    Well, one tries, but, in practice, I think almost no interpretation focuses on all details equally. Even if there is an all-inclusive uber-interpretation, the interpreter will still see those details...
  2. I just pointed out that Dr. Bifrost is not...

    I just pointed out that Dr. Bifrost is not (according to The Mary Sue) a "female writer"; I don't think that this is really "something to argue about." :)

    I (like you, and presumably like Dr....

    I wouldn't call them corrections, because they wouldn't contradict or replace what's been established--they'd add to it and build on it. Azz left some room for the imagination, to be sure, and I've...

    Well, it looks like Batgirl 41 in June has the same creative team that is in place before Convergence, so in that sense it's the same run, even if it starts a new arc and refects a new status quo in...

    I wouldn't like that--especially if he had stated or shown it in the book itself (since interview comments and the like are easier to overlook).

    I'm not sure how much a reviewer's gender matters, but since you wanted to limit our search to articles by "a female writer," I want to point out that the article you mentioned (the one linked by...

    Hey, getting swallowed whole, while surely not pleasant, isn't necessarily fatal for gods, as we know from the case of Zeus's siblings. :) According to what may be the oldest and most authoritative...

    Did I accidentally grant that premise when I wasn't looking? :)

    ETA--But, if you mean that it can a paternal narrative even while it dramatizes how destructive and corrupting unbridled patriarchy...

    Pretty much, but there is, or should have been, a part of my argument that I can see I've underplayed: The idea that being a hero depends mainly on the father is subverted not only by Hippolyta's...
  10. Talking about what Azz said he was trying to do...

    Talking about what Azz said he was trying to do is not the same as talking about whether the actually accomplished it. It's the latter that I wanted to leave aside for the moment, just



    What's...
  11. But if (and let's just keep it hypothetical for...

    But if (and let's just keep it hypothetical for now, to clarify terms before returning to talking about whether Azz's run actually does something like what I'm proposing) you then reveal that that...
  12. Well, that's right; nowhere do I say that,...

    Well, that's right; nowhere do I say that, because never did I mean that. :) I think they can use the "child of the sky-king" archetype, but put a twist on it. Subvert it. Again, I think the fact...

    There are at least a couple of other named Amazons (albeit with very minor roles) --Demi and Daphne--in Wonder Woman 3. Beyond Azz, besides the ones you [eta--and Outside] named, there was Atla (the...

    "In a way," and "a [not necesarily 'the'] central figure." This seems a little more equivocal than what Johns was saying in his late April interviews:



    Maybe he overstated a little bit, or...
  15. I'm not trying to sell it; I'm recognizing the...

    I'm not trying to sell it; I'm recognizing the fact that people readily associate "child of Zeus" with "hero." And I'm saying that putting a big twist on that--by making "child of Hippolyta" turn out...

    Maybe, or maybe the plan was always for her to keep sinking until she hits bottom, and then bounce back. That's a pretty familiar storyline, right? To me, the important question is not when they...

    I think the Hanley book is more geared towards WW fandom, but if you're also interested in early-to-mid 20th century American cultural history, and especially the history of feminism and of sex and...

    This seemed more true in the first year of the run. As in a lot of feminist narratives, the hero starts out in a male-dominated world, apparently with few women willing and able to be her allies. As...

    Did it remind anyone else a little of Diana's "mod" outfit?

    Well, I think of Hippolyta's role in Wonder Woman books less as the hero than as a progenitor--like Adam (except she's the progenitor of Wonder Woman, whereas he's just the progenitor of the human...

    Yeah, that whole last clause of the solicit ("...while Wonder Woman draws closer to the Amazon who tried to depose Diana as queen!") is oddly worded; it also almost sounds like they could be hinting...

    For sure. But an origin should somehow help, rather than work against, her actions in creating that picture, right? If "made from clay" evokes progenitors (Adam), love objects (Galatea) or reluctant...
