The Amazons are a group of women created in approximately 1200 BC by five Olympian goddesses in order to teach mankind the principles of equality, justice and harmony. 3000 in number, the Amazons built the city of Themyscira in ancient Greece. After suffering much hardship, Themyscira was relocated on a remote island paradise. Living in relative isolation, the Amazons were immortalized by their gods and lived in peace. In modern times, Princess Diana became Wonder Woman and journeyed to Man's World where she a superhero and member of the Justice League.
In the Flashpoint timeline, Diana became queen of the Amazons and never left Themyscira. Themyscira and Atlantis entered into an alliance but soon became mortal enemies after an affair between King Orin and Queen Diana led to the murder of Queen Mera. Their war devastated Europe. The Amazons eventually invaded the United Kingdom and slaughtered 32 million. They declared the country to be New Themyscira. Through some form of magic, the Amazons protected New Themyscira from the destructive force of Aquaman's doomsday weapon. Undaunted, an Atlantean surface invasion was imminent. Cyborg attempted to gather a coalition of superheroes to intervene and sent Lois Lane to gather intelligence. Three months later, the Amazons learned of Lane's mission and were about to execute her when Professor Zoom, of all people, saved her in order to taunt the Flash. A coalition fleet sent by the President of the United States of America was decimated by the Amazons. The war continued and Amazons battled Atlanteans along with Cyborg's team and the Resistance until Aquaman's doomsday device wiped out the island.
