Cernunnos is a Celtic god of fertility, life, animals and the Hunt. He was worshiped by the Celtic people of the British Isles, in ancient times. He appears as a man with stag like horns and legs. Once Batman was obliged to fight Cernunnos. 
He was summoned to posses a mortal agent of the Dark Man, a minion of The Morrigan. After the Dark Man's defeat at the hands of Wonder Woman and her mother Hippolyta, they reported to the Morrigan. However, they were turned to stone by the head of Medusa. 
The Morrigan, restored the agents to life, and transformed him into Cernunnos and became the Minotaur. They were sent to seek out and kill Wonder Woman under any circumstances. Cernunnos was the first to attack, finding Wonder Woman outside the home of a woman she was helping financially. Wonder Woman was unaware of his presence, allowing him to shoot the heroine in the shoulder with an arrow.
