    A run based off the Perez/Jimenez/Rucka runs.

    Weismann could do a top job.

    It would depend on a lot of factors.

    Ideally I think a molding of Golden Age with the Perez/Jimenez/Rucka runs would be my ideal Wonder Woman adaption, even though I imagine the latter era(s) would get more favoritism over Marston's work.

    Rucka's current run would probably be pretty practical to base around a TV show. It's modern, has a strong foundation, and has already found it's own "team" dynamic ala the other Arrowverse shows.

    Maybe they'll do a CW WW where Felicity will do cameos

    Well, she'll definitely need at least one adorkable computer hacker/tech person since each show has one .

    I read WW mainly in the Simone Run and i was interested in Strayzinski's Oddysey storyline so i might take a few cues from there. I'll probably just read alot of the runs and just do my own take on the material.

    The original Marston run, the Sekowsky mod run, and the Byrne run have the most potential for a TV show budget.

    The Byrne run has the advantage that Paradise Island exists outside normal time and space (same more or less for the Sekowsky run). So WW and a kind of Blackhawks/Challengers of the Unknown team could leave their base on Paradise Island and fly to different periods in history.

    Gerry Conway's Kobra storyline from WW #269-285. Sets up supporting cast with Steve Trevor, Etta Candy and Amazons. Also includes stories with The Cheetah and Angle Man.

    Roy Thomas' run from WW #288-293. You get Dr. Psycho and The Silver Swan and the all-heroine team up.

    For live-action or cartoon, my picks would be the Byrne or Chiang-Azzarello runs...no contest. I think, with a few tweaks - occasionally guest-starring Steve Trevor, X-Files-styled secret agent - the Chiazzarello run would go about seven or eight seasons on BBC, ..and the Byrne run is perfection for American television, with no tweaks at all.

    I think merging Perez's and Rucka's 2nd run would be ideal as a TV series. With Perez's run, you get Vanessa Kapatelis which young girls could identify with, plus the epic storylines that could easily cover quite a few seasons. Rucka's 2nd run would incorporate a young Steve Trevor for the romantic lead, Barbara Ann as a major character, and Godwatch for more classic villain stuff.

    I could see a four season series adapting the Perez, Rucka, Jiminez and Simone runs.

    Is there anything in the runs you think can be better? Like can devastation be made a better villain?

    Rucka's first run is TV ready as written. I think the Perez run and portions of Byrne's run (but most especially WW:GODS AND GODDESSES) are big screen ready. They are dying to be adapted to film.

    Agreed with all of this, plus some of the Jimenez take on the characters and villains.
