For a glorious twenty years he ruled over his Amazon sisters preaching peace and love. He even opened the borders of Paradise Island to the rest of Man's world. The perfect utopia was available for all to enjoy, but now, Themyscira was under attack on the very shores that were once closed to the feet of man.
"Themyscira will not fall while I am King!" Tristan promised. While his powers were almost nonexistent he was still a deadly warrior who should not be trifled with.
He was surrounded by his Amazon council, they were his inner circle. These were not only the fiercest of the Amazons, but also thd smartest and most experienced in combat. His three daughters were among them, the Princesses of Themyscira.
"Then we shall fight!" Artemis declared. Artemis had become Tristan's personal Champion when he chose to give up his powers. She fought for him and was willing to die in his honor. She raised her sword into the air. Every Amazon in the room joined her. They were al

Arrows rained down by the hundreds. It did not take long for Artemis to rally her Amazon sisters and take a full frontal assault against their attackers. By the hundreds, fully armored men stormed the shores of Themyscira. They wore battle armor similar to the Amazons and seemed to have the same kind of warrior's fire the Themysciran women had as well.
"Amazons!" Artemis shouted over the noise of rushing war. "Attack!" she commanded with her sword pointed towards the enemy. She pulled on the golden reins of the Pegasus and flew directly towards the heart of the enemy's swarm. With a great swipe of her blade Artemis took the heads of four of the male warriors clear off.
A wave of angry women followed her down her path with their swords raised. By the hundreds the Amazons stormed into battle. But this was not an epic battle like David versus Goliath. This was a war of the century! While one man would fall on the battle grounds, he took with him two Amazons.

WONDER WOMAN vs RED PANZERWith things quiet in the city, Elissa often looked to other areas where her presence could be more useful. Gotham was a clear choice, but with Batman there she was nervous about even approaching that city for fear of another confrontation with him. Little was known about him and he did not seem to have any special powers or abilities yet still he put the fear of the Gods into her, and in that respect she found herself envious. She still had not met Superman face to face and often thought about making the six hour drive to Metropolis to do just that, though that always remained on the back burner.WONDER WOMAN vs RED PANZER5 years ago in Drama More Like This

He doesn't turn around. He's not sure he can let himself. He's not sure he would resist the urge to touch her, if he looked.
His breath dies in his lungs for a one moment, when he feels her hot lips on his nape.
He tries to regain his composure. Tries to speak. Tries to warn her.
She slowly makes her way around him. Her lips move across his bare shoulder, her fingers travel down his back, passing a soft fracture of few bandages.
When she is in front of him, he's not sure he's still breathing.
He can feel smoothness of her hair when she kisses his collar bone. The tips of her fingers examine every muscle of his chest and stomach. They caress every scar beneath them.
Her mouth finds its way along his jaw. Every breath she takes is like the fire on his skin.
He doesn't move even an inch.
Some voice, painful and hard voice, reverberating in the back of his mind, tells him that this is wrong. That he should push her aw

The Pandora Paradox
First off there’s the element I call the Pandora Paradox. Marston had the myth of Pandora in mind when choosing Diana’s origins. For those who are fuzzy on the myth, Pandora was created from clay by Hephaestus, god of the forge and given several unique gifts by the gods. Pandora was actually created as a punishment for the sins of the Titian, Prometheus. Prometheus had tricked and robbed the gods of Olympus twice and given the sto

Top Ten Myths About The AmazonsTop ten myths about the Amazons.Top Ten Myths About The Amazons2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
1) Amazons are purely a myth.
This is purely a false statement. Evidence from the ancient world provides documents of a matriarchal society in Asia Minor run by a queen. This society was the location of Amazonia, the ancient kingdom of the Amazons. There are records suggesting that this civilization run by women was a powerful force in the ancient world. Babylonian, Greek, Roman, and even Egyptian texts suggest that many countries including Troy were allies and enemies with Amazonia. There is also historical evidence that these women came from the north from the land that is now Russia. Even Alexander the Great is recorded meeting with an Amazon Queen during his trips through Asia Minor.
2) The Amazons hated men.
This statement is also a false myth stated in Greek culture more than Greek text. In the ancient world, women in power were viewed as evil or dangerous. Greece was a society ruled by males. A culture with a woman in power wou

Atlas smiled as he flexed the muscles beneath the high tech fabric that made up his t-shirt. She was 25, totally hot, as dumb as a brick, and had no idea he was barely 16.

He was tall for his age and the thick, rippling muscles that covered ever inch of his body tended to throw most people off.

The next morning was a day of celebration throughout Themyscira. Much pomp and circumstance was made for this tournament as they rarely happen, and for such a cause to go to man's world. At the great Coliseum the stands were filled as nearly every Amazon on the Island attended. If one noticeable Amazon was missing, it was Princess Diana as her seat next to her mother's was empty. The 16 contestants stood in the center all standing in 4 rows. The queen stood in her perch and announced.
"If you are all ready, then let the Tournament begin. There will be four challengers to choose the winners. The runner up will take the female survivor to her true love, while the winner will return the male to America. As you know only the runner up shall return to Paradise Island, but the Gods demand that only the Strongest, wisest, and best of you sisters be honored with this self-sacrificing task, and may the best maiden win."

With time she learned how to live between people and how to communicate with them, or at least try to do so. She was studying people's habits and traditions. She looked at the humanity with curious eyes.
She learned that Earth needed its heroes, needed her. She realised why it did and as time went by she got attached to Man's World.
She was learning fast, using that magnificent mind of hers. She wanted to understand everything she was seeing and discovering and it came to her easily. Until one point.

But today, she had a plan. Or so she had thought at first. She was mediating. Starfire was bored. And no doubt, Starfire would try to get her to do something sterotypical. Clothes shopping. Talking. Hanging out. Hanging out clothes shopping. Talking about clothes shopping. Teenage girl stuff that Raven had no time for.

Yesterday, on Wednesday, August 31st, DC Comics scrapped its entire publishing line for September in order to reinvigorate itself with a reboot or a relaunch, as they're calling it. This historic event consists of the release fifty-two first issues in a span of one month, starring rejuvenated versions of its iconic comic book heroes, such as Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, etc, and a storyline that had been previously rebooted twenty-five years earlier in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTH. Fan reaction has been mix, from massive issues like the paraplegic Oracle walking out of her wheelchair to the tiniest issues like Wonder Woman having retractable pants.
While I personally disapprove, strongly and pessimistically, of this reboot for countless reasons that are my own, the NEW FIFTY-TWO has started with a bang, whether good or bad and is, t
