    I'd love to see more of Giganta in this book. Heck, I would have preferred to see Minister Blizzard or the Blue Snowman in place of Major Disaster in this issue.

    Major Disaster sort of is a perfect WW rogue though, his powers do come from Gaea.

    Yeah, he's pretty much always been a conflicted villain and by the time of Obsidian Age, he was at least trying to be a good guy.

    Honestly, he is a pretty good choice for a Wonder Woman villain. Green Lantern isn't using him anymore, and he's right up Diana's alley: he's a violent and arrogant man who is nevertheless redeemable.
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    It is pretty sad that Major Disaster is getting a better showing than Giganta (one of her most iconic foes).

    I loved Joe Kelly's run on JLA and really miss the good guy Major Disaster.

    I would buy this issue for the art alone but I'm still going to wait to see if it's any good before I even think of purchasing this title again.

    What did Robinson even do with her in the last arc?

    And someone who had an advance copy didn't have great things to say it, either, particularly about what happens to Julia Kapatelis...
    end of spoilers
    I have a bad feeling about everything going forward.

    Why in the world did you need "Rebirth" to rework the foundation to do this?

    I'm not sure what you mean, other than that he can create earthquakes among other disasters. Originally his powers came from devices he paid criminal scientists to create for him. Using them repeatedly caused the powers to be internalized.Then he made a deal with Neron to amplify his powers (at the cost of his soul). It all looks like super-science boosted by infernal magic; I'm not sure how Gaea is involved.
