Zeus is the king of the Greek gods and father of many, including Ares, Wonder Woman, Aphrodite, Hermes, Apollo, Demeter, Eros, Tyche, Athena, Siracca, Strife, and Janus. He tends to tell the same jokes and do the same parlor tricks over and over to his children. He's often too busy to pay much attention to Wonder Woman in particular and even forgot her birthday three years in a row. On a year he remembered, Zeus gave her a pretty box but told her not to open it. She visited Olympus a few times for a holiday or weekend every once in a while. Waiting until the last minute as usual, Zeus extended invitations to his children to spend the summer with him on Olympus. Curious about her goddess side, Wonder Woman accepted and brought Bumblebee as her guest. Zeus greeted with a hug then introduced himself to Bumblebee and apologized for the lightning bolt fingertips. To Wonder Woman's disdain, Zeus did the old coin behind the ear trick. Bumblebee was amused and asked if there was anything behind her ear. To her surprise, he found a butterfly on her nose.

With nine of his children present, Zeus started dinner. He told one of his patent dad jokes at Hermes' expense. Ares suddenly teleported to Olympus and was attacked by Wonder Woman and Bumblebee. Zeus got between them and explained they were brother and sister. After things calmed down, Zeus told a story about throwing a lightning bolt at someone who spoke rudely to him.

Ares invited Zeus to a feast but he did not attend. Ares was enraged and teleported to Themyscira in search of him. Wonder Woman informed him Zeus wasn't present and speculated he was probably with Dionysus.
