In this Amalgamated Universe, the Avengers get lost in an underwater earthquake formed by the Hulk. Their sub gets thrown off course and when they reach land, they find themselves on an island populated by only women. Wasp takes control of the team and convinces Queen Hippolyta that their world has changed. The Queen is convinced that she should send a champion to the "Man's World" and holds a contest of champions to determine who would their best warrior. After a grueling series of matches, including one where the winning warrior must defeat the Avengers, Diana (the daughter of the Queen and the Captain of Guard) is the one who becomes the Amazon Ambassador to the Man's World.

Diana is given "Founders Status" right away and while she is naive of the man's world, she stands by the Avengers against Count Nefaria and other villains. The Avengers also help Diana stand against the Hades and his zombies that had taken over the Island. At this point, she meets the man who is in the inspiration for her costume: Captain America.

Captain America explains that he had found himself on the shores of Paradise Island and used his shield and pistol on the beast, giving the Amazons an advantage at the cost of his life. After his death, the Amazons considered the outworlder to be an honored hero for his sacrifice that washed away the sins of Hercules. Since then he had guarded the Amazon gate to Hell, but the recent attack left his spirit weak. He gives Diana his shield and his dog tags, telling her to use his identity in the "Man's World' and never let them forget all of those who sacrifice themselves for the greater good.

After helping the Avengers defeat the combined evil of Loki and Hades, the Avengers disband because each of them is overtaxed because of that battle. But Diana stands resolved and forms a new team of Avengers as Diana Rogers, The NEW Captain America.

What is it about Gilgamesh that you like so well? Just wondering.

No I'm not particularly a big fan of the Eternals. I really only like Gilgamesh. I'm sure everyone here loves Sersi but I always felt like she usurped his place on the team.

The first comic I ever bought was Avengers #300. The reason I bought the issue? The dude with the big cowhead on the cover.

Gil seemed like he had a bit of a sadness to him. He had often had adventures in the world of man but wherever he went he was a stranger. Even amongst his own people his name had been forgotten. He was a warrior and a stoic. He appeared to have no true friends, lovers or family to speak of. Oh he doubtlessly had several nights of passions with princesses and maidens and the like and he had forged fellowships with other warriors who loved to slay monsters but they were all fleeting. He never had anyone to really care about or anyone who really cared about him. His joining the Avengers was his admitting to himself that something had to change in his life. That he had to forge true bonds with people. That he could find a way to balance the life of adventure he loved with the loneliness of being forgotten. That he had found a group of compatriots that also loved adventure and that they had the potential to finally be something he had never had before...true friends.

And then the next writer came along, had him bitchslapped by a lava monster and shipped him off to live with his people...the same people he spent an eternity avoiding because they just didn't get him.
