After he created humanity, he saw his son Ares corrupt them with thoughts of war. When the other gods created the Amazons to counter this thread, the God of War staged a coup. Though he was successful in slaying the gods and usurping Mount Olympus, Zeus survived. With his last power, he travelled to the Amazons on Themyscira and left with them a mighty weapon. In legend, this was framed as the God Killer, a mighty sword, but in reality he had sired a daughter with Queen Hippolyta. This daughter, Diana, would be Ares' undoing.
