In alphabetical order (with issue and date of first appearance and when or if they were involved in Villainy Incorporated, a league of Wonder Woman rivals founded by Eviless,[1] in which at one time or another most major Wonder Woman villains were involved).

Villain First appearance Description
The Angle Man Wonder Woman #62 (November/December 1953) Originally a clever schemer who "knew all the angles" known as Angelo Bend, the updated Angle Man possesses an object known as an Angler which can alter objects and locations according to the holder's wishes, sometimes defying gravity or through teleportation. The Angle Man was created as a recurring foil for Wonder Woman during the 1950s and 1960s.[2]
Ares Wonder Woman #1 (summer 1942) Ares, referred to by the Roman name Mars for most of the Pre-Crisis period, is the God of War and son of the Greek god Zeus. In the Post-Crisis timeline, Ares had plotted to start World War III, which led to Diana becoming Wonder Woman. In The New 52, Ares is mostly referred to as War and, in a major departure from the character's longstanding history as one of Wonder Woman's archenemies, is re-imagined as a benign supporting character.
The Blue Snowman Sensation Comics #59 (September 1946) Byrna Brilyant is a small town teacher and scientist who uses her late father's invention of "blue snow" for self-gain. Byrna disguised herself and unleashed the petrifying power of the blue snow upon the farming community of Fair Weather Valley, demanding each farmer's "life savings" in return for the chemical antidote that will free the crops, livestock, and people from the snow's effects. She was discovered in her mountain sanctuary by Wonder Woman, who forces her to defrost the valley.[3] She later joined the first Villainy Inc. as they attempted to take over Paradise Island. The variety of gadgets at her disposal include a "telescopic snow ray" that can create petrifying blizzards, a "defroster ray" for reverse effects, a hat that produces blue snow, and a smoking pipe that projects icicles. She also controls an army of robots attuned to her brainwaves.

Post-Crisis, the Blue Snowman fought Power Girl, though she was mentioned to be an enemy of Wonder Woman. Post-DC Rebirth, Byrna Brilyant was a scientist hired by Veronica Cale to control the Blue Snowman suit. Post-Rebirth, Byrna Brilyant came out as gender-fluid.

The Cheetah Wonder Woman #6 (October 1943) The original Cheetah, Priscilla Rich, was a beautiful dancer and philanthropist who developed an odd sort of split personality when she felt overshadowed by Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman #274 (December 1980) A second Pre-Crisis Cheetah, Deborah Domaine, the niece of the original, was an ecologist; she was kidnapped, brainwashed into a feral eco-terrorist, and trained in unarmed combat by Kobra. Post-Crisis, Deborah never became the Cheetah.
Wonder Woman (vol. 2) #7 (August 1987) (as Barbara Ann Minerva); #8 (as the Cheetah) The current Cheetah, Barbara Ann Minerva, is a former archeologist and treasure-hunter who sold her soul to the plant-god Urtzkartaga for power and immortality, not realizing she would be bound in eternal servitude to him. She, aside from Circe and Ares, is arguably Wonder Woman's deadliest archenemy.
Wonder Woman (vol. 2) #171 (August 2001) Minerva briefly lost her power to Argentine businessman Sebastian Ballesteros, who became Circe's consort and funded the transformation of Vanessa Kapatelis into the Silver Swan. He lost the Cheetah power in a deadly battle with Minerva and later was found slain by Minerva after having abducted Kapatelis and again transforming her into the Silver Swan.
Circe Wonder Woman #37 (September/October 1949) Circe is based on the Greek mythological character of the same name. A witch and sorceress of vast power, specializing in illusion and transformation spells, Circe became one of Wonder Woman's most formidable foes in the Post-Crisis DC continuity, and even triggered a War of the Gods.
Deimos Wonder Woman #183 (August 1969) Deimos is the God of Dread and the son of Ares and Aphrodite. He planned to ignite a war between the United States and the Soviet Union, though his plans were thwarted by Wonder Woman. After the events of DC Rebirth, Deimos and his brother Phobos took the appearance of handsome twins and plotted to find Themyscira so that they could free their father Ares. Their actions led to the formation of Godwatch.
Devastation Wonder Woman (vol. 2) #143 (April 1999) The Titan known as Cronus created Devastation much the same way Wonder Woman was created: by having life breathed into a clay female figure. With his Titan children each blessing her with dark gifts, she is Cronus' champion who he hopes will defeat Olympus' champion: Wonder Woman. With almost the same powers, this demigoddess is almost an exact copy of Wonder Woman, save for the dark twist behind her powers.[4]

Devastation is featured as an agent (and associate of the Bialyan Queen Bee) of the Light in the television series Young Justice. She first appears in "Terrors" as an inmate of Iron Heights. She is voiced by Diane Delano.

