Wonder Girl First Details

DC Comics announced that Wonder Girl would get her own six issue mini-series - Wonder Girl: Chammpion. Champion will ship this fall, with J. Torres scheduled to write and Sanford Greene on art. For first details, IGN Comics turned to Torres. As always, stay tuned to IGN for the latest on Amazons Attack and Wonder Girl: Champion.

IGN Comics: Can you tell us a little bit about the plot?

J. Torres: We kind of spin off from Amazons Attack, and we see how Cassie kind of has to clean up after the Amazons and what happened in Washington. And she's kind of pissed about it, because it seems like nobody else either seems to care as much as she does or feels as much responsibility to clean up the aftermath of the Amazons.

So she goes around cleaning and rounding up all the beasts that we've seen that were involved in the battles, and she's kind of pissed off about nobody helping her. But at the same time, she's kind of taking it upon herself and not letting anybody help her. That's how the story starts, and as we progress, we're going to get more and more into the fact that she's a demigod. She's the daughter of Zeus and the champion of Ares, with all these powers - what does that mean? She hasn't really addressed that as much as I think she should have, or other books should have, so we're getting a chance to explore that. What the hell does that mean? She's the champion of Ares - so what? What does that mean? What are her duties, her responsibilities? She's a god of war, is she supposed to be there to wage war, to be a war monger, to be a peacemaker, to end war…what is it?

At the same time, she's got issues with Wonder Woman and the Titans she has to work through. And to complicate matters, here comes Hercules, who is essentially her half-brother. He comes in and says to her, "you're better than these mortals. Why don't you do something about your lineage and background?" So we get into that, and we tie into Countdown, which I can't talk too much about, but I will see it involves more gods.

Hopefully by the end of it, we resolve some of Cassie's issues and she battles the demons she's been carrying since Connor's death and the 52 stuff. And when she comes out of it, hopefully she has a new direction as Wonder Girl.
