    While Xenafication is a handy word to describe some of the development around Diana, I doubt one can attribute it to Xena. The increased association with mythology started with Pérez, and there are...

    For what it's worth, I think the main value of the rules should be to help new people who want to participate get started, and to provide some guide to first-time admins of the weekly contest.

    Two proposals for updating the cover contest rules:

    A:

    2) Cover must be from a Published Comic (single issue, album, graphic novel, or collection)!

    B:

    Move rule (7) to (3), and change the...

    One of the things I think Frank Miller got right in his Superman Year One was to present Lex Luthor as deeply misogynistic. One side effect of that he will always underestimate Diana. He might say...

    I don't think one can point to one single big reason, rather there are plenty of small reasons.

    One reason is that for a lot of writers I think the heroine wielding a sword and shield is safer and...

    A striking and understated cover: seismic-2.

    Looking at the preview, Morrison is trying to be seriously meta here.

    But you can't critique edgelordiness by being more edgelordy. It will simply stuff more edgelordiness onto the pile. I think...

    Perhaps I expressed myself poorly. Cheetah's new motivation is simply dropped in, without any explanation why or how it changed from the end of Rucka's run to the start of Orlando's run. Wilson's...

    I'm a fan of having Cassie be relatively untrained. Lots of raw power (from whatever source), but no Amazon training. Donna should be the opposite to me: a normal human who received a systematic...

    To me, adding powers is generally a poor idea. For one, it leads to power inflation, which has been a big problem throughout the history of superhero comics. For another, more powers doesn't tend to...

    I'd say there is ample precedent that Diana is highly resistant to magic and mind control in normal cases, and that when she ties herself with her lasso (like Simone had her do in "A Murder of...

    There are plenty of Wonder Woman villains that are either not tied to, or need not be tied to Greek mythology. Doctor Psycho, Veronica Cale/Paula von Gunther, Cheetah, Silver Swan, Doctor Poison,...

    I think one has to be reasonably clear on what is meant by patriotism in a discussion like this, because it's a complex and changing pattern.

    There are some fun pieces of Messner-Loeb's run. The first space adventure was a fun romp, though the plotting felt seriously made up as he went along. The Taco Whiz situation was nonsensical, but he...

    I know that I should be careful about not interpreting Orlando's words too negatively and I truly think he wants to do well by Diana and the title. But some things stick out to me in the interview.

    The movie showed one great bullets-and-bracelets move that really could have been emphaised more, when she deflects the bullet back onto Ludendorff's pistol. Do that type of stunt on a semi-regular...

    I'd say she was floating in the air after blasting Ares, and might have been flying in the end shot (though that can be interpreted as only a mighty jump). But in both cases it's open to...
