Quote1.png I used to want to save the world. To end war and bring peace to mankind. But then I glimpsed the darkness that lives within their light. I learnt that inside every one of them there will always be both. The choice each must make for themselves, something no hero will ever defeat. And now I know... that only love can truly save the world. So now I stay, I fight, and I give. For the world I know can be. This is my mission now. Forever. Quote2.png
Wonder Woman src

Diana is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons, and the sky god Zeus. Growing up on Themyscira, she ventured out to join the rest of the world during World War I, where she became known as Wonder Woman. Over the coming decades, under the alias of Diana Prince, she operated in secret as a vigilante, stopping crime and helping people. She lost her lover Steve Trevor, faced and took down threats like Ares, Max Lord, and Doomsday, and, with the Batman, helped found the Justice League to stop the invasion of Steppenwolf.[2][1][3][4]

Origins

 Main article: Wonder Woman (2017 Movie)


After the Gods of Olympus intervened in the affairs of men and helped liberate the Amazons from slavery, Ares was angry. So angry he killed all the other gods. Zeus, mortally wounded, could only escape. He created an island for the Amazons where they could hide from Ares, and also gave them a powerful weapon, the only thing that could kill a god: another god. He gave Hippolyta a daughter, Diana. To make sure no one would find out, Hippolyta created a cover story that she crafted her daughter out of clay. Diana was not to know her true heritage, or Ares might resurface.

Growing up, Diana knew she was different, but not how. She was banned from training with the other Amazons, though she took up secret training with her aunt Antiope. As she grew up, she became a formidable fighter. But like her mother feared, the intense training eventually led her to find out she had more powers than other Amazons.[2]

Return

 Main article: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Diana returned to the limelight close to a century later, hoping to retrieve the photograph of her and her team that was taken in Veld. It was stored on a secure LexCorp server, which required her to infiltrate the facility during a gala. She met Bruce Wayne, who also planned to extract files from LexCorp servers, and following the party communicated with him about the information. He learned about her secret and gave her the file she wanted.

Originally planning to return home, Diana glimpsed a news report of Batman and Superman fighting a monstrous creature in Metropolis. She came to their aid but it still couldn't turn the battle around. Eventually, Superman killed the creature with a Green Kryptonite spear, but sacrificed himself in the process.

At Superman's private funeral in Smallville, Batman and Wonder Woman discussed their plans to form a team with the other super-powered people in Luthor's files.[1]
