Wonder Woman #758

Wonder Woman #758 offers a battle of wills between Diana, Princess of the Amazons, and one of the DC Universe's most mysterious mystical figures as Wonder Woman squares off against the Phantom Stranger in battle for the soul of Paula von Gunther.

The battle of wills between the demi-god and the the fallen angel forced to walk the Earth takes up most of the issue and Diana uses one of her oldest weapons to force the Stranger into a painful admission that appears to have immediate consequences for the mysterious figure in the fedora (making you wonder what may be next for the character).

Wonder Woman's victory over the Phantom Stranger also inspires larger changes as a passionate Diana is able to convince her mother to embrace the outside world and the women who need their help and guidance by creating an Amazon Embassy. However, the comic reminds us that the Dark Fates are still out there plotting and that victory often comes before the fall.
