James Robinson On The Search For Wonder Woman's Brother

A year ago a mystery started in the pages of Wonder Woman: "Who is Diana's brother?" The answer to that question begins today in Wonder Woman #31 by new writer James Robinson and artist Carlo Pagulayan.

Robinson discusses with DC All-Access the Children of the Gods story arc, the introduction of Paul and Diana taking on Darkseid. Now Paul lives in a remote part of Oregon where he cuts down trees and lives a secluded life. (Anyone else thinking Paul Bunyan?) Robinson says that who he is and why he leads an isolated life will come out in the story, and he hopes readers will enjoy and be delighted by it.

We also meet Blake Cooper, a probate lawyer. Why would Robinson introduce an action-packed character like this to the series? It seems Wonder Woman gets an inheritance, and it's part of the mystery of her brother. But he assures readers that Cooper will be an important character.

And then we get to the return of Grail, who we haven't seen since the conclusion of the Darkseid War when she was given baby Darkseid to raise. That has to be weird, since she's Darkseid's daughter. She wants her daddy back, fully grown, and going to the children of Zeus is part of that. This will lead her to Diana, who had the Justice League with her last time there was a fight — but now Diana is alone.
