What Do Amazons Do ALL Day LONG. Other than train for war!

#1 Edited by GWHH (576 posts) - - Show Bio

The Amaz0ns train (almost from birth) to learn to fight. But how many hours a day to they do that? Do they do it everyday? What do they do the rest of day? Eat, do chores, build stuff, study, learn, etc.

What you think they do all day?

Well, in addition to being great warriors, they are also supposed to have great wisdom, so I assume they read and study. They originate from Ancient Greece, so they probably play music and perform plays that are similar to what we know of Classical Literature. Of course, they also need to eat, and make clothes, weapons, buildings, etc.

I imagine all that will fill a day pretty quickly.

I hadn't even thought about plays...you know, that would be a rather amusing switch-a-roo from the original Greek productions (as those would have had all the parts of both male and female characters be played by men where as on Paradise Island being Paradise Island all the parts would be done by an all women cast). Pretty cool

Hippolyta would make a terrifying Medea...

Historically, DC portrayed Amazons teaching arts, exploring, hunting for sport or game, building, creating and having fun.

@the_poet: Agreed. It's actually pretty funny to think of the Amazons performing just about any Classical plays. I think Oedipus Rex would be particularly interesting/unintentionally hilarious.

I just read Wonder Woman Vol. 2 #37 and, lo and behold, the Amazons perform a play that recounts their journey to Themyscira, complete with Amazons wearing Heracles masks. This issue also reveals that they spend a lot of time working on architecture, cooking, and writing works of philosophy. So there you have it.
