Wonder Woman: The Good, The Gooder, and The Goodest!

 

HERATIC MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy


Amongst DC's hit or miss on enjoyment/quality level of its random 52 pick up, Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang's take on Wonder Woman really is (Athena, forgive the holiday appropriate pun!) the gift that keeps on giving!

Spoilers, bitches!


Not only has Azzarello added some mmph to Wonder Woman's mythos by making her the love child of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, and Zeus, King of the Gods, he has kept alive the wealth of treachery and drama that made Greek tragedy so compelling to begin with. Ok! Magazine woulda' had a freakin' field day! Oh, fret not, puny mortals; we get the drama still - we just mask it as trash such as TMZ and Keeping up with The Kardashians!

It sucks to be an Amazon.

In this issue Diana sports some sweet suede and goes sibling booze bonding with half sister Strife, who is starting to grow on me like a fun to itch rash.

The real bitch slap comes when Hera, Zeus' wife (that's right, bitches - Diana's daddy is a player!), confronts trollop d'jour Queen Hippolyta. She takes her in her bosom, asks her not only how she could do this to her goddess but to another woman. Then, she turns bitch into stone and the rest of the Amazons into a pile of snakes. And, THAT is a damned tragedy! You don't have to watch Dynasty to have an attitude.

 

 


 

Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
