Wonder Woman

Synopsis: In antiquity, the Amazons defeat the war god, Ares, and Zeus charges them to hold him prisoner as eternally young warriors on the hidden island of Themyscira. Centuries later, US Air Force pilot Steve Trevor is lured to crash land on the island and the distraction of that trespass allows Ares to escape. In response, Princess Diana wins the responsibility to both take Trevor home and recapture the fugitive god. Steve Trevor offers to help and together this disparate pair must not only overcome Ares' efforts to achieve a bloody revenge, but also reconcile their own conflicting world views in an adventure that would be the first for the greatest of the female superheroes.

You seem as eager to meet me

on the battlefield...

...as you once did in the bedroom,

Hippolyta.

I only hope you prove more skilled

in this arena, Ares.

You need not worry for me.

This carnage feeds my soul.

Every arrow shot and life wasted

strengthens me...

...so that not even a woman scorned

will save mankind from my wrath.

For you may be the queen of the Amazons,

but I am the god of war.

You are most greedy on the battlefield,

Artemis.

My sword is thirsty, Persephone.

I intend she gets her fill.

As a rock on the seashore

he standeth firm.

The dashing of the waves

disturbeth him not.

In danger,

the courage of his heart sustaineth him.

And the steadiness of his mind

beareth him out.

I assure you, Alexa, a sharp blade

and a strong arm will do more good...

...than a quote from some philosopher.

I do not belong on this killing field, sister.

I am no warrior.

That you are not.

But if you cannot fight like an Amazon,

you will at least die like one.

You truly are hopeless,

aren't you, little one?

Persephone.

She now wears her courage.

Where is yours, Alexa?

Listen to the song of death Thrax plays.

Is he not a virtuoso?

I will forever be grateful to you

for this child you gave me.

I gave you nothing.

You forced him upon me like a curse.

Stay away from him, Hippolyta.

Stay away.

He is your flesh and blood too.

Allow me to reunite you with your son

in Tartarus.

Yield, Hippolyta.

Stay out of this, Zeus.

You will spare my son's life.

How dare you ask such a thing?

Look on this battlefield...

...stained red with the blood of my sisters

whom he enslaved for decades.

Women who have long

been loyal servants to you.

I am only carrying out the death sentence

he signed the day he betrayed me.

Do not challenge me, child.

My dear Hippolyta.

Do not let my husband anger you.

He can be a stubborn fool sometimes.

Even so, we must respect his wishes.

Ares will be allowed to live...

...yet shall not go unpunished.

You will keep him as your prisoner.

These bands will prevent him from drawing

upon the psychic energies of war...

...that give him his power...

...rendering him, in effect, mortal.

They can only be removed

by another god.

But my people, Hera,

they have lost so much.

Our men, our homes

and now our chance for retribution.

HERA:
Yes, but as I gave you the strength

to deliver yourselves from slavery...

...I shall now give you a new beginning.

A new home on an island paradise...

,,, where your people will be shielded

from the chaotic world of man,

There, you will be protected

from the ravages of time,,,

,,, and allowed to create a utopia,,,

,,, that you might reclaim

your purity of spirit,

And then the time will come

when your ancient prayer for a child,,,

,,, one not created through unholy union,

will finally be answered,

You know, Artemis, I found myself

saying a little prayer for you last night.

Did you, Diana? How kind?

Yes, I prayed that Apollo

would inspire you...

...with a strategy that might end your rather

long string of defeats at my hand.

Praise Apollo.

Obviously I'm not praying hard enough.

If you were not the queen's daughter.

Well done, Diana.

But be kind to Artemis.

Believe it or not, there was a time when

she was the fiercest warrior among us.

And still would be

given the chance in a real battle.

Then forgive me, Artemis, if I am grateful

that you will never be afforded that chance.

If that is indeed true, Mother,

then what is the point of all this training?

That is, other than to humble Artemis

from time to time.

We train because we must always

remain vigilant, Diana.

I once let my guard down

and paid a terrible price.

But, my queen...

...letting down our guard

is precisely what we must do.

And now, before yet

another century passes...

...is the time to reengage ourselves

with the old world.

Even if only to add some new material

to our library.

Perhaps Alexa's right.

Is it not possible man's world

has changed for the better?

Follow me, child.

It is only within this prison, Diana...

...that you can glimpse the true darkness

that lurks in the hearts of all men.

Ares, the god of war.

Do not fear.

She is right to be scared, Hippolyta.

You are a fool

if you think you can hold me forever.

I am more than a god.

I am a force of nature.

You are but breath and shadow.

This, Diana, is why we can never reunite

with the outside world.

It is better if you can accept

the nature of man as it is.

Wicked, disloyal

and above all, untrustworthy.

So we ever decide

what this mission's pucker factor was?

Well,

we're in the airspace of an unfriendly,,,

,,, who'd love the press

that would come with shooting Yankees,

I'd say we're dealing with a pucker factor

of eight. Maybe eight and a half.

Pucker factor?

PF measures the severity

of sphincter constriction in times of peril,

Charming.

Now, any further schooling you might need,

I'm happy to take you under my wing.

Don't fall for it, rook.

Zipper here is the kind of guy

mothers warn their daughters about.

Bandit, 6 o'clock.

You sure picked a hell

of a first mission, rook. Fangs up.

There appears to be some activity

in the skies above us.

It's strange, Artemis.

This silver mirror forged by Hephaestus...

...has kept us hidden away

from the outside world for centuries now.

And yet it's only

when I gaze through its frame...
