DC’s Trial of the Amazons is Wonder Woman’s first crossover event in 30 years

DC Comics announced on Saturday that it is readying Wonder Woman for the first crossover event to spin out of the hero’s main series since the early 1990s. The reveal was made by a DC FanDome panel. Amazons Trial will rock DC’s expanding Wonder Woman titles at a “cosmic scale” in 2022.

The Wonder Woman’s world was in turmoil for several months. Diana went through various afterlives searching for a way home to Earth. Diana’s mother Hippolyta took on the role of Wonder Woman, while Nubia became Queen of Themyscira. The Wonder Girl, a new Wonder Girl, began her quest to be a hero in Brazil.

And from that grand shuffling of roles will come “a power struggle that will redefine the future of DC’s Amazons,” according to DC’s news release.

In the pages of the forthcoming series, you will see the first signs of this conflict. Nubia & the AmazonsA new series, titled ‘The Event Series,’ will launch on Oct. 19. The event series itself will be written with input from all the writers in DC’s current Wonder Woman titles: Becky Cloonan, Michael Conrad, Vita Ayala, Stephanie Williams, Joelle Jones, and Jordie Bellaire.

“Wonder Woman has a literal ISLAND full of interesting characters, along with various family members scattered across the globe,” Conrad told Polygon. “Trial of the Amazons presents a unique opportunity to either bring them together or fracture these relationships further. Diana finds herself as perhaps the only tenuous bond between them all, but she won’t be able to fix this alone.”
