Comments

Having killed half of the Amazons, decapitated Diana’s hand, turned her into clay, tortured her, killed her, resurrected her and then finally made her into a Goddess, Byrne finishes his controversial but certainly eventful run on the book, leaving us with a “powered up” Wonder Woman as he had always intended. However, in his wake he had created numerous unnecessary variations of “Wonder Woman” and “Wonder Girl”, and in my personal view had undermined Diana as the true “Wonder Woman” of the DC Universe. His final cover for the book however is at least an effective one.

In the final panel we see Diana back in her Wonder Woman costume, though interestingly not the Byrne adapted version of the costume, which disappeared from the title along with its creator.

Synopsis

The gods of Olympus have decreed that Diana can no longer walk among them as goddess of truth and cast her back down to Earth…but still in possession of her mightier godlike powers.

Donna’s origins are finally resolved and Diana is returned to her rightful role as Wonder Woman.
