Wonder Woman is Not the Problem |
the “problem” with Wonder Woman is that most people don’t know how to deal with an unapologetically feminist character. Writers panic. Executives panic. The way that women in particular are written in Hollywood is so vastly different to the way that superheroes tend to be written, that when the two concepts are combined, fear and cosmetics companies and ice-cream tend to get thrown at the resulting mess until it goes away.

Unless Joss Whedon is doing the writing, but he can’t be everywhere at once, people.

But you know what?

Wonder Woman is not the problem.

How peace-loving Wonder Woman became a goddess of war
As one of the few continuously published superheroes in comics, with each passing decade Wonder Woman in particular has reflected America’s changing and evolving political systems and attitudes toward gender. In her current iteration, she’s taken on the role of the God of War, a stance that creates conflict within her due to her longstanding commitment to nonviolence.

So which is the “real” Wonder Woman? And will the movie really change something fundamental about her character?
To answer that question, we have to look at the way the character has functioned over the years—and how we wound up where we are now.

Comrades in Arms (series)
Bruce Wayne and Wally West have a long history together, going back to when Wally was a kid with a crush and Bruce was too busy being Batman to notice. Now they're both adults and in the wake of the revelations of the Justice Lords the two of them are growing closer together, even as the world (and Lex Luthor) conspire to keep them apart.

*series of 10 fic, the last is a WIP
