I was & still loving the current take on Wonder Woman; though, I am seriously missing the Wonder in the book. Diana seems to be a mere bystander in her own title simply watching her new dysfunctional family quibble back & forth. She has shown very little feats of Wonder in her own title & to see her as a real superhero I have to rely on the Justice League title. On top of that, to see her REAL supporting cast I have to turn to the Justice League title as well. Thank God Steve has become such an important part of the team & it is great to see the 'New' Etta as his assistant, a nice play on their former incarnations' relationship. However, I find it offensive that Azerrello appears to have wiped out several of Diana's past supporting cast members & replaced them with generic version of the same characters. I find it offensive that I have to turn to other titles to see Diana (& other Amazons) performing feats of Wonder. I find it offensive that Cassie has (so far) been removed from the Wonder Family (& Diana has been given her origin). I find it offensive that to find any reminisce of other past Wonder Woman characters I have to turn to other DCnU titles to see cloned versions;
- Rama in Capt. Atom
- Circe in Men Of War
- Dr. Psycho in Action Comics
- Grace in Superboy
And finally to add insult to injury, nine months in & still no Donna Troy!?!?!?!
If the book is going to be such a departure to the title DC should seriously consider a second title (Sensation Comics) & feature stories in which Diana is actually being Wonder Woman & facing off against her rogues gallery! Creators complain she has a weak rogues gallery, but hell! A weak rogues gallery is better than no rogues gallery at all. And in reality Diana’s rouges are not weak because they are only as weak or strong as the writer’s imagination.
