After making his debut in the pages of the Justice League storyline “Darkseid War”, the heretofore unseen twin brother of Wonder Woman, named Jason, had not re-appeared after the events of Rebirth. Once Greg Rucka, Liam Sharp and Nicola Scott got their hands on revamping the character and her origins as a part of the post-Rebirth continuity, readers figured that perhaps that was the last we’d see of that eleventh-hour revelation.
But, as it turns out, this will be the focus of James Robinson and Carlo Pagulayan’s upcoming arc on the book, beginning next week. In Wonder Woman #31, Jason will make his proper debut. Just where has he been all this time? What are Grail’s plans for him? Where does Giganta fit into all of this? And maybe most pressingly for my concerns, how do Jason and Grail even exist if Diana’s origins have completely changed? Are we looking at another Superwoman-like bit of retroactive continuity? We’ll see!
“Children of the Gods” part one! Spinning out of the pages of DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH and JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR, legendary writer James Robinson (JSA: THE GOLDEN AGE, STARMAN) comes on board to answer one of the biggest questions of the year: Who is Wonder Woman’s brother? Taken away from Themyscira in the dead of night, the mysterious Jason has been hidden somewhere far from the sight of gods and men…but his life and Wonder Woman’s are about to intersect in a terrifying way, bringing them face to face with a cosmic threat they never imagined! Don’t miss the start of the next great Wonder Woman epic!
