    Barbara is literally the second person we see in the trailer, and is clearly set up as important to Diana. To me, it's rather clear that the Barbara-Diana relation is the most important one in the...

    Yup, and Nightwing had some great moments in Birds of Prey as well. Though now that I check, it was Chuck Dixon writing both of those books.

    I'd say that is a convenient excuse, but one that doesn't hold up. Off the top of my head, I can think of three or four novels with strong romance—or other important personal interactions—elements...

    *checks*

    From the looks of it, Demeter got some of Artemis's attributes there, but it's only a single run. I'd chalk those scenes up to gross stupidity on Rucka's and DC's part.

    Depends on what is meant by "made", but I think he was still around in the early scripting stages, and those are probably what matters here.

    Even if think that it's probable that they could easily...

    I think that's part of it, and partly it might have been a result of some variation of the Madonna complex. The "first man" problem was something easy to point to, but at the same time it's telling...

    I wouldn't call this movie campy. Sure, the excess that we see and the colours carry some of the elements of camp, but it's not held up as a source of comedy. Those elements are instead a backdrop...

    Some mixed thoughts on the trailer.

    What I liked:

    Plenty of 80s aesthetics, between music, costumes, and cars.

    Lots of lasso action, and the use of the thrown tiara. Also showing hints of...

    I'm not against it in principle, but I'd much rather see the stories exploring and use her gifts from Aphrodite, Hestia, Artemis, and Athena.

    That said, there are differences in degree here. Her...

    What gets me is the way the critique is framed. If it focused on the way that clothing for female superheroes is largely sexualised, that's a fair one. But if it's about how impractical it is, but...

    From a fighting standpoint, the sword that Diana normally uses is one that goes with a shield, so to me it makes sense that Diana busts out the shield whenever she uses her sword. The same is true...

    For what it's worth, I think the main value of the rules should be to help new people who want to participate get started, and to provide some guide to first-time admins of the weekly contest.
