LOL!, you know I complete forgot yesterday was Thanksgiving and didn't get to finish writing it. I'm working on it now though, it involves some golden age ideas and Ares.

The Swan’s Song

Characters: Silver Swan (SS), Wonder Woman (WW), Ares, Veronica Cale, Poison Squad (PS), Dr.Cyber, Deep Six (DS)

So, our story begins with Veronica Cale basically buying Silver Swan from whereever she was put into in the first place. SS gets transported to a secret location Cale set up for Dr.Cyber to work. She’s being escorted by PS in high tech military grade planes. While this is happening, WW is busy saving her city, Gateway city, from an attack from the Deep Six. (since they were so well used in Robinson’s run, I figure I just make them WW villains). So, the DS were stranded on earth and locked away from Apocalypse after Darkseid left them after their failure in defeating both WW or her Brother (I still hate saying/writing that). WW make pretty quick work of them; she punches Kurin to the moon with a back hand, she takes down 3 others (Trok, Gole, Jaffar) at the same time using her H2H skill, she stops Slig from turning people to fish/human hybrids using her tiara throw, and Shaligo gets lassoed from the sky and slammed down to the ground when he tries to get up WW piledrives him. She lasso’s them all up and takes them to a maximum ARGUS security prison.

Next, Dr.Cyber has SS hooked up to a massive machine working on improving SS’s already advanced cybernetic body. Cale walks in and Swan exchanges a few words. Swan yells at Cale demanding to know why she’s here, Cale says it’s to settle a score. That’s not enough for Swan and starts trying to break free only to realize that she can’t move any of her limbs. Cale goes up to her and explains that Cyber has total control over SS’s body, that she isn’t human anymore, that’s she’s a product that Cale bought and is planning to use. Swan looks defeated and asks what score Cale is settling, Cale replies with “thought you would know, you were a big fan of her” Swan looks up knowing its WW. From that moment on SS become a lot more cooperative, Cale is happy and informs Cyber to begin working to improve her sonic scream. Swan smiles. A few days pass and Cyber is done with all her modifications, she explains them to SS; SS is now stronger, tougher, a lot faster, and posses’ detachable feathers on her wings that she can send out like a volley of remote-controlled torpedo arrows. The metal on her body is now sleeker and more durable. Her sonic scream is 100x more powerful then what to was. Swan is delighted in all these changes. Cale informs her to go a test them out on WW. SS flies off at light speed to where Cale informed her that WW would be.

In Greece, WW is busy dealing with Poison Squad attempting to steal a priceless ancient artifact from a museum. It’s all a ruse of course, when SS slams down behind Diana and tries to use her sonic scream. WW blocks it but is taken back by its new power wondering what happened in the time after they last fought. Swan blitzes Diana at faster then light speeds while Diana was taken back from SS’s scream, Diana is further shocked at Swan’s new speed. WW grabs SS as she is being blitzed, turns and slams Swan to the ground stopping the blitz and landing on her feet. Its clear Swan has been amped, and Diana doesn’t really want to hurt her, so she immediately goes on the defensive. Swan tries blitzing WW again, but Diana is ready and slams her gauntlets together creating the concussive blast from the movie knocking Swan away, back outside. Diana flies out the building only to be met with a few dozen lightspeed metal feathers flying right at her, she blocks all of them and watches them zoom back to Swan’s wings. Swan prepares another sonic scream but Diana lasso’s her before her voice could travel out and pulls SS towards her. Diana round house kicks her from the air to the ground, SS blitzes up at faster then light speeds sending herself and Diana into the upper atmosphere where Diana stops her blitz by pushing back against Swan. They have a dog fight in the sky, Swan moving insanely fast in all directions trying to cut Diana open. WW blocks most of them but Swan gets like two slight hits, WW grabs Swan on the last attack kneeing her in the gut then elbowing her in the throat. Cyber gets worried that the amp wasn’t enough, and calls Swan off, SS doesn’t listen. She thinks she can win, but Cyber can see clearly that Diana really isn’t going all out and orders SS to retreat explaining that Diana is going to win, it doesn’t hit Swan until Diana literally does and where SS starts to worry. Cyber anticipated this and causes a massive energy explosion from Swan’s core, it was apparently the equivalent of having a few dozen nukes explode in your face. Diana is taken back a bit, not really injured just trying to figure out where SS when. Diana flies off searching for her.

