dimwitted but things are changing gradually Comic titles such as Jessica Jones, Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel, Saga just to name a few are injecting a much needed feminism in the comics industry and depict real women dealing with real world issues affecting women Besides fighting the obligatory supervillain, these women must also deal with rape Jessica Jones , sexual harassment in the military Captain Marvel , being a teenage Muslim girl growing up in the U.S Ms Marvel , and raising a child Saga.The superheroines of today, of course, owe a huge debt to one pioneering superheroine of yesteryear Created by William Moulton Marston and premeiring in All Star Comics 8 in 1941, Wonder Woman revolutionized comic books and broadened a market that was thought to be dominated solely by young boys As it turned out, girls loved comic books, too, and the introduction of Wonder Woman created a flood of new comic book heroines.Marston, a controversial figure for many reasons, was a feminist who believed that women had suffered enough under the oppressiveness of patriarchy and that it was about time for a female uprising He was also a polygamist.Sadly, over the years, Wonder Woman began to slip into mediocrity, as new male writers who didn t share Marston s feminist views took over the title In later years, Wonder Woman simply became a glorified secretary for her male counterparts, fetching coffee and allowing Superman to smack her ass every once in a while Embarrassing By the early 1980s, Wonder Woman was a failing title in the DC Comics line up.Then, in 1986, legendary comics writer and artist George Perez had the opportunity to reinvigorate the title with a reboot of her origin story Perez was signed on to do the first six issues Five years later he was scripting and inking one of the most popular titles in the DC line up.Perez is a legend for many reasons His artwork alone is worthy of mention the attention to detail, the cinematic flourishes, the bright use of color but coupled with his incredibly intelligent story telling, Perez stands alone as one of the best comic book writers in the industry.Perez infuses his epic Wonder Woman series with Greek mythology, Lovecraftian horror, and a subtle tongue in cheek humor He takes Marston s well known origin story and expands it gloriously.If you don t know the story, here it is in a nutshell Wonder Woman is the daughter of Queen Hippolyte of the s, a race of powerful women created by the goddesses Artemis, Athena, Aphrodite, Demeter, and Hestia The male leaders of Greece became jealous and lustful of the s, waging war with them The demigod Heracles leads his men to the ian city of Themyscira, but Heracles is bested by Hippolyte Pretending to be allies now, Heracles and his men trick the s and take the city, enslaving, torturing, and raping the s The s eventually rose up and waged a vicious war against their captors The goddesses who created them were disappointed in the s, as they seemed to take pleasure in bloody battle and were no better than the men that had mistreated them As punishment, the goddesses banished the s to Paradise Island, where they would live forever, away from the world of man.Hippolyte found herself pregnant, and while never mentioned, it is hinted that it is the product of Heracles raping her She gives birth to a girl that she names Diana, who grows up to be extremely powerful.When a USAF jet pilot named Steve Trevor crashes his plane over Paradise Island, Diana rescues him and nurses him back to life She decides to take him back to the world of man, against the wishes of her mother.In the original comic books, the setting is World War II In Perez s reboot, the setting is during the height of the Cold War of the 80s.In Perez reboot, the God of War Ares has been playing both sides the U.S and the Soviet Union against each other, strategically placing hawkish hardliners in positions of power in both countries Ares longs for thermonuclear war so that he can rule the post apocalyptic wasteland.Wonder Woman, with her trusty golden lasso a gift from the gods , manages to stop Ares before launching a nuclear war, convincing him that a post nuclear world would leave nobody and nothing to rule In a vision, Ares sees himself alone in the galaxy with nobody to wage war against, a potential future too frightening for him to contemplate.After saving the world, she must then deal with Zeus, who basically wants to have sex with her When Diana rebuffs his moves, Zeus becomes angry and wants to destroy her Hera steps in, thankfully, and instead offers a challenge for Wonder Woman, one that will involve her going to Hades.This volume includes the first 14 issues of the Wonder Woman comic series starting in 1986 It is a must have for any fan of comic books, and especially for Wonder Woman fans

    Wonder Woman has always been a problem for me Because I don t dislike the character, butI haven t read a lot of Wonder Woman comics that I loved I like her a lot in some ensemble books, like Kingdom Come and some JLA But solo Well, lets talk about why.1 Her rogues gallery sucksThe bad guys in Wonder Woman are kinda shitty Look at Batman That shit runs deep Even your third tier characters, your Mr Freezes, have some solid moments Solomon Grundy Seems dumb, but Long Halloween has a Wonder Woman has always been a problem for me Because I don t dislike the character, butI haven t read a lot of Wonder Woman comics that I loved I like her a lot in some ensemble books, like Kingdom Come and some JLA But solo Well, lets talk about why.1 Her rogues gallery sucksThe bad guys in Wonder Woman are kinda shitty Look at Batman That shit runs deep Even your third tier characters, your Mr Freezes, have some solid moments Solomon Grundy Seems dumb, but Long Halloween has a great Grundy That sounds like an exclamation Great Grundy Spider Man