Four pages from the latest issue of Generation Lost.



So it's pretty clear that Max is not behind Wonder Woman's current circumstances.


They start talking about how it was the death of Wonder Woman at Max's hands that brought about the horrible future and discover that no one knows who she is, except for Booster, Captain Atom, Bea, and Tora.


Bea is probably going to be fine, but it is a nice dramatic moment.

Flipped through this at the store. Still pissed about Ice's 'reaction' to her family back ground.

Fuck you, DC and Judd, seriously.

Why don't all superheroes invest in Kevlar? I mean, seriously . . .

In real life, that'd be really quite fatal, especially if there's a gut shot there. In comics, not so much.

I personally had assumed that current costume of hers was kevlar before now...

Could be AP rounds?

If Bea DOES bite the dust, I am going to have some very Not-Kind words with DC. Possibly with bullets.

If those were fatal shots she would have died on that page.

I see a shattered pelvis and perforated abdomen. If Ice can put her into cryogenic storage or something and they get her to surgery, she's got a pretty good shot. Even the hit to her midsection's not going to be immediately fatal, but what I'd be worried about more than anything is the pelvis and thigh hits.

She doesn't seem to have a bunch of really messy, probably instantly-fatal exit wounds, so I'd imagine her uniform saved her life for the next couple of minutes.

I love how Fire, reconned daughter of a major criminal, was so luke warm about Ice overcoming her poor family upbringing, despite, ya know, Ice's entire career up until now.

So Bea's basically the only JLI person who hasn't died yet, right? The whole series was an excuse to take her out!

(Kidding. Mostly.)

Oh noes. References to alterWonder are occurring. Here I thought it honestly wouldn't be brought up until it was shown in Wonderwoman's title directly since it's a headache inducer to the wider DCU.

I honestly would love if Max just gave up on this idea and moved on solely because he can't find her. That and that alone could, by itself, just about make me tolerate that alterWonder ever happened.

Funny. And I find it completely in keeping with DC that Wonder Woman's "much needed" and widely touted (and now FUCKED UP) reboot would end up being a plot point in a Winick book.

The crap Tora said in this issue has seriously just...I'm done with Winick. And she was one of my favourites, too.

Here's to hoping someone fixes her along the way, after this guy's no longer writing her. I feel dumb for getting so offended but fuck it, this stupid "CULTURE OF STEALING AND THIEVING, IT'S NOT HEROIC" etc GODDDD go lick some white dog crap

I'm not concerned about Bea because no matter how annoyed I am with Winick right now I have faith he's not stupid enough to kill off that wonderful woman *_*

Also, I love how they haven't even shown Donna's or Cassie's reaction to Wonder Woman apparently missing or not existing anymore. Donna and cassie should both be having a dumb existential crisis right now.

I don't think you need to feel dumb for getting offended by those lines. I couldn't believe they did it. I sat there reading it open-mouthed. "Heroes come from better stock"? What the fuck?

I thought I would pick up anything between two covers so long as Booster and/or (any) Beetle were in it, but after this issue I am done with this.

We're Good Guys.

Love that little speech by Booster Gold. Love it. Don't know if I totally agree with it, but still, love it.

Hahahahh I thought Bea would protest from the "Heroes come from better stock" thing a biiiit more, maybe to give a more even narrative and explain Tora's dumb self loathing as internalized racism or something but nope.


She's seriously not recognizable anymore.

I just note no heart, no head, no spine. In comic-medicine, that means they're all just fleshwounds ^^

Unlike in RL, where that pelvis shot is going to be nasty.

Max is making so many faces perfect for being taken out of context in those two pages alone.

from " DIEEEEEE YOU! " to " Man, I just don't care anymore " to " Look at my Galen Tyrol impersonation, guys! ", it's all good

Well, this isn't *quite* as good as what I was expecting: that somehow Bruce Wayne would be the only one to remember Max Lord *and* Wonder Woman.

And no "Who is Donna Troy?" questions so far.

That's the part I can't get over. Like, the racism is appalling as all getout, obviously, but it's not surprising, once the initial shock wore off. This is Big Two comics, we'd be foolish to expect better.

But, like, we haven't just met her family, they were the crux of a major story arc! One of them was a supervillian! It's like writing a Batman story where he angsts about the puppy that his parents couldn't afford to buy him on that poverty-stricken seventh Christmas of his life. How the hell does Winick expect to sell us on this?

I admit, I literally LOL'd at Max's epic freak-out at knowing about the existence of someone that nobody knows, complete with him acknowledging the appropriateness of it. It was the only time so far that I've not completely disliked the Wonder-reboot. HOW DOES IT FEEL, MAXIE?

Other than that, though, I'm feeling kind of glad that I held off on buying this title.
