Grant Morrison's Wonder Woman.

Us Viners have been debating which Wonder Woman is better Johns or Azz's. But now there is new player , Grant Morrison. His untitled Wonder Woman series is almost finished and really just needs an artist. I wonder how this will compare to Johns or Azz's. Will she be Johns overzealous warrior or Azz's family peacekeeper? Or will she be someone else? Grant was interviewed by Newsarama. This is what he had to say:

"Wonder Woman is more... unified, I think. The original idea of Wonder Woman was pretty sound. And I think the other great idea of Wonder Woman was her TV show with Lynda Carter. So I'm going to try to do something that's got all of that. As I told you, I've been working my way through the entire history of feminism, and I'm doing my research, and I'm talking to everyone, and my wife is leaning over my shoulder. So I really want to make it a particularly good book."

"It's different from Superman and Batman, because I think Wonder Woman... there have been different Wonder Womans — you know, the mod, 1960s, Wonder Woman. But we're trying to unify everything into a... I don't know if I can answer this one, Vaneta. I think this is more like All-Star Superman than how I did Batman, you know? Because I actually took a really different approach to Wonder Woman than I did with Batman, where I was combining all the ages into one man's life. And I worked it out on a 15-year timescale... when he was 25 and met Talia, and on from there. And I had all that worked out."

"But with Wonder Woman, I kind of read a bunch of stories and then ignored them all. This is like a completely new version of Wonder Woman."

I dont know about u guys but I excited for it.

@SNascimento: I think something like Earth One or All Star.

Yeah, I remember reading about this. I thought it had been dropped and that Multiversity would be Morrison's last DC work, but apparently not. If it's anything like All-Star Superman - where the character's entire personality and mythos have been distilled into one perfect series - I'm definitely looking forward to it. Morrison was the one who made Superman one of my favorite characters, so I'm hoping he can do the same for Diana.

@Veshark: I agree man, I hope this revializes her. I dont like really like the Nu 52 WW all although Azz's verison is starting to grow on me. ( I hate Johns' WW.) I hope this is the one for me. Grant Morrison should not leave DC. They should give him Johns job as Chief Creative Officer.

what can we say?,wonder woman has been souch a victim of bad writting in the past,she needs a reborn,new 52 hasn't done much for her,but they haven't done anything bad to her either,which is good after the terrible years before the rebot.

i hope they keep doing a good work for her and revive her again,the new start should be something that makes her good,gives her a better future.

I hope Morrison is still working on Wonder Woman Earth One. I'd buy and read the hell out of that.

Finally! I've been waiting so long for this moment. I have complete faith in Morrison's, I'm pretty sure he's interpretation of WW will be far more superior than Azz's or Johns. As for the artist I I say Adam Hughes will the perfect artist for the series.

Last thing I heard was that Yanick Paquette was supposed to be the artist. Don't know if that's the case anymore, but it's an awesome choice IMO.

I think he will make an amazing portrayal of Diana.I read his interview and from what I read it looks great.

Ugh, Johns' WW is just plain uncomfortable. For me, I've never been especially fond of the character though I do like her, and I enjoyed her appearances in JL/JLU and the Wonder Woman animated movie. But that's how it started for me and Supes, yet after reading All-Star Superman he's my number two favorite now! So I'm really hoping that Morrison can do the same for Wonder Woman.

I think it would be cool if Morrison left for some time to cool off though. He's been writing Batman nonstop since 2006, so he should definitely get a well-earned break. He could go freelance; maybe write a few things here and there for DC, but maybe a little time away might be beneficial.

@Veshark: Like I said before I agree. Johns' WW is basically a stereotypical female warrior. She very bland and has no personality. And she is very needy and naive for a hero working for five years. And the Superman/ Wonder Woman romance ugg. I didnt like it from the begining but Johns or Lobdell have shown me otherwise.
