    "Nubia was introduced in a 1973 story from Wonder Woman #204, where she was revealed to be Diana’s long-lost twin. She’s depicted here as Hippolyta’s bodyguard, lover, second-in-command, and the power behind the throne (a role taken by the later character Phillipus – but I prefer Nubia)."

    Suxh a weird choice

    Nubia - she stays in Queen/diplomat full time
    Artemis - jobless though....she likely just cashes in on priceless artifacts/gold
    Diana usually does have a job as an ambassador even when her identity is public.

    I could see Artemis or Yara running an antique shop.

    Sounds like they basically treated two different black characters as interchangeable because they preferred one over the other.

    I decided the Amazons still harboured a subconscious fear and horror of men and what they’re capable of, and a kind of disdain for the women of Man’s World who have allowed themselves to be subjugated. Diana is the first to overcome this fear and scorn and by doing so she ends the stasis and changes the world.
    Calling it a "subconscious fear" is rather questionable given the first pages of volume one show - in exploitative detail - what the Amazons endured at the hands of men but Morrison shows no real interest in unpacking that.

    I’ll admit I’ve always struggled with the idea that Diana began life as a clay statue of a child given life. It made her feel like a golem, a Pinocchio, rather than a living character. I overlooked the ‘given life’ bit to focus on the pottery aspect.

    My first impulse, then, was to ditch the clay origin. Here, recalling this story’s origins in a film pitch, I wanted Hollywood style inner conflict where it’s revealed that Diana is in some sense the daughter of the hated Hercules…
    Remember, Gail Simone parodied this mindset in her Wonder Woman run years before DC decided to make Diana having a father canon.

    Somewhere in the middle of writing Volume 1, I realised I preferred the feminist myth of parthenogenetic female reproduction where Hippolyta models an ideal daughter in clay, which is then animated by the gods. It’s feminist Adam and Eve! Wonder Woman should be no man’s daughter!

    I had to reconcile these impulses in this new iteration. The truth is revealed that Hippolyta combined her eggs with the seed of Hercules in her genetic weaving laboratory, sculpting Diana into life on a science fiction ‘potter’s wheel’.
    And you couldn't just use the original clay version because...?

    If this book had been written in the 1990s by Rob Liefeld or Brian Pulido, I suspect it would have far less defenders. As it stands, it's an embarrassment on the Wonder Woman ip and quite inferior to Historia in every way.

    Thanks for sharing this! I just watched that video a few weeks ago and thought "hmm...I wonder if anyone with clout saw this and got her a crock pot?" Happy to see that was the case. Coco is fun.


    Where exactly did they screw up Nubia's origin and conflate it with Phillipus' story? Is that really from an official guide? Say it ain't so...

    I'm sure Cassie must have had a job at some point. She's a teen, right? Did they really never give her a job of any kind?

    Reminds me of how young adult characters on TV shows are written once they're in college. The stories always focus on them falling in love and crashing cars, forgetting that they have to study and work for cash to pay for their lifestyles. Cassie can't just go and do Wonder Girl stuff or be Connor's girlfriend 24/7.

    Max Lord gets cast

    A big red flag if you ask me. Let's hope he has nothing to do with WW

    Considering the other characters already casted, we got Hawkgirl, Guy Gardner Green Lantern, Metamorpho, Mister Terrific, that may be indicating they are the Justice League International.

    So we may be getting JLI Lord who is a distinct character from Post-Infinite Crisis Lord.

    Plus Janes Gunn generally casts his brother Sean in fairly minor roles, so Lord may not have that big a presence in whatever he appears in.

    Wait. This whole sequence is from the CWesque League from post Flashturd and New Poopy-2. So if the whole point of INFINITE CRISIS was Batman being less of a paranoid derpadoo, why are we back here yet again and so very soon?

    Based off the descriptions online I'm not sure either of them contain the annual.

    Acording to people on the yara flor forum, Ive been told there's at least one edition that includes it, which makes sense given that the regular series and the Infinite Frontier stuff doesnt reach the 272 pages of the descriptions.