Doctor Cyber Wonder Woman #179 (November–December 1968) A female criminal mastermind and head of an international crime syndicate, Doctor Cyber was Wonder Woman's nemesis during a period when she had given up her Amazon powers and become a white-costumed karate expert. During an early battle, Cyber's face was horribly burned. Vowing revenge for her ruined beauty, she became obsessed with having Wonder Woman's face removed and surgically grafted on her own. She also teamed up with Batman foe Doctor Moon in this period. Post-DC Rebirth, Doctor Cyber is the computerized assistant of Veronica Cale and a member of the organization Godwatch.
Doctor Poison Sensation Comics #2 (February 1942) Princess Maru became Doctor Poison who, disguising her gender via a bulky hooded costume and mask, was the leader of a Nazi spy ring whose ultimate goal was to wreak havoc by contaminating the Army's water with "reverso", a drug that caused people to do the opposite of what they are told.
Wonder Woman (vol. 2) #151 (December 1999) In recent years, an unnamed granddaughter of the original Doctor Poison appears in league with Devastation, Villainy Inc., and the Secret Society of Super Villains. Having used herself as a subject for biochemical experiments, she has developed the ability to secrete various toxins and chemicals.
Doctor Psycho Wonder Woman #5 (June–July 1943) Ridiculed as a child for his small stature and strange appearance, Doctor Psycho grew up to be highly sexist and misogynistic. Formerly a brilliant student, he went mad and turned to crime after being framed for a crime by a rival who stole the only girl he ever loved. A little person with occultic abilities, he originally was intended to be an archetypical mad scientist and medium, but that image was dropped Post-Crisis. He is one of Wonder Woman's deadliest foes.
The Duke of Deception Wonder Woman #2 (fall 1942) A servant of the evil god Mars from his base on the planet Mars, he embodied deceit, confusion and treachery, using his godlike powers of illusion, shapeshifting and influencing minds to further the cause of war. One of Wonder Woman's most persistent foes, he plagued her throughout the Golden, Silver and Bronze Ages. Little is known about the true history of the Duke of Deception. He appears to be a minor god who existed for thousands of years, drafted by Mars to battle Wonder Woman. He uses his powers to spread falsehoods to provoke humanity into conflict and war, and played a major role in the Golden Age origin of another notable Wonder Woman villain, Doctor Psycho.
Eris Wonder Woman #183 (August 1969) The Goddess of Discord and one of the Children of Ares in the Pre-Flashpoint continuity, where she was known as Eris. She used the Golden Apples of Discord to cause chaos in the United Nations. She was eventually slain by the Son of Vulcan, though she was revived at one point by her brother Phobos and possessed the body of Poison Ivy. In The New 52, Eris was called Strife and was Diana's half-sister through Zeus; she is portrayed as sarcastic and a heavy drinker.
Giganta Wonder Woman #9 (June 1944) Giganta was originally a gorilla who was super-evolved into a woman by Professor Zool. Her modern day version is Doctor Doris Zuel, a medical doctor suffering from a fatal disease who hoped to transfer her life essence into Wonder Woman. When Wonder Girl foiled her attempt, her essence was placed into a gorilla. She then transferred her essence into Olga, a circus strongwoman. Post-Crisis, she has the power to grow to gigantic size.
Gundra Comic Cavalcade #17 (October 1946) Occasionally referred to as Gudra, Gundra was a Nazi Valkyrie who Wonder Woman battled in order to retrieve Steve Trevor from Valhalla. She has since made sporadic appearances throughout Wonder Woman's history. Post-DC Rebirth, Gudra is the last surviving Valkyrie and the ancestor of Paula von Gunther.
Maxwell Lord Justice League #1 (May 1987) An evil businessman with mind control powers. During Infinite Crisis, he manipulated Superman to attack Batman and Wonder Woman; she found that the only way to stop him was to kill him and snapped his neck, causing her to become wanted for a time. Later, during Blackest Night, he came back to life as a Black Lantern, whose only goal was to get revenge on Wonder Woman for killing him.
Medusa Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #52 (October 1964) Based on the legendary Gorgon from Greek mythology, Medusa is known for her ability to turn anyone who looks into her eyes to stone. She was killed by Wonder Woman, but resurrected by her sisters, Euryale and Stheno, only to be killed once again by the Amazon. In The New 52, Medusa once again returned and battled Wonder Woman and Batwoman.
Paula von Gunther Sensation Comics #4 (April 1942) Wonder Woman's first recurring nemesis, Paula von Gunther is a German baroness, ruthless Nazi spymaster, evil scientist, and femme fatale. Blackmailed into serving the Nazis because they held her daughter prisoner, she changed sides after Wonder Woman rescued her daughter, Gerta, and joined the Amazons as their chief scientist. Pre-Crisis, Paula von Gunther had standard Amazon powers, such as superhuman strength capable of breaking chains, leaping great heights and speed and stamina enough to deflect bullets and other projectiles from her Amazon bracelets. She was also a skilled hand-to-hand combatant. Post-Crisis, von Gunther was empowered when possessed by the Dark Angel, who had vast powers, and was able to perform a variety of feats including mind control, altering her size, teleportation and altering the time stream. Post-DC Rebirth, Paula von Gunther adopted the name the Warmaster and formed the Four Horsewomen.
Phobos Wonder Woman #183 (August 1969) The God of Fear and the son of Ares and Aphrodite. After the events of DC Rebirth, Phobos and his brother Deimos appear as handsome twins.
Queen Clea Wonder Woman #8 (March 1944) Cruel ruler of the Atlantean city of Venturia, where women were large, strong and powerful and men were stunted, weak and servile, Queen Clea often forced her subjects to battle in gladiatorial combat. Wanting to take over all of Atlantis, she eventually stole the trident of Poseidon to make herself supremely powerful. She was stopped by Wonder Woman and later joined Villainy Inc. in an attempt at revenge. As an Atlantean, Queen Clea can breathe both above and under water. Clea can also physically withstand the great amounts of undersea depth pressures. Because of this, her body is resistant to most physical injury and provides a form of super strength. When in possession of the mystical trident belonging to Poseidon, Clea's strength levels increase and she has limited control over water. The trident also has the ability to fire force blasts. Due to a spell by the witch Circe, Clea now also has the ability of flight.
The Silver Swan Wonder Woman #288 (February 1982) Pre-Crisis, Helen Alexandros was a homely ballerina passed up for roles until she struck a bargain with her ancestor, the war-god Mars: power and beauty in exchange for killing Wonder Woman.

