Glory - Image Comics

Created by Rob Liefeld in 1993, Image Comic's version of Wonder Woman broke all the Liefeld rules.
No giant pockets, no thighs the size of redwoods and no giant anti-aircraft guns as sidearms!

Glory - Image Comics
Like Ghost, Glory is not very popular but worth mentioning.

For one thing, she was created by Rob Liefeld in 1993 and does not have huge pockets all over her costume and doesn’t carry a gun the size of a Buick. Okay...unless you follow comics that doesn’t make sense. But to those of us that know Liefeld...that’s quite an accomplishment for him!

Secondly, she's pretty much Wonder Woman. Just more "fun". Since Glory was an Image Comics character and not DC, Liefeld had more latitude with her. She was born in Amazonia and trained by Amazons (though her father was a demon making her half Amazon, half Demon), she went to the world of man in WW2 and fought the Nazi. What was even more fun was that she got to fight alongside not only the Image version of Superman (Supreme) but also the Image version of Captain America (SuperPatriot). So here in their WW2, you had an alternate version of WW, Supes and Cap all fighting the Axis forces.

Of course like WW, she carried over into the modern world and fought crime, demons etc. Well as much as she could. The series only ran for 34 issues.

As far as powers go, she had Wonder Woman level strength of course, flight, a demon spawned berserker rage and she could teleport through reflective surfaces, which I thought was kinda cool.
Another tie-in to WW was that artist Mike Deodato drew Wonder Woman from 1994 to 1995, then went to Darkhorse and drew Glory from 1995 to 1996.

The character was recently revamped and is now an albino giantess. ::sigh::
