    I'd prefer that Steve isn't invited to Themyscira. He might end up there now and again, but it's something that should be used very sparingly and in extreme situations, and preferably when most of...

    You're conflating a specific instance (in a movie, where the actor plays a huge role) with all of the character history. Lois Lane's position in the DC pantheon is arguably stronger than most...

    That's a Marston invention.

    I'm open for the girdle having some other role or function (in Greek myth it's largely a McGuffin), but I think it's important that Hippolyta does wear a golden girdle.

    The girdle of Hippolyte is one of those details that has been carried since classical times, and I'd be loath to drop it. However, it need not be an item of strength—that seems to be an invention by...

    There is nothing wrong with pushing Batman, Harley Quinn, or other successes. In fact, it's the right thing to do: reinforce success.
