    If we’re not going to have Donna be the resident hero when Diana’s working off world or globally, we should find some secondary heroes that can step in and keep the peace, like Guardian is for Metropolis and Birds of Prey are for Gotham.

    So it should be a known Wonder Woman character. How about Cassie? Cassie should be born and raised. I mean Donna should live with Diana until Donna finds her own footing.

    Yes, this!

    I have a list of established DC characters I’d move to the city, but I have several others (and a team) that develop in the city, because of Diana.

    I kind of think of Donna as the bridge, but I hear what you’re saying too.

    I have some clear ideas of who her friends in New York should be, but I haven’t thought too much about additional romantic partners, past Angelo Bend’s interest in her.

    I don't want to blow us off-topic, but, Donna being a 'Gateway' resident is problematic for me. Donna needs her own role to play in the DCU, ..and I think she needs her own smaller town to do it in. Furthermore, I think the town should reflect or compliment her personality...the 'hon' thing, I keep beating you folks over the head with.

    I don't think Gateway is the town that makes the most out of Donna or showcases her personality.

    I agree but I think there would be no problem with her at least spending one year with Diana in Gateway. Not as a resident if that makes sense.


    A second question would be should Steve be a resident? Or should he be born somewhere else?

    I like her being in Paris a lot. At least as a base of her operations/place to put her feet up.

    Also generally some heroes live near each other. What hero would make for a good cameo ?

    I generally see Achilles Warkiller living in the city and hanging out with Diana from time to time.

    I’ve considered moving Extraño to the city, for a bit of a magic element and supporting character in the title. My version of Extraño and Donna Troy become BFFs.

    For in-universe politics and punditry, I’ve thought about moving Jack Ryder/The Creeper to Diana’s city. I like the idea of a television reporter (with a secret of his own) hosting a program with pundits commenting on and spinning whatever Diana does to meet their own ends.

    There’s a team of allies I’ve been developing that rises up for a few specific reasons directly, and indirectly, related to Diana.

    What I love about ARGUS is that it’s breadth is so wide in terms of what and who they’re trying to manage in the world, that it occasionally opens the door to have superhero specialists guest-star. I’d vote for Mr. Terrific, Doctor Light, and Bumblebee to guest star.

    I think Diana's city could help define her, as a character, and even help writers to develop her best super-villains.

    For me, Diana's city - Marston City or Gateway - is a port city for supernatural beings, ..like a classical Amazon freedom-fighter from a time-lost utopia, who have nowhere else to go. Like all immigrants, they've come to the city to make a better life for themselves, and Diana is the protectress of their hopes for the future. In the middle of all of that, DEO threatens their freedom, with its myriad plots to monitor and control the 'aliens' and 'freaks', putting Diana between her newfound friends ..and the awesome, hi-tech authority of the US military.

    From the stage of this iconic city, Diana's stories launch her into the wildest, far-flung, most imaginative adventures that DC Comics has ever published! From her myth-inspired origins, as daughter of a once-enslaved race, Diana travels the world and beyond, challenging all, who would subdue or terrorize others, ..as her own Amazon nation was subdued. The city, as much as her origin, serves to reinforce why Diana became Wonder Woman and what she is doing in Man's World. More than just a launching pad, the City launches Diana in a coherent direction that, for writers, ..shapes and informs her on-going narrative.

    It irritates me to no end that the Supergirl TV show, in one season, was able to realize that for DC Comics' girl-Superman, while Wonder Woman, DC's First Lady of Weird, continues to limp along, with no direction. What is worse, she's even given her own fictional, iconic city, something reserved for DC's top heroes, which happens to be called 'National City', which sounds so much like a caricature of Washington, DC, ..Wonder Woman's iconic roost, in the Golden Age. The Supergirl TV show has even thrown in storylines involving social injustice issues and LGBT characters, making Supergirl the champion of the DCU's disenfranchised minorities - not the world-famous, freedom-loving Amazing Amazon...but, Supergirl? It all just felt, to me, like a robbery of what could or should have been done for Wonder Woman, the first and best of female superheroes - without whom there might not be a Supergirl TV show ..or comic - a very long time ago.

    Conceptually speaking, I felt National City and the role it plays in that show ..should have been Wonder Woman's.

    ARGUS, at its worst, like Supergirl's DEO, ..is just one more conquest-driven monster for Diana to protect all of us from. That is why I see it, at the center of Diana's city, where I think it serves to remind us who Wonder Woman is ..and why she is doing, what she's doing. Diana's archenemy, whoever that turns out to be (looks like Warmaster), should probably be a reflection or extension of that dynamic, in her enmity, with Diana. When Diana isn't battling her female, Ming the Merciless/Vandal Savage combo platter (Clea, Atomia, Villainess X, etc), ARGUS and its X-Filesy presence should keep Diana's mission, on point, in her hometown. The iconic city should accomplish that, in the same way Metropolis and Gotham do for their respective champions.

    That's what an iconic city, in a superhero comic, is for.

    Okay. While I don't think this should be a common thing. I had an idea that at least Athena would be living in Gateway. Any other mythical people or creatures you would want to be in the city. Also, would you guys like Artemis to live in Gateway

    Would Athena be in human form, as Zola? I can't see Zola living, anywhere, but, Oliveburn.

    Is it really that hard to just move her to her own fictional, iconic city ..or college? Are we still talking about this, in 2020?

    Embarrassing...

    They don't know what to do with her. With Athena she does have a human form but not Zola. I don't know how to feel about Zola due to it being part of New 52. I was going to have Athena either be in charge of Marston University or the police force