Probably the best rogues gallery Enough bad guys that he has a Sinister Six His own team of bad guys Wonder Woman I mean, Cheetah So like a slower Flash lady in tacky tights Yawn On the flipside, we have someone like Ares or Zeus, but in the comics, it s not like they re fistfighting Wonder Woman They do that godly, set things up in a bizarre plan sort of thing And gods, as characters, aren t usually 3 dimensional, interesting characters Nobody I can hang my hat on 2 Her powers are extremely flexibleCan Wonder Woman fly Well, it depends Golden Age No In this book Yes 10 years later Maybe In the movie No Is she harmed by bullets or would she need to deflect them with her bracelets This happens with all heroes, for sure Spider Man can sometimes hold up a building, sometimes would have a hard time lifting a car over his head BUT, Spider Man isn t bulletproof on some days And homeboy can t fly I m good with any level of a power, like if someone is super strong, eh, that can be malleable With Wonder Woman, it feels a little like her powers change based on the story someone wants to tell What keeps charactersinteresting to me is when new stories come up but the characters are still within the same limitations 3 The gods and heroes thing doesn t work for meThis book was an exception It bridged the gap between old mythology and modern day really well This had some, ahem, objectionable results re Heracles, but we ll talk about that last, at the end, for anyone who s interested and okay with a spoiler But most times, I feel like Wonder Woman along with Thor makes the whole universe weird because of the connection to gods and such My personal theory, this works in the movies because they can carefully decide where it begins and ends It s not like an 80 year continuous story the way it is in the comics I recommend this volume It lines up the origin in a way that makes sense, the plot is big without seeming totally ridiculous Likeyou can see why it s important, but it also seems like Wonder Woman can rise to the occasion and solve the problem It makes sense in a comic book kind of way You can read this one without having read any Wonder Woman comics before, and this is probably the one that had the biggest influence on the movie The whole rape thing with spoilers I m about to ride a line here of sounding like some sort of rape apologist, perhaps Which I m not What I want to say is complicated, and I just want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that this is a fictional rape that happened to a fictional character that was in no way real It s my belief that fiction does not have to play by the rules of real life, and I feel like the discussion of a fictional rape is open to discussion in a way that a real rape is not That s the perspective of the person you re about to read, so if that sort of thing is a huge issue for you, I think we should just part ways here Just click away to something else benbencatcat is one of the best cats on Instagram, and it would serve anyone better to scroll through that feed than to read this So the book opens in a very mythological style with Heracles leading a band of men to the s, then raping and pillaging Not graphically, but there are no bones that this happened, including Heracles forcing himself on Wonder Woman s mom though Heracles is not Wonder Woman s father This is also tied up in a lot of that mythology stuff with gods indirectly influencing and blah blah blah.Heracles ends up imprisoned in classic mythological style, which is the realm of prisons where a dude has his eyes eaten by birds every day and shit like that for like a thousand years Wonder Woman s mom rescues him from his imprisonment, and at the end of the story, Heracles has not only been forgiven, there is a small spark of possible love between Heracles and Wonder Mom They kiss.Obviously I wouldn t argue that I don t see the problem here What I want to say is this Wonder Woman lives in the world of mythology, and we re talking about a mythology where Zeus basically had one of those wheels that makes the animal noises, the ones for little kids And he d pull the ripcord, see which animal it landed on, and that s either what he d turn himself into or have sex with The swan says MeToo So I know that s a problem for some readers, but for me, it was thematically aligned with the whole gods and monsters thing Mythology is weird with sex stuff, so I think that it s distasteful, and at the same time it fits It doesn t HAVE to be there, I m good with a different version of mythology, butLet me put it like this one of those Expendables movies is all about human trafficking or something The aging action stars are attempting to stop a truly heinous crime, andit s like, not for THIS movie Have the bad guys steal a weird bomb or something A bizarre plot with space satellites Not sex trafficking An Expendables movies should be wacky and fun, and that s just a complete wrong turn It s not on theme When Van Damme throws a knife in the air and kicks it into Thor s brother s chest, that s not a movie where I think we should be getting into this shit In this version of Wonder Woman, this rape and pillage thing is distasteful, but it s on theme within the context of ancient mythology where this stuff was happening all the time, and that mythology is pretty heavy throughout So while I don t require it for verisimilitude, it doesn t feel totally out of place We re not chugging along in a fun, sexless, victimless world and this comes out of nowhere.Now let s talk about the forgiveness aspect.I think its inclusion is complicated.We could view it as just lazy, thoughtless and a complete misread of the character, and that s where most interpretations go I think Perez did a pretty good job over 400 pages of comics here, writing quite a few strong female characters, so it begs the question, What if it s not If