"Never let your guard down! You expect the battle to be fair! A battle will never be fair!"
—Antiope to Diana

Antiope (d.1918) was the General of the Amazons, sister of Queen Hippolyta and Lieutenant Menalippe, and aunt of Princess Diana.


Early LifeEdit

Arrival of Man on ThemysciraEdit


Antiope is a very beautiful Amazonian woman: standing at five ten, to six-feet tall, with tan skin, blue eyes, blonde hair that is pulled back into a ponytail and an athletic physique.

Dressed in her warrior garb, Antiope wears a dark brown armor on her upper body. Unlike her sisters, she doesn't wear a skirt - instead she wears a short loincloth on her front with a split pads on her sides and on the back, knee high dark brown armored combat boots with stockings covering most of her thighs. Antiope wears a strap across her chest to carry her bows and a shoulder pad on her right shoulder. Going into battle, Antiope wears a gold and brown headpiece. Antiope also wears her brown Bulletproof Bracelets.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

As an Amazon, Menalippe has numerous natural abilities supposedly granted to them by the Gods of Olympus:

Weakness Edit

  • Limited Invulnerability - Although the Amazon's has nigh-invulnerability, this is only to blunt objects or blunt force trauma, such as a powerful blow from a super-strong opponent. Sharp objects, such as knives and bullets can pierce her skin like they would any other human's, which is why her combat armor and bulletproof bracelets are such crucial parts of the Amazon's weaponry.


  • Bracelets of Submission - two specialized incredibly durable gauntlets that all Amazons wear, in order to compensate for their vulnerability to sharp objects and bullets.
  • Antiope's Sword - a magical Amazonian sword that Antiope wields in battle. Due to its nature, it is one of the few weapons that can actually injure the otherwise invulnerable Superman.
  • Antiope's Shield -  a magical Amazonian shield that Antiope uses to protect herself from other weapons and energy blasts (in tandem with her bracelets). It is virtually indestructible, capable of deflecting even a tremendously powerful energy attack.
  • Antiope's Armor - Amazonian armor bestowed upon her by the Gods when she was created to protect man's world.
  • Antiope's Bow and Arrows, and Daggers - Amazonian forged weaponry that Antiope wields in battle, and in training Diana over the years.



  • Robin Wright was rumored for the role of Hippolyta after after the press release for Wonder Woman was revealed. TheWrap confirmed that Robin Wright's character was almost rewritten as Hippolyta before Connie Nielsen was cast.
