In 2016, DC Comics once again relaunched all of its publications as part of the “DC Rebirth” continuity reboot, which has a new bi-monthly Wonder Woman series from writer Greg Rucka. The new Wonder Woman series does not use a regular storyline that exists between each issue; instead two separate storylines share the book, with an installment of one story published every other issue, and those of the other storyline published in between those. This practice began with the storyline “The Lies” for the odd numbered issues, and “Year One” for the even numbered issues.

The new storyline as presented in these issues effectively tells the events from the previous New 52 series. “The Lies” storyline reveals that a number of events from the previous Wonder Woman series in which Diana was made the Queen of the Amazons and the God of War, was in fact all an illusion created by a mysterious villain, and she had never once been back to Themyscira ever since she left, nor is she capable of returning there ever again.

The “Year One” story is presented as an all new origin story for Diana, which reveals how she received her powers from the Olympian Gods, which was intended to bring her back to her classical DC comics roots. Wonder Woman appears in DC Rebirth with a revised look, which includes a red cape and light armor fittings. Along with her lasso and bracelets, Wonder Woman now regularly utilizes her sword and shield.
