Also, the series has been apparently been upgraded from mini-series to ongoing status. Huh.

Aww. This looks like fun but my LCS hasn't been ordering it. Sigh.

...really? I remember some of the other stories from the last post on the first issue. The only characters I found sympathetic or even a little likable were the dude who married not!Wonder Woman and his son. (And sorta the daughter.) All of the other characters just sorta ran the spectrum from bland to dickish. (Not!Batman is having gay sex with his sidekick? That's a new one. Nooobody has ever covered that ground before, nosiree bob.)

I mean, good for the creators, I guess. I may have found it a little boring and derivative, but apparently there's an audience for it out there. (Though I might buy the book if it were just about not!Wonder Woman's family. They've got an interesting dynamic going on.)

In the second issue its also strongly implied that the son is inheriting his mother's powers. Also, a tell-all author has maybe deduced that Sovereign is married to his former arch-nemesis.
Also, the cosmically-aware guy's wife? She's an ex crimefighter waiting for her kids to be old enough so she can go back to doing it.
Not to mention the wife of the elder hero, the one that's retired, is using her shape-shifting powers to trick him out of retirement at a tremendous risk to his own health for some reason.
Its got a lot more going on than I thought it would and I'll definitely keep reading.

As much as the old, cliche and irritating the "joke" about Batman and Robin analogues being gay is, the concept of a misandrist Wonder Woman is also something that appeared before and is also something that comes across as being kind of lazy.

Frank Miller on autopilot lazy.

I suppose that it's justified in this case due to the story that they're trying to tell, but it still comes off as annoying to me. As if the only way that they can show that a woman is strong and independant is to have her actively hate or be dismissive of the opposite sex, or in the case of her son, seemingly be openly emotionally abusive.

Calling it now: Not! Wonder Woman's son has been or will be turned by mom's arch enemy.

Agent Twilight's plus-fours are quite something, and it's a little weird that the lighter material in Night Fox's costume is a match to his skin tone so it looks like he's wearing a VERY scanty, flesh exposing outfit.

I can't help but question Paul/Night Fox's commitment to Gio/Agent Twilight, for all Gio's declarations that they're in love. Admittedly, all I know about this book is what's been posted here on S_D, but it's pretty clear that Paul had no intentions of leaving Alexis any time soon -- if at all -- and the guy's already trying to win her back.

This does not speak to me of a man in love with anyone. This speaks to me of a man who likes having his nice life with a piece of ass on the side.

Oh look, more unsympathetic superheros.

*sigh* I'm sure this is a very interesting book, I just feel over-inundated with gloom and super-dickery.

I like that Not Wonderwoman is riding a dragon, very colorful asian feel. We need moar of that in comics.

I can't help but wonder if the reason Not!Wonder Woman's daughter doesn't have powers is because she doesn't want them. She pretty clearly doesn't want to be part of the whole "superhero" thing. She also doesn't have any interest in her mother's old lifestyle -- she quite understandably would rather buy bacon at the local Safeway than catch and butcher a live pig.

Meanwhile, Not!Wonder Woman's son is starved for his mother's attention and tries so hard to be like her. That's why he has manifested her abilities.

Or if Not!Wonder Woman's powers are also divine in origin, maybe whatever deities empower her did this as a sick joke.

So, are any of the characters likable, other than the kids and Not!WW's husband?

Also, any sympathy I might have had for the wife disappeared the minute she tasered the sidekick out of pettiness.
