Atalanta is a breakaway Amazon queen. In the Silver Age, she was a sister of Hippolyta and aunt of Wonder Woman who started the Amazons of the Amazon in South America. In Rebirth, she was reintroduced as a sister of Alcippe, Wonder Woman's grandmother, and the founder of the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall. She abdicated and became a lone warrior fighting Tezcatlipoca in Mexico, tying her into the origin of Aztek as well.

Atalanta was named after a figure from Greek mythology. She was created by Dan Mishkin and Don Heck, first appearing in Wonder Woman #317 (1984).
