As one of the holdovers of Flashpoint, I am enjoying the fact that Wonder Woman is still residing in London. Thus far the connection to London itself though has been more or less arbitrary as the action has focused in large part on Olympus or Themyscira (or Sudan I guess.) What has been shown of London is mostly all too generic, either Diana going to a punk bar (at least I think it was) after she found out about her real lineage. Another generic thing though which caught my attention was that in the most recent issue when she battles Poseidon, she does so beneath the Tower Bridge. In a sense I don't mind this, it is kind of famous and I am sure some comic book artists want a chance at drawing it, but on the other hand it displays a pretty poor imagination on the part of the creative team. I have mentioned before that it would be nice to see some more exotic locales in comics. Movies does this all the time as real world places stand in for fabricated sets, but this provides a real example of a missed chance. Instead of Tower Bridge there are many just as famous bridges in London, or if a battle is desired there are numerous landmarks still close enough to the water to make it a plausible location. This is really not the case with London either as most cities get either the generic atmospheric setting or the cliched locale for the action. For the new 52 which is trying to shake things up a bit more, it would be good to see a breakthrough in this old staple of comics and to finally see some other parts of the cities in which the characters reside.
