Hippolyta is the Queen of the Amazons of Themyscira, and mother of Wonder Woman and a secret son, Jason. When Hippolyta found out she was pregnant with Zeus' children, she knew there was a chance one of them could be a boy, something that would be impossible to hide on Themyscira. Fearing Hera's jealous wrath, she contacted Glaucus to adopt her son if she were to have one in order to protect him.
