Weekly Wonder Woman: Forever Evil: ARGUS #6, DC Universe v Masters of the Universe #4

Forever Evil: ARGUS #5

Time for our round-up of Wonder Woman’s appearances in DC comics this week. Just a couple of cameos this time round. Forever Evil: ARGUS #6 continues where #5 left off – Steve Trevor on a quest for Wonder Woman’s lasso, which is currently in possession of Wonder Woman’s former friend and now arch nemesis Cheetah. Once again, most of it consists of Trevor trying to prove absolutely definitely that he’s not just Diana’s ex-boyfriend; once again, I think he doth protest too much.

In particular, thanks to the arrival of the DC Universe versions of the Morai/Fates…

…we have a flashback to a point during the recent ‘Trinity War’ – where incidentally we learn that when Wonder Woman’s using her own lasso, she can’t lie either – when Steve asked Diana if she loved him. This is probably not the answer he was looking for, though:

I loved you, but I moved on

Ouch. But pick your moments, Steve.

Masters of the Universe vs DC Universe #6

Meanwhile, the somewhat dreary Masters of the Universe crossover finally ends after six issues of nonsense. As usual, it’s better for the Masters of the Universe side of things than the DC side. Wondy does turn up in Greece, still possessed by Skeletor/Dark Orko/Whoever Because I Can’t Remember Now…

…which is nice. But beyond that, she’s largely there to offer Batman help with the redecoration.

Oh well. Let’s just say you didn’t miss much if you didn’t read it.
