    Or at least close to that, since he was at least a young adult by WWII. And Siracca was born a few years before World War I.

    Oh for Pete's sake! She's a godazon! Before the New 52 she could hold her breath for insane amounts of time and in crazy situations.
    I'd suggest that her physiology makes it possible for her to hold her breath for as long as she may need to.

    In Demon Knights 16 it is confirmed that the Amazons are immortal. The Amazon on the team didn't change a bit in 30 years.

    About the immortality thing, I was re-reading all WW issues and this speech by Hermes to Diana got my attention: "You are young. I think the concept of immortality is something you don't grasp yet. Diana... being immortal is a blessing, and a trap. A trap mortals don't share." That heavily implies she is in fact immortal.

    Yes sir. It was already mentioned in this topic... I just thought Hermes' speech offers some additional clarity because it was directed to Diana herself.

    Do the amazons glorify death?

    Not death, but death in battle. They are a warrior society after all.

    There were daughters of Zeus who were married off to Kings, but they don't have many stories about them. Whether they died of old age, or whether they were made immortal when their mortal body died, is not known. For example using a popular character, some stories about Helen of Troy say that she didn't die, but was brought up to Olympus and had a cult following as a vegetation/fertility goddess. Other stories talk about her death without divine intervention. Others don't mention her much after the Trojan War. Minor daughters of Zeus may not get more than a mention, but there have been heroes who had divine blood (grandchildren of Zeus) and they went on to do great things.

    They sound like Klingons.
