Wonder Woman 022
> “Godwatch” part four! Veronica Cale will do anything to save her daughter. If that means destroying the Amazing Amazon, it’s a small price to pay.

$15 MILLION dollars gets you a date with Wonder Woman?! Does that sound worth it to you? Bruce and Lex certainly were willing to pay beaucoup de bucks. A fun opening celebrity auction that helped showcase the lovely change in art.

A solid and acceptably simple chapter - with the ploy by Cale to further her search for the lost land of Themyscira. Diana and Cale posturing for position against each other in the inevitable pending conflict they both anticipate. Nice art. The only disappointments, really, being the ONGOING DISGUSTING alternating issues format, that and, the beautiful cover with the god-dogs included them tiniest of one panel cameos - both literally and figuratively.

Wow. It's an arch enemy of hers and Wonder Woman still gives her a kind peck on the cheek at the end of the date. Now that was... a picture worth a thousand words - not to mention a... what? Generous or paltry $15 million dollar return on Cale's charitable investment? You decide.


Support Cancer Research. Support Alzheimer Research.

Was I the only one who thought Wonder Woman being on an auction block just so someone can date her way out of character? Diana is all about preaching peace and being a Super-Hero, not going on dates with rich men. She's above and beyond that.

I just thought it was all kinds of wrong on so many levels. And then a woman beats out Lex Luthor and Bruce Wayne, some of the richest men in the world?! THE worst issue I've read so far from the rebooted Wonder Woman titles. Too out of character and too outrageous for my tastes.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
