This Month In DC History

Wonder Girl, Cassie Sandsmark, just one of Zeus’s many children, was introduced in 1996, although she was unaware of who her father was. She borrowed Wonder Woman’s clothing and gained powers to take down a clone of Doomsday until she got a gift from Dad, her own powers. 

What else happened in 1996?

  • DC and Marvel had a fight… in a cross over series called DC VS Marvel Comics. There were 5 battles that were voted on by the readers and then several others that the writers chose the victors. The fights were as follows (winner in bold)
    Captain Marvel vs Thor
    Aquaman vs Namor
    The Flash vs Quicksilver
    Robin vs Jubilee
    Green Lantern vs The Silver Surfer
    Catwoman vs Elektra
    (And then the voted on Battles:)
    Lobo vs Wolverine
    Wonder Woman vs Storm
    Superboy vs Spiderman
    Superman vs The Incredible Hulk
    Batman vs  Captain America
    After these battles an Amalgam universe was created where the likes of Iron Lantern and Super Solder lived. 
  • Superman and Lois Lane got married. It was a slow-con for the 1960’s Lois Lane but her evil scheme of marriage to the man of steel finally worked.
  • Hal Jordan died and had a funeral that was way more green than the house down the street with the solar panels.
