"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]

Princess Diana is an Amazonian warrior princess and one of the world's first superheroes, known as Wonder Woman. She is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta and Zeus, king of the Olympians. Born on Themyscira, Diana was raised in paradise, hearing tales of her sisters' great task of defeating the God of War, Ares, and bringing peace to the world, ushering in a new era of peace to the world. Upon coming of age, Diana began pursuing the life of a warrior, despite her mother's rejections. Determined to serve, she ultimately enticed her aunt Antiope to train her in secret, but was soon discovered by her mother, Queen Hippolyta. Begrudgingly, the queen accepted Diana as a warrior, and ordered Antiope to train her better than any other Amazon.

After a training session, Diana happened to come across Captain Steve Trevor during his escape from the Imperial German Army. A battle soon followed, as the Germans tracked Trevor to Themyscira, where they invaded in pursuit of Doctor Poison's notes. The loss of her aunt and realization of Mankind's downfall during the absence of the amazons convinced Diana to join the war effort, recognizing Ares as the instigator of the conflict.

In the following days, Diana soon uncovered Ares, who exposed her to be the God Killer, having been originally conceived to be the ultimate weapon against her brother. Following this revelation, a fierce battle ensued, where Diana fulfilled her purpose in freeing Mankind from Ares' influence. However, the loss of Steve in World War I had left Diana sobered but ultimately chose to protect humanity when ever she was needed but in a cautious and distant way.

In modern times, Diana operates as the curator of the Louvre Museum as Diana Prince. Two years following the Battle of Metropolis, Diana came into conflict with Lex Luthor, who somehow came across a photograph of Diana and the Wonder Men during his search for metahumans. During her pursuit of Luthor, Diana crossed paths with Bruce Wayne, who discovered her secret after their confrontation, during his search for the White Portuguese. Later, along with the photograph on Luthor's files Bruce sent her, Diana discovered the evidence of metahumans in the world. With her mission fulfilled, Diana prepared to depart back to London, but the emergence of the monstrous Doomsday led Diana to ally herself with Superman and Batman to take down the monster in a fierce battle that ended with the tragic death of Superman.

Afterwards, in the wake of Clark's funeral, Diana and Bruce decided to create a team to battle any future threats to the world. As the world mourned for the Man of Steel, Diana combatted the rise of radicals who saw Superman's death as an omen and capitalized on the world's vulnerability.

Shortly after the team assembled, Wonder Woman assisted in helping a newly resurrected Superman regain his memories. With the team now fully assembled, Wonder Woman contributed to the successful offensive against Steppenwolf, forcing the alien invasion into retreat. Afterwards, She further planned for the Justice League's future alongside Bruce Wayne.

Biography

Early life

Childhood

Young Diana staring at the god killer sword

Diana (8 years) staring at the sword

Diana was born circa 1216 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 the Amazon's combat training, even with her mother's stern refusal of it. Despite this, her aunt Antiope, knowing the true nature of Diana's background and caring so deeply for her well-being, began training the young princess herself in secret.

Training

Diana (12 years) training with her aunt Antiope.

Eventually, this deceit was discovered by Hippolyta. While initially very angered at Antiope defying her decision, the General was able to reason with her queen, making her accept the potential danger that would come some day. Thus, 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, surpassing Antiope herself - the Amazons' fiercest warrior.

During one of her most severe training sessions, Antiope fought Diana with all her might, without mercy. As Diana began to be pressured, she instinctively blocked the assault, resulting in her unleashing a powerful shockwave, knocking back Antiope and leaving all spectating Amazons there, including Diana herself, in complete shock.

World War I

Meeting Steve Trevor

Steve Trevor and Diana on the beach

Diana rescues and meets Steve Trevor for the first time.

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

A shocked Diana wandered off to the Themysciran seashore, when she unexpectedly witnessed an airplane soaring through the sky out of nowhere, before crashing in the nearby bay outside of Themyscira, close to the cliff where she stood. She leaped 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 having never come across a male before in her life. Though somewhat confused, Steve affirmed that he was, rhetorically asking whether or not 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 as the Amazon army fought the Germans. Witnessing some of her fellow Amazons die, Diana and Steve took part in the battle. Diana took a sword and quickly slew a number of 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.

