"A hundred years ago, I walked away from mankind. A century full of horrors. Mankind made a world where standing together is impossible."
―Diana Prince to Bruce Wayne[src]

Diana of Themyscira is the Amazon-Olympian demigoddess hybrid princess of Themyscira.

After Diana joined forces with her lover, Steve Trevor to end World War I and after defeating Ares, she vowed to protect the world from several dangerous threats, albeit in a cautious and distant way; Diana would then become the superheroine known as Wonder Woman.


Wonder Woman

"I used to want to save the world, this beautiful place. But the closer you get, the more you see the great darkness within. I learned this the hard way, a long time ago."
―Diana Prince[src]

Diana was raised in Themyscira, where she is raised to become an Amazon, a warrior woman whose goal is to protect mankind. Since the Amazons abandoned mankind a long time ago, Diana decides she must go and continue to protect mankind, despite other Amazons stating that it's not worth it. After traveling to the world outside of Themyscira in 1918, she encounters Steve Trevor.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

"The world’s first and foremost female Super Hero, Wonder Woman at once embodies the unrivaled force and supreme grace of a born warrior, and the genuine compassion and understanding of a true humanitarian. As a symbol of equality, power, and truth, her natural confidence and unmistakable intelligence make her an unequaled, if unexpected, ally.

The immortal Amazonian Princess Diana keeps her eyes and ears open for intrigue as the beautiful and mysterious antiquities dealer, Diana Prince."

Wonder Woman Bookends

"I used to want to save the world. To end war and bring peace to mankind. But then, I glimpsed the darkness that lives within their light. I learned that inside every one of them, there will always be both. The choice each must make for themselves - something no hero will ever defeat. And now, I know... that only love can truly save the world. So I stay. I fight, and I give... for the world I know can be. This is my mission now. Forever."
