"I don't think you can write comics without trying to reflect what's going on in the real world. I mean, that's kind of our job. I believe we have two jobs we have to do simultaneously: We have to reflect what's going on in the real world and we have to entertain you.

So I wouldn't say it was, like, wanting to go after that. It was more like, we can't write without doing that.

And we wanted to show that this movement, this thing, this idea that Lee Bermejo had, which was brilliant, of all these people being inspired by these Robins, is kind of a double-edged sword. It's inspiring and wonderful, but it's also a bunch of kids on the street trying to do jobs they might not be prepared for. And we wanted to examine whether that was a good thing or bad thing. Not come down on one side of the other. It stays a little bit gray.

Light warning for violence.


Now here was a mini-event I was looking forward to. Tom King's first crossover event? That sounds like fun, especially with the previews and small brief bits of info I heard about.

perletwo: odyssey wondy (amazon noir)
[personal profile] perletwo
[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
