Gail Simone’s Wonder Woman – Ends of the Earth

The third story arc in Gail Simone’s Wonder Woman run was “Ends of the Earth,” with art by Aaron Lopresti, Matt Ryan, and Brad Anderson.  Remember, I’m reading this all for the first time as I write this, so you’re getting my unfiltered, well maybe slightly filtered, thoughts as I experience them.

We start this story with special page borders.  I’ve read enough that my first thought upon seeing this is that something unusual is going on.  If everything was fine, and we were out in the real world, then there would be no need for the special border.  So, where are we?  And since I’m on the topic of art, I like the use of an establishing shot here on this first page.  It’s not so important when reading these issues as separate stories, but when everything is at a monthly pace, starting wide and coming close on Wonder Woman is a good way of showing the reader that this is a new start before they ever get to the title card.  And yes, I know the cover also does that, but I honestly don’t pay a lot of attention to covers.  Sorry.

The story begins with Wonder Woman walking through the snow.  A lot of snow.  And it’s cold.  No, correction.  It is very cold.  I love the line “The jealous cold wants to claim the breath from my lungs.”  Anyone that’s been in subzero temperatures knows exactly what that feels like. If you haven’t, then be thankful that you don’t know the feeling.  Within that same narration box, she comments that she’s here on the whims of a madman.  Here we are, two panels in, knowing that she’s absolutely miserable and someone has done this to her.  And oh, she’s being hunted by some hungry and desperate wolves.  And one more thing, she doesn’t have her powers here.  Wherever this madman sent her, it’s not some place where she can just become Wonder Woman.  Perplexing.

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - opening

The wolves attack, they bite and scratch and claw, but Diana does her best to just be defensive.  She’s not really interested in killing these animals just because hunger has made them mad and desperate.  Eventually, Diana is able to get the lasso around them, which is still working correctly even without her powers.  She learns that these wolves are just in a lot of pain and suffering, and even though the lasso soothes their pain for now, they want release before they turn on each other.  Well, being the merciful thing to do, Diana gives them the release they are seeking.  And this is an absolutely depressing way to start this story.  But we must carry on.

Diana arrives at her destination, which happens to be a tavern like the ones you find in any fantasy story.  There are probably at least thirty of them in Skyrim, though this issue is a few years before Skyrim.  The bartender seems to think Diana is a lady of the night, a member of the oldest profession, a proprietor in the red light district.  You get the idea.  Must be her weather inappropriate clothing, as Diana is still mostly in her Wonder Woman suit, or something that very closely resembles it.  Even though she has no powers.  Still peculiar.  Diana pays this judgemental bartender no mind and takes a seat. She’s expecting someone to arrive at just this moment, and sure enough, her intended target does arrive.  This man, also inappropriately dressed for the weather, is seeking the spawn of Cain, named Grendel.  Diana knows that this man is Beowulf.  Wait a second.  Beowulf and Grendel, as in the Scandinavian legend?  Well, I knew that fancy border at the beginning meant things were going to be a little weird.

Meanwhile, at the Department of Metahuman Affairs, six hours ago, Director Steel has called Diana Prince into his office to harass her a bit.  Just poking and prodding that she might be something other than a perfectly normal human.  Specifically, Steel questions how she could survive a fight with Captain Nazi and a C-4 detonation.  Diana replies with “training, skill, and luck,” which is a wonderful comeback.  You stroke the ego of the Director, who would have been responsible, in some way, for your training and skill set.  You wrap it up with a little bit of luck. It’s humble, can’t be disproved, and the Director would probably be able to relate to being lucky in a close life or death situation.  It’s a completely safe, passive aggressive come back.  As Diana goes to leave, Director Steel drops an unexpected promotion on her, telling her to form a team of six from the candidates that he has selected.  Maybe it’s a setup.  I wouldn’t trust a group of candidates this clearly antagonistic Director has selected.

