Quote1 I knew but one thing... that I knew nothing. Courage is strange. We all hope we have it, but few are truly tested. Although my sister certainly passed. But what of me? It was a question I asked myself many times as I pondered when and where my twin and I might meet. It was a brisk afternoon at sea, late in the summer, when I found the answer. Quote2
Jason src
Jason is the long lost son of Queen Hippolyta and Zeus, and Princess Diana's twin brother.[2]

Origin

When Jason's mother, Hippolyta, found out she was pregnant with Zeus' children, she felt that one of them would be male. She contacted Glaucus, one of the Argonauts, and asked him to take care of the boy in order to escape Hera's jealous wrath, as hiding a boy on the island of Themyscira would be next to impossible.[3]

Jason was raised by Glaucus, friend of Hercules, himself an Argonaut as well. Hippolyta requested he be named after Jason, the leader of the Argonauts.[4]

Darkseid War

Just before she died, Myrina—an Amazon assassin and mother of Grail, Darkseid's daughter—told Wonder Woman that the night she was born, the Queen of the Amazons bore another child right after Diana, and that it was a boy.[2]

Myrina didn't know what had happened to him, but she said he was the true Chosen One. Diana inquired further and asked what he was chosen for, but Myrina died before she could explain any further.[2]

Children of the Gods

Jason was working as a fisherman on a fishing boat in the Aegean Coast, Greece, when he was found by Wonder Woman. She discovered his location from a message in Hercules' last will and testament, which left all his possessions, including Jason's secret, to his half-sister, Diana. When Diana and Jason met, first of all they felt that they were deeply connected, immediately recognizing their sibling ties.[3]

However, it would not be long before Jason revealed his jealousy for his sister, who was raised as princess of Themyscira and became known throughout the world as Wonder Woman, while he was forced to hide his existence from the world, living as a fisherman among the mortal. Still, he disobeyed his adopted father by engaging in battles against powerful enemies from the shadows, risking to be discovered. Because of this feeling, Jason sided with Grail and betrayed Diana, revealing his hatred for her.[4]

Then we learn more about Jason's story: how he came to live with Glaucus, how he discovered his powers by himself as a child and, at that moment, Glaucus told him about his real parents and that he had a sister; of how he was trained by Hercules, his paternal half brother, on the warrior's path, and, as a short time later, Glaucus left and left him alone when he realized that the boy had grown up and no longer needed his raising, leaving him a new fishing boat as a farewell gift. Now lonely in the world, Jason dedicated himself to living as a fisherman, but also to enjoying life; likewise, his challenges were becoming greater, as when he faced the Deep Six alone, which was sent by Darkseid after him.[5]

The loneliness he felt made it easier for Grail to bring him to her side, lying to him when she said that she did not kill Hercules and his other brothers and sisters to absorb the energy of Zeus in them for her father, Darkseid. Having taken Diana as a prisoner to the Amazon Jungle, the latter explained to Jason the truth about Grail's murder of Zeus's children, and, seeing her suffer fighting Grail and Darkseid together, Jason repented and turned to his sister's side. At that moment they were surprised by the arrival of Diana's lawyer, Mr. Blake Hooper, who turned out to be Zeus himself.[6]

However, Darkseid's real goal was to defeat Zeus himself to absorb his power and return to the powerful status of before he was defeated by the Justice League, while hunting and killing his children was bait to lure him. Zeus was killed by Darkseid, leaving Diana in a rage for failing to defeat him before he and Grail left, and Jason was overcome with remorse for his betrayal.[7]
