Diana was blessed by the gods with amazing speed and strength. She also possesses the power of flight, silver bracelets that can deflect bullets, and an indestructible golden lasso spun from the girdle of the Earth Goddess Gaea.
Diana was raised among a fabled race of Amazons who trained her to be the ultimate Amazonian warrior. Now, for the first time, she has ventured out into Man's World. Her sheltered existence on Themyscira hardly prepared her for the greed, cruelty, and oppression that she finds among the human race. It was recently revealed that both Hippolyta and Hades who sculpted Diana with clay and some time after Hades was sent to Tartarus, the Greek gods animated Diana, most likely because they took pity on Hippolyta for her part in Hades' scheme to ursurp power on Olympus.
When Felix Faust unseated Hades in Tartarus, a magical imbalance was created. The Greek gods ordered Wonder Woman to rectify the situation, despite her being banished from Themyscira. Afterwards, Wonder Woman and Hippolyta reconciled. A yearlater, Wonder Woman was asked by her mother to act as the island's diplomat. Wonder Woman debuted at a World Assembly summit to implore to nations to act against global warming. Instead, she fell upon the Legion of Doom attempting to extract the Viking Prince's body. After the confrontation, Wonder Woman decided to give the Viking Price a funeral pyre, though an untraditional one.
Diana does not show her emotions very often, quite like Batman, she keeps her emotions to herself. As she was raised in a secret island with no men, she finds man's world intriguing. With her deep sense of honor, she is easily offended when she is not accorded the respect that she feels she deserves, and she does not suffer fools gladly. Yet beneath this imposing exterior, she has a sly sense of humor. She tends to view all men as inferior beings, with the notable exception of Batman.
In "The Savage Time", she received her first kiss from Steve Trevor, a spy when she went back in time. She then revisited him when she was back in the future and he had grown older. It is not known how the encounter turned out. Wonder Woman has also been linked to Batman. In "Maid of Honor," she danced with Bruce Wayne, not knowing it was Batman until some time later. She eventually locked lips with Batman during the events of Starcrossed while trying to hide from Thanagarian warriors.
