    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    What ed2962 said. Science fiction fandom is sort of the grandmother of all modern fandoms. Creaky, but still reasonably vital and around. People like Julie Schwarz, Isaac Asimov, Alfred Bester, and...

    That's the long-term trouble for these movements. They are dependant on having enemies to point to that they can gain success against. But once they get an effective rap against the current...

    I try to take a holistic view of characters.

    For movie Diana, her assuming the Diana Prince identity and working at the Louvre makes sense. After defeating Ares, she is left without a mission in...

    Ah, I misremembered about the question from the trans woman. Thanks for pointing that out.

    However, I still think the exchange is rather weakly depicted by Morrison and Paquette.

    The trouble with the "wokeness" of Morrison's Earth One is two-fold.

    The first is that it is largely superficial. Steve Trevor is made a black man, but the only thing that results in is some...

    Welcome!

    I do think that looking at Batman and Catwoman requires that one looks beyond the simple good-evil dichotomy that largely dominates a lot of superhero comics. Catwoman isn't so much a...

    Agreed. However, I'd posit that to push Diana into "not helping" would be even harder than to push your average hero into the same stance. Like in the movie, "not helping" would come at a clear...

    That Frison cover is wonderful.

    Meanwhile, the Amazons are made into helpless mooks, Themyscira is batted around as a pingpong ball, Diana is doubting herself after Wilson carefully built up the...

    Oh, I'm not doubting you, more that I checked the thread title and it says #85 / #750, but when I checked I didn't find anything relating to #85 from DC. So I guess they did their count correctly.

    Complicating the lives of a character is part of storytelling, yes, but it must also be done with a keen awareness of the character. Just applying the same methods, tropes, and takes to each and...

    They never managed to make their old site GDPR compliant. So to not open up themselves for a potential lawsuit from the EU, they blocked all visitors from European IP addresses.

    Agree.

    I think the problem isn't so much that Wonder Woman's origin story gets retold, as that (a) there is a lack of other Wonder Woman stories, (b) that a lot of the retellings are poor.
