The origin of Wonder Woman and her equipment
The origin of Wonder Woman
Diana’s bedtime story when she was a child introduced Diana’s birth as a mother, but later her mother, Hippolyta, admitted that it was just a bedtime story, not true.
Diana is an illegitimate daughter of Hippolyte and Zeus. So Diana will be different from other Amazons. She has a half-human and half-god lineage.
To resist the invasion of Aris and to protect the last holy island paradise, in the weakest time of Ares, Zeus and Hippolyge gave birth to the illegitimate daughter Diana, and Diana is the gods themselves.
In Greek mythology, Ares is the embodiment of the spirit of the Martial Arts, the title of God of War, the son of Zeus and Hera. He is the most hated among the gods because he is bloodthirsty, bloody, and cruel. At the same time, he is also a very good strategist, so he is doing a good job in inducing the dark side of human beings.
Ares can be transformed into human beings, which induces the dark and cruel side of human beings. When humans release negative energy when they kill each other, Ares can absorb these energies and grow themselves. So when the world war broke out, Ares grew rapidly.
To resist his son Aris, and Zepolu gave birth to Diana, Zeus received the blessings of the twelve gods of Olympus. So when Diana was born:
Naturally possessed the strongness of Hercules (Hercules), the wisdom is given by the goddess Athena, the value of the goddess Aphrodite, the ability of the goddess of hunting, Alters, to communicate with animals. And the ability to strike with precision, the speed that God has given Hermes and so on.
Of course, there is a whole set of equipment that Herzous Herstos has tailored for her, so if you want to resist the rise of Ares, you must train and strengthen Diana, and Diana is flowing with the blood of Zeus. The skills that the gods have given are born with a sense of mission. However, at this time, Hippolytus was a mother-in-law, and she loved her. She did not want Diana to be a victim from the beginning, and she did not want her to become a weapon.
And Hippolyte’s sister, Angotti, of course, knows this secret. As a general, she naturally defends the safety of Paradise Island as the top priority. So I was secretly training Diana with Hippolyte, just in case Arris came over, only Diana could resist the destruction of Paradise Island.
The film has done a lot of simplification, but in fact, many things are happening in the comics. The ultimate goal of Paradise Island and the Amazon is not to protect the so-called human beings, but Paradise Island is the time and space gate to the underworld. The Amazons came to Paradise Island to guard Doom’s Doorway. If the gates of the underworld are opened, let alone all human beings, the whole universe will suffer.
In the early days of guarding, that is, when there was no Diana, the Amazons kept their mission, but they were jealous of Ares. He used his teachings to induce divine power and let his brother Hercules attack the island of paradise.
At that time, Hippolyte advocated peace and set up a sumptuous dinner to entertain Hercules, but was counted by Hercules, poisoned in the wine, and then imprisoned the entire Amazon. The mournful Hippolytus summoned the goddess Athena in prison to seek help, and Athena allowed them to be free, provided that they no longer pursued them. Hippolyte agreed, and Hippolyte’s sister Antioch did not agree, ready to send troops to retaliate, but at this time Hercules had already left Paradise Island.
From the storyline of the comics, we can see why Hippo’s sister, Antioch, hated Aris because they had nothing to do with Aris.
Wonder Woman’s outfit
Introduce a god with craftsmanship before talking about equipment: Hervistos. He is a god of fire and a god of art in Greek mythology. He is also the son of Zeus and Hera, the king of the universe, so he is also the brother of Diana. Hevistos was so ugly that even his mother disliked him and was broken into a scorpion by Zeus.
See: the poor man in the twelve main gods of Greek mythology: the god of fire Hephaestus
The gods, therefore, laughed at him. Since then, Hervisto is inspirational to be an ingenious laborer! The gods originally lived in the comfort of Mount Olympus, but Hervistos felt that there was no place for him, so he decided to go to the Etna mountain grass next door to create a craftsman shop. Hard work pays off, many gods come to him to build their equipment, such as Apollo’s Japanese car, such as the silver arrow of Eros, such as the Aegis of Zeus. Of course, there are also Wonder Woman’s mantras, shields, and wing boots. All from Hevistos quality assurance.
Mantra Lasso: This is Hevistos made with the gold belt of the goddess Gaia as the raw material. The people who are tied up by the lasso can only tell the truth. But for Wonder Woman, if the mantra lends her, she will become weak and become divine. This setting is very similar to that of Superman if he encounters a comet green ore that is weak and weak.
The swords and shields of the sorcerer: between the sorcerers and the shields in the comics are specially designed by Hebros. The Sword of the Deity is to be most effective in the bravest warriors. In other words, how much power do you have the ability to control this sword, and how much this sword can provide you with. But in the film, the ability to smash the sword of the gods is incorporated into Diana’s blood, to simplify the complicated plot.
Divine bracelet: For Amazon’s cool guys, the bracelet is their fixed accessory. In the comics of different eras, the evolution of the bracelet has the same interpretation version as the wonder woman cosplay costumes. Bracelets not only have a defensive role but also have their meaning. In the early days of the Amazon, they used to be slaves, tied with handcuffs on their hands. After they were free, the handcuffs became a defensive bracelet, meaning that imprisonment became defense and freedom. It has also become one of the symbols of the Amazon.
The power bracelet has a very high degree of protection, such as the block bullets, but in the hands of Diana, the power bracelet also has the power of conduction. Because Diana is the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta, she naturally has divine power. Therefore, in the competition in the film, the inadvertent movement allowed her to release a huge shock wave through the divine bracelet. It also began to reveal that Diana is not the same as the average Amazon. In the comics, after Diana was released with divine power, Hippolyte specially asked Hervistos to create Diana’s exclusive divine bracelet, which was also precious from Zeus’s sheepskin shield.
This god-level bracelet and Diana’s natural power, the power and influence have been greatly upgraded, and the shock wave released is even greater. In the final battle of the film, Ares also revealed another skill of the Divine Bracelet, which can connect the power of Zeus. When Ares gathered lightning to call Diana, Diana’s bracelet absorbed these forces very well and borrowed the power of Zeus to double back and directly put Aris KO.
