Biography

The New Original Wonder Woman

Diana was born in 550 BC in Ancient Greece, her mother, Hippolyta led the Amazons to Paradise Island, an uncharted isle in an area common known as the "Bermuda Triangle" in the year 24 BC. There the Amazons remained until the year 1942 when major Steve Trevor, a member of the United States Army Air Corps, crash landed after an air battle with a Nazi fighter plane. He revealed the current state of the world, resulting in Hippolyta deciding to send him back to the outside world with an Amazon to battle along side the Allies. Hippolyta forbid Diana from participating in the contest to determine the Amazon who was to go to Man's World, but in disguise Diana won the contest. Diana removes her wig and reveals her identity, and proclaims her loyalty and love to her people and her mother. Hippolyta agrees to send her with her blessing.

Diana's suit is designed to feature American emblems in the hope that she will be accepted in her new home and her golden belt will be her source of strength and power. She retains her bracelets, which deflect bullets, and also receives a golden lasso, which is indestructible, and forces people to obey and tell the truth when bound. Diana is now known as "Wonder Woman", and flies to Washington, D.C. in an invisible plane. After dropping Trevor off at a hospital, the heroine stumbles upon a bank robbery, which she stops. A theatrical agent who sees her in action invites her to take her Bullets and Bracelets act on the road as a theatrical attraction. Diana is hesitant, but she needs money in this society, so she agrees.

Meanwhile, Trevor's civilian secretary, Marcia, is revealed as a double agent for the Nazis seeks to aid top spies in killing Trevor and opposing the new threat, Wonder Woman, after her first attempt - arranging for an audience member to fire a machine gun at Wonder Woman during her stage show act - backfired when the Amazon easily deflected the multiple bullets. Later, at the hospital, Diana disguises herself as a nurse in order to keep an eye on Steve. As spy activities increase, Trevor leaves the hospital and is captured, prompting his "nurse" to do a spin in the hall where she slowly peels off uniform parts and replaces them with her Wonder Woman suit, before heading off to rescue him. Wonder Woman defeats the villainess and the spies, breaking up the spy ring. Steve later meets his new secretary, Diana Prince (Wonder Woman in disguise).
