2010 Dark Angel color art by Oliver Nome

I didn't much care for John Byrne's run on Wonder Woman, and his "fix" for Donna Troy's continuity only made it an even more wretched, convoluted mess that devalued the character to the point of her being executed in a Titans/Outsiders crossover. The only good things to come out of that by my reckoning were closer ties between Diana and Donna, and the invention of an archnemesis for Troia in Dark Angel. Honestly, the name is generic as hell, the look isn't much better, and don't ask me what her powers are, but at least Dark Angel gave a form to direct all that anger at Troy's mishandling. Nome does a nice job of providing D.A. with visual personality and some sauciness late period Byrne couldn't summon on his own. I really like the color version, but she also looks hawt in black and white.
