The Amazons

"We are indeed a race of wonder women."

(Pre-Crisis)Women from across the annals of history who ended up at Paradise Island by chance or when fleeing opressors and chose to become Amazons and remain there. By taking the oath and going through the ceremony and training to become an Amazon they gained abilities far beyond the means of normal humans and are immortal while on their home island.

(Post-Crisis)Reincarnations of murdered women given incredible strength, the Amazons were created and charged by the Gods to lead Ancient Greece into a better way of life through love and peace. Unfortunately, when the Amazons were captured and violated by Heracles' tribe of warrior men, they grew vengeful in their payback despite being to do otherwise. The Amazons divided themselves in two after the leaders of both halves disagreed on whether to further take vengeance on the males that humiliated them. As punishment, the Gods charged the Amazons under Hippolyta's command to keep guard of the demon Cottus on Themyscira as restitution. The Amazons are a race of warrior women, but they are very diverse and generally compassionate. The Egyptian sect, the Bana-Mighdall who defected and were led by the Amazon Antiope, was much more misandrist and kill-happy. Now that the Amazons are free from Cottus, they act as their own sovereign nation.

First Appearance: All-Star Comics #8. (1941)
Created By: William Moulton Marston · Harry G. Peter

  • Ambiguously Gay: Some (Io) more than others.
    • Nothing ambiguous about it, it's (now) canon that the majority if not all of the Amazons are either lesbian or bisexual and that Io was in love with Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman's own bisexuality has only been hinted at though, at least so far
  • Aerith and Bob: In the Pre-Crisis continuity the Amazons of Paradise Island were women from throughout history who had come to the island seeking refuge and chose to become Amazons and uphold their peaceful protective so their names were incredibly varied, including Althea, Diana, Fatsis, Gerta, Hippolyta, Mala, Metala, Orana and Zoe.
  • Cerebus Retcon: Under DC Rebirth, the New 52 versions of the Amazons and Hippolyta have been revealed as fakes created as part of some elaborate attempt to rewrite Diana's past.
  • Darker and Edgier: The New 52 Amazon society seemed far cruder and rougher than past versions, and they propagated throughout the centuries by kidnapping and raping sailors. The Amazons would dispose of any infants unlucky enough to be born male. Indeed this is darker than one version of the original mythology where their husbands were just in a neighboring country.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: As lampshaded by Wonder Woman, since their existence the Amazons have made mistake after mistake which inevitably caused them to fail in their mission of bringing peace to the world. When they were first created, they decided to cloister themselves away after becoming disgusted with the violence of men despite their whole existence being to show them the ways of peace and love. After the Amazon Queen allowed Heracles and his men into their kingdom and his eventual rapacious betrayal of their nation, they chose to kill their oppressors in a rage despite being explicitly told by the Gods who created and freed them not to do so. Then after splitting up and eventually being tasked to guard Cottus, they chose to build their island into a utopia for themselves and completely abandoned their mission for centuries.
  • Lady Land: Whether men are even allowed on the island is a question that is answered in different ways over the years. (The typical answer is "No, unless Wonder Woman invites them". Also, there are occasional jokes about what the Amazons do for fun on an island inhabited only by women...
  • Proud Scholar Race Guy: (Pre-Crisis) The Amazons of Paradise Island often came off this way. They had developed a range of impressive tech including having their own space worthy fleet before any other nation on earth had made it into orbit, invisible aircraft and incredible medical advances but generally didn't share any of these advances with their supposed allied nations like the United States.
  • Proud Warrior Race Girl: (Post-Crisis) The Bana tribe, who are far more combative than their Themysciran sisters, place a lot of emphasis and pride on their skills as warriors.
  • Public Domain Character: The Amazons (not specific Amazons) and their queen Hippolyta are all Older Than Feudalism.
  • Rape as Backstory: Post-Crisis Perez made this part of the backstory of all the Amazons besides Wondy who was born later; they were made sex slaves by Hercules and his men and only received Themyscira after they fought their way free, with the caveat that they couldn't seek revenge and had to swear themselves to a lifestyle of peace to get their safehaven.
  • Straw Feminist: In a few stories, much to the annoyance of the fans... don't even mention Amazons Attack!.

