and in an interview with Azzarello,Originally Posted by Wikipedia article on Zola
No, she's not a baby killer yet, but if she's "capable of doing it", then something is horribly wrong with the character.Nrama: Let's address the big question at the center of this story, since we're talking about Diana trusting herself. Would Wonder Woman kill Zola's baby?
Azzarello: Would she? I'm not going to answer that. But is she capable of doing it? If the stakes are as high as they will be getting, then yes, she's capable of doing it.
But I don't want anybody to get the wrong idea. She's not a baby killer.
Oh, yeah, I actually did forget about that. But I don't think she actually means to go through with it, more of a convenient fib to get Apollo off their backs.
I can agree with this as well. For me, it's not any one or two things about Azzarello's run that has me disliking it but when you add everything up, I don't see any appeal in it. This just doesn't come off as a Wonder Woman book to me on so many levels. I know there are fans who are enjoying this run so I'm not going to ask for Azzarello to be handed his pink slip but I hope that DC relaunches Sensation Comics as a 2nd solo book for Diana with a more straight-up superhero approach along with her non-deity rogues gallery, Steve Trevor, Donna Troy, Artemis(the amazon), Nemesis, Etta Candy, Nubia, and occasionally Superman.
Like we are used to Ares always being evil, but so far he hasn't done anything other than drink his missing eyes out. As for the scene in Sudan and the Middle-East, I don't think he deliberately causes those situations, he is just there where it is, like Gaiman's Death is there when people expire, she doesn't kill them or cause their deaths.
"I'm going to paraphrase Nietzsche, when you judge a work, the work judges you."
Superhero comic books only become art to the extent that their banal, unrealistic fantasy and garish styles go too far and become interesting. Attempts to ground them in reality can only ruin them.
And yes, he didn't seem bothered by killing them, but then you have to take into consideration that he is a god and he doesn't necessarily consider the individual human anything more special than an ant.
I don't mean sacrificed in the sense of "to another being," more like using them as a necessary component to his divination.
That said I am suspecting that the new 52 Greek Gods are more in tune with the Endless than anything else. They have names, stations, personalities and responsibilities. Those things mean that they are around when their fields of responsibilities are in play, like War always being in the background when acts of war are played out along with Strife. And Apollo as Sun will burn like a star when the Sun rises. It's like the Icarus myth, no one thinks the sun is evil in it, yet it caused Icarus' death by getting too close to it.
