Hippolyta (Marvel)
Real Name: Hippolyta
Search for 'Hippolyta (Marvel)' on Amazon

Hippolyta possesses greater strength, stamina and resistance to injury than any other Olympian goddess. She has superhuman strength(Class 50) and above average prowess in armed and unarmed combat taught by Ares himself. In addition, she can further enhance her strength by donning the Gauntlets of Ares. These grant her close to Class 100 strength, but they are only effective in combat. They do not grant strength unless used in a fight against another. Her girdle was also a highly sought-after item.

Hippolyta is the daughter of the war-god Ares and Otrera, a daughter of Zeus. Raised in the arts of warfare, she and her sisters became ruthless in ancient times for attacking and destroying the villages of Ancient Greece, killing men and abducting female children to indoctrinate into their order.
In modern times, Pluto, god of the dead, reunited many of Hercules's old foes against him. Hippolyta, however, wished not Hercules' death, but rather his love. They duped him into signing a contract to remain in Hades by posing as a movie producer and an actress, but he was freed with Thor's aid.Hippolyta and Ares were recruited by Pluto to marry Hercules and Aphrodite into marriages that would bind them from interfering in anymore of his plans to conquer Olympus. Zeus withdrew his edicts for the marriage once he realized what Pluto was up to. The confrontation also served to unite the short-lived team of the Champions (of Los Angeles).
Years later, Hippolyta formed a street gang out of female runaways called the Bacchae. After the group ran across the Fantastic Four, she joined them in infiltrating FF Headquarters where she clashed with the female warrior Caledonia and abducted her to Hades to humiliate her. Caledonia's friends and young wards came to her rescue and retrieved her from Hades.

Ares and Pluto, formerly sought Hercules as her lover
