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 All or part of this section may have been part of that illusion and no longer valid in Rebirth.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 created by Zeus Apollo took over Zeus' throne, tried to kill Wonder Woman and had the First Born tortured and partially eaten alive before getting killed by him.[citation needed]
