A short lived Continuity Reboot of Wonder Woman by J. Michael Straczynski following Wonder Woman (2006) and preceding the New 52 reboot of DC's entire line. The continuity started in the celebratory 600th issue of Wonder Woman and lasted for fourteen issues.

With the closing of this chapter of Wonder Woman's history Wonder Woman (2011) began, with an entirely new Diana with an entirely new backstory.

Tropes:

  • Adaptational Modesty: The new Wonder Woman outfit features a leather jacket and a pair of pants, and Artemis gets a Palette Swap of the same outfit to highlight her status as Diana's rival.
  • Demonic Possession: The Big Bad Nemesis is using the unwilling body of an alternate universe's Diana.
  • It's a Wonderful Plot: This storyline is surprisingly still fresh ground for comic books. Wonder Woman finds herself in a parallel timeline where Paradise Island was destroyed when she was a child and she was smuggled to Man's World as a baby and raised in the streets and alleys by the few surviving Amazons. Slightly subverted, as instead of just witnessing "the world without Wonder Woman", she'll be living it, and fighting to regain her old status (thereby repairing the timeline).
  • Mirror Match: The big bad is possessing an alternate universe version of Diana, and they do indeed fight.

  • Psychopomp: Charon's position as a psychopomp is highlighted, though he's very pessimistic and unenthusiastic about his role.
  • The Ferryman: Charon remains at the banks of the river, even while the realm of Hades is overflowing and crumbling in the wake of Hades' disappearance.
  • Take That!: In the previous Wonder Woman volume Diana's love interest was Tom Tresser, aka Nemesis, in a relationship that was nearly universally disliked. Here Nemesis is the name of the Big Bad.
