This section of the history takes place during the New 52, between the events of Flashpoint and DC Rebirth. It was later revealed that much of Wonder Woman's history from this time was an elaborate illusion created by the Gods of Olympus to keep her away from Paradise Island. All or part of this section may have been part of that illusion and no longer valid in Rebirth.

In a series of false memories his brother Zeus had implanted in Wonder Woman' mind Hades attempted to force the Amazon to marry him, and was later killed by the First Born.

Powers

  • Godly Physiology: Hades belongs to a race of ancient and inconceivably powerful beings known as the Old Gods. Because of this heritage Hades has almost unlimited power.[1]
    • Cosmic Awareness: Hades, like all Old Gods, is aware of the multiverse and the realms that lie beyond. This knowledge gives him an understanding of the universe and all life that transcends the capabilities of normal mortals.[1]
    • Flight[2]
    • Immortality: As an Old God worshipped by the ancient Greeks and Romans, Hades has lived for at least a few millennia.[3]


  • This character is an adaptation of Hades, 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.