Immediately upon leaving the office, a surprised Diana is pulled by Etta Candy, who is eagerly wanting to know what the Director had to say.  You know how it is in offices.  A co-worker friend gets out of a meeting and you immediately want all of the details on what was discussed.  So maybe you two, possibly a third person, spend the next several minutes going over everything discussed.  If you work in an office and have never done this, then sorry, but you need better work friends.  But I digress.  Diana tells Etta that this is all a tactic by Director Steel in their jousting back and forth with each other.  Diana is also a little evasive when Etta asks her why she accepted the position.  Etta sees that she’s being evasive and doesn’t press the matter, because she’s her friend.

Diana and Etta go back to Diana’s office, where they find that creepy dude with the red glowing eyes from “The Circle” waiting in the office.  Etta draws her gun, the dude draws his sword, and Diana steps in and disarms him.  Weird dude tells her that he has no name, though everyone calls him Stalker.  Seems to fit.  H says that he wants her to save the world, and to use the cord she carries if she doubts him.  Not heeding Etta’s protesting, Diana hands him an end of the lasso.  And this was a mistake, and Diana immediately realizes it.  Outside appearance, Diana just kind of spaces out.  And then we get more special panel borders, this time using the lasso as the border, to reflect Diana being under its influence.  She discovers that this dude doesn’t have a soul, and is devoid of any type of love or joy.  All there is is suffering.  Etta, determined to get Diana out of whatever mind whammy this guy has done to her, grabs the lasso.  Unfortunately, she can’t get Diana’s attention, as Diana just increasingly feeling the cold, until she looks to be pretty much frozen.

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - dazed

Back in the fantasy world, Beowulf has become annoyed with Diana, and so they fight.  Diana can feel Stalker’s influence in her heart, the cold desire to kill her enemies, which she refers to as “The Black Horizon.”  They fight for a bit, but after a stiff punch to the nose from Diana, Beowulf has had his fill of fighting.  Like, nope, no more, I’m good.  Which is a good thing, because every other patron in this tavern is a worshiper of Grendel.  And there’s going to be a fight, but we’ll have to wait for it.   Back in the real world, Stalker tells Etta that he needed to eliminate the compassion out of Wonder Woman because he needs her to kill someone named D’grth, otherwise know as the Devil.

At the Department of Metahuman Affairs, Director Steel surprises Agent Tresser.  Now, I don’t know who’s idea it was to have Tesser pictured with his feet on the desk, but it was brilliant.  It shows well the lackadaisical nature of Tresser. The best way to describe the conversation between Tresser and Steel here is imagine yourself getting tormented by your boss, where you’re fairly certain you’re about to be fired, but it’s just as likely they just want to have some fun at your expense.  Eventually, Steel gets to his point.  He believes that all government agencies are being infiltrated, and the DMA itself my have two such agents, Diana Prince and Etta Candy.  Tesser kind of scoffs at the notion that they could be commies, because this is the Cold War 1960s and all.  (It’s not the Cold War.)  Steel believes they are something much worse…Amazons.

As Wonder Woman is fighting off the followers of Cain, with Beowulf, she is sensing The Black Horizon start to take hold of her soul.  She’s losing any type of compassion she may have had.  Yes, she is in a fight for her life, but it has been stressed in these issue up to this point that compassion, even towards enemies, is a large part of her identity.  The previous story, “Expatriate,” was centered around that, and seeking to not partake in more violence than necessary.  Find the peaceful solution.  Having that taken away from her is starting to scare her.  Even when sorcery gets involved, and the people turn into demons.  We see Wonder Woman get into a bit of blood lust, severing limbs, until a demon manages to actually cut, and she’s ready to send this being to hell.  And make sure you tell them who sent you.  Very un-Wonder Woman like.

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - send to hell

Beowulf, deciding that a well timed retreat was in order, grabs her and they get out of there on the townspeople’s horses.  Wonder Woman thanks him for stopping her from killing that thing, even though he’s all “pfft….I would have killed him if circumstances were better.” Diana then begins to pray, and it leads to this wonderful character moment with Beowulf.  When she starts praying to Kane Milohai, Beowulf mentions that he does not recognize that name.  She mentions that she only recently met him, after her Gods didn’t answer and she needed help.  To this, he calls her fickle.  Diana mentions that there is debate about whether he is Christian or Pagan, to which he replies “that’s interesting.”  Beowulf goes on to insinuate that anyone that would abandon their Gods cannot be trusted as a travel companion.  Surely, she is some courtesan sent by his enemies to kill him in his sleep. 

