The Wonder Woman faces her greatest challenge as goes toe-to-toe against Clayface. He would have her as he sees her, a hero to the American people. But heroism isn’t just great deeds, or the courage against overwhelming odds. It’s the compassion of mercy and forgiveness – something Clayface is sorely lacking.


But Diana is not in this battle alone, as the women who follow her – Donna Troy, Cassie Sandsmark and others – take up the battle against Clayface and his twisted ideologies. Readers will have to wait to see if their combined powers will be enough to finally put Clayface in the ground.


I was a little concerned during one particular sequence in this issue, as it seemed that Wonder Woman was literally about to “stop a war with love.” But the villains of the DC Universe are not nearly so gullible as that. If nothing else, they are on a committed path of evil, and less susceptible to the will of the heroes. That’s why they’re villains.


This issue is drawn by two separate artists. Siya Oum handles the first portion of the book, later replaced by Luciano Vecchio. Oum’s work is more painterly and traditionally illustrative, while Vecchio’s work reminds me of animé. There is a place for that, but I am uncertain if Bombshells United is it.
