    I already know you won't believe me, but I really didn't bring up Batman as an ad hominem. I was just using him as an example of how character flaws are only as good as the writing, and many...

    I prefer Diana to be the only child. I like that, as much as she's loved and accepted by her fellow Amazons, there is that element of separation to her. It also adds to Hippolyta's protectiveness of...

    Oof, this thread went off the rails.

    For my money...power levels are relevant to a character's appeal. For me, one of the appeals of Wonder Woman is that she's an upper-echelon powerhouse which...

    I've been seeing speculation Zara isn't really herself and someone is impersonating or controlling her. Either way, I'm wagering Diana tries reason or attempts to stop her herself and gets put down....

    Artemis usually refers to her as "little sister." It's meant to be teasing, because Diana is often older than her regardless of continuity.

    That's a good point, and I agree. I don't want non-WW characters showing up in her movies, so it would only be fair she don't take up space in others.

    Wonder Woman in the DCEU

    Yeah. And a lot of them--particularly team books and crossover events--suck for the exact reason I said.