I love this moment, because you’ve seen physically what Beowulf is capable of, but now we see some mental capabilities.  This pushing of buttons allows him to see what kind of person Diana is.  If his prodding is not met with violence, then he know that she can be trusted.  If she were to respond with violence, then he can face it now, face to face, rather than risk some treachery.  It would have been easy to just make Beowulf a brute, but giving him this moment allows him to be something more. Beowulf can be seen as an equal to Diana.  The provoking almost works. When Beowulf grabs her arm, Diana is ready to draw her sword. But, she see her constellation, and takes this as a calming sign given by Kane Milohai. She then tells Beowulf that she has come to ask for his help, and then Stalker shows up. Probably would have been more useful had he shown up earlier. 

Back in Washington, Agent Tom Tresser is not at all having to stake out Diana’s apartment, wishing that he had told Director Steel exactly what he thought of this assignment.  And then, he sees a gorilla staring out of the window.  Thinking it may actually be Grodd, he springs into action, calls for back up, busts down the door only to find that it isn’t actually Grodd.  It’s the gorillas Diana had befriended way back in “The Circle.”  But Tresser doesn’t know any of this, because they had hidden when he had come in.  However, seeing himself greatly outnumbered, Tresser is having regrets on leading with an insult.

Now it’s time for some history of this Stalker guy.  Essentially, he was a selfish fool who had sold his soul to a devil named Dgrth. You can tell he’s evil because his name has no vowels.  Also, the whole devil bit.  Stalker  sought a Seer that informs him that Dgrth may be killed on the stone alter at the end of the world, but he will need three other particular sword bearers.  Then, Stalker has the audacity to slap the Seer, asking why he should trust her.  Like dude, you’re the one that came to her.  Why would you do such a thing if you didn’t think you could trust her?  However, she responds to the question with the fact that she was also a greedy fool, and wants to see this devil killed.  Stalker then delivers the ominous prophecy to Diana that the Seer said Diana would pay and especially dear price, and even though she would help Stalker, she would regret ever laying eyes on him. 

To travel to this other plane they need to go to, Stalker presents the soul to the Rock of Eternity, which is also a rock.  They connect this rock to Diana’s seashell vehicle, and then find themselves pretty quickly in another fight.  Diana tries to end the fight by making this guy see reason with the lasso, but the lasso no longer responds to her. I can only assume that this is because of the change going on in Diana’s soul.  Unable to get their combatant to see reason, she ends the fight with a stiff punch to the nose, knocking whoever this dude is out.  Stalker retrieves a glove like thing from this guy, finding a deformed hand underneath.  As Beowulf and Diana are having a bit of banter, Stalker and Beowulf both react with shock to what has happened to Diana’s hand.  She looks down to find that it has transformed into a monster’s hand.

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - monster hand

On Themyscira, Queen Hippolyta is walking along the beach, lamenting that her daughter has not come back to her, and also certain that Alkyone was not eaten by the megalodons.  She then comes upon a wooden crown, similar to the one that Alkyone had made for her, but was broken.  Hippolyta demands that Alkyone show herself, but only comes up on one the megalodons, dead and washed up on the beach, missing a large chunk of its side.  Hippolyta is left to wonder what she has done.  If you ask me, she has created a monster that can take a chunk of a megalodon out of it, while in the water.  Though it is curious why this is coming up now.  Is Alkyone going to play a role in this story, or is just a tease of things to come, like when Stalker first showed up?

Now we’ve come to a dream sequence, and you should know that it’s a dream sequence not just because of the sudden change in scenery and impossible scenario before you, but the art directly tells you that this is a dream.  You see a sketch-ish drawing of Wonder Woman’s face, with her eyes closed, and then the first panel, with a different panel outline, comes directly from her mind.  If that doesn’t immediately tell you that this is all within her mind, then I don’t know what would.  The contents of this dream are pretty standard stuff.  The heads of your enemies on stakes.  Having your pick of the most eligible bachelors.  All the power you could possibly want.  You know, standard stuff. 

