    Probably not, but "not advertising" is one thing, and actively lying to her own daughter is another. Was she so afraid of punishment that she would have lied to her daughter to protect herself? I...

    Heh. Pros and cons: they're both controlling and have some major boundary issues, but Hermes is a good person to know if you need a ride somewhere, and Hessia gives her friends free healthcare. :)...

    I agree--but, what a presumptuous way to act on her concerns! If I'm concerned about a friend, I think I should talk to that friend and ask how I can help; unless their judgement is severely impaired...

    I'm not so sure about that--when Hera does find out, Hippolyta doesn't run or hide, and she orders the other Amazons not to protect her. At that point, she seems more interested in protecting those...

    Rather than helping to derail the thread on the solicit for Wonder Woman 50, I'm pasting in a comment from there and responding to it here.

    Solicit for Wonder Woman 50 (March)

    WONDER WOMAN #50
    Written by MEREDITH FINCH
    Art by DAVID FINCH and SCOTT HANNA


    That doesn't sound so good. What will it be? Zeke was only pretending to need "saving" and is actually fully the...

    Sure, but even assuming that the nightmare is at most a warning of a possible future (one which we expect our heros to eventually avert), some aspects of the threat of which this nightmare warns...

    You're right that Wilkinson's saying the dream expresses Batman's "obsessive" concern about Superman--and maybe that's all there is to it. But in a longer version of that quotation, Wilkinson calls...

    True--and I thought about that, which is why I only said not all belief systems see death as the great equalizer between humans and gods, and I didn't say no belief systems see it that way.

    Thanks, Outside. This is fun to talk about.

    I can see your point; but on the other hand, if Gaelforce is right and the gods can't die except when they're killed by other gods, Hermes could get hurt and mutilated even much worse than that and...

    Nearly killed, but not, possibly because he couldn't be killed by anyone who wasn't family. And though they're not unkillable, Hermes does basically say in 8 (and possibly elsewhere) that death, even...

    I'm glad she says that even though Ares is back, Diana is still god of war; I think her way of fulfilling that role still needs a lot of exploration. It's interesting that Ares is going to want that...

    She's also the only one who we see losing her son, so we've got no other data points on how they react to losing their sons. I don't see why the book would have shown us an "exception" as the only...
