Issue #1 begins with the birth of the universe, and with it, the birth of Titans and Gods. With the formation of human civilisation came the rise of the Amazons, their respective culture, and eventual society. Throughout their history, the Amazons have fought in various battles and have served the gods to the point of some women being granted immortality. As the centuries passed on, the Amazonian Queen, Hippolyta, found herself yearning for something more than just eternal life: the gift of motherhood. Her pursuit of motherhood has caused her to make mistakes that brought her into conflict with those who followed her, but still retained the respect of her people.
As mortal Amazons were blessed with daughters every ten years to keep Themysciran society thriving, the Queen's yearning for a daughter of her own only got stronger, until one day, her wish was granted. Blessed with a daughter of her own, Queen Hippolyta raised her little girl the way she felt would benefit her most. However, something on the island is troubling the young Princess Diana into questioning her role within her respective society, leading her to disobey her mother's rules and actually explore the island outside of city walls. What she finds outside the city not only piques her curiosity and frightens her, but brings her into contact with possibly the second most important person in her life: the warrior Alcippe!
