Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles is a series of animated shorts meant to introduce alternate universe versions of DC Heroes, leading into the release of the Justice League: Gods and Monsters animated feature film on July 28, 2015.
The newest episode, released by Machinima, features the New God Bekka, the warrior goddess who is also known as Wonder Woman. In the six minute short (which also contains an ad for the 2016 Honda HR-V Crossover) shows her taking on a horde of Kobra soldiers and a secret weapon that should look familiar to long time WW fans to rescue Steve Trevor.
Most alternate versions of Wonder Woman are either excessively warlike or an aloof goddess, Bekka is not only different from the one most of us have grown up watching, but she is also different from the various faux Dianas from things like Flashpoint or Kingdom Come. She has a look similar to the Bruce Timm version of the New Gods, an aggressive attitude both on and off the field of battle, and most refreshingly, a sarcastic and playful personality.
If this short is an indication of how the rest of the movie will be, then it looks as if Justice League: Gods and Monsters will be a welcome addition to the video library of any Wonder Woman fan.
