    Or what if it was just destined to happen? Maybe there was an old prophecy that the daughter born to Zeus and a great Queen in a moment of "absolute control...given up" (as Hippolyta calls it in...

    They seem to be more than human at least in terms of longevity; the priestess in issue 3 implies that they have the gift of eternal (or at least very long) life. We haven't had a chance to see how...

    Orion's not Highfather's son by blood, is he? Unless things have changed, he's Darkseid's son (and I seem to remember that Azz confirmed this in an interview, if not in the book). Not I'd want Diana...
  4. I hope that one of the remaining "big reveals"...

    I hope that one of the remaining "big reveals" shows that Diana's power does come in part from her mother's side--or, best of all, from being the product of the union of matriarchy and patriarchy. To...

    I agree, and I hope someone follows up with Azz in an interview sometime about whether he refined his approach to the character as a result of fan response. He may not have fully realized what she...

    Yeah, I know. I was agreeing with you that it is a myth, at least in the more academic sense of the word (which sets aside whether it's true or not). Personally in most cases I'd avoid referring to a...

    Once it was pushed back a couple of weeks, it probably had to be pushed back over a month, because they wouldn't publish it during "Futures' End" month.

    "Myth" is a tricky word, to me, because it's colloquial meaning and its more "technical" or academic meaning are different. People I know in the field of Religious Studies like to point out that when...

    I see the OP's point: one of the ideas the character has always stood for is freedom, and an instrument of coercion does seem to symbolically go against freedom.

    But her creator's ideas about...

    Interesting point. If WW (or Galatea or Pandora or Adam, or whoever) was sculpted from clay, I guess it's not so much the "from clay" as the "sculpted" part that's a bit extraordinary. More or less...

    Very possibly, though I think that the cover is about highlighting the women Wonder Woman has gathered around herself (by restoring the Amazons, reforming Hera, and so on), especially during the last...

    Well, a bunch of interesting scenes--like Diana's duels with Aleka in 2 and 0, or Artemis' grief over Apollo, or Lennox's sacrifice--would have been lost without those characters. To me, what's...

    Any story can be recapped in 5 minutes, or one sentence, if you strip it down enough. The Odyssey is one of the core epics in Western literature, and you could summarize it by saying a guy returning...

    It could have happened on the page in Earth 2 issue 1:

    See the cables they stuck into his face? They could have been extracting his DNA and memories, right before they blew him up. Of...

    Yep--but I wouldn't be surprised if one of the "four furies" teased on the last page and on the Channel 52 pages turns out to be a "bizarro Wonder Woman," cobbled together from the remains of the...

    Exactly--when he said something like "me am Superman," I thought it was pretty clear that this was Earth 2 Bizarro. It was a sort of brilliant resolution; if Darkseid's forces made this version of...

    I'm thinking maybe Hera's rage at Orion was partly for the Amazons' benefit. With Diana away at least for the moment, Hera might feel it's up to her to hold this crazy army together, and to do that...

    Sure--he offended, she let it go (in the bar, when he slapped her butt); he offended again, she warned him (hyperbolically, and with a little demonstration of how love can hurt :) ); he offended...

    Yes--she went the non-violent route of choking him and cracking his skull against the ground, instead of applying slightly excessive pressure to his balls. :)

    Wonder Woman (pointing): "Look! Up In the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's S--":

    I thought this was the worst issue since the highly regrettable #2. The dialogue was lackluster and the plot and characterization didn't draw me in. The book had been on the upswing for a while, but...

    Have you seen the latest issue (#25, which came out this week)? Alan and Jay, and to a somewhat lesser extent Kendra, are very much in it. I can understand if you find that this comes too late and if...

    What's feminist to me about the story is that it promoted the idea that a woman could be president. That was a pretty radical idea at the time, only a couple of decades after women got the vote.

    I agree, in a sense. In writing Steve, Marston was, I think, was guided by one of his own idiosyncratic feminist principles--the idea that men crave to be dominated by a strong woman. I don't Steve...

    It seems like he was basically thinking out loud; it occurred to him that the "feminist" label might be misunderstood, but he didn't quite have time to realize that he could just not use the word...
