    Default Wonder Woman: The first superhero of DC's Heroic Age

    According to the new DC timeline, Diana was the first hero of the first generation of DC's heroic age.
    Superman is the first hero of the second generation.

    This kind of lines up with the DCEU and even Young Justice.

    So does this mean the Rebirth origin isn't canon anymore?

    Leaving me to wonder if DC is going to use the movie (First World War), De Liz's The Legend of Wonder Woman, or Marston (!) as the template of the new Wonder Woman canon.

    Somehow, I think they will set it to some new writer. Though having one "present" and one "past" Wonder Woman writer strikes me as a good thing, and a much better idea than the current bi-weekly schedule.

    And her current origin is only a few years old. It's Birthright all over again .

    Maybe Diana is drawn into WWII by Ares and retreats to Themyscira with the war's end and Ares's defeat. Then, decades later, Steve Trevor crashes on Themyscira, drawing her out again.

    I agree. I guess now we know what the heck that reference to half a century meant? I can't read the images on linked page - too small for me. But it looks like something about Steve Trevor listed in first column of red "G1 V1"?)

    Anyway, half a century ago is 1969. But the JSA are back on the list, and she's before them, and I can't see them not being a WWII team, so there's that. Maybe the half a century still isn't explained.

    (Although, if they can work the clay origin back into canon, all is forgiven. Heh)
    I kinda wondered if they already had, when Empress Hippolyta's clay child was mentioned.

    For the record, I prefer Superman the first superhero - it works for me in a meta fashion, and as the only golden age characters I've read are the ones that continued (or, in Canary's case, were brought back later), I'm okay with relegating them to a separate earth.

    Yeah this is the part that annoys me. Plus this is going to break everything for Diana AGAIN. Watch them make Steve her WWI sweetheart and Etta her WWI friend again just like Post Crisis. So soon she’s not going to have any supporting cast.

    Unless of course that WW mentioned is Hippolyta which would be fine.
