    Plenty of delightful (and some very male gaze-y ones) covers. I'm going with PaulBullion, and Batman's sudden realisation that he is in a very gay genre.

    To add to that, claiming Diana isn't fully human would require making the same claim about Adam, and lots of other mythological progenitors.

    Some of you might remember the bubblegum pop band Aqua. Their big hit was Barbie Girl. A comment from a friend of mine led to the following crackfilk in relation to the movie:

    To be honest, I don't care how tall Catwoman is. She needs to be able to present as sensual and elegant and with a lot of presence. Length can help there, but it's not a requirement. Her skills as a...

    What Agent Z said. The original Marston stories probably only used the Diana Prince identity because it was expected of the superhero stories of its time, and as a way to insert cheap relationship...

    Absolutely is pushing it too much. There are various ways to have Diana be on a different level than the rest of the Amazons and still have the contest work. One key here is that the other Amazons...

    To me, the idea of Hippolyta being angry at Diana long-term just reeks of cheap drama, and it makes one of Wonder Woman's most important supporting characters one-dimensional, and robs her of her...

    It's interesting how a story which is so very back-to-basics can still feel so relevant and modern. This is really a careful restoration and examination of Superman and his supporting cast, and oddly...

    On the other hand, it came straight out of nowhere. I mean, was Wonder Woman even mentioned any time before her arm showed up? I think Cooke handled the same dynamic—Batman and Superman fighting, and...

    In a way, I think I prefer a Catwoman who has a vague and undecided past. She is a cat, mysterious and impossible to pin down. Always going her own way, always living in the now.

    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...
