Wonder Woman's sword?

#1 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

ok, weird question here...

is Wonder Woman's sword a cannon weapon for her?

i admit i don't read much WW, but i can't recall ever seeing it in normal DCU...

The sword was said to have been made by Hephaestus and could 'carve the electrons off an atom', it even cit Superman's thumb when he tested the blade in Kingdom Come.

i was just wondering if it had ever shown up in mainstream DCU

Nope. It's not really a part of her arsenal.

I guess you could, like as a "secondary" thing. I would say it was pretty popular in Kingdom Come. "Wow, WW's got a sword! PHWOAR!"

This is a good question. Does anybody know the power's of WW sword.She seems to carry it a lot. What special properties does it have?That sword she has on her hand.

Did they ever give an explanation for it?

Where does she even keep the sword. Does it magically appear.

No she carries it on her hip opposite the lasso

I think she uses it in Infinite Crisis. But it could have been just a regular sword...

I don't think it's the same sword, considering it didn't cut off Superman's fingers.

The artist depiction changes but its the same sword that was forged by Hephaestus. Its now a canon weapon and she uses it quite frequently. Not cutting Superman's hand may simply mean that it cant in the New 52 Universe.

can you explain how the sword sticks to her thigh?

@moywar700: Not really but it looks to be held on there by the black leg strap. Its also appears to be able to discharge destructive energy

It's kind hard to tell. Looking close at. The black strap it's underneath the sword .

@RazzaTazz: that one did cut superman... i was surprised when it didn't cut superman's fingers in JL #11

Wonder Woman's sword is powerful enough to cut the likes of herself and Superman, it could also kill any Gods permanently. Click this, Flashing Blade

But in the New 52 there is one scene there wherein Superman hold the sword's blade and I concluded that her sword isn't the Flashing Blade. If it were so, Superman would've bled.

@theblondegod: She does have the sword that can split atoms, as seen in Superman/WW. It could cut Zod and Faora, it would definitely cut Superman if he wasnt careful. It also pierced Doomsday.

Hi there! :) Yeah I've seen it, it's too powerful maybe the sword is really the Flashing Blade.

Also, Diana channeled the sword's power because she used it to burn Faora's left cheek.

There is also one scene in JL New 52 where Green Lantern was about to be slain by Diana but Superman stopped the sword and there's no blood. I just can't find it. Lol.

@theblondegod: I'd say rather than Diana doing anything, she simply used the heat still in the sword from Zod's heat vision.

Also I dont think the blade Nemesis wielded is the same that Diana and Hippolyta have used. Being beyond razor sharp was all that Diana's blade could do, while the Flashing Blade could do a host of other things. Not to mention Diana actually broke hers at the end of Infinite Crisis to stop Batman from shooting Alex Luthor... and that small thing about having to pry the blade from Nemesis in the first place.

@outside_85: Hey yeah! I didn't see it sorry. Thank you, you're right! And it was just an inference if Diana's sword in the New 52 is the Flashing Blade but I think it's not. :)

@outside_85: @theblondegod: I thought Nemesis wields the Sword of Omens? I remember in a New 52 arc where Katana cut Diana's sword in half with hers.

@zhurong: Isn't that the Thundercats sword? :)

She wasn't really channelling anything with the sword...it had just been superheated by Zod's Heat vision.
