The Invisible Jet’s Final Form Is MUCH Stranger Than a Plane

0

John Byrne’s run on Wonder Woman introduced a very different Invisible Jet, which later took on another form before making the ultimate sacrifice.

Wonder Woman has always been one of the premiere superheroines in the DC Universe and comic books in general, and this only became more obvious after Crisis on Infinite Earths. An acclaimed reboot by writer/artist George Perez updated and upgraded the Amazon Princess, making her stronger than ever and giving her the power of true flight.

This meant doing away with her traditional Invisible Jet for the longest while, though it did eventually come back. John Byrne’s run on Wonder Woman introduced a very different Invisible Jet, which later took on another form before making the ultimate sacrifice. Here’s how Diana’s Invisible Plane kept transforming.

The Lansinarian Morphing Disk

The creature that would become the modern version of the Invisible Jet debuted in Wonder Woman #115, where it was introduced by legendary creator John Byrne. This creature was an alien that resembled a crystal egg that had become separated from its family while traversing the galaxy. It eventually came into contact with the Lansinarians, who were a race of blind creatures that lived underground on Earth. The crystal egg/disk creature had shapeshifting powers, which it used to help the Lansinarians and accommodate their lack of sight.

The Lansinarians later give the creature, in the form of a jet, to Wonder Woman as a reward for saving them, though she didn’t realize at first that it was in fact alive. Upon discovering this, she would have it take several forms, including chariots and other vehicle, all of which had the power to cloak themselves and their occupants with invisibility. Wonder Woman’s own use of the vehicle was rather questionable due to her incredible speed and Post-Crisis ability to fly, both granted by the Greek god Hermes. Her mother Hippolyta, however, lacked the power to fly, and used the Lansinarian Morphing Disk herself when she masqueraded as the “Golden Age” Wonder Woman upon traveling back to the past. This was Byrne’s way of essentially bringing Wonder Woman’s Pre-Crisis history with the Justice Society back into continuity. Hippolyta would transform it back into its small disk form for easier transportation whenever she wasn’t flying it in plane form.

The Wonder Dome

The Invisible Jet would eventually form a personality of its own, asserting its sentience and even communicating with Wonder Woman. This personality would be taken advantage of by a villain, who manipulated the Lansinarian Morphing Disk into turning against Diana for seemingly being ignored as a sentient being. Upon realizing what it had done, however, the Lansinarian regretted its actions and tried to repay Wonder Woman by becoming a flying fortified city above Wonder Woman’s recent home of Gateway City. This form was known as the WonderDome, and it functioned much in the same way as Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. It would also help to rebuild Themyscira after it was ravaged by the assault of Imperiex.

Sadly, the WonderDome wouldn’t last very long, and it was quickly done away with in Greg Rucka’s run on the character. This story involved the Lansinarian sacrificing itself by extending its shapeshifting powers beyond limits in order to save thousands from a natural disaster. This exhausted the creature’s consciousness, and it was now stuck in the form of a lifeless, non-sentient plane. This meant that for the rest of the Post-Crisis era, Wonder Woman essentially rode in the corpse of a dead friend whenever she flew her Invisible Jet. Since then, the Invisible Jet has again gone into obscurity, and though it’s occasionally brought back for nostalgia’s sake, the Lansinarian is so far gone for good.
