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...

That's Dick Exposition there, who directs the Wonder Sisters to give Batman, of all people, a call. Thank goodness you were there Dick, or they'd have been completely clueless.

Batman isn't there, but they get Tim instead, who reads over Batman's notes.

Wonder Woman calls out Clayface. Superman arrives. Except it's not Superman. It's Clayface, and after a very short fight he eats Wonder Woman to get all the sacred clay that he can.

Except it's not Wonder Woman. It's Donna Troy, and Clayface clay-vomits her back up. This is the distraction that Diana needs to freeze Clayface.

Donna flies off for Plan B and Diana flies away with the freeze gun, with Clayface in hot and sticky pursuit. She darts into the subway

Of course, it works.

This story does get a bit silly :) Still fun, though!

I would say that being composed of clay is not, canonically, how Diana works absent mystical transformation weirdness.

But it's a fun story for a two-issue fill-in.
