Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. Pictures, 2016. 

In principle, I should have been excited about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

First I just want to say that this week I got some pretty exciting Wonder Woman news. There’s going to be another Wonder Woman series in addition to her own comic and Superman Loves Wonder Woman or whatever that one’s called. Coming up in August is Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman, an anthology title featuring Wonder Woman stories outside of New 52 continuity (thank Hera for that!), and first up is one of my faves, writer Gail Simone! So it’s like Adventures of Superman or Legends of the Dark Knight, in that an ever-changing group of creators can just tell Wonder Woman stories without worrying about how they fit into the current status quo. Coming after the horrific news that David Finch (who had the honor of creating the hands-down worst of the new Batman series and whose depiction of Wonder Woman already became a popular object of internet mockery) will be taking over the main Wonder Woman title after Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang finish up their arc, this new announcement is a breath of fresh air. Sensation Comics is the first bit of Wonder Woman-related good news I’ve heard in a while.

Anyway, on to this week’s write-up!

The Twelve Labors of Wonder Woman continue, with various Justice League of America members monitoring her adventures and reporting back on whether they find her worthy to rejoin the JLA after a long absence and bout of amnesia. Unlike the other issues in this story arc, Wonder Woman #218 is split into two separate stories, each with a different Leaguer narrating. But writer Martin Pasko and artist Kurt Schaffenberger are really scraping the bottom of the membership barrel with these twin tales hosted by C-list Leaguers the Red Tornado and the Phantom Stranger.

I’ve said this before, but one thing I love about writer-artist Mike Sekowsky’s non-superpowered mod version of Wonder Woman is the variety of stories he tells with her. In one issue it’s all espionage and Bond villains, then she’s donning yellowface and a machine gun and fighting the Red Army in China, then she’s off to a medieval world to lead a siege and teach them how to make cannons, and then she’s back to the streets of New York, trying to keep a friend from killing a guy. And now, she’s off to a quaint European kingdom to marry a handsome prince! The only problem is, she doesn’t really want to marry the guy and is just standing in because the real bride’s been kidnapped.
