"I am Diana of Themyscira. Daughter of Hippolyta. In the name of all that is good, your wrath upon this world is over!"
―Diana Prince[src]

Diana is an Amazon princess and superhero known as Wonder Woman. By day, she works as an antiquities dealer at the Louvre Museum as Diana Prince. She is the daughter of the Amazons' Queen Hippolyta and Olympian Gods' King Zeus. She is also called the "god killer", having been originally conceived to be the ultimate weapon against her mighty half-brother Ares' unquenchable bloodlust and warfare powers.

Diana serves as an emissary and ambassador from Themyscira, charged with the mission of bringing peace, compassion, love, and understanding to the outside world (as that was the original purpose which Zeus created the Amazons for). After meeting Steve Trevor, she would aid the Allied Powers during World War I, join Steve Trevor's team, and ultimately defeat General Erich Ludendorff, Dr. Poison, and even Ares himself.

The loss of her allies in World War I (notably the Belgian villagers whom she was unable to save from Dr. Poison, as well as her beloved Steve Trevor) had left Diana psychologically scarred and she ultimately chose to abandon superheroics and humanity for the next 100 years. Despite this, she could not bear standing idly by as the bloodthirsty juggernaut Doomsday wreaked havoc, thus allying with Superman and Batman to take him down. With Superman seemingly killed by the monster, Wonder Woman and Batman would be inspired by his noble sacrifice (with her being reminded of Steve Trevor's) to begin establishing the Justice League, in order to battle any future threats to the world.

BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Young Diana staring at the god killer sword

Diana (8 years) staring at the sword

Diana was born in approximately 3000 B.C. on the island of Themyscira, to Hippolyta, the Queen of the Amazons, mere months after the War of the Gods. As the only child on the entire island, it was harder for her to enjoy more childlike activities. To which, she soon took an active interest in Amazonian combat training, even with her mother's stern refusal of it. Despite this, Antiope, knowing the true nature of Diana's background and caring so deeply for her wellbeing, she began training the young princess herself in secret.

Eventually, this deceit was discovered by Hippolyta. While initially very angered at the defying of her decision, Antiope was able to reason with her queen, making her accept the potential danger that would come some day. To which, Diana soon began extensive training the all the various arts of the Amazons, with the goal given by her mother to become the greatest of her people and eventually became exceptionally skilled.

During one of her most severe training sessions, Antiope fought Diana with all her might, without mercy. As Diana began to be pressured, by instinctual defense, she blocked the assault with both her arms. This resulted in remarkably unleashing a powerful shock-wave, knocking back Antiope and leaving all there, including Diana herself, in complete shock.

Meeting Steve TrevorEdit

Diana rescues and meets Steve Trevor for the first time.

"You're a man?"
"Yeah... Don't I look like one?
"
―Diana and Steve Trevor[src]

A shocked Diana wandered off to the Themyscira seashore, when she unexpectedly witnessed an airplane soaring through the sky, before crashing in the nearby bay outside of Themyscira, close to the cliff where she stood. She leapt down the ocean and rescued the pilot, only to discover a human soldier named Steve Trevor lying unconsciously on the Themysciran beach. She approached him as he came to, asking him if he was a man, due to Diana never having come across a male before in her life. Though somewhat confused, Steve affirmed that he was, rhetorically asking if he looked like one.

Diana saw the German Army following Steve to Themiscyra. Steve told her that he was a good guy and the Germans were the bad guys. The two hid away and watched Amazonian army fought the Germans. Some Amazons died, Diana and Steve took part in the battle. Diana took a sword and beat down some German soldiers. A German fired at her but Antiope saw it and blocked the bullet with her body to save Diana. Before passing away, Antiope urged Diana to use the god killer and defeat Ares.

After hearing Steve talked about the war, Diana thought that Ares stood behind this and stopping Ares was the Amazons' duty. She asked Hippolyta to go with Steve to the war but her mother didn't allow her to do that. That night, Diana stole the Amazonian Shield, the Lasso of Truth and the god killer. She then escaped with Steve. Before leaving Themyscira, Hippolyta gave Diana Antiope's tiara and told her to be careful.

