Wonder Woman (DC)(Post Crisis)(03 - Hippolyta)
Real Name: Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons
Search for 'Wonder Woman (DC)(Post Crisis)(03 - Hippolyta)' on Amazon


Bio:
Queen of the Amazons, the late 20th-century version of Diana's mother has been a much bigger part of the Wonder Woman back-story than just the worried mother sending her only daughter off to the "world of men". In this version, her political role as Queen of the Amazons has been shown in greater detail, replete with battlefield leadership, questionable politics, and surprising twists. In an effort to make sense of JSA continuity in the post-CRISIS DCU, most of Diana's Golden Age appearances have been retconned to have happened to Hippolyta. Indeed, this version donned the Wonder Woman outfit more than a few times -- and paid the political price at home for doing so. The "retconned Golden Age Wonder Woman" was far from an abstraction; she appeared as Wonder Woman early in the 1999 run of JSA - and other places - in wholly new adventures.

Unfortunately, though, she is currently dead. Thanks to her theoretically long stint as Wonder Woman, however, stories set in most years of the 20th century would likely see Hippolyta return to comics as Wonder Woman.

Use this character if the story in question explicitly refers to Hippolyta as the one wearing the bracelets. Wonder Woman's history is so confusing post-Crisis that the only way to reliably navigate is to use the character actually present in the issue, rather than the one that "probably was wearing the suit, given the events of Crisis".
