    Default Spoilers WW 758

    Wow! Did not see that coming!

    Diana, Orana and Nubia set up an Amazon Embassy in man's world. It's a monumental status quo change that's great for Mariko Tamaki.

    And that's not all...

    I liked how Hippolyta asked for the Chief Geologist, Master of Menageries and General Philippus to aid in the making of the embassy. They talked about defense and protecting the portal to Themyscira while simultaneously ending their isolation. How they're going to do that is a mystery but the Megalodons made the trip. Could other mythological beasts be close at hand? It's like a mash up of Rucka's embassy and the wonder dome but with more Amazons in America which hasn't been seen since way back when.

    Like it or not Orlando has really done a lot with his time on the book.

    New city, new enemies, old enemies, old friends, guest stars galore and a general overhaul of her mythos.

    Not sure how I missed this till now, but.....Orana is back?!? How, when, how? Does Orana have her classic look with long red hair?

    What does Nubia look like? Glad to hear Nubia is also back.

    Is this the first issue for both?

    Orlando brought Orana back in issue 750. She still has red hair but with darker skin. Nubia's been around since Willow Wilson's run.

    Iím not sure yet, seems kinda bland to me. I am really hoping that they keep the embassy as itís the perfect job for Diana. I would like to see better threats to her from mans world that donít always involve Cheetah and Ares. What Diana really needs are A List rouges who can really do some real damage to Diana and to the Justice League that even Batman canít win against. Steve Trevor for me is what Diana should keep. Maybe keep him in some part of the embassy where he can be more than just eye candy. Flesh his character out with giving him a history that makes him more interesting. As for the Amazons, I like where itís going so far. There has to be some better dialogue when they are presented. Add to that with giving them weapons which make them hard to beat. No more bow and arrows! Lastly, Olympus, show ALL the Gods when itís deemed necessary.

    Phantom Stranger felt rather Spectre-ish to me in this issue, which is interesting as Corrgian was on Themyscira recently in the JL book. Von Gunther's redemption and the new Amazon embassy had a bit of a "been there, done that" feel to them but it's at least new ground for this continuity and hopefully doesn't get ignored going forward.

    Good luck to Orlando to try and get me to care about Jason.

    Jason is back? No. He is one character who should be left gone

    Was that Nubia in a version of her classic costume during the reveal of the embassy?

    it looked like two Nubias the modern day and the classic there at the same time.

    Agreed. I feel like Orlando did more in his run than all of the writers who came after Rucka(2nd run) combined. I'm really bummed that he's leaving. Hopefully he's able to wrap up his plot points in the annual next month.

    I like the Amazon's new direction and I hope that Phantom Stranger is back to his more mellow self the next time he shows up.

    Not sure how to feel about Jason's return, but he can't be handled worse than the first time around.

    We need an explanation on what the Dark Fares agenda is.

    Ugh. Jason. My opinion of this run has lowered.

    I get where you're coming from for sure but perhaps Orlando will make Jason likable. He's done well with several other Wonder-characters.

    Yeah, reminds me a bit of the stuff Jiminez got done in his run even with only around 20 issues.

    It was like Orlando was confusing the Spectre with the Phantom Stranger. I really don't like this kind of take on the Stranger, either. I prefer him less of a Spectre/Dr. Fate/Zatanna type of mystical being.
