Welcome back once more my amazing Amazonian affiliates to another instalment of “Classic Wonder Woman”, Precinct1313’s weekly comic cover countdown to the 75th anniversary of the World’s pre-eminent female Superhero. This week our delve into the Amazon archives yields; Wonder Woman (Volume 2) #118. Written and illustrated by John Byrne, with cover art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. Released in February 1997.

This weeks titanic tale is titled “Claws”  and presents yet another chapter in the eternal struggle between Wonder Woman and her enduring nemesis Cheetah. Barbara Minerva’s ferocious alter ego returns once more, but this time is even more dangerous and feral after her deal with Andre Neron (In the 1995 mini-series – Underworld Unleashed.) But her intensely magnified powers are gradually eroding her humanity and Diana must attempt to counter play her deal with the demonic Neron to hopefully regain Minerva’s human psyche.

We also get to see Diana’s post-crisis version of the classic invisible plane. The jet’s previous origin is revised, as it is now rarely seen since Wonder Woman gained the ability to fly. Diana is gifted a mysterious technology, The Lansinar Disc, a morphing crystal designed by a blind race of aliens first introduced in Wonder Woman #115. The jet propels itself using graviton particles and is telepathically attuned to Diana’s thought waves. 

Join us again next week for another classic WW cover my avid Amazonian associates!
