@delphic: Yes pretty weak indeed. I am not sure how fans read this every month. Even the beginning was stunted and cliched. It makes me happy that I didn't read whatever cliffhanger there was in issue 18.
The beginning was a farce, and in my opinion its an obvious sign that Lodbell is not even trying.
@press_oblivion: At first I wanted to believe that the Wonder Woman/Superman relationship would work, but so far nothing has been done with it that hasn't felt forced. What I would have done differently is I would have had Superman not even bother with another woman and focus more on being Superman and Clark Kent. Life is not all about whose panties you are sniffing, but so far that seems to be what the direction of Superman's main title is all about.
@razzatazz I read the comic last night, and I was disgusted. I was not so much disgusted over the the portrayal of Diana as I was over Superman and his friends. The fact that Lodbell decided it would be a good idea to depict Lois in a Wonder Woman costume as a means of showing Clark wasn't over Lois was very cheap, and hurt the character on levels unimaginable. Superman is becoming more and more dislikable as the series goes on.
As far as Wonder Woman, this hurt her character on the form of that she was used as an object pretty much for a cheap gushy moment. It was a pathetic display for all the characters presented in this issue.
That kind go sucks, but there have been other good batman voices. I liked Bruce Greenwood from Under the Red Hood. I also like Peter Weller from the Dark Knight returns though in origins we are dealing with a younger Batman.
