    That sounds like William Messner Loebs to me, not George Perez. As beautiful as the stories themselves were, the way Perez wrote Diana was very very serious. I don't remember a single moment of humor...

    I'm curious about what the "Wonder" in "Wonder Woman" means to most people. The fact that Marston was convinced to change her name from Superia to Wonder Woman, is one of the most fortunate things to...

    I don't mean WWE, I mean real wrestling, where your goal isn't to punch, it's to incapacitate the other person. Not just a show of grace, but also of your comfortable power. And yes, the lasso is a...

    One of my issues with the lasso is that I think it puts her into the wrong archetype. Diana shouldn't be a warrior, she should be a wrestler. She doesn't seek to attack, she seeka to dominate. Or at...

    Yup. Heck, Ghost Rider has a weapon very similar to Diana's lasso and nobody ever thinks he needs to use any other weapon.

    That's really good. Anything you can do with chains you should be able to do with the lasso. Most of all though, Diana should be a wrestler trying to dominate, not a warrior trying to attack.

    I'm not a fan of the Barbara Minerva version of Cheetah. One of the reasons why is because I don't think it's very visually interesting in fights. My idea is to revamp Priscilla Rich into someone...

    Ans to be clear, I don't consider a lasso with differenr powers to be good enough of a change. A lasso made of lightning still works like Diana's lasso of truth. The point is that each character...

    Not wanting to give a discount to a huge hollywood production means being a dick? You can say that it was a bad strategy, but it was totally fair and righteous. I still wish the movie was made though.

    Follow up, I wonder if people think Ghost Rider should use a sword. Ghost Rider's chains are used in such badass ways but for some reason people here think a sword is more dynamic than a magical rope.

    She is the kind of person that brings a lasso to a gun fight. A lasso that reveals the truth (regardless of how its powers work)

    The lasso is the physical embodiment of her beliefs. It's not about "tradition" or "rituals". Any scene where Diana uses a sword is far more interesting if she solves that problem with her bare hands...
