Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman

It was a relatively quiet week last week for our Diana… if you discount the massively big spoilers for Wonder Woman that a French magazine has revealed (I'll spoiler cloak them for you if you don't want to read them):

Why did Zeus create the Amazons? Because shaping man in his image made his son Ares, incidentally a god of war, mad with jealousy, he convinces the guys to confront each other. To restore harmony between them, Zeus created the Amazons that Ares reduced to slavery. The Amazons revolt with the help of Zeus, who will die of the hand of his son having had time to find Themyscira, their haven of peace where they will grow Diana. (…) Diana Prince becomes Wonder Woman by helping Steve Trevor and a squad of proud arm-in-law in search of one who wants to wipe humanity off the map with deadly gas.

That's not my translation, BTW (sacre bleu!).

Anyway, if true, that's an interesting amalgam of all the Wonder Woman origin stories, including Greg Rucka's current one and even Joss Whedon's failed movie script, that's probably going to annoy every fan with a minimum of one detail - you pick which one annoys you most - not least because it's now about a couple of gods rather than at least one goddess. Let's see how it all pans out on-screen, though.

In comics, there's not a been much new. The first issue of Justice League/Power Rangers turned up but beyond the alternative cover, no Diana.

She calls on gods, he calls on the power of a T-rex. Meet Jason, the Red Ranger, in JUSTICE LEAGUE/POWER RANGERS! http://bit.ly/2jc8SEt

That means that after the jump, we'll be looking at Wonder Woman (Rebirth) #14, Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77 #4 and Justice League vs Suicide Squad #4, but not necessarily in that order. See you in a click.

Weekly Wonder Woman: the Christmas and New Year releases

Posted on January 10, 2017 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to the month Earth #2 Wonder Woman celebrates in honour of the two-headed god Janus. 

How's that for a niche nerd intro?

Anyway, as usual, I go away for a couple of weeks and suddenly, all the comics are released - yes, all of them - and all the news is revealed - yes, all of it - so I'm going to have to be brief with my reviews this week.

In news, as well as confirmation that both Lex Luthor and Hippolyta are going to be in Justice League, we've had a few new images released from both that movie and Wonder Woman:

The Justice League

Director Patty Jenkins has been chatting a bit about Diana's motivation, as well as the reason for the WWI setting of Wonder Woman - something that contains a very important word that I will highlight a lot:

“My approach was to focus on telling the story of mechanised war and how that would look to a god visiting our world for the first time. I wanted the audience to understand the horrors that a war on this scale makes possible and how shocking that would be to someone who comes with a strong sense of honor and justice. She doesn’t realise yet just how senselessly dark the world can be.”

And another image has Diana getting her sword for the first time:

Diana gets her sword

What's notable about that is Entertainment Weekly's description of the sword:

In the image, Wonder Woman has broken into the Amazonian armory and is stealing their fabled weapon known as “the god killer.”

That's new. Of course, 'the god killer' sword did feature in the recent Tony Daniel Deathstroke run, and Diana does have a sword capable of splitting atoms, but Diana's never owned one officially described as 'the god killer' before. And why would she need a 'god killer' during World War I, I wonder? 

Also, IIRC, the only time Diana's ever stolen her armour and/or weapons was in… the old Justice League cartoon series. Hmm - <Rowan and Martin's Laugh In voice>very interesting</Rowan and Martin's Laugh In voice>.

Talking of said series, though, the new Justice League Action is still going strong, with crazy old James Woods as crazy old Lex Luthor getting the power of Zeus and a certain nu52 power couple still canon:

Meanwhile, in case you ever wanted to know how to draw Wonder Woman in the style of Lynda Carter, here's Cat Staggs telling you how:

After the jump, let's talk (briefly I'm afraid) about all the DC comics I spotted since the previous WWW that featured the Amazon princess: Aquaman #13, Batman '66 meets Wonder Woman '77 #3, Dark Knight III #7, Justice League (Rebirth) #11, Justice League v Suicide Squad #1-3, Trinity #4 and Wonder Woman (Rebirth) #13.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Wonder Woman (Rebirth) #12

Wonder Woman on horse back from Wonder Woman (2017)

This week, it's the last Weekly Wonder Woman for a couple of weeks, since Christmas, Saturnalia, Hanukkah and various other holiday celebrations are on their way - Happy/Merry Whatevs to you all. It's also the last WWW of the year, since 2017 is just round the corner now. 

Despite all of that, the news hasn't been letting up much in the past week. People are still mighty miffed about Wonder Woman no longer being an honourary UN ambassador. Current Wonder Woman artist Nicola Scott has penned something for The Guardian about the move. Even TIME magazine has had something to say about it - as well as the forthcoming movie - arguing that we need Wonder Woman now.

Talking of movies, there's also been a new image released from Justice League featuring you-know-who and some of her besties:

Meanwhile, back in the comics world, a solicitation copy of the original Wonder Woman #1 has just been sold for $291,100, which is something of a record. Less happily, Volume 2 of The Legend of Wonder Woman has just been cancelled halfway through being created.

No one's entirely sure why, although certain Tweets by the creators about the forthcoming Odyssey of the Amazons might be the cause - indeed, DC now says it's down to a "challenging relationship" with De Liz and Dillon caused by what they've been Tweeting. Poor little DC.

After the jump, we'll be looking at the only non-Elseworlds DC comic to feature our Diana last week, Wonder Woman (Rebirth) #12. Worried that you won't have much to read this fortnight, though? Don't. As well as a new issue of Trinity as well as the various crossover titles involving Batman '66, The Bionic Woman and Wonder Woman '77, tomorrow marks the start of the first big Rebirth crossover: Justice Leauge vs Suicide Squad. How thrilled are you? A little bit? Maybe a teeny bit? Oh, you saw Suicide Squad. Fair dos.

Justice League v Suicide Squad
