Wonder Woman Is Poised to Reinvent a Major Villain

G. Willow Wilson will kick off her run writing for DC's Wonder Woman with "The Just War," a storyline set to begin in November's Issue #58 and continue into Issue #59. This new chapter for Diana's story promises to resurrect and reinvent classic Wonder Woman villain Ares, the God of War.

It seems that Ares is considering changing his evil ways and turning over a new leaf, at least to some extent. However, considering the fact that Steve Trevor is in a fairly bad way, the last thing he and Diana likely want is the God of War on the loose on Earth, especially considering he's not the only dead Olympian poised to make a comeback.
