In the Post-Crisis, Hermes was present at a meeting with her fellow Gods in to talk about the dwindling worshipping from the mortals. After Zeus deemed this issue beneath him and left, Hermes accompanied Aphrodite, Ares, Athena, Demeter, and Hestia to the Underworld where the Cavern of Souls is. The Cavern of Souls is where Gaia has housed the souls of women who have been unjustly killed by men. They harvest the souls where they reincarnate them into Amazons and given a home on Themyscira except for one that Athena had saved for the day when Hippolyta sculpted a baby out of shoreline clay and Athena infused the baby sculpture with that spirit enabling Princess Diana to be born.
In The New 52, a reboot of the DC Comics universe, Hermes appears before Wonder Woman and instructs her to protect Zola because Hera wants her dead. Hermes and Zola were later seen walking through the woods when they are approached by Aphrodite. When Hermes states to Zola that Aphrodite is married to the ugly god Hephaestus, Aphrodite states that Hephaestus has other "charms." She tells them that she will not be attending the wedding as there is little love in Hell.
