This is the ninth in a series of character redesigns for an imagined Wonder Woman live-action television series as produced by myself initially based off George Perez's iconic run on the Post-Crisis title. Here we have the Amazon warriors General Phillipus and Captain Euboea!
For those familiar with George Perez or even Phil Jimenez's runs on Wonder Woman's post-Crisis title, they'll know that the Amazons from Themyscira are fleshed out and given proper identities to a point where you can genuinely pick favourites. General Phillipus (alternatively spelled Philippus) is probably my favourite of the Amazons. She's a tough cookie who is an absolutely brilliant strategist and is a highly skilled warrior. She is brave and is not one to give up easily. Of all the Amazons on Themyscira, it was Phillipus who helped to shape Princess Diana into the warrior she would eventually become as Wonder Woman. Phillipus was really the one who trained her to use her powers. Phillipus is also Queen Hippolyta's most trusted advisor and was chosen by the Queen herself to lead the Amazons when she temporarily stepped down from the throne. Captain Euboea is another great character. She's one of the few (perhaps the only) recognizable Asian Amazon and is presented as the best diver (and presumably their best swimmer). She appeared to have had a close bond with Diana when the Princess was growing up and, like Phillipus, helped to raise her. Euboea is also a resourceful warrior which is always a plus.
When it came to coming up with looks for the two most prominent Amazon warriors, I decided to really play with the standard Greek warrior garb and add in elements similar to Wonder Woman's costume in order to create the implication that the stylized WW eagle is in fact something of a symbol for the Amazons. They're all Wonder Women.
I had also decided that I wanted the Amazons to be featured in colours unique to them in order to bring out their characters. Queen Hippolyta, as you know from my design of her, wears purple while Diana's signature would be white (think: Diana Prince mod era). For General Phillipus, I opted for red. It's a rich colour with an aggressive side to it and really makes her seem like a powerful warrior. For Euboea, I went with green. It's a more calming colour and should imply her patience as a character as well as her attachment to nature. I also tried to create a body difference between them as well. Phillipus is taller and more voluptuous while Euboea is more lithe and agile. Enjoy!
