New previews from Wonder Woman: Rise of the Olympian - part 8

I will skip my usual complaints and just Wonder about this image.

From IGN.





I spent a summer in Acapulco when I was a kid. Playing in the sun from sunrise, swimming til sunset at the beach and at the hotel pool, and watching Godzilla and other monster movies til we passed out. Needless to say, I dreamt of huge monsters coming out of the shores and I could see them from my hotel room as they made landfall, huge monster armies deep into the dark night horizon.

This brought those fun summer memories all back.


*edit* sorry it took me so long to fix the LJ cut

I've been considering posting this timeline idea I had on No Scans, I may still do it.

Around 1944 there's an incident on Paradise Island where Doom's Doorway is almost opened. Diana Trevor ends up crashing on the island and stopping one of the first monsters out. She's wounded and delirious when attended. She looks at Hippoylta and says "Polly... tell Steve and Stevie I love them," jsut before dying.

Hippolyta looks at her belonging and sees baby pictures, which really stirs something she's been feeling for a couple of centuries. Within a year Diana is sculpted and brought to life.

About ten years later an infant washes ashore. Something that hasn't really happened for years. There's something with her that says her name is Donna Troy

Time passes. Diana and Donna become Wonder WOman and WOndergirl. Diana dies and Hippolyta takes her place

She eventually time travels back to the 1940's. She takes about five steps and Athena appears wondering what the hell is going on. After some talking Polly is allowed to stay in the past. But she can't mention Themiscrya or anything. Hitler's to into the supernatural, and Doom's DOorway is very active at that point. The Amazons and their island need to stay secret for now. In fact Athena has a way to insure that people's memories of Hippolyta will be replaced after she leaves.

She meets Steve Trevor Sr and Diana Trevor. In fact she sees Diana off on the plane ride that will lead to her death and passes the message onto Diana's husband and son.

About ten years later she sees something strange. A lightning bolt out of the clear blue sky sets a building on fire. She wonders what the hell Zeus could be doing and checks it out and finds a baby. SHe picks it up and Rhea appears, followed by the Amazons patrons. They argue. Hippolyta decides to let them, but she's getting the kid out of there. What she doesn't know is that that baby is not a baby. The Titans took orphaned children and raised them on New Cronus, then deaged them and returned them, because people appearing out of no where and rising to important positions. She realizes it's Donna and sends her to Themiscrya.

It'd end with a time travel to shift most of the JSA and family and many friens ahead afew decades just after HUAC. Hippolyta decides to head home with her connections in that time gone. When she comes back she finds out Steve and his new wife Diana Prince had a daughter they named Hippolyta. Of course she'd eventually end up taking the name Fury using the name of the fictional heroine who had replaced Hippolyta in everyone's memories.

Huh. Complicated, but internally consistent and appears to cover all the bases, and cleaves closer to appropriate characterization than what we've got now. Personally, I'd still rather just excise the whole concept, but there's a certain appeal in tying up the Fury and Donna knots that neatly.
