    Everyone can be sexist, at least some of the time.

    To me, the idea of making the Amazons misandric or xenophobic goes counter to everything that Diana should stand for, as it fundamentally changes...

    While correct, it has also been rather fundamentally proven that no movies manage to increase sales of comics, or at least not of floppies. But that's because the floppies are sold on such an...

    Yes, that's another model, but it's much more common in comedic comics. Andy Capp is probably the most typical example, but there are doubtless more. But it's not common in superhero or action...

    Lots of small and contributing reasons, and Agent Z covered some of them. To that I'd add that Steve and Diana are constructed rather differently than Lois and Clark/Superman, and patriarchal...

    Any call for xenophobic Amazons is a result of misogyny and the way patriarchal privilege rejects any idea of society not centered around men.

    We're getting far off-topic there, but I'd say the problems with xenophobia and radical exclusionary nationalism are worse in the New World than in Europe. The USA is looking like it is in the midst...

    Well, Wilson obviously had it give ramifications over the rest of the world, so any explanation will have to consider that.

    I don't think you can infer that female characters became more popular in the 1990s simply by counting titles, partly because the number of individual titles rose substantially, partly because a lot...

    Your preconceptions are showing. Women were hardly an "uninterested demographic" when it came to the Wonder Woman movie.

    And comics of the 40s (when Wonder Woman was created) were a lot more...

    Yeah, it's hard to get what DeConnick (or Rucka) were driving at there. There certainly were issues with how the Amazons were portrayed in the movie, but a lot of these things have to do with time...

    Trouble is, Wonder Woman has been well south of 50,000 orders for a long time now, so whose head is gonna roll? Add to that the way that DC and Marvel are sold has for a long time adapted itself to...

    I liked the idea of having Sue operate in a spy adventure, and I think Waid has managed to characterise her decently enough (with only some few missteps on the way). But the plotting here is just...

    There were some discussion about the Mera, Catwoman, and Raven books, but not that much. But the people who read them tended to like them. Haven't seen much discussion about the Harley Quinn book.

    I'm getting more than a little set of preconceptions here, like that having Steve leave the military would be to "nerf" him, or that softness and gentleness shouldn't be desirable traits for a man?
