An interesting issue. At first, it left me scratching my head as to how Diana seemed to know these Star Sapphires. But then the issue itself answers my question. During a post crisis story, Wonder Woman became a Star Sapphire during the Blackest Night saga. And since that story arc is still canon in the GL books, it makes sense that it would be considered canon for Diana. I believe that is the only Post Crisis story that is confirmed as still a part of Diana's history, however. I hope Batman's kiss is out of canon, however, but it's likely in rather than out since it happened at the end of that story *Shudders*
I liked Diana's updated Star Sapphire costume. But what I didn't like was that she didn't even use the ring. Which leads me to think she was made to "look" like a Star Sapphire rather than given a ring (I couldn't spot one on her finger).
A decent issue.
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?
