New writer Eric Luke starts his run on the title and immediately undoes John Byrne’s work of “powering up” Diana by stripping her of her Goddess powers! He also introduces the concept of Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman forming being a “Trinity” of heroes, each representing different facets of heroism .

We also see new cover artist Adam Hughes begin a lengthy run on “Wonder Woman” with some striking, colourful covers with, all be it on occasions, an over emphasis on the T&A appeal of the character! Still, Hughes certainly knows how to draw a very sexy Diana as we see a return to a costume more in keeping with the George Perez version! Oddly though, for an artists famed for depicting attractive women, he insisted on depicting Diana with rather unattractive looking baggy boots throughout his entire stint on the title!

Synopsis

Diana decides she has become too detached from the mortals she protects in Man’s World and decides to renounce her Goddess powers, which are duly stripped from her by the Olympian Gods.
