I've had a few people lately call Wonder Woman a jerk and say she is violent. I noticed that everyone who says that just reads Johns version of her in Justice League. It's a real big turn off to the character. Anybody else see this?
Is Johns Wonder Woman ruining her image?
Sadly I noticed this with issue 1 of JL, even if she didnt get into a fight, going through a wall, shouting at a TV and waving a sword around as she walks down the sidewalk told me Johns Wonder Woman wasnt going to be terribly clever, and apparently quite violent judging by both Steve's and the protestors comments.
I like the way she is written I am sorry you all are unhappy about it.
and on a side note I think she should hang with Hawkman more, kicking ass and taking names.
Unfortunately she already has Orion to deal with... now Hawkcaveman, Orion and the other Hawk-dude should have a night on the town, that could be fun... just not for the town.
Can any Wonder Woman fans tell me if they liked how she was written in Batwoman?
I thought she seemed like a decent character in that, but as I'm not yet a Wonder Woman fan/reader, I don't know how 'correct' it was.
Is the only way to be a woman in the JL is to a bitch?
Biggest disappointment is that this WW has no real goal or ideals. You could replace her easily with the Hulk or Lobo. This is not a step up. As I have said before, wonder if those who love this take on her EVER liked her at all before New 52. Definitely, not for everyone. And this is not the sign of a writer having a good grasp of a major icon.
I don't like the way Johns writes her at all. She seems to have three aspects to her in Justice League: she likes to fight things, she's Superman's girlfriend, and she has no idea how the world works. It upsets me that he's turned her into a stereotypical "warrior woman" when she is so much more.
In Johns defense he's hardly the first writer to portray WW as violent. Seems to be a thing that pops up in a lot of JL related stuff for whatever reason. Heck, it's prominent enough that they went with it for her failed TV show.
I personally love the violence, it's refreshing.
true! i am 100% behind this sentence. and here is why, i like a WW that does not back off that is Unrelenting in her Pursuit of truth.sometimes you just have to () chock a b***** :D
@starrk_coyote: I feel like the violent outburst here was completely unnecessary. She's already attacked Hephaestus over a misunderstanding in her own book, and she felt bad for that. I really don't understand why she would do it again, especially since he aided her and all she had to do was ask him about the box. None of this hit first, ask questions later junk.
Brian Azzarello simply does not write Wonder Woman as a "fighty, smashy" comic. Despite it being the best run since Rucka and the best selling WW line since...ever...one major flaw of the book is failing to display Wonder Woman's power levels. It's not a traditional superhero book. It's more in line with Fables or Sandman.
There a few to no feats of power in the book. Which is fine because the awesome story makes up for it.
@lilben42: Yep, I think she appalling in Johns, but also just plain ridiculous in Azzerrelo. She´s supposed to be a symbol of peace. People need to stop writing whats in, this whole dark Batman/Wolverine/Iron Man craze. There is place in the world for people who are plain heroes, and thats what WW symbolizes to me. Not some jerk who brags about snuffing out her enemies like shes some mob boss above the law. They are ruining her legacy, its kind of getting disgusting.
@darknightspideyfanboy: ... Yeah no thanks. But if you want something similar to that go read an indie book featuring a kill crazy amazon god of war. That or read her "Ame Comi" version where she's depicted as a God of WSr that you want.
