I say that in quotes because no one ever really asked for this giant revamp, though when you consider I new 2 people out of every 10 of my friends were actually reading DC titles, maybe something had to give. My gut feeling though...this ain't it. I will reserve my nerd rant for the one figure that is front and center...Wonder Woman.
So you thought putting pants on the strongest female figure in all of comics was the worst thing that could happen..huh?! Gone is the regal expression...that flat out determined scowl and air that she knows 50 ways to take down any opponent and has the power to do it. All that strength replaced with a little girl's pouty lips and cutesy upturned nose. While we are on a roll, please note the height. Is she not an Amazon anymore? Does the new reality driven DC Universe call for their Wonder Woman to be a hip chick in the heart of New York City just trying to make ends meet and come to terms with an estranged father and oddball mother? HOLY CRAP! I feel as if I need to shut down my imagination long enough to see what they will actually do with the character, lest I go on a larger rant based on what horrors I could come up with. I mean..its not like they'll make her the center of a multi-media empire with dolls to sign off on and a wacky cast of misfits playing her support staff, right? I mean...that would just be ridiculous.