Diana before stealing the armor

Diana before stealing the Amazon battle armor.

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 allow her to go with Steve to the war and face the mad god, but her mother briskly refused, much to Diana's anger and confusion. That night, Diana stole an Amazon shield, along with the Lasso of Hestia and the god killer. She then escaped with Steve but was intercepted and sent off by her mother, who understood her daughter too well to think she'd listen to her orders.

Before leaving Themyscira, Hippolyta gave Diana Antiope's tiara and told her to be careful. Hippolyta relented, mournfully telling Diana that the world of Man did not deserve someone as innocent as herself.

Diana watched as her home vanished before her eyes as she passed the veil into the world of Man.

At some point, Diana arrived at 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 were confronted by German spies that try to retrieve Dr. Poison's book that Steve had previously stolen. As the spies drew the weapons, Diana reacted quickly, blocking a bullet that was meant for Steve, subsequently fighting off the spies' barrage of gunfire in the cramped alleyway, determined to get answers from one of them on where she can find Ares. However, one of the spies she managed to capture kills himself by swallowing a cyanide pill.

Meeting Ares

Diana fights against Ares

Diana fights against Ares.

"I SHALL DESTROY YOU!"
"Goodbye, brother.
"
―Wonder Woman and Ares[src]

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.

Wonder Woman vs Ares

An enraged Diana unleashing her true power.

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 Old 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 sacrifice himself. Dropping the tank, Diana spares Dr. Poison, telling ares that he is wrong about humanity .She tells him that while humans are everything ares says and can be capable of the worst crimes, she's learned that they are equally capable of so much more: unbridled love and compassion. Ares engages Diana in a final fight but is defeated after she fully embraces her powers as the god killer and blasts Ares with powerful divine lightning. The soldiers, free from Ares' corruption, stop their fighting, thereby finally ending the war.

Aftermath of the War

Returning to London

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 Horrors

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" (Wars, Fascism, Communism, nuclear weapons' deployment, 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 lost faith in humanity, coming to believe that humans "made a world where standing together is impossible." As such, Diana resolved to mostly abandon superheroism for 100 years.

At some point before this century, Diana replaces her destroyed sword with the Sword of Athena, slays more sinister "beings from other worlds", moves to France, and became a professional antiquities dealer, with the Louvre Museum at some point employing her as the Curator for the Department of Antiquities.[2]

Encounter with Slipknot

In 2002. Diana fought 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.[3]

Monitored by Lex Luthor

13 years after Slipknot's imprisonment, after examining the photo of Wonder Woman and the Wonder Men 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.

Meeting Bruce Wayne

Lex Luthor's Fundraiser

Diana at Lex Luthor's fundraiser

Diana, listening to Luthor's speech.

Diana eventually became aware that Lex Luthor had in his possession the photograph of her and the Wonder Men, the only picture of her together with her deceased beloved.

Hence, in an effort to finally reclaim it and Steve's memory, Diana flew from France to the United States, and managed 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 made a reference to how Zeus cruelly punished the Titan Prometheus for enlightening humankind, much to the visible dismay of Diana. Shortly thereafter, she covertly stole a hacking device of Bruce Wayne's, who is likewise investigating Lex Luthor. She exited 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 Bruce

Diana Prince and Bruce Wayne

Diana is confronted by Bruce.

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

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 stood admiring the replica, Bruce Wayne appeared. 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 retorts that Bruce has never met any women 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, stating that she only borrowed Bruce's device, and has already returned it to him shortly beforehand (placing it into the glove compartment of his car), before calmly excusing herself and leaving.

Finding the Truth

"Found your photograph. But it doesn't belong to you... It IS you. Who are you? Where have you been?"
Bruce's email to Diana[src]
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 the Wonder Men, 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.

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 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.

