Look to the stars, for hope burns bright

"If the prospect of living in a world where trying to respect the basic rights of those around you and valuing each other simply because we exist are such daunting, impossible tasks then what sort of world are we left with? And what sort of world do you want to live in?" - Wonder Woman, Diana of Themyscira

Amazing Amazon Trivia #4

In 2011, one year after the Justice League was founded, a mercenary called Bane broke Batman’s back after a brutal fight in Wayne Manor. After much debate, Bruce was taken to Themyscira, where Amazon surgeons repaired the damage that had been done. As the full recovery and therapy would take six months, each member of the League swore to keep an eye on Gotham during his absence. During his time on Themyscira, he met Io, an Amazon doctor and blacksmith, who was also Diana’s former girlfriend.

The fourteen year old Dick Grayson, aka Robin, found some unlikely help during this time without his mentor’s guidance: Barbara Gordon, who took on the name of Batgirl. When Bruce fully recovered and assumed the mantle of Batman again, he told Barbara he wouldn’t let her continue to fight crime, as she was the daughter of one of the few friends he had. Barbara refused to back down, and to this day continues to operate as Batgirl, with or without Bruce’s support. When Bruce told Diana of this, the Amazon couldn’t help but applaud the young woman for her determination and intelligence, much to the dark knight’s irritation.
