    I don't think we ever saw it in the New 52, unless you count her screaming about ice cream and waving a sword around as her "first arrival" scene.

    So they're even restoring the Golden Age costume.

    The only ones I know so far that match their new timeline are Dick and Diana, maybe Bruce, and neither Bruce nor Dick look like they're aged up.

    Oh.

    Yeah.

    That's it.

    It's not naive though, just fish-out-of-water with a combination of "I don't give a shit". She fought the military men assigned to watch her, broke a wall, and walk around town looking for something to fight after she saw the Parademon on the news. She said she's in man's world to fight evil.

    Yeah, not naive, but for a character all about love and compassion, this "don't give a shit attitude" is very OOC. As much as i love wonder woman, her portrayal (and superman's) made me stop reading n52.

    She comes from an isolationist and segregationist warrior culture which truly believes that they are better than "Man's World". People like that usually don't give a shit about what other cultures do and act. Diana in New 52 clearly wanted to better the world and for her, acting and fighting against evil was paramount to do that. Again, in line with the Amazon, a culture of immortal warrior women.

    As for Superman, as a Champion of the Oppressed, who didn't allow the laws of the powerful to protect them, he recaptured his right to be called an inspiring hero in the NEW 52.

    Dick was already aged up, but not as much as he would be under the new timeline. He was 21 in New 52 and he's now claiming to have lost nearly two decades of memories (everything since his parents died) so clearly he's nearer to 30 now.

    Tahat may be true for the amazons in genaral but not for Diana who was always at odd with her sisters regarding her belief in mankind.

    yeah that's what happen when you forget love and compassion. You become just a bully who think he is right even when you are not. And that is not what Wonder Woman is supposed to be. Same for Superman.

    Our world is being killed because "love and compassion" too often amount to doing nothing in the face of evil and greed. New 52 Superman and Wonder Woman both took actions to correct it. That's what they are supposed to be : the herald of a better tomorrow, not the keepers of the bleak world we live in. What is the point of Truth, Justice and the American Way if it allows the US imperialism to run rampant ? What good do love and compassion if they do not uproot the whole social ecology which allows the powerful to prey on the weak ?

    Without love and compassion you have the Injustive universe, but if you say it's better...

    In good news though, I really like the way it was written, the way it looks, and hey Alan Scott/basically Doomsday clock was right with the return of the JSA.

    I just had to go through and delete some posts.
    Some users chose to use terms that weren't exactly in good taste and were very poorly chosen.
    Said users are now being watched closely and need to make better choices.
