"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.

Wonder Woman 1984[]

In 1984, Prince works at the Smithsonian Museum as an archaeologist while moonlighting as Wonder Woman, with her new co-worker, Barbara Ann Minerva, becoming envious of Diana. Ann Minerva and Prince help the FBI identify some antiques stolen from a heist foiled by Wonder Woman, noticing that one item, the Dreamstone, contains a Latin inscription claiming to grant the holder one wish.

Minerva wishes to become like Prince, but acquires the same superpowers, while Prince unknowingly wishes for Trevor to be alive, resurrecting him in another man's body; the two are reunited at a Smithsonian gala. However, only Prince can see him as Trevor. Minerva, Prince, and "Trevor" discover that the Dreamstone was created by Dolos/Mendacius, the god of lies, treachery, deception, and mischief, also known as Duke of Deception. It grants a user's wish while exacting a toll unless they renounce the wish or destroy the stone.

Learning from the U.S. President of a satellite system that broadcasts signals globally, Maxwell Lord, whose powers are causing his body to deteriorate, plans to globally grant wishes to steal strength and life force from the viewers and regain his health. Prince and "Trevor" confront him at the White House, but Minerva, now aligned with Lord, defeats Prince, escaping with Lord on Marine One. Donning the armor of Asteria, Prince battles Minerva, who has transformed into a cheetah-like creature. Following a brutal match, Prince tackles Cheetah into a lake and electrocutes her, then pulls her out.

She confronts Lord and uses her Lasso of Truth to communicate with the world through him, convincing everyone to renounce their wishes, then shows Lord visions of his own unhappy childhood and of his son, Alistair, who is frantically searching for his father amid the chaos. Max renounces his wish and reunites with Alistair. On Christmas, Diana meets the man whose body Trevor possessed.

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."
―Diana Prince[src]

Justice League[]

"People said the Age of Heroes would never come again."
―Diana Prince[src]

In 2017, Wonder Woman stops a terrorist bomb plot in London. Seeing a news report that features a signal fire burning at the Shrine of the Amazons in Greece, Prince realizes that her mother had sent a message from Themyscira to warn her of an impending invasion. She then meets with Wayne in Gotham, explaining the history of the first invasion of Earth by the forces of Apokolips. While Wayne goes after Arthur Curry and Barry Allen, Prince tracks down the elusive Victor Stone.

Wonder Woman calms down the school girls held hostage by the terrorist group in London and explores the tunnels underneath the Shrine of the Amazons to find imagery of the first invasion of Earth by Apokolips, led by Darkseid. She votes in favor of resurrecting Superman in addition to joining Allen and Stone along with Curry in digging up Clark Kent's corpse. Prince and Curry talk about the historical rivalry between the Amazons and Atlanteans, dismissing it while finding they have more in common than they expected.

Stone is initially hesitant about joining the team, despite providing some intel to Prince, but later joins when Steppenwolf kidnaps his father and several other S.T.A.R. Labs employees in an attempt to retrieve the last Mother Box. The team rescues the employees and takes the last Mother Box during the skirmish before Aquaman arrives and saves them from a deluge of floodwater. Realizing the potential of the Mother Box, Wayne decides to have the team use it to resurrect Superman, whereas Prince and Curry express skepticism. Allen and Stone exhume Clark Kent's body and the team successfully resurrects him in the facility used to create Doomsday, but Superman, having lost his memories, attacks the group after Cyborg accidentally launches a missile at him. In the skirmish, Steppenwolf takes the last Mother Box from the group as it was left unattended. As Superman leaves with Lois to regain his memories, the five other heroes recuperate at the Batcave. Prince tends to Wayne's wounds as the two apologize for some harsh words towards each other earlier.

As the group flies to a Russian village to prevent Steppenwolf from uniting all the Mother Boxes and terraforming the Earth, Batman decides to lead a suicidal charge to distract Steppenwolf while Wonder Woman leads the others to the Mother Boxes in an attempt to get Cyborg to separate them. The plan ultimately fails, but Superman arrives, saving Cyborg from being killed by Steppenwolf and assisting Allen with evacuating the villagers. Steppenwolf is ultimately defeated as Superman freezes his axe with his frost breath while Wonder Woman shatters it.

She is shown to be on-par with Steppenwolf in terms of melee-fighting prowess, though he manipulates her emotions by falsely claiming he killed her mother. In the Zack Synder version, after Superman overpowers Steppenwolf and Aquaman impales him following the separation of the Mother Boxes, Wonder Woman decapitates the New God after Superman throws him back into the boom tube, with his disembodied head and corpse landing at Darkseid's feet back on Apokolips. Diana is last seen looking towards Themyscira as she contemplates about her fellow Amazons.

In the theatrical version, overcome with fear, Steppenwolf is attacked by his own Parademons as they all teleport back to Apokolips. Following the team's victory, Prince and Wayne decide to expand the operations of the team, now named the Justice League, and Diana begins to serve more openly as Wonder Woman.
