Weekly Wonder Woman: Trinity #7, Justice League #17, Wonder Woman Meets The Bionic Woman #3

With the movie getting ever closer, naturally the number of tie-ins to Wonder Woman is increasing. For example, new to the list is a Diana Prince Funko toy, which has a removable shield. Surprisingly enough, Steve Trevor is going to get a single issue of his own comicWonder Woman: Steve Trevor #1, as well. How exciting. Imagine how many people are going to be pleased by that.

Meanwhile, assuming you haven’t been too busy designing your own bracelets to read any comics, you may have noticed a few new titles featured Diana this week: Trinity #7, Justice League #17 and Wonder Woman Meets The Bionic Woman #3. We can chat about them after the jump.

Trinity (Rebirth) #7

Trinity (Rebirth)#7

Ra’s Al Ghul, Lex Luthor and Circe the Witch all have dreams that take them to an ancient location where there are ‘Pandora Pits’ that can create super-powered life. After facing a creature made from their collective fears, they discover their arrival has been foretold…

What does Diana do?
Not a lot. Although we get a flashback to Circe fighting the nu52 Diana, that’s it, since it’s really all about the forging of the new ‘Trinity of Doom’ (© Me).

Extra notes
Rebirth Circe looks like a combination of both nu52 Circe and DCYou Circe.

Whether the Greg Rucka Circe (she’s coming, I tells ‘ya) will look the same is a good question, though. Also, whoever thought that gestalt version of the Trinity’s costume was a good idea needs to sit down and have a word with themself.

JL (Rebirth) #17

Justice League #17
With ructions afoot in the Rebirth universe, an enterprising brain-villain has decided that to prevent the antics on Earth affecting the rest of the universe, he’ll use the power of the gods, magic, Green Lanterns and the Speed Force to project the entire solar system billions of years into the future, inside its own bubble.

What does Diana do?
Ally herself with Zeus and Rhea (and eventually their brothers and sisters) to help stop Cronus from consuming them and his power being used by the brain.

Extra notes
As well as confirmation that Olympian energy is a special kind of energy, different to magic et al…

Different energies

…we also get confirmation that the Rebirth Diana believes herself to be related to the gods (although since she’s also doubting pretty much everything else she’s been told, too, maybe she doesn’t).

Diana means divine

We also get our first view in one place of all of Zeus’ brothers and sisters, who are as interestingly diverse as Cronus, Zeus and Rhea. Correct me if I’m wrong, but there only appear to be four of them, though, rather than the usual six (Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Demeter, Hera and Hestia). I wonder why. 

Zeus and his siblings

Although Zeus looks very young at this stage so maybe it’s because they’re all still kids, they don’t like very Cliff Chiang-ish, with the exception of Zeus. Then again, maybe they never did (© Greg Rucka).

BTW, as Rhea correctly recognises Diana’s name to mean ‘divine’, scholars of Proto Indo-European should now be able to fix the earliest possible date for this scene.

Wonder Woman '77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3

Wonder Woman ’77 Meets The Bionic Woman #3
Seeing as only nerds know who any of the villains in this series are, the baddies decide to explain to us in huge flashback detail who they are, including footnotes with the relevant episode names. They also introduce a few other villains from the two TV series, because we hadn’t had enough of those already.

Then they reveal their plot: to create an army of fembots made from Feminum, the metal used to make Wonder Woman’s bracelets!


What does Diana do?
Fly on a missile, capture some bad guys, punch out some fembots, and meet Max, the Bionic Dog.
