Wonder Woman: Encyclopedia of Villains

First Appearance: Wonder Woman 2 (1942 )
Creators: William Marston and H.G Peter
Abilities: Based on the Greek mythological figure (and the Roman counterpart, Mars), he is the Olympian God of War: immortal and virtually indestructible with all the supreme powers one can expect from a god.


Backstory: Ares has been Diana’s constant antithetical foe throughout the eras, and as a master of discord, who provokes fury and slaughter with his very presence, he is determined to thwart her mission of peace and understanding, but during the Gold, Silver and Bronze Ages, he was first known by his Roman mythological name: Mars.

His debut sees Mars seeking to realize his vision of eternal war and conflict in the world of man, but he is opposed by Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who seeks to realize a loving civilization. The men who worship Mars lie, cheat, steal, kill their weaker brothers, and sell women as slaves. When Ares taunts Aphrodite with his success, she answers by creating a new race of women to contend: the Amazons, stronger and more fearless than Mars’s men and fully upholding “Aphrodite’s Law”.

Mars retreats to the planet Mars with his chief deputies, the Duke of Deception, the Count of Conquest, and the Earl of Greed, where he enslaves Martians and the spirits of dead alike, by ferrying souls to the planet and implanting them into Martian bodies. He then tortures, humiliates or trains them as soldiers to fight in future wars. Mars then continued to tangle w/ Diana and the Amazons during the Gold, Silver and Bronzes Ages to start conflict and subdue the Gods of Olympus.

Post-Crisis, he was re-established as Ares, son of Zeus, worshipped by many on Earth as a god of Olympus (who never quite fit in). Eventually, faith waned and the gods stepped back from regularly interfering with humanity; But centuries later, the God of War returned to renew his crusade to provoke confrontation. And once again, Aphrodite and the Amazons stood in his way.

Throughout history, he has worn many faces and borne many names all possessing a never-ending hunger for destruction, growing stronger on malevolent psychic energy, and (often with the help of The Children of Ares), consistently encouraging war through his manipulation of mortals—which, of course, always brings him into conflict with the Amazons and their champion, Wonder Woman.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman 153 (1965)
Creators: Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru
Abilities: A divinely empowered gorgon with the infamous ability to turn a living creature to stone, she is also a fierce combatant with a hypnotic voice, genesistic blood, and the power of possession.


Backstory: Based on the tragic Greek mythological figure, destined for torment and death, Medusa is a child of the Goddess Ceto, one of the three daughters of the sea, and mother to Pegasus. Prized for her beauty, she is assaulted by Poseidon and then ultimately cursed by Athena out of spite, transforming her into a deadly, macabre creature…and we all know how that story ends: a beheading.

Her comic debut would replace her mythic victimizers with Wonder Woman’s longstanding foe, the Duke of Deception.
Medusa was targeted by the Duke, and using his Martian technology to mar Medusa’s beauty, he transformed her into a frightening snake-haired entity with a fatal gaze. Forsaken, Medusa traveled the streets of Greece to exact her rage, with her subsequent ghost returning to menace others.

Her origin is later updated to include her sisters, along with Poseidon and Athena. Still beheaded by Perseus, Medusa’s heart was later used by Phobos, the god of fear, to create the villain Decay who would attack young Vanessa Kapatelis and battle Wonder Woman. Eventually, at the request of her sisters, Euryale and Stheno, Medusa is brought back to life by the immortal sorceress, Circe, resulting in one of Wonder Woman’s most iconic storylines.

The wrathful gorgon, wronged and vilified until she became the monster society had cast her to be, she had Diana’s sympathy; But Medusa’s rage had taken a personal toll on Diana, leaving the Amazon champion no choice but to meet her opponent in combat, where Diana would prove once and for all the depth of her convictions.

After New 52, Medusa would go on to become the Queen of Monsters, and even take up residence in Gotham. More recently, as a prisoner in her immortal life, Medusa attempted to escape through Doom’s Doorway, seeking revenge against the Amazons for the years of captivity and torment she suffered in Tartarus, an infernal realm of Hades.

First Appearance: Sensation Comics 2 (1942)
Creators: William Marston and H.G Peter
Abilities: Doctor Poison is an expert in the use of poisons, toxins, and plagues, and in addition to her scientific expertise, is now a trained soldier.


