The Amazons were a race of immortal super-women that lived on the magical Paradise Island. Favored by Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, the Amazons thrived in peace for centuries, but remained aloof from the world of Man. The youngest and most powerful of the Amazons, Princess Diana, left her protective nation of sisterhood, renouncing her immortality to fight the forces of evil in Man's World as Wonder Woman.
Eventually, the Amazons were forced to leave Earth as their magic was exhausted after their 10,000-year stay on Earth. For this reason, they went to another dimension to rest and renew their powers, but Diana chose to remain on Earth, relinquishing her Amazonian powers.
