The Amazons are an all-female society of superhuman warriors from the paradise island of Themyscira and have their origins in Greek mythology. They have been granted enhanced strength, speed and durability alongside immortality by their patron Goddesses
so that they may guard the gates of the underworld. A task assigned to them when they disobeyed their Goddesses' will and took vengeance on the army of Heracles, the entirety of which had betrayed and humiliated them.
There are two major factions of Amazons. There are those who live on Themyscira, magically isolated from the rest of the world, under the rule of Queen Hippolyta, mother of the Princess Diana, aka Wonder Woman. The second group of Amazons chose to remain
in Patriarch's World, refusing to accept the punishment of their Goddesses, and call themselves Bana-Mighdallians. This group is believed to be led by Hippolyta's former closest sister in arms, Antiope.
