Out of all the terrific interpretations of the greek pantheon that have appeared in Wonder Woman, the most notably absent has been the goddess of Wisdom,warfare, justice and often times truth, Athena.
Given her role in the greek myth and how well it links up to the virtues Wonder Woman carries, and the fact Athena too was the daughter of Zeus, I had a crazy notion running through my head... what if Diana was Athena?
Now this could mean a number of things and can work in a number of ways. Perhaps Athena is a simple myth amoung the pantheon, thus truth and justice itself is a myth. maybe shes just been an empty concept thought the hstory of these gods and Wondy is the actual embodyment of that myth. Or perhaps she is a reincarnation of Athena after the goddess perished somehow, maybe thats just how Athenas mythos works in this world, maybe she keeps reincarnating herself. Or maybe Athena is simply a role played by a daughter of zeus like a mantle that is passed, maybe theres a more vengful version still around.
What I'm getting at here is that there are various different and entirely interseting storylines that could occur if WW has some sort of connection to Athena in some fashion. Diana is obviously a good enough character in her own right, but this is a world of nu ideas right? So just hypothetically speaking how well would this idea work? Is this what Azz is saving Athenas's intro for?
