    Compared to Batman, he is.

    Now, I get that this critique can be levied against other characters than Batman. But the alternative then should not be to critique the small fry (Green Arrow) while...

    It's a question of framing.

    If it's about "here we know more about the people that inspired the Amazons" I'm perfectly cool with that. And I'm sure there are elements there that could be used to...

    While I don't disagree that there are some very creepy undertones and undercurrents in the Batman character, especially the way he often is written, at some level he was—and to some degree might...

    To be fair, it's written by Tynion, who I've mostly read good things by, and seems to have a strong handle on the characterisation of most DC heroes. On the other hand, I think this is a variant...

    While obviously interesting, and could probably give some inspiration to the right writers for some out-of-continuity stories, I'm not sure why it's relevant to the Wonder Woman of today.

    To be fair to Lauren Faust, the archetypes she used for MLP:FIM are very, very old and can be found in lots of places. There is a rather convincing set of parallels between MLP, the Spice Girls, and...

    Interesting article, though I do note that little of it can be established as historical facts. It's more guesses—infromed ones—but we can't really say anything with certainty about the historical...

    On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of those people confuse Babs (Batgirl) with Kate (Batwoman).

    Sorry, have to call a citation needed on that one, and ask according to whom and what sources?

    While giving scope for exploring Diana as a queer character is part of it, to me there is an even more important element. Diana grew up in a society with entirely different views of sex and gender...

    I believe Poison Ivy might give Batwoman a match here. But I guess it goes how one defines "hero".

    Go ahead and count the number of straight white dudes having written Wonder Woman, compared to any other group. Heck, with all other groups combined.

    Do you want the best writers? Then you'd...

    Thanks for that ed2962. I knew a bit about Dolly Parton's values before, but I think it managed to tie a lot of pieces together and put them in context.

    Enjoyment is of course deeply subjective, but I think your criticism misses the mark a bit. Harleen is AFAIK the first real look at the character of Harleen Quinzel—as opposed to Harley Quinn—we have...
