    Default Should DC kill off Diana in an epic manner and pass the Wonder Woman mantle..

    Well DC did kill her off quietly in the 90s while Hippolyta took the mantle but then just as quietly and quickly brought Diana back to make an impact.

    However, they are other characters like Captain Marvel and Flash who have successfully passed the mantle that their successors have become more popular than them.

    Should DC instead of hard and soft rebooting her every couple of years just kill her off in an epic manner or give her Godhood and pass the mantle to a new character?

    They could but it feels pointless. How many characters are there that could legitimately take her mantle like Wally West and Dick Grayson have? Donna? Eh I guess they could do a Death of Superman story and have several new characters vie for her legacy. I think something like this can only be done if WW has a consistent mythos going forward because killing of Wonder Woman to me just feels like it wouldn't work like it did when Batman and Superman were killed.

    That said, there could be an amazing story with your premise. Anything is possible but I'm skeptical that it's a good idea
    DC, hurry up and make your own version of Marvel Unlimited!

    No me gusta. I still feel like we have SO MANY stories of Wonder that we haven’t gotten to yet with Diana.

    No. I just plain hate this practice. Only in extreme circumstances should it ever be used. Not everything needs to be a legacy identity just because. This would be a just because scenario. The Flash became what it became for a reason. Diana is not in the place Barry Allen was before the original Crisis. True her book has never been a fantastic seller, but the character herself if anything is becoming more popular today, not less.

    The aren't doing anything epic with her while she is alive. What makes you think think they'd do something epic for a kill off?

    No. Legacy can be great at times (Wally, the JSA legacies), but it is foolish to apply it to every franchise and character and expect the same results. Wonder Woman is too big. It will always be Diana, people love WW for her, not just the title and costume. Even if the replacement was well received for a time, Diana would inevtiably come back to reclaim her title. We've seen it happen even with Barry, who is not as big as she is. And then we'd get tedious fandom wars over who should be THE Wonder Woman.

    No thanks. This franchise has enough problems without adding that headache to it.
