    Please, not a Byronic hero romantic interest for Wonder Woman. She could do so much better than being the Magic Pixie Dream Girl to reform a male love interest.

    I think what Diana needs much more is a Lois Lane—a person who challenges her to do better. A properly constructed Steve could easily fill that role.

    Well said!! I get so sick of them wanting to make WW, as you said a magic pixie dream girl to reform some male love interest!! What they really want is for WW to fall for some criminal or some degrading animal like orion! Some just love seeing good girl get dragged thru the mud!! Some would love to see WW being dragged thru the mud by some criminal love interest!

    I guess Angle Man would meet the basic definition though I think she’d be more amused/charmed by him than actually have romantic interests in him of how Bruce/Selina’s relationship works (where it usually seems part lust/temptation to draw the other to their side of the law)

    That said, I don’t think WW really needs a “Catwoman” archetype.

    Diana needs a hot, nuisance reporter! Keep in mind she's not as indulgent of humans, as Superman. One day, she'd be a coupla' minutes too late to pull him out of the wood chipper, he climbed in, after a story.

    Wonder Woman can't have a Catperson of her own, either.

    Why? Because Wonder Woman can't seduce, be seduced or have anything, remotely resembling a real-world sexual exchange, with anything resembling a real-world, sentient, human male. No man in the WW comic is ever going to grab Diana by the hair or anything else, with her consent, or express his interest in her, ..with clunky, funky mistakes, indulgences and forgivenesses, because that would require Diana to engage or be engaged by equals. I think the reception of Brian Azzarello's work has already proved that can't happen.

    Greg Rucka afforded Diana a soap opera styled drift into a bedroom, with the requisite trail of discarded clothing, supplied by accompanying artist, ..and that is the best we can hope for. Right up to the drift, Steve was shown to be meek and grateful, and we would expect no less...him bedding a sacred, feminist icon, instead of a partly human woman. No hot, steamy Cat-scratch fever for our Wonder Woman...sorry.

    Please don't offer blond Ares, as a candidate. Ares, in any form, is a grotesque...not a man. No seduction happening, here.

    There are no men in the WW comic, who might seduce Diana, as Catwoman does Batman. While Batman is allowed to be a man, with a woman, Diana is barely allowed to be human, ..and you can fill in the blanks - supply your own interpretation - as to why that is the case.
