I’ll be honest. Since we didn’t see much of her beyond the #1 issues of the New 52, I had completely forgotten about the hooded woman. But now she has a name.
Pandora. Say it with me, Pandora.
Does this make me more or less interested in her? Is it an interesting allusion to her having a large and chaotic involvement in the way the New 52 universe unfolds? Is it an over-use of an already over-used name? Is it DC’s way of making a subtle stab at a certain jewellery company?
Probably not that last one.
Either way, I’m curious to see how she fits into things. I think as the stories of the New 52 rolled on into their 5th issues this month, many of us forgot that supposedly there a was storyline reason for all the changes. So, we’ll have to see how that plays out.
In the meantime, today’s page was brought to us by the exceptional Eric Maruscak:
