If I Relaunched Wonder Woman

The word relaunch is included in a shameless attempt to get people to read this blog. Think of this as my version of Wonder Woman. Any version of the DC Universe that I created would have the elements of racial diversity, prominent female characters, and the normal passage of time. I welcome reader comments, even the negative ones, so if you want to discourage me from posting more blogs just don't comment at all.

There are several changes I would make if I got the chance to do my own version of Wonder Woman. I would make the Greek gods powerful humanlike aliens from another reality. The Greek goddesses would create Themyscira to spread their ways. In the modern world, Themyscira would be a technologically advanced city-state populated entirely by women. One example of their technology would be planes that can turn invisible. They would have diplomatic relations with other nations. As such, Themyscira would have several ambassadors and not just one.

One change that I would make to the DC Universe is to have superheroes under direct control of the United Nations and/or their member nations. As was the case in the Earth-D universe, my version of the Justice League would be called the Justice Alliance. Diana of Themyscira would form the team in November of 1941. In the process she would take the codename Wonder Woman. The subsequent leaders of the Justice Alliance would be Troia, Artemis, Nubia, and Cassandra. These women would also use the name Wonder Woman.

Justice Alliance 1940s to Mid 1950s-Wonder Woman (Diana), Starman (Mikaal Tomas), Plastic Man (Patrick O'Brien), Dr. Mid-Nite (Beth Chapel), Wildcat (Yolanda Montez), Roulette (Victoria Sinclair), Red Tornado (Android), Crimson Avenger (Jill Carlyle), Black Condor (John Trujillo)

Justice Alliance Mid 1950s to 1960s-Wonder Woman (Troia), Miss Martian (M’gann M’orzz), Jemm Son of Saturn, Starwoman (Courtney Whitmore), Jakeem Thunder, Element Woman, Animal Man (Buddy Baker), Elasti-Woman, Mento

Justice Alliance 1970s to Mid 1980s-Wonder Woman (Artemis), Plastic Man (Luke O'Brien), Zatanna, Vixen, Bronze Tiger, Firestorm (Jason Rusch), Bumblebee, Vox, Poison Ivy.

Justice Alliance Mid 1980s to 1990s-Wonder Woman (Nubia), Animal Man (Garfield Logan), Raven, Gloss, Jet, Cyborg, Gypsy, Vibe

Justice Alliance The Present-Wonder Woman (Cassandra), Mr. Terrific (Michael Holt), Argent, Aztek, Zauriel, Hero Cruz, Sungirl, Persuader, The Disruptor (Angelica Smith), Anima

I can totally agree with your first two paragraphs but after that I'm not so sure.  I always thought if I could re-do DC I would have the Justice League come together for the first time to fight the Greek Gods.  Then some time after the defeat of the Greek Gods I would introduce the New Gods.

So you want to make the greek gods the new gods?  That sounds like a bad idea.

Interesting stuff, give it a shot in fan fic.

The only things I'd change in a fan-reboot of DC is to eliminate all the redundant superheros, only one Flash,one GL, which is why I think they arent as popular as the top two Superman & Batman. Everyone may have a favorite of the 4+ versions, however that splits the fanbase, & also makes it harder to follow. No, Jay is the Flash, Alan is the GL corp member, you also get rid of the golden/silver age split, so Liberty Belle & others are active in the present. As for the redundants, they would be active on parellel earths. Earth-4 would feature the charlton characters as the Watchmen League, E5 has Captain Marvel leading a League, E10 has the quality comics as the Freedom league, & they would have the redundants, John Stewart as the GL with the Freedom League, Guy on the Shazam League, Johnny Chambers as the Flash in the Watchmen League etc.

As for the modern day versions using golden age ids, they'd be from a few years into the future, &/or their kids, grown side kicks etc. Jessie Chambers, Jade etc.

The only change to WW I'd make is have Donna Troy be descended from amazons, rescued by WW from a building fire, & then when she becomes WW years later on, Cassandra would be her side-kick. Also, introduce a WonderBoy who would form & lead a Teen titans like team of the opposite gendered sick-kicks, Supergirl, Batgirl, Hawkgirl, Miss Martian etc.
