Stipulations:

· Nobody that has already written for her

· Nobody that is just going to mock her history

· Someone that is willing to invest their time and interest in the character

Would Snyder even still be considered a new writer? Unless you meant new to the character.

Would Mark Millar count? I haven't read Red Son yet, so I don't know if she was in it.

Also Frank Miller...

@timelordscience: Sorry for the misunderstanding. I meant just new writers that would be better than Finch.

@somayareece: my vote would be for Tynion & Doyle, or Becky Cloonan. Or Blackman and Williams III.

Actually I would just say Snyder, he's a batfan now because he's writing him, but apparently he already has some ideas kicking around about Wonder Woman. And I'd rather see him have ago at her monthly than anyone short of Morrison.

@silverpool: Yes she was in it and like many before him, Millar pretty much took a sh*t on Wonder Woman. In a nutshell, she spent her nights and days swooning over Superman though unfortunately her feelings weren't reciprocated. Then somehow Batman captured her, put her on a leash and used her as a bait to catch Superman. She then broke her indestructible lasso to release herself but suffered irreversible damage that soured her relationship with Superman. Because she resented him, Wonder Woman joined Luthor's campaign against Superman. However he just casually swat her away like she was nothing but a nuisance to him. Red Son is one of those macho comic book stories that portray women as submale, emotion-driven creatures that God created to service men. Apart from that, it's a good book.

The correct answer is Genevieve Valentine.

For what, so we can get a year of stories about some cat Wonder Woman adopts?

I think Amanda Conner would work well as a Wonder Woman writer. I'd like to see what Toshio Maeda could do with Wonder Woman. Jim Balent would make a good writer for Wonder Woman. Frank Miller could make a good writer for Wonder Woman. Mark Rahner could make a good Wonder Woman writer by comparison to some writers since Messner-Loebs. I'd be very interested in seeing Alan Moore's take on Wonder Woman. I'd also be very interested in seeing Matt Wagner's take on Wonder Woman. There is an extensive list of writers who may produce a story that would match my tastes, but, I don't know them, because I haven't been sampling a large lost of comics lately. But, everything would be a big wash without the right artist. Amanda Conner is a good artist. Ed Banes would have to be a good artist. Holly Golightly would make a good artist. Mike Deodato would make a good artist. Terry and Rachel Dodson would make a good artist. Jay Anacleto would make a good artist. But Wonder Woman would have to be moved to a mature or adult comic to be made correctly; we have to pick back up with something like Wonder Woman and the Secret Six by Gail Simone without holding back.

Would you like it better if she strangles the cat and stabs it to death while screaming "For Themyscira!" ?

So she strangles and stabs herself instead? :)

Which was a mini-series. And doesn't convince me to turn against Snyder.

Kieron Gillen (The Wicked +The Divine)..... That feels like a no brainer. That cat can write the $#!% out of some gods. Hell drag Jamie McKelvie with him, and put him on art...... This thread is now making me mad.

I completely agree with this. Snyder is an incredible writer and Batman is just one of his many amazing stories. He writes deep and engaging books that really hook the reader in and add so many interesting character developments. I really feel like he would add so much to the character of Wonder Woman. He would know how to play up her strengths beautifully.

He isn't a new writer. I need to edit that out.

@outside_85: I didn't turn against him, I just won't buy a book that he writes that's has Superman in it because I think he doesn't get the character.

His reasoning for why he used the Justice League in Endgame means he would have Batman show up in his Wonder Woman books as well--just to prove Batman is awesome.

I would have to go with Snyder, his ideas are usually pretty fresh but I wouldn't want him on the book for an extended period of time. Maybe a limited series for her 75th anniversary.

I have to disagree with that, Wonder Woman nearly killed him and would have too if it wasn't for that artifact. In fact she and Superman were the ones who did the most damage to Batman during that fight. I just wish we would have been able to see Green Lantern and Cyborg in the fight but I guess you can't win them all.

@gustavoburciaga1: Wonder Woman didn't actually do any damage to him, but that's besides the point: the use of the Justice League according to Snyder was only for props.

He basically just uses the Justice League members to make Batman look cooler.
