Well, then, if that's the attitude they're going to take, I'm not going to watch it.

Best new design I've seen in YEARS

Nobody seems to get that the modern Wonder Woman is basically Superman as a chick, but with less concern about killing her opponents if the occasion requires it.

She can fly, she's super-strong, she's highly damage-resistant (and even more resistant to fire), she has telescopic vision, she has super-hearing, she has super speed (not like Flash, but she can fly at half the speed of light and dodge bullets), and she even has super-tactical skills (god-granted. An actual power from the gods). Batman himself has called her the finest melee fighter on the planet. Her costume was armor forged by the gods. Her lasso is unbreakable and compels people to be truthful, as well as being able to break mind-control and resist magic. She herself is highly resistant to magic, too.

And yet whenever they put her on TV, all we get is a slightly athletic-acting skinny girl with a rope. She's never portrayed as being on Superman's level, even though she  is on his level, and has been ever since Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Nope... It's always designed as a vehicle for some sort of weak soap opera in which Wonder Woman is always supposed to be 'balancing superheroism and getting a man' or some lame shiat like that.  Just write it like you would Batman or Superman, and try not to make her into Bridget Jones with magic bracelets, you dolts!

Coelacanth: You know what I'd like to see?

Steve Trevor dies and WW goes rogue because he was the only control the US ever had over her. She was an artificial (although magical) being who's mission was to destroy the Axis, the Nazis in particular. Now that Steve is gone and WW is able to sorta kinda think for herself, she goes after the Nazis here on American soil, ripping them apart like ready-to-eat roast chickens from your supermarket deli. But these days, there are so many groups and individuals running loose that qualify as Nazis, a fairly large portion of the American public are in danger.

Imagine WW playing Terminator.


Yeahhh....i'm going to have to say no to that. It totally goes against the whole character. WW was sent as an ambassador for peace, not an unstable killing machine. Yes, Wondy does fight, but she does it for the right reasons and doesn't rip her enemies in half either. Plus, the whole "Diana needs a man to keep her from going bonkers" thing makes no sense since she spent her whole life raised on an island devoid of men without going kookoo for Cocoa Puffs.

Contents Under Pressure: Mugato: Morena Baccarin, the girl from Firefly would work well.

[www2.pictures.zimbio.com image 431x594]

Indeed. David E Kelly is the wrong man for the job. Let's get Joss Whedon in on it. He knows how to treat female characters, keeping them interesting, three dimensional, and yet allowing the male viewers some eye candy without pissing off the female viewers.


Uh, should I tell you that Joss Whedon wanted to do WW with Cobie Smulders as Diana and DC said no?

/And DC/WB wonders why Marvel/Disney are kicking their ass...

KatjaMouse: Wonder Woman can work. I feel if they actually went straight back to its roots, almost like the Thor movie or the original Superman, and introduced the audience to this concept of otherness and exceptionalism then we could accept a divine heroine to walk among us. Allow her to have a fabulous warrior get up on the Island, hang out with Amazons in a spectacularly rendered backdrop and then she finds herself down in the dirt with humans and all that nice sheen has been rubbed off. She fights in jeans and a leather jacket, only breaks out the lasso on special occasions. Maybe a gay boyfriend makes her the 70s Wonder Woman costume (joke for the audience) and she's all "Aww hell naw". Ease the audience into this world of supernatural villains and heroes. Don't jump straight into having a single female lawyer donning the star spangled panties and fighting crime. Bring out the Greek style armor for the season finale.


I like the cut of your jib. Basically, if the writers took the current New52 storyline and did it just like that - it would be a really neat Fantasy/Comic story. Have Diana doing exactly what she's doing now in the comics, running around dodging the hissy fits of Greek Gods, preventing their stupidity from wrecking the world and saving an innocent baby in the meantime. Heck, the sidekick Hermes is awesome - toss him in there as well. Just use the New52. Screw all the old stuff. Do it.

And if they want a "single female lawyer" fighting crime as a superhero? Her name is Jennifer Walters, she is better known as She Hulk. Seriously, you want a campy/fun laugh at comic heroes? You want a character to break the fourth wall and laugh at herself? She Hulk.

It would be epic good.

I don't know, the lead chick from Bones did a decent job of pulling off the getup.

Any remake of Wonder Woman should be done by HBO to really play up the bondage theme central to the character.


yeah, i thought that was a nice costume... but, totally inappropriate to attend some kind of fbi party

PonceAlyosha: Good. I love Wonder Woman, especially Greg Rucka's Wonder West Wing run and the current New 52 stuff, but Wonder Woman does not translate into a television serialized drama. One, her backstory and secondary characters are hugely expensive to cast and depict. Of those secondary characters, ninety percent of them are nameless Amazons, no e who are it allowed to leave, thus can not interact with any outside plots unless you set the episodes on Themyscira.

Two, her foes are primarily mythological beasts, not criminals, making things more expensive.

If you want a reasonable DC property to adapt besides Green Arrow for live action, look at something like Gotham Central, Manhunter or the Secret Six or Orstrander era Suicide Squad.


Um..hello...Xena:Warrior Princess

For all you youngsters - the most beautiful woman in the universe gets nekkit in pre-WW "Bobbie Joe and the Outlaw". Also wears some amazing blue jeans and tight halter tops.

"Wonder Woman" would work if it were basically Xena set in modern times. Put it in syndication or on Netflix. Give WW an ambiguously homoerotic sidekick. Cast Bruce Campbell as Zeus. Book it. Done.

It's just shiatty IP, the character stinks.

Plus they can never decide if they want it to be a girl power thing or just a cleavage fest for 13 year old boys and budding lesbians.

It's a paradox worthy of comics: You can't take the character seriously without changing the costume, yet, if you change the costume it's not "Wonder Woman" anymore.
