    Yeah, there was something off while she fought the robbers that made me think she was one of the Mirror Wonder Women for a second. Maybe sth happens at the end of the current arc that has Diana up in arms? I thought her more aggressive stance made perfect sense when she confronted Altuum, though. He was being a real creep.



    Interesting that only Nubia and Diana are mentioned by name.
    Haven't kept up in a while. What's this about people being displaced by the Amazons?

    In the Annual this guy claims that his people were driven from Themiscryia by The Gods when they gifted it to the Amazons and they've been waiting for Diana to die before attempting to take it back. They planned and they will be invading the island pretty soon.

    Not a fan of that if they make it out to be true.

    I'm hoping it's true. Themyscira displacing a civilization during it's creation is a warhead with a heavy payload falling from the sky. It has to be dealt with. Even if it's a civilization filled with creeps they'd have a right to feel wronged.

    Although the Amazons are blameless they didn't pick the location of their island. Their patrons did and we all know they don't always play above board.

For me it's every bit as good as Rucka and Perez simply because of how they changed Diana's voice and tone. She's much more forceful, braggadocios and aggressive now, but she's still nice, has an air of regality and uses diplomacy before violence. It's like Cloonrad turned her volume up and added more heat to her personality, so she more closely resembles her Golden Age characterization.

    Why does it matter? You constantly gatekeep the Wonder Woman properties discussed here and question everyone who does not worship the WW altar 100 % (whether your gatekeeping is direct or "subtle," it's quite noticeable). Let people like or dislike what they want to). Jeez, Louise.

    It's not that deep, I had no ulteior motive for asking the question and stated quite plainly the reason was curiosity. Now I know their feelings on the subject and they both made a lot of sense. That's part of the beauty of Wonder Woman, she has a lot of different elements making up her world and we're all attracted to diferent facets of it.

    It is that deep to you, obviously, if it makes you engage in this constant, sometimes-blatant-sometimes "subtle" gatekeeping of these characters. This is like the fourth recent time you question several differente members of the board for disliking a certain type of WW art or a specific writer or even a pic. Like I said, enjoy whatever you enjoy and let others enjoy or not enjoy whatever they enjoy/not enjoy; the gatekeeping is ridiculous and unnecessary. I have never seen anyone else here interrogating anyone over their preferences in regard to WW stories.