However Silver Swan stayed in Greece and found herself on an ancient temple. She cursed Cale, Dr.Cyber, WW, the Gods, and even the temple itself. She screamed why she could never beat her, why she could never make Diana feel the way she felt. Little did SS know that this temple once belonged to Ares and he could hear everything Swan said. So, he gives her a hand literally, he reaches down from Olympus as a massive armored hand appears in front of Swan, she looks up to see Ares (he’s huge like covers the whole space, there is that pinkish/orangeish godly Olympus clouds behind him) she gets on his hand as he literally brings her to Olympus. Ares figures that this girl is related to him somehow. That someone this extra had a little bit of him with her. Low and behold, turns out she was his blood. One of Vanessa’s ancient ancestors was a child of Ares. So, Ares felt a little pity for Swan. Deciding that Vanessa’s hatred for Diana was malleable, Ares blessed SS with immense godly power. Swan was repaired, her body as good as new and it wasn’t just advance cybernetics that she used, the power of the God of War flowed through her. Swan flew through the sky, praising her new found relative and flew to Athens causing massive destruction to bring Diana’s attention. Diana sees the flames and flies over at faster then light speeds, seeing Swan overhead. She flies over to Vanessa and senses the power of Ares flowing through her. She asks how Vanessa could make a pack with the Deceiver and Vanessa replies the same way Diana makes a pack with the other gods/goddesses. Diana tries to explain that its not the same, that Ares is different. Vanessa knows its different, its Family by blood. Diana in shock, gets hit by Swan’s new god amped scream. It sends her flying into a mountain range, Swan follows and screams again while Diana is down, her scream shatters the mountains nearby. Diana tanks it and blitzes Swan aiming at her neck, Swan’s claws cut Diana at her arms forcing her off. Diana realizes that Swan’s attacks are fully magically amped allowing SS to cut her unlike before. The fight continues as Ares observes from Olympus as both Athena’s champion and city are being destroyed. Swan send out her metal feathers, Diana clangs her gauntlets sending the feathers back, Swan dodges them with the finesse of a ballerina. The feather return to Swan as she shields herself with her wings from a drop kick from Diana. The kick sends Swan into the streets of Athens, as SS tries to get up Diana blitzes her hitting Swan over a hundred times, Ares is looks displeased. Slowing taking the power away from Swan, she realizes this and flees. Diana would chase her, but the people of Athens need her help more right now. Swan, now far away from WW, prays to Ares and asks why he has forsaken her? Why did he take the power from her? Ares tells her that this blessing is not permanent, that she can only hold this power if she worships him and only him, and that the only way to keep it forever is to kill WW. A task she has already shown that she will never be able to do.

So, Swan remains as a servant to Ares. Working for others, but always under his Guidance.

@masterwitcher88: I like it, I love the idea of Silver Swan shooting a volley of remote-controlled blades off her wings sort of like Archangel / Konan, that’s really neat. SS should be subliminal though, like way slower than that imo, Cheetah is Wonder Woman’s swiftest enemy and if I had it my way, she’d be the fastest sprinter in the DC universe, the apex predator

I felt like I was going over board on her speed considering Dian has Cheetah, but I thought it was fine since the major speed boost in the end came from a god amp from Ares. I'd change her regular speed to just under light speed, like after Cyber improves her.

I kind of want Dr.Cyber to be her personal Ultron mixed with Aria from killer instinct, like she can copy and improve the powers of people she is fighting (minus magic users like Fate or Zee), has energy beams and canons, etc.... but I want her personality more like soundwave from transformers.

@masterwitcher88: I want Cyber to fuse with Veronica just because I want Dr.Cyber to be an actual woman in a warsuit made from stolen Amazonium. Basically they would inhabit Veronica's body like somebody with split-personality disorder, sort of like in the movie Upgrade but where the AI is not in charge, Veronica is in control

@masterwitcher88: This is really good. I have two comments though:

1] I would not have SS gain that much speed just from cybernetics itself or just by science in general. If it was possible and Cale found a way to manufacture it then that itself makes a room for a whole another story arc in itself. So I would have Cale find some magical artifact , one of a kind that she can only use on one subject.

