Wonder Woman #751

A new chapter for Wonder Woman begins as her attempt to create a new life for herself in Boston leads to an arrest and probation by her friend and neighbor Agent Nora Nunes who apparently is the sole judge and jury to decide whether having an Amazon living there does potentially more harm than good.

While the framework of the story seems a bit... off (there really isn't any arrest to speak of, regardless of what Nora says, and panel of Diana at gunpoint is more laughable than anything else), it actually works well to showcase the work Diana does to those skeptical of a god/hero living among them. Is this the start of a beautiful friendship?

The issue also offers a new mythological threat for Wonder Woman as the rising storm (which she helps those around the city prepare for) is revealed to be the work of the Dark Fates who, after Cheetah's failure to beat Wonder Woman (despite all their help), now look to deal with her directly... no doubt foreshadowing trouble to come. Worth a look.
