COMICS: Wonder Woman #3 To Radically Alter Diana's Origin
Obviously big SPOILER WARNING on this one. But if you don't mind finding out a fairly big change in the origins on Wonder Woman in the DCnU click for the details from The New York Post..
Ok, you have clicked so from here on SPOILER WARNING in effect. In the DCnU Wonder Woman has a Daddy. And not just any Daddy, the Daddy of all...Daddys. Here is an excerpt from Nypost.com..
By Zeus! Wonder Woman is a daddy's girl. The iconic character is getting something she's never had in her almost 70-year-old history -- a father.
"She's going to learn she's not who she was told she was," "Wonder Woman" writer Brian Azzarello told The Post.
A storyline in the amazing Amazon's newly relaunched comic will reveal she's actually the daughter of Zeus, the thunderbolt throwing father of the Olympian gods.
This is a radical departure from the previous Wonder Woman canon that has maintained over the character's long history. The original origin story had Diana's mother Hippolyta fashion her from clay and have life breathed into her by the other Greek Goddesses. But sometimes a change can be a good thing as writer/artist team Brian Azarello and Jim Lee explain..
"In this case, making her a god actually makes her more human, more relatable," DC co-publisher Jim Lee said.
"Everybody's got a father," Azzarello said. "Even if he's not the nicest guy in the world.
The article also suggests that this will not be the only character receiving a few changes to their origins and more will be revealed at NYCC. What do you guys make of this? I think there are pros and cons to the change but for the most part I'm open to it. For more from Azarello and Lee click the link below.
