    To continue with my controversial opinions.

    Atlantiades is the most interesting addition to Wonder Woman's cast since Rucka came up with Veronica Cale.

    I don't disagree with this assessment. I don't necessarily think Themyscira and Amazon society should be depicted as a utopia, but at the same time I think it should unambigiously be presented as a...

    Are some Amazons prejudiced? Sure. But so is everyone else. You, me, DiDio, Simone, Rucka, and whoever else you care to name.

    I want the Amazons to be recognised for having built a culture and...

    Depends on jurisdiction. And superhero worlds aren't generally running on the rule of law anyway.

    There already is one such that has been around for over a thousand years: Athos in Greece. And it's fine by me, even if I don't want to live there (for lots of reasons, starting with me not being a...

    For me, the question about having the Amazons be xenophobic is just absurd. Because they are not, and should not be. They just want to live without men. That to some degree makes them isolationist,...

    And not every sexist or misogynistic thought is conscious or comes from actual malicious intent. That doesn't stop it from being sexist or misogynistic, and damaging to other people.

    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.

    The simplest explanation I can come up with is that all the gods of love...

    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...
