Weekly Wonder Woman: Man of Steel #1, Doomsday Clock #5, Man of Steel #1, Doomsday Clock #5 and Justice League: No Justice #4

Every week (or fortnight), Weekly Wonder Woman keeps you up to date on everything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine

It’s been another slow news week in the realm of things wondrous, so let’s head straight into the comics. Except… it’s been a bit slow there, too.

She gets a mention in Man of Steel #1, where it’s revealed she might not be as tall as you think she is.

Taller Than Wonder Woman

Meanwhile, just in case you were wondering what’s happened to Diana in Doomsday Clock, it seems she’s disappeared, as she’s not listed in the guide to superheroes around the world at the back of issue #5. However, Wonder-Woman, her Chinese counterpart, does get a mention.

World-Wide Superheroes

Hmm. Is this an elseworld? It’s all starting to feel like Geoff Johns is trying to do an Alan Moore – use Watchmen to comment on superheroes without using the real versions. A DC Universe without Diana? I don’t think so.

Lastly, Justice League: No Justice is winding up at last with issue #4, in typical nonsensical fashion, with Diana having to fashion a Wonderseed or something.

However, from tiny acorns, etc, etc, as Diana’s off to head up Justice League: Dark, as she feels like she might have some magical qualities hitherto unexplored.

Justice League Dark

Gosh. Some new developments and possibly new powers for Diana. That would be nice…

Not much news since last FWW. However, there’s now a trailer for the next DC Animated Universe movie, The Death of Superman, based on the 90s comic strip of the same name, in which Superman got clobbered by Doomsday (Ed: This is the second animated movie adaptation, on top of Batman v Superman, of that strip. Get some new ideas, DC).

Unlike the original comic, which IIRC didn’t feature any other superheroes bar Supes, this has got the rest of the Justice League in it, including our Diana (Rosario Dawson), who seems to get beaten up a lot. Hmm. Also, isn’t Superman supposed to be dating Wonder Woman as per the nu52 in the DCAU?

That’s out somewhere between July 24 and August 7 in the US, depending on whom you ask.

After the jump, let’s talk comics with the latest issues of Wonder Woman, Justice League: No Justice and The Brave and the Bold. See you in a mo!

Last week, not only was I bit busy with work anyway, but there was literally no news or comics featuring Wonder Woman for me to review anyway, which is why there was – as predicted – no WWW/FWW. But Diana’s back this week in two titles and there’s news, too!

Comics news

Wonder Woman Annual #2 has been postponed by a week and on top of that, Wonder Woman is going to be $1 more expensive per issue as of #50. Cripes. Bet you wish there hadn’t been news after all, hey?

Merchandise news

If you’ve roughly $700 to spare and liked the nu52 Diana enough to spend that $700 on a single statue, you can pre-order this shiny thing:

New statue

Cripes.

Comics reviews

That just leaves this week’s new releases: Wonder Woman #46, which starts off a new ‘Dark Gods’ storyline; and Justice League: No Justice #1, which starts off a new ‘Really Dark Gods’ storyline. All that after the jump.

More birthday celebrations last week (and probably work next week because of the Bank Holiday) means WWW is likely to be FWW for the next few weeks at least. Still, given that seems to work for DC, why not for WWW, too?

Not a huge amount of news this fortnight, mind: Patty Jenkins has confirmed that Wonder Woman 2 will be set in the 1980s, while Joss Whedon has defended his own unmade script for Wonder Woman:

But that’s your lot, so let’s head straight to the comics. Just the usual suspects, as far as I know, although of course that number is set to diminish very soon. So after the jump, let’s talk about Wonder Woman #45, Justice League #43, The Brave and the Bold #3 and the final issue of Trinity, #22.

Back again! Yes, that fabulous Christian/Anglo Saxon festival of Easter probably isn’t celebrated on Themyscira, but TMINE had the week off anyway. So what happened to Diana in the past fortnight? Let’s find out…

Movie news

Nothing new was revealed about Wonder Woman 2 et al, but Wonder Woman has turned out to be the most profitable superhero movie of 2017, ranking number six in the top ten films with US$252.9 million in profit. That puts it US$52.8 million above Spider-man: Homecoming and even more in front of Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2. Not bad, hey, and certainly better than, erm, Justice League.

TV news

Lynda Carter’s been up to lots of late, including an interview with the New York Times.

Comics news

DC has been celebrating Unicorn Day with the help of Wonder Woman (and the rest of the Trinity):

DC’s also been asking whether Wonder Woman or Aquaman would win in a fight. Most think Diana would come out top. Duh.

In an effort to raise funds for Puerto Rico, various comics writers and artists are working on a book, Ricanstruction, that you can now pre-order. As well as Puerto Rican superheroine La Borinqueña, our Diana’s set to appear not just on the cover (courtesy of Tony Daniel) but also in a story or two.

Merchandise news

It’s just been confirmed that in the Rebirth Universe, there’s plenty of Wonder Woman merchandise available, including T-shirts for men.

Comic reviews

Three notable appearances in the DC Universe by our Diana in the past fortnight, as well as one not so notable appearance. On the last point, she showed up in Teen Titans #22 to tell Donna Troy to know her place:

Titans #22

But after the jump, we’ll be looking at the biggies: Justice League #42, in which she’s slightly dead; Trinity #21, in which she fights a lot; and Wonder Woman #44, in which she hits Darkseid for a bit.
