    How? It's not like Ares and Circe are villains most other superheroes and a WW story featuring them won't be the same as everywhere else. No one has an issue with Thor's archenemy being Loki.

    DC's versions of Circe and Ares are as much in the public domain as Wonder Woman herself.

    Almost nothing interesting or meaningful has ever been done with Nubia.

    Donna Troy should be erased from existence.

    Ares is a boring as hell villain. I far prefer him being a mentor to Diana like in Azz, but I would also be ok with him being an evil mentor to Diana, pushing her to use force to secure peace in Man's World. I'm content with his current Rebirth status quo.

    Cheetah works better as her Two-Face than her "Joker". Imo an arch-nemesis needs both a philosophical reason to oppose the hero in addition to a petty reason, like how Lex fights Supes both because he's envious of Supes and because he thinks Supes makes humanity weak and reliant upon him. Or how Joker hates Bats for not breaking because of his trauma and because Bats dedication to law and order is in opposition to Joker's desire to do whatever he wants.

    "Blue Snowman" is a stupid name. Just call her the Snowwoman.

    I don't get how Giganta is a serious threat at all.

    Ares should be Dianaís big bad, and Cheetah should be her personal nemesis. Circe though a major antagonist just doesnít have the thematic depth as the other two.
    This is one of those things that's rather reliant on the nature of the backstory of the Amazons. Maybe that's what they did before they splintered and some moved to Themiscyra? Maybe it's the Themiscyran Amazons that are heretics who abandoned Ares?
