After learning he hurt a sister of Diana's, I'm beginning to think gran hermano, Lennox - the Rockstar, the Gargoyle - might be about to turn evil on us.
The way I figure it Lennox's name is either a play on the duplicitous nobleman, who ultimately betrays Macbeth in William Shakespeare's Macbeth or the famous stone lions in front of the New York Public Library, ..at one time, called Leo Astor and Leo Lenox. I am leaning towards the former, since it looks like might have a less than sterling reputation among the other Zeus-spawn. There's just something I don't like about Lennox's conversation with Milan in Issue #15.
Milan didn't seem too happy to see the Rockstar.
So, may as well kiss Lennox, goodbye. A shame, because it might have been nice to see the Scion of Zeus team-up and kick some ass. Oh well...

And that's why I keep beating the drums for getting Lennox some easily identifiable Wonder-iconography. Bracers, a belt-buckle...something that, when he appears in other magazines, points back to the Wonder Woman comic, ..attracting a broader audience. NEW readers!
Couldn't hurt sales anymore, than they're already hurtin'.
If there's anyone with half a brain in the marketing department, they'll have figured this out by now, ..and maybe, that'll keep Lennox alive. As I've said before, nearly since his first appearance in Issue #5, with the right editorial development and marketing, Lennox is the next Wolverine, and my opinion hasn't changed.
Even if he turns rotten as eggs, let's hope the Wonder-editors keep him in Wonder Woman, as a recurring (NOT regular) character.

Put that bunch together - Wondy, Lennox, Siracca, Milan and a new Hercules - and they really do look a little, like the Uncanny X-Men of the mid-to-late 1980s. Can't help, but wonder, what a Team Wonder Woman would look like.
Maybe, a team book, The Wonders, a Wonder Family gone NUCLEAR, isn't totally impossible.

Lennox is not evil. He is Constantine.
Wonder Woman loves you too.

Honestly, I can't WAIT for the day, when truly dynamic characters, created exclusively for regular use in Wonder Woman, can pop-up in other comics and lure readers back to Wondy's book. When that happens enough, it'll create a persistent buzz that could keep this comic in publication (in some form) for another century! Lennox and the other Zeseids are a great start.
Wonder Woman needs that, and she's never had it.
And for crying out loud, will the Wonder-editors quit giving away our super-villains and supporting characters?! Jeez! Doctor Cyber, I Ching, Warkiller, ..now, STEVE TREVOR - all gone! If these sorely neglected, underdeveloped characters can be rehabbed, why in Hades aren't they being rehabbed in Wonder Woman, for use in Wonder Woman!
What are they thinking?!
And don't be so sure that, once the Justice League creators turn Steve Trevor into D.C.'s answer to CABLE (one of the X-Men) - once, he becomes really cool - that editorial control of him will be returned to Wonder Woman! If I was publishing JLA, I sure as hell wouldn't give him back, since the WW team couldn't do anything with him, in the first place. Would you?

Thanks to all - Mel, Slvn, Amazon Fan, Outside - for the insights into the names; interesting reading.
I hated how Doom Patrol stole Veronica Cale and never gave her back. *grrr*

"... Act, that each tomorrow find us farther than today."
Now that Lennox, Constantine and Steve Trevor have all come up, I have to say that I'm eager to see Steve interact with Lennox, in the next run of Wonder Woman if not in this one. Steve has been a great ally/foil for Constantine--a G man uneasily working with a con man--and despite being different from Constantine in ways that Mel and I have mentioned, Lennox could have a similar and even more interesting dynamic with Steve. Steve and Lennox are both protective of (and potentially overshadowed by) Wonder Woman, but Steve is straight-laced and Lennox is rough-hewn; that could lead to some interesting conflicts and collaborations.
