    I think the WW comic has been a Jason miniseries, since #38, at least.

    I imagine Jason settling into Herc's Twin Peaks (Elexinore) cabin or Diana's London townhouse ..and just training like hell, for awhile. I think he needs a less busy, less armored-up uniform and to learn to incorporate his elemental powers, more effectively, into his fighting skills. I also want to see him master deflecting attack, with his armored wristbands, ..like a proper Amazon!. Maybe, he could get Zola and I Ching or Mister Genie to assist him. If you can get a miniseries out of that, good on you!

    That's my Jason fantasy. It's Jason, settled into a London penthouse or American hunting lodge, with two cool, sexy companions, who travel the world and beyond on weird, mind-bending adventures, ..written by WARREN ELLIS [YES!!!]. This is basically what I hoped would be done with Wonder Woman, after the Chiang-Azzarello run, because all the pieces (Zola and a resurrected, semi-mortal War) were in place to do exactly that. That would have been so so-ooo cool, but, it would work just as well, if not better, ..with Jason! Why can't I have that ..AND an action figure?!

    That aside, I think the best thing that could happen to this character, right now, is putting him in the Justice League and letting him develop his own fanbase. He's basically a Captain Marvel/Storm combo platter, traditionally masculine and rugged - he's going to be tremendously popular! Let the folks, who drove James off of Twitter, attack Jason - let them try - and the Internet will deal with them [No violence.], ..while we cheer them on! I honestly don't think anyone reading the WW comic will care, at that point, and Jason will be free to do what I think [Think...] he was created to do: expand the Wonder-brand, ..without hogging Diana's panel-time.

    He needs a hero codename, though. I'm partial to Argonaut, but, since he's already a captain...maybe, Captain Wonder? Maybe, that will happen in WW #49, ..though I'm surprised the JLers didn't give him a name in WW #48.

    This comic doesn't even feel like its about WW anymore. I feel like she's barely been in it. Jason seems to be the main character, there was also quite a lot of Grail and Darkseid which also meant less Diana. WW seems like she's become a bit part in her own book. I really enjoyed Rucka's run, and liked the balance between all the characters most of the time. Everyone had some spotlight and time to shine without side-lining Diana.

    If he isn't sacrificed to the Dark Gods, I'm kind of feeling Jason settling in Elexinore too Mel.

    I know Nightwing has already picked his Titans team and it has Donna on it, but I feel like that's a natural place for him. With their new mission to handle emerging and evolving superheroes, I could see him learning from them and some drama between him and Donna, based on how she was created by the Amazons and he's the lost son and essentially unknown by the Amazons. It's rough out here for the Amazons in these streets who aren't "true" Amazons.

    There's no chance they'll add him to the team, but he might do well there. He definitely needs guidance at any rate. Falling for Grail's machinations, he's not the brightest star in the sky and kind of impulsive and reckless - regardless of invoking Athena's wisdom from his supersuit. Which I like about him, but may make his attempts to do good backfire on him. Besides, he's been alone and in hiding for so long, and that's not really his character, that I can see him wanting to superhero on a team with gusto.

    I'm at a loss for a superhero moniker for him at the moment...

    Well...with Geoff Johns's departure from DC Comics, I don't imagine that Jason and Grail have the editorial protection that they did, with him around. Furthermore, the WW 1984 film offers Cheetah as the super-villain; so, Grail, though conceptually a perfect enemy for Diana, may be fading fast from archenemy-in-training status.

    Diana working out of her London penthouse, with Zola and a resurrected, mortal War, as her companions - Steve dropping, here and there - would have been a great set-up for the WW comic. With James Robinson leaving the comic, I would gladly take Etta and I Ching (or Ferdinand) in Zola's and War's places, in a Warren Ellis comic...maybe, working out of Gateway City? Argona...I mean 'Jason Man', up the coast in Elexinore?

    Jason's showing in WW #48 makes a case for that.

    That'd be one way to insure I never read him again, with how bad that annual was.

    Yup. That is where I have been for the last decade.

    Haven't picked up the monthly title since dropping it mid run during the Azz debacle. There doesn't seem a reason to start over again.

    The story is pretty brief - Jason fights some of the Dark Gods who then teleport away leaving only King Best in his monolith form. Mob God or whatever (ugh; as I said in the preview thread, these Dark Gods have some of the worst names in comic book history) is causing riots and driving people mad. Supergirl shows up to help Jason, followed by the Justice League (sans Superman for whatever reason; but it is the newest incarnation of the team which I guess is neat). They all help Jason briefly but then disappear (I *think* King Best teleported them away? I read it sort of in a rush this morning) leaving Jason to confront King Best himself. However, just in the nick of time, Diana appears and tells him that she will help him, as the entire issue Jason has all the power of the gods in his armor but laments about how he's not worthy/skilled/good.

    So... yeah. Frustrating issue. Is this run over yet?
    Actually, iím One of the 2% that likes jason, and would love to see him somewhere else. Kind of intrigued by the WW / star sapphire connection.

    Maybe he could team up with the signal!��
