Reign of the Supermen #456: Super-Centaur

Source: Superman/Wonder Woman: Whom Gods Destroy #1-4 (1997)
Type: Elseworlds
What happens when you let Chris Claremont write an Elseworld? This: Superman started his career in 1938, but never aged, even though Lois and Lana did. Now in the present, his love interests are old ladies, and further, Nazi Germany still exists and is being propped up by evil Greek Gods, fueling the Nazi state with magic, monsters and a fascist Wonder Woman. Claremont has a recorded thing for transformations (Psylocke being one example), so as the story goes on, Lois is turned into a Wonder Woman more like the one we know. Lana becomes the Oracle at Delphi. Circe turns Superman into a centaur, who does nothing but drink and "claim" centaurettes all day. Lana makes him snap out of it and becomes a centaur herself so they can frolic together. You know who's been cheated out of some sweet centaur love? This girl:
Then because he sinned against women, Superman is turned into a human girl (who looks like Kara). His days as a woman are short, and his true self is released when he sacrifices his human life. And it all ends in his house on the Moon, with Lois/Wonder Woman and Lana/Oracle all young again and on the cusp of a threesome. No really, this whole series has something kinky about it. And it's not just the Wonder Woman bondage stuff that's, I suppose, a tribute to the Golden Age stories. Makes me feel kind of icky.

Let us never mention it again.

I feel weird that I still find Lois hot.

This sounds like the worst elements of kinky fan fiction.

Is that you asking Father Christmas for a Whom Gods Destroy trade?

I was so excited and so disappointed with Whom Gods Destroy. CHRIS CLAREMENT!! Wonder Woman's first starring (ok, co-starring Elseworld)!! Interesting artist!!!

Boy what a let down. Wonder Woman is evil and a Superman character (Lois) becomes Wonder Woman. As a Wonder Woman fan, I was disgusted! It is just like Grant Morrison's JLA Earth 2 - again, Wonder Woman is not portrayed as her own character. Quite disappointing for this fan...

I remember my store forgot to hold one of the issues for me, and I didn't ask for it. My collection remains incomplete, and I don't really care.

You must not be very happy with Diana's role in Justice League right now.
