Has the DC Ares page been merged with this one? It doesn't make sense to me as to why Marvel's version gets his own page but the DC version has mixed with this one...?

I would LOVE a Sensation Comics, even if it's digital. Really, it'd be perfect for the more super-stuff for Wonder Woman, whereas Azzarello has the mythy stuff down for her main book. We really are lacking in a fun WW book where Diana fights the Blue Snowman.
@Icarusflies: It's a woman whose taken the names Barbara Minerva, Priscilla Rich, Deborah Domaine, and Sabrina Ballesteros all at one point or another. Thus her real name likely isn't even Barbara Minerva at this point.
Everyone is saying how the show needs to be so rooted with Paradise Island, but everyone should remember... it would air on the CW. Shows aren't given exactly the highest budget to film with, and Paradise Island would need to be either filmed in New Zealand or completely CGI. The whole point is to make a drama/action with a young Wonder Woman in the US. A fish out of water story. And Artemis, Hippolyta, and Ares aren't anymore vital in my opinion than Etta Candy, Steve Trevor, or Cheetah.
As for the origin, I do agree the Zeus origin is interesting and fresh. But relatable? No way. Sure, she has a father now... but he's king of the gods.
The Serpent Society seems to be popping up everywhere nowadays.
They were in Battle Scars #3-4 (although Deadpool shoots Cottonmouth in the head and cuts off Anaconda's arm), then Avenging Spider-Man (with Anaconda and Cottonmouth completely recovered), and most recently Avengers Vs. X-Men where Hope battled and defeated them.
It'd be nice if they weren't played up as fodder for once. And a little more consistency with the roster. Apparently Sidewinder, Asp, Copperhead, and Death Adder are all back with the Serpent Society.
I think new members are the last thing they need. The Serpent Society has so many members, a lot of whom had some development over the years (Black Mamba, Anaconda, Bushmaster) but a lot who haven't (Rattler, Coachwhip, Puff Adder). Now that Death Adder is back, I think a revamped Serpent Society with Sidewinder back as leader, and members consisting of the more interesting members (my ideal group would be Sidewinder, Black Mamba, Anaconda, Cottonmouth, Rattler, and Bushmaster, with Asp, Coachwhip, Fer-de-Lance, Boomslang, etc. as reserve members).
