With Patty Jenkins on board for the WW sequel, there's the question of present-day Diana's supporting cast, now that Steve Trevor and Etta Candy have been canon-locked into World War One.

Luckily, WW: Rebirth provides an answer to that, in the form of (and starting with) Barbara Minerva. Check it!

*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"
Wonder Woman vs. Cheetah? )

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.

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...

Clay time is over )
