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?

- 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.