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - waking dream

Diana starts returning to the real world when Queen Hippolyta warns her not to trust the red-eyed man.  Even though this is a dream version of Hippolyta, the real Hippolyta is able to warn her through the veil of time.  Whether or not the real Hippolyta is controlling this and aware of what is going on with Diana is unclear.  Stalker, who also happens to be in the visions, goes yeah you shouldn’t trust me, but would all of this be so bad?  You could accomplish everything that you ever wanted to, if you just rule by my side.  But then Diana comes out of the dream, and you know this, because the final panel leads back into a sketch-ish drawing of Diana’s face.  Kind of like an artistic bookend. 

Stalker tells Diana that the waking dreams is how it begins.  What exactly “it” is he doesn’t say.  Because of course he doesn’t.  That would be useful.  Although I guess “it” could be The Black Horizon.  Diana asks him about it, and Stalker flat out refuses to tell her what it is.  Says that if he does, then she will lack the courage to face it.  Well, that’s pretty ominous.  Stalker goes on to say that he never had a name, and grew up in super duper poverty.  Poverty so povertous that your cultures can’t even imagine it.  So, even before he sold his soul, he’s not entirely certain that he actually existed. And all of that is what got transferred to Diana when she used the lasso on him.  The lasso isn’t mad at her, it just can’t find her in the dark.  For a weapon that is essentially tied to your soul, it makes sense that something impacting your soul would interfere with the operation of the lasso.

Diana and Stalker meet back up with Beowulf and Claw (the guy that had the glove thing).  Claw is a character that I don’t think I have ever seen before.  Beowulf had been trying to convince Claw that he should care about the world ending.  Claw is still a bit upset about getting punched in the nose by the trollop Diana.  Reluctantly, Claw joins them on their journey to seek out the Seer on this plane of existence.  While they are traveling, Diana decides to give Stalker the name of Elpis, which means hope.  He’s like, you can’t just give me a name, and Diana is all like, well, I just did.  Deal with with it.

Agent Tresser and the gorillas at Diana’s apartment find that cooler heads did not prevail.  He thinks that they are agents of Grodd.  They know that he’s the love interest, but also know that he is here now, in her home, working against her, and her home must be protected.  So there is a big ol’ fight, full of explosions and everything.  It’s classic misunderstanding between people on the same side.  As I read it right now, it seems like a waste of time.  Maybe there’s something more to it. but right now, it just seems more like a distraction from the main story line, rather than useful exploration of what a side character is doing.  Eventually, Donna Troy shows up and wants to know what in the world is going on here.

Diana and the guys find the Seer that they were seeking, and she has zero good news for them.  First, you all die alone in a pauper’s grave.  Next, Gods are searching for Diana and will taker her if they find her.  And D’grth?  Oh, he knows exactly what your plan is, and is waiting for you at the stone table on a world you haven’t encountered yet.  All really good news to lift their spirits. 

After leaving the Seer, Diana and the guys find themselves in The Black Horizon.  It’s actually a literal place, and not just a state of the soul.  Diana is contemplating the Seer saying that one of them will betray them, but I’ve re-read that scene several times, and the Seer didn’t actually say anything about a betrayer.  Is this a mistake in the writing?  A sign of Diana’s descent and becoming untrusting?  An extrapolation of the Seer saying that D’grth knows their plan, so of course there must be a betrayer?  I’m not sure.  I guess believe whichever you want to.  But thinking of you it could be, Diana doesn’t suspect Beowulf, could easily see it being Claw, worries that it could be Stalker, and fears that it might end up being herself.

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - black horizon

Suddenly, they find themselves face to face with Grendel and D’grth.  Of course the fight quickly starts.  Diana urges Stalker to join in the fight, and he does…by throwing a sword at Diana.  Well, looks like we don’t have to wait very long to find out who the betrayer is.  Turns out, it’s the creepy guy that gathered them here through lies, and has the super creepy name of Stalker.  Who could have guessed?  Fortunately for Diana, Beowulf throws himself in the way of the sword, and it pierces his chest.  Stalker explains that when he learned that he could not defeat D’grth, he made a deal with him to bring him the three people that could, as well as the eternity shard.  Personally, I don’t think bringing the people who could kill me to me is all that great of a plan, but what do I know.  Maybe I’d be confident in the plan knowing that I had a man inside the group.