    Donna Troy / Wonder Girl I / Wonder Woman IV 
Wonder Girl I / Troia / Wonder Woman IV
Donna as Troia
AKA: Donna Troy

Donna Troy's past is... complicated. But basically, she's Diana's sister. She is known for being a sweet woman and a good listener, but she's faced much tragedy and a tangled past in her life. She was originally Wonder Girl of the Teen Titans, and now she forges her own path as simply Donna Troy. Comes equipped with the same bracelets as her sister, and a lasso that can override the mind of its victim, provided that Donna's will is stronger than their own.

    Queen Hippolyta / Masquerader / Wonder Woman III 
Hippolyta / Wonder Woman III
The Queen of the Amazons always longed for a child, because out of the Amazons, it was she who was reincarnated from a pregnant woman. In reward for her service and leadership, the Gods gifted her with Diana. Hippolyta is a stern leader, but she is also a nurturer who loves her daughter.

First Appearance: All-Star Comics #8. (1941)
Created By: William Moulton Marston · Harry G. Peter

  • Action Mom: Never mind the fact that Diana is an adult...
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Was originally black-haired like her daughter in the Golden Age, then blonde after the Silver Age reboot in the 1950's, then became black-haired again after the Crisis on Infinite Earths reboot in the 1980s, went back to blonde again after the New 52 reboot, then returned to black in Rebirth. Was blonde in Justice League but dark-haired in the direct-to-video movie.
  • An Axe to Grind: Most often uses a great axe in battle.
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: In her case she was attracted to Hercules himself before he betrayed her and turned her and her people into sex slaves. When Hercules was initially redeemed and had a Heel–Face Turn, she expressed that she still had attraction for him despite everything he did to her and gave him a kiss before Hercules left for Olympus. Also, when she was in the JSA, Ted Grant, pretty much the embodiment of the gruff masculinity of his time. In the New 52 she slept with The King of the Gods, Zeus, though these versions of Hippolyta and Zeus were later revealed as fakes.
  • The Atoner: Hippolyta's stint as her daughter's replacement was part of her penance for inadvertently causing Diana's death in the first place. (She had an Amazon sorceress cast a spell to transfer some of Diana's power to Artemis, and never had the spell reversed.) She later started to enjoy the role. She becomes one again after the Amazons Attack!, where she is punished for her hand in the death of thousands in Washington D.C., and is punished to serve alone on Themyscira as it's only resident as penance and to rebuilt Amazon culture from the ground up.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: She is the queen of the Amazons, so you have to expect she'd be just as badass as the others.
  • Ax-Crazy: When she's written badly or lets her wrathful temper get the best of her, most famously in Amazons Attack!. It's noted during her tenure as Wonder Woman when she fought with only a sword instead of a lasso and was described as more conscientious, less warlike, and considerate of civilians than Artemis, but less pacifistic and merciful than Diana considering she had no code against killing and didn’t think twice about chopping off a man’s arm to disarm him.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Though it depends on the writer. Her past usually consists of being a Sex Slave.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Has shown she's not afraid to mouth off to the Olympians,such as Zeus, when it comes to her daughter.
  • Good Parents: When written right, Hippolyta is a caring, supportive mother to Diana.
  • The High Queen: The ruler of Themiscyra, who's held in awe.
  • It's All About Me: She can come off with this attitude when she gives demands, especially when she shirked her duties as Queen of Themyscira during her stint as Wonder Woman and derided any opposition to her choices which put her kingdom into an upcoming civil war.
  • I Want Grandkids: Occasionally shows this inclination around Diana. Especially when Diana was in a relationship with Nemesis. Granted, this was during a time when Diana and Hippolyta were the only two Amazons left which strongly influenced how they were thinking. And of course, Hippolyta was so desperate for a daughter that she moved the gods into miraculously creating Diana.
  • Lady of War: No matter what iteration of Polly is in play her past is always as a graceful but brutally dangerous leader of a people who fought in many wars during the Bronze Age.
  • The Leader: Hippolyta was a born leader and strategist and is excellent in the arts of persuasion and diplomacy.
  • Legacy Character: After Diana died and ascended to godhood, Hippolyta became Wonder Woman in her place. She traveled back in time to fight alongside the Justice Society, long before Diana's time, making her kind of the first Wonder Woman and making Diana a legacy heroine herself. This idea was ignored by subsequent writers and done away with when DC rebooted its history during the New 52.
  • Mama Bear: When she's written right. She presented a deconstruction of the trope when she manipulated Wonder Woman into giving up her title and sacrificing an unknowing and loyal Artemis to prevent a prophecy about her daughter's death as Wonder Woman from coming true.
  • Minidress of Power: She was depicted as the Golden Age Wonder Woman in some modern stories starting with Wonder Woman (1987), and "returning" to the role. She usually was depicted wearing a skirt.
  • Parents as People: 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. It became so extreme she forced the position of rulers unto her daughters so she could continue playing the superhero, despite being consistently warned her own kingdom was approaching civil war and unrest without firm leadership.
  • Royal Inbreeding: Her father Ares is obviously the result of some since his parents are Zeus and Hera, who are brother and sister. In the New 52 Hippolyta decides to join in the family tradition by screwing her grandfather Zeus, a relationship that results in Diana.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She isn't above getting her hands dirty (and, in one bit of comics continuity, was Wonder Woman during World War II).
  • Stable Time Loop: It is later revealed in the Secret Files of the pre-52 Post-Crisis Wonder Woman series that Hippolyta's punishment to serve as Wonder Woman after her hand in her daughter's death actually caused her to be sent back in time in the 1940s to serve as the first Wonder Woman, which inspired Steve Trevor's mother to start her flight which led her to fight and die on Themyscira culminating in her American colors being used for Wonder Woman's costume, inspired Steve Trevor to become a pilot and land on Themyscira in the first place, and start the events that would lead to her daughter becoming Wonder Woman in the first place. Hippolyta's tenure also inspired the legacy of Wonder Girl by first inspiring Donna and Cassandra to bear the title. Chronologically speaking, Hippolyta kicked off the entire Wonder Woman legacy.
  • Sex Slave: In her backstory she was once enslaved by the demi-god Heracles (sent by Ares in his war against Athena) along with her people for his sexual desires. Athena freed Hippolyta on the condition that she would not seek revenge, but Heracles escaped anyway.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Diana gets her looks from her.
  • Truly Single Parent: In most continuities Hippolyta created Diana with her own artistry and love, though an argument could be made for Aphrodite being Diana's second bio-mother as Hippolyta could not have brought Diana to life without the goddess.

