The ambitious Captain Steve Trevor had been in the British Royal Air Marines less then two years, shipping out of Bristol on H.M.S. Disraeli, when an anarchist bomb ignited the gas cells of the airship. He was the sole survivor of the crew, having swum almost without strength to the beaches of a mysterious island inhabited solely by women: Amazonia.
He deceived the queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta, by making himself a good man and gaining their confidence so that he could know their secrets. After he was rescued, he informed the government of his discovery. With the desire to conquer the island, the British Crown sent a squadron of both air and sea ships. The Amazons fought bravely, but were overtaken by the British military superiority and were almost all killed, including the Queen, and the rest of them were enslaved and kept on the island, which now belonged to the British Empire. At that moment, Trevor was badly injured and lost his right leg.
The young Princess Diana was about three when she was snatched away from Amazonia by the British soldiers. A few years later, after she grew up in the streets of London, Diana was forcibly married to Trevor and has become the star of the theatre show in Stephen Trevor's Museum of Oddities which acted out Bible stories. Without her husband knowing, she eventually adopted the heroic persona of Wonder Woman, organizing resistance against Jack the Ripper and his men, in fact the cruel King Jack of England, a misogynistic man who suspended all women's rights and established a harsh patriarchy.
After discovering that Diana Trevor was the Wonder Woman, the now Major Stephen Trevor and King Jack poisoned her and took her back to Amazonia in order to exterminate her and the surviving Amazons by experimenting with the new drug developed by the king: the Distillate of Masculinity. The distillate is capable of suppressing all the feminine traces in a man, which the King considers inferior and a sign of weakness.
After drinking the potion, Stephen and other men developed enhanced stature and strength, as well as a great thirst for blood. He faced Wonder Woman, but, after a difficult fight, he was defeated and killed by her, although she still loves him.