Backstory: One of Wonder Woman’s oldest villains, Dr. Poison’s origin has a wartime theme, like many of the era: a dark and devious scientist with a knack for creating destructive state-of-the-art toxins. Her identity has seen alterations over time (4 so far), but she continues to be a dangerous threat to the world—her specific skill set and consistent military ties allowing her to remain disturbingly relevant in modern times.

Originally the Chief of the Nazi Poison Division in league with German spies, Dr. Poison wore a mask and a bodysuit that hid her identity and made her gender ambiguous, but at the end of her debut story, she was revealed to be a Japanese princess appropriatly enough named Maru, the Japanese word for poison. Her debut toxin was a drug called ‘Reverso’, which altered a victims brain to do the opposite of what they were told- particularly troublesome when used against military troops reliant on orders to advance, retreat or stand down. Dr. Poison is ultimately captured and forced to give up the antidote, but would go on to other comic appearances and villainous team-ups with several of Diana’s most notable adversaries.

Other inventions concocted by Princess Maru included anesthetic gas grenades, stadium quantity amounts of paralyzing gas, and a projectile toxin which could ‘poison planes’ causing them to abruptly drop from the sky to their destruction.


Post-Crisis, Doctor Poison was reintroduced to the pages of Wonder Woman as scientist Marina Maru, granddaughter of the original Doctor Poison. Marina would also wear a full bodysuit and beneath her mask was the same psychotic grin. We then learn of her grandmother’s fate: infected by Reverso, her growth patterns are disrupted causing her to grow younger, eventually regressing into a fetus and disappearing! As Marina puts it, “Horrible end…wonderful poison.” She was then updated during New 52 as a vengeful Russian scientist known only as Dr. Maru, whose parents were wrongfully imprisoned. She planned to take revenge against the government through chemical attacks, but Diana is able to stop her.

More recently, she has become Colonel Marina Maru, a soldier with physical scarring, who still deals in chemicals. Her family helps create a bio-agent that causes its victims to fly into a rage, killing anything in sight. While notably different than previous incarnations, Colonel Maru still looks the part—she even wore her version of the suit and cowl worn by the second Doctor Poison, complete with the caduceus over her eye, and would battle Diana once more.

First Appearance: Sensation Comics 79
Creators: Joye Hummel and H.G Peter
Abilities: Co-Ruler of the Sun Country, possession of powerful light based technology, leads an army of followers, possesses a ring which emits light that controls the emotions of others


Backstory: Hidden away deep within the Gobi Desert and surrounded by orange rock mountain lay hidden the secret Sun Country. A secret country which lay hidden away behind the nations technological wonders such as invisibility, force fields, and a powerful laser array which would disintegrate even atoms which came into their path.

In this nation where everyone had a twin, the land was jointly ruled by twin queens. Queen Solara, a just and peaceful soul who sought to keep to themselves and remain in hiding—And her twin sister Queen Leila, a more antagonistic and aggressive sort. She is her sisters opposite in virtually every way save for her unwavering love for her country. Where Solara wants peace, Leila wants war. Where Solara chooses to hide away behind their borders, Leila seeks to wage war upon the world which they fear.

Despite her best efforts, however, Leila being the far more harsh of the twin sisters, had very few amongst her people who sided with her. Thus Leila began plotting. Trying to twist the situation into her favor so that she could lead her nation into war with the outside world and use their advanced technologies to destroy and dominate the outside world which filled her people with fear.

In order to achieve this, Leila would leave the country in disguise and fooling people into looking into the Sun Country, would force her nations hand, driving an inevitable confrontation with Wonder Woman wherin Leila pretended herself to be the peaceful one of the two, leading to Wonder Woman going after Solara. An act which could instigate war, leading to Leila trying to rule the nation with a militaristic bent unopposed!

With the power of the Sun Countrys solar powered technologies which bend not only light, but emotions to their wills, Queen Leila was confident that nothing could stand in their way.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman 26 (1947)
Creators: Joye Hummel and H.G Peter
Abilities: The ability to train a fleet of tiger butlers. Possession of an elite corp of highly trained tiger butlers. Tiger haver. Tiger riding. Pressure Point hypnosis. Unintentional and uncanny ability to cause heart attacks.


Backstory: Woman who realized she was thematically named and decided to double down on it. Tigra Tropica possessed a passionate love and adoration for tigers which became her favorite animal. Loved more than anything else, including human beings.

