Wonder Woman (2016-) #36

> “CHILDREN OF THE GODS” part four! Captured by Darkseid’s daughter, Wonder Woman finds herself in chains and at the mercy of the Lord of Apokalips. As Darkseid begins to steal her powers to increase his rise back to godhood, an unexpected ally appears to face down the one-time God of Evil.

> "URGRUND" gets a namedrop. Does "Doris Zeul" ring a bell? See 2 vs 1. OMG appearance at end!


What did you think?

Finally, an issue that was actually good. Jason was conflicted in this issue, wondering if his siding with Grail was the right choice or not. Even as Diana was beaten by Grail's fists, the whole scene reminded me of Luke being tortured by the Emperor and Darth Vader's own conflicted emotions. Jason is still a dick, though. His motivations still don't make any sense.

Even a young Darkseid proves too much for Diana to handle. As it should be. I don't like Diana's arrogance, though. She says something about beating Darkseid when she knows full well she's not nearly powerful enough for that. I miss Diana's humility before the New 52 made her so arrogant.

Looks like Zeus is going to have a beat down with Darkseid. I don't think this is going to end well for Zeus.

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?
