Issue 197
Back on the publicity trail!

While this is going on, Veronica Cale is a'schemin',

The action then cuts briefly to a public relations company in New York, where they are assembling a fairly large document detailing how Diana's book can be deconstructed to critise her for a group called "Protect Our Children", who believe that Diana's out to corrupt the youth of America.

An empolyee of the PR company that is sympathetic to Diana hands the document to her embassy staff instead, who use the notes in a debate that I will be posting shortly.

Diana is distracted from the campaign trail by a blue bird telling her about a large forest fire in Colorado that the Flash is having difficulty dealing with, so she take a break to go and give him a hand. Unfortunately for her, "giving a hand" means allowing the forest to burn so that the new plants would have a chance to grow, and these supposedly apathetic words are caught by a near by TV crew.

Wonder Woman goes back on the promotion circuit,

Issue 198
Fallout from Diana's comments regarding forest fires reaches her staff as it's used to fuel the furnace of the criticism against her book,

Hm, firing point. Any relation to a certain "debate" show that Jon Stewart got cancelled a couple of years back? Or his equivalent in the DCU, maybe that stand-in they had for him in the 'Public Enemies' DVD movie they made?

Anyway, the debate between Diana's head of staff and Keyes, the head of the protest group that have been campaigning against her book,

And that's pretty much it for the things in the series regarding Diana's book, except her the two group of protesters being turned into a violent mob by Dr Psycho anyways.

Basically both the Amazons and the US government end up with a lot more things to worry about than just someone's book of essays, which I'm sure that Bluefall or someone could explain a lot more coherently than I can.

There are however, a couple of pages from the back of the trade this storyline was collected in, 'Down to Earth', that had opinions and fake articles regarding 'Reflections', Diana and the Amazons, but I'm not sure if I can fit them in under the work count as the trade doesn't specify if they're trade-only things.

If someone let me know if they're in the issues or not it'd be great, as they're interesting and I'd like to post them if the rules permit me to.

Superheroes and villains come back to life only all the time. Nothin' divine about it.

How many do so because you pray to them in worship, though?

All of 'em. None of 'em. Depends on who you ask, I suspect. That Superman cult probably credits itself with Kon-el's return, for example.

Also, the power of Love (and superscience) can bring people back to life. Worship's a type of love, right?

Not quite. Not even in Christianity. Worship is more about keeping the Gods from messing with mortals because they're pissed off than actual love. And this is with the touchy-feely "God lubs oo" Theme Park version of the Christian God as opposed to the one that is actually described in the Bible. Who simply comes across as an overachiever and a bigger jackass as an individual than the entire Greek Pantheon did.
