The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, simply known as the United Kingdom, Britain, or the UK, is a small island sovereign state in Europe.

It is one of the wealthiest and most influential countries in the world, at one point being the center of the largest empire in human history, with the British Empire governing a quarter of the globe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

History

20th century

World War I

The United Kingdom was one of the major nations that mobilized during World War I. It was a dominant force in the Allied Powers which fought, and triumphed over the Central Powers. Its capital, London, was the first place that Diana Prince visited after leaving her home of Themyscira; she also departed for the frontline of the war from Dover. She later returned after the end of the war with several of her companions and was present at the Armistice Day celebrations at Trafalgar Square.[1][2]

21st century

When Superman was learning to fly after being taught his powers in a scout ship by his father Jor-El's hologram, he flew across the White Cliffs of Dover in the nation's south.[3]

While primarily based across the channel in Paris, in recent times Wonder Woman was also known to operate in the United Kingdom, especially in London. Prior to the return of Steppenwolf, she intervened during a terrorist attack on the Old Bailey Courthouse.[4]
