    Default Diana's Armory and Amazon Tech and Artifacts

    Hey my fellow Amazons...I've been working on my Wonder Woman Series Bible Thingee and am cataloging the extra-special tools and weapons she and other Wonder characters have utilized over her entire duration as a character.

    So far I have:
    - Magic Lasso/Lasso of Truth
    - Bracelets of Sumbission (Amazons are Amazonium/Feminum & Diana's from the Aegis of Zeus)
    - Invisible Jet
    - Magic Sphere (Hippolyta)
    - Mental Radio
    - Magic Girdle/the Golden Girdles of Gaia (Hippolyta & Antiope)
    - Purple Ray
    - Winged Sandals of Hermes
    - Gauntlets of Atlas (at first their were two, but then later I think only written as one)
    - Mask of Proteus
    - Godkiller Sword (made by Hephaestus and showed up in Deathstroke)
    - Sword of Hephaestus (Hippolyta)
    - Lasso of Lightning (Cassie)
    - Lasso of Persuasion (Troia)
    - Donna Troy's original lasso (Promethium-made from StarLabs, IIRC)
    - Lasso of Submission (Superwoman of Earth 3)
    - Troia's Pendant of Cronus (no magical or mystical properties, unless I'm mistaken...)
    - Troia's Mystic Net from Oceanus & Tethys - it tamed the oceans and seas <shrugs shoulders>
    - Troia's Armor of Hyperion & Thia - it reinforced her strength
    - Troia's Earring of Iapetus & Themis - a reminder that fairness and justice must prevail
    - Troia's Bracelet of Phoebe - made up the sleeves and skirt of her costume (okay...)
    - Troia's Star Cloth of Mnemosyne and Creus - kind of a map of the heavens and pinpoints the location of the Titans of Myth
    - Bow of Ra (Artemis)
    - Golden Eagle/Screaming Chicken Armor (Diana & Hippolyta)
    - Silver Eagle/Screaming Chicken Armor (Donna Troy)
    - Bronze Eagle/Screaming Chicken Armor (Cassie)
    - Guns of Eros (Diana)
    - Magic Swords from Bracelets (Diana in the Azz run)
    - Boomerang Tiara (Diana)
    - Virgin Spear of Athena (Achilles Warkiller)
    - Armor of Zeus (Jason) - with powers from each Olympian
    - Spear of Hippolyta (Jason) - designed by Artemis and made by Hephaestus it's supposedly unbreakable and can be summoned out of thin air
    - Skin of the Nemean Lion (Heracles)
    - Golden Fleece (Olympian)
    - Lansinarian Shape-Shifting Tech

    It's unclear to me if the Shim'Tar armor has any extra-special properties, but I don't think the Golden Eagle armor did either, so I may want to add it.

    I also left off Cassie's DCnU Silent Armor as it's not really Amazonian or myth related (except for Trigon.)

    As far I know, neither Fury had any regularly-used weapons or tech and the same goes for Nubia and Nu'Bia. (Although the latter had Stone Gaze powers.)

    What am I missing from the Amazonian arsenal and who wielded it most often?

    Do you include the movie, tv series, Elseworlds stories and so on, or is this just the mainline comics?

    The Talisman of Harmonia (Pérez)

    Legends of Wonder Woman (Renae de Liz):

    Armlets of Artemis
    Chestplate of Hephaestus
    Tiara of Athena
    Boots of Hermes
    Girdle of the Amazons (gift by Zeus)
    Golden Lariat (made by Hippolyta)

    Thanks kjn! The Talisman of Harmonia is a good artifact to add.

    I’m kind of counting everything, but probably cutting out some redundancies as I settle on “my” version of Diana and the origin of her powers.

    Do you have any recollection of Diana’s labrys, shield, or helm in the Perez run had any extra properties? IIRC, they do not, but my memory may be faulty.

    WOW!

    Very nice Amazon list! If there is anything else, it escapes me at the moment.

    The Shim'Tar armor created and worn by Akila in the pre-Flashpoint continuity.

    Nubia's armor and sword from pre-crisis. Hessia possesses similar armor in Superman/Wonder Woman and a spear.

    Did any of these armors have any abilities or properties outside being metal and protective?

    I guess they’re similar to the Eagle Armor if they don’t.

    Nubias was made from the same metal as Wonder Womans bracelets as I recall.

    Since your counting things used by the Amazons which were not necesarily made by them would you also count inventioned Paula made to aid Wonder Woman like her teleporter, the shrinking device, the device for psysically entering the dreams of others?
    Oh and the venus girdles supplies by the queen of Venus

    I addition to what Fuzzy said, Hessia's armor was helpful in the fight against Doomsday.

    At least when it comes to Diana's equipment (bracelets, girdle, armlets, tiara, lasso, boots), it's probably of interest just to have all of the different names and origins of them.

    No idea. I don't think so, but I haven't done a close read of all of Pérez's stuff.

    What about those Purple Ray laser weapons that appeared in Rucka's run?

    Bronze Age Amazons had spacesuits made out of the same tech that the plane was made from. Also, Golden Age Wonder Woman had earrings that magically dispensed oxygen, and I think Mod-Wonder Woman's earrings were explosives of some sort.
