Well that an odd thing to be calling for as you get torn apart. Superman must really love his camera.

I think he's really calling for a better* artist.

*"Better" being a subjective word in this instance.

Clark had been agonizing over the question for days, but by the time he remembered the name of Sonic's home planet, it was too late.

Just for the record, Mobius is the name of the Anti-Monitor

JL 40 revealed that he was the previous owner of Metron's Mobius Chair and his predecessor as the witness of the universe.

Myrina/Evil Amazon lady sure is up and kicking people off of cliffs quick for a women who literally just gave birth.

As I said before, between this Darkseid thing and Wonder Woman's new origin, it seems like the Amazonians are being framed primarily as the mother's of powerful men's children, and I'm not a fan of that.

sssh. stop reminding people of better comics.
but, if i wanted to give this story the benefit of the doubt (which i don't. but i'll try to). then, maybe she means "willingly?" as in, not forcefully taken out? also, are the amazons immortal now? i tought they just raped men to reproduce and keep the numbers as they died off(nu52 amazons, anyway...).

Amazons are immortal, not invulnerable. They can live forever, but are still susceptible to grave injuries. Paradise Island is home to many dangers (such as harpies), so they'd probably rape men to prevent their population dwindling.

Also, what exactly prevents Hessia (from Superman/Wonder Woman) from leaving the Island AFTER Diana helps Steve Trevor?

1) so brian azzarello's amazons WERE immortal?
2) I have absolutely no idea. Best i can't think off, they think they are being dramatic with that choice of words.

" so they'd probably rape men to prevent their population dwindling."

Or they could just ask. Why do things the hard way?

From: [personal profile] deh_tommy
I'm not sure. Perhaps due to a distaste towards men from past experiences? I think Brian Azzarello wanted to make the Amazons mire accurate to their real life counterparts. I'm not fond of the change, mind you, but still.

but that's when the entire thing falls apart. because if we take that this is supposed to be closer to the myths, then it begs the question, why did he decided to us eth eversion that doesn't have the gargareans? whom with the amazons had an understanding to have their childrens and then gave the gargareans the boys?

Well, would this be a case of "Story over Continuity", or am I just trying to utilise a deniable way of saying "don't think about the issue"?

Perhaps Diana simply didn't know better. When did Hercules turn evil again, may I ask? And when did Wonder Woman show sympathy for him?

Well considering Hippolyta is one of the OG Amazons, and that Ex hadn't aged in the... forty or so years in between the Avalon and Vampire arcs, I think that she might have a touch of the immortal about her too. If not she's really long lived. :)

Though there is a difference between then being immortal and undying though, obviously. Ystin appears to be undying as it's shown to be REALLY hard to kill him, same with Ex. Although I figured that the original Amazons were immortal, but they either died through accident, warfare etc., hence why they needed to replenish their numbers occasionally. But the immortality thing got watered down over time, so they ended up having to regularly restock their numbers once the immortality/healing factor thingy was bred out of a portion of the Amazon population.

The reboot DCU had this with Amazons too, hence why Grace Choi would survive having her head partially incinerated by a Captain Marvel villain over in the Outsiders.

only because he stepped in AND because he offered them weapons in exchange. if not for him, then they would have been perfectly okay throwing babies off a cliff. in fact, it may had become the local sport. can you beat the record? :D

Agreed.

Also, y'know, them usually being *really evil* is something I'm no fan of.

Yeah, he got a minor costume overhaul courtesy of John Romita Jr. It eliminated the nehru collar as well as some of the superfluous lines and added some yellow back to the belt.

Genuine question, has she shown actually shown up much past her origin story? Because, not being someone who reads Justice League, I haven't even heard about the character since her debut, so her inclusion in the prophecy lineup is a little surprising.
