Demeter is the Greek goddess of the harvest.

New Earth

Demeter was one of five goddesses who created the Amazons from the souls of women who had died at the hands of men. Giving the women new stronger bodies, formed of clay transformed into flesh and blood. These Amazons escaped Herakles and his men to an isolated and magically protected island called Themyscira, after their homeland was destroyed. In this new land the Amazons were granted eternal youth and beauty, though some chose to remain behind and formed the hidden nation of Bana-Mighdall.

  • This character is an adaptation of Demeter, a character in traditional stories. These include, but may not be limited to religious texts, myth, and/or folk lore. More information on the original can be found at Wikipedia.org.
  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
