    Ah, Bia!!! That little scene where she expressed how her soul had desired that moment for a long time made me cry. Literally. Yet another reminder of how much I wish Diana had a second book that explored untold/hidden/secret stories of her supporting cast and her multitude of peripheral characters (like Ferdinand, Atlantiades, Bia, Ed Indelicato, Trevor Barnes and Bobby Barnes, Mindy Mayer, Rama, Mayfly, and so many others, including so many obscure villains with so much potential)...

    I agree, the WW mythos has a large and diverse cast of characters to play with, but most writers don't do much with them. Which is understandable considering Diana has one book of 20 pages and those should mostly feature her. Ferdinand really should be used much more. He adds the fantastical to her cast and a touch of humor and levity that is needed, particularly when Etta isn't written very Etta. As much as Wilson's run was a disappointment, her introduction and use of Atlantiades was a high point and I'd like to see them involved in storylines every now and then. Siggy has been great, but who knows if he'll go the way of non-Steve male support characters...

    Bia is amazing and having a trans Amazon was so needed in the Amazon and WW mythos. Io finding a spot as Nubia's boo thang is also cool, but she had a cooler design back in the day. Reformed Medusa as an Amazon is pretty freaking cool, ngl, but I think she's off at Doom's Doorway now, or something? Idk but certainly an inspired choice considering her mythological maltreatment. I think post-Rebirth Barbara has a strong foundation to be a villainous lead a la Ms. Ivey, but who knows what DC wants to do with her.

    Not to mention all the Wonder girls, two of which are without a home at the moment. Yara is particularly disadvantaged because she's so new but so little has been firmly established, and by the time it does (if it does) it will have squandered much of the goodwill she had at the onset. She really needs her book back or an arc in the main book alongside Diana establishing everything besides the most rudimentary blocks we've been given. How we haven't thoroughly explored the Esquecida or the cool Brazilian mythology/folklore creatures, gods, and settings is such a travesty. Why introduce some thing so juicy and then leave it out to dry?

    And where the hell is Artemis? She killed Hippolyta at her request, got some magic or something, and now she's MIA. 20 pages is simply not enough for all these story threads. In my heart of hearts, I'd love a year long weekly Wonder Woman Eternal written by Rucka, DeConnick, Cloonrad, Simone, Jimenez, Scott, Orlando and Morrison. They're such a hodgepodge group of creators with their own styles and takes that it'd be fun to see what the synthesis of their ideas can create. Could suck, but it would at least be interesting.

    I love that they included Bia. I wonder if Blue Snowman is in it since they're one of the few gender fluid characters at DC?