2] In the second part of the story, I would add a line or two where Diana tries to take the fight away from the city. For eg Diana gets hit by SS couple of times on purpose which makes her confident that she can take down Diana only to find out that she was doing it on purpose to lead her away from the city.

Overall I really liked the action sequences you have described. Now, if only we had someone to draw them.

Agreed with your first point. I'd bring her speed down to just under light speed with the cybernetics.

My ideal artist for any WW story is Russel Dauterman or Ivan Reis.

These are just my thoughts on what WW:84 could or should be. It's not as detailed as most of the posts on here but I think it's kind of interesting.

Ok. So Wonder Woman still works with the British military in 1980s. There is a lot of homophobia and the aids epidemic is at its peak. One of the first action scenes involves WW saving pro-gay protesters and in the crowd, there's a young protestor called Barbara Ann Minerva.

Barbara goes on to become one of wonder woman's biggest fans. As a result, she gets into Greek mythology and becomes an archeologist. Fast forward years later, she gets into a same sex relationship and she is still a social justice activist. Her lover/ partner gets sick. She looks for help but no one is interested in helping one of "them" (gay people). Eventually her lover dies a slow and painful death and Barbara never leaves her side. But before she died Barbara delved into research as she searches for a cure. She travelled and tested a bunch of herbs but ultimately failed. In pain and alone, she blames the system and the people in power (rightfully so). Circe eventually appears to her and tells her about a powerful artifact that could give her the power to avenge her love and people like her.

She then goes to Africa and finds the cheetah tribe. She interrupts a ritual and gains the power she was searching for. However she was transformed into a cheetah-human hybrid. She then gets angry and slaughters the entire tribe in a brutal fight scene. She then gets hungry and realises she craves human flesh. After feeding she jumps and dashes back to make the government pay.

The military tracks her movements and alerts WW. When cheetah enters the city, she encounters military. Multiple soldiers shoot at her. Cheetah takes them down with agility and flexibility. Then a gun goes off close to her and she realises the bullet is practically frozen. She then realised she has super speed. The tanks fire as she punches the tank shells into submission. Diana then arrives on the scene. Cheetah sees Diana and says they should work together to kill those in power. Diana tells her there's another way but Cheetah attacks (she saw this as a sign of betrayal from her idol). She tells Diana that she doesn't know what it's like to be powerless and thus doesn't know how to use power. She tells the military to stand back. She and Cheetah then charge at each other. The fight would have winter soldier level hand to hand choreography but with Man of Steel power levels. Then cheetah starts using her speed and Diana can barely see her coming. She moves so fast she causes sonic booms while running. Cheetah keeps cutting up Wonder woman but she remains fighting thanks to her pain tolerance and healing factor. Cheetah then remembers that Diana isn't the enemy and leaves.

As she heals up she receives a pep talk from a resurrected Steve. The military tells Diana that they did research and traced Barbara's movements leading up to her transformation. They say they found a survivor of the tribe cheetah slaughtered. The survivor tells Diana that the Cheetah curse enhanced negative emotions. As Diana trains she remembers her lessons with Antiope. Antiope taught her while she was younger that she relies to much on her sight instead of her other senses. She was taught to master her senses and analyse the muscle movements of her opponent.

Cheetah then attacks the white house and Diana shows up. They fight and at first it seems like cheetah is winning then Diana adjusts her stance and closes her eyes. Cheetah attacks but WW parrys the attack and performs a suplex creating a large crater in the ground. The fight then changes as Diana blocks and counters every attack. Then Diana explains how she can predict a faster opponent's movements through the changes in air pressure. She then parrys and punches Cheetah so hard it sends her out of the city into a unpopulated area after the military tells her they cleared an area a few miles away. After fighting for a while longer, Diana tells her she can't win and gives her a speech about how they can fix the system without blood shed. She tells her to take her hand and they could work together. Cheetah remembers how Diana saved her and cared for her when she felt alone. She moves forward to hold Diana's hand but then she changes her mind and runs away.

