Ah, "New Earth..." What's not to love about you? You erase Batman "Hush" inspired rememberances from The Riddler's mind. You restore Wonder Woman as a fully-founding member of The Justice League of America and then you give us fresh from ditching the shoulderpads and slaying The Nemedian Lion, Hercules Unbound? Yes, people, after a thirty-one year absence from the DC Universe proper, Hercules Unbound has returned, replacing wet-mop, serial rapist and Greek God Heracles.
The Hecules Unbound at the end of Wonder Woman #2 had a short-lived twelve issue series featuring beautiful interiors by future comics legends Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and Walt Simonson with inks by EC Comics legend Wally Wood.
Hercules of Unbound fame existed in a post-apocalyptic world occupied by the likes of OMAC, Kamandi and The Atomic Knights. With OMAC appearing in his own comic and The Atomic Knights coming across The Command-D Bunker are we witnessing the re-weaving of Bronze Age threads or does Wonder Woman writer Alan Heinberg just think 1975's Hercules Unbound just kicked ass?
