    In the story Hippolyta went to Paradise Island to take the Lasso that she kept in her bedroom, so it makes sense...

    Hippolyta's characterization is lousy; as if she were a brute cave woman.
    She is always ready to fight or break a head because that suits her.
    In today's issue she looked for the lasso that she had stored in Themyscira. It is not clear to me that the lasso works outside of Diana's hands, but well...
    And this is why.

    I don't think that skull belongs to a dead horse, I mean as far as I know horses haven't got fangs...

    The spread of her running is probably my favorite in the whole issue.

    Valid point. It's a fantasy world and I guess it's probably some magical horse hybrid.

    What's the most notable thing Hippolyta's done on the League so far?

    She had a conversation with Naomi, letting her know how awesome she is. Does that count as notable?

    IBH, I don't like Hippolyta in JL as much as I liked her in Justice Society. I know some fans did not like her traveling into the past and joining the JSA but, I personally liked her inclusion on the team. Is Hippolyta's tenure in the JSA even canon anymore?

    With the "it all happened" trying to decide what fits in as canon becomes endlessly confusing.
    We are at the point where we sit around debating each other's head canon.
    If you liked Hippolyta in the JSA, then she served in that organization.
    If you didn't, well then you can just put it down to an elsewhere and move on.

    I preferred it too, but only because she felt more impactful there whereas she just feels like a placeholder on the Bendis League.

    I won't lie that I didn't enjoy her and Ted Grant to some degree.

    I never understood how "Daddy Zeus" added anything to Wonder Woman's mythos. I disagree with the argument that it makes her more "relatable" to have a father. Plus, that means Hippolyta betrayed one of her patron goddesses, Hera, by sleeping with her husband either knowingly or unknowingly. Either way that would have gained Hera's wrath in Greek mythology and would have made Diana an enemy of Hera's. Prefer the depiction of Hippolyta as respecting her patron goddesses, especially Hera. Diana's catch phrase alone, Great Hera, is a sign of respect and reverence. I wholeheartedly agree: Daddy Zeus can kick rocks.
