    kjn replied to a thread Steve in Wonder Woman

    You're conflating a specific instance (in a movie, where the actor plays a huge role) with all of the character history. Lois Lane's position in the...

    That's a Marston invention. I'm open for the girdle having some other role or function (in Greek myth it's largely a McGuffin), but I think it's...

    kjn replied to a thread Hippoltya in Wonder Woman
    The girdle of Hippolyte is one of those details that has been carried since classical times, and I'd be loath to drop it. However, it need not be an...

    At the same time, I think it's much easier to fix plotting and pacing issues using collaboration with a good editor and a good artist, than it is to...

    Exactly. There is nothing wrong with pushing Batman, Harley Quinn, or other successes. In fact, it's the right thing to do: reinforce success. ...

    Exactly, and I think we are entirely on the same page here. It also gives an opening for humour and levity in the comics than is different from...

    I'd put Doctor Psycho a lot higher on that list. He should score very high both on ideological opposition to Wonder Woman, personal animus against...

    Tsujihara stepped down in March, so it's not really recent news. I sure hope WB can move away from that culture of in-fighting and conspiracy at...

    Yeah, Marston's Diana had a rather earthy aspect, and I think it's a pity it's been lost. I do think there are more than a few writers who could do...
