    Default Your thoughts on Diana Prince

    I know man dislike this but couldn't Diana use it as a name only? She not hide behind it but just for signing papers.

    I like it as something she breaks out for special purposes. Something you'd only see every now and then.
    But for it to be something she uses to hide behind every day? Gross.

    I see it as name only. She only uses when she needs it. For example signing papers or Id but She doesn't call herself Diana Prince only if she needs to.

    Pretty much, yeah. It's a more interesting take on the whole secret identity thing.

    I don't mind it, so as long as they don't treat her as Bruce or Clark.

    It has its uses. I see it as her using it for maybe an incognito assignment for the JL or just for some downtime for a couple of hours if she wanted to say, see a movie in peace in a cinema with other people or just go have some ice cream in Hagen Dazs. Let's face it Diana is high profile. Having her strut around London and no one recognizing her ever is reaching at times. Sure many times you can miss a celebrity in a crowd but not all the time and not someone as stunning and tall and exotic as she is. Or there is the way it was used in Spirit of Truth just it allowing her to go around the world to just mingle and learn about other people and cultures and be one of the masses and not have her heroic ID or princess identity get in the way as it would influence how people react to her. It gives her a good pov to see things how people see it. Many people have a journey like this be it back packing around the world or volunteering to do aid world etc. I think if WW wants to inspire others, she needs to learn about the world she wants to inspire. I was never a fan of her just coming out into our world and suddenly she knows best or her singing how much she loves everybody just like that. But it would just be for that purpose.

    I don't care for her using it as a CIA type spy working for the government/ US military etc. I am not a big fan of for her being a tool of any single government administration. She should remain neutral where politics are concerned.

Like having a little privacy would actually hurt anybody...

    It didn't work when they tried to shoehorn it into post-Crisis continuity, because Perez made her a literal ambassador and the secret ID complicated things. But the concept in general isn't bad. In classical mythology, Goddesses like Athena adopted mortal guises to blend with the public before revealing themselves. I think the secret ID is allegorical in that way. Especially in the early days of the Age of Superheroes where the government would attempt to capture and control them, I can see Diana adopting it so she can hide.

    Other factors could come into play. The Amazon nation prefers to be hidden from the world, so having their Princess blabbing about all their secrets is against their interests. Until the Amazons decide as a nation to come forward, I can see Diana respecting their wishes by not blowing the whistle on their existence. Plus, she has to earn a living. Either as a nurse or Darnell's secretary, she can't live off of mommy's fortune forever. I don't think she'd want to anyway.

    I will say one thing though: unlike the Daily Planet staff and Clark, I think Steve, Etta, Darnell and the rest should be in on Diana's double life and even help set it up. She should also be willing to share her true identity to those whom she feels earns her trust. She'd be cautious, but not paranoid like Clark or Bruce.
    Agreed, I also feel that since Diana came here to spread her message she should take something from Steve's culture a surname or That she wants to blend in a bit. Also when you think about it many immigrants change their names. I don't want her lying to her friends. However than that I'm cool with Diana Prince.

    Has for a job what about a writers?

    I always Wondered if you could write back Etta and Holiday Girls. Do you want them to be trained back Diana

    Etta and the Holiday girls could never be the hazing, paddle-wielding sorority that they used to be (and what college would actually call itself "Holiday"? No way.), but they could be an activist group that Diana has connections to, and she could use the Diana Prince identity as a representative for them.

    I feel like Azzarelo missed the opportunity to define Diana's role in the outside world. His run was interesting from a mythological point of view. He got an innovative way to portray the Greek Gods especially Ares; in the old DCU he was just bully, a very two-dimensional character. Azzarelo gave him depth.
    This being said, what I like with preN52 Diana was the way she interacted with the outside world (not just as a hero I mean). I really enjoyed the way Rucka portrayed her as an ambassador, the way he developed her interacting with the staff but also the way she tried to impact on the world. I remember his first arc; Diana was publishing a book which made her the target of right-wing pundits. She had to face a type of threat she had never faced before and against which her powers were useless. She had to deal with political attacks on her reputation, public protests,...She was a public figure dealing with modern societal issues...
    I think bringing back Diana Prince could be a way to renew this problematic.
    In the New 52 Diana Prince could run a company or a fund... She would be lobbying against modern slavery, founding woman shelters, building schools for little girls in third world countries, raising awareness about inequalities,...
    Diana Prince should be a way for Wonder Woman to engage a conversation with the world when she is off-duty and out of the costume IMO.

    Do we know for sure if she came with Steve to spread a message? We still know very little about her early times in the US in the new continuity. Judging by her first experience in the Justice League, she came for adventure, not to teach anything. I'm drawing a blank on what might have been said in ARGUS.
    Not Peter David.

    Special assignments only. I don't care if she poses as CIA or the British MI6 or even an Israeli Massod agent (which Gal has played before). I would love some Diana Prince action! But I'm hoping Diana's main residence is the Themysciran embassy to the US, preferably in Washington DC (honors her WWII roots) where everyone knows she's Diana, the Amazon warrior princess.

    I like it as her alter ego. For every day life, work or under cover work. I prefer it to the "always on" or full time Ambassador-with-an-embassy role. It was an essential part of the character form the start, and I'm glad the ID sticks around in some capacity. I'd like to see her working a job at ARGUS as Diana Prince.
    Are you sure that "by the grace of God" you survived? Maybe God was trying to get you, and missed.
