In the scene from Justice League where Steppenwolf attacks Themyscira and Hippolyta was riding the horse with another Amazon carrying the mother box, when Steppenwolf strikes them, why did Hippolyta not lift the horse to help the other Amazon that was stuck under the horse?

I assume she has superhuman strength as per what the Wiki says, I'd even say the Amazon that was stuck has superhuman strength too, but maybe she was tired or can't draw enough strength when she was stuck. So why didn't the queen help?

This is the scene I'm referring to.

  • "I assume she has superhuman strength" - what wiki, you didn't link it? I don't think there is any evidence that the amazons have superhuman strength by default. Certainly they are exceptionally gifted athletes an warriors but Diana is a demigod which is where her strength comes from.

  • @Paulie_D - This says she possesses "enhanced strength". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… Apr 29 '21 at 13:33
  • That's the comics version.....not the movie one.

  • @Paulie_D But it's weird if they strip the queen's abilities in the movies and Amazonian race is different with human race like the Atlantean. Also in DCEU wiki, though it's fan base. They are still described as 'superhuman warriors' and their trainings as shown in the Wonder Woman 1984 are beyond human level. It wont make sense if they make Amazons a regular human race when they show separate protectors during the Snyder Cut. Apr 29 '21 at 14:57
  • also there is evidence that Amazons have superhuman strength base on the comics which is where the movie was based and what is shown in some clips in Wonder Woman movie. If you contest that movie was different, nah, between Amazon as a superior race and an ordinary race, then the latter has no evidence. Apr 29 '21 at 15:02

The queen did help; she offers compassion (in the moment of her own personal peril) lifting the horse would not have saved her life.
