    Diana Trevor(Steve’s mom) much like her son crashed landed. She helped the Amazons fight doing the doom gate and died. Due to this Hippolyta names Diana due to Steve’s mom

    Oh yeah, that's ringing a bell now, thanks for the reminder.

    Yeah, hard pass from me on that. I generally dislike it when connections are retroactively added into a character's backstory. I tend to really hate the whole "Oh, you thought it was this, but all these years you never knew it was actually that!" or the "here's the childhood friend you've never heard of before who was always there but somehow off-panel and now they're a villain! Oh noes!" stuff.

    The only reason why I said that is I actually think it would be nice not to have Diana name after a God but someone the Amazons respect. But yea. Also, I do think Steve should hold his own on some of Diana's foe. Maybe even surprise Cheetah a few times. Not winning but just hold his own. For example, Diana gave Steve some of her magical items. He trains with them and uses them on her. I mean what if Steve uses the atlas sandals or a few others.

    It's difficult to give a supporting character long-lasting development in today's stories, especially since Wonder Woman hasn't been given a strong foundation compared to the other two in the trinity of heroes. They keep half-assing Diana's development, so they'll do even worse with Steve.

    If Steve is to be a conservative. What would some of his views be? Especially if it’s to conflict with Diana’s?

    Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never known a conservative with a personality I’ve liked personally

    I’d start with the qualities that Diana admires in him and go from there. He’s a normal human willing to fight for noble causes. Superman does the same thing, but Steve has the edge over him because he doesn’t have super powers. Unfortunately, that doesn’t do much to differentiate him from someone like Batman, who also doesn’t have super powers (plot armor notwithstanding). Steve doesn’t have the wealth, the high level knowledge of various academics or fighting styles, and isn’t the playboy the ladies lust after. How would you make him different than that?

    I want the focus on Steve to be that people in the future more naturally associate he and Diana as an item, rather than pursuing wonderbat or superwonder ships.

    Ummm...no. Just no.

    Women don't 'lust after the guy who has money and sleeps around.' Guys want to *be* that guy (Batman), but for women? That's a male fantasy that women really 'want' that kind of man.

    Batman is a dark, paranoid brooding man who is obsessed with justice to the point that he neglects his normal life. Steve couldn't be more different as he's generally shown as being the 'average man who became a hero.' If you were to compare him to another hero, Captain America is more on the right track. He's much more positive and upbeat, doing what he can to help others despite the obvious risk to himself *without* all the armor/toys/vehicles that Batman uses.

    Batman doesn't leave time for a love life while Steve makes the time for Diana. He genuinely cares for her and loves her and doesn't bury his feelings in his obsessions and gruff, don't-give-a-damn personality.

    Given a choice between a wealthy playboy or a compassionate monogamous hero? It's the nice guy every time

    I wonder if we want Steve to be more flesh out, his family needs to come back. He had a sister and a niece. His hobbies outside of the military were cooking and helping children. We need more of him just interacting with normal people. I still think him learning Amazonian training would be nice. The first man in modern history.
