When the Amazon race is threatened, the Themyscirans capture ships on the high seas and copulate with men in order to procreate and keep the species alive. Instead of marrying each other at the conclusion of the mating ritual, they take their own lives and toss their bodies into the sea.
As the first Wonder Woman movie reveals, the Amazons are aware of the biological processes that lead to human reproduction: Diana casually mentions that one of the Amazons, a woman named Clio, wrote a 12-part treatise on sex and reproduction that concluded that men are necessary for reproduction but not for pleasure, which was published in the first Wonder Woman movie.
In the narrative mode, Wonder Woman, a member of the Justice League, is summoned to Themyscira by the parallel Ares, who informs her that her counterpart in the Regime is enlisting the Amazons to aid in High Councillor Superman’s scheme to instill dread throughout Metropolis.
The Amazons made an appearance in the 1974 television movie Wonder Woman, which starred Cathy Lee Crosby as Diana Prince. Asian and African ethnicities were represented, with the Ting and Dia being the most prominent.
Wonder Woman marshals the Amazons to face Circe’s Beastiamorph army in Metropolis, and the Amazons win the battle. Amazon Hoplite Minors, Amazon Hoplite Majors, Amazon Hoplite Spearmaidens, Amazon Archer Minors, Amazon Archer Majors, Amazon Panarchos, an Enchanted Statue, and Amazon Archer Spearmaidens are the Amazons’ foot warriors.
