In some versions of the myth Hephaestus was not a product of incest. He sprang from Hera's body much in the same way the Athena sprang from Zeus' and since he was born lame Hera discarded him.
In other versions he is the child of Zeus and Hera but he only became lame when Zeus threw him from Olympus for siding with Hera in an argument.
BTW I really hope that nothing happens between Hades and Diana...Call me picky but I'd much rather this situation not pan out to be Diana's first time being shown in a sexual situation within the new 52.

Just tell me this…Was Herakles my father?
"Laissez-moi vous émerveiller:"
In that little beauty contests between Athena, Hera and Aphrodite (over a golden apple Eris/Strife presented them), Aphrodite has the natural edge because of her area of patronage. If i am not mistaken, she was married to Hephaestus because she was that beautiful Zeus feared the Gods would fight over her. So the others turn to bribes to sway Paris...they loose anyways when Aphrodite makes a more appealing bribe and throw a great big fit over it. Might have turned out differently if they had chosen someone else (Hector and Achilles might have been better swayed by Athena's offer, for example).
