    So it's the Flash that's missing his ring, not Green Lantern...

    And does this mean that Hawkwoman and Aquaman shacked up... there be some drama ahead.

    Wonder Woman, not Hawkwoman.

    I have to agree with the Hawkwoman idea.

    The symbol for Aquaman has the blue earth the bird/"W" symbol has a red planet.

    I realize the article says it's a redesigned WW symbol but I'm not sure it's accurate.

    I do remember that there was a foreshadowing around Infinite Crisis or one of those things that had a future where WW was married so maybe they're finally getting to that but we just had that whole series of DC covers that displayed the characters symbol and WW's didn't look like that at all.

    I'm not against it as a new symbol but for me I see a hawk and and "W" and I'm thinking "Hawkwoman".

    Just a guess: "Where is his ring" could mean that Barry isn't married to Iris anymore.

    Wait...maybe I'm wrong...is Flashpoint an alternate reality storyline?

    I saw this image and that got me thinking it's not canon based

    So that would explain an altered WW symbol.

    Yep, my thinking exactly. I suppose there is the eagle imagery to consider if it is Wonder Woman. But what about the color? Shouldn't me a cleaner golden color if it is Wonder Woman?

    Besides I think Hawkwoman would be way more fun, the arranged marriage angle, and her true love Hawkman on the side... heh

    yeah. With the reality shifts she's undergone already in her own series, I was pretty sure it was Wonder Woman they were talking about despite the different looking W

    I thought it was WW first as well, but I think the Hawkwoman angle is very possible. And while the article states it's a redesigned wonder woman logo, that appears to be conjecture on the part of the author and not confirmation from DC.

    Just for fun, a logo comparison of WW and Hawkgirl:

    WW:


    Hawkgirl:



    I'm more leaning to WW, since the teaser is focused on the Big Seven. But it still could be interpreted either way, I think.

    Default Wonder Woman or Hawkwoman?

    Well, Wonder Woman is a princess and Aquaman is a King and it makes more sense that two earth-bound cultures might have a political marriage to prevent a war. Is Hawkwoman in any position of political relevance? Hawkgirl was a ruler in a previous lifetime centuries earlier but not so much these days. BTW do atlanteans in DC worship the greek gods like their Marvel counterparts?

    Well, ALL the logos presented have similar digital surface treatments. Also, if it's an arranged marriage, it's nice that the gold of the Aquaman symbol and the bird symbol are the same.

    BTW- I'm probably being pedantic but the "WW" was a stylized bird image from the beginning, anyway. If it is a redesigned symbol for wonder woman, it's just a little less abstracted.
