Since Wonder Woman has now declared that the best way to protect her sisters is to murder anyone who threatens them, how is she going to do it? Its crucial for Straczynski to have Princess Diana kill in order to further establish this bold, brave, new, less baggaded universe that he is writing for her.

Personally I'm hoping for machine guns. I think the new outfit would really pop with two massive machine guns, one in each hand. She could neck snap two soldiers, take their weapons and go to town!

What does everyone else think?

Will she snap their necks like Max Lord? Will she use her fists to bludgeon them to death? Will she allow them to die by their own devices like she did in 600? Lets speculate!

I'm certain she'll convince them all to join the Amazons Attack Cult and drink the special kool-aid.... That way she won't be explicitly responsible for their deaths.

But, she may get some jail time....

I'm thinking there won't be any killing - that this Diana needs to learn that vengeance isn't the answer. I don't think anything about killing anyone is 'crucial' for JMS.

I don't think she will havethe lasso in time but I would love to see her loop someone around the neck and then pull so hard and fast it severs their head. Now THAT would be a signature move.

Taking SoD's comments tongue firmly in cheek, its still difficult to see how Diana is NOT going to wade in the blood of her enemies. After all, these folks killer her mother and the last issue she saw her Amazon sistes making no bones about soaking the ground of Themyscira in the ichor of their attackers.

On the other hand, there is always the possibility that while she is holding a terrified soldier by the throat or is about to drop the turret of a demolished tank on his head that she will have a flashback of her mother talking to her about control and mercy or somesuch, of maybe even Hippolyta's shade might appear to her and warn her away from the darkside.

But yeah, I am personally expecting to see dead mercs.

And dreading it.

Wow! If Princess Diana doesn't kill, I'll drop the book!

Edit: There should be a "spoiler" for this thread

It's all just speculation. Spoilers are only required in the presence of published facts.

Kill 'em all and let the Gods sort them out.

Do you feel lucky, Male? Well...do you?

Who doesn't mind this ALTERNATE take on Diana since the one he loves and admires will meet this one and the two will be better for it all along. The fans, however...nevermind.

The Wonder Woman animated movie taught us that the tiara's razor sharp edge is the better instrument used beheadings.

I think that Diana may start out as a killer (or as a "warrior") but that she will come to learn better. The "real" Diana is still out there, haunting her dreams, and I don't think that personality is hard to suppress.

C'mon it's speculation! I can poke fun at all the crazy ideas like J. Michael Straczynski is out to destroy Wonder Woman.

Amazon 1: "Why did all the fighting stop?"

Amazon 2: "Shut up fool. They killed whoever was in there way and they will discover us hiding in this ruin soon enough. Pray for mercy from the men and maybe our deaths will be quick."

Female voice:"Come out Amazons. Time is not our friend."

Amazon 1:"That...that was a woman's voice...who?."

Female voice: "Amazons emerge. Now."

The Amazons leave the ruin slowly stepping out into the dessert. Their attention is drawn to a large bonfire in the middle of the valley. A female figure steps around from behind the fire.

Amazon 1:"Who...who are you?"

Female: "I am Princess Diana, daughter of Hippolyta your Queen. I have slain the men that were going to kill you. Grab any weapons you can find, more will come soon."

At this point the Amazons see that Diana is covered in blood and the bonfire is made of the bodies of the mercenaries.

Amazon 2: "Thank you Princess. We are forever in your debt." She bows.

Princess: "Thank me by arming yourselves and preparing for war. More men will come to kill you. Do not let them. Once we have made them pay we will reclaim our home and rebuild. Until then the best way for me to keep you safe is to destroy anyone that would harm you. Now go."

Hopefully this is what we will see in 602!

It will be revealed that the reason Diana changed her costume was that she now works as a cocktail waitress at Harrah's Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey!

You forgot the part where she tells them to nail up the bodies of the men they kill and carve the W symbol into their bloodied corpses, that all the world may know the Amazons and fear them.

I bet she finds the invisible plane on Themyscira and uses the props to chop up a battalion of baddies with blood and brain flying everywhere!!!
Since she and Supes and Bats aren't friends yet she can get away with all of this without those two passing judgment this time!!!
I love darker Diana she is exactly what I want my daughters to aspire to!!!

Well the brilliance of her new origin ties in directly with her place in the trinity. Now it makes sense for her to share this bond with Bruce and Clark.

Bruce watched his parents get gunned down and became the Dark Knight.

Bruce was raised in a loving foster home. He lost his entire race and planet.

Diana was raised by a select few of her people with the chance to salvage some of them. She grew up in a foster situation and through a vision saw her mother sacrifice herself.

Now all three have the similar experience of growing up without their birth parents to raise them. I think its great that Diana of the three will take it to the darkest most extreme place. Bruce fights crime to prevent his fate from happening to others but Diana is willing to kill and even alter time to change her situation. How many people would actually defy Gods to change their life? Inspiring stuff there.

On Drop Dead Diva the main character had on a low cut red top with a dark jacket over it. She has dark hair and striking eyes anyway. Made me excited to see the new look is current after all. :-)

The new outfit is definitely stylish.

Military jackets are so in right now it's ridiculous. Anything military style, really...

I just wish she had some ********* boots.