Wonder Woman attacks Doomsday

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 Hestia 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 lose 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 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 equally saddened at his death, due to now not having the chance to get to know Superman.

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). Diana walks away from the graveyard, pondering his words.

Correspondence with Bruce

Considering Bruce's offer, Diana meanwhile returns to her job as Curator for the Department of Antiquities[2] at the Louvre Museum. Bruce sends Diana a package, which contains the original, physical photograph of herself with the Wonder Men. This causes her to reminisce about her childhood, naive idealism, and all of the ensuing events of World War I. She sends a thankful e-mail. Diana then dons her Wonder Woman armor after hearing a disturbance in the distance of Paris by sailing off the roof of the museum at sunset in Paris to confront it.

"I'm glad I'm alive to see this!"
"Me too."
"Oh, now you're glad.
"
Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman[src]
After the defeat of Steppenwolf, The League observes the beauty of the small town in Russia and later on helps Bruce move forward with plans to expand the league with more at the empty Wayne Manor as their base. Diana also captures art thieves at a museum who are lassoed and she is greeted by kids.

Personality

Diana is a very kind, loving, compassionate, and benevolent person, who, while initially somewhat naive, is an outspoken egalitarian[4], 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 Old 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 been killed (recalling her own pain during Steve Trevor's death), smiling when Aquaman accidentally confessed his secret crush on her, 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[5]. Diana only ever displayed signs of anger when someone blatantly disrespected something very dear to her - notably when she shot an angry gaze at Lex Luthor (after he'd insulted her father Zeus's memory), and when she shoved back Batman (after he'd insulted her beloved Steve Trevor's memory). Indeed, Wonder Woman's compassion and unbreakable spirit gave a renewed hope to the Wonder Men, 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 Old 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 in 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 an 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[2] 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 not 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 Steppenwolf and his Parademon minions, after Superman's death left the world vulnerable. Due to this respect for him, she was opposed to the idea of resurrecting him despite wishing he were still alive but eventually decided to be by his side after an argument with Batman (whom she was still angry with). In addition, she was the most optimistic when she saw him alive and the most understanding when she recognized his lack of memory. When he acted hostile because of his amnesia, she was extremely ambivalent about fighting him and even implored him not to force her to, showing him compassion and persistence while attempting to get him to remember who he is (even calling him by his birth name). When Lois arrives at the battle's end to calm Superman down and take him away, Diana is slightly relieved but was visibly the most disappointed by his departure. Once Superman recovers and arrives to fight alongside her and the others, however, she and he quickly strike up a close friendship, with Diana smiling and agreeing about him not missing out on the positive results of their victory over Steppenwolf.

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.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Olympian Goddess-Amazon Hybrid: As daughter of the king of the Olympians Gods, Zeus and the Queen of Amazons, Hippolyta, Wonder Woman possesses incredible supernatural powers and superhuman attributes that surpass many other powerful beings, with only her father, her older brother and Superman being known to surpass her in power. As the warrior princess of Themyscira, Wonder Woman trained in the arts of battle, which she has practiced for centuries. She is recognized as relying solely on her superior fighting ability, strength and near invulnerability. Wonder Woman generally restrains her divine power unless she fights against someone with the same strength and durability, due to the destruction that it can cause to the environment.

