Wonder Woman #177 (2/2002)
The Paradise Island of Themyscira was restored by the returned Amazonian goddesses, who had been incommunicado while battling evil gods. Wonder Woman was impressed, but not so much as to be unable to ask more of the goddesses. Diana wished to incorporate more of what good Man's World had to offer.
"And soon, the invisible jet goes forth across the globe... handing out invitations to some of the greatest minds and powers on the planet... to contribute to the triumphant rebuilding of the Amazons' island home.
Architect Henri Claude Tibet... Harvard professor Julia Kapatelis, spiritual daughter of the Amazon Pythia... J'Onn J'Onzz, the Martian Manhunter, and Kimiyo Hoshi, known to some as Doctor Light... Decorated pilot and engineer Steve Trevor, after whose mother Diana was named... all come together with ideas, technologies, and powers, under the Amazon master designer Kaleeza Fashed."
Weeks later, with the help of the sentient alien Wonderdome's techno-biology, Themyscira was reborn as a hi-tech hovering kingdom. For her efforts, Diana had her title of princess restored, and her deceased mother Hippolyta returned briefly to grant her blessings.
