Can’t say I’m surprised, but I’m still disappointed they’re using that awful New 52 origin, especially since this will be Diana’s first appearance before a global audience.

What could have been…

Yep.

With all we’re expected to accept in comics-based movies, THIS is the one that no one will believe.

Suuuure.

Diana and Artemis being cute amazon kids, well, maybe not so much, but yet somehow… And looks like little Diana keeps emerging in my brain, I’m doomed… also, think I don’t really need to say it, but she’s a good sport.

Soooooo adorable!!!

Last month on Twitter, Benito Cereno issued the challenge to assemble a seven-member, all-female Justice League. He ended up getting a lot of responses and several pretty spiffy drawings as a result, and after much delay, I present mine. I made the decision to draw them out as a team to see how they’d all look together, and yep, that’s a team all right. (Also? Very caucasian and very blue-eyed brunette-y.) I’ve begun referring to them in my head as the Seven Lady Army (or 7LA), and have had a modified version of The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” stuck in my head for two weeks, so I’m glad to finally move past that.
Here’s the line-up:
Wonder Woman - You don’t just put Wonder Woman on an all-female Justice League, you build around her. When Grant Morrison assembled the heavy hitters for his famous run on JLA back in the day, he equated them all to members of the Greek pantheon of Gods. In his league, WW was Hera. In mine, she’s the Zeus.
Big Barda - Another no-brainer pick. Barda is the Ares of the team. I drew a somewhat modified version of what I like to call “Barda’s Battlin’ Buick” gear, scratching an artistic itch I’ve had since I drew Barda in her “Battlin’ Itsy Bitsy Bikini” look a few years ago. 
Black Canary - The street level fighter who can easily hang with the heavy hitters. The Athena of the team, as she was the goddess of law and justice, strategic warfare and strategy.
Zatanna - I briefly considered giving this spot to Traci 13, but she didn’t make as much sense in the team dynamic. In relation to the Pantheon, Zatanna is the Hephaestus, using spells and conjuring like the Greek god forged weapons and tools.
Mary Marvel - She actually gets her abilities from the Gods, so Artemis seems like a good parallel. 
Elasti-Girl - She’s here because I love me some Doom Patrol. An Olympic gold medal athlete-turned-actress, she’s the Hermes of the group.
Sidenote: Look, I anticipate flack for drawing her in high heels, but A) I was keeping with the silver age look, because I love it and B) It makes me laugh that someone that can grow hundreds of feet tall would wear heels on top of it. I did however give her pants/leggings because, come on.
Talia al Ghul - How’s that for a left field choice? I originally had Katana in this spot, but after I shared Cereno’s tweet with my friend Rider, he threw Talia’s name out there. And then it was a done deal. She’s the Hades analog on the team, herself a ruler of an underworld. Can you imagine what sort of global crisis would necessitate Talia joining forces with a bunch of do-gooders like these? And what sort of constant conflicts that would cause? Man alive, someone start writing this hypothetical line-up already.

Not only do I want to read about this team, I REQUIRE the print.
Because Holy Hannah is it gorgeous!!

I just bought my Wonder Woman comic and these were the last two pages. Wonder woman makes me extremely happy.

I miss this sort of wonder woman so much. And this scene is just miles better than the similar one from Justice League: War.

Wonder Woman is (re-)introduced to the rebooted 1980s DC Universe.
After DC Comics rebooted in the 1980s, it published the miniseries Legends to (re-)introduce a lot of its lesser-known (non-Superman, non-Batman) characters. Wonder Woman’s rebooted solo book by George Pérez was just a few months old by the time she appeared in Legends, but here was her first appearance in the wider DC Universe — and apparently one of her first times outside of Themyscira. Guy Gardner (the first to encounter her in Legends) and the public at large don’t even know who she is. She just bursts on the scene and tells everyone to get their act together.
I loved it.
It was treated very much like an introduction to a new character, or at least a new readership for an old character — and it totally worked on me. I had just started reading comics around this time, and I came to DC from the Christopher Reeve Superman movies. I knew who Wonder Woman was, of course — I’d seen Super Friends and read some Justice League back-issues — but this Wonder Woman was powerful, confident, independent, and mysterious. Not to mention John Byrne, one of the biggest superstar artists of the era, was at the top of his game.
At the end of Legends, when the rest of the heroes are patting themselves on the back and doing that whole “Maybe we should form a team” thing, Wonder Woman quietly sneaks away unnoticed.
"Dang," I thought, "Wonder Woman is on a whole other level."

I get a little angry when I hear about someone saying that they hate Wonder Woman or that they think she’s boring. I LOVE Wonder Woman, as a character and as an icon, I probably draw her more than I draw any other superhero. In the comics, animated shows and movies, she’s such an amazing person, intelligent, dignified and elegant, yet warm and approachable. Plus, she’s a brilliant fighter and strategist, who can fight individually and within a group. Not to mention, she’s a diplomat! She can fight a war, but she has the ability to end it before it even begins.
Wonder Woman is awesome. Period.
