For those who think the new 52 WW(in her own book as there are 2 different versions), may I ask what did you like about WW before new 52?

I am looking for pesrspective here. Not to challenge or shoot anyone down for their opinion.

Again, pre-new 52- what did you like about the character of WW?

strong, not a gimmicky version of any existing male characters, interesting outside of her team . interesting villains, power set. tough.

given i came in late to the DC party . i got into DC with blackest night but read infinite crisis (loved how she did what she had to, by snapping maxwell lord's neck ) and every need-to-know arc before flashpoint came around. still a fan of wonder woman in n52

I don't like how Geoff Johns portrays her as a hothead. Like when she fought her teammates I was like that was stupid Diana would never fight her teammates over a stupid reason like that. She would talk it out.

I liked that she was more of a diplomat and a symbol of peace. In the Azzarello run she's protective of her friends, but there hasn't been much focus on her larger mission or what her broader goals are. I also don't like the retcons that Azzarello did with the Amazons - they have previously been the foundation of her emotional strength, but Azzarello killed them off then revealed that they were a bunch of man-killing shrews.

I HATE the new origin.

I HATE what was done to the Amazons.

I HATE the lack of depth contained in Wonder Woman and her mythos. Everything was oversimplified to the point of banality.

We have all these new characters that I don't care about, taking up space, while my favorites are still in limbo. I miss the sisterhood between Wonder Woman and the Amazons, as well as the other super-heroines/adventurers that stem from her.

What I miss most is the Wonder Woman Family: Wonder Woman, Donna Troy, Artemis, Wonder Girl, Fury, Hippolyta and Nubia. That would have been a much better Wonder Woman Army than anything Azzarello could come up with.

@dmessmer: This one million times. I really hadn't seen WW diplomatic side yet. If you have read Countdown to Infinite Crisis no one believed in Ted Kord. He felt like a loser. Then Diana came and she was so nice and sincere and said she believed in him. Those are the moments I want to see.
