    Robinson's intent would seem to be to show how blind and dangerously misguided familial loyalty can make some people, and Diana's absurd claims that she could, and would, have defeated the Darkseid that had just defeated and killed her almighty father supports that suggestion of how dangerous fanaticism can be to one's relatives, yes, this seems to be the writers aim. And yet, does any of it make true sense?

Is Zeus dead?

In any case, this thread caught my interest because I thought, judging by the comic book cover, that this story line was meant to pick up the New Gods threads from Azarello's tenure. Apparently such is not the case, unfortunately. Too bad. Back in Azarello's run, right when I was about to start reading Wonder Woman again because the New Gods seemed to be taking a prominent position in Diana's story, we got instead the stupid romance between Diana and Clark, and the New Gods story was forgotten. I would have loved to read about Diana and Orion as a couple. There was so much story potential there. Instead we got Diana and Clark. Yawn. There was never any possibility that Clark would ever be separated for long from his classic love, Lois Lane. Diana and Clark were never going to be anything more than a very temporary gimmick - which by the way was dragged out for a surprisingly long time. But Diana and Orion had real potential to be a love story for the ages. Oh well. Not to be, I guess.
