Context

Diana is an obscure opponent of Batman & the Outsiders. She was only seen in one 1984 story.

She’s conveniently generic and undetailed, *and* she’s part of a themed team (Antaeus, Argus, Nox, Proteus, Vulcanus). So having notes for these guys sounds good to us.

Powers and Abilities

Diana is a mistress huntress, swordswoman and archer.


History

The New Olympians is a group of mortal supervillains who were given their abilities by the Monitor. They were assembled by Maxie Zeus to assault the 1984 Olympic Games in L.A., with President Reagan in attendance. Batman intervened and challenged the New Olympians to compete with his Outsiders in a variety of contests.

Diana herself entered a contest of fencing and archery with Katana, which wasn’t a good idea.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Diana seems refined and somewhat aristocratic. She considered Antaeus and Geoforce’s wrestling match to be a crude spectacle, and saw fencing with Katana much more elegant.

She was shocked by Katana’s incredible weapon skills, but didn’t seem to be a sore loser. Although Katana knocked her out before she could really react at the end of the match.


Quotes

“We will use dueling épées – not foils, so as not to blunt the thrill of combat !”

Let loose the dogs of war

Diana is often accompanied by a small pack of hunting dogs. In her actual appearance, she somehow ended up with just a pair of pointer-type hunting dogs. Obviously, you can dispense with the poodles and break out a quartet of mastiffs instead. A large bloodhound, Great Dane or similar will have the following stats :
