    Yeah, I didn't see this as suggestive at all.

    I did see it as heavy handed and pointless i.e. Diana, a non-military volunteer, having to get a check up after every single mission is just weird for a superhero, especially one of her caliber. It struck me as 'let's make up a reason for Diana to see a doctor so we can introduce plot elements,' and felt very forced and awkward to me.

    But no, nothing suggestive at all.

    Well, they did also mention that PTSD is a possible side effect of things she has seen. They tried to get her to talk about what she was feeling too as well as give her a physical exam.
    Life is too short to waste on bad movies/TV/books/music.

    Etta Candy is not the leading lady, and she isn't in the comic to win any beauty pageants. She's comic relief.

    I like that Shea Fontana respects that. I like that she's developing a supporting cast for the WW comic, and that she's building Diana's relationship with this NEW, black, TV-tie-in Etta, ..in spite of the mine-field of liberal, political correctness that a writer must navigate to bring her to life. I hope that she and the artist won't let Etta's race get in the way of delivering a wild, bold, outrageous and classically FAT Etta! Etta's a fat, happy, CRAZY woman, and fears of playing into politically incorrect and historically ugly stereotypes of black women have no place in writing her. She doesn't let her being fat get in the way of going after what she wants and doesn't care what anybody thinks about it! In turn, Fontana must write Etta, with love, courage and honesty, because a lesser Etta - less fat, less wild, less outrageous - is NO Etta, at all.

    I think that relenting or holding back in bringing Etta Candy to life, as the greatest sidekick in comics, would be the worst disservice that any writer could do her, ..especially, if the writer is holding back, because Etta is black.

    Give us the full Etta ..or none at all.

    One more thing: I want to see her crazy, fat @$$ on a kanga...ASAFP. Gotta' happen, Fontana. Make it happen.

    But she wasn't comic relief in the rucka series. She was a hard ass military leader like a cross between Fury, Ross and Waller. The movie made her comic relief.

I'm glad that they made Etta get over the angst that Rucka created for her but at the same time, she got over it so fast that it just seems wrong, almost like this is not suited in the same timeline.

    The highlight for me was the art. Huge fan of Andolfo and her vibrant characters. Other than that, this is decent at best and off at worst.
    Almost the exact opposite. I agree it's a mediocre start, but for different reasons.

    The Amazon flashback scenes seemed entirely reasonable to me. She's the only child on the island. Of course Hippolyta struggled.

    I agree that Ett seems weirdly disconnected from the events at the end of Rucka's run.

    As for comparing to Finch... Heh. At least this time we got a doll, not a teddy bear

    PS, Dr Crawford had me raising an eyebrow. If we find her first name is Gwen, I may feint. LOL

    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    The movie had her in-line with classic Etta, which her characterization in this issue was more in-line with then anything Rucka did.

    I REALLY dislike it when writers go ridiculous with the "Amazons are ruthless warriors and anything that isn't that makes you weak." I don't buy for a second that they'd have a problem with a child playing with a doll (and Hippolyta certainly wouldn't).

    Especially Year One Hippolyta.

    I'd also think Diana would be at least seeing a metahuman doctor specialist. I'm nitpicking, but I'm not sure how a regular doctor evaluates the vitals of a demigod.

    Heck movie Hippolyta wouldn't even do that. One of her big things was essentially "Diana is a child, the only child on the island, let her be one." For goodness sake she read her daughter bedtime stories.
