wonder-woman-2016-39-fight

Wonder Woman #39 isn’t bad, but it’s certainly far from a must-read. The latest issue is heavy on action featuring Wonder Woman squaring off with the murderous new incarnation of Silver Swan. Every panel of our heroine is in battle with the former friend turned crazy super-villain. Or, to put it more appropriately, playing defense and refusing to fight the tormented girl up until the point that the new villain attacks Diana’s brother Jason.

One of the oldest tropes in comic books is hero vs. hero. Be it from a misunderstanding, a villain’s shaninagans, mind-control, temporary insanity, or any number of possible reasons, comic writers love squaring off super-heroes against each other. “The Goddess Must Be Crazy” pits Wonder Woman (Rachel Kimsey) against a possessed Supergirl (Joanne Spracklen), controlled by Felix Faust (Jon Cryer). There’s some nice action here between the Girl of Steel and the Amazon before Dianna discovers a way to free Kara from the control of the evil magician (even if the episode doesn’t stray very far from the basics of such a plot).

Built from the worst foundation possible laid by the disastrous Man of Steel and the trainwreck which was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s a wonder that Justice League is even watchable let alone entertaining. Don’t get me wrong, the latest from “visionary” director Zack Snyder is beset with multiple problems, but thankfully being a dumpster fire isn’t one of them. Despite issues with character, plot, editing, acting, and cinematography, Justice League does produce a flawed yet entertaining film bringing DC heroes together against a common threat. It’s not the follow-up to Wonder Woman DC fans were hoping for, but it’s a fair bit better than I expected from Zack Snyder and company.

“System Error” is a clever idea for an episode that fits well into the time constraints of Justice League Action. Batman (Kevin Conroy) awakes in the Batmobile confused as to how he got there and discovers his other Justice League pals are fighting odd pairings of various super-villains. Discrepancies in the villains behavior and abilities, and the League’s inability to fight back against Parademons, leads the Dark Knight Detective to discover that he, Wonder Woman (Rachel Kimsey), Superman (Jason J. Lewis), Cyborg (Khary Payton), and Booster Gold (Diedrich Bader) are all robots in an elaborate simulation run by Darkseid (Jonathan Adams) who is looking for weaknesses in his enemies. What the master of Apokolips failed to count on was just how good his replicas turned out to be.

Opening with Wonder Woman and Etta Candy fighting off a group of super-villains and bounty hunters (including Cheshire, Plastique, Cat Eye, and Abolith), Wonder Woman #29 eventually reveals the reason for the attack and why someone wants the Amazon, dead or alive.

“Heart of the Amazon” continues with David Messina taking over the artistic duties for Mirka Andolfo. There’s a noticeable change in style between the pair, and I can’t help but feel a bit letdown by the change. Following her friend’s injury, Diana vows to help Etta Candy recover after the government agent is released from the hospital. Still guilty over not being able to protect her friend from harm, Diana’s day isn’t going to get any better when an assassin shows up targeting the Amazon and putting Etta in further danger.
