    We here are most decidely not the target market for any of DC's YA or kids stuff. I'm sure they'll be happy to sell them to people like us, but if they only reach people like us the project will have...

    Riv86672, Uncle Scrooge's attitude is great there.

    Honourable mention to Kai "the spy", but I can't bring myself to vote for what is essentially a rape fantasy.

    That really depends on the writer, and on DC allowing the other characters to shine. For all that I disliked the direction that Jody Houser had to take Harley and Ivy in the recent mini, she...

    Good to see Amy Chu return to Ivy, even if only for a one-shot!

    I'm definitely of two minds about the Future State backup stories with Gotham City Sirens. For one, it's nice to see a return to the...

    Yeah, but remember that it was Patty Jenkins and her team who pushed for a summer of 2020 release because she didn't want to be in danger of rushing post-production. Now, it appears that the script...

    When I said good/bad I was more thinking of them being treated as inherently good or bad: God is good because he's god. The devil is bad because he's the devil. Batman is good because he's a hero....

    True to a degree. But this partially comes down to the difference between the role the gods have in myths and the role have in worship (though there is overlap). Today, our only relation to the Greek...

    Congratulations ed2962, and thanks to seismic-2 for the vote!

    I remember during my military service that we managed to map most of our officers to characters from Beetle Bailey.

    The key here is to go from thinking good/bad to thinking forces. Depending on context, Diana might have to treat a god as an antagonist or an ally. I think that Pérez missed a golden opportunity in...

    I think it's more to fair say that the Greek myths in general were rather misogynistic, and also that many of the gods and goddesses are more akin to forces and themes than simply good or bad. To...

    Hopefully the powers that be have enough sense to write the HBO Max contract in such a way that they can place it on other streaming networks in places where HBO Max doesn't have a presence. I know...

    In some ways, this feels like a throwback to Golden Age Wonder Woman. Not much of a world-building, more focus on Diana trying to solve the problem rather than punching her way through it, hardly any...

    Yeah. One could probably make a statistical study of the number of women (or other disenfranchised groups) who appear in supporting roles in women-led (equivalent) titles, and compare how men...

    I don't think it's fast at all. Rather, I believe this is how it will be, from this time on: a character is developed deep within the bowels of DC/WB/CW, and then you get more or less simultaneous...

    Yeah, that is another angle at this, but I think a lot depends on what the focus is, and why there is a change.

    Things like the attributes of the mythological characters should be largely left...

    Doesn't this sort of center Clark? Clark is the passing other, while Superman is the other.

    I think Wolfman's Man and Superman and Yangs Superman Smashes the Klan are good examples here. Both put...

    For a character like Marvel Thor, I'd agree. But Wonder Woman was born out of ideology.

    Agreed with both of these.

    I'd also add that there is another element, and that is what type of stories to tell. A lot of the early superhero stories center around helping, protecting, and...
