Unlike the Disney adaptation of Snow White, the original fairy-tale penned by the Grim Brothers has a much more gruesome ending. At the end, the wicked queen is punished for trying to kill Snow White. She receives an invitation to Snow and the prince’s wedding where she is presented with a pair of red-hot iron shoes and is forced to dance until she drops dead.
Designate for assignment (DFA): A player is designated for assignment when he is removed from the 40-man roster to make room for a different player. Once a team DFAs a player, it has 10 days to trade him, release him or place him on waivers. If the player clears waivers, he can then be outrighted to the minor leagues.
Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, is pretty well known as Wonder Woman’s (princess Diana) mother. Diana’s father however, is a bit more complicated. In George Perez’ reboot of Wonder Woman comics in 1987, he followed parts of the 1942 origin story, including Wonder Woman being sculpted by Hippolyta from clay and brought to life by the gods. In Brian Azzarello’s New 52 run beginning in 2011 however, it was revealed that Zeus is Diana’s father, making her a demigod. Greg Rucka however removed that part from her origin in Rebirth (2016). A year later however, James Robinson rewrote the mythos of Zeus being Wonder Woman’s father into her story.