Circe is infuriated and decides to kill Diana on her own. The fight is large in scale. Diana absorbs Circe's energy attacks. While she dashes towards Circe but Circe keeps teleporting. Circe then pins Diana down by increasing the force of gravity on her. But slowly she stands as Circe is shocked as to how Diana could move with millions of tons of force acting upon her. She charges at Circe but Circe nukes her with a fire ball hotter than the sun's core. While it stings though Diana pushes through and takes down Circe. Right when Diana thinks she has won, Circe teleports and creates a black hole. Diana struggles for a bit then realises she needs to stop holding back. Her eyes glow and she dashes forward at Circe with speed and power she had never seen before. Diana explains how she'd always been holding back and that ever since she defeated Ares she has had a lot more power than ever before. She defeats Circe and over the years she continues the search for Cheetah. She also goes to the UN and talks about gay rights and equality.

I mostly focused on the basic plot. The side plot would be the rescue of Steve Trevor (years earlier) which would involve Circe and Maxwell Lord I (as her lover). Diana tricks Circe somehow and ends up bringing Steve Trevor back from the underworld leaving Circe with a grudge. Which leads to her manipulating Barbara years later.

These are just my theories mixed with rumours mixed with hopes. It's not perfect nor is it detailed enough but it is the "backbone" of what I'd like to see.

Concept: Wonder Woman's Odyssey

14-15 issues

Diana sets off on a journey from Themyscira to retrieve the 9 tombs of the lost Queens. When the universe began to reset the history of the Amazons was broken. Hippolyta 10th Queen of the Amazons, send her daughter Diana on a Odyssey to bring the Lost Queens back from their burial grounds around the old world and return them to a sacred resting place near the Palace. On this Odyssey Diana encounters Gods and Monsters trying to stop or kill her, whichever comes to their minds first.

  • Diana is given a flying ship to place the coffins in and bring them back (Imagine an ancient Greek warship made from Amazonium that can fly with nanofiber sails, laser cannons where the rowers would be, and can travel in space)
  • She teams up with Donna Troy in it and I will attempt to give her a definitive origin (It wont last)
  • She also teams up with the Justice League Dark and Constantine (or Dr. Fate, haven't decided yet)
  • Amazons in space will return
  • Diana fights against Doomsday(first issue), Black Adam, Zod and His group + Eradicator, Zara, Typhon father of All monsters, Herakles, and more
  • We learn the History of the Amazons along with Diana
  • Diana begins to learn more of her Witch-Mode as she still has it
  • A massive change for her at the end of the story

Names for the Queens I Got (in order):

  1. Lysippe the Founder: Founded the First Themyscira (before Herakles and his army destroyed it), created the no men rule, was a general and expert in using cavalry. Her story, Lycippe had a son named Tanais who was completely devoted to war and scorned marriage. Though this was totally normal in Amazon society, Aphrodite was none too pleased and cursed him with falling in love with his own mother. Unable to deal with this, he threw himself into a river and drowned. Lycippe buried her pain in work. She built the Amazon capital city Themiscrya, consolidating the Amazon Nation and building lots of temples to Artemis (NOT Aphrodite). She established the policies that the Amazons are known for, and she was a very cool woman.
    1. She was granted 10% of Zeus's Lightning from Hecate as a symbol of her royal power. Hephaestus made the Tiara, Gauntlets, and Lasso for her as gifts from the Gods/Goddess that supported the Amazons. These were past down from Generation to Generation (now Diana has them.)
  2. Marpesia the Conquer: Daughter of Lysippe, Her story, Marpesia was one of the cool and important military Queens who made a name (and an empire) for the Amazons. On her own she took over Thrace and Syria and later she teamed up with Hippo (an other Amazon general) and they conquered Ephesus and Cyrene and basically anything that was in their way up until the Aegean Sea. She should have quit then, but an uprising in conquered land called her back to battle and she died fighting. She had a daughter named Orithia.
  3. Orithia the Diplomat: She was the first Queen to begin working with the outside world. Her story, She created an alliance with the King of Sythia who sent his son with and army and together they destroyed the Asian barbarians who killed her mother.
  4. Alcippe the Rider: Her name means "powerful mare". Daughter of Orithia. She lead the Amazons during a time of peace and was known for her horse riding skills and interest in Amazonium.
  5. Prothoe the Creator: Daughter of Alcippe. She improved on her mothers Amazonium research bringing Themyscira to a technological advance age. She combined the advance tech with Greco-Roman architecture. Improved the whole city and its army. Creating swords, shields, spears, and bows using Amazonium. The bows would use hard light energy (like green lantern blasts) for arrows. She would also see to the creation of flying robot unicorns that shoot lasers from their wings, massive robotic war elephants with laser guns on their tusks and a mace on their trunk, even the creation of robotic versions of the mythical creature, Chimera.
  6. Andromache the Monster Carver: Daughter of Prothoe. She started the 200 year war with the Atlanteans. After a betrayal/broken promise from an Atlantean King, Andromache launched the Amazon army into attacking an Atlantean outpost starting the war. She known as the Monster Carver because she was not only slaying the Atlanteans in her path but the sea monsters their king was summoning.
  7. Alkaia the Prodigy: Daughter of Andromache. Her name means "mighty one". She ended the 200 year war with the Atlanteans. She and two other amazons disguised themselves as members of the Atlantean royal guard and infiltrated the Atlantean Capital. Alkaia plotted a coup from the inside working with an advisor who to the Atlantean throne. She started by kidnapping all the generals in the Atlantean army, then overthrowing the King, finally when the advisor attempted to double cross her, she had already turned the royal guard against him. Literally just like Azula's coup in Ba Sing Se.
  8. Unknown (still working on it)
  9. Otrera the Great Mother: She's more known for her children then herself. She is the mother of Antiope of Hippolyta. Ares the God of War is the father.
  10. Hippolyta the Unbreakable and Antiope the Confronting Moon: Duel queens. We all know the Perez Origin Story I hope? Cause that's the one I'm using for this. With some Changes.
    1. Ares gave her the Royal Belt. It allows her to teleport to other dimensions or places. Its a symbol of Amazon royalty and power that was stolen by Herakles. Diana will get it back.

