Since I’ve seen the Wonder Woman movie, I’ve become obsessed with her. I have read all of her titles available here from 1942 to 2015 (hope they fill in the missing Golden Age issues soon), and I’ll be caught up to the present soon. I love the character, the tie-in with Greek mythology, her mission of peace and justice, her background in war, Paradise Island (or Themiscyra), Hippolyta and the Amazons, Etta Candy, Steve Trevor, Wonder Girl, Wonder Mite, and especially Wonder Tot (and therein lies some strange plots where Wonder Woman teamed up with her younger selves by her mother mixing footage from various times in her life to create a movie of Wonder Woman teaming up with herself. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Odd flex but okay, as they say).
Anyway, I have heard tell that a lot of people find her boring, or silly, or just plain bad. They are, of course, completely and totally wrong but I would still be interested in hearing their reasoning. I will say that I have not enjoyed seeing her as a supporting character. Perhaps she looses her luster in a group setting, or writers are not sure what to do with her on a team.
Now, my wife insist I spent too much time watching Superfriends and the Wonder Woman tv show as a child and that this is just another silly obsession in my life, but my only response to that is my life has been a string of silly obsessions and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Perhaps seeing the new movie awoke a slumbering admiration for her. Who can say?
I haven’t seen a lot of buzz about her here. Only one fan group? Preposterous! (And I haven’t been checking it out because I am worried about spoilers. Some fan I am!). So what do you think of Wonder Woman? Trinity level DC icon, or just another rather dull heroine?
