  19. There are a number of interconnected events taking place around 3000 B.C., and they can be used to date each other. First, the invasion signal fire of the Amazons last burned 5000 years ago (c. 3000 B.C., Justice League), which was most likely to warn man of the Apokoliptian invasion, as it is the only known alien invasion prior to Man of Steel. King Atlan led Atlantis during this fight(Justice League), and was depicted as 20-30 years younger than he was when Atlantis sank (Aquaman) assuming Atlanteans age similarly to humans, which means the fall of Atlantis probably occurred about 20-30 years after the Apokoliptian invasion. Wonder Woman doesn't have an official age, but statements from production range from 900-5000 years old, putting the War of the Gods shortly after the Apokoliptian invasion at the earliest, as Diana was sired by Zeus, who died shortly after the War of the Gods (Wonder Woman). The Old Gods still lived, united against Apokolips during the invasion, so their war had to happen after. At the moment it can't be said that the War of the Gods necessarily did happen so early, but Zeus could have lived for centuries until succumbing to his injuries, and Amazon gestation could similarly last as long. Those unknown variables make it possible Diana was born up to 4000 years after the War of the Gods, dating her birth anywhere from c. 3000 B.C. to c. 1000 A.D., and the War of the Gods anywhere between the Apokoliptian invasion and Diana's birth.
  20. 20.0 20.1 20.2 It has been reported that the Atlantean, Amazon, and human forces fighting Darkseid was "around 30,000 years ago". With Justice League set in 2016, 30,000 years before 2016 is 27,985 B.C., or c. 28,000 B.C. to 3 significant figures of approximation.
  21. 21.0 21.1 21.2 21.3 21.4 21.5 21.6 21.7 Wonder Woman
  22. While Gal said she's 5000 in 2015, so around 2986 B.C., Patty said 800 in 1918, so around 1116 A.D.
  23. 23.0 23.1 Justice League
  24. In Justice League, it is said that "the Fire has not burned for 5000 years". With Justice League set in 2016, 5000 years before 2016 is 2985 B.C., or c. 3000 B.C. to 2 significant figures of approximation.
