    He swears to Wonder Woman and the Amazons that his strength will be theirs, whenever they call upon it, ..and Hercules keeps his oath, in WOGs.

    And before anyone goes there, the Amazons forgave and rehabbed a mass-murdering, human-experimenting Nazi, Paula Von Gunther...even made her their chief scientist. Refusal to accept Perez's rehabbed, heroic Hercules just reinforced negative steeped about women having no sense of accountability or self-governance.

    Anyway, I think that was Hercules in Nicola Scott's Wonder Family portrait, at the end of one of Greg Rucka's landmark stories. George Perez showed us a Hercules, who honored his bond and stood with the Amazons in WOGs. Being properly a Wonder, he belongs in the family snapshot, and the man-hating (misandry) that keeps him locked outta' the Invisible Treehouse ..is totally not okay.

    Paula's one of the things that's aged most poorly about Golden Age Wonder Woman in my opinion, so I'm fine with both neither really getting a redemption arc.

    Hey, Gaius--who is in the Wonder Family, presently, anyway? I'm counting Diana, the Queen, Etta, the Amazons, Donna, Nubia, Fury, Artemis, Cassie, Warmaster (Paula), Yara, Steve, Hermes, the Olympian (Achilles), I Ching and Ferdinand...who else?

    If the Golden Age Diana's grandson, the Dream King, was revealed to have travelled, backwards in time, becoming his grandmother's phantasmagorical playmate, Mister Genie, ..I think my heart would melt. Since he's Wonder Woman's most frequently forgotten blood relation, we know it will never happen, and we'll never see a connection made, between the meta-mythical Amazons and the Dream Realm, in any way that excites fans ..or matters.

    Also...what a segue for a Queen of Fables story arc!

    Ferdinand, Diana's Kithotaur chef.

    Rucka introduced him in his first run back in the 00s.

    No Artemis either. And she actually was Wonder Woman.

    Guess we forgot about Deilan, China Wonder...? Ms. Peng should be incorporated into the on-going Amazon scene, like...somehow; I think? https://www.cbr.com/dc-wonder-woman-of-china-trivia/

    That color scheme does her no favors, she doesn't look like a Wonder because of it, so it makes her easy to forget. The green would stick out in Wonder Family photos like a sore thumb. I want her included, just in a different costume.

    His cameo in Bloodlines was one of my favorite parts.

    I think they got rid of Cassie and Donna's lassos...

    So I guess Diana is still technically the only one with a lasso since what Yara has is a bolas.

    Edit: I forgot WW of China has one, but it's more or less a part of her. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    Donna had the Silver Lasso of Persuasion in Orlando's run.