    Artemis / Wonder Woman II / Requiem 
Artemis / Wonder Woman II / Requiem / Orana
Artemis was raised by the Bana-Mighdall, a rough and misandrist Egyptian sect of Amazons. She briefly took Diana's place as Wonder Woman, and was promptly killed. She got better, and despite her disdain towards men and warrior attitude, she's become a close and loyal ally of Diana's and a true hero. She eventually becomes one of two leaders of Themyscrira alongside Philippus as the Polemarch (military leader).

The Amazon Guard Captain, military leader of Themyscira, and Hippolyta's lover. Something of a second mother to the Princess, Philippus took an active role in raising Diana, most notably teaching her an early lesson in using one's wits instead of strength alone. Eventually becomes one of the two leaders of Themyscira alongside Artemis as both Chancellor and Archon Eponymous (head of civic affairs).

  • Determinator: Getting an arrow through the chest doesn't stop her from saving her Queen from The Circle's treachery.
  • Dreadlock Warrior: Most often seen with dreads.
  • The Good Chancellor: Eventually becomes one of two joint leaders of Themyscira after Hippolyta steps down and dissolves the monarchy.
  • Interservice Rivalry: Head of the General Guard, harbored (warranted) suspicions toward Hippolyta's personal bodyguards, The Circle.
  • Lady of War: Not quite as regal or graceful as Hippolyta, but still shows shades of this as a consummate warrior woman.
  • Legacy Character: In many adaptations, such as Kingdom Come, when Diana steps down from the Wonder Woman mantle, Phillipus is the one to become the heroine.
  • Like a Daughter to Me: Phillppus took an active role in raising Diana, essentially serving as a second mother to her.
  • The Captain: Her role as Hippolyta's general.
  • Retgone: Post-Flashpoint, Philippus was erased from the DCU and seemingly replaced by a similar looking Amazon named Dessa. Post-Rebirth, it's revealed Philippus is still an Amazon and was actually living on the real version of Themyscira alongside Hippolyta, whom she is now in a physical relationship with.
  • The Rival: To the much more dangerous captain of the guard Alkyone, whose radical views led her to attempt to murder Diana.
  • Serious Business: Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman shows Philippus treating organizing a party like a military operation, shouting orders and directing Amazons as though the situation is far more serious than it is. She still finds time to flirt with Hippolyta, who finds the whole thing endearing.
  • Token Black: Not the only black Amazon, but is the only one with any significant paneltime.


