Synopsis
The Olympian goddesses create the Amazons to teach humanity the ways of Gaea. After the Amazons forget their purpose, and fall prey to the machinations of Ares, a group of Amazons led by Hippolyte rededicate themselves to their task. Time passes, and when Hippolyte yearns for the child she never had, the goddesses tell her to create a child from clay, which they animate, and whom the queen names Diana. After Diana has grown, the goddesses ask the Amazons to choose a champion to confront a new scheme of Ares'. Diana wins the competition to be champion and heads out into Patriarch's World.

But Phobos and Deimos, the masterminds behind the plot to bomb the Amazons, are not through with Diana.

Joining the two halves of the amulet, the group is instantly transported to a missile base where they face General Tolliver and finally Ares himself.
