REVIEW: Teen Titans #18: Disjointed Wonder Woman

“Who Is Wonder Girl?” Cassie finally learns the truth about her father and her powers-but her mission puts her on a collision course with Wonder Woman, and it may change the Teen Titans forever! 

Special guest Wonder Woman steals the issue and it’s not exactly a good thing. The rest of the Titans take a backseat to her exposition and Wonder Girl bonding with Cassandra. It gets to the point you start to question why the rest of the Titans are even in the issue. Sure they are here for moral support with a teammate but overall they contribute next to nothing except Red Robin giving Wonder Woman a lift in the Batplane.

The action is the saving grace in this issue. As the team makes their way to where Cassandra is taking them, they are attacked by giant snakes. Wonder Girl is able to go all out on them, even employing a demonic armor she usually hesitates to use. Watching her brutally tear apart the monster is the highlight of the issue and really helps to accentuate the art.  

The issue ends with Wonder Woman using the lasso of truth to discover Cassandra wasn’t lying about wanting to help get Cassie’s dad back and so they let her go. What the heck Wonder Woman? You just earlier in the issue said she was involved with a conspiracy with the First Born which resulted in many people losing their lives. But in this incident she’s telling the truth and you’re perfectly okay with it? Shouldn’t you be questioning her motives for why she is attempting to resurrect Cassie’s father? Also weren’t you recently or are still holding the title of the God of War? Shouldn’t you have a bigger problem with someone using a device owned by another god so casually? Also it’s revealed you are Wonder Girl’s aunt which seems to have little impact on anything despite being supposedly being a surprise. You really feel disjointed here Wonder Woman and it really drags down the issue because of it. Hopefully you will redeem yourself with the next issue because you seem to be staying around until the storyline with Wonder Girl wraps up.
