The oddness doesn't stop there though because while Eirene continues her foray into madness and monologuing, we find out that instead of acting out the will of war, Wonder Woman is turning it in towards herself........ and I guess this makes her eyes bleed because that starts happening here and I'm left wondering if Aegeus shooting Wonder Woman with the God killing arrow in a previous issue, that wasn't a fatal shot, but made her eyes bleed nonetheless...... well, I'm left wondering if it was because of the arrow or more of that inner conflict that Wonder Woman has out of nowhere, that seems to be killing her.
In the end, Donna explains that before disappearing and being reborn as baby Zeke, Zeus had a bunch of shit in motion. Since the Three Fates were born of gods, they were too closely related to them and as people started to not believe, they aged and became frail. Leave it to Zeus though to know that a Wonder Woman clone would be made out of clay, tying her to nothing but the Earth and with baby Zeke's resurrection of her, he made Donna the new Fate, giving the longevity back to the gods......... and I guess resurrecting Aries and Apollo with it...........even though Apollo is a big bag of dicks. Before we can get any real explanation of what Aries being alive again does to Wonder Woman's role as God of War, the story is interrupted as we see Aegeus coming to out of nowhere and Eirene giving him another zap........ and possibly disintegrating him again, but more likely, even though Aries is alive again and Eirene appears to be cured of her insanity affliction, I'm guessing she still wants the little douchebag to finish off Wonder Woman at some point in the future.
That's it for this issue of Wonder Woman and I don't know if everything that we've seen of this title from the beginning of the New 52 just wasn't working anymore or what, but this issue just kind of throws everything that we've been dealing with for the past four years away. Aries is alive, Apollo is alive, Donna is now Fate for some reason and Wonder Woman may or may not be the God of War..... it's all very unclear and the simple explanation that Zeus saw all this shit going down just doesn't work for me........ might as well just do whatever you want in the story and say God works in mysterious ways.......... I'm still not sure who killed the Three Fates and it's not addressed here..........God did it. So we've got that and really, that's the last two pages and the majority of the book was Wonder Woman being confused about what's going on while Eirene threw a temper-tantrum. Just a really unremarkable issue. The only solid point to the book was the art because even though most of it was Wonder Woman on her knees, while Eirene stood over her, it still looked great........ at least we have one consistent thing going for this series.
Bits and Pieces:
While big things seem to be taking place in the last page of this book....... I say "seem" because nothing was really fully explained, the rest of it though was nonsense that just repeated itself over and over again and became really tiring to read. Like usual though, the art in this book was great, it just didn't give us a lot of exciting panels to play with.
