Diana Confronts Her Brother in WONDER WOMAN #36 (Exclusive Preview)

Diana Confronts Her Brother in WONDER WOMAN #36 (Exclusive Preview)

During “The Darkseid War” storyline, Wonder Woman learned one of the most closely guarded secrets of her life: she has a twin brother named Jason. Unlike his sister, Diana, Jason was not raised among the Amazons and he grew up without ever meeting his real parents. When Diana finally managed to find Jason, she was dismayed to discover that he had seemingly sided with Grail, the daughter of Darkseid, in a bid to kill all of Zeus’ children—including Diana!

After an interlude that explored Jason’s childhood years, this week’s Wonder Woman #36 will find Diana in chains as she desperately attempts to reason with her brother. As writer James Robinson established in the previous issues, Jason and Diana’s older brother, Hercules, played a large role in training Jason during his formative years. And as you can see in the gorgeous preview pages by artist Carlo Pagulayan, Diana wants to create a wedge between Jason and Grail by pointing out that Grail killed Hercules, and Jason could very well be next once Diana is out of the way.

Grail’s endgame appears to be the restoration of Darkseid, who was transformed into an infant at the conclusion of “The Darkseid Wars.” The stolen powers of Zeus’ children have already been used to age Darkseid and bring him back to the cusp of godhood. But DC has hinted that Diana may have an “unexpected ally” in her battle with Jason and Grail. And even though she is a captive, Diana is far from helpless.

On this issue, Robinson and Pagulayan are joined by inkers Jason Paz and Sean Parsons, as well as colorist Romulo Fajardo Jr. You can find the rest of the preview pages in our gallery below, as well as the covers by Bryan Hitch and Jenny Frison.

Wonder Woman #36 will be released on Wednesday, December 13.
