Wonder Woman immerses viewers into a young Amazonian woman, Diana’s story. Brought up in a traditional household, Diana always had a conflicting relationship with her mother, Hippolyta, when it came to fulfilling her desire to leave home for the battlefield.
Her aunt, Antiope, was her window of opportunity to escape. She trained her to become a superior warrior who would later rescue an American pilot (Steve Trevor), being pursued by German soldiers. With all her innocence and a burning desire to fight for just courses, Diana naively indulges herself in World War I.
After bravely extracting Steve’s true story from him and learning that the Germans are after him because he’s trying to thwart their plans of using poison gas to kill civilians and enemy soldiers, she decides to sneak out of the island with him to London. She believes that Ares, the god of war, is the cause of World War I and by fighting and defeating him, she will be able to put an end to it all. While at battle, Diana discovers her supernatural powers and has a hard time coping with the modern world and her new found powers and responsibilities.
