Yeah, the Zeus thing turned out to be an utter letdown. Here I was expecting something epic and interesting (which with this creative team isn't an unrealistic expectation) and instead just got "yeah, I fucked this dude and lied about it, sorry". No deeper meaning, just complete abandonment of her old origin.

Hopefully something interesting will come from the fallout, but at the moment I am disappoint.

I can see them calling her that now, given there's an undercurrent of "you betrayed us by going to man's world". But calling her that as a child makes no sense.

And of course she was the only Amazon child, wasn't she? So it would have been a bunch of adults insulting a kid in that case, which doesn't sound right.

Really? I have been referring to her as a golem on forums for years. I figured that referencing the fact that she isn't(wasn't) a real person would have been the go to put down line of choice.

I do like how Strife has just sorta attached herself to the group. Presumably she's amused by this whole business.

I just love this new take on WW...why couldn't we had this right from the start instead of Straczynski "reboot"?...

I don't think that is the case. Remember in #2, when Hermes was telling Zola the clay origin, he said that she was viewed as the perfect Amazon, because no man was involved in conceiving her. It was a nickname of affection. When Diana is sad and mentioning she hasn't been called that since a little girl, I'm thinking that either Diana never felt comfortable with that nickname, or she's sad that they're now using it with disdain. Eris also pretty much speaks in wordplay and puns, so her "children can be so cruel" is probably her saying that these silly little Amazons who are WAY below her were unwittingly being lied to without ever knowing it.

It's the DCnU. What were you expecting? Dignity?

Digging Wondy, not so much the origin.

She's basically a hot, houte-couture troll following them around.

"Hey, Diana! You thought you was made of clay? Dumbass--your mom got knocked up by Zeus! Trolololololol--"

The origin dropped this from 'monthly' to 'tradewait' status for me.

Well, the clue's right there in her name.

Still not interested.

Also, that last shot of Wondy is TERRIBLY not flattering.

welp it was too much to hope for them to go with the DCAU's version of 'I made you out of clay, but this one male god helped me make it' huh

they had to go with the 'yup I fucked him' thing

well I suppose I should be thankful Hippolyta wasn't raped by Zeus, and that it was consensual sex with Zeus that produced Diana I guess

*sigh*

I'm sticking with Perez.

Am I the only one who is terribly in love with this book? I've always loved Wonder Woman as a character but rarely enjoyed her in comics; she usually is just shoved in there between Bruce and Clark and her own books bored me with few exceptions. Yet, there is something about this book that just makes me think Wonder Woman has a purpose. She stops snobby gods from toying with mortals like puppets she IS as important as Batman and Superman if not more significant. I just love how she's portrayed here. Beautiful yet strong, her costume could have a little more Greek influence but overall I love this book.

I want to go back to Straczynski's version. At least that was respectful of what Wonder Woman symbolized and who she was.

This? This is Rule 63 Hercules.

I never liked how a majority of the women in the new DC Universe have been nothing but fu** buddies to the male characters, but I had no idea they would actually use that term as an origin story for their #1 female character.

"Wonder Woman is the child of a God"

A god who has done absolutely nothing but have sex with most of the female characters in this story. That's not epic. That's Seth Rogen's next comedy. Now we have a Diana who was born probably by accident because her mother just can't resist godly co** instead of being created out of pure, longing love that stemmed from her previous life when she was murdered while pregnant.

I also don't like how Wonder Woman handles issues with violence, especially towards her fellow Amazons. This Wonder Woman has almost no compassion, no sense on sincerity and no lust for life. All I see is a person who wants to be angry and wants to hurt people.

Not really. Rule 63 Hercules would be awesome.

Birds of Prey? Batwoman? Wonder Woman? Every female character in Demon Knights?

Honestly, I think the DCnU has several strong female characters. Besides the exception of Starfire and mayyybe Harley, I can't even think of another character I would describe the way you have. Definitely not even Selina.

Well besides Diana's costume, I think these three issues have been fantastic. Some of my favorites, actually. Still sort of wish she looked more like Exoristos, but I get the need for iconic costumes...
