Yes, we should totally bring back Donna Troy only to kill her a couple of issues later! That will be an amazing, incredible plot point that so many Wonder Woman fans — who let’s face it, are the only ones buying this book besides those who must read every DC book no matter how terrible — will love and cherish.
This book continues to be so painful and a cheaply disguised long rant about the terrible “true” nature of radical feminism. Here we have Donna full of grief over Violet’s death (who they finally give a name!), and there she goes again about killing all the bad men. Dang feminists and their misandry!
Continue to be 100% over Aegeus and his god killing arrows. Same with randomly introducing Eirene without any other mention of her or slight involvement anywhere else. This over-the-top reliance on the world of gods in these books continues to be a distraction to everything Wonder Woman was ever about. Sure, the gods have always been a part of Wonder Woman — heck, they granted her powers — but now it’s like she’s on some patriarchal telenova featuring the Olympian Gods and that’s her story.

Welp, I will give this book an extra star today because I never expected it to get rid of the incredibly stupid Diana as the God of War plot. It still ranks low because, oh yeah, Zeke/Zeus did all the work with some deus ex machina. Shazam. All fixed, thanks to a baby. Ares and Apollo are back and same with Donna. Now hopefully, we can move on.
You’d think this, but then we see Eirene pulling back in Aegeus for not living up to his bargain with her. Even when she got Ares back. And since Eirene suddenly got all jealous that Diana was trying to be the Goddess of Peace, guess what I think is going to happen!
Oh, this terrible book. Maybe when the new, new, new rebirth of the 52 happens, we will get a new, new, new creative team on this book.

Ugh. I know, all of you, gentle readers, are like, why don’t you just look away from this trainwreck? I can’t, friends, I can’t.
In a world where I thought with Ares back that meant Diana wasn’t the God of War anymore, surprise! She still is. You just wrote yourself back into the hole, Finch.
I know, I should get excited because DC has announced DC Rebirth, where they’re rebooting all their titles again. That means this trash won’t be canon anymore, and they are going back to Wonder Woman’s original origin where she was made of clay. (Currently, this origin is being told in the new Legend of Wonder Woman, which is on my to-read pile.)
In conclusion, boobs don’t work like Cheetah’s here and why are we in Wonder Woman’s old new costume here?
