Overview

Artemis is a member of the Olympians a group of humanoid beings that hale from the pocket dimension; Olympus. She was worshipped by the humans of Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. Goddess of the hunt,[1][2] the moon,[2] wild animals,[2] wilderness,[2] virginity,[2] childbirth[2] and young women[2]

Early Life

She was the daughter of the Titaness Leto and Zeus. After she was born he helped her deliver her twin brother Apollo.[3] As Zeus' jealous wife Hera prohibited Leto from giving birth on solid group by mystically compelling all the interconnected lands to reject her, she took refuge and [3] had to deliver the twins on the floating island of Delos.[4] To show her gratitude, Leto would later secure Delos with four pillars.[4][3] The siblings soon discovered their natural talent for archery and, using arrows forged by Hephaestus, slew the Earth-serpent Python that Hera had sent to attack Leto.[3][4]

Ancient Greece

Artemis and her brother later joined the Olympians on Olympus being worshipped by the humans of Ancient Greece.[3]

Roman Empire (146 BC–324 AD)

In 146 B.C., the Romans conquered Macedonia and then Greece. They even adopted Olympian Gods, changing many of their names in the process.[5] Artemis became "Diana".[5]

Modern Age

When her father Zeus was angry with the Avengers because his son Hercules was beaten into a coma while serving with them, he had several of his children attack and abduct the superhero team.

Artemis was sent to abduct the Wasp from the small Caribbean island she was vacationing on. She attracted the Wasp's attention by transforming into a deer and drawing her into the undergrowth, before firing a magical arrow at her. The Wasp shot the arrow with a bio-electrical sting, vaporizing it, but the dust created knocked the Wasp out and Artemis took her to Olympus.

In New York and on Olympus, Artemis clashed with the Avengers, and with several of her siblings (including her twin, Apollo) who had taken the Avengers' side against Zeus. Eventually Zeus came to his senses and called off his children, including Artemis. Artemis was subsequently in attendance when Zeus decreed that no Olympians would set foot on Earth again, though many of them have since done so.[6]

No Road Home

Because of the events of Avengers: No Surrender, the Goddess Nyx escaped imprisonment, vowing revenge on Olympus. She arrived with her children and they set out to murdering all the gods that were there, including Artemis. [7]

Rebirth

After her apparent death, Artemis and the other Olympians who died during the events of Avengers: No Surrender, were reincarnated and revived into their "true" forms within the "space beyond space" due to the fact they were fundamental myth aspects of reality and could never truly be killed.[8]

Superhuman Durability: Artemis' body is highly resistant to physical injury than the body of a human. She is capable of withstanding extreme temperatures and pressures and virtually all toxins, corrosives, punctures or concussions without sustaining injury.[9] While she can be rendered unconscious, it is extremely difficult to injure her - for instance, the highest voltage of electricity that would kill multiple humans would only knock her out.[9] Only incineration or dispersing most of her bodily molecules can kill her, and even then her disembodied life essence might survive unharmed, potentially subject to resurrection by mystical means or by a higher power such as Zeus.[9]

She is able to generate energy from her body in order to heal the injuries of other beings. She is also capable of channeling these energies into creating plagues. Artemis can travel back and forth between the dimensional realms of Earth and Olympus. She seems able to conjure objects or creatures linked to her at will - making her bow appear as needed, or making animals such as her sacred deer and hunting dogs appear or disappear.[9]

  • Limited Weather Manipulation: Like other Olympians, Artemis has some control over the weather - in one case causing severely stormy conditions at seas for days.[9]
  • Invisibility: Artemis can become invisible and inaudible to mortals at will and can render others temporarily invisible with her touch.[9]

Flight: Artemis can levitate and fly, but seldom employs this ability, perhaps because of her zealous devotion to physical athleticism.[9]

Abilities

Master Archer: Artemis is an master archer with millennia of experience, she often carries a golden bow and usually wears a quiver full of arrows, either strapped to her back or slung at her hip. Her arrows can pierce virtually any target, even the Hulk's invulnerable skin,[10] and at least some of her shafts are enchanted. She has used golden arrows that can return to her hand after piercing their target, and these same arrows can even fell immaterial foes such as energy beings by inflicting severe psychic pain. She has also used silver shafts that change course in mid-flight to follow their targets and explode into a cloud of glowing, clinging dust that numbs a target's mind and dilutes his or her willpower, leaving the target semi-conscious and compliant. A huntress of unparalleled skill, Artemis has extensive experience hunting and tracking humans, gods and animals, especially in wilderness settings.[9]
