A cadre of Wonder Woman’s greatest foes bands together to create an unspeakable monster out of the ashes of mankind’s deadliest sins. True to the name she has chosen for herself, Genocide lives to spread hopelessness and hate and has been tasked to destroy Wonder Woman and all that she holds dear. Diana must gather up all of her strength and call upon her allies to save the world. Although this is a straightforward working of mainstream superhero plots, Rise of the Olympian offers a no-holds-barred, action-packed ride. The art is fluid and dynamic, and Simone (who took over the franchise in 2007) supplies strong writing. Grades 9-12. --Tina Coleman
