@arkhamace: "Wannabe WW fans like you should die(metaphor) because you are damaging wonder woman." Your words, dude. You say you really meant fans like him should die, but what does that even mean? Passionate fans, ones who curse, ones who are emotional in their responses because they care about a character? Or just ones who happen to disagree with your opinion because they are "ruining Wonder Woman"? I didn't throw oil onto any fire, and I didn't instigate any disagreement that wasn't already taking place. I commented that not much has changed in the state of the WW boards with the exception of the new "fans like you should die(metaphor)".

Oh look, more of the "I'm more of a fan than you since your opinion isn't the same as mine!" Now with metaphorical calls for death. That's just great...

@agent41: I didn't say all of her villains are motivated by jealousy, I just don't want another Veronica Cale situation. Setting someone up to be a legitimate foe for WW, having her be brilliant and intimidating, only to have their entire motivation be jealousy is weak storytelling IMO. "I'm jealous of you, so I'm going to try to destroy the world *insert villainous cackle*". It'd be like Lex Luthor constantly trying to kill Superman for not being bald.

Can we please not have another female villain whose whole issue with WW is "I'm jealous of you"? It doesn't make for good stories, it doesn't make for good characterization, and it's overwhelmingly cliche.

@saint_sophie: "Martial arts are codified systems and traditions of combat practices. A martial artist studies and practices said martial arts..."

So what Diana's been doing her whole life under the Amazons?

@outside_85: Not to mention the ploy of "look, a woman is writing WW, are we progressive now?" Unfortunately, that worked on a lot of people.

@saint_sophie: If it's based off pure powerless h2h feats then, yeah, batman would win all day every day. I don't think she's the best fighter in the world, but I think (even without powers) someone who trained under the amazons and the embodiment of physical warfare could competently keep up with Batman

@scouterv: Definitely possible about the warrior thing; it's very realistic take on them. The rest of his design is very similar to the Dawn of Justice WW promo picture
