I kinda felt the story was lacking & as I feared, it looks like the contest has been removed from Diana's origin along with the mystical clay origin. She has been neutered of much of what made her unique. :((
Pinocchio, adam, Frankenstein, golems
let's stop pretending the clay origin was actually unique shall we
Thor, Herakles/ Hercules, (God forbid) Xena. This is what Diana has been reduced to. It has been done in other high profile comic already. Part of what made Diana different was that she was a female warrior from a race of females, no male needed to create her. Just a mother, some clay, & the goddesses (plus Hermes). The contest gave her a reason other than being boy crazy/ stir-crazy to leave the island. Now she is the bastard child of Zeus, like so many, who was not happy at home so she jump the first man she saw & hightailed it outta paradise!