High Priestess and oracle of the Amazons. Frequently predicts disaster and very rarely foresees any good news. Menalippe is one of Wonder Woman's three maternal aunts.

Created By: Greg Potter · George Pérez
Universes: New Earth, Prime Earth, DCEU,The Legend of Wonder Woman

  • Crisis of Faith: Of all the Amazons, it is she who most deeply worries that the gods may have forsaken them. Fortunately, they haven't.
  • Death by Adaptation: Her post-Flashpoint version is killed as soon as she's introduced by an Amazon who bore a child of Darkseid's.
  • Dumb Blonde: She's not the sharpest tool in the shed...
  • Fainting Seer: Sudden onset visions have a tendency to knock her out.
  • High Priestess: She is the High Priestess of the Amazons who worship the Greek pantheon and is in particular dedicated to Apollo who has granted her powers as a seer.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Gives her life to save Hippolyta from Circe's attack during War of the Gods.
  • Infallible Babble: Sometimes. Accompanied by Throat Light and Glowing Eyes of Doom.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Same as her girlfriend, Penelope.
  • Mad Oracle: Seeing the future is not good for her sanity.
  • Mystical Waif: Oddly scrawny for an Amazon, and gifted with magical powers.
  • Public Domain Character: Menalippe is an Amazon from mythology, sister to Hippolyta, Penthesilea and Antiope who in the original myths was taken hostage by Hercules to force Hippolyta to give up her girdle.
  • Waif Prophet: Quite scrawny for an Amazon and their oracle.

No! I won't build it, don't ask me! We are Amazons, we are sworn to peace! It is a betrayal of everything we stand for, everything we believe!"
Io, Wonder Woman Vol 2

An Amazon blacksmith with a huge crush on Diana.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman (Vol 2) #196. (2003)
Created By: Greg Rucka · Dave Johnson
Universes: New Earth, Prime Earth

  • All Love Is Unrequited: She's got it bad for the princess. Diana seems to notice, but simply isn't interested.
  • The Blacksmith: She is the premier blacksmith on Themyscira, and is even addressed as "Blacksmith" by Ares.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: She'd like to confess her feelings to the princess, but she's too nervous to do it.
  • Drop the Hammer: While she's used swords in fights, most remarkably when she garnered some goodwill with Ares when she surprised him with a stab wound from a blade he himself had blessed, she's more often got a hammer on hand.
  • Forging Scene: Creates a suit of armor for her princess.
  • Gentle Giant: Huge even for an Amazon, but she's a total sweetheart.
  • It's What I Do: During a time where the gods forbade the presence of weapons on Paradise Island, Io persisted in crafting blades knowing they would instantly disappear upon completion. Why? Because it's her job.
  • My Greatest Failure: Io is devastated when Ares easily defeats her and takes Lyta.
  • Parental Substitute: She took responsibility for raising and protecting Lyta Milton, the daughter of Ares and Circe, and the girl very understandably prefers Io to her own mother and has a meltdown when she thinks her father killed Io.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: It pains Io to watch Diana go off to face Medousa.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's fairly shy and reserved.

One of the earliest Amazons and an excellent warrior. Her resistance to change and support of their isolationist policies is taken advantage of by an enemy who posed as a friend and convinced Aella to attack the Bana.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman (Vol 2) #1. (1987)

Universes: New Earth, Prime Earth, DCEU

  • 24-Hour Armor: Aella is pretty much always wearing at least some of her armor and is never seen without it.
  • Character Death: She is killed in the battle she started against the Bana.
  • Conflict Ball: While she might have voiced concerns about such things as Themyscira rejoining the world stage she accepted the vote without hesitation and was not even implied to be one of the few who voted against it. That she was so opposed to the Bana being on the island after being alright if wary of welcoming others is quite the stretch.
  • Lady Legionnaire Wear: Her armor includes three-tiered pteruges, which actually reach the tops of her knees and are worn over other clothes like proper historical pteruges.
  • Parrot Pet Position: Her falcon is usually found perched on her shoulder.

