    There are pieces of the mythological Amazons that I'd like to see integrated. Top of the list is the first Temple of Artemis in Ephesus, which Callimachus credits to the Amazons. That implies a lot...

    My take on the Greek mythology is that it should be a source of inspiration, but not taken as a given. Generally, I find that Greek mythology stories in Wonder Woman works best when it is viewed...

    Issue #1 is part of Catwoman a Celebration of 75 Years, so I read it there. It's a very noir tale with Selina as a prostitute, but it didn't really feel like Catwoman to me, and as a story it was far...

    I like that Diana doesn't have a secret identity. It makes her different from the other heroes, and makes it possible for the comic to discuss the issues that can arise from being a very famous or...

    I think there was a thread over in the Marvel forum that touched upon these questions. I think Relugus has some good points, but I don't think Marvel is inherently more misogynistic than DC (or vice...

    So when did the Amazons (outside of possibly Azzarello's run) import men held in chains? Or promised them jobs, only to put them in sweat shops and company towns?

    Not everyone is on the same scale on how they think the Amazons should be depicted and how to handle them, that's why I said "tendency".

    Just as I find the current emphasis on both Steve and Etta as soldiers to be misguided, I find the emphasis on the Amazons as a warrior culture. Perhaps even more so.