Industrialist Henry Armbruster seduced and even married her to convince her to submit to experiments that enhanced her sonic powers and transformed her into a beautiful woman. However, she remained insecure and emotionally dominated by Armbruster, who used her as a weapon against Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman (vol. 2) #171 (August 2001) A third Silver Swan, Vanessa Kapatelis, was actually a longtime friend of Wonder Woman, kidnapped by Circe, Doctor Psycho and others, brainwashed into hating her former idol, and turned into a murderous cyborg.

Veronica Cale Wonder Woman (vol. 2) #196 (November 2003) Scientific genius and part owner of Cale-Anderson Pharmaceuticals, Veronica Cale has made it her goal to destroy Wonder Woman.

She later escaped from Transformation Island, which was meant to rehabilitate female criminals, along with seven other villainesses and formed the first incarnation of Villainy Inc. to seek revenge against Wonder Woman. Post-DC Rebirth, Zara is a powerful pyrokinetic recruited by Veronica Cale as an agent of Godwatch and sent to battle Wonder Woman.

She does not appear to have any superpowers, but she could skillfully use a whip to control her subjects.

After taking control of a guard using the lasso, she freed several prisoners from Transformation Island and banded them together as Villainy Inc. The team was unsuccessful against Wonder Woman despite kidnapping her mother, and were defeated and captured. Her Golden Age race of aggressive ultra-rational Saturnian telepaths, however, may have inspired the DC Silver Age characters Saturn Girl and Saturn Queen, who strongly resemble Eviless in body and hair style, costume, powers and planet(s) of origin.

While granting the benefit of superhuman strength and numerous other functions such as sensors, these advanced implants replaced much of LeTonya's humanity with hardware, which could be the reason why LeTonya failed to use her new lease on life for anything other than personal gain.

