DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.

"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth

DC Comics changes Wonder Woman’s origin to include father

During the lead up to the relaunch of Wonder Woman, there were suggestions that the Wonder Woman origin might be revised and the story of her a fatherless child being formed out of clay by Hippolyta  and brought to life by the Gods would be tossed. And it has been. DC announced this morning that Wonder Woman has a dad and his name is Zeus.

According to the NY Post:

“She’s going to learn she’s not who she was told she was,” “Wonder Woman” writer Brian Azzarello told The Post.

A story in the amazing Amazon’s newly relaunched comic will reveal she’s actually the daughter of Zeus, the thunderbolt-throwing father of Olympian gods.

She won’t discover her true origins until “Wonder Woman” No. 3, which goes on sale next month.

The origin of Wonder Woman was developed by Wonder Woman’s creator William Marston.

The origin was a key part of the character and recounted many times in comics.

Gail Simone’s first arc when writing the series included another look at the origin, The Circle, which examined the impact the “birth” of Diana had on the childless Amazons.

I’ll be back with some thoughts later.
