In addition, Artemisia greatly respects other noble selfless warriors While benevolent, Artemisia is a fierce warrior, and ruthless when facing her mortal enemies in battle as Wonder Queen.

PowersEdit

  • Divine Empowerment: Directly after she was born, several Olympian gods, including his father, granted attributes to Artemisia.
    • Superhuman Strength: Granted by Demeter (Goddess of the Earth). Artemisia is literally as strong as the Earth because of her link to the planet granted to her by Demeter. She is said to be "stronger than Hercules"? but Wonder Queen is not as strong as Superman himself.
    • Superhuman Durability: Granted by Demeter (Goddess of the Earth). Artemisia possesses a high resistance to damage and magical attacks. Her resistance to injury is not quite as great as any of the above mentioned metahumans. However, due to her vast threshold for pain and her amazon ability to heal at a superhuman rate, this easily makes up for the difference. She has withstood considerable bludgeoning damage in the form of hand to hand combat with metahuman opponents such as Superman. She has considerable resistance to human weaponries, though this is not absolute; Bullets can cause minor to moderate injury, but never life threatening.
    • Flight: Granted by Hermes (the Messenger God). Wonder Queen is capable of unassisted flight by gliding on air currents.
    • Superhuman Speed: Granted by Hermes (the Messenger God). She is able to think, react and move at superhuman speeds. According to Blue Cobalt, she can easily keep up with him if he is at regular cruising speed (but not at top speed).
    • Superhuman Reflexes: Granted by Hermes (the Messenger God). Wonder Queen's reflexes are far beyond the limitations of the finest human athletes. She has been able to react to a barrage of gunfire from multiple opponents at once unharmed. Batman noted that her reflexes are superior to that of Superman.
    • Superhuman Agility: Wonder Queens's agility is far beyond that of even an Olympic level athlete, as is her balance and coordination.
    • Superhuman Stamina: Wonder Queen can last a great deal of time in any fight and with virtually anyone. She doesn't tire out, as her body produces no lactic acids in her muscles.
    • Enhanced Healing Factor: Granted by Demeter (Goddess of Earth). Like the Earth, Artemisia is constantly renewing herself, allowing her to quickly heal mild to moderate injuries at an amazing rate. Her normal regenerative abilities allow her to recover from injury within seconds to minutes. She possesses an incredible immunity from poisons, toxins, as well as disease.
    • Empathy: Granted by Athena (Goddess of Wisdom). "The Sight of Athena" apparently grants her increased insight.
    • Charisma
    • Animal Empathy: Granted by Artemis (Goddess of the Hunt). Ability to communicate with all forms of animals (including dinosaurs) and her presence alone can bring a raging beast to a calm standstill.

      • Enhanced Vision: She also possess the "Hunters Eye" which allows her to always hit her mark. She can see to far greater distances than any normal human.

  • Wisdom of Athena: Granted by Athena (Goddess of Wisdom). Artemisia possesses great wisdom and intelligence, though the degree varies from author to author. She is among the smartest and wisest members of the Justice League of America, along with the Martian Manhunter and Batman.
    • Multilingualism: Artemisia has exhibited heightened proficiency with languages, being able to speak her native Themysciran, Ancient and Modern Greek, English, Pachto, Arabic, French, Chinese and Hindi. Plus, through precise muscle control, she can mimic other people's voices for short conversations (on the telephone). It is more difficult, for her to mimic a mans voice than another woman's voice.

WeaknessesEdit

  • Restricted Senses/Blindness: During a fight with Medusa, Artemisia was forced to blind herself with a snake's venom. Her eyesight was restored by Athena
  • Vulnerability to Piercing Weapons: Artemisia is extremely resistant to blunt force attacks and has a vast tolerance for pain. However, she is more vulnerable to piercing weapons, such as arrows and bullets.

EquipmentEdit

  • Amazonian Sword: Wonder Queen's extremely sharp magical Amazonian sword that she frequently wields in battle. Due to its nature, it is one of the few weapons that can actually injure the otherwise invulnerable Superman, with her having used it to cut off one of the latter's arms.
  • Bracelets of Submission: Modeled after the shackles the Amazons were once enslaved with. The gauntlets were formed from the remains of Zeus's legendary Aegis shield, and were re-forged for her use by Hephaestus. Artemisia's superhuman reflexes enable her to use the gauntlets to easily deflect projectiles (such as bullets) and powerful energy blasts from beings. She is even fast enough to protect herself from multi-vector attacks. At close-range the gauntlets block blades, weapons and punches. When crossed, the gauntlets generate a remnant of the Aegis itself, forming an impenetrable barrier just in front of them which allows Artemisia to protect herself and those behind her from area attacks.
  • Gold Armor:: for use in large battles, Wonder Queen has a golden body armor with chest plate, pteruges, greaves, an open visor helmet, and large, non-functional wings on her back.
  • Lasso of Truth: The Lasso of Truth is her signature weapon. Most who are captured in it are forced to answer any questions she asks and are unable to lie. It cannot be broken, snapped or cut. She can also control it to a certain degree using telepathy. It can also be used to erase memories, heal the mentally ill (in some cases), and implant commands that must then be obeyed.
