"I love both horror and science fiction, and Warren [Ellis] has managed to combine both of them into something that is both disturbing and rewarding in a far-ranging way. My goal is to present the images he calls for, while at the same time finding visual themes and stylistic flourishes that can underpin and echo the story's intent. As for what it's about, I've been telling people it has the flavor of The Prisoner, but with much heavier horror elements. Maybe Jacob's Ladder by way of Solaris?" -- Phil Hester

He did what he did in each case for the good of humanity.

The last issue of the first series put him at the beginning of new life.

It flailed aborning, conscious of and confused by its existence.

It comprehended what it was, not why. )

Gold Key: Alliance #3 showed this in the part focusing on its Magnus, Robot Fighter.

Not with him directly- he was already a straightforward translation to the present day- but with one he saw.

That one came to him in the midst of a fight.

It came to him in a punch. )

It's been telling their stories in the proceeding of, without any preceding preface to justify them.

The first issue began with the one relatively least remembered, the post-apocalyptic strongman.

Like the rest of them, he was in the present day- his characteristic setting was in his head.

The first page deftly established that. )

I thought I would post a few pages from NIGHTWING #115, where Nightwing (in his guise of Renegade) tried to teach Rose Wilson that, surprise surprise, Superman is a good guy.

Saving people? )

I cannot wait for more of this book. It's simply delightful. Four pages that have nothing to do with the plot behind the cut. (:

How's my brave little superhero? )

[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.

And that's where we piick things up here )

"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

And following up on q99 's link to Wonder Woman #611, we have the last pages of this.... divergent existence... for Diana.

And we find out why it was so vital that Clotho hid a secondary-thread of Diana's life and fate within the main tapestry of Diana of Themyscira's life.

(with nods to Bluefall, too)

Let us see if the weapon we have tempered is stronger than the last. )

The latest storyline in Wonder Woman is all about how the Morrigan, War Goddesses once three in number but now two, are trying to reshape Diana to replace their third.

In Wonder Woman #611, we get a vision of what Diana will be like if they succeed.
