    Not necessarily, but they are a huge outside factor that govern what type of readers you get, what type of visibility you have from "mainstream" society, and what storytelling formats to use. A shift...

    Yeah, but I think it's in bad taste to complain about a (potentially) good story just because it was not published in The Right Way.

    The complaint shouldn't be that DC's main editorial line drops...

    A saint is probably a bit much, but there is an element of truth here. But I don't think it has much to do with popularity per se. Rather, once a side character gets popular and there is a push to...

    Why not?

    And who cares about the "main continuity". It far too seldom manages to say anything new or interesting about Wonder Woman. At least DC Young manages to do so with regularity.
