Robert Kanigher (Story) Ross Andru & Mike Esposito (Art & Cover). "The Secret Origin of Wonder Woman". Shortly after the birth of Diana, daughter of Queen Hippolyta, Paradise Island is visited by Aphrodite the Goddess of Love, who comes to wish the young Diana well, and tells the infant girl that she will grow to be the fairest maid in all the land. The baby would be visited also by Athena, who would give her wisdom, Mercury who would be amazed at the tot's speed, as well as Hercules who is impressed by the girl's strength.
Time passes, and eventually conflict would claim the lives of all the men of Amazonia and the women would be in utter woe. Seeking to escape the conflict of the mainland, Queen Hippolyta would rally the rest of the Amazons and announce that they would be leaving, to escape the wars and find peace on an island far, far away.Impressed by this display, her fellow Amazonians would begin calling her Wonder Girl. Eventually they would pass through a strange fog of sleeping gas. While most of the Amazonians would be knocked out by the gas, Wonder Girl would resist its caustic vapors and push onward, sailing them to safety.
They would soon pilot out of the gasses and Wonder Girl would spot an island. As the others revive, they would go to shore where they would be visited by Athena.
Athena would tell the women gathered that this island, dubbed Paradise Island, would be their new home, and that as long as they stayed there they would retain eternal youth under the condition that nobody leave the island. Over the years, young Diana would help her fellow Amazons build a new home, and spend her time exercising, having fun, and riding the Rocs, which were giant birds, native to the island, and also mastering all forms of science and languages. One day while out swimming with her fellow Amazons, Wonder Girl and the others would be terrorized by a giant whale. Wonder Girl would use her superior strength to send the whale packing, saving her friends.
The entire exploit would be photographed and be the first record of the illustrious career of the girl who would eventually grow up to be Wonder Woman. "Wonder Woman" Movie in Theaters June 23, 2017!
