And Then I Read: WONDER WOMAN #47

This issue opens with a lengthy fight between Diana and Supergirl, who is possessed by the Dark Gods that have been threatening to arrive since last issue. Then Diana’s brother Jason (is this the Jason of the Argonauts? I don’t know, and it’s not apparent) has a conversation with The Fates over drinks about the armor he’s found that gives him the powers of the Greek gods, but only one at a time. When Jason does finally arrive to help Diana, not only do the Dark Gods finally make an appearance, Diana is wooshed away to a different story at the same time.

The plot is in charge, though there are interesting moments. I loved the different aspects of The Fates, for example. But I have yet to feel any real impact from these Dark Gods on the main players, and other character development seems to be on hold. Hoping there’s more meat in the next issue, which will focus on Jason, apparently.

Mildly recommended.
