Throughout the story, Wonder Woman finds herself at odds with her fallen allies, engaging in intense clashes. In a moment of clarity, Flash, ensnared by the Lasso of Truth, confesses that only death can free the brainwashed heroes. Undeterred, Wonder Woman persists with her non-lethal approach, even enhancing her shield with green Kryptonite to weaken Superman. However, Task Force X argues that a Kryptonite sword would have been a more effective solution, urging her to embrace a lethal strategy.
While Wonder Woman doesn't directly battle Batman in this game, his voice can be heard lamenting over the comms to Brainiac, expressing regret that she didn't willingly join their cause. He recognizes her immense value as an asset to the team, a true testament to her abilities.
During an intense battle with Superman, Wonder Woman puts her Kryptonite-enhanced shield to the test, attempting to subdue the Man of Steel. The clash between these two powerhouses spans the vast expanse of Metropolis, causing considerable collateral damage. Despite her best efforts to minimize harm to civilians, the chaos ensues, with Lois Lane's desperate broadcasts attempting to guide survivors to safety.
Their epic confrontation reaches its climax outside the Hall of Justice. As Superman shatters the Kryptonite on Wonder Woman's shield, she reluctantly realizes that victory requires a more drastic measure. With emotional remorse, she stabs the Man of Steel in the chest with a Kryptonite shard. However, Superman, injured but not defeated, retaliates with his heat vision, ending Wonder Woman's valiant effort. It turns out that Brainiac's DNA alterations have rendered green Kryptonite less effective against Superman, leading to this tragic outcome.
As Wonder Woman succumbs to her injuries, surrounded by Task Force X, she questions why the Kryptonite failed to kill Superman. In a dramatic turn of events, Wonder Woman transforms back into clay before cracking and dissipating in the wind. This peculiar transformation is a clear nod to her classic origin story from the Golden to the Bronze Age of DC Comics.
In the early days, Wonder Woman's origin was quite different. She was not born in the traditional sense but formed out of clay from the shores of Themyscira by her mother, Queen Hippolyta. The clay figure was then brought to life by the Greek deities. This classic origin choice explains her unique transformation in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
In the New 52 comics continuity, Wonder Woman's clay origin was revealed to be a cover story—a means to protect her from the wrath of Hera. While this aspect isn't directly addressed in the game, it's clear that Rocksteady chose to stick with the classic interpretation.
The choice of Wonder Woman's original clay origin also plays a significant role in her immunity to Brainiac's mind control. In the Golden Age of DC Comics, Wonder Woman possessed various psychic powers, thanks to her creator William Moulton Marston's background in psychology and interest in parapsychology. These powers included extrasensory perception, astral projection, mental control over electricity, the ability to convert brain energy into muscle power, and even telepathy (though limited without a psychic radio).
Marston's interest in parapsychology led him to grant Wonder Woman immunity to mind control through "The Sight of Athena." Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, bestowed this gift upon Wonder Woman, granting her divine wisdom, enhanced empathy, and the ability to resist mind control. Although these other psychic powers aren't present in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, her resilience to mind control remains consistent across different iterations.
While not explicitly confirmed in the game, Wonder Woman's unique physical structure may have played a role in her immunity. Brainiac not only controlled minds but also altered the DNA of those under his influence, transforming Metropolis' civilians into alien-like creatures. Although other heroes, such as Flash, Green Lantern, Batman, and Superman, didn't undergo drastic physical changes, Brainiac still enhanced their DNA. However, Wonder Woman's clay-based composition, combined with her immunity to mind control, made her a formidable challenge for Brainiac.
Brainiac likely possessed a database on human and Kryptonian DNA, enabling him to manipulate it. He may have had some knowledge of the Amazons, but Wonder Woman's clay origin and ties to theGreek Goddesses made it harder for him to alter her physicality. This, combined with her immunity to mind control, proved to be the key factors that thwarted Brainiac's plans for Wonder Woman.
In the epic tale of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, Wonder Woman's immunity and connection to clay weave a captivating narrative. As she battles against the mind-controlled Justice League, her determination to find a non-lethal solution showcases her unwavering heroism. Despite the tragic outcome of her encounter with Superman, her sacrifice leaves a lasting impact.
The game's portrayal of Wonder Woman stays true to her classic origins, embracing the clay-based creation story that defined her character for decades. This nod to her past adds depth to the game's narrative and highlights Rocksteady's commitment to honoring her rich history.
Furthermore, Wonder Woman's resistance to mind control, granted by the Sight of Athena, showcases the unique abilities she possesses. While her other psychic powers may not be present in the game, her resilience against manipulation remains a core aspect of her character.
The combination of Wonder Woman's clay-based composition and her immunity to mind control sets her apart from her brainwashed allies. This captivating twist adds another layer of intrigue to the story, emphasizing the significance of her origin and the strength it grants her.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League takes players on a thrilling journey filled with action, drama, and unexpected revelations.
