Wonder Woman and Captain America in "Standoff at the Statue!"



Cap and Wonder Woman have finally recovered from the latest trial in their continuing romance on the blog, only to be attacked when they least expected it...

I can't wait to see Cap's latest cinematic outing next week, and with the early word of mouth that I have heard, it's gonna be a good one.  Principal photography on Wonder Woman must be wrapping up soon, so hopefully a teaser will follow soon after.  Despite mixed reaction to Batman v Superman, Wonder Woman received mostly unanimous praise, so I am looking forward to her solo outing.

What Marvel seems to have figured out since 2008's Iron Man is how to bring more and more of it's characters to the big (and small) screen. That's the core of their "cinematic blueprint". DC is still trying to get their core, iconic characters to film. I would have thought that Green Lantern would have been DC's version of Iron Man - but no. It probably should have been The Flash. Something like what is being done on the CW, on the big screen. Something fun. Something to update Christopher Reeve's wacky optimism. I'm more excited about the Marvel films that seeing my favorite DC characters on film...

It's another giant hand!

Bob Greenwade said...

That second Anonymous has an interesting point: this is twice now in just three days that Wonder Woman has been menaced by a gigantic hand (see #1478). Could there be some sinister force out there seeking to capture her for some nefarious purpose?

@Bob Greenwade: well, in terms of today's cover? I'm guessing DC's Golden Age Miss America. Perhaps, under the narco-hypnotic control of Mandrill's pheromones. Because, as I recall the origin story, Joan Dale received her molecular transmutation powers from Lady Liberty, herself! DC, of course, later ret-conned that as just a hallucinatory side-effect of some "super-soldier serum" knock-off.

But, I prefer to think it was Zeus' Queen Hera taking advantage of that drug-induced haze to do a little magical meddling!

Ergo; WW's old nemesis, Ares the war god, might exploit the Mandrill's ability as a convoluted way of capturing the Amazing Amazon.

P.S. (@Ross)---How about a team-up between Spidey and Araknis (John Blackwell) of Mystic Mushroom Comics' fame? Or Spidey and Fishnet Angel (of Shooting Star Comics' fame)?

Ross said...

Never heard of them...

Richard Fuller said...

Haha.

I would expect some cross-arounds with Uncle Sam, Wonder Woman (well, those two already met in Freedom Fighters #4 and #5), or Captain America and good ol' Miss Liberty from Batman and the Outsiders Force of July, about the only character I thought had any real potential.

But yea, we sort of got Miss Liberty here, don't we?

@Ross: see Loki of Midgaard's "International Catalog of Superheroes" website.

Bob Greenwade said...

A couple of the suggestions posted above made me think of a couple of good ones: Captain American and Liberty Belle (which did happen back in #991, though revisiting that partnership might be cool) and Spider-Man with Tarantula.

I like the idea of an ongoing relationship between Captain America and Wonder Woman.

Cob-Man said...

I hadn't heard of Cary's spider list either. Have you ever joined Spider-Man with the Golden Age Spider Queen?

Ross said...

Guys, don't forget - There's an Alphebetized label list to your left where you can check if a character has appeared or not.

@ Cob-Man's got a point. She's a public domain superheroine, now. And Marvel has only used her, once, as a super-villainess. It wouldn't be difficult to ret-con her as having reformed.

Your continued work on this pairing just gets better and better. I'm glad to support you as a patreon and presumably as a fellow Cap/WW shipper. (or as I like to nickname ship it as "the wonder cap project")

Keep up the great work!

Ross said...

Thank you, Michael. We are definitely not done with the WW/Cap story.
