Zeus is the ruler of Mount Olympus and the father of most of the Gods of Olympus, as well as Wonder Woman. In an attempt to prevent his daughter Diana from finding her way back to Themyscira he ordered the sons of Ares, Phobos and Deimos, to implant false memories in her head.[1]

New 52

Wonder Woman Vol 5 1 Textless
DC Rebirth Logo

This section of the history takes place during the New 52, between the events of Flashpoint and DC Rebirth. It was later revealed that much of Wonder Woman's history from this time was an elaborate illusion created by the Gods of Olympus to keep her away from Paradise Island. All or part of this section may have been part of that illusion and no longer valid in Rebirth.

In Diana's delusion, Zeus hatched an elaborate plan with his daughter, Athena, to ensure multiple goals. They wanted to lure out the First Born, saw the need for War to be replaced, and knew it was Wonder Woman's time to come forward. Zeus was to disappear, and unbeknownst to all, reborn as a baby to Zola who herself was the incarnation of Athena. The power vacuum and the ensuing bickering allowed them to achieve their goals, eventually.[2]
