    I didn't read any DC from 2012 to 2016, and don't read nearly as much as I used to.

    Not nearly as good as the 2009 Wonder Woman. You miss the wit of Simone's writing, the references to Ninotchka, the semi-coherent plot.

    I really didn't want another origin story.

    I will admit I was pleasantly surprised. I was not fond of Wonder Woman's appearing in a book called 'Justice League Dark', or having her hobnobbing with John Constantine. Constantine's presence in...

    This. 'Amazons' should be like Kryptonians or Daxamites, members of a race with inherent high level superpowers. Diana is first among equals among them, not set aside with special advantages unique...

    When DiDio greenlit the Azzarello Wonder Woman run, he managed to destroy 35+ years of DC readership and fandom in the pages of a single title. Since then, the vandalism has mostly been repaired,...

    Diana can talk to animals and get useful information from them. Cheetah should have an ability to summon, enrage and control wild animals and send them on destructive sprees. Rather like an evil,...

    There's a big difference between the two origins, though. Superman was thrown out of his Utopia as a baby. Wonder Woman makes an adult, knowing decision to leave hers behind and venture out into a...

    Rather, the character is supposed to be a product of a utopian society, and contemporary culture is not very accepting of, too suspicious of utopias. Ursula LeGuin nailed it: for contemporaries to...

    Finally saw it. Not a big fan of her characterization. She pulls out the sword in the middle of a city street and attacks Jessica Cruz in an attempt to make her step up to the plate. This seemed...
