At last: the definitive origin story of Wonder Woman! The island of Themiscyra is a paradise. Far from man’s world, the Amazons live a life of physical, intellectual and emotional perfection…and isolation. For though they are blessed by the gods of Olympus, they can never know the world beyond their shores. Until an aircraft from another civilization crash lands on Amazonian soil, and changes their lives forever. Princess Diana has lived her entire life in her homeland’s blessed air. Her friends, her lovers, her mother are all here. But this glimpse of a world outside stirs a higher calling within her. An entire planet cries for help. A whole world needs her protection. And the very gods would see her fail. But Diana of Themiscyra is a woman of destiny. A woman of power. A woman of wonder….