Antiope / Alcippe

Hippolyta's sister, Diana aunt, who took a bit more after their father Ares than did Hippolyta. In the Post-Crisis (New Earth) continuity she lead a contingent of Amazons to found their own city state in protest over the gods punishing their people for defending themselves agains Hercules and his men, and thus lost her immortality.
The New 52 makes Antiope Hippolyta's mother.

Akila is the Shim'Tar—chosen champion—of the Bana-Mighdall Amazons after their society rejoins the Amazons of Themyscira and starts adapting to be a bit less horrifically and murderously misandrist. Prior to becoming the Shim'Tar she spent a lot of time sneaking away to study and is far more interested in scholarship than the art of being a warrior, which makes her very different from the average Bana Amazon.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman (Vol 2) Annual #8. (1999)
Created By: Doselle Young · Brian Denham
Universes: New Earth, Prime Earth

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In DC Rebirth her Shim'Tar uniform becomes primarily teal, and loses its practical armor components.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: Originally an intellectual pacifist, Rebirth sees Akila reimagined as a warrior rival of Artemis turned villain.
  • Adaptational Skimpiness: While the Shim'Tar armor always showed way more leg than necessary in Rebirth it lost the signature helmet, and added a bare back, shoulders and arms to the deal, the better for ridiculously sexed up poses while fighting.
  • Breast Plate: Prior to Flashpoint her armor was cut impractically low and molded around her breasts when drawn by most artists. It also didn't provide any protection for her upper legs. In Rebirth her "armor" is not drawn to resemble armor at all, looking more like a tight halter-top swimsuit.
  • Death by Adaptation: Rebirth have the character go mad with power and get killed by her best friend, then come back and get killed deader than dead, while her pre-Flashpoint self was alive and well and trying to lead her people to be more tolerant and kind.
  • Meaningful Name: Her name means "intelligent" in Arabic. Fitting for one who prefers scholarly pursuits over battle.
  • Race Lift: She's always been from Egypt and prior to Flashpoint was usually drawn looking Middle Eastern, while in Rebirth she drawn with Sub-Saharan heritage.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Prior to Flashpoint she was a scholar who wore reading glasses.
  • Voice of Reason: While she is also called on to fight as their champion one of the main reasons she was chosen as Shim'Tar was to act as a voice of reason for her proud warrior people, who tend to jump to more violent solutions to problems.
  • White Sheep: (Pre-Flashpoint) The reason she was chosen as Shim'Tar is part of the promise for the future of the Bana-Mighdall as a more peaceful culture.

  • Dr. Jerk: Carrisa is well known for her sharp tongue and judgmental nature.
  • The Medic: She's usually the one Diana and the other Amazons turn to when they need to get patched up after Epione's mysterious unaddressed vanishing from the books.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Killed in the OMAC attack on Themyscira to prove just how dangerous the things are, even to the Amazons.

  • Bling of War: Like most Amazon warriors Euboea has had centuries to refine and modify her kit, and hers is gold plated with delicate etchings and other decor with a red cape and a red plume on the helmet.
  • Cool Helmet: Her helmet is pretty unique as Amazon helmets go, since she's added short horns reminiscent of Ares' own dark helm.
  • Iconic Item: Euboea is never seen without her headband, though colorists can't seem to decide if it's yellow or orange.
  • Token Minority: Euboea is usually the only Amazon with East-Asian features, and is definitely the only one with a name and repeat appearances.

The Amazons' chief physician, and one of the first gay characters in comics to be fully out and in a committed and happy relationship.

  • Meaningful Name: Epione's name means soothing, and she is named after the goddess of the soothing of pain.
  • The Medic: She does most of the patching up of Diana and the rest of the Amazons.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Near the end of Wonder Woman (1987) her position was filled by Carrisa and Epione disappeared without explanation.


Mala is a competitive and athletic Amazon who has competed every time there is a competition to see which Amazon will represent their people in the outside world. She has come in second to Diana every time but holds no resentment towards the princess and is supportive of her mission.

  • Always Second Best: While she usually leads the competition through some sections, actually outperforming Diana, she always comes in second in the end. Except when Artemis competed which pushed Mala even further back in the field of competitors.
  • Badass in Distress: She's been captured before, but this doesn't work out well for her captors as Mala is even stronger and more skilled than the average stronger than human well trained Amazon.
  • Childhood Friends: (Golden-Age) Mala and Diana were some of the very few children on Paradise Island when they were growing up and became fast friends who've been fiercely competitive with each other since they were quite young.
  • Deprogram: (Golden-Age) The poor women Paula von Gunther brainwashed into her enslaved operatives were taken to Reformation Island in order for Mala to oversee trying to make them functional on their own again, and capable of making their own choices and such. Her efforts are shown to be partially successful.
  • Hair of Gold: A competitor who enjoys seeing her competition win and is completely supportive of them.

  • Badass Teacher: She's an Amazon who has spent centuries honing her craft as both a historian and warrior.
  • Depending on the Artist: Mnemosyne has been drawn as a blonde and a brunette.
  • Everything's Sparkly with Jewelry: The effect is sometimes a bit ruined in the coloring stage as her rings often end up the same color as her skin but she wears more jewelry than most Amazons, including multiple rings and a silver headband.
  • Meaningful Name: She is named after the Titan mother of memory, who later became a supporting character to Donna Troy.
  • Milking the Giant Cow: She makes a lot of gestures with her hands during her speeches and proclamations.
  • One Steve Limit: She's not only named after Mnemosyne the Titan she even calls herself the "mother of memory" at one point, which is the Titan's title.

    Nubia / Nu'bia 
Nubia/Nu'bia/Wonder Woman of the Floating Isle/Carolyn Hamilton
Originally envisioned as Wonder Woman's twin sister, formed through the same methods and at the same time as Diana but stolen as an infant by Ares and raised to oppose her Themysciran sisters. Subsequent re-imaginings have varied significantly and on Earth 23 she is Wonder Woman.

In the New Earth continuity Nu'bia is the guardian of Doom's Doorway and vary rarely sees her Themysciran fellows as she has spent decades rigorously guarding the door from its far side.

  • Breast Plate: Her original costume was a fully covering suit of armor, though the breasts were impractically molded to her form. Her subsequent costumes and armor tend to cover as much or less than a bathing suit and iether have a random hole over her stomach or have the metal there be so tightly molded to her that it's astounding she can breath or move at all.
  • Changeling Tale: (Earth-One) She was stolen by Ares rather than the fey, and not replaced, but her tale remains the same. Taken from her family and raised as something she's not, only to learn as an adult she's actually an Amazon and has a twin sister.
  • Separated at Birth: She and Diana are "twins" born at the same time from the same no-biodad process, despite their very different appearances, but they did not meet each other until adulthood.
  • Wonder Child: (Earth-One) Desiring a child a queen was instructed to mold two infants out of clay, and then these children were given life by a quartet of goddesses and a god.

  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: She has sub-Saharan features and dark red hair. It doesn't appear to be her natural color as when she starts covering her hair after accepting that Themyscira will no longer continue to be a hidden isolationist city state the fringes are black.
  • Does Not Like Men: She doesn't necessarily hate men, but she's been victimized at the hands of too many men to ever trust one again and is distraught at the mere idea of having to see any on Themyscira.
  • Rape as Backstory: While Perez made this the case for all the Amazons she is in particular driven by her memory of the event and wanting to avoid any possibility of it ever happening again.

It's true I'm an architect [...] but my area of expertise is in the design of individual buildings, where I try for simple harmony and symmetry. Themyscira's city planner was Consivia, and she perished long ago, defending Doom's Doorway.

    Steve Trevor 
Lt. Steve Trevor

Pre-Crisis, Steve was Diana's love interest, and Diana decided to stay in America after delivering him back from crashing near her island. After years of dodging his advances (she'd only marry him when she got rid of all evil in the world, y'see) she eventually did get married to him.
Post-Crisis, Steve crash landed on Themyscira thanks to the machinations of Ares, and when Diana's mission was both to go to America to fight Ares, and deliver Steve to the hospital. Though initially distrustful, she struck up a close friendship with the older man, and he came to regard her as like a sister.

