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...

*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"

I checked and it's been five years since I posted this, so I'm giving it a bit of a revival.

I've also discovered there was an old series of posts about Diana called "World of Wondy", so I'll probably merge them with the current theme, for ease of access.

The new movie will hove to the New52 reveal that Diana is the actually the daughter of Zeus, a story idea so at odds with the concept of Wonder Woman it boggles the mind. I believe that Rebirth might have done away with that (though I'm not sure), but the movie was already underway so it played the cards it was dealt



Trigger warning for misogyny, violence against women and rape (though that latter is not seen, it's so heavily implied as to be worth mentioning)

Perez art under the cut (What? You need more of a reason?) )

After reading Wonder Woman #4/5 I'm a little confused about where this origin story is going.

Because some of you expressed mild curiosity... Diana Prince The All New Wonder Woman in her final adventure as a "super spy," before once again becoming the star spangled messenger of the gods...

"Maybe, Cathy. But W.W. could mean a lot of things! Maybe they were trying to bring back a Windshield Wiper!"

--Diana Prince... not so wise as Athena.
