some time after World War I, Wonder Woman somehow acquired a replacement for Godkiller, the sword that Ares had destroyed.

Wonder Woman would eventually proceed to wield the sword against Doomsday, managing to slice off the monster's right arm with it.

CapabilitiesEdit

The Sword of Athena is an incredibly sharp and durable weapon, showing no apparent damage after Diana's extensive use of it. It is likely also magical in nature, as are many Themysciran weapons, due to it's ability to injure otherwise invulnerable beings, like Superman and Doomsday.

It has an inscription carved in a form of Greek on the blade, which translates to English as follows: "Life is killing life all the time and so the goddess kills herself in sacrifice of her own animal".[2]
