    Marcio Takara will be the new artist, I do not know if I am familiar with his art, which he has been drawing lately?

    Yeah! Michael said it hasn't been used in 50 years, so it's very likely.

    Her lasso is literally an extension of herself and moves according to her will because it is literally a part of her body like a snakes tail
    And theeeeere in a nutshell is why Peng Deilan isn't more popular. That's a lot to swallow.

    He'll be doing art on one of the WW 80th Anniversary stories.

    But then again, Wonder Woman has rarely been simple herself.

    I'd just like to know when it became a different purple lasso. What issue, did that happen?

    Anybody remember?

    What do you mean? Peng lended her that lasso in that issue and then she used it a bit vs Cheetah, but then I think it disappeared in the middle of the fight and I don't think it appeared again. I haven't read the "New Super-Man" series but maybe Peng Deilan can just summon it whenever she wants since it's an extension of her body?

    I need help wrapping my head around that, right now.

    I understand the cosmic and transcendental aspects of Peng Deilan*. What I don't understand is why her lasso is the same color, as the Purple Lasso, from the Fates. As I recall, Diana recovered her Golden Perfect, on a big splash page, in the issue, I mentioned. I can assume that she returned Deilan's lasso and other armaments, after she used them.

    I really want to see Deilan and Diana in a story, together, and Deilan welcomed into the sisterhood of Amazons, as Fury, a Greek superheroine, eventually was. That is another matter, of course.

    Anyway...looks like I've got to back track my Cloonrad issues and find out when Diana picked up a second [?] Purple Lasso, the one associated with the Greek Fates...who are also the Norns, it seems? This is new, because the Norse, Roman and Greek pantheons used to be separate.

    Same here, Konja...

    And I didn't mean my reply - just reread it - to sound so testy to your comment. My ire wasn't directed, at you; my problem is with the editorial reality of this comic.

    I love that Siggy (Siegfried) has his own iconic look, firmly established, millennia-old backstory, ..is NOT from Greek myth, has a well-established sexual orientation, his own powers/weapons AND costume. This way writers can't mess with him, too much, ultimately screwing up his role in the comic. Mischievous, overtly sexy and he's basically Serena to Col. Steve's Samantha Stevens, ..IF the eds keep him around, long enough, to be a comedic rival for Steve.

    He could be like the Wonderverse's answer to Superman's pal, Guardian ..or Steel.

    Wonder W./Diana, Etta Candy, Col. Steve, Hippolyta, Siegfried, Holliday College and ARGUS - and all based in a fictional, X-filesy city, somewhere in the scenic, American Southwest! What a GREAT start, if that could actually happen! Won't, of course...

    But, a Kangalier's gotta' dream - right? Heh.

    Maybe, maybe not. That's the variant cover, and there's usually a little more artistic license granted with those.

    But I hope it is.

    Dude I already told you, the Cloonrad purple lasso first appears in issue 773 when Diana visits the Valkyries. The Valkyries capture Diana with it and she then keeps it. In issue 779 we see that it can command others, even to the point of ressurection. We also meet the Norns, who are covered in strings of fate that look just like the purple lasso Diana got from the Valkyries. So what we deduce is that the purple passo itself is also a string of fate, and that's why it can command others to such a powerful degree.

    The Norns are like the Moriai/ Fates for the Norse Mythology. Our entire lives are embedded in strings of fate that they spin and determine.

    Both covers for issue 780 showed Diana with the Golden Lasso. I assume that it comes back in the issue.

    Shes not more popular simply because she hasn't gotten to appear in much. That sort of origin is actually fairly typical in asian folklores. Peng herself is supposed to be a character from 'the White Snake' a story so popular that they keep making movies about it

    Okie dokey but that's way more complicated than the made from clay origin and it was changed due to the misperceived perception that it's too complicated. Just saying.

    Possibly to add to the confusion, but Donna Troy also had a purple lasso of persuasion. In her New 52 origin she was empowered/entrusted by the Fates so an enterprising writer could tie the purple lasso mystery up neatly if they so desired. All that's needed are some time shenanigans (which may already exist because of the God Sphere) to make it so Diana, Donna and the Valkyries were all using the same purple thread from the Moirai.

    Has steve trevor showed up at all since DC changed Diana's age to be alive since the JSA was around? Because if that is steve trevor, shouldn't he be a old man at this point?
