    Default 5 "new twists" for a new Wonder Woman project

    Let's say there's a new Wonder Woman project on the horizon. Totally new, with no direct connection to any current or previous incarnation.

    Could be a new movie, new TV show, new cartoon, new video game, new AU comic book series, new Broadway play, whatever. It's new and completely focused on Wonder Woman.

    Those in charge don't just want a retread of old ideas. They want a twist or two that hasn't been done in any major way before with Wonder Woman.

    Could be her appearance, her origin/ backstory, her powers, her personality, her occupation, her methods, her supporting cast, her rogues gallery, her settings.

    They want a couple twists that will make this Wonderverse project stand out positively from what has come before.

    They want a list of 5 proposed new twists to the Wonderverse mythos, of which they'll incorporate at least 2 of them.

    What would be on your list of 5 new twists on the Wonder Woman of this new project (you can specify your preferred medium if you like)?

    Note: you can, and should, have some competing ideas/ twists. They're not looking for a cohesive series bible from you, just separate new ideas.

    Hepheastus or Dr. Midnite is her father (if she has to have one).

    Donna is a refugee from Bialya

    Diana's favorite goddess as a child was Athena.

    Siracca becomes the Wonder Girl counterpart to Jon/Damian.

    I find maybe what if the Amazons has stay in the outside world just pocket dimension. Hippolyta and the Amazons are still immortal.

    1st draft, regardless of medium ...


    1. Diana is, and always has been, a full-fledged goddess of the Greco-Roman pantheon.

    Not a demigod. Not clay blest by the gods. Not a bastard born of adultery. A full goddess, born of two pure gods for parents: her biological mother Athena and her biological father Hephaestus.


    2. Diana's ultimate enemy is the walking embodiment of patriarchy (and secretly, her own grandfather): Zeus.

    Zeus is the whole reason that Diana's origin was kept from her. Athena and Hephaestus are secretly married, but never told anyone of their relationship or their progeny. If Zeus found out that her parents had a pure blood child, he'd realize Diana is the one prophesied to eventually depose him and kill her (and her parents).


    3. Diana's bracelets conceal her godhood from Zeus and everyone except her parents (who assume human form to separately and discretely interact with her).

    She takes them off, she goes god mode, on par with Marvel's Thor with his hammer. With them on, she's far closer to the average Amazon (above Spider-man level).


    4. Queen Hippolyta is Athena in human guise.

    Athena is the sole public supporter of the Amazons. She created Paradise Island and led the first battered women she found across the world to there as a place of refuge. It is unclear if she was always Hippolyta or if she assumed Hippolyta's identity at some point. She splits time between Paradise Island and Olympus to allay Zeus' suspicions.


    5. Hephaestus assumes the form of a mortal man who alone is granted "permission" to live on Paradise Island.

    Unlike his wife (whom he quietly visits nightly), he has zero desire to rule anything or call attention to himself. He maintains the appearance of a simple lonesome blacksmith and shepherd named, um, "Jeebus" (I dunno, pick a more appropriate alias). He also splits time between Paradise Island and Olympus to allay Zeus' suspicions.

    1: When not superheroing, Diana spends most of her time on Transformation island trying to help the villains kept there. The idea being that she's taking a personal interest in their well being, and not just getting rid of them.

    2: Have WW and Black Canary do a joint training program for younger superheroines. This would include having characters like Supergirl, Batgirl and Artemis doing Amazon training on Themiscyra.

    3: Ares has no desire to seduce Hippolyta. Other Amazons maybe, but not the daughter who has brought him centuries of both annoyance and pride.