Diana is of course pissed off at this betrayal and starts pounding on Stalker.  He just kind of takes the punches, happy to feel something again.  D’grth had restored his soul, or what little of it exists.  This is a bit of a humorous moment.  Diana lays into him, and D’grth is ribbing Stalker, saying that it looks like he’ll get to keep his soul anyways, you know, because Diana is just going to kill him here and now.  Stalker is all, nuh uh, I was merely letting it happen to enjoy feeling something.  Then you have Diana going, well, I didn’t want to kill you anyways, and shows that she attacked just so she could grab the eternity shard.  And oh yeah, Elpis is a girl’s name, because of course it is.  Diana is from an island of women.  I’d assume any name she’d come up with that is based on her native language would be a girl’s name.

With the shard, Diana has regained the bit of her soul that was lost, and charges at D’grth.  Diana uses the shard and gauntlet to pretty much drag D’grath to Earth.  And you can tell that’s it’s Earth Earth now because the Washington monument is behind her, and she also back in her standard Wonder Woman costume.  However, her eyes are red, so not certain everything is a-okay.  And also, Washington doesn’t seem like a good place to be for an Amazon post Amazons Attack.

This last part begins with a great opening.  A close up on Diana’s boots as she’s walking out of the Reflection Pool.  The narration boxes show that she is thinking about how much she has gone through because of other people.  Taken to new worlds where her powers were taken from her.  Her appearance changed to match that world.  Her soul diminished so that she’d lose her connection to the lasso.  People on three worlds calling her whatever their version of strumpet is.  But that was all then, as Diana.  Back here, back home, she’s Wonder Woman.  With this last bit, the art shows her taking flight, showing that she has really made the switch from Diana to Wonder Woman.  It’s really a great piece of story telling that you can do in monthly comics.  As  single, continuous reading experience, you couldn’t have this moment of build up before you get to the action.  Once Diana gets D’grth back to Earth, you’d have to go straight into the action.  You could possibly keep the narration, but the impact wouldn’t be the same.  The moment of lift off wouldn’t have the same effect, because you would have presumably already seen Wonder Woman take off.

However, before the fight can truly begin, a news crew gets in the way.  And while she does catch the helicopter after D’gth knocks it out of the sky, you can see Wonder Woman hasn’t exactly returned to normal.  She has a moment where she thinks that perhaps she should just leave the crew to be killed by D’grth, before his strike against it, but ultimately tries to intercede.  And still leaves him to catch the copter.  So, while she’s not blood thirsty, she’s not back to her compassionate self.  Oh, and also, the red eyes should be a clue.

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - red eyes

Back in The Black Horizon, Claw has been punch the living daylights out of Stalker.  Though, Stalker seems to think that Claw can’t actually kill him, because well, thousands have tried and none have succeeded.  Beowulf, near death from a case of sword going into his chest, tells Claw not to kill Stalker, because Stalker hasn’t told them everything.  Stalker goes, you’re right, I did have help betraying Diana.  He then introduces Oracle, The Witch Queen, who is the first Seer that we were introduced to, who had also made a deal with D’grth.  The only difference between her then and now is that now, fawn’s legs have replaced her lack of legs.

D’grth offers Wonder Woman a deal.  Well, he is a devil.  Deals are kind of a big thing with him  D’grth offers her everything she could want if she serves him:  all the joy this world has to offer, her Gods worshiped, and her sisters provided everything they could need.  Or, she could become cinder.  It’s that classic offer you can’t refuse.  Wonder Woman ponders for a moment, and then her mind goes back to the wolves.  Creatures whose pain increased every moment they lived, but kept their honor to the end, going out as  pack.  And this comes up because Wonder Woman asks D’grth the age old question of why should he get to live when they had to die.  And then they fight.  And Wonder Woman quickly discovers that perhaps punching a being made of unnatural fire isn’t the best idea, as her punching hand and arm get burned.  Personally, I thought that was something she realized would happen previously, as when she brings D’grth to Earth, she uses the hand with the gauntlet on it.  But Wonder Woman don’t care.  She’s determined to take out D’grth, even if it kills her.

