    Default Steve Orlando is back

    As Wonder Woman and her compatriots travel through the broken realm, Diana relates the story of the real first time she left Themyscira…and traveled with her mother to a bizarre alternate version of their home, where Empress Hippolyta reigned with an iron fist! But the Empress didn’t take too kindly to their territorial incursion…and so Diana was forced to watch as her mother battled for her life against the worst possible version of herself! What other secrets did Dimension Chi conceal? And have any of them followed Diana back to our universe? Find out in this tale by guest-writer Steve Orlando that delivers a crucial piece of G. Willow Wilson’s epic storyline!

    Just from the premise I was wondering if this was going to explain more about the fake New 52 Themyscira.

    That's where my mind went as well.

    Good theory! Although if true, I hope we never see the New 52 cast again after this. Leave it dead and buried as it should be after all of the damage that was done to Wonder Woman's brand because of it.

    The New 52 Amazons is one strong possibility, but I think there are two strikes against it. The first is that we already re-visited them back in Rucka's Rebirth run, so returning to them would feel a bit redundant. The second is the reference to "Empress Hippolyta". One possibility I'm mulling over is that we get to see a world where the Amazons turned to conquest after they freed themselves from slavery, but I'm sure there are lots more possible options that Orlando and Wilson could have thought up.

    I wonder if instead of the New 52 Amazons, this is about Superwoman's Amazons from Earth 3(Crime Syndicate's Earth)?

    Neat, I wonder if it’s a Dark Multiverse Earth? Either way this sounds like an interesting Elseworld trip.

    Interesting the Diana was captured with chains that can hold her. I hope that’s because her powers don’t work on an earth ruled by other gods, or that she’s forced to surrender when her friends are captured.

    Another theory would be the chains were made to hold Heracles...
    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    That looks like a younger Diana.

    I tweeted at him a few days ago asking if we’d see Duke Dazam and he didn’t reply.

    Regardless, I’m hoping for some deep cuts into the Wonder mythos for this story.

    I wonder if it's a callback to a different multiverse-crossing WW issue -- issue #100, from 1958, featuring the Wonder Woman of Dimension X.

    It was a Kanigher hackpiece once again rehashing a scenario in which WW encounters other versions of herself, in this case a dimension-spanning contest of challenges.

    That Dimension X wasn't a dark and scary realm, like Dimension Chi, but of course X = chi.
