    I think they protray Steve as a womanizer and Diana as a man hater to give them character flaws.

    Well, he is the God OF War. Being the god of anything essentially makes you a living, breathing stereotype.
    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Not necessarily, and there are nuances even in stereotypes. Azzarello's Ares was at least somewhat interesting, and a different take on the idea of a god of war. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett gives another approach, though they did it as satirical comedy which makes it somewhat easier to work with and against the stereotypes.

    Wilson's Ares seems like it will be another good example, where she plays up not so much his anger and destructive tendencies, but rather ties it into being short-tempered and impulsive, which is another trait of the mythological Ares which few writers have latched into earlier. Tim Hanley's review of #60 was the one which guided me to this.

    Yes, but Azzarello wasn't telling an origin story of Wonder Woman. The animated movie's character isn't any more or less generic than the one in the first six issues of the Perez series. Wilson also has the advantage of building on groundwork laid by Rucka.

    The art on this issue was atrocious. There was one or two good panels but the rest looked like bad sin city art
    Stick "we work together and we get out of here alive"
