“Hippolyta would die a thousand deaths to protect her daughter and her home” – Phillipus
Queen of the mythical Amazons, Hippolyta was the ruler of the hidden island of Themyscira and the mother of Diana, who was chosen, much against her mother’s wishes, to represent the Amazons on ’Man’s World’ as Wonder Woman. With her daughter acting as a liaison, Hippolyta presided over the first official contact between Themyscira and the rest of earth and began to reunite the two tribes of Amazons. However, when her daughter was killed and elevated to godhood by the pantheon of Olympus, Hippolyta was forced to take her place as a hero, joining the JLA in her place and battling a variety of villains.
Pursuing a case with Jay Garrick (the original Flash), she travelled back in time to the 1940s and worked alongside both the All-Star Squadron and the Justice Society of America. At this point she has been in this decade for approximately six years, battling Axis agents like the Baroness Paula von Gunther, establishing close friendships with Dr. Mid-Nite and the Flash, and even having a secret affair with Wildcat. Those that know her best call her “Polly”, and to the world at large she will always be the champion of equality and justice known as Wonder Woman!
