Wonder Woman vol. 2 #210

              

WAIT, THIS DOESN’T SHOW JUST HOW AWESOME DIANA IS.

This is from ruckawriter's run on WW (the best ever, imho). Medusa turns one of Diana's employees into stone (Diana is a full-on ambassador as well as superhero) and then challenges Diana to a fight. Diana is skeptical, but Aphrodite pretty much says, “Listen, we're not gonna take this shit from Medusa, you gotta fight her.” So Diana shows up pretty ready, blindfold, armor, all that. But it turns out Medusa has manipulated the event to be televised, so that after she defeats Diana, she can look into the screen and turn all the people watching into stone. 

Just TAKE THIS SHIT IN FOR A HOT SECOND (all images courtesy of scans_daily)

Then the stuff above happens. YES, BITCHES, DIANA—WHO HAS RECENTLY HAD A SWORD RUN THROUGH ONE OF HER KIDNEYS— TAKES ONE OF THE SNAKES SHE CUT OFF MEDUSA’S HEAD WHILE BLINDFOLDED AND SQUIRTS THE POISON IN HER EYES SO SHE IS BLIND SO MEDUSA CAN’T FUCK WITH HER.

Why? BECAUSE SAVING AND AVENGING EVEN ONE MORTAL LIFE IS WORTH HER OWN GODDAMN VISION THAT’S WHY. 

But after that badass “Never?” THIS PHOTO SET LEAVES OUT THE BEST PART. WONDER WOMAN IMMEDIATELY CHOPS OFF MEDUSA’S HEAD. NO HESITATION. NO NEGOTIATION. NO DESTROYING A WHOLE CITY JUST TO BEAT HER UP A LITTLE MORE. CHOP AND DONE.

And then?

DROP THAT MIC, DI.

DROP IT LIKE THE MAGMA-HOT SHIT THAT IT IS. 

To Rucka’s credit, this wasn’t no false-ass sacrifice, either. She stays blind AND STILL SAVES EVERYONE’S ASSES.

How does she get her sight back? She does something for Athena and Athena grants her one boon. So what does our Diana do? Ask for her sight back?

NOPE. SHE ASKS FOR LIFE TO BE RETURNED TO A CHILD KILLED BY MEDUSA.

And Athena was like, “Shit, Wonder Woman, you’re better than all of us, I guess you can have your sight back, too.” And Diana’s pretty much like, “Fine, that’s cool I guess, I was still getting shit done without it.”

THIS IS WHY I HAVE A LOT OF GODDAMN FEELINGS ABOUT WONDER WOMAN.

#why isn’t there a wonder woman movie yet? #oh yeah right sexism

This, along with JLA: A League of One (Christopher Moeller) and The Hiketeia (Greg Ruka), as well as Gail Simone’s amazing run, make me shout “bullshit” whenever DC says a Wonder Woman movie is “too hard.” 

You’ve got fucking AMAZING source material, people.  Use it.

Wonder Woman (2009)

Wonder Woman, KILLING it.  See, THIS is why they can’t make a Wonder Woman movie, because Wonder Woman is not putting up with your bullshit, and they KNOW they’d get ripped to shreds if they did her dirty.

They’re talking about a mother fucking cat

This is glorious

Diana giving Karen pet advice is one of the cutest little comic book moments EVER

If I had Wonder Woman’s powers, talking to cats would totally be one of my favourite parts of having them :D

I love comics that do shit like spend 3+ pages on superheroes being friends and doing friendly things like talking about a cat.

If I were to ever write comics that would be all I would write, no lie.

They’re the CUTEST kind of comics, aren’t they? :)

I love having moments like this in comics too…seeing the heroes being BFF and doing adorable stuff like this together…it was SO sweet :)

She is a superhero that has been a part of my life since I can remember, and it is incredibly gratifying and heartwarming and wonderful that this campaign continues to have a life — even though it might be maybe three or four people that are keeping it alive. [Big laugh.] I love them! I don’t know how realistic it is. Of course I would love to do that. Who wouldn’t in their right mind? And why not? Well, there are all kinds of reasons why not. But yes, it is a fantasy. And it’s a hoot. It’s a hoot that every now and then, all these years go by, and people are still thinking that I could do that; I could make that wonderful and they will come and see it. I can’t even tell you how that feels.

I would 100% go see a Gina Torres Wonder Woman movie. I effing love Gina Torres. [x]

This.  I’d drag everyone I know to that movie.

Wonder Woman - The Hiketeia

^ Truly, this is without a doubt one of my favourite moments in ANY comic, ever <3 

It’s hard to go wrong with Bats getting his angsty ass handed to him in such spectacular fashion.

TRUTH <3 

Wonder Woman smacking him down and telling him to STAY down is something that makes me smile :D

I have used this book to get three generations of student workers into comics.  It is consistently on any list of recommended graphic novels that I put out, and I own two copies myself - one to loan and one that’s mine.  And I don’t regret it for a second.