we can be so bold to ask the question, we have to look for a different answer.Here s mine.I think characters are alwayscompelling when they make bad choices It s my opinion that Wonder Mom is making a bad choice It s an extreme, god proportion version of a woman going back to the arms of her abuser Which is a thing that happens It s totally reasonable to not like the inclusion of forgiveness in this fashion, and I think it s also reasonable to read this as a case where someone wrote a character making the wrong choice.I think one of the primary issues with this is that it takes what would otherwise be an empowering piece for women and turns it into something that s not so empowering Perfect women are women for people to look up to, especially young people Kids don t really make bad decisions so much as they re manipulated by adults I mean, sure, kids do dumb shit, but we re not talking about a treehouse of questionable construction here I m of the opinion that this is an adult oriented book, and having characters that are problematic is appropriate for an adult book Bad decisions belong in an adult book because adults make bad decisions And we have to learn to reconcile with people who ve made bad choices that we would never make On a big scale So.It s a weird thing to think about, and I m still not totally sure how I feel about the whole thing For me, the question was Why didn t this bother me and I wanted to explore the answer in writing I hope this exploration has been helpful or interesting to someone else But if not, again, benbencatcat

    300 pages of story, an entire year s worth of issues brought together in a lovely and affordable volume, and a character defining story that reintroduced Wonder Woman to the world in the 1980s This is my favorite era of comics, but I didn t read much Wonder Woman back then I m glad I can read these issues now The stories still hold up today And what stories Filled with exposition, drama, emotion, and delight, you really feel like you get your money s worth and each page is packed George P 300 pages of story, an entire year s worth of issues brought together in a lovely and affordable volume, and a character defining story that reintroduced Wonder Woman to the world in the 1980s This is my favorite era of comics, but I didn t read much Wonder Woman back then I m glad I can read these issues now The stories still hold up today And what stories Filled with exposition, drama, emotion, and delight, you really feel like you get your money s worth and each page is packed George Perez is a touchstone in comic book art And he creates Princess Diana s world before she ever appears in it I have to admit, the focus on the gods and goddesses gets a little too Clash of the Titans after awhile, as Wonder Woman isinteresting to me in a modern world setting, bouncing bullets off of her bracelets and flying an invisible jet which doesn t exist here instead she uses winged sandals to fly I like her as an ambassador of peace, not a gladiator, and here we get a mix of both But this book is still serious fun and pure class The volume has a nice epilogue so you aren t left hanging, only wanting , and I can t wait to see what adventures are next for Wonder Woman, as told by the magnificent George Perez Bring on Cheetah

    George Perez s Wonder Woman came on the heels of the DCU altering Crisis on Infinite Earths In it, the Silver and Bronze Age Wonder Woman was disintegrated by the Anti Monitor, and her protoplasmic remnants were de aged It was a weird scene, but it helped set the stage for a reboot of DC s premier female character And let s face it, Wonder Woman s comic for years was rather substandard Poor writing and mediocre artists and sent the book into bi monthly six times a year publishing status fo George Perez s Wonder Woman came on the heels of the DCU altering Crisis on Infinite Earths In it, the Silver and Bronze Age Wonder Woman was disintegrated by the Anti Monitor, and her protoplasmic remnants were de aged It was a weird scene, but it helped set the stage for a reboot of DC s premier female character And let s face it, Wonder Woman s comic for years was rather substandard Poor writing and mediocre artists and sent the book into bi monthly six times a year publishing status for a long time, and even when comics legends Roy Thomas and Gene Colan took over a few years before this event, it still didn t strike a huge chord with fans.What was wrong It s hard to say, other than the previously mentioned poor stories I think a lot of it had to do with the constant revisions to Wonder Woman s character and supporting cast Steve Trevor was killed and brought back to life a few times, Wonder Woman herself changed jobs frequently, and she never really showed what a bad ass she could be, like Superman and Batman at least were theoretically capable of being These problems afflicted Supergirl, too And although her mod Diana Prince phase, where she was no longer immortal and had no powers, was full of rather cool stories and concepts, it suffered from a lack of consistency of the basic underlying premise of Wonder Woman s feminism Perez, who was the artist but also the plotter scripts are by Greg Potter and Len Wein , changed all that when Wonder Woman 1 hit the stands Basically filling out the traditional Wonder Woman origin story with tons and tons of Greek mythology, Perez brought a sense of grandeur to the book, something Wonder Woman never had before Her world and, yes, mythology, were as full as anything of Superman and Batman, and best of all, she had a sense of purpose, of why she was called to go into the outer world.This collection is fourteen issues, and although the book takes place as the DC events Legends and Millennium, Perez keeps Wonder Woman s interactions with the rest of the DCU at a base minimum This allowed him time to explore Wonder Woman and make her into a strong heroine of her own, without relying on Superman and the Justice League, for example, to prop her up and steal some of her shine This book is all about Wonder Woman Princess Diana, her mother and the other s, Steve Trevor, new characters Julia Kapakelis and her daughter Vanessa, and how all of them get wrapped up into the great mythological battles between Ares and Mt Olympus, and the lecherous meanderings of Zeus and the god Pan It s cinematic in scope, and the characterizations, albeit a tad melodramatic thirty years later, is spot on and give us a side of Steve Trevor in particular, that we never had before.This book was a major deal when it first came out I m glad to have a chance to re read this after all these years and see that it stills stands up as an entertaining and modern take on a classic character

