Whenever I see Cliff Chiang's work on the cover, I get excited. And then I see the names of the creative team and disappointment fills my very being.
Oh! And don't forget Rob Liefeld. Genius stuff. Amazing. He's on another level than the rest of those guys I mentioned.
Anyway! Quick recap on last issue: Wonder Woman was off searching for Siracca (unless it was spelled differently), one of her demi-god siblings, to help her and Lennox get Zola's baby back. And while that was going on, some weird shit was going down in Antarctica.
Is this guy one of the Titans? Maybe he escaped from N.O.W.H.E.R.E.!
Back in the crypt where Wonder Woman and Siracca are fighting, Siracca decides to tell Wonder Woman a little bit about her childhood. It was a pretty short childhood, as childhoods go. She was a shepherd in Palestine in 1917 when she was visited by her father's wife.
Spoiler Alert: This won't end well.
Apparently Zeus put Siracca back together as best he could. Now she's a head on a half-skeleton body that floats around haunting things. Come on, Siracca. Say, "Thank you, daddy." Even though Wonder Woman can kick anybody's ass in the DCnU, her second best talent making people like her. And that's the talent she uses on the angry little half-girl.
I hope she becomes Wonder Woman's sidekick.
This prophecy is so typical you'd think somebody would have learned how to counter it by now! Except you can't! If you let the child live, it'll grow up to take your throne. If you have the child killed, it will somehow survive and then return to take your throne! You can't fucking beat these things. They're foolproof!
Meanwhile Wonder Woman's half-sister lets Wonder Woman in on why she's needed. She can hear anything said anywhere since she is the wind. She demonstrates by listening to a bunch of commonly said speech bubbles carried to her by the breeze.
100 Bullets is apparently canon in the New 52. And this might be the first time Perry White says, "Great Caeser's Ghost!" in The New 52.
The last couple pages show Highfather telling Orion that the Source of All Knowledge has seen it's own ending which would mean the ending of all time. The threat to its existence has been located on Earth. And that's where Highfather is sending Orion. Next issue: Gods versus Gods versus Gods! And, um, maybe even some more Gods too!
Wonder Woman #14 Rating: No change. I have a pretty good feeling that I figured out what's going on with the throne of Olympus between Apollo and The First Born and the child of Zeus spilling blood to gain the throne plot. I will happily be surprised if it ends up being different though. As for how The New Gods are going to tie in to this plot, I don't know. Maybe they'll just bring their own plot for a few issues which will put the search for Zola's baby on the back burner. Ha ha. I said, "Baby on the back burner."