So great was her passion for tigers that the wealthy woman upon inheriting her estate, proceeded to fire the staff and turn her land into a tiger preserve which a vast number of tigers called home.

Training the tigers to handle the day to day tasks of her mansion such as groundskeeping, cleaning, cooking, Tigra soon had a capable collection of refined and dignified tiger butlers who learned to thrive in the perilous jungle that is high society.

However maintaining a lavish richlet lifestyle while also supporting and caring for a large ambush of tiger butlers was a costly affair. Her finances evaporating before her eyes.

In an effort to remain afloat, Tigra would hatch a most ingenious plan which she was certain would not only restore her lost wealth, but fund a further expansion of more tigers. She would form a tiger butler rental service!

For Tigra Tropica was certain that everyone must love tigers as much as she did and once people learned the joys of having a tiger butler, they would never be able to do without.

Thus being a woman ahead of her time, Tigra Tropica would use the most subtle and ingenious of ploys, the surprise free trial. She would select a lucky recipient and they would wake up that following morning with a tiger butler of their very own. One who maintaining the strict rules of hired help, would strive to remain out of sight of guests while always being on hand.

Thus be it serving breakfast in bed, pressing a suit, or chauffering their client around, the tiger butlers would strive to provide excellent service. Mysteriously those clients were prone to reacting with abject terror to having their every step followed by a dutiful tiger. A reaction which Tigra Tropica assumed the fault of a natural fear of the poor.

After a week of being tended to, the tiger butler would then take their client to Tigra Tropica, who would explain that this wonderful service could be there for $50,000 a year.

And if someone was to busy screaming in abject about tigers, she would press pressure points in an individuals head to hypnotize them into accepting the amazing deal which they would have to be crazy not to accept.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman #186 (1969)
Creators: Dennis O’Neil and Mike Sekowsky
Abilities: Pet cat named Frimost can shapeshift into any animal. Has supreme magical ability allowing herself to bend and alter reality to her will. Invincibility.


Backstory: Hundreds of years in the past there was an all powerful sorceress known as Morgan Le Fay whose magic was beyond most mortal ken. A woman whose magical prowess made her a thorn in the side of Camelot for years.

Lesser known however is her daughter Morgana. An all powerful witch who dwarfs her mother in power, capable of rewriting all of reality should she so wish. Were it not for her bipolar and ADHD, she would be an unstoppable threat who would rule the universe with little effort.

However such an all powerful witch who so freely changes the world around her, herself changes far to often to do anything consistently. One moment she might decide to grant peoples wishes and cause someone to be adored by millions or make money rain from the sky.

Another moment she might be angry at someone urging her to get a haircut that she will send their razors to attack them for the crime of insulting her look. Controlling people to throw parades in her name or joust with sports cars. There was nothing beyond what Morgana was capable of achieving should she so wish.

However such an all powerful witch with such a tenuous grasp on concepts as feeble as reality rarely sticks around in one realm for long. Often growing bored over time and seeking out another layer of existence since traveling between them is effortless for one such as her.

Were someone to attempt to battle her with brute force, they would have the misfortune to discover that losing or being harmed are not concepts Morgana believe apply to herself, thus such efforts are doomed to failure as the very concepts are voided from reality.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman 9 (1944)
Creators: William Marston and H.G Peter
Abilities: Scientist with phenomenal strength (and size) rivaling that of Wonder Woman herself.


Backstory: One of Wonder Woman’s deadliest enemies, Giganta’s size and shape-shifting abilities are rivaled only by her scientific genius. In the Golden Age, however, “Giganta the Gorilla Girl“ was actually an artificially mutated ape, whom a scientist named Professor Zool transformed into a red-haired strongwoman of huge proportions. There aren’t many villains in Wonder Woman’s rogues gallery who are a match for the Amazon in a physical fight, but the woman called Giganta is one of them.

Caged away in the national zoo, was a huge creature know as the strongest in the world—ripping apart steel with ease and tossing people like rag dolls, yet, this incredible beast was overwrought with grief and wasting away after her daughter had perished the previous year. Giganta’s grieving motherly instinct would later kick in and she would imprint onto a young girl visiting at the zoo. Giganta destroyed her cage to snatch the girl to flee into the wild, refusing to ever be separated again.

