Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman

It may not be the end of the month any more, but that's not enough to stop Diana from popping up in various titles last week. As well as the usual appearances by Elseworld Dianas in Injustice: Gods Among Us - Year 5 and The Legend of Wonder Woman, we saw the return of TV Diana (and assorted comic book enemies) in Wonder Woman '77.

And for those of you who hadn't realised that the 'Savage Dawn' Vandal Savage crossover story is still ongoing, be surprised, because it's continuing in Action Comics #49: Supes is out of chemo, he's got a shiny new set of powers, and it turns out that when you give the boy from Krypton his little blue green pill to help him get over his impotence, he stops feeling sorry for himself and remembers he's got a girlfriend.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #48, Superman-Wonder Woman #25, Superman #48, Titans Hunt #4 et al

The observant will notice that last week, Wonder Woman did a bunk and didn't bother turning up on this 'ere blog for her weekly round-up of comic book appearances. I don't know why. Was it something I said?

Well, obviously I do know the real reason, as Wonder Woman is a fictional character - it was my usual end-of-month workload meaning that I didn't have time. So I figured, what the hell, I can just roll them over to next week, forgetting, of course, that the end of the month is also now when DC Comics unleashes a deluge of Wondy titles upon us. Oops. That's my morning gone, then.

So after the jump, in perhaps sketchier detail than I would like, you'll find looks at: Aquaman #48, DC Comics: Bombshells #28, Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year 5 #5-6, Justice League of America #7, Sinestro #19, Superman #48, Superman-Wonder Woman #25, The Legend of Wonder Woman #11-12, Titans Hunt #4 and Wonder Woman #48. As a little bit of a game, guess which old school Wonder Woman villain and villainess make their return, as well as which old school Wonder Woman favourite made no fewer than two returns in those titles.

It's also been a busy fortnight for Wondy in other media. We've had the unveiling of a new trailer for Batman v Superman, in which it's revealed that rather than flying herself or using an invisible jet, movie-Diana uses Turkish Airlines to get about.

Whether that's an indication that the Amazons still live in the Themyscira of Asia Minor, rather than Paradise Island, or whether it's simply because Turkish Airlines is the movie's official airline partner (that's a thing, apparently), I can't say, but we'll find out in March.

We also have the news that Cartoon Network is working on a new series of 11-minute episodes of Justice League Action that will feature not only Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman again, but also the rest of the Trinity - no word on who's doing Diana's voice, though. Surely, Susan Eisenberg's a shoo-in?

And on top of all that excitement, we've got a trailer for the next animated DC movie, Justice League vs Teen Titans. Guess what happens in that.
