    Genocide last edited by Symlen on 07/17/21 10:14PM View full history


    Brought to life by some of the world's darkest minds, an unknown persona guided mad scientists, such as Dr. Ivo, to acquire ashen remains from certain sites of some of the worst acts of manslaughter in the world's history. They then used this dust and an unknown power source to create and animate a golem, calling itself Genocide. Setting it's sights on Wonder Woman, with her and the amazons destruction their ultimate goal, they set their creation loose.

    Travelling to Diana's city, Genocide began rampaging through a shopping center. Her adversary was sent with a D.E.O. team to respond to the disturbance. What she found was Genocide with a number of prisoners held in the center of the shopping center, realizing the severity of the threat she quickly transformed into her Wonder Woman persona to face the creature. Genocide fought against Diana fiercely, testing her to her very limits. During the course of the battle Diana realized that the golem she faced was powered by a God. While she dealt with that knowledge, Genocide took the offensive, attacking Diana with all it's might. As the fighting progressed Genocide began bringing Wonder Woman to the edge of her abilities, pushing her beyond it. Stopping to grab one of the hostages she held, Genocide demanded that the Amazon get on her knee's.

    Diana complied, questioning why she had been ordered to do so. Genocide calmy replied for the view, and murdered the woman she had grabbed. Diana attacked in a rage, yet even that wasn't enough. Genocide began to feed off of Diana's rage, using it to paralyze the princess and began to beat Diana brutally. Genocide was able to completely overpowering Diana, leaving her tied (almost crucified) to a cement slab, and taking Wonder Woman's lasso as her own.


    The character of Genocide was created for use in DC Comics by Gail Simone. Her first appearance is in Wonder Woman #26, released in January, 2009, and her death comes in Wonder Woman #34, released in September, 2009.

The explosion can not only destroy nearby solid material and people, but also leaves survivors with a backlash of such negative emotion that they do not think or act rationally.
