    Default Amazons Vs. Atlenteans - How Long Ago?

    In the new Aquaman movie, it appears Atlanteans is kind of advanced in both science, creatures, and fighting abilities.

    How do you think the amazons even managed to defend themselves against such odds?

    Skill. They did well with the WW1 soldiers. However, I would like for them to be advance in someways.

    The Amazons have an arsenal of weapons given to them by the gods. The "Godkiller" sword was just one of the many gifts the gods gave them.

    So great skill and experience plus divine weapons? That puts them on a pretty even playing field.
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    Hard to say considering movies and modern day comics tend to downplay the Amazons as having any capabilities whatsoever while the Atlanteans at the same time are being played up more and more

    Seriously though, it BEYOND annoys me that Atlanteans have somehow overtaken Amazons in the technical wonders most recently, but also Post-Crisis.

    So annoying that this fantastical aspect has been squandered for stagnation. Amazon scientists get no respect.

    In pretty much every field their established to be more powerful.
    The invulnerability and super strength that Aquaman enjoys? All Atlanteans apparently have that.
    But the Amazons it keeps flipping back and forth between them either having powers or being like ordinary unpowered types.

    The technology of the Atlanteans includes advanced buildings which can function beneath the depths and if necesary recycle oxygen from the water. vehicles and ships which can travel beneath the waves or in the air. Energy weapons from hand weapons to building destroying tanks.
    Yet the Amazons who used to be this technologically advanced society in pre crisis who had devised means to see through time, travel into space, pierce the dimensional veil, and invent incredible wonders have been reduced to being a backwards society which has made no advancments and developments to the point that the ancient Greeks had more technological wonders than their displayed posessing.

    And magic. The Atlanteans are established to have their own hogwarts which teaches people magic, allowing them to control water or command animals or turn into animals or just do general sorcery. Making them one of the largest groups of magic users in the DC universe.
    Meanwhile the Amazons never really had anything to do with magic at all with at most the occasional seer or witch popping up.

    Oh and the Atlanteans have an army of sea monsters at their beck and call which they can send to wreck people up if they so choose.

    Its laughable to see people people try to justify the Amazons being so badly depowered and weakened when the Atlanteans keep seeing upgrade after upgrade. Especially with DC going out of its way to erase the very notion that the island of the Amazons is in any way a paradise or a utopian society, insisting such a thing is impossible while giving the Atlantean stuff a thumbs up.

    Hence, why at this stage the easiest thing to do is grant all Amazons the same strength, speed and skill as WW and have basic mystical powers..that will greatly even the odds should there be a war.

    Also give them Pegasus, Unicorns, Griffins, other Greek and Roman mythological creatures, Kangaroos, Dragons, Invisible Jet, and Wonderdome.

    I agree, except with Wonder Dome and Kangaroos. I would prefer if the amazons bred mystical horses that were owned by Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, etc. bred with Pegasus...some of these horses can even run on water! Now that will be cool!

    Good points. I think the Amazons can definitely benefit from a tech upgrade as well more consistent displays of their enhanced physical capabilities.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!
