Poll: Would fans accept a Magical Girl WW? (24 votes)

Yes 46%
No 54%

Like, a Sailor Moon esque Elseworlds?

Diana could be sent Man's World by Hippolyta, and goes to high school with Steve Trevor and Etta Candy.

She could have a Amazon Scouts team to combat the forces if Ares. These could be:

Wonder Woman(Diana of Themyscira)

Troia(Donna Troy)

Wonder Girl(Cassie Sandsmark)

Shimtar(Artemis of Bana Migdhall)

Nubia(......Nubia)

They could have colorful costumes and fight the monsters that Ares sends against them. Ares could also have his own team of villain girls who are actually students at the high school.

Cheetah(Barbara Minerva)

Silver Swan(Valerie Beaudry)

Circe(Donna Milton)

Giganta(Doris Zuel)

Doctor Poison(Maru Yamaguchi)

There could romance and lame jokes and special poweruo weapons that are in magical girl anime. On top of that, it could easily be marketable to girls.

It depends on what you mean by "accept." Would I read that comic book? No. Would I have a problem with it existing? Also no. There are multiple takes on a lot of characters that target different demographics (Spider-Man for instance). I'd be fine with Wonder Woman getting that same treatment.

@tektheninja: wg is a character in this but she doesn't have the supporting cast Diana does

Maybe they could all have animals too, like Mew Mew Power.

Diana could have a Pegasus, troia a Minotaur, Cassie a kanga, Nubia an elephant, and Artemis a sphinx

Basically pitch this thing as Sailor Moon or Mew Mew Power but with Wonder Woman

It would definitely help in making the character more accessible to a broader audience, as well as a potentially international one.

wonder woman is very well known worldwide,and she has had successful runs worldwide,if this is about success,she doesn't need to be a magical girl to be successful worldwide,she had had worldwide success with some of her runs and with a proper writter and promotion she can be successful again and reach an even bigger amount of success worldwide than before.

Sure as an ELSEWORLD version! I am always interested in seeing artist do thing creative with characters, this would be on par with the Tangent universe.

I don't see how it would hurt unless by some fluke it became so well liked it surpassed mainstream Wonder Women and DC made that the status quo; then I'm sending Superboy Prime down to DC HQ with some Black Lanterns!

They would need to keep it serious though, if they hope to transition that audience to the mainstream version at some point or else the audience might not even give the comic a chance as they grow out of the Magical Girl phase...if they do!

I'm not knocking it, just not my cup of tea. I might buy it for my daughter. Again, I'm not opposed to it.

I think it would work well for a kid's show like Batman BAtB.
