The queen of the Greek deities, Hera is the goddess of marriage, fidelity, and atmosphere, among other things, and resides on Mount Olumpus with most of the other Olympians. Hera and her fellow Olympian Gods once stood above all that lived as the most powerful beings on Earth. Hera and her godly brethren wielded the power to shape the lives of humankind, but as the Earth-bound mortals progressed and became more and more to be their own masters (and masters of their world), they began to turn slowly away from the Gods of Olympus. Over the centuries, the mortals turned away from Hera and the Greek gods as other gods replaced them and greater knowledge usurped them. Eventually, the general public of Earth came to believe Hera to be a fictional character of ancient myth, and were not aware of her existence. Today, the only place Hera and her brethren are remembered by the mortals are in the halls of museums and schools of antiquity. Hera and the Gods of Olympus are, however, still worshiped by the Amazons of Themyscira.

In Amazon #1, Wonder Woman (Ororo) invoked the name of Hera for protection.
