"As I have pointed out many, many times, none of the Amazons should look a day over 25." - John Byrne

Back on Earth (not New Genesis, despite the visual similarity of that floating tech-platform thingy):

I guess he just figures 25 to be someone's prime and immortals should be in the prime of life

Why exactly did he declare that "many, many times"? Did the question come up many, many times, or would Byrne just start talking about it without prompting?

Personally, I can absolutely imagine Byrne just randomly bringing that up in editorial meetings or including that in intern orientations.

I think the recent movie, and its demonstration of our childhood princesses growing up to be generals, demonstrates the flaw in that quote.

As for the story, it's interesting to see a time travel attack like this. We know how it ends, but seeing each 'previous' attack get larger and with more of a cost is still something to see.

Is Diana going to have to pull out a little washcloth to take care of that?
