    I'm thinking maybe Hera's rage at Orion was partly for the Amazons' benefit. With Diana away at least for the moment, Hera might feel it's up to her to hold this crazy army together, and to do that...

    Sure--he offended, she let it go (in the bar, when he slapped her butt); he offended again, she warned him (hyperbolically, and with a little demonstration of how love can hurt :) ); he offended...

    Yes--she went the non-violent route of choking him and cracking his skull against the ground, instead of applying slightly excessive pressure to his balls. :)

    I want that Wonder Woman 35 cover to have this dialogue:

    Wonder Woman (pointing): "Look! Up In the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's S--":

    I thought this was the worst issue since the highly regrettable #2. The dialogue was lackluster and the plot and characterization didn't draw me in. The book had been on the upswing for a while, but...

    Have you seen the latest issue (#25, which came out this week)? Alan and Jay, and to a somewhat lesser extent Kendra, are very much in it. I can understand if you find that this comes too late and if...

    What's feminist to me about the story is that it promoted the idea that a woman could be president. That was a pretty radical idea at the time, only a couple of decades after women got the vote.

    I agree, in a sense. In writing Steve, Marston was, I think, was guided by one of his own idiosyncratic feminist principles--the idea that men crave to be dominated by a strong woman. I don't Steve...

    It seems like he was basically thinking out loud; it occurred to him that the "feminist" label might be misunderstood, but he didn't quite have time to realize that he could just not use the word...

    I think that often we were expected to accept a sharp contrast between the Amazons' past and their present. For 3 thousand years or so (since they were rescued from the captivity of Hercules) they...

    In case people didn't see this news, I thought some around here would be interested in this collection of the whole run of Marston and Peters' Wonder Woman newspaper comic, coming in August:

    Sure, by sane standards, it would be kind of pointless; but he's "kind of" psychotic--and psychopathic to boot. This is part of what makes him a scary monster; you can't rationally argue with him,...

    I suspect we'll get Athena in July--or at the very least she'll probably be discussed.. The solicit asks about who is "just" enough (as well as decent enough) to rule the Olympians, and Athena has...
