Aresia was a deeply misandric villain of the Justice League.
Aresia was a refugee from a war torn country. Traveling by boat she was among those who tired to escape with her mother, however pirates attacked the ship, causing its destruction. Because she was knocked unconscious, Aresia was unaware the ship captain survived and used every ounce of his strength to push her to the nearest island. That island was none other than Themyscira, home of the Amazonians. Upon his arrival, he was greeted briefly by Queen Hippolyta before passing away due to the stress on his heart. Honored, the captain was buried by Hippolyta on the island, but his existence was kept secret.
Upon waking, Aresia was under the impression than she was the only survivor of the ship. It was then she was raised as an Amazon, and their ways. But due to traditions, Aresia was to be locked up in her room for a year, and truly decide if she wants to be an Amazon. It was here, Aresia used this as a plan to kill all the men in the world, believing them to be responsible. Using her solitude, Aresia created a virus designed to only kill men. She escaped confinement and assembled a new Injustice Gang to assemble her weapon. The gas was successful, as shown on her first victim, Superman, to leave men in a weakened state, and was an airborne contaminant. Using the only female members of the Injustice Gang: Star Sapphire and Tsukuri, Aresia kidnapped Hippolyta and had plans to dump the virus into a Jetstream, pushing it all over the world.
Hawkgirl and Wonder Woman confronter Aresia, having hijacked a plane. It's here, Hippolyta finally reveals the captain's role in her survival, but admits she didn't see it important. However this alone isn't enough to stop Aresia, and she fights Wonder Woman, having armed the explosive missile loaded with the virus. After Hawkgirl sabotages the bay doors, the others opt to escape, knowing the resulting explosion would kill them. Diana tries in vain to save Aresia, but she pushes Diana out believing she can control the vessel. Unfortunately, the missile goes off, killing Aresia in the resulting explosion.
Aresia was a normal human female, however her time on Themyscira, the Amazons endowed her with Amazon strength and abilities.
