“Wonder Woman is in many ways a sterling example of everything that is right and wrong with DC. Here is a character noteworthy more because of her legacy and her potential than anything else. Here is a character with a long history of being more iconic than well-rounded. Here is a character who has become notorious for being difficult to write or to understand. Here is a character the public (even the non-comic-reading public) is invested in but doesn’t know why.
In short, Wonder Woman is the kind of character the DC reboot was made for: an iconic character with a long, confused history who would benefit from a fresh start. That said, given all the missteps and regressive creative decisions that have hampered the reboot so far (barring a few extraordinary exceptions—like the rest of the internet, I am smitten with Animal Man and certainly onboard with a few other titles), I had very low expectations for Wonder Woman.
Boy was I wrong.”
I wrote a review of the pleasantly surprising Wonder Woman #1 at Death-Ray Ozone! It’ll make you want to practice deflecting bullets with your wrists!
