    I don't believe that Ivy's more sympathetic sides were developed with any form of plan from DC's editorial. Instead, different writers picked up different elements and developed them, and made the...

    Sad news. Seems like we won't see a Harleen followup, apart from an (I believe) newly completed short tie-in story.



    As for the reasons:

    I might have done a bit of misdirecting here with earlier choice of words.

    What I wish to see is using some of Marston's themes and possibly scenarios, and revisit them with our modern-day...

    Oh, Ivy started to gain a dedicated following and become less of a one-dimensional villain before Harley Quinn became pushed into her current status as "hero". "Pavane" (1988) started to look closer...

    Not directly, no. But I think writers who emphasis on the sword are also writers who would deemphasise Diana's other characteristics and powers.

    I think you're doing both Marston and feminist theory a disservice here. The response to the outdated elements—and I readily admit that they are many—in Marston's Wonder Woman shouldn't be to negate...

    With Ivy, I think you have the causality backwards. I think Ivy became a lot more popular among new groups as her motivations and characterisation was deepened, and she became more of a tragic hero.

    So why the Batman '66 tribute?



    A little, but not nearly enough. "Addicted to Trouble" came to closest, but even that placed her more as a perennial troublemaker rather than someone playful.

    Her walking up the ladder from the trench.

    Why was this even published?

    The villains were uninteresting racist stereotypes. The plotting was incoherent. Characterisation was either uninteresting or bad. The art and the plot felt like they...

    AIUI, these digital books were using the original material from the DC Giant (formerly the Walmart books), and they simply ran out of new Wonder Woman stories from them.

    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...
