Blackest Night Black Lantern Wonder Woman Action Figure by DC Direct

Thanks to ExperiencetheWonder.com, The Blot is proud to present a photo of the soon to be released Black Lantern Wonder Woman action figure. While The Blot has loved all of the Blackest Night action figures produced by DC Direct, I cannot figure out for the life of me why they made a Black Lantern Wonder Woman figure. She was literally a Black Lantern for less than one full issue!

The only thing I can think of is they wanted a “Big Gun” for Wave 4 (having already produced Black Lantern Superman and Batman figures). But I would have much rather seen a Star Sapphire Wonder Woman figure (see below) than this design. Especially when you consider Wonder Woman mighty actually be a Star Sapphire for multiple issues as opposed to her brief stint as a Black Lantern. Regardless, I do have to commend DC Direct for keeping this figure under wraps until the release of Blackest Night #6. No one can blame them for spoiling one of the major turning points in DC Comic's Blackest Night mini-series.