Yea, I haven't even got a script summary like my other story ideas. You'll notice I'm using the queens as foot note for who Diana teams up with or not or who she'll be fighting. I was thinking some of the queens would have challenges in their tombs or some would have beautiful sanctuaries under the surface.

The Idea behind the flying ship is to show that the Amazons have a navy to transport troops and materials around. Like in the past. Also, in my run Diana gave the invisible jet to Steve. He needs it more during his missions for ARGUS ;)

Hippolyta's Story and How the Amazons went to Paradise Island

This is really awesome! Are you planning on developing this into a full fledged story or just the concept for now? Either way this sounds pretty cool.

I want to make it my first legit comic script once I confidently know I can write it. As is stands, its just a concept.

First issue begins in medias res, with Diana fighting Doomsday in Gateway City. She beats him using her equipment (like how its suppose to be) and gets called to Themyscira by her mother. Hippolyta explains to Diana her mission to bring back the queens and we officially start on issue two.

The first queen's tomb is literally like a Tomb Raider mission. Its hidden underground, but in like a big beautiful cavern. With challenges to get through.

The second and third queens she'd have to go through Black Adam because they are buried near (or in) his territory. We also get some hints about a Cult of the Crimson Flame.

The fourth queen she'll get as whatever issue we are at starts and realizes she has to got to space for the Fifth queen. This leads her to Amazons in Space and has a run in with Zod and his ilk near "New Krypton" the one with two yellow suns. She has to intervene to free some captured amazons. It starts as a diplomatic mission, but Zod turns on her. Zod, Ursa, and Eradicator team up on her; it doesn't end well for them. (Part of me wishes I could introduce Diana's son before this so Zod's son and her son can fight, I'd rather not have Diana beat up a child)

The sixth queen Diana teams up with Donna as they go into a magic realm (remember the divine world idea I had with all the mythic creatures and tribes exist? this is the one) Donna learns her true origin and Diana realizes that she might have to face against Typhon. Donna asks to stay a help her and Diana agrees.

The seventh queen is actually guarded by Typhon near Mt. Etna, in the underworld. The unique thing about the underworld is that its literally a whole universe, just with 3 layers. Diana and Donna enlist the aid of JL: Dark and they all prepare to fight Typhon. This is one of those 2 issue long fights with a giant monster. We get a quick background for who Typhon is/what he looks like/his fight with Zeus and Athena/how powerful he is. Swamp Thing uses his powers to become as big as Typhon and begins fighting him in like a lock. Diana and Donna are running Defense with Zatanna casting spells for offense. Diana uses Zeus's Lighting and her heavy axe to damage Typhon as well. The fight ends with Zatanna down being looked after by Detective Chimp and Diana reunlocking her Witch Form to kill Typhon.

