Isn't this story an elseworld? Changes are expected. As long as the story is good, who cares. Another thing you learn from the podcast is that Morrison has done his homework on the character and her creator.

Looking forward to it. This book should be good. One shot, non canon stories are allowed to veer away from the mainstream elements.

This all sounds interesting to me. The only enraging part of it all for me was that they don't yet have a release date.

Also, Wonder Woman will have "dozens of costumes," and in this new origin, will no longer be formed from clay. (Morrison said that aspect of that character was "creepy" and made her "too remote.")

Interesting ... guess he is not very religious!

With regards to his religious beliefs, Morrison identifies himself as a practicing Chaos magician. In addition to his magickal beliefs and practices, Morrison's belief system incorporate a number of esoteric beliefs. See, for example, his interview here:

Guess not

Funny, gods turn people to spiders and bring inanimate objects to life on whims, but the clay thing is creepy. Is this the same man who gave me the painting that ate Paris.lol

That Morrison. Love him

@lilben42: While I do agree with you, Morrison might just make it seem less stupid and actually develop her identity well.

It's always funny to me that so many people get upset when there are changes to a character, and yet so many people also get upset at a character's origin. These were both parts of Marston's original version of the character, and I don't mind them. Sure, they set a pretty obvious type of tone - hard to do a gritty, realistic take on the character if she's riding Kangas, but in the right hands these elements can still work. Darwyn Cooke, for instance, did a great job of using the invisible plane in New Frontier, even though, on the surface, the invisible plane is a pretty silly concept.

@dmessmer: the invisible plane is dumb as hell

I'd be more keen on this if Didio had let Rucka do it as originally planned.

@dmessmer: the invisible plane is dumb as hell

Usually, I agree. But have you read New Frontier? It was pretty awesome in that book. I thought it worked in the Wonder Woman animated movie, too. And if a writer is portraying the character in a certain tone it has its place. Plus, how can we hate something that gave us priceless moments like this:

@dmessmer: y would she need it if she can fly?

#21 Edited by Akindoodle (1021 posts) - - Show Bio

@jointron33: because she couldn't fly originally

That aside, I'm excited about this but I'd love if they did a Rucka version as well. Why not let her have TWO elseworld books? Supes and Bats have dozens

#22 Posted by darknightspideyfanboy (1266 posts) - - Show Bio

@jointron33: it would be interesting if she needed at the beginning cause she didn't know how to fly and when she does learn how to fly she gives the plane to Trevor

ugh.................

Ok Azzarello haters, imagine a Wonder Woman story with the current creative team, but with Perez era continuity (except for Steve as the love interest).
