Home of the Amazons, Themascyra remains the last hold out of the Greek Pantheon. Ones powerful, the Greek gods were killed during the Ragnarok, in 1652. The amazons rallied with the other Pagan Devotees, and despite the absence of their patrons, were able to drive the Demon Hordes out of the middle planes and back into hell. Then, at the behest of their Mysterious Green Lantern allies, agreed to keep the location of Themascyra a secret, and safeguard the collection of artifacts salvaged from the fall of Olympus.
The Riots of ’69 proved too much for the Amazons, and they curtly informed the Green Lanterns that they could walk the Path of Cowards alone. The other mystical powers followed quickly after, joining mundane authorities that had already rejected UN mandates regarding mutant treatment. The Amazon attack on the St. Petersburg Gulag garnered particular fame, and inspired many Green Lanterns to join the fight, regardless of the dictates of their mysterious masters.
