Wonder Woman – The Lies | Comics

As her memories keeps changing, Wonder Woman cannot even rely on her Lasso of Truth and will seek help from one of her greatest enemies.

In her vision, Wonder Woman starts seeing memories that she cannot recall properly. She is confused about the story of her birth as if she was forged from clay on the shore of Paradise Island by Hippolyta out of her wish for a daughter or is she truly the daughter of Zeus after all and this bothers her.

She looks at the helm of the God of War, which she is, yet she hesitates to believe even that. Her time with the Amazons of Themyscira and her mother reminds her of memories she still cannot verify as it keeps changing.

Diana then crushes the helmet between her bare hands, which is also an impossible feat for anyone. So, she uses the Lasso of Truth on herself and it confirms that she's been deceived and she had a brief glimpse of her other counterparts from the Multiverse. Leaving her costume behind, Wonder Woman takes new attire and goes to Olympus seeking truth.

She faced off a few Automatons there created by her brother Hephaestus and after a brief fight with those sentries; she realizes that this is not even the real Olympus at all. This whole entirety is just another lie that is being fed to her.

Wonder Woman then goes to Bwunda woods of the Banakane Rainforest, looking for help of someone she knows but is seemingly followed by a feral pack of werehyenas called Boudas all along. When attacked by them, she took all of them down with ease and then is confronted by her former friend Barbara Ann Minerva AKA Cheetah.

She savagely greeted Diana with claws and pinned her to the ground. Upon restraining her with some efforts, Diana then explains her reasons for which she has been forced to turn to her arch-enemy to seek help finding her home Themyscira and how they can both help each other now.

Meanwhile, Steve Trevor and his boys were trying to take down a local warlord named Andres Cadulo, who is about to resurrect Urzkartaga; an ancient plant-god, to help him conquer world and he is also the person responsible for creation of Cheetah.

Commander Etta Candy of A.R.G.U.S. instructs Master Chief Steve Trevor and her boys to get to Urzkartaga before Andres Cadulo does and so, the team heads to their objective therefore. They all were eventually captured at the hands of Cadulo's men and Steve was chosen by Cadulo to be sacrificed as a vessel for Urzkartaga.

After battling a small horde of Boudas together, Wonder Woman and Cheetah talked it out about working on their differences. While still blaming her for being unable to prevent what has happened, Cheetah asks Diana to help her kill Urzkartaga to remove the curse that is upon her and has turned her into this feral state permanently.

These two then breaks into the secret holdout where Cadulo has kept Steve and his boys captive and frees them from Boudas before finally facing the menacing Urzkartaga in battle.

Suicide Squad – Discipline and Punish | Comics

Director Amanda Waller has welcomed a new guest in the Belle Reve Penitentiary to monitor the squad members and analyze them psychologically.

As Voltaic repeatedly tries to get on the nerves of Soldier, he succeeds and eventually receives a fatal beating from him. Waller talks to a chair strapped Deadshot about how he really died twice during his missions and how they revived him every time. A leggy blonde enters King Shark’s room to draw his attention towards her and then is immediately chewed in half when insulting him and is revealed to be an android.

The Clown Prince of Crime also makes an appearance at Harley’s cell reprising the lines from their interviews only to get shot in the head by Unknown Soldier, who in turn gets stabbed by Quinn in the gut. A riot breaks in all of a sudden, which prompts Harley and Deadshot to make a break from the Penitentiary but she ends up striking a new deal with Waller’s guest about their team.

As he pretty much enjoyed his time in Belle Reve Penitentiary, he accepts the offer to join Task Force X as an adviser. Meanwhile, an attempt to bring Voltaic back to life with Samsara Serum fails and uncovers new deadly aspects of the serum. The entire Squad then heads to Las Vegas looking for an anarcho-terrorist organization run by The Mother and this time Cheetah joins the team.

Wonder Woman – New 52 | Comics

The ancient legends foretold that Amazonian princess Diana Prince was born of The Amazon's Queen Hippolyta’s strong desire for a child, who molded her daughter out of a lump of clay and then later breathed life into it, who was blessed with the powers of the Gods of Olympus. However, her seemingly perfect birth story was actually a fake and she learned about her true origin as she grew up but this revelation came with a great personal burden that she has been carrying ever since. Not only she is the greatest among her own race, she is also a champion of justice.

Year One
Up until Steve Trevor crash-landed in a plane to the secret island of Themyscira, Diana never knew much of the outside world and always wanted to go and explore it. The Amazon's decided to send Trevor back to Man's World with one of them as an ambassador and there was a tournament of Amazons to find out who that would be. Diana bested her sisters and even passed the final test by her mother before receiving her fabled Lasso of Truth. In United States, she stopped a terrorist attack and the press immediately dubbed her "Wonder Woman".

Wonder Woman – New 52 | Comics

It was kept as a secret for Diana's sake all along because of the infamous jealousy of Zeus's wife Hera and she has become a powerful Amazon fatale because of her divine bloodline. When Zeus goes missing and Hera was up with her evil scheme after finding out the secret origin of Wonder Woman, she went to Themyscira to exact vengeance on Queen Hippolyta. Diana later learns that she was actually the daughter of Zeus and Hippolyta. This demigoddess successfully thwarted her plans of killing Athena's young incarnation Zola for carrying Zeus's child and learnt about her origin using her golden Lasso of Truth.