Eventually Wonder Woman, would succeed in rescuing the girl, and Giganta, rather than being euthanized as a danger, was sent to the the lab of evolutionary ape enthusiast Proffessor Zool. Through experimentation Giganta became a giant of a woman with the incredible strength of a gorilla. Based on the principle that a regular woman could lift a bus if her daughter was in danger, her strength was magnified and swore revenge against Wonder Woman for stealing away her baby.

Post-Crisis on Infinite Earths, Giganta reappeared as Dr. Doris Zeul, a scientist who was dying from a rare blood disease. She captured Wonder Woman and planned to put her own “life-essence” into Diana’s body, but the process was interrupted and her consciousness instead ends up in a test animal gorilla named Giganta.

While still inside of the gorilla’s body, Dr. Zeul abducted a comatose circus strongwoman named Olga with metahuman size-changing abilities and successfully transferred her consciousness into Olga’s body, leaving Olga’s own mind stranded inside the gorilla.

Keeping the name Giganta, she embarked on a career as a super-villain, often for hire, fighting with Wonder Woman several times, both alone and with a variety of different villain teams. But through it all, Giganta has a tender side and briefly enjoyed a romance with the Atom. More recently, her origin was altered again. Doris Zeul became a child who was often bullied and afflicted with a rare blood condition. She was cured by a scientific procedure which also gave her size-changing powers, a side effect of which was a far more limited intellect.

Backstory: Karl Schlagel had been a heartless and merciless nazi scientist during World War 2. His focus being on psychic abilities, Karl would use the resources given to him in the form of large camps of victims to at his leisure, put under the knife, attempting to carve out the secrets of the mind.

Having murdered hundreds in his sadistic experiments to tap into the secrets of psychic power and earning the name ‘The Knife’, Karl Schlagel after the colapse of the nazi regime would migrate to the United States and live a life of comfort for decades without even having to change his name. Never having to pay for his crimes.

However Karl was not satisfied with what dark secrets he uncovered in his horrific research. Thus he continued his work while in the states. Taking advantage of societies penchant for ignoring the poor and impoverished, he would kidnap people off the streets, subjecting them to his experiments without anyone ever being alerted to his actions.

Over the course of thirty years of kidnapping and experimenting on the poor and the overlooked, Karl would discover that he could steal away the untapped mental powers of others so long as he targeted them before their brains fully formed. Thus he would turn his focus to abducting children, going on to create a machine which would drain the minds of his victims, in the process turning their bodies into hulking mindless monsters which obeyed his will.

With every child he kidnapped and irreversibly transformed into his mindless minion, The Knife would obtain a new psychic ability. Growing in psychic power as he consolidated and prepared to use these abilities to retstore the nazi regime and conquer the world.

Abilities: Ruler of the subartic seamen. Leader of the cult of the electric fire walrus. Capable of living in subzero temperatures. Can swim in artic waters.


Backstory: Deep under the ice of Antartica there was a mysterious land which mankind has been seeking out for millennia. The fabled Garden of Eden. In this divine land despite being buried under miles of ice, it was ever warm, sunny, and the rich garden thrived with tropical fruits all year round.

Surrounding the Garden of Eden was a moat of black ice water and an intricate natural cavern system in the ice where dwelled ‘the seal men’ a race of blue skinned humanoids who evolved from seals. Having evolved in the darkened caverns and waters beneath the ice, they could not stand the light of the garden of Eden least they go blind. But whenever the fruits from that garden fell into the waters surrounding it, the Seal men would feast.

In the present day the Seal men had formed a modern monarchy and named their domain ‘Bitterland’ Ruled by King Rigor, these Seal men sought any possible means of getting their hands on the fruit of the Gardens of Eden. Even making an effort to grow and harvest it themselves, though the light necessary to maintain the plants would render them blind.

However in the time between the Seal men coming into existence and the present day, the Garden of Eden had been found by the goddess Aphrodite who using that ancient of laws ‘Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers’ claimed it for herself. Thus traveling to the planet Venus where she was worshipped by the immortal fairies who ruled that world, she appeared before their ruler Queen Desira and declared her wish to grant a new land to her daughter.

Thus Princess Eve of the fairy folk of Venus would be brought to the Garden of Eden as its queen, renaming it Eveland which would eventually come to be inhabited by her children and her childrens children as fairies are born from the dreams and desires to have offspring.

King Rigor and seeing them as a potential slave labor, would have his men and his son use nets and hooks to try and pull the Evegirls out of Eveland and into Bitterland, forcing them to work the fields the Seal men had created. All the while also trying to appease their deity, the electric fire walrus who would consume the Seal men if not appeased.