The eight queen is back on earth. Diana and Donna begin search around the area. This queen was more of a mystery (mainly because I don't know what to do with her). Remember that Cult talk back with Black Adam? this is that, turns out a new cult run by a certain Zara is taking roots. Diana can't really fight a religion so she more or less has to deal with fanatics and worshipers of Zara until she get to her. (I'm using my origin for Zara on this one, from the first post in this thread). To get to the Tomb, Diana needs to get past Zara and the only way Zara will let her is with a fight. Diana at first refuses wanting a peaceful option, but Zara wants to prove herself a Goddess.

The ninth queen involves a duel with Herakles. Strife, has been watching Diana since Donna joined, all this time and she's been the one making things a bit difficult for them. She "convinces" Herakles to mess with Diana. Rub in the fact that Herakles conquered the Amazons and how easy it was. Diana knows the truth so she's not amused. Just before she gets the tomb Herakles attacks her. He brags about "sleeping" with Diana's mother and wonders how she will be. Diana enraged having come so far beats the ever living #%@* out of him. And she takes the Belt of Hippolyta back. Basically the last few issues is this built up. Its not suddenly super misogynistic in one issue.

Diana returns home, the queens are put in their new resting place, and there is a massive change for Diana's life.

This is really awesome! Are you planning on developing this into a full fledged story or just the concept for now? Either way this sounds pretty cool.

I want to make it my first legit comic script once I confidently know I can write it. As is stands, its just a concept.

First issue begins in medias res, with Diana fighting Doomsday in Gateway City. She beats him using her equipment (like how its suppose to be) and gets called to Themyscira by her mother. Hippolyta explains to Diana her mission to bring back the queens and we officially start on issue two.

The first queen's tomb is literally like a Tomb Raider mission. Its hidden underground, but in like a big beautiful cavern. With challenges to get through.

The second and third queens she'd have to go through Black Adam because they are buried near (or in) his territory. We also get some hints about a Cult of the Crimson Flame.

The fourth queen she'll get as whatever issue we are at starts and realizes she has to got to space for the Fifth queen. This leads her to Amazons in Space and has a run in with Zod and his ilk near "New Krypton" the one with two yellow suns. She has to intervene to free some captured amazons. It starts as a diplomatic mission, but Zod turns on her. Zod, Ursa, and Eradicator team up on her; it doesn't end well for them. (Part of me wishes I could introduce Diana's son before this so Zod's son and her son can fight, I'd rather not have Diana beat up a child)

The sixth queen Diana teams up with Donna as they go into a magic realm (remember the divine world idea I had with all the mythic creatures and tribes exist? this is the one) Donna learns her true origin and Diana realizes that she might have to face against Typhon. Donna asks to stay a help her and Diana agrees.

Sounds very intriguing. You'll need to create interesting backstories to explain why the tombs of these queens are in such scattered and mystical locations. This looks like a very good start though. Definitely interested to see where this goes.

@masterwitcher88: This is very good especially if it's an else worlds story as I have mixed feelings about Themyscira having had multiple Queens. Cause it goes against the whole immortality thing.

I like the inclusion of the JLD and especially Donna Troy. I feel for Wonder woman to be a major player, her supporting characters ("the Wonder family") need a boost in popularity.

I like most of the villains/ challenges she faces. With the right dialogue, good fights and a solid back story (for Donna especially ), it would be an amazing ark.

I admit I liked it when Donna was the offspring of a Titan.

Well, the Amazons aren't "immortal" like the Gods. They are ageless, they cant be killed by old age or illness. However, they can be killed be it in battle or any other means.

I like the inclusion of the JLD and especially Donna Troy. I feel for Wonder woman to be a major player, her supporting characters ("the Wonder family") need a boost in popularity.

I really REALLY want to cement Diana in the magic side of DC and what better way then to keep the JLD as reoccurring allies. Donna works perfectly as the "badass twin sister", Cassie as "the fun teenage sidekick", and I'd have Diana have a son with Steve (as I've stated many a times) to round it all out.

I like most of the villains/ challenges she faces. With the right dialogue, good fights and a solid back story (for Donna especially ), it would be an amazing ark.

Dialogue...right...that's the tough part.

My fights are all 10/10, you may read them on my other story ideas and ask me questions about specific ones if you'd like.

Donna's origin is great, simple, and easy to remember.

I admit I liked it when Donna was the offspring of a Titan.

