    Not to blow us to far off-course, but, since this discussion forces us to ask what Diana's city should look or feel like, ..perhaps, we should ask another question. What existing city should this NEW...

    I guess I favor seeing Diana's iconic city incorporate the port city feel and weirdness of Gateway and the militarization and monuments of Washington DC, ..in one city. I think these things speak to...

    I think this is what Azzarello was going for, locating Diana in a nondescript high-rise apartment, in London. It was so nondescript that we never saw the façade of the building ..or a name. That she...

    Good point, we often forget! Being a 'Wonder' shouldn't be about being Amazon royalty ..or even a blood Amazon. While I prefer my Amazons, immortal, ..it's the Amazon training (ethics, martial skill,...

    The First Born's backstory, like Connor MacLeod's foe, the Kurgan's, is one that sets him on a fated collision, with the hero! I think it is one of the best origin stories for a WW villain.

    So, this would be an Invisible City! I love it. It's very, very weird, ..but, I love it.

    The other superheroes have somewhat generic, comic book cities. This city of yours would be markedly...

    I think you're dead-on, with that.

    Fans and writers really choose the arch, ..unless you're a Marvel Comic, in the Sixties or 70s, and you've got the excelsiorific Stan Lee for editor. Tio Stan...

    I'm not talking about Cheetah, as we might re-imagine her, but, the complex Cheetah that Rucka gave us. She was equally tragic and deliberate. She was not a victim to mourned or pitied.
