I thought this was retconned or forgotten about, but it's FINALLY going to be the focus of a future storyline. Diana is going to find out about Jason, her twin brother.

Personally, I was hoping that this storyline would be forgotten, but okay here it is. I think the issue was timing with a dash of sexism.

Wonder Woman had just made how much money..and instead of capitalizing on that and bringing in the people that loved the movie, but not currently reading the comic...you announce a storyline that's going to start in .....September, but fail to mention what is currently available!?! I think Marvel had the same problem as well with what was portrayed in the movies...was not happening in the comics. I could be wrong, so don't attack me for it.

I say sexism, because between the ending of Rucka's writing, and before Robinson starts, there will be a woman writer on Wonder Woman. Not only that, but she has been writing WW under the DC Girls umbrella (which I understand has been very profitable for the company). Why didn't they mention that?!?! This is marketing 101. You have a female lead, female director....why not mention the female writing the comicbook?!?!! Why would you mention the male writer, talking about the brother?!!? Stupid.

I'm not that excited about Jason, because Diana already has a sibling that has not been currently shown ( Nubia) and...just like Azz; Robinson can be great or sh*t. lol

I don't understand the comparison between Diana and Thor. Jason is not replacing Diana; they are going be to estranged siblings with (I think) equal 'time' in the book. That is not the situation with Thor and Jane Foster's Thor. It is more like Thor and Angela. And aside from Angela's on short-lived series....I haven't seen Angela usurping Thor's presence in the Marvel Universe ( I could be wrong, haven't read Thor in 20+ years). So all that caca, is just caca to me.
