    Prior to Flashpoint, I felt Cale was a far more interesting character. Her targeting Diana didn't have anything to do with family trauma, it was all about how she had to work her way up the ladder in a male dominated world and her feeling that Wonder Woman being given on a silver platter [from Cale's view] all the things Veronica had to fight for made Diana a fraud.

    That seems to have been lost in the new version, who is basically just lashing out because of suffering from unbalanced mother syndrome. She doesn't have a plan beyond making Diana's life miserable. As a motivation it seems pretty 2 dimensional.

    And I still can't get over how Nemesis is drawn here. I know I said Fourth World, but now I am thinking it's more like what a fourteen year old would come up with for a Superhero role playing game.

    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Nemesis looks like a Star Wars alien.

    Book is on a roll IMO. Enjoying all of the artists. Wilson is using ideas from previous runs; that ought to be a given, but for this title it's a godsend. Tone of the past few issues has been appropriately whimsical/fantastic, a good fit for the character.
