    Default Did Wonder Woman ever face Despero alone?

    I got the Justice League Chronicals for Christmas and I was wondering if she had ever faced the villains featured in the stories, Amazo and Despero alone.

    I remember she had a throwdown with Amazo in the JLA series, after Amazo basically took everyone else out, just before the most recent one, like, before the crisis that led to her, Superman and Batman all leaving. She did pretty well until the point where Amazo had to be forced out into a black hole, and he stopped her by pushing back at her with basically Superman and her strength combined. By then, a few others had recovered enough to help her finish the job though. But yeah, that was one of the sweetest WW fight sequences I've seen.

    Dunno about Despero though.

    Think you have to go far back to find Despero vs. WW, off the top of my head I cant remember seeing him between the events of ID Crisis and his skinny appearance in those Booster Gold issues dealing with the Return of Bruce Wayne.

    There are some foes she just never faced alone I guess.

    I believe the closest you'll come to that is by tracking down 1976's Justice League of America # 133-134. I have them in storage somewhere but with that in mind, some googling may present some leads for you. I've seen them on Ebay.

    If she does, she better hope it's not Johns Despero. In JLA/JSA: Virtue and Vice he was fighting Supes, Captain Marvel, Power Girl and Hourman, then in his JL arc he was fighting Supes and Red Tornado while controlling Bats, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, Hawkman and I think a couple others.

    This was my favorite part.



    Thank you, mr McDuffie, we could always count on you to give the girl some props.

    Good thing Despero and Amazo never teamed up.

    That is from 2008's Justice League of America # 24!. It was a 2-issue thing which started in 23.

    I found 134, but I haven't found 133. But in 134 she was a pushover. I thought of this again since I think Despero is back in the lasted JL book. If they haven't upped Diana's mental defenses a bit she's toast.