  • Superhuman Strength: Wonder Woman, as a demigod, has incredible superhuman strength, although not nearly at the same level as Ares, Superman or Doomsday. Therefore, even before reaching her maximum potential, Wonder Woman has defeated many amazons during her training, knocking down one with a bow and the other with her shield. She was also able to eventually overtake Antiope and with a kick, disarm her of her sword. During a fight in a bar, Wonder Woman was able to easily throw a man across a room with swift motion of her hand. Wonder Woman was able to withstand a hail of bullets in her shield (although it took considerable effort), knocked down many German soldiers with her shield and lasso, deflected a missile with her shield and threw an armored Ehrhardt EV 4. She also defeated the mighty metahuman General Luderdorff in a brief but intense struggle. During her fight against Ares, Wonder Woman was able to stay in combat against the God of War, albeit with considerable effort and Ares being greatly weakened from his defeat by Zeus. After reaching her full potential as a demigod, Wonder Woman knocked down a small German battalion with only her strength, carried a very large Mark IV tank and finally she was able to fight almost evenly with Ares, although only through her divine power was she able to truly defeat him. Wonder Woman was also able to make the monster Doomsday stagger with her blows, stopping a massive blow of the Kryptonian deformity with her sword, and could even bring it down with a blow of his shield on the feet of the latter. She could also fight on two occasions almost evenly with Steppenwolf, blocking a massive blow from the latter's Electro Axe with her shield and even grabbing it from the waist and knocking it down through a concrete wall and crashing it against a wall, although all this with considerable effort and the use of her weapons. Wonder Woman was able to briefly hold her own against a resurrected Superman, causing him to back off a bit with his shield and leave him for a dazed for a few seconds with a blow to his head (and even generating a shock wave with the headbutt), although she was ultimately overpowered and defeated by the Kryptonian.
    • Super Leaps: Wonder Woman is able to use her incredible strength to jump immense vertical and horizontal distances, with her leaping across an entire field effortlessly, while fighting Doomsday. Even when she was only a child, Wonder Woman could jump great distances.
  • Superhuman Durability: The skin, muscle and bone tissue of Wonder Woman has a density much greater than a human being (and even most meta humans) and is almost invulnerable. Even when as a child, Diana could jump long distances without hurting herself. While training with the other Amazons, Wonder Woman was not much affected by their attacks, especially from strong Amazons like Antiope and Artemis, as well as resisting blows of an enhanced General Ludendorff. Wonder Woman's durability allowed her to withstand blows from Ares, despite the considerably greater power of the God of War, as well as a direct hit from a sword built by Ares, an explosion of lightning that sent her flying and left her somewhat dazed, and even a tremendous explosion that left her dazed and almost deaf for a few minutes. After reaching her full potential as a demigoddess, Wonder Woman became considerably more durable, enough to withstand the massive blows of the Doomsday monster, being sent flying several times by the monster and leaving completely unscathed. She was also able to resist the lightning, thermal vision and waves of electric shocks of Doomsday, being blasted by the thermal thick beam without suffering any type of injury. Wonder Woman came out completely unscathed and without a scratch from her fierce battles with Steppenwolf and Superman, even though Steppenwolf hit her constantly with her Electro Axe and Superman hit her hard enough to leave her incapacitated. While Wonder Woman can be affected by the considerable force of the powerful impacts, they only make her stumble and knock her down briefly, leaving her unscathed, with Wonder Woman even smiling after a mighty Doomsday blow knocked her away (appreciating the power of a worthy opponent), and quickly rises to face the monster again with renewed ferocity. However, Wonder Woman can be wounded by very sharp objects, such as bullets and blades. She usually compensates for this with her healing factor and her immensely durable battle armor along with her Bracelets of Submission and her indestructible shield.
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: Wonder Woman, in the rare instances when she is hurt, is able to heal wounds at superhuman rates. During a battle between invading German soldiers and Amazons on Themyscira, Diana sustained a mild cut to her upper arm, which healed completely later that day. However, catastrophic wounds such as decapitation or having vital organs (such as her heart or brain) pierced, would kill her.
    • Poison Immunity: Wonder Woman was able to walk right through a cloud of Dr. Poison's extra lethal hydrogen-based mustard gas without suffocating, and with little to no discomfort.
  • Superhuman Speed: Wonder Woman, while not quite as fast as Superman or the Flash, can move at considerable superhuman speeds, successfully using her reflexes to deflect most attacks with her bracelets, even many bullets at once, as she is fast enough to see them flying in the air (as if they were moving in slow motion). Thus, she was fast enough to get up from her seat and disarm a man of his gun and toss him across a room in seconds, to leave Lex Luthor's fundraiser before Bruce managed to reach her, to save Batman from Doomsday's thermal attack just in time, and to instantly use the Sword of Athena to slice apart in mid-air a car that Doomsday hurled at her. Indeed, Wonder Woman appeared as a blur when charging back at Doomsday after being knocked back by him. She was also capable of landing blows on Superman, even though she was outmatched.
    • Superhuman Reflexes: Wonder Woman's speed extends to her reflexes as well, even if she is not moving at superspeed, as when a World War I German soldier fired his gun past her, the bullet appeared to be moving in slow motion from her perspective. She repeatedly used this skill to deflect bullets with her Bracelets of Submission and block the blows of her opponents with ease. 100 years later, Wonder Woman's reflexes improve further, to the point that she was able to block all of the rapid machine-gun shots of a British terrorist with her bracelets, leaving the people standing behind her unscathed. Also, when she dropped her sword mid-battle with Parademons, Wonder Woman was able to perceive Flash super speeding towards her fallen weapon, and hence outstretched her hand while he returned the sword to her grasp. Her reflexes were not powerful enough to contend with those of Flash or resurrected Superman, however, as Superman managed to grasp Wonder Woman's Bracelets of Submission before she could clash them.
  • Superhuman Agility: Wonder Woman has a superhuman level of agility, allowing her to jump up immense distances and come down in elaborate somersaults, to swiftly and easily take down many World War I soldiers, while dodging and weaving around their attacks, and to even dodge quite a few attacks from the equally fast Ares and Doomsday.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Wonder Woman's tremendous stamina enables her to exert herself at peak capacity for very lengthy periods of time without tiring at all, with her notably never needing to slow down or catch her breath during her ferocious battles with Ares, Doomsday, Steppenwolf, and a resurrected Superman, despite her being considerably pressured by all of them.
  • Superhuman Senses: Wonder Woman, due to her demigoddess physiology, has all of her senses superhumanly enhanced, much like those of Superman. This allowed her to clearly see Steve Trevor from miles away when his plane crash-landed near Themyscira.
  • Immortality: Wonder Woman, due to being an Amazon, has lived for millennia without visibly aging, with her being roughly 800 years old (having been born right after the War of the Gods), and having been present in "Man's World" since World War I. She is thus the oldest member of the Justice League by far (though still roughly millenia younger than Enchantress, and even more so than Ares and Steppenwolf), making her an ageless immortal, much like Superman.
  • Divine Energy Generation:
    Diana-Blocks-Power

