Meet Wonder Woman’s Daughter In ‘Wonder Woman’ #800

It can be quite often the case that when your friends start having kids, you follow where they led. And so it is with Wonder Woman with the news, broke by IGN, that Wonder Woman is to have a child. Or rather a future version of Princess Diana in Wonder Woman #800. Her name is Trinity, co-created by writer Tom King (Batman, Mister Miracle) and artist Daniel Sampere (Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths), and her story sets up King and Sampere’s run on their new Dawn of DC Wonder Woman series later this year.

King told IGN that the idea originated, in a way, with Mitch Gerad, which got King ,”thinking about the son of Batman and the son Superman as older brother babysitters and how really the person they should be looking after is their little sister, the daughter of Wonder Woman. I have three kids, two of whom are close in age and then one who’s 5 years younger than those two, so I’m very familiar with this dynamic and its potential for comedy and drama. Super sons…and daughter. It was the kind of thing I’d want to read with them at any age. So, after I had that idea in my head, I couldn’t get it out.”

Like Damian Wayne and Jon Kent before here, King states that Trinity “has to be a character, she has to have weaknesses and strengths and a personality that can play off her brothers and her mother… This was a model for the impact we wanted for Trinity: someone who could reflect the greatness of Wonder Woman and still show a next possible step for the ideals embodied in that very impactful and very unique hero.”

Designed by Sampere and inspired by podcaster Darrell Taylor, Trinity, the artist told IGN:

“Well, it’s not just the costume, it’s about creating her entire appearance, her face, body language, visual attitude. It really was a big challenge but a wonderful opportunity at the same time. Luckily, this one flowed pretty natural from the first attempt. Tom gave me some previous notes about how he would like to have the curly hair and ponytail and also the three lassos. Starting from there my idea was to make a balance between some classic wonder woman details (like the stars or the bracelets) mixed with a more modern look. I pitched a possible design for Diana when we started the run with her having long pants that finally we didn’t use, so I thought it was a nice opportunity to give Trinity those pants. I also wanted to give her a more superhero look and less warrior based so I reduced to minimum the armor parts.”

So, does this new DC Comics’ character guarantee that Wonder Woman #800 will now sell out? Hmmm, I might just have to ask my local comic book store to save me a copy when it comes out this June.