Justice League: Origin
With her liaison Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman was in Washington D.C. for her duties as a representative of her people but then she almost immediately joined the team of Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, Green lantern, Superman and The Flash in the wake of the Parademons invasion from Apokolips heralding their master Darkseid. Diana bravely fought against the demonic invading army and even bested The Dark God himself, wounding one of his eyes. She finds a liking in Superman in the battlefield. The magnificent seven of them soon forms the Justice League and made their alliance known to public.

While Diana was busy dealing with Hera on Mount Olympus, Hades kidnapped Zola and took her to Hell. She seeks assistance from Hephaestus and Hades sent a monster to kill them all but Diana took it down. She also learns a shocking truth of a race of men who are her long-lost abandoned brothers. In Hell, Eros, Hermes, Lennox and Wonder Woman found Zola after fighting the minions Hades have sent after them. As they were about to leave, Hades states that one of them should leave behind and since Diana couldn't arrange his marriage with Hera, she should remain as his wife.

Using Eros' pistols, Hades shot Diana to make her fall under love's spell. When he asked her to prove her love to him, she managed to break from the bond as it is in her capacity to love everyone but since Hades is unknown about the concept of love, he couldn't understand it. Artemis and Apollo then kidnap Zola to hand her over to Hera in exchange for the throne of Mount Olympus. Diana arrives to save Zola and reminded Apollo of a prophecy of a child of Zeus killing a god for the throne. Thus, threatening him to leave Zola and her child alone or she will fulfill the prophecy herself.

When Zola gave birth to a son, it was taken away by Hermes, who gave the baby to Demeter. Hera is rendered mortal after being cast out from Olympus and is forced to hang out with them. As she seeks her brother Milan for clues to find the baby, Wonder Woman crosses paths with the New God Orion, who's after Zola's son. In Manhattan, Zola and Hera was found in a bar with War, who leads them to Demeter. Diana and Orion even worked together to find the boy before War took the baby ripping from Demeter and she eventually managed to retrieve the boy from her uncle.

Wonder Woman finally came to terms with War and he admitted her success in impaired family into a strong alliance. The boy has been named Zeke and Apollo sent Artemis to kill the boy only to be defeated by Diana. Two other illegitimate offspring of Zeus; First Born and Cassandra attacked the band, setting them off-balance. To move everyone to safety, Orion opened a Boom Tube to New Genesis and Lennox decides to sacrifice himself to keep First Born from chasing his allies. After they took some time to heal, Diana wished to get back to Earth and Highfather complied. She came back in London to face an army of hyena men of the First Born and unexpectedly received help from Ares.

When challenged and engaged in a fight with the First Born, Wonder Woman quickly realizes that she cannot bring him down as easily as she thought. To give Diana a fighting chance, War confronts the First Born and she impaled both of them with a spear. War died happily seeing her becoming a great warrior and War's helmet is given to Diana by Strife after she is declared the Goddess of War by the Gods of Olympus. As she goes to face Cassandra, Diana is accompanied by Hermes, Orion and Siracca. Hera was restored of her godhood by Apollo before he died and she brought all Amazons back to life.

Though Hera turned all Amazons as they were except Hippolyta and she was unable to revert the Amazon Queen with her power. Wonder Woman tells Zola to stay on Themyscira with Zeke and told her sisters to change their social views about men as she brought her abandoned brothers to Paradise Island. They all prepare to face First Born since he was attacking other gods in order to conquer all and Diana was captured by him. She planned on place Zeke on the throne of Olympus to end all madness but Zola and Zeke eventually turned out to be a reincarnation of Athena and Zeus.

In absence of Queen Hippolyta, Diana had to accept the Amazon throne till she brings her mother back to normal. When the Justice League came to investigate an environmental catastrophe, she had a run in with Swamp Thing, thinking he is responsible. Meanwhile, the Amazon council forces her to choose between staying in Paradise Island forever as their Queen or leave the throne. Troubled with these choices, she found comfort in the spirit of Hippolyta who suggested her to follow her duty as God of War. She discovered that the Amazon have created a warrior from magical clay named Donna Troy to take her place as Queen.

Wonder Woman is one of the most popular DC Comics fictional super heroines based on the idea of William Moulton Marston in 1941. The character gained a new and revised origin point in The New 52 rebooted timeline of the Prime Earth. Currently, the post-Flashpoint fourth monthly ongoing volume of Wonder Woman is being plotted by writer Brian Azzarello (Deathblow, Hellblazer) and illustrated by artist Cliff Chiang and it started publishing by DC Comics from 2011 along with other The New 52 titles. Aside from her regular appearance on her solo book, Wonder Woman also features on the monthly issues of the Justice League series on a regular basis.

A Goddess Among Mortals

Before being re-introduced to the post-Flashpoint timeline, Wonder Woman already had many decades worth of legacy that was sort of re-imagined by the series creators. Diana had a long-ongoing thing going on with Steve Trevor but that did not work out in the end and she hooked-up with the Man of Steel. So, she commonly appears alongside Superman in a monthly ongoing series of their own titled Superman/Wonder Woman, which mostly focuses on relationship aspects of Clark and Diana as well as the impact this pairing has on the whole world. Diana of Themyscira was also involved as well as in action during many controversial and world-ending events on Prime Earth.