My Donna is a full fledged Goddess, like her twin sister.(hint, hint)

@masterwitcher88: Yea I'd like for that to me emphasised in the series (that they were killed).

Yea!!! The magic thing would be awesome. What do we have to do for DC to do it? How many issues should we buy? I want Diana to have magic the same way Supes has the sun, Flash has the speed force and Aquaman kind of has water. I don't want her to overshadow Zatana but I want her to have the means to boost her stats when necessary.

Yea. I loved a fight you did earlier. You have that locked down. Dialogue is hard indeed. You want something that sounds "heroic" but not cliché, something "fresh" but not trying too hard etc.

BTW would your Donna be like a "New" Nubia?

Hehe I'm good with that origin.

Most of them died in battle. Others, more mysteriously. Leaves us some more to work with.

I do LOVE that witch mode over the god mode.

Keep buying JLD. Make DC hear you on twitter and other places that you enjoy Diana in JLD and not to replace or get rid of her.

I want Diana to have magic the same way Supes has the sun, Flash has the speed force and Aquaman kind of has water. I don't want her to overshadow Zatana but I want her to have the means to boost her stats when necessary.

While I'm sure Diana understands magic as someone who studies it. She can't use it outside of her Witch Mode, think of it as her Avatar State for simplicity. All that Power, but only when you most need it. Obviously she'll have control over it and everything. I mean, she was almost on par with Dr.Fate in that form, he didn't even want to face her.

Yea. I loved a fight you did earlier. You have that locked down.

Thanks! which one, I'm curious.

Dialogue is hard indeed. You want something that sounds "heroic" but not cliché, something "fresh" but not trying too hard etc.

I can tell, just from common sense, not to over explain something or say the same thing 1000 times over creating more dialogue then there needs to be. If there is a history lesson that needs to be told, I'd ask for a different style of art or color to show that. I'd like her to have inter thoughts analyzing her opponents moves, telling us how powerful they are, etc...

My style, in my mind, is like a combination of Avatar: The Last Airbender, Steven Universe, Witcher, God Of War (new one), and the old myths with some added humor like Overly Sarcastic Productions.

I've NEVER written script before and I don't really know what to do or how to start. I would feel a lot more comfortable taking a class before hand. There's this Master Class with Neil Gaiman that I want to see, but I have no notion on how much it costs and really I want a more hands on experience with an instructor viewing my work.

BTW would your Donna be like a "New" Nubia?

Basically. Nubia becomes a powerful Amazon, specifically she becomes Captain of the Royal Guard.

Hehe I'm good with that origin.

Donna is 100% Diana's twin. She has the same stats too Strength, Speed, Durability; everything but magic and her equipment. Donna has a long sword (like a knight) and a chakram (reference to Xena). Made by Hephaestus, both are indestructible, can cut anything, and can use different elements of the Gods (think Sunlight of Apollo, Moonlight of Artemis, etc...)

She's made from clay at the same time as Diana too, but given to the Gods per their request. Which would make Donna the same age as Diana, 3000+ years old. Donna was to be the second line of defense against Ares/Dooms Doorway, should Diana fail. Donna trained with Chiron the Great Teacher; who trained Herakles, Achilles, and Ajax. She lost her memory somewhere down the line and found her self in the real world.

@masterwitcher88: I'm not sure which I prefer, god mode or Witch mode. But as of now I'd go for the Witch mode because it was a huge boost that gave Diana new abilities. We never really got to see much from her god mode. it mostly just boosted her stats.

Yea. I already understand how it works. Basically in the same way her god mode did. I was just saying that she should have the option of getting a boost in power just like a lot of the other leaguers do. I'd like for her to have difficulty controlling it or at least a giving it a huge downside to explain why she avoids using it. Eg she risks resurrecting Hecate or something

Nice to see you're taking this writing thing really seriously. I think it's important to have reasonable fans of characters write them. I'd love to see Diana analysing her opponents fighting styles, strengths and weaknesses etc. It's what I expected from her Divine Wisdom (which she practically never uses).

I don't watch Steven Universe but I'm on board with everything else you mentioned. I think they're a very good combo for writing a great Wonder Woman story.

That's an interesting origin for Donna. I'm glad to see Donna has different weaponry. At this point I don't want any more spoilers cause I want to read it all once it comes out.