    After all my complaining about the other Wonder Woman comics I ve been reading, I just want to say that I enjoyed all of this Thank god Diana s written as a real, fully imagined character here, among a cast of other real, fully imagined characters, both male and female She s kind of weird and foreign, as you d imagine a semi mythical creature trapped on a phantom island might be, and generally sort of naive and uncynical Her love and respect for the people around her is palpable, too my fav After all my complaining about the other Wonder Woman comics I ve been reading, I just want to say that I enjoyed all of this Thank god Diana s written as a real, fully imagined character here, among a cast of other real, fully imagined characters, both male and female She s kind of weird and foreign, as you d imagine a semi mythical creature trapped on a phantom island might be, and generally sort of naive and uncynical Her love and respect for the people around her is palpable, too my favorite part was her disappointment at her publicist for throwing her under the bus How could one woman do that to another How indeed, girl Other great things although the art looks kind of dated by virtue of the fact that it is dated, it s also crazily dynamic and beautiful and there are tons of different body types represented All of the character designs are so great, from Etta Candy a soldier, not a sorority sister to the various myth tinged monsters and villains Diana manages to look both strong and gorgeous, and gets banged up in a fight without it turning into battle cheesecake At no point did it seem like characters were posing for the sake of posing, which was soooo refreshing It just generally seemed like the writer put a ton of effort into imagining the world behind the comic, and that the story wasn t even fully told like there s plenty of other lore that Perez came up with and didn t even get to include in this volume

    I m going to come right out and say it I ve never been a Wonder Woman fan.For a lifetime, I have been ambivalent, if not dismissive and annoyed towards the comic70s tv show with catchy theme song Eh Blockbuster, much lauded movie Meh Revamping the character in the 1980s SOLD Apparently.If you re interested in seeing what makes Diana so endearing, I would say start here Perez s run on the book is stellar Diana is all too human sweet, understanding, in way over her head, and I m going to come right out and say it I ve never been a Wonder Woman fan.For a lifetime, I have been ambivalent, if not dismissive and annoyed towards the comic70s tv show with catchy theme song Eh Blockbuster, much lauded movie Meh Revamping the character in the 1980s SOLD Apparently.If you re interested in seeing what makes Diana so endearing, I would say start here Perez s run on the book is stellar Diana is all too human sweet, understanding, in way over her head, and has some serious self doubt She doesn t think of herself as being this empowering symbol of feminism as subsequent artists writers have made her , but as someone who has a very important message and mission I ve read enough comics to know that nothing is ever set in stone, and since Perez s run on the character, her backstory has changed once again , her personality has changed yup , but this was the book that made it all click Will I seek out Wonder Woman comics now Probably not Would I recommend this run to people Yes

    I didn t think I cared for this anthology at first The drawing style is dated, for one thing, with most women coming off as almost ugly And the emotional level of the story is off the charts There is no build up It goes from zero to 60 immediately, and stays there What I wouldn t give for some pacing If I never again see Ares screaming something like Acknowledge me as the greatest of all gods, or die in unimaginable agony , it ll be too soon But the book grew on me There s a lot here t I didn t think I cared for this anthology at first The drawing style is dated, for one thing, with most women coming off as almost ugly And the emotional level of the story is off the charts There is no build up It goes from zero to 60 immediately, and stays there What I wouldn t give for some pacing If I never again see Ares screaming something like Acknowledge me as the greatest of all gods, or die in unimaginable agony , it ll be too soon But the book grew on me There s a lot here that I haven t seen before, like Diana s introduction to man s world it s a little like Crocodile Dundee in New York , her promotion as a superhero by a professional businesswoman, and her testing by the U.S military It s not a little offensive that, after deflecting the bullets of three machine guns and crushing the guns with her hands, the Major overseeing the testing was only starting to be impressed It took Diana stopping a fighter jet and lifting and toppling a tank for him to grow to respect her It s a vast improvement from the complete lack of respect given the original Wonder Woman, but it still has a long way to go
