Does it bother anyone else like how manly she is in Injustice? Her face is barely feminine then her body...ugh her brought shoulders and CHEST MUSCLES ARE YOU FOR REAL?

Because women can't be muscled? I like it, it fits her. She's a warrior, an Amazon and now she looks like she can kick some serious ass. And not feminine? Really? I think she looks very feminine (like her counterpart in that red dress).

Oh thank you, yes, this pisses me off so much I stay up late crying in bed about it! I mean she has an adams apple, but its so bloody prominent its like a Adam, Steve, Bill and Jake apple. The most annoying thing about Wonder Woman in the game, is why does she have a beard? I don't mind that she has pants, but did they really have to give her a beard? So yes I am very bothered by this revolting unfeminine injustice. Someone needs to lace her lasso with estrogen.

WOW! I don't think it's that bad, her face could have been more demure but I like her physical presence in the game.

If any of the women look like a man, it's Raven... I mean, that face... and she has the voice to match.

That's funny because in Hal's story trailer she had her normal voice from the Tv show.

In the same scene in game, it was distorted. That was either early footage without the distortion that for some reason they rushed into a trailer, or they were just trolling us...

Just saying but powerful women doesn't mean manly. Then again everyone does look kinda weird in the game. It's not an issue I'm deeply disgruntled by though

They really should have looked at these. This is how she looks her best, when drawn by Lee or Rocafort.

I get where the people talking about her being an amazon are coming from, but I think they forget, or neglect the fact that she is supposed to be as beautiful as Aphrodite (the goddess of Beauty).

Manly?? Dude, I'd still ravage her. Granted, if I were a hypothetical video game character made of polygons and very questionable judgement calls.

She looks like a m#thaf#@%ing DUDE!

The Wonder Man pic posted above looks more feminine than Injustice Wonder Woman. It's not that we want Barbie, all we're saying is tptb should keep in mind that "the Beauty of Aphrodite" is in her power set and "powerful" is not solely synonymous with masculinity or muscles. Jean Grey has always looked powerful as Dark Phoenix, but she's never looked like a dude.

To each is his own. But I hope you're ready for a lot of doggy style. She isn't the one bending over.

lol im just playing

Though I do have to say she has the best body(at the torso and down but just a tad too muscular for my tastes.)

A picture a real life Wonder Woman looking muscular but reasonably so. The problem is most people don't know how to properly design her body. Some artists make her look absolutely perfect, then others either have her looking too manly or have her proportions looking really off. They should pick a woman with a really great feminine muscular structure to pattern her figure after and keep it consistent.

Uh, definitely not what I meant. I just prefer Diana looking like the physical definition of an Amazon. She is an Amazon after all. She's a god damn warrior and sexy as hell. I'm just not one for T&A because it's usually done it poor taste for the sake of the male audience. I love celebrating the woman's body, but it's guys who actually seem opposed to anything that isn't T&A and shaming a woman's body if it isn't up to their standards. Just because she doesn't fit someone standard of beauty doesn't change the fact she can kick ass.

These are DC Amazons, they can look any way an artist depicts them. Why look at an ugly picture when it could be a pretty one? Men are the majority of the comic book buyers and game players, it makes sense that the images they contain would be designed to appeal to them.

Injustice Wonder Woman just isn't appealing.

For what I know gamers are 50/50 so it's fair, the important is the quality of the game. I only didn't liked the neck and chest areas, very weird.

So what you're saying when it comes to comics and video games is that a female opinion is insignificant? I have no problem with how people prefer characters to look. But you have previously said that I find the female form repulsive, which I never said btw. I love the female form and appreciate it. I'm proud of our bodies. And now you are implying the female demographic shouldn't be considered. I buy my comics every week. I buy my games. And yet here I'm being told by you DC shouldn't be bothered trying to appeal to me. That is essentially what you are saying. I find this game appealing so obviously according to your standards they're doing something wrong.

I like how Wonder Woman looks in this game. I admit, I prefer sexy and strong over T&A. Sexiness is subjective, dude. Build a bridge and get over it.

Because she is an amazon warrior. It's kind of hard NOT to be slightly manly when you kick ass for a living.

Preach it, girl! I'm so tired of my opinions being considered invalid in the comicbook world. Why is everyone so territorial for though? It's not as if one of our opinions will somehow cause the destruction of comicdom. That is something we don't want to happen.

As mentionned many times above Diana has an exquisite face due to her fine lineage and aphrodite's blessing (you know the goddess of beauty, not the goddess of Man face). It is one thing to be athletic / muscular another to have an ugly face,

A woman, can be muscular and yet not have Kevin Sorbo's face

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned how obnoxiously large her boobs are in the game. At first I tried to tell myself that it's just the armor that makes them look huge, but there are skins where she isn't wearing armor and those boobs are still obnoxious. I know that's a trend in comics in general (though, seriously, can't we please, please, please get past that trend), but the other women in the game don't have such obnoxiously large boobs. Why did they only do that to Wonder Woman?

As for the face, I agree they could have softened it a little, but all of the faces in the game look a little weird, and seem to have been built off the same basic model. I do my best to ignore all of the pointy noises and weird eyes on all of the characters (male and female alike) and focus on pulling off complicated combos.
