Perez cover for Wonder Woman #1

Generic Amazon of Themyscira


This is a 97% technical article, adapted from the old Mayfair sourcebook Strangers in Paradise. it provides a sense for stock stats for Amazons, which is useful for our Wonder Woman work.

It could be redone with *extensive* research over decades of WW comics, but that hasn’t been possible so far.

Powers and Abilities

An Amazon is a hearty and steadfast one. A woman of superior strength, courage, intelligence and moral character.


The average Amazon has been through a lot : born in pre-history, violently killed somehow/somewhere by an unthinking early man, reborn as a Amazon, raped by one of Heracles’s troops, exiled to Paradise Island, turned immortal and finally, after thousands of year, witnessing the departure of her Princess to establish contact with the World of Man.


Noble and life-preserving ; unsure as to this whole World of Man business.
