Althea is a physician and surgeon on Paradise Island who aided Princess Diana in tending to the wounded pilot Steve Trevor when he crash landed in the ocean off the island's shore.[1]

Althea acts as the primary physician to the Royal family and is thus familiar with and close to Queen Hippolyte and Princess Diana. Diana trusted her to help when Diana and Mala rescued Capt. Trevor even though bringing a man ashore threatened breaking the Law of Aphrodite and earning the goddess's wrath.[1][2]


  • Immortality: As a true Amazon rather than just a visitor or refugee on Paradise Island she drinks from the fountain of youth and has thereby extended her life far past that of an ordinary human.


  • This version of Althea, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • Doctor Althea of Paradise Island and Princess Althea of the Sargasso Kingdom are two different seemingly-immortal girls from ancient Greece.
