* AbandonedCatchphrase: In the old days, Wonder Woman would say "Suffering Sappho!" This was writer Charles Moulton's tongue-in-cheek TakeThat to MoralGuardians who claimed she was secretly a lesbian, and it fell out of use when Moulton left the book. She had about a half dozen similar exclamations that lasted her throughout the Silver Age, though, including "Great Hera!", "Thunderbolts of Jove!", "Neptune's Trident!", and "Shades of Pluto!" Nowadays she is more likely to say "Great Hera!" or "Holy Hera!"



** BiTheWay: Issue 2 of Wonder Woman Comics/DCRebirth implies Diana was The Casanova during her life on Paradise Island. (Or to be more accurate, some gossiping Amazons speculate that she is.) It is canonized that she was closer than friends with at least one peer.



* BattleCouple[=/=]GodCouple: With Superman as of the ComicBook/{{New 52}}.

Added DiffLines:

* SadlyMythtaken: A large part of Hercules' AdaptationalVillainy comes from changes in the myth of his ninth labor which was to retrive Hippolyta's girdle. In myth, Hercules and Hippolyta got along until Hera instigated the Amazons into attacking leading him to kill Hippolyta in the battle. In the Pre-Crisis and Post-Crisis, Ares convinces Hercules into attacking the Amazons leading to the bad blood between the Amazons and him.

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero[=/=]PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Has been both. He's not a woman ''hater'' like some of Wonder Woman's adversaries, but he does display a large degree of casual and ingrained disrespect for the female gender.

* AllLovingHero: Pre-Nu52, it was emphasized in her Blackest Night tie in, where even decapitating an enemy, the only emotion within her was love. In the Nu-52, where Diana is a much harder person, she still tells Hades that she really did love him after the forced marriage deal he put her through, because:

* KilledOffForReal: The original Angle Man died in the first "Crisis", apparently as a result of attempting to use his Angler during the massive dimensional upheavals caused by that event.



%%* VillainousCrush: On Donna Troy

%%* * VillainousCrush: On He was caught by Donna Troy
Troy while trying to steal an ancient artifact from a museum. Despite this, Angle Man formed a bit of a crush on the Amazon. He became so enamored with her that he instinctively transported himself to Themyscira seeking Donna's help when he was savagely attacked by a Fury possessed Barbara Minerva.

* IWantGrandkids: Occasionally shows this inclination around Diana.

* IWantGrandkids: Occasionally shows this inclination around Diana. Especally when Diana was in a relationship with Nemesis.



* MamaBear: When she's written right.

to:

* MamaBear: When she's written right. [[spoiler: She presented a deconstruction of the trope when she manipulated Wonder Woman into giving up her title and sacrificing an unknowing Artemis to prevent a prophecy about her daughter's death as Wonder Woman from coming true.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ParentsAsPeople: She was very obstinate when asked to give up the mantle of Wonder Woman by her daughter since she enjoyed the freedom and adventure that she experienced and wanted to follow her dreams instead of being tied down as a queen and mother.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: In the Comicbook/{{New 52}} none of the gods wear shoes, not even Apollo, who otherwise wears a suit.

** In the Comicbook/{{New 52}} after helping Diana rescue Zola's baby he leaves, making it seem like he had kidnapped the kid for his own purposes, but it turns out he went straight back to Zola and to give the kid back.
* PragmaticVillainy: With a little help from Wonder Woman, he realized that, thanks to nukes, starting WorldWarIII would destroy the world and leave no one left to fight his wars.

He eventually focused his efforts to becoming the ''God of Conflict'', making him more powerful and more dangerous than before.

* AesopAmnesia: He never learns from a lesson in benevolence for long, and is quit to revert right back to his jerkass self in his next appearance.



* EverybodyHatesHades: Notably averted; in contrast to his Marvel counterpart [[Character/TheIncredibleHercules Pluto]], DC's Hades is sometimes despicted as morally ambiguous and [[TheDreaded feared by mortals]], but rarely as truly malevolent and almost never as a SatanicArchetype, since that role usually goes to [[WarIsHell Ares]]. Also wonderfully deconstructed in the New 52 Universe. [[spoiler: Hades hates himself more than anyone hates him, and more or less sabotages his relationships and alliances as a result.]]

* {{Jerkass}}: He was less than impressed when he first met 'Dianas new conquest' in Kal-El, stating he wasnt even human; just some thing who came from the stars, even going so far as to insult her par of choice by not caring for whom she sluts around with. When Superman called him out on being a dick to his girlfriend he even smacked him into Hephaestus' forge.

* {{Foil}}: Oddly enough, to Wonder Woman of all people. She even lampshades this fact when she states while both posses a broiling fire within; Diana clarifies her torch flame aspires to inspire undying love for any and all things, while the First Born's Firepit seeks only to consume and destroy whatever comes in contact with it.

* StrawNihilist: due to the utter dickishness of his own father and being left to die in the middle of a harsh Sahara environment surrounded by predators. The First Born grew into an apathetic, abysmal and utterly amoral mindset that life was cruelty and decadents which only served to eat itself out of existence in the long run. Putting it simply, not only were abstracts such as love, compassion, kindness and all around common decency foreign to him; but he was so utterly warped and twisted that he rebuffed such notions as a platitudinous redundancy.
