At the age of three Diana was able to pull out trees the roots and all. At the age of five Diana was faster then a deer.
By drinking from the Fountain of Eternal Youth, Diana would maintain her beauty and happiness (prior to winning the contest to travel to the man's world).
Wonder Woman received a new Magic Lasso that she can control the minds of whoever she has bounded up. The Magic Lasso was made at the command of Aphrodite and Athena. The Magic Lasso was made of fine chain links from a Magic Girdle. The Amazonian Metala created the Magic Lasso. Sensation Comics #6 "Summons To Paradise".
The bracelets were given to the Amazons by Aphrodite to free the Amazons from the clutches of the men.
At the age of fifteen Diana received her bracelets of submission.
By drinking from the Fountain of Eternal Youth, Diana would maintain her beauty and happiness. However, if Diana were to leave Paradise Island she would lose her beauty and happiness (prior to winning the contest to travel to the man's world).
If the bracelets on her wrists were ever bound together by chains by a man Wonder Woman would lose her strength. Sensation Comics #4 "School For Spies"
Queen Hippolyte created a statue of a girl child from clay; the Queen prayed to Aphrodite for the statue to receive life. Aphrodite answered her prayer and the statue received life. Queen Hippolyte named her Diana after the moon goddess mistress of chase.
From 1985 to 2005, this character did not exist. The Crisis of Infinite Earths blanked out her Earth so utterly that it, and she, no longer existed at any point in time.
This fact made comic fans in the last two decades of the 20th century scramble to find a way to make her stories somehow "work" within the context of the post-Crisis Earth. Various attempts were made to get her adventures in the pages of Sensation and All Star and the original Wonder Woman title to somehow have relevancy to the post-Crisis Earth. Various other characters, like Miss America and Hippolyta, were used as substitutes for Diana when stories set in World War II were referenced. Until the events of Infinite Crisis her appearances were asterisked with a note, usually worded "retconned out of existence".
Indeed, in the context of a story set between the two Crises, it may be necessary to view this character as having never been born to get the story to "work".
However, following the events of Infinite Crisis, there is such a thing as an "Earth-2 Wonder Woman", even if the chances of seeing her again in a modern comic book are relatively remote. Still, readers did enjoy her company again in the pages of 2005's Infinite Crisis series, in which she not only met the modern Wonder Woman, but played a pivotal role in the resolution of one of the main plot threads.
While the post-Crisis Diana of Themyscira is still said to have been on Paradise Island during World War II, with her mother bearing the mantle during that global conflict, DC are no longer saying that Wonder Woman of Earth-2 never existed. In an attempt to end the mind-numbing task of trying to decide how to retcon each and every story using this character in light of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, DC's editorial intent in the early 21st century seems to be much simpler. Their motto now seems to be, "What happened on Earth-2 stays on Earth-2—until we say differently."
Thus, as of 2006, this character entirely survives, with all of her adventures intact. It's just that they're not relevant to the modern Diana. They're firmly different people, from different Earths, with wholly different continuities.