    Diana uses her divine power

    Wonder Woman, by clashing her Bracelets of Submission together, can release a huge spherical blast of orange (or sometimes white-hot) energy, with it being powerful enough to accidentally injure Antiope, send the mighty gods Ares and Steppenwolf flying, and even make the gigantic monster Doomsday get pushed back from the force of it.At full power, Wonder Woman could generate these shock-waves from her body, notably to destroy the restrains Ares put her in, as well as shielding herself with it, as the debris Ares sent flying at her disintegrated against the invisible field as she built up her attack. She could also freeze the momentum of targets in front of her, causing Ares to be forcibly suspending in the air when he tried flying into her before she blasted him away. Wonder Woman can also transmit this energy through her shield, since when she struck one of her bracelets with her shield she generated an energy wave that knocked down a bridge and, to Cyborg and Steppenwolf with it.
  • Electrokinesis: Wonder Woman, as the demigoddess daughter of Zeus, has some degree of power over divine lightning, as she caught, absorbed and then redirected the tremendous torrents right back at the God of War, killing him.
  • Levitation: Wonder Woman possesses the ability to temporarily defy gravity and hover in the air, though it is not quite as advanced as the flight power of a Kryptonian or Old God. While defeating Ares, she leapt into the air, and hovered for a few seconds, before gently floating down.