Experiencing LondonEdit

"The war to end all wars!"
Steve Trevor[src]

At some point, Diana left Themyscira with Steve Trevor for the United Kingdom, determined to help the Allied Powers win World War I. There she would befriend Trevor's secretary Etta Candy. Steve, Diana and Etta go to buy some clothes so that Diana will look less distracting. Along the way they confront German spies that try to retrieve the book that Steve took, blocking a bullet that was meant to shoot Steve she fights off the spies determined to get answers from one of the spies on where she can find Ares until the spy kills himself by swallowing a cyanide pill.

Diana on No Man's Land.

The following day, they go to No Man's Land where Diana sees that the people living in the villages were suffering as well. After this, she decides to go in to No Man's Land, changing into her armor and blocking the bullets with her bracelets and her shield with the assist of Steve Trevor's team.

She fights off against a group of German soldiers in a warehouse meeting the rest of Steve Trevor's team fighting off more Germans that were invading saving the village. The citizens from that town see Diana as a hero. In honor of Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor's team's bravery, a photograph was taking of her with Steve Trevor's team.

She then sees Steve on the phone with Sir Patrick Morgan, and suddenly decides that General Ludendorff is really Ares, later on Steve and Diana are seen dancing where they finally accept they have feelings for each other and they kiss, after which they proceed to spend the night together.

Infiltrating Ludendorff's galaEdit

The next day they decide to infiltrate Ludendorff's gala to learn more about the weapon he and Dr. Poison are creating and how to stop it. To enter the gala, Diana stole a dress from a guest where she dances with Ludendorff's prepared to kill him but her attempt is intervened by Steve. She hears Ludendorff release some of the gas where it kills citizens from that town.

Feeling devastated, Diana was distressed by this event blames Steve for interfering with her assassination attempt on Ludendorff thinking the people could have been saved with him already being dead.

Inflitrating Ludendorff's baseEdit

Receiving a signal from Chief, she infiltrates Ludendorff's base. She and General Ludendorff fight each other where Diana kills him. Thinking that killing Ludendorff would solve the problem, she gets confused when she sees the German soldiers loading the weapons onto the planes thinking that humankind is corrupted and it doesn't deserve her help.

Meeting AresEdit

Diana fights against Ares

Diana fights against Ares.

Diana sees Sir Patrick Morgan in the base, who reveals himself to be the true Ares, and tells her of his plan for a world without humanity by having them destroy each other. Ares proposes that Diana help him accomplish his vision of paradise but Diana promptly refuses, not wanting to kill billions of innocents. Ares then reluctantly engages her in an epic battle while Steve and his comrades attempt to dismantle the plane harboring the mustard gas.

During the fight, Steve approaches Diana who can't hear him speak due to an explosion temporarily rupturing her eardrums. Steve, after much talking, departs and leaves Diana with his watch before boarding the plane which is taking off with the mustard gas. Ares eventually restrains Diana, imploring her to surrender and realize the futility of their fight. Diana notices the plane in the sky as she's pinned to the ground and watches in horror as it explodes with Steve sacrificing himself to save billions of lives.

Enraged, Diana breaks free and begins attacking the remaining German troops at the compound. Ares attempts to manipulate the distraught warrior by presenting her with Dr. Poison, saying she should kill her as she fittingly represents the worst of humanity and the evil it can possess as he predicted to Zeus and the other Olympian Gods.

Diana lifts a tank ready to crush Dr. Poison with it but hesitates when she thinks about the love and compassion that Steve brought to her life when she realizes that he professed his love for her before leaving to die. Dropping the tank, Diana spares Dr. Poison. Ares questions her decision, who tells him that while humanity can be possible of the worst crimes she's learned it is also possible of so much more: unbridled love and compassion. Ares engages Diana in a final fight who is defeated after she fully embraces her powers as the god killer by blasting Ares with powerful lightning. The soldiers, free from Ares' corruption, stop their fighting and the war shortly finishes after.

Returning to LondonEdit

Returning to London where the people are celebrating the end of the war, Diana notices a memorial with pictures of deceased soldiers who fought in the war with Steve being among them. Diana lovingly strokes Steve's picture before closing her eyes to take in the world being at peace once again.

