Let's see if I can get this new origin straight...

In the fourth digital issue of Bombshells United, Marcelo DiChiara takes over art duty, which prompts me to ask:
Does this look like an adult Wonder Woman to you?

About a year ago I posted some examples of Batman's troubled relationship with the Justice League. With "Tower of Babel" getting posted, here's a page from Brad Meltzer's JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #0.

Once upon a time, DC comics understood that comics don't have to be always serious grimdark heavy drama involving lots of gratuitous violence and rape. That was a good thing, but the less serious comics that DC put out weren't always worthwhile. Today it seemed appropriate to post 8/23 pages from issue 117 of the mercifully forgotten "The Adventures of Jerry Lewis" comic, an issue worthy of note today only because it guest starred Wonder Woman in her "mod" phase.

gratuitous sexism and unfunny jokes ahoy )

The past was a different country, one in which it was possible for there to be over 100 issues of a Jerry Lewis comic.

ETA: the last page includes a statement of management and circulation. in 1970, "The Adventures of Jerry Lewis" was selling 175,000 copies every month. Do you think maybe, just maybe, going after ever more grimdark crossover events might have been a mistake on DC's part?

Giving this the crack tag, I guess? And the misogyny tag, because Jerry Lewis.

Following on from Wonder Woman v.2 #160 comes Wonder Woman v.2 #161. And then, after a fashion, comes Wonder Woman '77 #14, where Manhunter writer Marc Andreyko did a Clayface story set on Paradise Island.

When we left the scans in the previous post, Clayface had announced that he was going to take Diana's Clay and get Wonder Woman powers, in a fit of logic only matched by Absorbing Man trying to break into a museum to steal some moon rock. It worked, thanks to Comic Book Logic, and Clayface became super strong and could fly, but Diana wasn't destroyed, only left weaker and younger.

She retreated to nearby Titans Tower where she ran into Donna Troy, now her doppelganger. And so we continue...

Continuing this post series on how Wonder Woman: Rebirth is the perfect source material for Wonder Womans 2 and 3!

Here's a chapter from the Godwatch arc, about two more possible members of Diana's modern-day ka-tet. Plus, some Real Talk about zoo safety regulations. Check it!

So, in unlikely case there is somebody who doesn't know about Artemis of Bana-Mighdall, she is something like Wonder Woman's Azrael, although I prefer to think of her as her Vegeta. An Amazon from a lost tribe of eeeeevil Amazons who took over Wonder Woman's mantle during the nineties and while she was basically there to be the EXTREEEEEME WW to contrast with all-loving Diana, she nevertheless was embraced by many fans, enough to remain a consistent part of the franchise, despite so many characters who got ditched and forgotten, even starring in the recent Red Hood and the Outlaws book.

*In 2017, that would be a relatively big deal. But in 2000, when Wonder Woman Vol.2 #160 was released, it was just a two part story in among a series of short one and two part stories by artists and writers whose name I don't really recognise, though art in this story is handled by Scott Kolins.
This two parter is collected in the Batman: False Faces trade that has BKV's early work at DC writing Batman, Batvillains, and Wonder Woman. It's nothing amazing, but it does give a nice Wonder Woman story with an angle that seems obvious in hindsight.

I haven't read a lot of Wonder Woman, apart from some stuff around Infinite Crisis (over a decade ago. Gosh.), the Power Girl guest appearance, and bits of Sensation Comics until I ended up behind.

The story starts with Cheetah holding a car above her head and threatening that "If Wonder Woman doesn't show up in the next five minutes...I will kill every last one of you".
Two cops are watching and ready to run out from behind cover to engage Cheetah when Wonder Woman descends from the sky and says "I was hoping I could end this peacefully"

Well, this is shaping up to be an absolutely delightful summer. Why, just last night, one of my oldest and dearest e-friends spotted me the cash for that movie no-one can shut up about these days!

Just kidding, just kidding...

As of this writing, I've got experience with a fairly wide swath of Wonder Woman stories - read the first Golden Age omnibus cover to cover, read the post-Crisis relaunch all the way up to #150 (for those playing at home, that's all of Perez, Loebs, and Byrne, plus most of Luke), saw just about all her DCAU appearances and the DTV movie at least once, and her Brave and the Bold mini-sode a lot more than just once...

But we mustn't forget that these are nothing but trivia questions for geeks and other niche-feeders, far as the general public's concerned. To them, there was but a single "classic" Wonder Woman, now passing Gadot the torch: the ineffable, inestimable Lynda Carter.

For the "World of Wonder" theme, here is LEGENDS OF THE DC UNIVERSE #5, the conclusion of "Moments" by William Messner-Loebs and Mike Deodato. It takes place early in Diana's post-Crisis career as an ambassador, and involves her losing some illusions about the outside world.
