Injustice 2 (2017-) Annual #1

> “PARADISE LOST.” Ever since the overthrow of Superman’s regime, Wonder Woman—his most trusted ally—has been held a prisoner on her native Themyscira. How did she come to this low point? What is it about the Wonder Woman of this world that made her so very different from any other incarnation and susceptible to Superman’s brutal, world- conquering vision? When was love lost and when did the greatest heart harden? The tragic story is told here.

Is it worth the $4.99 'special' annual tag price? Can you summarize her tweaked origin?

In a word...no.




The Annual was very underwhelming because it was a shortened version of the Wonder Woman movie with some key differences. The origin story takes place in WW II instead of the first World War. Steve is a Nazi spy and a villain whom Diana kills. No Ares boss fight. And when Diana presses her bracers together, it creates that explosion just like in the movie. But the context of that happened a bit differently than the movie. At first, Diana is good but then learns that humanity is evil. When Diana learns Steve is a Nazi spy, that seems to have pushed her a bit over the edge. It also explains why Wonder Woman is so out of character when she sides with Superman in the modern day.

Not a good origin IMO. But then again, I am completely biased against any origin where she's a daughter of Zeus. \(no\)

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?
