Origin

Along side her sister Antiope, Hippolyta ruled the nation of Themyscira until their city was razed by Theseus and the ransacking demigod Heracles.


Raped and humiliated by Heracles, Hippolyta led her Amazons to freedom. Guided to safety by the Olympian goddesses to an island paradise, they rebuilt the nation of Themyscira with Hippolyta as their queen.