Meanwhile, back at Diana’s apartment, Donna Troy calms everything down, and puts Agent Tresser’s worries at ease.  Donna does an elaborate vow to Tresser that she means him no harm, and this has him feeling kind of foolish for even suspecting for a moment that Diana might have been a double agent.  Complicating his life, probably, Tresser has to explain to all the backup that he called in while fighting the gorillas, that everything was a false alarm.  Nothing to see here.  Again, I hope these scenes pay off later, because right now, they just seem like a distraction from the main story.

D’grth thinks he has this fight well in hand, and make bad guy mistake number two.  Number one is monologue-ing. Number two is gloating when you think you have the fight won.  What D’grth doesn’t know is that Wonder Woman’s willingness to say no to his deal and sacrifice herself has helped to reclaim her soul, and her lasso now recognizes her.  And she uses the lasso to slice off his hand.  Now, I’m no lassotologist, but I don’t think that’s how a lasso works.  A whip?  Maybe.  But a lasso?  Nah.  Before D’grth can even finish his “how dare you hurt me,” Wonder Woman has her invisible jet fly through his midsection.  What?  Wonder Woman is  blind spot for me that I’m trying to catch up on, but has she always had the ability to just summon her jet?  Why not just summon it soon, or is it also tied to her soul?  But still, she flew her frickin’ jet through D’grth.

Some time later, Wonder Woman returns to The Black Horizon, dragging the still bargaining head of D’grth with her.  Stalker hesitates in killing D’grth, because he doesn’t want to end up in the blackness eternal again.  Wonder Woman points out to Stalker that his soul was consumed long ago by D’grth, and it ain’t coming back.  What he’s been feeling is her soul, because it had to go somewhere, and he can’t keep it.  Stalker relents and gives it up, and Wonder Woman points out an interesting aspect in how this fulfilled what the Oracle had said previously.  Wonder Woman does regret ever meeting Stalker, but not because of anything Stalker did, but rather what she had to do to him.  She had to take from someone their chance at having a soul again.  That seems like a pretty heavy burden to bear.

The four of them follow through on burying their swords into D’grth’s head killing him.  Stalker and Oracle left without much of a good bye.  As Beowulf, Claw, and Wonder Woman begin to part ways, Claw notes that Grendel just kind of ran off.  Not sure if we’ll get back to this, but I hope so.  I’d enjoy another team up between these three.

Wonder Woman - Ends of the Earth - deal with the devil

In Diana’s apartment, Donna asks Tresser if he loves Diana.  He essentially answers that that is his and Diana’s business, and he can’t explain it any better. Donna seems to like this answer.  Me?  I’m totally confused by it.  Like Donna requested a straight answer, and was given anything but a straight answer.  Like, why he loves her is a perfectly acceptable question to have an unsure answer to.  But do you?  This doesn’t make much sense to me. 

To close out this story, Grendel was looking in on the events at Diana’s apartment.  Director Steel is in disbelief about what Tresser did, and is being told that Tresser is actually working with the Amazons.  Which, much like the rumor that Diana Prince is an Amazon agent, this isn’t technically wrong.

That wraps up the “Ends of the Earth” story.  I greatly enjoyed the fantasy aspects of this story.  We got to see Wonder Woman having a bit of an edge to her, without having to go full “this is the dark and gritty version of Wonder Woman.”  I do suspect that my enjoyment of the fantasy elements contributed to my dislike of the Agent Tresser stuff.  Yes, it looks like at this point that this was to set up issues for Tresser within the Department of Metahuman Affairs.  And yes, that will probably be a decent story to tell.  I just wish right now, that those pages would have been used to expand upon the worlds Diana was traveling to.  More time to interact with Beowulf and Claw.  But I get it, Tresser has an ongoing story with Wonder Woman, and that story has to happen at some point.  Just hope I like the payoffs when they come.

Up next, “A Star in the Heavens.”
