Weekly Wonder Woman: Sensation Comics #29-30, Batman and Robin #30

Sensation Comics #30

It’s Weekly Wonder Woman, which depending on how you view these things is either six days late or one day early. Just to explain, last week was a bit of a desert, with only Sensation Comics #29 offering us anything featuring the Amazon princess, and as it was a two-part story, I decided to roll it into this week’s reviews. And as I might be a bit busy tomorrow, I figured I might as well do everything today instead. There’s lovely, hey? In fact, I might do it again next week, the fact it being Good Friday in the UK next Friday having almost nothing to do with that particular decision. Oh no.

So after the jump, we’ll dive into Sensation Comics #29-30 as Wonder Woman defends an over-sexualised Miley Cyrus-alike from a crazy mansplainer. But as an added fillip, we’ve also got a guest appearance by Wondy and the rest of the Justice League in Batman and Robin #30. That Robin’s only gone and got himself some superpowers, which means Batman needs help keeping the young whippersnapper in line…

Will Black Widow turn up in Netflix's Daredevil TV series? She almost did in the 70s…

Probably not, though. I mean if they couldn’t get Scarlett Johansson for Marvel’s Agent Carter, which actually had the entire Black Widow programme’s back story in it, what chance a Netflix TV appearance, no matter how good it might look?

Back in 1975, things might have been different. Angela Bowie acquired the TV rights to both Daredevil and Black Widow for all of a year and tried to create a TV series based on the two characters. That got as far as a photo shoot with actor Benny Carruthers as Daredevil and Bowie as Black Widow.

However, it was considered too difficult and expensive to film, so nothing happened. A shame or small blessings? You decide…

PS I should probably say “Next time, baby” for the full Iron Man effect. It’s not really me, though.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Three #24, Sensation Comics #28

It’s another quiet week in DC land, with once again only Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Three and Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman giving us new stories and/or appearances by the Amazon princess. Sensation Comics gives us a one-issue battle between Diana and a dragon, but could someone else be behind it all?

Meanwhile, over on Injustice, it’s a momentous issue, because it marks the end of both the current storyline and Year Three altogether! How will we all cope until Year Four starts, I wonder?

How about with this video of Wonder Woman kicking everyone’s head in on the video game – it amounts to the same thing and is a tad more edifying, too.
