Antiope is a powerful Amazon and supporting character of Wonder Woman. In Greek myth, she was the sister of Hippolyta and Menalippe, and the wife of Theseus. When she first appeared, she was an Amazon general critical of Hippolyta's rule. After the Crisis on Infinite Earths, she was made Hippolyta's sister; her marriage and death at the hands of Theseus sparked the foundation of the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall. In the New 52, she is depicted as Hippolyta's mother and predecessor, also known as Alcippe. Antiope is a traditional character and was first adapted for the DC Universe by Dan Mishkin and Don Heck, and first appeared in Wonder Woman #312. (1984) ||
