    Definitely something that worked in past times, and that easily can be made to work again, as both Legends of Wonder Woman and Earth One showed. The concept of "mortal" sidekicks is seriously...

    MRP has already hit all of the main points here, but I do have a couple small points to add.

    One is that at least DC's senior leadership, at least until quite recently, was dominated by people who...

    Hestia, who is so criminally underused that Rucka forgot about her.

    JLA: A League of One is very good, but it loses out to Hiketeia in that the story isn't really tied to Diana—it could be repurposed to just about any superhero.

    Hiketeia, without a doubt.

    It puts Diana's values and ethics front and center, and crashes them into the modern world. It crashes classic mythology into the modern world as well. It is one of the...
