Weekly Wonder Woman: Convergence: Wonder Woman #1, Sensation Comics #31

Wonder Woman: Convergence

The death match that is Convergence is now well under way at DC. No, really, I’m not being metaphorical. It really is a death match – all superheroes from all DC continuities are stuck under domes and are being asked to fight one another to see who’s the winner.

How edifying.

Anyway, until now, we’ve not seen Wonder Woman – any Wonder Woman – joining in with the action, but this week, we’ve had the first issue of Convergence: Wonder Woman. Who do you think DC will have chosen for the first fight? William Marston’s Wonder Wonder (woot, woot!)? Odyssey Wonder Woman (they could do worse)? Flashpoint Wonder Woman (oh, surely not…)?

You’ll find out after the jump, although the true Wonder Woman nerd will be able to tell from the typeface used on the cover above who it is.

Also this week, it’s tag team time, as Wonder Woman ’77 swaps places with Sensation Comics in the release schedule, with Wonder Woman teaming up with Poison Ivy to fight a dragon. But which Wonder Woman is this? Well, like Wonder Woman ’77 it’s perhaps every Wonder Woman. I’ll explain after the jump.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman '77 #5-6

Convergence is upon us. However, beyond a brief appearance by Futures End Wonder Woman in issue #2…

Futures End Wonder Woman in Convergence #2

…that’s pretty much been her only appearance so far, as far as I can tell.

That means this week I’ll only be looking over issues #5-6 of Wonder Woman ’77. If you remember, when last we left her, Lynda Carter Wonder Woman was having a fight with Cathy Lee Crosby Wonder Woman and wondering if she was the real thing or not. Now, in the conclusion of the story, we discover who’s the true Wonder Woman as a plethora of villains turn up for a fight that only the real thing can finish.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman #40, Superman/Wonder Woman #17, Wonder Woman '77 #4

As I prepare to take a week off next week, I note the happy timing – this is precisely what’s happening at DC for the next month or two. Yes, the publisher of Wonder Woman comics is off taking a break as it moves offices from New York to Los Angeles, so as to be better geared up for movie/money synergies.

Ugh.

While everyone’s filling boxes and the likes, no one’s going to have much time for that editing and printing lark, so in the place of the regularly advertised comics, we’re getting the BIGGEST EVENT EVAH!

Convergence.

It’s not really the biggest event ever, you know. Initially, it was going to just be a sort of Sensation Comics writ large for all the DC titles, with a whole bunch of stories set in previous continuities (Golden Age, Silver Age, Post-Crisis, Kingdom Come, Red Son et al) showing up on the shelves for a month or so, just for fun. Except now it’s all been tied in with something involving Brainiac, with Flashpoint Aquaman fighting pre-Flashpoint Justice League and the like, and it’s all going to be important and mean stuff and probably end up with everyone wearing new costumes or something.

Wonder Woman's new costume

In preparation, Sensation Comics has gone on sabbatical, and is set to return on the 23rd April; in its place, we have the return of Wonder Woman ’77, which aptly enough, also appears to have some parallel universe fun going on.

And while Justice League proper is taking a break, too, this week we’ve been left to enjoy new issues of both Wonder Woman and Superman/Wonder Woman, in which Diana chats a lot and takes up a new hobby. Treasure them – they won’t be back until June, now.
