A more controversial yet still well done run shows the mighty Amazonian Princess fighting the pantheon of Greek Gods and even have a brief meeting with Orion and the New Gods as well.  If you are ok with a more violent interpretation of the character it may be worth a look.  And then of course there’s also Cliff Chang’s amazing art.
