In these early days of Wonder Woman as shown in this book, Diana is wearing her current costume almost. Does this mean that this is kind of retconning away the Geoff Johns New 52 Justice League origin? I sure hope so because she wore a different outfit in that I have seen. Maybe that means we get Martian Manhunter as JLA-founder again! I won’t hold my breath but that would be great. Anyways, this is another issue of the best series DC is putting out currently outside of Detective Comics. In this issue, we focus on Cheetah’s origin as Wonder Woman is stopped from helping Dr. Minerva when she transforms into Cheetah by Veronica Cale and Dr. Cyber. I like how Rucka portrays Veronica Cale as being so conflicted about this. She has clearly not turned into the villain she will later become. I suspect something may happen to her daughter that puts her over the edge. Rucka’s work on this series continues to impress me. It is the best Wonder Woman has been…well…since his last run on the title.