At some point, LeTonya was drafted by Queen Clea to become a member of the newly reformed Villainy Inc. as Cyborgirl. The team attempted to overthrow Skartaris, though they were ultimately defeated by Wonder Woman.

She, along with three other Amazons, agreed to protect their queen's life at all costs. When word got out that Queen Hippolyta was praying to the gods for a child, Alkyone believed it would destroy them.

She has always hated Diana, thinking she was the cause of all the Amazons' problems and has endlessly plotted to murder her. Her hatred for Diana is only matched by her praise for Hippolyta and her illusions made her believe every horror she did was in Hyppolyta's name. The first time she has tried to murder Diana (who was barely born), Alkyone intruded in the Queen's rooms to slaughter the child, but Hyppolyta woke up and punished her and her three friends by sending them to jail. Alkyone then asked her three friends to help her a few years later. She failed that time as well to murder the princess and was "humiliated" by Diana.

She was married to Achilles and ruled Themyscira for a short time, but her intentions were always that Hippolyta regain her throne. The third time Alkyone appeared, she called Cottus, a slimy black monster from the depths of Themyscira, believing it was the princess' father.

The Crow Children "War Killer" in Wonder Woman (vol. 3) #37-41 The sons of Ares; Brother Goat, Brother Spider, Brother Rat, Brother Scorpion, and Brother Adder are the result of a plan of revenge by Ares against Wonder Woman after she slew him in battle. As a result of magic that Ares used in the Underworld, five Amazons became inexplicably pregnant. While this normally would have been a momentous event, the times were greatly troubled on Themyscira, with the Amazon Alkyone having displaced Queen Hippolyte and Zeus having imposed Achilles as the first King of Themyscira. Men had also come to live on the island, the Gargareans, and though none of the Amazons apparently had sex with them, their presence was enough that immaculate conception was not the only possibility.

The boys were dispatched to Washington D.C., where they used their mind control powers to ignite racial riots in their attempt to defame Wonder Woman. They ended up being defeated by Wonder Woman who used her Lasso of Truth to see through their illusions. Instead of the planned conclusion to the story, in which the boys turned into demonic versions of their animal spirits, causing further havoc in the streets, the issue ended anticlimactically with Wonder Woman giving them a spanking. However, the originally planned ending alludes to them having powers to transform into large animal demons.

The Dark Man Wonder Woman #601 (September 2010) A sadistic minion of the Morrigan who had once been a government agent named Lucius. He was burnt to near-death but was saved by the Morrigan in exchange for his servitude. He slaughtered the Amazons of Themyscira, including Queen Hippolyta. Later, during a battle with Wonder Woman, Hippolyta returned and took her revenge on Lucius, carrying him back into the flames with her.
Cernunnos Wonder Woman #604 (December 2010) An agent of the Dark Man who had tried to report back to the Morrigan, but was turned to stone by Medusa's head. He, along with his partner, was transformed by Anann, one of the Morrigan. He became a centaur and attacked Wonder Woman, managing to spear her through the shoulder. After murdering Phillipus, Cernunnos was killed by Wonder Woman.
The Minotaur Wonder Woman #604 (December 2010) An agent of the Dark Man who had tried to report back to the Morrigan along with Cernunnos. He was transformed into a minotaur by Anann. After carrying out the Morrigan's bidding and revealing their plans to Wonder Woman, the Minotaur hanged himself using Diana's lasso.

In The New 52, a minotaur appears as an adversary for Diana in her early formative years, whom she was meant to slay as part of her rite of passage. Diana chose to spare the creature, and the same minotaur later accompanied Diana's villainous half-sister Cassandra as her bodyguard and enforcer.

