What’s going on with Ares, the God of War? Once willfully imprisoned by the Amazons, Ares has found himself back on the outside, and he has no idea how he got free. What he does have, however, is a new, seemingly improved outlook on life. Determined to be a force against injustice, he’s intervened in a small nation’s civil war, fighting with the army of rebels against the oppressive government regime. While Wonder Woman may be sympathetic—or even supportive—of the cause, she can’t approve of Ares’ hardline tactics and near utter disregard for human lives. The regime may be wicked, but a hero must be better…right?
Not according to Ares, who believes the only way to bring down oppression is to be unyielding in the fight against it. But that’s not Diana’s way, which causes the two one-time enemies to once again trade blows. But should they be fighting each other? Don’t they want the same thing? And what about Ares’ claim that no one is really innocent in war? Is it true, and if so, then what does that say about war in general? All questions worth considering, but first Diana must survive Ares’ attack in this first look at WONDER WOMAN #60.
WONDER WOMAN #60 by G. Willow Wilson, Cary Nord, Mick Gray and Romulo Fajardo Jr. is in stores this Wednesday.
