Comments

Hippolyta wears a revised version of the famous red blur and gold costume, which quite effectively evokes the Golden Age version of the famous red, blue and gold outfit with the Eagle motif on the bustier and a return to a more traditional skirt. Another nice cover from Garcia Lopez incorporating the book’s new logo, cleverly changed to evoke the Golden Age lettering style.

Synopsis

As a penance for her role in weakening Diana and causing her death at the hands of Neron, as well as setting up Artemis to be the “Wonder Woman” resulting in her death too, Hippolyta takes up the mantle of “Wonder Woman”.

Her debut missions sees her taking on the turn-of-the-century supercomputer, Egg Fu, who is revealed to be more than a mere carnival attraction! It’s in fact a product of New Genesis technology, with a deadly purpose that threatens the lives of Artemis and Donna Troy!
