During the war with Ares
Ares refused to give up his hold on mankind and created an army to battle the gods and the Amazons and at this point we see them enslaved.
ANTIOPE (V.O.) Ares refused to give up his hold on mankind. Tightening his grip, he turned them against us. ARES AND HIS ARMY OF MEN lead Hippolyta and the other Amazons out of a BURNING CITY in SHACKLES and CHAINS. When Zeus led the gods to our defense, Ares killed them, one-by-one....... until only Zeus himself remained. HIPPOLYTA breaks the chains between her bracelets! ANTIOPE (V.O.) Your mother, the Amazon Queen, led a revolt that freed us all from enslavement.
