For those unfamiliar with the Earth One line of graphic novels, they resemble the imprint of Marvel’s Ultimate Universe in that they reinvent and modernize heroes familiar to 21st century audiences, some heroes. changing more radically than others. The Wonder Woman books offer a rather unusual take on Diana and her world, as they draw heavily on the original Golden Age Wonder Woman comics and the themes of slavery and enslavement that were so prevalent in the world. work of designer William Moulton Marston. The first volume even sparked controversy for its portrayal of Diana being the daughter of Hercules, a choice that even Morrison admitted to having “struggled” with.
“In this particular story, I wanted that tension,” Morrison told IGN in 2016. “I wanted that push and pull, and I wanted Diana to be a little more impure in the sense that, yeah, there’s a little masculinity that Hippolyta originally does just for the reasons that the DNA of Hercules will then destroy women, and there would be no more sons, as Hippolyta said. actually sort of an act of revenge. Diana is used as revenge on the battlefield, which seemed to me a lot more of the sort of thing people could relate to.

There are people who are quite willing to use these techniques, so I kind of wanted to draw attention to that, but, you know, on the Wonder Woman scale where the guy is a supervillain. I wanted to put these paragons of femininity against this threat and see how she copes with it – because even paragons of intelligence and grace I’ve seen real issues with people like that. Here are the techniques. If you see someone using these techniques against you, the warnings should go off. “You can verify IGN’s review of Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 1 and Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 2. DC finally publishes the third volume of Batman: Earth One in 2021, which will introduce a very different version of Two-Face and shed more light on Bruce Wayne’s ties to the Arkham family.
