As mentioned previously, Byrne relocates Diana from Boston to the fictional Gateway City (effectively San Francisco). He also discarded her established supporting cast of Julia and Vanessa Kapatelis and instead replaced them with almost carbon copies in the form of mother and daughter Helena and Cassie Sandsmark, although he had plans for Cassie to become the new “Wonder Girl” down the road. He also introduced a potential new love interest in the form of police officer Mike Schorr, who seemed to again mirror the Perez character Inspector Indelicato.
