    Yes, because sexuality—on her own terms—is part of Wonder Woman's character. I'm not talking suggestive poses with giant boobs here (even if you can find plenty of that in Wonder Woman's history)....

    While it could work, I doubt it can do with the current leadership at DC, and the puritanism that seems to pervade their corporate culture. It'd also require the right writer, and would be a rather...

    Please check the thread before posting older news like this. In this case, we even have comments from Sejic himself, as well as discussions about his original tweets.

    You might disagree with how Wilson used the gods, but what I'm talking about here is much more their portrayal in the form of personality and effects.

    I think there are problems in several different directions with how Greek mythology is used in Wonder Woman.

    To a degree I can agree about overuse, but I'd argue it's not simply overuse. It's both...

    Huh. That's more than I know, and I haven't read Spretnak's book so can't comment on how or if it was used.

    Oh, I think Conner and Palmiotti has a decent grasp of Wonder Woman lore. They often (or at least far more often than other writers) include Diana's ability to communicate with animals, and have...

    I don't know anything about Geoff Johns, so I can't say anything about those rumours as they pertain to him. But I do think that there are a couple of general psychological mechanisms at play here.

    Sad to say, I'm starting to get some bad vibes about this project.

    Now, in size it's similar to Stjepan Sejic's concept of Harleen, but he set it up as three rather different story arcs that could...

    Never, in the general sense.

    However, in the specific case of Wonder Woman, the sword isn't her primary and iconic weapon: it's the lasso. Now, the lasso can also be written badly, but to me the...

    I think the only way to do so is to get editors on Wonder Woman who groks Diana. Right now the mainline DC editors seems to be people who reject Diana's feminist values.

    There is one strength with having Diana's powers at least partly be connected with her birth, and it was made explicit by Pérez in "Legacy" (Wonder Woman v2 #45) where he explicitly connected Diana...

    The peacock is one of the animals that Hera is associated with. Most likely it's a case of drawing from the same sources, that is the original Greek mythology.

    Being upset doesn't imply making a "big stink", and what we have here is Jon Berg's interpretation of the event. I don't see Berg as an impartial witness here.

    When it comes to the "Booyah" thing, it's not from Fisher, but from Berg, who seems to be set to be on Whedon's side here.

    Here I'm reminded of Eugene Brave Rock in Wonder Woman. He didn't like...
