@CaioTrubat: In Perez's original series the Amazons where created by the Gods from the souls of women who died in pre history as faith in the Gods was waning so that they wouldn't die out. The were part of Greece for a while and had there own city but then Hercules along with his army raped them and sacked the city after Hippolyta beat him in a fight.(Aeres was the one who got Herc to fight in the 1st place by telling him that Hippolyta was spreading lies about him). So the goddesses saw how emotional scarred they were and gave them there own island as well as immortality. Diana was the soul of Hippolytas child from pre history who died in her womb when her husband killed her in a fit of rage. She was made of clay and given life by Artemis, Aphrodite, Hestia and Hermes (which explains her powers). In this new 52 version I have no idea why they are Amazons. The amazons were BOTH warriors and intellectuals in Perez's version, so why can't they be both in the new version? It would make them a multifaceted, like real cultures are. They enjoyed art, literature and music yet also studied military tatics and the arts of war.
I'm doing my thesis on mythology and the roles of women and the writer clearly picked the myths and legends that show the Amazons that their worse so that Diana could look more like a paragon of truth and goodness. Look at the Celts, they were incredible war like but also were know for there gold working skills, elected kings and had female judges and high bards, so if one were to focus solely on the warrior aspect of there culture you won't get the full picture. This is why I dislike this version of Wonder Woman
Marz did a great job with the Artifacts crossover event so I think he'll do great with this one.