  • Chained to a Rock: In Sensation Comics 39 Roberta "Bobby" Strong and Glamora Treat are bound hand and foot to stone pillars to be killed and devoured by hungry tigers.
  • The Driver: As one of the few Holliday Girls with a car she ends up driving it crammed full of her fellow club members.
  • Girly Bruiser: Glamora is demure, fashion conscious and highly aware of any attractive males near her. She also gleefully and eagerly joins on dangerous expeditions, is a crack shot with a rifle, can do a lot of damage with a spear, has trained in Amazonian martial arts and loves beating up Nazis.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: She and Bobby are quite into good looking boys, and Diana is concerned when they go on a mission with Steve Trevor that they're going to spend the whole time distracting him with their flirtations. Etta is nearly out of patience with listening to them go on about the various young men who they've gotten or plan to their paws on.
  • Meaningful Name: Glamora is rather into being glamorous, wearing makeup and jewelry even on an expedition to an uncharted island.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Glamora Treat is the girly girl to her best pal Bobby Strong, another of the Holliday Girls. Glamora is demure and fashion conscious, Bobby is rough and tumble and loves to go hunting. They're both excellent fighters, crack shots with a riffle and a bit boy crazy.

  • Bring It: When brought before a fellow who fancies himself a modern Roman emperor who wants her to serve him or be fed to beasts she retorts "Any beast is a gentleman compared with you, you fat slob!" and when surrounded by foes who are hesitating to attack merrily tells them to "Come an inch nearer" so she can let them have it.
  • Chained to a Rock: In Sensation Comics 39 Bobby and Glamora are bound hand and foot to stone pillars to be killed and devoured by hungry tigers. Bobby's reaction is to roll her eyes and basically say bring it.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": "Bobby" does not at all like to be called a "lady". Rather than just asking people not to call her such she'll argue that she is not one especially since men like to try to use it as an excuse to exclude and constrain her.
  • I Have Brothers: Bobby will sometimes resort to explaining she's gone on safari and gone hunting with her older brothers as an explanation for why she's a viable candidate for adventurous outings if her own abilities and explanation of her skills isn't enough to convince those in charge. This often works better for her than explaining that she has been trained in martial arts by Wonder Woman and has defeated numerous Nazis herself.

First Appearance: Sensation Comics #43. (1945)
Created By: Joye Murchison · Harry G. Peter

  • Coordinated Clothes: The girls wear matching clothes most of the time in order to switch easily with each other, though they're all wearing different colored similar dresses for a masquerade.
  • Dumb Blonde: Lillie and Millie are acknowledged to be reckless, foolish, and dangerously impulsive to the point that their grandmother leaves her estate only to the one of them who doesn't fit here as she feels Tillie will take care of her sisters with the money and that the other two will be better off that way than if she'd actually given them the money themselves.
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: Lillie and Millie regularly finish each other's sentences, and Tillie occasionally does the same but usually only with things they've practiced.
  • In-Series Nickname: Those Terrible Triplets
  • Raised by Grandparents: The Heyday triplets were raised by their grandmother after their parents' deaths.
  • Same-Sex Triplets: Identical triplet girls.
  • Single-Minded Twins: The Heyday triplets play with this trope. The three are identical, wear matching outfits and get a kick of pulling twin switches, but only Lillie and Millie really act as one, to the point of speaking in unison, having the same phobias and reacting the same way to things even when they're in separate rooms. Tillie is actually much more practical, sarcastic and down to earth than her sisters.
  • Theme Twin Naming: Their names all have the same ending.
  • Trickster Twins: Trickster triplets. Their love of playing tricks on their classmates is part of why they fit in so well with the Holliday Girls, who are lead by notrious trickster Etta Candy.
  • Twin Banter: The girls speak in unison and finish each other's sentances. They've acutally practiced this to help them with their pranks.
  • Twin Switch: Their favorite trick is posing as each other and ensuring no one can tell the three of them apart. Several of their professors require them to wear nametags to try to prevent this.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Lillie and Millie are terrified of ghosts, so of course the challenge/hazing they have to endure to join the Holliday Girls is a haunted house.

    Georgia "George" Redmond
"Okay...but don't hope for much! This is a Macintosh laptop but it can't link to just any old computer, no matter what you saw in Independence Day."

