In keeping with this 'ere blog's slightly unplanned 'pagan week', it's time for the (increasingly belated) monthly round-up of the comic-book appearances of everyone's favourite pagan superheroine, Wonder Woman.
After March's month of face-palming, April proved to be a somewhat better month for our Wondy, with the Amazon princess finally giving Orion the punching he deserved in Wonder Woman #19, going to Lois Lane's house-warming and giving her new secret identity, Diana Prince, its first real outing in Superman #19, and trying to set the world to rights by kicking terrorists' asses with her new boyfriend in Justice League #19. Unfortunately, though, it looks like nothing can save Injustice: Gods Among Us from being facepalm-central.
I'm also adding to the roster of comics: after trying to save my pennies, I've had to play catch up with Justice League of America #1-3, seeing as Diana features quite heavily. Kind of. And all I'll say about that that not-so-illustrious title until after the jump is "What the hell is Catwoman not wearing?"

It's time, once again, for our monthly round-up of all things Wonder Woman in comics. And what a month, because despite the end of the H'El on Earth storyline in Superman/Supergirl/Superboy and the crossover in Batwoman, it's been
well, maybe not momentous, but whatever it's been, I'm not sure I have enough hands for the facepalms required to deal with it all.
Wonder Woman #18 sees the end of the hunt for Zola's baby (finally); Justice League #18 mostly has Wonder Woman alternating between standing around a lot and hitting things; Superman #18 is Wonder Woman-free yet has referenced our heroine rather a lot thanks to the arrival of Orion; and in Injustice: Gods Among Us, it's all out war between the superheroes and everyone else, including each other, with Wondy standing by her man.
Which ones required the most facepalms? I'll give you a clue: it's fortunately the only one where Wonder Woman is literally flirting with Superman over Lois Lane's dead body.

Sorry for the slightly later than normal review - I was holding out for Superman #17 and the end of the H'el on Earth storyline (guest starring the Justice League and Wonder Woman), which was supposed to come out this week
but didn't. Guess that'll have to wait until next time.
But February was a bit of a bumper month for Wonder Woman. As well as her own title and the end of the Throne of Atlantis storyline in Justice League, H'El on Earth has seen her show up in Superboy #17 trying to save Superman; in Supergirl #17, she's once and for all proven the inequality Wonder Woman > Supergirl > Superman; her rather dreadful crossover with Batwoman finally comes to an end in Batwoman #17; Injustice: Gods Among Us #5-6 give us a possibly inappropriately flirty, possibly political Wonder Woman; and in Young Romance #1, Supes and Wondy go on another date together, which naturally goes pear-shaped.