A century of horrorsEdit

Despite helping win the war, defeating Ares and still loving humanity, Diana is still left sobered, emotionally broken, psychologically scarred, and devastated over not having been able to save the Belgian village from Dr. Poison, as well as over her beloved Steve Trevor's self-sacrificing death. Indeed, Diana would later claim that she "would never be the same" ever again after World War I. Moreover, in the years that followed, Diana bore witness to a "century of horrors" (World War II, Cold War proxy wars, Fascism, Communism, nuclear weapons' deployment, revolutions, geopolitical brinkmanship, racism, homophobia, genocides, war crimes, propaganda, and etc.), and due to all of this occurring without Ares being there to spread corruption, Diana almost completely loses faith in humanity, coming to believe that humans "made a world where standing together is impossible." As such, Diana resolves to mostly abandon superheroism, and does so for 100 years.

At some point during this century, Diana replaces her destroyed sword with the Sword of Athena, slays more sinister "beings from other worlds", moves to France, and becomes a professional antiquities dealer, with the Louvre Museum at some point employing her as the Curator for the Department of Antiquities.[1]

Encounter with SlipknotEdit

84 years after World War I in 2002, Diana briefly came out of her heroic exile. She was forced to fight killer and thief Slipknot, whom she effortlessly defeated and left to be apprehended by the FBI. Diana got involved because she took personal issue against Slipknot's known cruelty towards women, and therefore wanted him brought to justice.[citation needed]

Monitored by Lex LuthorEdit

13 years after Slipknot's imprisonment, after examining the photo of Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor's team taken in 1918 Belgium, Lex Luthor uses facial recognition software to deduce that the great Amazon warrior is in fact still alive, under the alias of "Diana Prince," working at the Louvre Museum, and he obtains footage of Diana in Paris, France, which has her exiting a taxi and entering a shop, in civilian clothing.

Lex Luthor's fundraiserEdit

Diana becomes aware that Lex Luthor has in his possession the photograph of her and Steve Trevor's team, the only picture of her together with her deceased beloved.

Hence, in an effort to finally reclaim it and Steve's memory, Diana flies from France to the United States, and manages to get invited to a charity function hosted by Lex Luthor at his villa, an event which is also attended by Gotham City billionaire Bruce Wayne and illustrious Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent.

Diana leaves Lex Luthor's fundraiser

Diana departs, with Bruce's device.

During his greeting speech, Lex makes a reference to how Zeus cruelly punished the Titan Prometheus for enlightening humankind, much to the visible dismay of Diana. Shortly thereafter, she covertly steals a hacking device of Bruce Wayne's, who is likewise investigating Lex Luthor. She exits the party with Bruce pursuing her, but manages to make it to her car and drive off just in time for Bruce to see her depart.

Confronted by BruceEdit

"The other night you took something that didn't belong to you. Stealing's not polite!
"Is it stealing if you steal from another thief?
"
Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince[src]

Diana is confronted by Bruce.

Later, Diana is seen in the Gotham City Museum of Antiquities (with ancient Greco-Roman exhibits), conversing with an elderly couple, when the curator comes up, and offers to show her something of interest. She politely excuses herself and follows him to the exhibit of the fake replica of Alexander the Great's sword, which the ancient conqueror of the Middle East had used to cut the Gordian knot.

While Diana stands there admiring the replica, Bruce Wayne appears. He proceeds to angrily confront her by grabbing Diana's arm and asking her about the information device that she had stolen. Bruce claims to see right through her "babe in the woods" act, saying that while Diana doesn't know him, he's met "a few women like [her]". Diana, however, calmly smiles and claims to be sure that Bruce has never met a woman like her. She then proceeds to tell Bruce that she was unable to obtain anything from Bruce's device, due to Lex Luthor's data having military-grade encryption. Diana explains her intention to re-obtain her photograph from Luthor, lets Bruce know that she only borrowed his device, and has already returned in to him shortly beforehand (placing it into the glove compartment of his car), before calmly excusing herself and leaving.

True identity uncoveredEdit

"Found your photograph. But it doesn't belong to you... It IS you. Who are you? Where have you been?"

Still puzzled as to Diana's identity, Bruce discovers more about her amongst the data he stole from Lex Luthor. He sees a photograph of her alongside Steve Trevor's team, taken in Belgium in 1918 during the closing days of World War I. He then makes contact with her via her laptop, sharing extra information that Luthor had on both her and other metahumans, such as the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg. Diana is visibly intrigued and shocked at this revelation, as Flash's lightning reminds her of that of Ares, Aquaman reminds her of depictions of Poseidon, while the Mother Box that created Cyborg reminds her of the one she briefly saw back on Themyscira. Diana resolves to take some time to think this revelation over, does not answer Bruce's e-mail, and instead proceeds with her plans to depart Metropolis on a flight back to France, through Turkey.

Battle with DoomsdayEdit

"This thing is from another world. My world."
"I've killed things from other worlds before.

Superman and Wonder Woman[src]

Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman, united against Doomsday.

When news broke of Doomsday's attack on Metropolis, Diana was boarding an airplane bound for Turkey. Seeing what was happening, she left the flight before takeoff. Diana once again dons her Wonder Woman armor and weapons, heading for Gotham City to help Batman and Superman in their battle against this incredibly powerful monstrous opponent.

As Wonder Woman joins the Battle against Doomsday, she arrives just in time to save Batman from Doomsday's lethal thermal blast, deflecting the beams with her indestructible bracelets. She then jointly attacks Doomsday with Superman while Batman tries to expose the creature to Kryptonite, allowing its destruction. She relentlessly battles the monster, and despite Doomsday being stronger, Wonder Woman held her own, parrying a tremendous punch with the Sword of Athena, and then slicing off Doomsday's right arm with it. Eventually, Batman baits the monster into coming closer to her, allowing Wonder Woman to hurl the noose of her unbreakable Lasso of Truth around

his torso. Superman then promptly flew back, wielding the Kryptonite spear, and managed to impale the monster's chest. The mortally wounded Doomsday bellowed in agony, releasing immense amounts of electricity from his body, which made Wonder Woman momentary loose her footing, loosening the lasso's hold and allowing the monster to mortally stab Superman.

While a visibly shell-shocked and saddened Batman promptly retrieves Superman's lifeless body (enveloping him in his own cape), Wonder Woman gives Lois Lane a sad glance of empathy (recalling her own reaction upon seeing Steve Trevor's self-sacrificing death), and takes the body from Batman, gently placing it on the ground before them. Lois proceeds to cradle and weep over her fallen beloved, as Wonder Woman and Batman stand next to her in respectful lamenting silence. Wonder Woman was astounded to have finally, after 100 years, meet a person who had both the phenomenal godly might of Ares, and the self-sacrificing morality of Steve Trevor, and equally saddened at his death, due to now not having the chance to get to know Superman.

Superman's funeral - the Dawn of JusticeEdit

"A hundred years ago, I walked away from mankind, from a century of horrors... Men made a world where standing together is impossible."
―Diana[src]
Bruce and Diana at Clark's funeral

Diana attends Clark's funeral in Smallville along with Bruce, with the latter paying for it as an anonymous donor. The two share a conversation about honoring Superman by bringing together the three other metahumans (Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg), in case a worse threat to the world should ever arise. Diana inquires why Bruce is proposing it. He replies that it is simply due to a feeling he has that things will imminently get worse (in reality, he was following the instructions given to him by the scarlet time-traveler that appeared in one of his "dreams", as well as heeding Lex Luthor's enigmatic warning). While Diana still expresses doubt about humankind, Bruce assures her that it is still good and capable of improvement. Diana walk away from the graveyard, pondering his words.

Correspondence with BruceEdit

Considering Bruce's offer, Diana meanwhile returns to her job as Curator for the Department of Antiquities[2] at the Louvre Museum. Bruce eventually sends Diana a package, which contains the original, physical photograph of herself with Steve Trevor's team. This causes her to reminisce over her childhood, naive idealism, and all of the ensuing events of World War I. Recalling Steve Trevor's belief in her, his self-sacrificing death, as well as how Superman's equally selfless death had reminded her that it is possible for individuals to have both the phenomenal godly might of Ares, and the self-sacrificing morality of Steve Trevor, Diana finally begins to regain hope in what Bruce had told her during their last meeting, and sends him a thankful e-mail. Diana then promptly dons her Wonder Woman armor, ready to officially return to superheroism after hearing a disturbance in the distance of Paris by sailing off the roof of the Louvre Museum at sunset in Paris to confront it.

