    Honestly, I’ve never really considered any of the Amazons to be “human”, more mystic humanoid if that makes sense. Not necessarily demigods, (maybe 25% idk lol) or just mythical beings. Kinda like nymphs, but on a much higher human-like level. I guess I’ve always thought of them that way since while they are on Earth, they are not necessarily “of Earth”, since I’ve always thought of Themyscira as being cast in a different dimension.

    Themyscria was first a island on our plane than went to a different dimension. I wonder if maybe the Amazons were simple women and were blessed by Aphrodite and the other female gods.

    Well, it doesn't help that the writers in DC rarely bother to talk about the origin of the Amazons. IIRC some of the stories suggested that Hippolyta was the same as the mythical queen. but it's not clear if that's the "normal" version of Hippolyta's origin.

    One problem seen with pretty much every DCAU character that wasn't Batman or Superman is how each episode had around 5 minutes of time to do character development. Sure WW is one of the characters seen most often, but that's still not a lot.

    That's why I preferred the second season over the bulk of the Unlimited era. They didn't have to cram all the story into 22 minutes. That said, they had enough time to flesh out WW, but the bigger issue was that they did a pretty mediocre job compared to characters like John Stewart and Shayera.

    Is this thread restricted to Timmverse WW? Or does this also include JLA WW??

    “DCAU” tends to be shorthand for referring to just the Timmverse but I don’t see any reason you couldn’t talk about the JLA WW.

    Honestly, we need a Wonder Woman animated series to give her mythos and characters the breadth and depth they're cable of achieving.

    After Batman, and alongside the Flash, I'd say Diana's adversaries and the ideas behind a bunch of her villains are far, far stronger than Green Lantern's and Superman's.

    We just need someone to care and create compelling stories for Cheetah, The Mask, Blue Snowman, Zara, Eviless, Osira, Doctor Poison, Doctor Psycho, and a whole bunch of other character concepts in her rogues gallery.

    Call me DC! I can see it all so clearly in my mind.

    I'm curious who should be the main cast. Which versions of the characters would you like? I don't want a black Etta. We need the red hair. I would like Nubia and Mala
