    That's such a weird viewpoint since none of the gods beyond Ares and some minor gods (Deimos, Hecate, et al) are actually part of her rogues gallery. I guess Hades, maybe, but he's spent far more time in the comics as an ally/neutral figure than an antagonist.

    I think it was a waste, too, since I was really hoping we'd see Aphrodite.

    That's what I was saying. In fairness, this was also around the time when Azz's WW was still fairly fresh in people's minds which was probably the run that used them the most.

    I wish at least the goddesses were kept (or given Zeus' role in the backstory scene).

    Zeus has about 5 minutes of "screentime" in the original movie and he gets a single mention in 84. There's no reason to overcomplicate things with why these various Goddesses are around Diana when "Zeus is her father" is to the point. The man plays no role in Diana's life at all, so I don't begrudge the movie for going for simplicity to keep the movie moving.

    The movie has handled daddy Zeus origin better than other incarnations, yes. I'm just stating a personal preference for Athena or Aphrodite.

    Does Ares think highly of Diana tho? I mean after she became the new God of War in New 52 he would have to. But before that? I always figured he just thought of her as an annoyance

    I can see why the Duke wears a helmet going off his hairstyle.

    Are you sure the hairstyle isn't a result of wearing the helmet?

    Love these ladies so much.

    Them plus Veronica, Circe, Dr. Cyber and Silver Swan are the best group of villainous ladies in comics, I don't care what anyone says.
