    I wonder if it's a callback to a different multiverse-crossing WW issue -- issue #100, from 1958, featuring the Wonder Woman of Dimension X.

    More or less. Byrne created the mirror twin idea. Heinberg's restatement of it in the "Who is Wonder Woman?" arc suggested a simplification. (It was basically condensed into a sentence which could be...

    My favorite is the un-fleshed-out Heinberg version: she was the mirror twin who grew up on Paradise Island as WW's sister, but whose life was interrupted by Dark Angel. It's cleaner and simpler in...

    All I know is that the cover is AWFUL. Slapped together so quickly that the artist apparently never even bothered to review the collected material to get Di's depiction right, beyond the jumpsuit.

    Rescue her from the current Titans creative team, which is turning her into an alcoholic.

    Erm, he's usually got the goods. And he publishes follow-ups when the stories change or his sources change their tune.

    This is the primary reason --



    Another reason, I think, is that Perez and everyone after him (except for a brief period following Infinite Crisis) jettisoned the Diana Prince identity. Diana...

    Maybe her mother was the sassy sort and celebrated the Banas' rejection of the Greek pantheon by using a god's name for a regular mortal.

    I wonder if Geoff Johns's transitions at DC will give Wilson any liberty to depart from Dark Gods and (please oh please oh please) the dumbass Jason business.
