    That's the thing though, writers just fail to take the myth out of the myth when they should be placing the myth into the "real" world, The way writers like to treat WW, if it were Superman he'd be in outer space all the time.

    Wonder Woman coming to Mans World should pull back the curtain on what the world thought were myths and questioning the validity of it all. But alas.

    Iím fine with the scientist angle, but Iíd rather she just be an darker, malevolent Indiana Jones type of character, who received her powers from a mystical artifact she stole. Idk if I want it to be Greek/Roman related, because I think itíd be more interesting if she became the avatar of a god from another pantheon.

    Isn't that Cheetah's thing already?

    That was Cheetah's thing... in the New 52. It's been retconned away back to the evil ritual of Urzkartaga.

    I honestly think the whole mystical artifact granting her powers would be a good origin for Giganta. Cheetah's not using it anymore, and it hearkens back to the Superfriends origin where she steals Apache Chief's powder.

    It could still work.

    I'd also make Ross' Justice version as her basis, ignoring the Gorilla City backstory.

    They should add Apache Chief to JLD, and make him a shaman.

    I think you're in the wrong thread.

    You know, I've heard of Circe turning Barbara into a were-cheetah as robbing the Cheetah, but what about her being the one to turn a gorilla into an Amazonian-esque human woman? Her growing powers can come from science whether it be Dr. Poison, or some other scientist.

    It was a tangent off of Giganta’s Super Friends origin.

    I like that Doctor Doris Zuel could play some kind of mad doctor triumvirate with Doctor Poison and Doctor Cyber and have her giantess form to boot.
    My favorite twist is to take the mad science and mix in a tiny bit of myth by having her use some mad science with a sample of DNA from a titan. Sure hasn't been done yet, but it mixes aspects of the various origins in a neat way that works with the WW mythos..
