She is legendary monster from Greek Myths. Once decapitated by Perseus as part of his own quest. Through the actions of a jealous Hera, Medusa's two gorgon sisters were set free from their prison on the then hovering Paradise Island. The two then set out to be reunited with their long dead sister. Forcing Circe to recreate the gorgon. Circe at first was unwilling to simply aid the two sisters and followed the letter rather than the spirit of the deal and resurrected only Medusa's head, citing that it had been the part the two sisters had handed her and demanded it be remade. Poseidon then promises Circe she would be reunited with her daughter, who was being raised by the Amazons, if she resurrected Medusa. To this Circe agreed, and a vengeful Medusa was reborn.
Medusa harbored the desire to take vengeance on the Champion of the Gods, so her sights was set on Wonder Woman, the ambassador of Themyscira.
