The bracelets are iconic yes. But she doesn't need a weakness to bullets to use them.
    But why would she use them if she doesn't need to? I mean, if we're going to get rid of silly things from the Golden Age, I think this needs to be one of them.

    Yeah, I guess that's just my thing. I'd rather her be more skilled than simply more powerful, TBH.

    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.

    Well, to be fair, most criminals generally aim for the chest. It's simply the biggest target on a person to hit. It's not like people are aiming for WW's bracelets. She has to actively make an effort to use those things (which is silly when she really doesn't have to, apparently). Supes just has to stand there.

    Superman's still wearing his blankie as a cape. Some silly things can be kept.

    Well why bother shooting him at all then? Because it's cool to see. Same thing with the bracelets.

    The thing is, there are so many weapons and powers that are *more* powerful than bullets in comics these days that there are plenty of things she can still deflect; heat beams, lasers, solar blasts, electric bolts, etc.

    The other reason to deflect is to control where the bullets end up, btw. Rather than risk them going past her and striking another hero (one who isn't bulletproof or isn't wearing Kevlar or...wait, nevermind ) or a bystander by mistake (i.e. Superman's ricochet that hit her in the throat) She has already shown immense skill at being able to not just block but to redirect with ridiculous accuracy (see movie - deflecting a bullet back down the barrel of the gun it just came from)

    It's a matter of scale, and for 99% of heroes in the DCU anymore, bullets just aren't a threat because they've been upscaled in power, armor or healing capabilities. I like Rucka's 'shot through the chest but back up a second later' approach - it hurts, but they aren't lethal.

    New trailer for the DC Super Hero Girls reboot seems to have an alternate application for the bracelets: she can change in and out of her costume with them.

    I think if they want Diana to be a demigoddess why not have Hippoltya be the daughter of Ares? Now both Ares and Harmonia were gods. So has to why they became human could simply be because Ares took away they God status. Now not all of the Amazons just Hippoltya and her sisters. That or Ares can still have a relationship with a human
    Please sign this so we can at least show DC we want Legend of Wonder Woman part 2.

    Wonder Woman has has displayed more personality in the clip than the last 5 years of the mainline continuity.
