  2. There is a truth to it, in that fundamentally...

    There is a truth to it, in that fundamentally Wonder Woman is about changing society, and a lot of the writers (and editors) of DC have a poor imagination of a changed society, and a lot of them also...

    Good question! Note that this will be unfinished, sometimes ambigious, and not necessarily the same elements that other people will see.

    One is the all-woman utopia of the Amazons. Scratch that a...

    Interesting observation, because modern Batman is an extremely political figure to me. Though that is perhaps part of it: part of the "public persona" of modern reactionary conservatism is to deny it...

    I disagree here, on several different grounds.

    First, a lot of the fictional characters were created to not act in a specific time, but to act in the "now". That the old "now" now is in the past...

    Superman is relatively easy to update in an origin story today: just have him meet and be inspired by a pro (or semi-pro) wrestler rather than a circus strongman.

    The article doesn't really matter here. The memos—and they were sent officially to THR by the highest level of Warnermedia—matter a lot more. The memos make no reference to any specific cases, just...

    Agreed.

    I think most of DC's big names are sturdy enough thematically that they will work in today's society, as well as many other periods.

    When it comes to Wonder Woman and feminism, I think...

    In some ways Jemisin would be beyond perfect. A superior stylist who also is extremely woke and a great world-builder, and who is more than capable of complex plotting.

    But she is at a stage in...

    Interesting! Thanks for pointing out that issue!

    There should definitely be enough material for a nice overview and discussion of the bracelets.

    *checks* It's not sourced there.

    Might be something to look for in Marston's (and Joye Hemmel's) run.

    ETA: Found a digital copy of Comic Cavalcade #14, which details the consequences of an...

    I don't remember that being any part of Marston's Golden Age run, at least not as far as I have read. The only similar thing mentioned is that if her bracelets are chained or tied together by a man,...

    There are things to like in Wonder Woman Dead Earth. The art is very well suited to the mood, the action is generally well done, and it is without a doubt a quality grimdark story.

    But it's not a...

    Chalk me down for placing Diana in Washington DC, if she is to be stationed in America. It's where she started back in the day, and where Rebirth placed her. As a character with a focus on diplomacy...

    Oh, Fisher could quit at any time. But I think he wants WB to change its practices, and possibly make it easier for other badly treated actors (or other people in the film industry) to be aware that...

    From what I understand, Fisher has a background in blue collar jobs and unions, so I think it's quite possible that's part of his motivation.



    Nice derailing here, bringing up a malicious...

    Legend of Wonder Woman by Renae de Liz went that way, but I didn't like it. There is an association that being unable to have children makes you less of a woman or even human, and I'd like to avoid...

    I think it can be safely assumed that the Pérezian Amazons had rather different views of family and close relationships than modern English usage presupposes. Now, the Amazons are very much...

    Ares is raw aggression. Athena is preparation and planning.

    There are lots of things that goes into who gets a contract in a situation like DC's (or Marvel's—Image is rather different and much more similar to classic book publishing here).