Abilities

Wonder Woman Leg Sweep

  • Master Combatant: Wonder Woman, having been trained in combat tactics by Menalippe and Antiope, is a tremendously skilled, fierce, and formidable hand-to-hand combatant (being at least on par with Batman[4]), a master of a vast array of uniquely martial arts, as well as an expert in most types of melee weapons (though she most frequently uses her bracelets, lasso, sword, and even shield) with centuries of combat experience, with her claiming to have fought and defeated several beings from "other worlds" (which includes even the fearsome God of War Ares himself). Wonder Woman swiftly became the greatest warrior of Themyscira, her tremendous combat skills eventually becoming enough to rival even those of her mentor Antiope and ultimately surpassing her upon acquiring full potential, due to the latter (upon Hippolyta's insistence) training her much harder than any Amazon ever before her. Hence, Wonder Woman defeated the notorious Slipknot with effortless ease[3], as well as many World War I soldiers (even the enhanced General Ludendorff was defeated and killed relatively quickly by her), and numerous Parademons single-handedly, seamlessly incorporating hand-to-hand combat, sword sashes with the god killer (and later with the Sword of Athena), and her Lasso of Hestia against them in her own personalized formidable style. Indeed, Wonder Woman's tremendous skill and exceptionally versatile style make her capable of effectively holding her own against either more experienced or more powerful opponents, even the mighty God of War Ares (albeit only with considerable effort and initial failure, given his superior combat experience, and her need to use a non-violent mindset), the New God Steppenwolf, an enraged resurrected Superman, and the gigantic Doomsday, with her managing to temporarily knock the latter fearsome monster down (by smashing his feet from under him with her shield), and even temporarily restrain him with her Lasso of Hestia, as well as cut off his right arm with the Sword of Athena. Indeed, had Doomsday not had his incredibly adaptable healing factor, it is safe to assume that Wonder Woman's tremendous combat skills would have allowed her to ultimately defeat him. Moreover, even when Wonder Woman's sword was destroyed by Ares, she still held her own against the more powerful Old God. However, although she put up a considerable fight, Wonder Woman was ultimately fairly quickly defeated by the resurrected Superman, and was only saved by Lois Lane's timely intervention.
    • Master Swordswoman: Wonder Woman is an extremely skilled swordswoman, with centuries of experience wielding her magical god killer sword (and later the Sword of Athena) in many battles, including those of World War I. Thus, she managed to slash at enemy soldiers with her sword even while racing past on horseback, to instantly slice apart in mid-air a car hurled at her by Doomsday with the Sword of Athena, to later do the same to massive piece of debris hurled at her by resurrected Superman, and to sever one of Doomsday's arms during her mortal battle with the monster, delivering wounds that would have otherwise been lethal, had it not been for the monster's incredible healing factor and adaptive evolution.
    • Master Lassoer: Wonder Woman is extremely skilled at combatively wielding her unbreakable Lasso of Hestia, notably using it to stop an escaping German spy, to take down numerous German soldiers in World War I battles, to retrain a British terrorist leader, to restrain and defeat General Ludendorff, to hold her own against Ares after getting her sword destroyed, to restrain a resurrected Superman (albeit unsuccessfully), and to even restrain Doomsday himself.
    • Expert Archer: Wonder Woman, despite hardly ever using a bow and arrows in combat, is nonetheless highly skilled in utilizing them, having received elite archery training from her aunt Antiope.
  • Expert Rider: Wonder Woman, as an Amazon, is a highly skilled horseback rider, shown during her involvement in World War I battles.
  • Stealth: Wonder Woman, while not quite on par with Batman, is exceptionally stealthy, as she was able to quickly sneak away from Chief and Charlie (to General Ludendorff's gala), and later to steal the hacking device that Bruce Wayne had plugged into the LexCorp Industries servers, and later leave it in his car, without getting caught on either occasion. Later, Wonder Woman noticed Cyborg spying at her and Batman from a distance, and shortly thereafter, along with Batman and Cyborg, she was able to swiftly slip away when Commissioner Gordon turned away for a moment, and even Flash was left incredulous at how he didn't notice his teammates leave, despite having superhuman reflexes and standing right beside them. Wonder Woman even managed to enter the highly-secure Batcave itself on her own, impressing Batman.
  • Genius-Level Intellect: Wonder Woman is extremely intelligent, wise, well-read, perceptive, and sophisticated, primarily due to her tremendously long immortal lifespan, natural fluency in all human languages (even dead ones, like Latin, Ancient Greek, Sumerian, and Ottoman Turkish), her having read many books even while still on Themyscira, and her century of living in "Man's World" after World War I, all of which definitely makes Wonder Woman the wisest and most emotionally intelligent member of the Justice League, despite her having initially been naive, headstrong, and idealistic at the time of leaving Themyscira with Steve Trevor. As such, Wonder Woman has no issues blending in with high-class society of "Man's World", she held her own while verbally sparring with Batman (with the extremely experienced vigilante having trouble discerning her identity), she was the first to realize that Doomsday's adaptive healing factor was energy-based, and she was the only one on supergenius Lex Luthor's metahuman list to figure out that Lex was keeping tabs on her and had obtained a compromising photo of her with Steve Trevor (possibly due to her having been once been fooled by another deceitful supervillain, Ares). She also displays a keen understanding of technology and biomechatronics, shown when Wonder Woman uses the Batcomputer, remarks on Cyborg's Mother Box enhancements[6], and when she deduced that resurrecting Superman with a Mother Box might produce a monster, like Doomsday. Wonder Woman's intellectual genius extends itself to her combat, perceptiveness, stealth, arcane lore, and antiquities dealing skills.
    • Expert Antiquities Dealer: Wonder Woman, while in her guise as the human Diana Prince,

