Mark Crilley comic
Plop! was a Bi-monthly anthology comic featuring stories in both horror and humour genres. The stories were often hosted by DC's regular story tellers Cain, Abel and Eve. The title also featured the works by some of the industry's best cartoonists.
This version of the story begins with Ares and Aphrodite arguing over who shall rule the world - men with violence or women with love. Ares (quickly rechristened Mars) sends his men to enslave women throughout the world. Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, prays to Aphrodite for protection. Aphrodite gives her a magic girdle that bestows great strength and power. Hippolyta then leads her Amazons to victory over the men, who are led by Hercules. After surrendering, Hercules promises peace with the Amazons and seduces Hipployta. When she is vulnerable he steals her girdle and he and his men enslave the Amazons.
