Wonder Woman 613, or How Diana Got Her Groove Back

[personal profile] shadowpsykie already posted four three pages of how Diana got here. Here's three one more pages showing how Diana gets the best of Nemesis.

As seen below, Original Flavor Diana is now a host for Nemesis. Clotho split off a fragment of Di, her innocent self, and created the Odyssey world to keep her safe and have her raised in the Amazon tradition despite the destruction of the island. As they fight, Nemesis!Di explains that she doesn't need nu!Diana to keep her foothold in the world, but to keep the world's hatred and murder flowing, she has to bring its greatest noblest warrior to heel. So she set about destroying everyone and everything nu!Diana loves, to crush her spirit and make her hate the modern world.

nu!Diana drops the little sketch of Wonder Woman her young friend gave her at Nemesis' feet, and explains that as she lived in the modern world she became part of it - its inhabitants are her brothers and sisters now. So, she's still a noble champion.

"Let's be Wonder Woman again." Heroic splash page ahoy!

"It didn't work. It could never work...The soul of an amazon could never be bent to your brand of hate. I could NEVER be your champion," Diana says to the fading out of the Morrigan.

But she doesn't notice the Morrigan reappear behind her, and grab the big-ass sword. "In that case, Diana of Themiscyra...YOU CAN DIE!!!" dun dun DUNNNNN

I'm not a huge fan of this storyline, but at least it seems to be going somewhere, unlike Grounded.

My thoughts too, pretty much.

I think it's a fairly fun alt-timeline. Considering Diana *never* gets cool elseworlds stories, that gets a plus in my book.

SO Diana used a Fusion Strand to fuse with... Diana?

Better than the Fusion Dance...

But not better than the Neutron Dance

Why yes, I AM a child of the 80's, why do you ask? :)

That last line feels so delightfully meta I think I might tear up a little.

not just the line. the Artist REALLY nails it here her stance, her grace, that smile, you can SEE that THIS is Diana.

it brings the kind of joy to me that that panel where she flies for the first time did as well

I'm very glad they didn't get the artist from the preview. I mean, it'd have been a similar pose, but her face would be completely smeared with Nose, just like of all his.

yeah i have to say. i love these scenes. The issue imho was not as good as the Dr.Psycho one (but that might have been just me not expecting him to appear, let alone save her, plus i liked the whole Wonder woman is a pilliar of creation, type story)

the "I'm crying for you" and the "They are my Brothers and sisters now " really felt like Diana to me.

And now Diana can be darker and angsty! Because she merged with evil!

Instead of letting evil merge with HER like in the case of Darkseid.

No she didn't. Nu!Diana and "Old"!Diana merged. Nemesis was expelled.

So, nothing changed, ugh this story.

yes... things did change... Both sides of Diana, her former strength and her new strength have now merged and she now has the strength to take on Nemesis

If you want to be REALLY cynical, nothing matters before the reboot!

I'm sorry, I'M SORRY, because this is pretty grand and I really like that last line, but - this comic was only released two days ago according to, and that means that only four pages of the issue can be posted. Either you or shadowpyskie are going to have to sub out three, I'm afraid!

Don't worry! It's an easy mistake to make. Thanks for cutting it down!

If you end up cutting this post, do remember that once the issue isn't recent any more it can be re-posted. It IS a great sequence.

As villainous plans go, this seems to lack a certain logic.

Rather nice art though. And I still like the nuPants. :D

The lack of logic can be explained pretty easily by it being the plan of the goddess of revenge. No rationality required, really.

If it'd worked properly, Diana was supposed to end up leading an army of the dead and powerful enough to kill off any hero that fought her, like we saw in the vision recently.

Ah, the selfslash, one of the rarer and more... interesting slashes.
As SWAIM once put it, fight or fuck.

I'm confused... does she have her old memory back?
