The paradise island of Themyscira is home to the Amazons and their queen, Hippolyta, and princess, Wonder Woman. More importantly, it is a place of sisterhood and peace. In the heart of Themyscira, a grand Greek temple rose above the trees. The island is located a third of the way around the world from Super Hero High School. Hippolyta maintains her own garden and rearranges the boulders herself from time to time. Even as an infant, Wonder Woman began to display her super strenth and lifted a couch in search of her pet black cat. Growing up, she went to Themyscira Elementary. Hippolyta hired the highly recommended Professor Minerva to locate the three missing relics known as the Amulet of Harmonia, Lasso of Truth, and Claw of Deceit. Hippolyta warned Minerva the relics were protected by magic and only she could touch them. Eventually, Minerva found them in a cavern near the shore. She left to alert Hippolyta but Barbara Ann Minerva, her daughter, ignored her.
Barbara Ann Minerva picked up the Lasso of Truth and Claw of Deceit, which activated the magic curse. An illusion of Cerberus manifested and attacked her. Princess Diana came to her rescue and used the Lasso of Truth. Unable to withstand its power, the illusion disappeared. Minerva lied to her mother about touching anything while Diana confessed to touching the Lasso. Hippolyta declared her honesty and true heart proved she was meant to use the Lasso of Truth. Diana promised to honor it and use it for good. Minerva walked into the jungle alone and touched the Claw. She gained the power to transform into Cheetah. For the first time in her life, Wonder Woman left Themyscira, as its ambassador, to attend Super Hero High School. Wonder Woman keeps a photo of Themyscira in her dormitory room at Super Hero High. Near the end of the semester, Hippolyta invited Wonder Woman to Themyscira for the Feast of the Five.
On the Thursday before the annual Hero of the Year, Batgirl was convinced by Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Bumblebee to use her off campus pass to take them to Themyscira to get the Wonder Shield repaired after a run-in with Big Barda left it damaged. Hippolyta and the Amazons greeted the girls upon their arrival. Hippolyta handed the Wonder Shield over to the Master Alchemist to repair. Supergirl thought about home and her Mnemosyne Crystal activated. Wonder Woman showed the girls around the palace, ending at the royal spa. Hippolyta revealed there was one more, to her embarrassment, a trophy room filled with all of Wonder Woman's awards from the past year. Hippolyta revealed a whole wing on the other side of the palace had to be built in order to house Wonder Woman's elementary school honors. Before they feasted, the Master Alchemist presented the newly repaired Wonder Shield. Hippolyta decided to give her gift to Wonder Woman before the Hero of the Year ceremony, the Tiara of Triumph.
The Shadow Demon that stowed away on the Batjet's underside appeared and stole the ruby on the Tiara. The girls were unable to find it on account of Bumblebee's damaged tech giving out during the pursuit. Hippolyta tasked the Amazons with searching the island after the girls departed. Eclipso opened a portal and kidnapped the Master Alchemist from her work shop. Wonder Woman later set up a slumber party at Themyscira over a weekend with Batgirl, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, and Miss Martian. They prepared to leave on Friday after school on the Batjet but it was stolen by Etrigan in his haste to evade Trigon's demons. Batgirl, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Miss Martian, Supergirl, Katana, Hawkgirl, and Bumblebee were aided by the Flash and Beast Boy. They managed to rescue Etrigan from the Underworld and procured the Batjet after Black Canary, Black Condor, and Magpie stole it from the Portal Coffee Shop. The girls departed from Smallville. Lacking fuel, the Batjet was carried by Wonder Woman and Supergirl the entire way.
Hippolyta greeted them. Harley Quinn was eager to commence the all night games, movies, and hair braiding. She got out three board games, "The Little Mera-Maid," "Mister Twister," and "Lasso of Truth or Dare" but everyone else was already fast asleep. Harley opened up a copy of "The Odyssey" to read but it was too much like the day's events and she joined the others. Halfway through summer, Strife invaded Themyscira. She used her powers of dischord to get the Amazons to fight amongst each other while she stole the Amulet of Harmonia. After Ares and Strife were defeated, Wonder Woman returned the Amulet. Hippolyta decided to open the royal palace to Syrian refugees, including Wonder Woman's half-sister Siracca and her mother, to stay until until their homes were safe to return to. At the end of summer, Wonder Woman and Bumblebee left Mount Olympus for Themyscira to visit Siracca. Wonder Woman returned to Themyscira to celebrate the Party of Plenty with the Amazons and brought along Harley, Supergirl, and Batgirl.
However, Ares teleported to the palace and demanded to know where Zeus was after he failed to attend his own feast. Wonder Woman had no idea where Zeus was either but Ares continued with his tantrum. The girls were unable to defeat him with their conventional weapons and attacks. Wonder Woman tasked Harley with retrieving the Amulet of Harmonia from the Hall of Honors. Ares blasted Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl out of the palace into the forest below. They regrouped. Batgirl threw out smoke bombs then in unison she threw two Batarangs while Wonder Woman and Supergirl punched Ares in the face. Wonder Woman then lassoed Ares and told him to go home. Ares was angered by her insolence. He removed the Lasso and increased his size to gigantic propotions then sliced up the top floor of the palace. Wonder Woman used her strength to hold up the roof while Harley applied the Amulet to Ares' forehead. He immediately felt harmonious. He apologzied, put some of the columns back, and went back home to meditate. Wonder Woman apologized to the others and cited there was always family drama when she went home for a holiday.
Lena Luthor chose Themyscira for the site of her secondary Electromagnetic Generator in case her three main generators across the world were turned off by superheroes. Luthor left it on the most powerful part of the island, where the Amazons gathered for combat and/or movie night. Eclipso sent her Purple Kryptomites to keep the Amazons in a state of hypnosis in the meantime. Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Supergirl tracked down the generator as soon as it went online. Wonder Woman realized it was on Themyscira when Batgirl couldn't lock onto the location. She used her Lasso of Truth to lift the generator in the air then slammed it to pieces. Luthor arrived soon after in her hovercraft and was annoyed with the developments. Eclipso suddenly appeared in her spaceship and revealed her true plans to turn Earth into a new Gemworld to rule then left. Bumblebee joined the girls after posing as another hypnotized victim for some time. Wonder Woman and Bumblebee stayed behind to defeat the Kryptomites while Batgirl, Supergirl and Luthor went to the Batbunker to create a computer virus to stop Eclipso.
