What do we know, and what can we guess, about the DCnU's version of Wodner Woman's origin?
I don't mean her birth story, but the events surrounding her departure from the island and her assumption of the Wonder Woan identify. We'll probably find out some of this in #0 in September, but meanwhile there's time to speculate.
Here's what I've seen, mostly form the JL 2 text feature:
--Captain Steve Trevor, USAF, had previously been a hero of Operation: Pandora's box and a member of Team Seven.
--Before the JL origin, now more than 5 years ago, Trevor received an order to rescue a Coast Guard ship from a hurricane. He later found out that the order was based on false information; there was no such ship.
--Trevor flew into the hurricane and then "fly through a circle of golden light and crash land on an island full of Amazons."
--Diana, according to Trevor, was unable to return to the island.
--Diana left the island to do "what she was raised to do....Fight."
Who provided the false information that brough Trevor to the hurricance and thus to the island? Was it someone who wanted to give Diana a reason to leave the isalnd and become Wonder Woman? I see a couple of possibilities:
She seems to have been planning, since she reluanched the timeline, to use the JL to caputre the Strange. Maybe she needed the Leagure to have Wonder Woman as a member. She probably knew of Trevor because of Operation: Pandora's Box, and maybe that's why she chose to use him as the catalyst to start Diana's career.
If Ares was planning something--as he was in past origins--maybe Strife secretly wanted him contained. I can see those two as rivals as well as sometimes allies; they kind of have ovelapping roles. If Strife secretly helped to prompt the mission, that could make her the fourth sponsor that Azz and Chiang mentioned.
In JL 2, one of Steve's colleagues or subordiantes is wearing ID that sawys "Orr," which was the name the mercenary in Azz's For Tomorrow" who worked for a myesterious group that ran most of the world.
