Kamala Khan co-creator and writer of the current ongoing Ms. Marvel series, G. Willow Wilson, will be taking over writing duties for Wonder Woman at DC beginning this fall. The news was announced by publisher Dan Didio on the July 11, 2018 episode of DC All-Access.
“I’m delighted to be writing such an iconic character as Wonder Woman and to be working with DC once again,” Wilson said in a statement. “With more than 75 years of history, Wonder Woman has a wealth of backstory and drama to draw from, and I look forward to putting a spin on Diana and her supporting cast that’s both new, yet familiar. It’ll be a challenge to do her justice, but I like a challenge and can’t wait to get started.”
Wilson has been exclusively writing at Marvel for the last several years, and wrote A-Force – Marvel’s first all-female Avengers team – in addition to Ms. Marvel. However, she has also previously done work for DC, for titles including Superman and Vixen.
Her first story arc for Wonder Woman will be titled “The Just War,” and will feature art by Cary Nord (Conan, The Unexpected). The story will follow Wonder Woman as she seeks out the missing Steve Trevor, only to run into one of her greatest enemies: Ares. Though he’s engaged in the revolutionary conflict, Ares seems different, making Wonder Woman wonder whether he can be redeemed and question what happened to the unbreakable prison built to hold him on Themyscira.
“The Just War” begins in Wonder Woman #58, which hits shelves on November 14.
