The DC Universe has decided to focus on the third leg of their Holy Trinity. After decades of serving the cause of Superman and then Batman, Wonder Woman will be at the center of DC’s spotlight. Her recent adventures have led her to lead the world’s heroes against the Darkest Knight and the Goddess Perpetua. After Diana defeated the Batman Who Laughs’ fiercest form, she is now on a journey of self-discovery. And that journey has led her to Asgard, the realm of Thor.
Wonder Woman – The New Champion Of Asgard
Diana is going through her own odyssey of sorts within a new DC Multiverse. But her journey through the afterlife did not land her on Mount Olympus. For some enigmatic reason, Wonder Woman was in Asgard, in the land of the Norse Gods. Wonder Woman is a foe worthy of the attention of Thor. Thor Odinson arrives, crackling with rage and thunder, his Mjolnir in hand. What happens next blows everyone’s mind.
But DC’s Thor is not an exact replica of Marvel’s Thor. This version of Thor is a typical Viking Deity that revels in war and combat but is also a patron of wine, fine arts, and of course charming women. Wonder Woman and Thor are obviously polar opposites in terms of personality so they were fated to cross paths one way or another. Thor begins the fight by binding Diana in magical chains conjured by Mjolnir.
The battle seems lost until Wonder Woman mounts another charge. She is trying to enter the Fortress of Valkyries in an effort to heal the World Tree Yggdrasil. Thor leads a platoon of Gods thinking Wonder Woman’s a threat, not a well-wisher. The ensuing events finally help Diana regain her memories after being trapped for an endless amount of time within Valhalla.
As Thor makes a final charge against a now fully awoken Wonder Woman, the latter is quick to disarm the God of Thunder and take his hammer. She later crushed the Mjolnir in her hands like it was a soda can. Thor, now completely helpless, is forced to listen to Diana and realizes the error of his ways. Valhalla is freed from its curse now that the World Tree Yggdrasil is healed.
Who knows what next Diana might be having in store for us. Her quest for truth and justice have led her to defeat a popular marvel superhero pastiche. Maybe DC Comics is getting back at Marvel for their take on the Justice League in Marvel’s Heroes Reborn series?
For Diana, her adventures have just begun.