      Diana, speaking to a Gotham curator.

      is an extremely experienced genius antiquities dealer, with Diana's tremendously long immortal life and natural fluency in all human languages allowing her to accumulate an immense amount of knowledge on the subject, though (being an Amazon with Old God heritage) she seems to specialize most in ancient Greco-Roman antiques. Hence, Diana works as Curator for the Department of Antiquities[7] at the extremely prestigious Louvre Museum in France, and she is held in very high esteem by the curator of the Gotham City Museum of Antiquities, being swiftly able to tell that the museum's exhibit of Alexander the Great's sword was a fake, knowing exactly where the actual sword is, impressing Batman himself.
    • Omnilingualism: Wonder Woman, as an Amazon, has the ability to fluently speak, read, and understand all human languages (even currently dead ones, which allows her to surpass even a polyglot like Sameer), as well as to instinctively identify a language's name when seeing it's written form (doing so when seeing Dr. Poison's notes on hydrogen-based mustard gas). Wonder Woman has so far been known to speak or read English (albeit with a mild Middle Eastern accent), French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Mandarin, Chinese, Sumerian, Ancient Greek, Latin, and Ottoman Turkish, thus making her the most polyglottic member of the Justice League.
  • Indomitable Will: Wonder Woman has tremendous determination and strength of will, since she refuses to ever hunker down and give up, even when placed against seemingly insurmountable odds. Hence, despite the Germans invading Themyscira having far superior firepower, despite the extreme danger of German firepower in-between World War I trenches, despite having to fight the stronger and seeming unstoppable Doomsday, despite having to battle the mighty Ares right after witnessing Steve Trevor's death, Wonder Woman promptly rose up, overcame her negative emotions, and kept on fighting, persisting until she eventually managed to gain the upper hand. Indeed, her indomitable spirit gave a renewed hope to the Wonder Men, 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 Olympians, 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. 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 seemingly beaten by Ares (who was only growing more powerful from her violence, rage, and hatred) and overcome by the weight of Ares' words and the devastation of Steve's death, Wonder Woman recalled his great love for and undying belief in her, and was thereby able to muster up enough willpower and love to overcome her violent emotions and overpower Ares. While mostly stepping away from superheroism for 100 years (emotionally crippled at her inability to save the Belgian villagers or Steve, and by seeing the ensuing "century of horrors"), Wonder Woman didn't entirely lose hope, and it was fully reignited again when she witnessed the self-sacrificing death of another selfless superhero, Superman (who combined the phenomenal godly might of Ares with the self-sacrificing morality of Steve Trevor), giving her enough faith to help Batman found the Justice League. During the 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.

