Example text

Modleski offers an answer. She points out that doubling in the gothic generally involves a woman from the past who has suffered. “Usually [the heroine] feels a strong identification with a woman from either the remote or the very recent past, a woman who in almost every case has died a mysterious and perhaps violent or gruesome death” (Loving 61). The doubling is, then, a doubling through time, a link between an older woman and a younger woman—a mother and a daughter. Thus, Modleski reasons, It is not only that women fear being like their mothers, sharing the same fate, but also that, in an important sense, they fear being their mothers—hence the emphasis on identity in physical appearance, the sensation of actually being possessed, the feeling that past and present are not merely similar but are “intertwined,” etc.

Perhaps the most telling detail in the panel, though, is what is left out. Only Pluto gets a speech bubble—Persephone’s mouth is open, but no sound emerges. There could not be a more eloquent way of saying that she is completely in his power and already in hell. In the comic, the story of Persephone is a flashback. It is related by Aphrodite to Wonder Woman and her mother, Hippolyte. Aphrodite also tells the two women that the rape of Persephone was not an isolated event. Pluto is still around, and he is still kidnapping and abusing women.

And then, on the next page, she sees Pluto leaving through the window, with the unconscious Steve over his shoulder. The desk falls over as 38 WONDER WOMAN Pluto leaves, and Peter shows it tipping with a semicircular motion line. The motion line, however, intersects the secretary’s head, so that it seems to be indicating her dizziness or her panic or even suggesting that the desk itself is hurtling toward her. In the next panel, Steve’s boss, Major Darnell, rushes in, and the secretary tells him what’s happened.