Cassandra Sandsmark's classmate and best friend. She's quite a bit more cool-headed and intellectual than her bestie, but they have similar interests and tastes and trust each other completely.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman Vol 2 #128. (1997)
Created By: John Byrne
Universes: New Earth

  • Black and Nerdy: George is a hacker, who at one point managed to hack into an Apokoliptian Supercomputer even while complaining about how it shouldn't work and real life is not like Independence Day. She later realizes it only worked because the extraterrestrial tech started modifying her hardware as soon as she managed to attach it to the motherboard's interface. She also dresses like a Japanese Schoolgirl for fun when not wearing more gender disguising clothes.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: After Phil Jimenez left Wonder Woman George was never seen nor mentioned again, even at points when Cassie's friendships were part of larger stories elsewhere it seemed the writers and editors all forgot she had any outside the costumed superhero community.
  • Companion Cube: George takes her laptop with her everywhere and is quite upset, even if she understands the reasoning, when the thing is confiscated after it's been fused with New God tech.
  • Hollywood Nerd: George usually puts very little effort into her appearance beyond comfort and is a rather androgynous teen, save when she's cosplaying, but she's still a good looking teen even out of cosplay, who of course wears glasses.
  • Nerd Glasses: Black and Nerdy hacker extraordinaire Georgia Redmond wears large wire framed glasses.
  • Muggle Best Friend: She's the normal human best friend and Secret Keeper to the demi-god superhero Cassie Sandsmark.
  • Social Circle Filler: Later writers seemed to forget that Cassie had friends outside of the superhero community, most notably her best friend, secret keeper and fellow androgynous tomboy George Redmond. First her last name was forgotten and then she never appeared or was spoken about again in any book despite Cassie appearing all over the DCU. In her case it likely happened because Cassie's personality was given a swift and shallow makeover in Teen Titans that left no room for friends or concerns outside her boyfriend and her hair.
  • Sudden Name Change: George had the surname "Redmond", but a later writer inexplicably gave her last name as "Neville".
  • Token Black Friend: George is African American and is Cassie's best and only recurring friend outside of Young Justice and other superheroes.

Universes: New Earth

  • Adventurer Archaeologist: She's far more respectful of the items and cultures she's studying than most examples, but given the often magical and sought after by villains nature of archeological artifacts in the DCU pretty much all archaeologists therein have to be rather adventurous.
  • Parental Substitute: Julia becomes a maternal figure for Diana when she's off the island. Hippolyta gets occasional bouts of jealously over the time Julia spends with her daughter.

    Natasha Teranova

  • Adapted Out: Even in adaptations which do not change Wonder Woman first entering the world to bring back Steve Trevor and help the Allies fight the Axis powers in WWII General Darnell is often left out, such as in The Legend of Wonder Woman (2016).
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He's ridiculously calm about some of the crazier things Steve encounters and does, though perhaps Darnell realizes his "secretary" is actually Wonder Woman given just how often his commands make it seem like he's trying to allow her to go help Steve.
  • The Stoic: He's serious and unruffled even with an enemy agent sitting on his desk threatening him, though given all the hints that he knows his secretary is Wonder Woman perhaps he feels he has no cause to be alarmed.

Impressed with her bravery, the Gods granted her powers of her own. Cassie became leader of Young Justice and the Teen Titans and she eventually discovered that Zeus was her father.

Her New 52 incarnation is the daughter of Wonder Woman's half-brother Lennox, and derives her powers from an ancient armor named the 'Silent Armor' related to the demon Trigon.

After he realizes Dr. Anderson doesn't care that he's a minotaur he starts being less hard on himself.
  • Insistent Terminology: He's sometimes called a minotaur, but since he's from Kythira he prefers to be called a Kythotaur. For the curious the original minotaur was the minotaur of Crete and it's species name did not reflect it's location but instead the king, Minos terming it the bull of Minos.
  • Interspecies Romance: He and Dr. Leslie Anderson, a human woman, fall in love.
  • Supreme Chef: He is a top quality chef with a specialty in vegetarian dishes.

  • No Need for Names: By the time Diana meets her on the slave planet she's acting as "The Durlan", and seems to be part of the group of Durlans who forswore names after their genetics were scrambled in the Six-Minute War, keeping her form loose and tentacley and going by the "name" the entire subculture uses.

Trope Codifier for the Barbarian Hero, created by Robert E. Howard in 1932. In 2017, Dark Horse comics and DC had a cross-over miniseries written by Gail Simone, where an amnesiac Wonder Woman is transported to the Hyborian Age and meets the World's Most Famous Barbarian.