PersonalityEdit

"I am Diana of Themyscira. Daughter of Hippolyta. In the name of all that is good, your wrath upon this world is over!"
―Wonder Woman[src]

Diana is a very kind, loving, compassionate, and benevolent person, who, while initially somewhat naive, is an outspoken egalitarian[3], evidenced by her asking her mother Hippolyta with incredulous outrage why she and the other Amazons have chosen to abandon humankind, despite being initially created by Zeus to spread love and mutual understanding among humanity, as well as protect it from Ares. Growing up, Diana also proves herself headstrong and determined, enthusiastically wishing to learn armed and hand-to-hand combat under her aunt Antiope's tutelage, despite her mother initially forbidding it. Diana becomes more determined than ever to leave Themyscira and help save "Man's World" after her aunt Antiope sacrifices herself to save Diana's life and tells Diana with her final breath that the time has finally come. Indeed, Diana became so determined to leave Themyscira after that, that even Hippolyta (albeit begrudgingly) finally agreed to let her leave. Diana is also a very naive idealist when first arriving in "Man's World", for instance believing the story that she had been sculpted from clay, and that the World War I Central Powers would simply abandon their sinister ways if she kills Ares. In addition, Diana also voiced her opinions rather bluntly and rashly back then, perceiving Etta Candy's job as Steve Trevor's secretary to be akin to slavery (which earns Diana Etta's admiration).

Due to still not understanding her powers (which came from Diana believing her mother Hippolyta's lie about Diana having been sculpted from clay and brought to life by Zeus), however, Diana subconsciously suppressed them, and while still incredibly powerful, this mental block considerably limited Diana relative to her full potential (to the point that enhanced metahuman General Ludendorff was able to initially keep up with her in a fight), and prohibited her from mastering the powers of amokinesis and divine electrokinesis. However, once Diana finally learned of her Olympian God heritage from Ares and embraced who she is as the demigoddess god killer daughter of Zeus, Diana finally permanently overcame this weakness and gained her full potential, becoming not only much more powerful than ever before, but also finally unlocking her powers of amokinesis and divine electrokinesis (which allowed her to overpower Ares), in addition to becoming more optimistic and confident as the god killer.

Diana begins to lose faith in both humanity and herself when killing General Ludendorff (whom she assumed to be Ares) didn't end the war, and when finally confronted by the actual Ares, her eyes are truly opened to humanity's inherent potential for evil, and while she clings on to her love and compassion for humanity in order to defeat the God of War, Diana is still left sobered, emotionally broken, psychologically scarred, and devastated over not having been able to save the Belgian village from Dr. Poison, as well as over her beloved Steve Trevor's self-sacrificing death, and not believing that other humans are capable of the same level of selflessness, after witnessing the ensuing "century of horrors" (World War II, Cold War proxy wars, Fascism, Communism, nuclear weapons' deployment, revolutions, geopolitical brinkmanship, racism, homophobia, genocides, war crimes, propaganda, and etc.). Indeed, Diana would later claim that after her experiences in "Man's World", she "would never be the same" ever again. As such, Diana resolves to mostly abandon superheroism, and does so for 100 years following World War I. However, she was ultimately unable to bear standing idly by while the seemingly unstoppable juggernaut Doomsday wrecked havoc, and ultimately joined the battle with the monster, saving Batman in the process. After witnessing the self-sacrificing death of Superman in that battle, Diana is astounded to have finally, after 100 years, met a person who had both the phenomenal godly might of Ares, and the self-sacrificing morality of Steve Trevor, and therefore while very saddened by Superman's death, it induced her to slowly begin regaining hope in humanity and superheroism, recalling Steve Trevor's immense belief in her.

