This is the second Amazonian shield used by Wonder Woman, which seems to have magical Amazonian properties and is decorated with runes. It replaced her first shield that she had brought with her upon first entering the world of Men, which had a starburst pattern. Wonder Woman used her new shield when she joined Batman and Superman in the fight against the deformity known as Doomsday.

History

Wonder Woman discharging Doomsday's energy with her shield

After World War I and by 2015, Diana replaced her first shield with a new one, which was first seen to be in use when she intervened in the fight against Doomsday.[1]

Wonder Woman using the second shield to repel Steppenwolf

Diana continued to use this second shield through the War for Earth against the New God Steppenwolf.[2]

At an unknown point in a possible future, Wonder Woman was killed by the invading forces of Darkseid. The Amazons honored her with a funeral pyre together with her shield and full armor. At presumably a later point in time, the shield could be seen sitting in the ruins of the Justice League headquarters.[3]

Capabilities

Much like the Bracelets of Submission as well as her first shield, Wonder Woman's second shield is virtually indestructible. Her first shield was able to withstand machine gun fire and deflect shells; while her second one is capable of deflecting even powerful and destructive thermal attacks from monsters such as Doomsday.

Due to its tremendous durability, it can also be used as an offensive weapon, as seen when Diana used it to momentarily knock the Kryptonian Doomsday down.[1]