Defeating both Steve Trevor and Mer-man who were engaged in one of their regular duels to the death as they fought over Wonder Woman like a pair of feral dogs over a chunk of beef, Amoeba-man in his guise as a knight would romance and woo Diana, attempting to get her when her guard was down so that his invasion force which encircled the planet could begin their invasion once she did.

Creators: Robert Kanigher and H.G Peter
Abilities: Genius inventor, can create and pilot a robotic duplicate of Wonder Woman which can rival her in strength and speed. Gun haver. Leads a criminal gang of criminals.


Backstory: Leader and scientific genius of an ill defined criminal gang based out of an underground bunker laboratory, Elektro turned his criminal mind towards the villainous efforts of creating a rival for Wonder Woman herself!

Elektro would succeed in the form of ‘Robot Woman’ a remote controlled robotic duplicate that looked like Wonder Woman and could replicate her physical feats.

Using Robot Woman, Elektro intended to commit crimes such as bank robberies and heists from the comfort of his hideout. Gloating over how any crimes commited by the robot duplicate would instead be blamed on the Amazon Princess. Thus not only would it allow Elektros crimes to go unnoticed, but it would do great harm to Dianas own reputation.

In terms of just physical ability, the robotic Wonder Woman was quite capable. Able to deflect bullets with bracelets, outrun conventional vehicles with ease, and smash through buildings without effort.

With Elektro operating the robot from a computer which somehow projects Robot Womans actions from a third person perspective, he was seemingly safe from the results of his own wrongdoing.

However cautious to a fault, Bushmaster will not hesitate to flee if things are not in his favor, using an array of escape methods planned in advance for any situation. Swearing to one day return once he developed a means of countering his foes strengths.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman 137 (1963)
Creators: Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru
Abilities: Strength proportionate to Wonder Woman. Flight. Ability to project a florescent paint. Built in radar. Sword haver. Ability to be instantly reassembled regardless of what damage she sustains.


Backstory: Across the vast reaches space and possibility lies many mysterious worlds and planets. One of which being an Earth identical to the one we know save for the fact that everyone is mysteriously a robot!

Every single individual on this world is a robot fashioned from plastic with physical abilities beyond the common man. Somehow aware of the world of flesh and blood, they would seek to replicate it.

The Robot Wonder Woman of this world noticing that they did not possess a Steve Trevor on their planet, would attempt to kidnap the real one. Driven by the need to make their world exactly the same.

However as Diana is busily rescuing Steve from this world, she would discover that Robot Wonder Woman and her Earth differed quite heavily from the Earth she was familiar with.

The most blatant was that for a world where any injury one may suffer no matter how grievous could be instantly repaired, life held little value. Thus little hesitation existed for something as final as murder for a people for whom such an act was only temporary.

Secondly, these robots never held any worship of the gods. Thus any of the restrictions which dictated the Amazons actions did not apply to them. So the world knew of Robot Wonder Woman and her people. The Amazons freely came and went from their island. Men would come and even stay on the island. And all of their contests and events were heavily commercialized with people from across the world coming to attend.

Most importantly from Dianas perspective, this Robot Wonder Woman lacked any sense of compassion or empathy. Garnering glee at the chance to slaughter those who opposed her and take whatever she wanted consequences be darned.

Backstory: Dr. Adrianna Anderson is the second character to use the monicker Doctor Cyber, the first having been affected by the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths, but she has emerged as the most powerful version of the villain yet. Once a human woman, Dr. Anderson is a renowned expert in the field of cybernetics, and a colleague and close friend to Dr. Veronica Cale, CEO of Empire Enterprises.

The focus of her work in Empire’s Research and Development department enabled her to create the Cyberwalker System, which she often used to assist Dr. Cale through a computerized holograph of herself.

Adrianna was eventually convinced by Cale, a sworn enemy of Wonder Woman, to use an experimental “cyber walker suit” to fight the Amazon. The suit, however, was damaged, and Adrianna’s mind was trapped within its systems as her organic body died. Her mind was later transferred to an A.I. system, where she was reborn as a digital construct, going by the name Dr. Cyber, considering herself no less than a “digital goddess”. This new version of Cyber continue to aid Dr. Cale in her plans against Wonder Woman, and became a member of the secret criminal organization know as Godwatch.
