wonder woman new 52 issue18

#1 Edited by gokuwarrior (4368 posts) - - Show Bio

i have read the issue,and i have to say it was better than the previous issues,the core of the story seems to be getting somewhere,and if arazzello said the true and this arc is about to end then that's a sight,i'm not that into this new direction of wonder woman yet,but things seem to get better,and i hope so,it's already a good thing to have some action after so many issues where nothing happended.

however i think there were some inconsistencies,maybe you can help me to understand this,i think that hermes was more powerful than before,because on the first issue he struggled with 2 monsters that diana defeated with ease,then he lost easely in the fight with apolo/artemis,he struggled a lot against artemis,and diana defeated artemis easely by taking off her bracelets,but on issue 18,hermes was a much better fighter and he did a much better use of his super speed,to the point that it seemed he was going to beat diana,and i wonder,did he have an upgrade?,it was just an inconsistency?,and why didn't diana use her super speed?,he said she can't beat him in speed,but diana didn't use her super speed at all,and i saw her using super speed many times in JL,against supergirl,and a few times on her own title,so what happended?,she was holding back because she didn't want to hurt hermes?,that's the only thing that comes to my mind,do you have other explanation?.

@gokuwarrior: will my guess he was faking how weak he was just so no can know he will kidnap the baby afterall he is a trickster and i thought she was using her super speed just that Hermes was faster

Yeah man, I don't know. I don't like to speculate about one thing or the other but I think both explanations above are viable. I'm just so tired of this book . . . There's no where else to get Wonder Woman though.

@darknightspideyfanboy: well maybe she used super speed at first,but it's hard to tell because the first scans aren't showing it clearly,and he tagged her too easy,and even if he is faster,wonder woman should have enough reaction speed to keep up with his attacks,she said that she didn't want to fight and even when hermes was bragging about his speed,it was shown that diana was able to cut his leg,and she was able to cut him again when he was following her at super speed,so i don't know what to think.

i understand you,i think the action in issue 18 was good(just good,nothing epic yet)and if this arc will be ending in issue 19,then i hope things start to get better.

Ares was trying to gain Diana's favor/, sympathy and trust by getting hurt.

@wdw: but what about the figth with hermes?,why hermes seemed to dominate the fight?,and why wonder woman didn't use her super speed?.

@gokuwarrior: She did use her super speed she held her own against Hermes but of course in the end he was faster.

@wdw: i didn't see her use super speed,i mean in the scans is impposible to tell,they should have written it better.

I felt as though the last scene was taken straight from a 1980s sitcom!
