    Wonder Woman

    Character » Wonder Woman appears in 8089 issues.

    The Amazon princess, blessed with god-like super abilities, Wonder Woman is one of Earth's most powerful defenders of peace, justice, and equality and a member of the Justice League. She is considered an archetype for many heroines outside of comic book. Her initial origin depicted her as a clay baby brought to life by patron goddess Aphrodite, but in recent years she has been depicted as the daughter of Zeus and Amazon queen Hippolyta.

    Here we have the right and only answer. Literally. I would add maybe Legend Of Wonder Woman and Earth One to the list, but apart from that pretty spot on. Also Earth One should be read after the rest ;)

    @comic_bruh777: All in all it's still kind of messy imo. What I got from rebirth or at least my personal idea is that Post-crisis WW and New-52 WW are the same (aka Rebirth WW) however the Amazons and the Gods of New-52 were lies, false creations made to prevent Diana from returning home and leading her enemies from finding Ares's prison.

    honestly its ok, not great like Rucka's previous run but ok. My only serious criticism is that lack of clarity at the end especially the massive issue of her Origin not being revealed, Rucka posed a question at the beginning of rebirth and either was not allowed to answer it or didn't by choice, I didn't like that. There was no need for Diana to be in a mental hospital and honestly a better twist would be Ares freeing himself from his prison and Diana stopping him in the last three issues. Whether she is sculpted by the clay of Paradise or another offspring of Zeus is still honestly in the air with no actual proof in canon, yet, not until issue 31. She is still powered by the patron Gods and Goddess that much we do know.

    Rucka's first run was brilliant. His second run retconned a lot of the most unsavory changes of the New 52 run, but honestly had lack of focus or clarity IMO. I think it could have been a lot better.
