Diana was a clay figure created in the form of a human baby girl by Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons on Paradise Island, who was granted life by the will of the gods in the year 1941. She was given superhuman abilities such as great strength and speed by the gods themselves. When she became a young adult, Aphrodite appeared unto Hippolyta to tell her that she must send the strongest Amazon maiden to help fight the war and crush evil in the outer world. Hippolyta then held a tournament for all Amazons to participate in in order to choose the strongest among them to send to the United States. However, though Diana wanted to participate, her mother forbade her from doing so, saying that the winner will have to give up her birthright of eternal youth and beauty. Nonetheless, Diana participated in the tournament as a masked contestant and won, revealing herself to be Diana afterward. Though deceived, Hippolyta nonetheless conceded to the wishes of the gods and gave her the costume and armaments of Paradise Island's representative to the outer world, who would become known by them as Wonder Woman. She became one of the founding members of the Super Friends.
