Wonder Woman #300, Part Three
Wonder Woman again dreams of what her life would have been like if the events leading up to Steve Trevor crashing his plane had gone differently. This time Diana dreams of what would have happened if someone other than good old Steve had been a lousy pilot. Meet Trevor Stevens.
I wonder if this is Diana's subconscious letting her know something about Steve she won't admit.
Trevor's a bit...different than Steve. For one thing, he lacks even the basic sense of tact and courtesy that Steve possesses. I know, it's hard to imagine. But just look at the marvelous first impression he makes on Queen Hippolyta.
Oh no he didn't!
Damn! Polly got so pissed she came out of the panel!
It's hard to see exactly what Diana sees in Trevor, but somehow he managed to successfully get her to fall for him. This really doesn't say much for Diana's taste in men, that even in her fantasies she ends up with jerks.
Can you tell this was written in the eighties?
In this little drama, Diana didn't even bother going through with the contest, apparently. She just grabbed the outfit and the lasso and makes plans to take off with Trevor.
Cue Diana taking her plane underwater to recover a box that went down with Trevor's plane. He's oddly insistent that she get the "long, airtight box" out of the wreckage. But Diana's so besotted with him she barely notices. She barely notices the Amazonian armada bearing down on them as they surface until she flies right through it, wrecking ships and severely endangering her sister Amazons.
Cripes, woman, get a clue. The guy's congratulating you for nearly killing people. This is not a blissful "mmm" inducing moment, here!
Diana and Trevor head back to Man's World, Miami International Airport to be specific. Trevor's none too pleased to find a reception waiting for him (how did they know?), though Diana's naivete about the crowd around them is a nice echo back to her original arrival in America.
Turns out Trevor's just a common thief, and that airtight box contained a prototype disintegrator. Which he then uses to kill all those cops that greeted them at the airport. Yeah, Diana picked a real winner there.
As glad as I am that Diana finally got a clue, I'm horrified that it took her this long.
It's hard to believe that Diana managed to fall in love with the one guy who's even more of a chauvinistic jerk than Steve Trevor.
Wonder Woman wakes from her latest dream to see the shadow creature that's been plaguing her hanging around. It runs away before she can fight it, so to settle her mind she decides to hand-deliver some of her wedding invitations to her co-workers.
Diana, the correct response is "Stop being such an egotistical ass, Clark.
Diana starts to think in far more detail than she probably should about Clark's love-life as she flies back to Earth...only to fall asleep again. I don't know about you, but I'm not sure narcoleptic Amazons should be flying invisible stealth jets in the first place.
Tomorrow, the dreams of lots of creepy fanboys is made manifest, as Diana discovers what her life would be like if she married Superman.
Yeah. You just know that's not going to end well...
