Diana’s new costume was designed by cover artist Brian Bolland and had affectionately become known over the years as the “Biker” outfit. She also sported a new, shorter hair style although it would later be revealed that she in fact wore a wig as part of giving herself a new “identity”.

Synopsis

The contest is over and Artemis is the new Wonder Woman. She receives The Gauntlet of Atlas and the Sandals of Hermes to give her abilities like those of Diana. Diana meanwhile, confronts her mother Hippolyta, about the visions she been seeing. She tells her mother that she no longer trusts her. Diana asks her if Herakles is her father but then says she wouldn’t believe Hippolyta whatever the answer is.

During her first action as Wonder Woman, Artemis breaks up a mob fight between The White Magician and Julianna Sazia’s goons, who have been amped to metahuman levels. A large rock creature emerges from the ground but it’s crushed by Diana in her new costume before it can really do anything.

Julia is in the hospital paralysed and tells Diana they might cut her insurance. Donna Milton then visits with Etta. Donna is having trouble paying her rent so Diana has apparently been paying it for her.

Meanwhile a couple of PR guys give Artemis a big apartment with lots of fancy equipment. They tell her not to worry about what they will get out of it. Artemis then speaks at a press conference and states that her first priority will be to end the violence that scars society.

Wonder Woman visits Micah and finds two thugs beating him for information. They taunt her by saying she is an Amazon and violence is against her nature. They assume that they they will just be able to walk right out of there. But she tells them they have the wrong idea about her and then beats them both pretty bad.

Hawkman flies in afterwards and says he could use her help with some undercover work. She agrees but wants to get Micah to a hospital first.

Frustrated that she can’t help all of her friends with their various financial problems Diana agrees to work with him as a P.I. under certain conditions. Everything they make will be split 50/50 and her friend Donna Milton will be their lawyer.