Equipment

REB WONDERWOMAN

Diana wearing her battle armor.

  • Amazon warrior armor: Wonder Woman's Amazonian combat armor, which helps compensate for any possible vulnerability to sharp bullets.
  • General Antiope's tiara: Wonder Woman would wear it in loving memory of her beloved aunt and mentor Antiope, with Diana striving to be worthy of it, as the tiara signifies that it's wearer is the greatest Amazon warrior of them all.

Weapons

  • Lasso of Hestia: Wonder Woman's specialized completely unbreakable weapon, with the ability to force anyone it captures to obey the lasso's wielder and tell the truth. She successfully wielded it against Steve Trevor (in order to get the experienced spy to tell her the truth), General Ludendorff (in order to half his escape and kill him), Ares (in order to keep up with the violent God of War in battle), Doomsday (in order to temporarily restrain him, while Batman weakened him, and Superman delivered the finishing blow), and resurrected Superman (in order to restrain him until the post-mortem amnesia wore off).
Wonder Woman holds up her gauntlets

Wonder Woman's Bracelets of Submission.

  • Bracelets of Submission: Wonder Woman wears two specialized nigh-indestructible gauntlets, in order to compensate for her vulnerability to sharp objects and bullets. They are incredibly durable, capable of deflecting even Ares' humongous torrents of lightning, and Doomsday's tremendously powerful and destructive thermal attack, while also having the ability to create a massive wave of energy outwards when clashed together.
  • Amazon shield: Wonder Woman's Amazonian shield, which she uses to protect herself from other weapons and energy blasts (in tandem with her bracelets). Much like her bracelets, it is nigh-indestructible, capable of deflecting even humongous torrents of lightning from Ares and tremendously powerful and destructive thermal attacks from the monster Doomsday. It can also be used as an offensive weapon, with Wonder Woman smashing it hard into the legs of Doomsday, thus momentarily managing to knock him down.
  • Sword of Athena: Wonder Woman's second sword, replacing the god killer, with the Sword of Athena being equivalently powerful, one of the few weapons that can actually injure the otherwise invulnerable Superman and Doomsday.

Formely Equipment

  • God killer: Wonder Woman's extremely sharp and durable sword forged in Themyscira, that she wielded in battle during World War I. However, the god killer was ultimately destroyed by Ares. Due to its nature, the god killer would very likely have been able to injure otherwise invulnerable beings, like Superman and Doomsday, had it still been in existence, however, this was never demonstrated.
  • Glasess: Wonder Woman's pair of glasses, which she donned when attempting to conceal her identity and pose as a human (much like Superman) during World War I, but they break during a battle with General Ludendorff's spies.

Behind the scenes

Trivia

  • Initially, being over 5,000 years old, she is the oldest member of the Justice League. However, it has been confirmed that she is 800 years old.
  • After the Man of Steel, Wonder Woman is the strongest and overall the most powerful member of the Justice League. Also, Diana has no exploitable weaknesses like Supermans' vulnerability to Kryptonite and/or magic.
  • She is currently the only female member of the Justice League.
  • Aside from her comic counterpart, Wonder Woman of the cinematic DCEU, does not fly, yet. Or that we know of. Rather she can levitate as well as leap at tremendous heights and distances. At the end of the film Wonder Woman, it appears that levitation aids her when she jumps great distances.
  • In the film, during the scene where Diana tries ice cream for the first time in the train station (and enjoys it) possibly alludes to Wonder Woman doing the same (albeit in the street) in Justice League Vol. 2 #3 in the New 52. [8][9]
  • Diana is right-handed.
  • In all three films Diana has been in, she is never referred to as "Wonder Woman". Likewise, the alias isn't seen anywhere in print either. The closest it's come is the logo used in Lex Luthor's data, being two "W"s. Likewise, Bruce Wayne is only called "Batman" three times in the run of the DCEU. Once by Perry White, once by Barry Allen, and once by Aquaman.
