    The way Rucka treated the whole New 52 and earlier stories in Rebirth. Azzarello had made me love the character of Wonder Woman for the first time. Rucka destroyed any interest I had in her.

    In General - Azzarello's run. It destroyed a lot of the things that Marston and Perez had put in place that made Diana's world unique and inspiring.

    Specifically - My most hated moment was during Azzarello's run when Wonder Woman sexually assaulted Orion. This was crude, disgusting, and completely out of character for Diana. Runner up also comes from Azzarello's run where it was revealed that the Amazons were man-hating/killing sex-pirates. Number three comes from the Perez run when Steve Trevor was made too old to be a viable love interest for WW. That threw WW's love life into turmoil for 20+ years.
    Currently Reading: Aquaman, Doomsday Clock, Hawkman, Justice League, Justice League Dark, Mera, The Terrifics, Titans, & Wonder Woman.

    Pretty much anything from Azz's run pertaining to the Amazons.

    Amazons Attack.

    Literally anything written about Diana in the Injustice Universe. Well, other than the first game's writing of the "real" Diana from the other universe, anyway.
    Though much is taken, much abides; and though
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    --Lord Alfred Tennyson--

    Opposite effect for me. Loved Rucka pre 52 and dropped comics altogether because of Azz

    I love her character but I won't be satisfied until we get back her ambassador side that Azz and co. Dropped for the n52.

    Most hated moments though:
    -n52 Azz run.
    -what they did to Donna Troy, dear God.
    -Amazons attack

    Azz-Amazons
    Rucka's amateur hour New52 rug-sweeping
    Rucka's forced dynamic with Batman (they should be respected teammates at best, but these two realistically would not get along as friends).
    Amazons Attack
    Injustice Wonder Woman

    That's just off the top of my head.

    Superman and Wonder Woman becoming a couple is up there somewhere along with what just about everyone else said.

    Making Etta and Steve old is another one I hate

    Why not? I see the Trinity as close friends imo.

    Azzarello, Amazons Attack, Darkseid killing half the Amazons and James Robinson will have to work long and hard to make me like Diana's long lost twin because I already hate the idea.

    Count me among the chorus of woe saying no to:

    - sex pirate baby killing
    - Zeus-daddy drama
    - Amazons Attack
    - Donna the mass murderer
    - Injustice, Flashpoint, Infnit Crisis WW

    Basically, the shallow spectacle events tend to be bad for WW.

    Me, too. I was done with it as soon as it was mentioned.

    Amazons Attack
    Azzarello's Amazons
    The Finch Run, and the New 52 output from Johns and others that was so messy
    Making Steve and Etta older and boring post-Crisis.
    Any time Cheetah or another for is jobbed.
    Time traveling Wonder Hippolyta, and making Diana a legacy
    Donna getting screwed up by Crisis, Diana being the rookie of the major heroes and appearing so long after

    Their philosophies and personalities are off-the-charts different. The only thing they have in common is wanting to help people, but the means couldn't be more different. This is the same for Superman and Batman too, but there's a key difference there. Superman is more approachable and far less stubborn than Wonder Woman is. The approachability and extra effort Superman gives is what leads to a mutual friendship between the two. In my mind the only reason the Trinity would be a thing on the page (from a frequent team-up point of few, not the term's symbolism factor) is because of Superman. He's the center. Bruce is friends with Clark. Diana is friends with Clark. Bruce and Diana tolerate each other on those grounds. That's how I'd play it. Them being really close beyond respected teammates just doesn't make sense considering their characterizations.

    This opinion would change if DC ever had Bruce loosen up some. But despite a few instances now and then it's never stuck. The fans like asshole Batman too much. Unless they give it a shot again if he gets engaged to Selina and it sticks that time. But I'm not counting on it.

    The New 52 was billed as a reboot. Rebirth was not. Plus Marston vision of feminism is totally outdated and pretty stupid. There, I said it.
