    LOL. Well, I'm not sure either, to be honest. I think it's generally hard to be confident that anyone is really going to be convinced of anything; I tend to be on the optimistic side about this, but...

    I didn't say, and didn't mean, that no Wonder Woman comics have ever confronted the belief in the women's natural purity before. Having villainous women doesn't necessarily confront it, though....

    I still don't think so. I think she has some kind of connection to Zola and may even have created her (my latest theory is that Athena created Zola from Hippolyta's clay statue), but I don't think...

    I thought it was a fun design for this Silver Age issue, but we'll see how she looks in 35 (if she's there, as I hope she will be). Remember how different the minotaur looked when he came back after ...

    I'm not sure I understand; do you mean that when she said man's world desires only one thing, you interpreted that as meaning that men only desire war? That would work too; it would imply that men...

    Well, no. Whatever they were earlier in the run, they're certainly her allies now that they've "been redeemed"--or rather, now that they've shown more favorable sides of themselves and also shown...

    Sure, of course generalizations are necessary; I only said that a particular generalization that some fans seem to be making on this thread, "male readers enjoy more violent comics," might be...

    I can understand feeling that way, and I think maybe developing it sooner would have been a good idea, but personally, I think developing it immediately would have taken out a lot of the suspense and...

    Whatever other writers may have done, can it really still be said that Azzarello has made them seem "irredeemable," even after Dessa experienced suicidal guilt and asked Diana to raise Zeke as an...

    I get what your saying, but I think of it as more ominous than sinister; he's standing in the shadows, his lightning eyes make him look vaguely dangerous, and I guess standing in the shadows make him...

    Yeah, I can see that being an important point. For me to Amazons are secondary to Diana's personality and actions, and they can highlight her personality and actions as well by contrast and by...

    Losing any readers, even while gaining others, is unfortunate for DC, of course; but I think it's also unfortunate for those readers that they didn't get a Wonder Woman they wanted. I wasn't implying...

    True, but "male readers enjoy more violent comics" seems like an awfully broad and simplistic generalization on which to base a marketing strategy. What kinds of male readers? And what kinds of...

    I liked her too, and am glad it's confirmed that she played a key role in leading Diana to become Wonder Woman. I wonder if she'll have the same design if she shows up in 35 (and I do think she will...

    I don't mind about the contest; I'm not sure it really fits with this continuity, in which there would probably be less interest among the Amazons in being the emissary to man's world

    Dr. Poison, have you been breathing the fumes in your Poison Lab again. ;)

    Seriously, I'm not seeing the "sinister" and I doubt it was intended, but it's interesting to know that others see it...

    Yep, I agree with both of these statements. At this particular moment, whatever attraction she already feels for him is a less powerful motivating force than her long-standing desire to leave the...

    She most likely wouldn't; but, just speaking for myself, I don't care. For me, the over-the-top Silver Age style is a signal to understand the dialogue as light and at times intentionally silly, and...

    Correct. The rest of what you're saying sounds like fan fiction (or anti-fan fiction) to me, but it's not like my speculation has never sounded like fan fiction. We're all entitled to our head canon,...

    I don't think we know, but it seems likely enough; most of the other Amazons probably wouldn't have wanted to go. It hasn't been established for sure, though, so another writer could insert a contest...

    When she saw him as her "ticket," she didn't know that they would one day have feelings for each other (beyond whatever attraction she felt here--and there is some innuendo in her bantering.) It's...