Due to her benevolent and loving nature, Diana is also exceptionally considerate, diplomatic, and empathetic, with her diplomatically accepting a false antiquities claim (about a replica of Alexander the Great's sword) and a glass of wine from the curator of the Gotham City Museum of Antiquities, giving Lois Lane a sad glance of silent empathy after the latter's beloved Superman had seemingly been killed (recalling her own pain during Steve Trevor's death), and notably treating both Charlie and the Flash with compassion, despite the former's initial skepticism about her and poor self-esteem, and the latter's tendency to somewhat annoy her and the other Justice Leaguers with his humorous attitude[4]. Indeed, Wonder Woman's compassion and unbreakable spirit gave a renewed hope to Steve Trevor's team, energizing them past the point of purely monetary interests, with Chief resolving to no longer be neutral in the war and believing her story of the Olympian Gods, Sameer finally admitting his passion for acting, and even the depressed Charlie struggling with PTSD finally beginning to sing again for the first time in years. Likewise, during the Justice League's battle against Steppenwolf's forces, Wonder Woman was able to inspire confidence into the inexperienced Flash and Cyborg, assuring them that they wouldn't need to fight the Apokoliptan invasion alone. When humanity's inherent potential for evil is revealed to her by Ares, Wonder Woman, while initially taken aback, ultimately rejects the prospect of alliance with Ares against them, even if that were to mean missing out on "paradise" on Earth, and instead courageously confronts him, as the god killer.

When someone she cares about is hurt, Wonder Woman becomes far more relentless and ruthless in battle. When seemingly beaten by Ares (who was only growing more powerful from her violence, rage, and hatred) and having to watch her beloved Steve Trevor die, this made her go into an agonizing rage, as she assaulted and brutalized several armed German soldiers with immense speed and ferocity. She even came close to murdering Dr. Poison as vengeance for Steve's death, all under Ares's influence. But recalling Steve's great love for and undying belief in her, made Diana realize that she too loved him and was thereby able to muster up enough willpower, restraint, compassion and love to overcome her violent emotions and tendencies, thus was able to swiftly overpower an angered Ares.

After living in "Man's World" for a century following World War I, Diana gradually became far wiser, more experienced, and very sophisticated, no longer having issues blending in with human high class society, with her tremendously long immortal life allowing Diana to accumulate an immense amount of knowledge on antiques (though seemingly specializing in ancient Greco-Roman ones, as daughter of Zeus), to the point that she works as Curator for the Department of Antiquities[5] at the extremely prestigious Louvre Museum and is held in very high esteem by the curator of the Gotham City Museum of Antiquities. This, in addition to her exceptional perceptiveness, makes Diana the wisest and most emotionally intelligent member of the Justice League.

In addition, Diana greatly respects other noble selfless warriors, as she attended Superman's funeral in Smallville and spoke of how he had been much more than a soldier (adding to what Batman said about Metropolis burying an empty casket), despite never getting to know Superman personally, since she saw much of Steve Trevor in him. As a result of her great posthumous respect, she was therefore more than willing to aid Batman in honoring the heroic death of Superman, by helping round up the metahumans from Lex Luthor's files into a team of superheroes (later known as the Justice League) to protect the world from the imminent mysterious alien invader Darkseid and his Parademon minions, after Superman's death left the world vulnerable.

While benevolent, Diana is also a fierce warrior, and ruthless when facing her mortal enemies in battle as Wonder Woman. Her love of the challenge of battle caused Diana to smile and briefly laugh when she was beaten to the ground by Doomsday, as she was intrigued by his phenomenal strength, having not come across an opponent of such power since Ares, causing her to briefly smile at the challenge to defeat him. Diana was also annoyed by Doomsday, however, after first being attacked by him, causing her to eagerly hit the monster back, harder than before. Diana did, however, take the fight seriously, and performed to the best of her ability to stop the threat the monstrous juggernaut posed, notably restraining Doomsday while Batman weakened him with a Kryptonite gas grenade, and Superman delivered the killing blow.

In addition, Diana appears to hold her father Zeus in very high esteem, as she was visibly angered when Lex Luthor referred to him distastefully while discussing the story of the Titan Prometheus.