Anann Wonder Woman #605 (January 2011) One of the Morrigan, a trio of war goddesses. Her plan was to eliminate the Amazons and recruit Diana as the third sister, replacing Enyo. The most powerful of the Morrigan, Anann outlives Bellona, and in the final battle manages to slay the Cheetah with ease. However, as she uses her magical Song of Death to suck the life from Diana, a fatally wounded Artemis shoots Anann in the neck with an arrow. The wound causes Anann to continue singing until she explodes, destroying the skyscraper they were using as a headquarters.
Bellona Wonder Woman #605 (January 2011) One of the Morrigan, a trio of war goddesses. Like Anann, she wished to recruit Diana into her triumvirate. In order to weaken Diana's spirit, she resurrected the spirits of three Amazon warriors: Artemis, the Cheetah, and Giganta. After a warning from Enyo, their deceased sister, the Morrigan decided that Diana must die instead of joining them. However, after repeated failures, their mistress Nemesis gave them one last chance. During their final encounter with Wonder Woman, who had convinced the three resurrected Amazons to join her, Bellona was severely wounded by Giganta. As she crawled away, Doctor Psycho and Ajax, her former sparring partner and slave, finished her off.
Nemesis Wonder Woman #611 (July 2011) A loose adaptation of the real-world Greek goddess of the same name, Nemesis is responsible for bringing vengeance for the unjustly killed. Over the millennia, the voices and hatred of the spirits who have died drove her insane and she decided the only way to bring peace was to scour Earth of humanity or have another take her place. She created a plan to steal the life, form, and powers of Wonder Woman with the help of a trio of war goddesses, the Morrigan. She was partially thwarted by the Fate Clotho, whose meddling allowed a sliver of Diana's self to escape from a deadly ambush, whereupon she set the Morrigan to help shape this new form of Diana to her needs and twist her justice to vengeance as well.

With Wonder Woman's power in addition to her own, her control over the spirits of the dead and the deadly Flashing Blade which could slay gods, not even the Gods of Olympus dared openly oppose her; it was up to Diana to grow strong enough to confront Nemesis once more and regain her power. The two fought, first Nemesis in Wonder Woman's form and then, once Diana did succeed in reuniting herself, on her own. Wonder Woman slew Nemesis with her own sword, and the goddess finally felt at peace as she lay dying, the cries of the unjustly slain and the need to punish passing on to another.

In The New 52, she reappears as a villainous antagonist. In a possible future scenario depicted in Superman/Wonder Woman: Futures End #1, it was revealed that Nemesis infected Diana, then trapped her in the realm of Tartarus and under a state of delusion where she was fighting what she perceived as her enemies when, in fact, they were just illusions. Superman managed to rescue Diana and brought her out of Tartarus; then, along with the remnant of the Amazon army, they faced the goddess together.

Villain First appearance Description
Apollo Wonder Woman (vol. 4) #1 (September 2011) The sun god, brother of Artemis, Apollo has long had his sights on the throne of Olympus, but only at the discovery of Zeus' absence does he make his move. Being pragmatic, he bargained for Hera's permission to take the throne if he returned the last of Zeus' lovers to her. Apollo proved the wiser of the two, as Hera only permitted Apollo the chance in the belief that Zeus would immediately return to her, while Apollo had realized through portents that he would not; he did not even exist. He remained an adversary of Wonder Woman as his goals generally moved against hers, though he lacked the rage his sister felt for having been badly beaten by the Amazon. Apollo's planning came undone eventually when he believed he could torture the First Born into relinquishing his own quest for the throne, ending with his older brother breaking free and killing him. Previous versions of Apollo appeared in the Wonder Woman series as an ally to the Amazons.

Clawing his way through the planet's crust for seven thousand years, the First Born returned to a world where Zeus had erased all knowledge of him from human memory. When he is freed him from the Arctic ice by an 'end of the world' cult, led by his evil half-sister, Cassandra, he and his hyena-men conquer London with plans to attack Mount Olympus.

Lennox eventually found the young Cassandra and took her under his wing. At one point, she had 40 people murder each other using her hypnotic voice, but had her throat ripped open by Lennox as retaliation for her heinous actions. She managed to survive her injury and had her throat replaced by a bionic device that allowed her to speak. Eventually she managed to uncover the First Born, the firstborn son of Zeus and Hera, with a team of scientists and managed to convince him to trust her as his ally. She accompanied the First Born as he battled Hades and Poseidon, eventually making their way to London where they confronted Lennox, Diana, Zola, and Hera in an attempt to capture Zeke. Losing the First Born to the combined powers of Wonder Woman, Orion, and Ares, Cassandra was left to attempt another path to Olympus by capturing one of those able to go there. First she captured her half-brother Milan, who otherwise had spoken in her defense, before being led to Dionysus where she and the Minotaur managed to capture him and take them to Olympus in time to see the First Born kill Apollo and claim the throne. Cassandra was driven mad with starvation and cannibalism during her stay with the First Born before being set loose on his enemies as a distraction. During the battle for Themyscira, Cassandra chased Zola before being confronted by Hera, but was spared death thanks to Diana. What happened to her afterwards remains unknown.
