    All good points. But I would point that the narrator says the Amazon in question is "carrying on the mission the gods gave us." So if the gods once gave the Amazons the mission of protecting the...

    Good point. I hadn't seen the GL panel until your post made me check. Still, the JL 42 solicit mentions that the price of getting the answers the League needs may be the loss of Batman's soul.

    Sure, maybe. And if Batman does have to consider giving his soul, or part of it, to Grail, that could even be a way of "humanizing" her and giving her a conscience, so that the heroes can get her to...

    I don't think she should ever be rebooted with a pantheon that's not related to the Greek or Graeco-Roman gods; that would lose too much resonance. But I could be happy with additions and...

    I wouldn't mind that--especially if he figures out a not-too-contrived way to get Wonder Woman's WWII history back into continuity (which Chiang and Azz supposedly wanted to in a "pulp hero" version...

    I guess that the additional tease that came out after you asked this question may help to answer it. It looks like Batman has the potential to become a New God. That might not be something that Grail...

    Who is the "seer" (Bleedingcool's word) narrating that panel? Is it Grail's mother? If it is her, or some other Amazons seer, it's interesting that she says Diana is "carrying on the mission the gods...

    Who knows? It appears likely that she wants something from him, if she is, as I'm guessing, the "force" to which the solicit refers; if she is that "force" but doesn't want anything from him, then...

    Yeah, but I don't think we really know that Power Ring's ring is unique in the whole multiverse, anymore than the other JL items Grails is carrying are.



    Yep. could be.

    How can you tell that one of her yellow power rings is Jessica's, and that both of these rings are not from another earth or earths?

    Well, no--as you can see, I didn't suggest that Batman might be in love with her. What I said was more like the other way around; I said maybe she's obsessed with him and wants to turn him into her...

    Could she herself be from the Paradise Island of Earth-2 or another? The Amazons' clothes struck me as looking pretty different from what we've seen on the main earth's Paradise Island. And I gather...

    What H's? Do you mean the two buckles (one on his belt and one on his sash)? I thought they were just buckles--specifically "side release buckles," which are pretty typically H-shaped, without...

    They've both done great work, and unless somehow in the fullness of time they both direct versions of Wonder Woman, we'll never really know who was potentially the better fit. Maclaren's a more...

    As usual, it depends which classical text you read. The identification of Pallas as a titan, and son of Eurybia and Crius, is found in an older source; it comes from Hesiod's Theogony, 700-800 B.C.:...

    She's not as accomplished as Bigelow or Taymor, but give her a couple of decades; those two are 21 to 22 years older than her. By "extraordinarily successful," I meant, of course, she's...

    Maybe a son of Ares? I'm guessing that someone is going to challenge Wonder Woman for the right to be War; it just seems like a good reason for Diana to suddenly decide to travel to War's realm and...

    I don't really know. Obviously there was violence in Monster, but maybe not the kind of fights you mean, if you mean symmetrical, extended, intricately choreographed fights between characters who...

    I still don't see what you find so significant about this. She was a 32-year-old woman who had just made her first full-length feature, which garnered her two Independent Voices nominations and a...

    OK, but a one-dimensional "god of dark bloodshed" probably wouldn't go around spouting euphemisms to ideologically justify war. If me mwans "brutally slay everyone," that's what he'd say, and he'd...

    Cool. The "William Marston" interpretation would make it a nice Easter egg, especially if the in-story explanation is that its the Amazon symbol for "Loving Submission" or some other idea that...

    Maybe it's not a W, just like Superman's S is not an S but a Kryptonian symbol. What looks to us like a W could be some kind of Amazon symbol.
