Yeah, the Zeus thing turned out to be an utter letdown. Here I was expecting something epic and interesting (which with this creative team isn't an unrealistic expectation) and instead just got "yeah, I fucked this dude and lied about it, sorry". No deeper meaning, just complete abandonment of her old origin.

Hopefully something interesting will come from the fallout, but at the moment I am disappoint.

I can see them calling her that now, given there's an undercurrent of "you betrayed us by going to man's world". But calling her that as a child makes no sense.

And of course she was the only Amazon child, wasn't she? So it would have been a bunch of adults insulting a kid in that case, which doesn't sound right.

"As a child she knew the love of 100 mothers."

I'm sticking with Perez.

Certainly a lot more poetic, and sticking with Perez is always a good idea anyhow.

I can even handle the idea of discontent/jealousy in some quarters, like in Gail Simone's run. It's natural enough, but everyone's got enough sense not to blame Diana for something she can't help (with the exception of an even smaller minority). But to call her Clay to her face? (hehe, Clayface) That seems beyond the pale.

Really? I have been referring to her as a golem on forums for years. I figured that referencing the fact that she isn't(wasn't) a real person would have been the go to put down line of choice.

I don't think that is the case. Remember in #2, when Hermes was telling Zola the clay origin, he said that she was viewed as the perfect Amazon, because no man was involved in conceiving her. It was a nickname of affection. When Diana is sad and mentioning she hasn't been called that since a little girl, I'm thinking that either Diana never felt comfortable with that nickname, or she's sad that they're now using it with disdain. Eris also pretty much speaks in wordplay and puns, so her "children can be so cruel" is probably her saying that these silly little Amazons who are WAY below her were unwittingly being lied to without ever knowing it.

You know if Wonder Woman has built a huge part of her identity and her beliefs on the fact that she is perfect because she has never been "mared" by the mark of a man, then I could see the reveal that she has a father being truly earth shattering. That really would make her whole life a lie.
