She's definitely showing a little too much bicep.  Ooh la la.

A gunny sack with an eye slit and a cape?

I like this alternative take on Wonder Woman that showed up last year:

thanley.files.wordpress.com

Plus, a western take on WW would make for a cool movie.

That's pretty awesome. I can imagine Lone Ranger meets Indiana Jones story lines. I can also imagine a little fire in her eyes when I call her, "Little Filly".

Oh please. With as much skin as she shows?

That would be Muslim-country Wonder Woman.

There was a really cool Elseworld one shot called Justice Riders

img2.wikia.nocookie.net
It also included Ted Kord as an eccentric inventor and Booster Gold as a mercenary.

Best part: No Batman or Superman (Though writer Clark Kent shows up near the end of the story)

Written by Chuck Dixon, who always wrote great action plots.

Unfortunately, a combination of his age and political views got him sort of blackballed from the big two.

Wonder Woman wouldn't be a Muslim.  She originates from polytheistic Greek mythology and if DC is anything like Marvel, she knows several gods personally.  Hard to believe in Allah, who never actually appears or does anything, under those circumstances.

Notice the way she has been made younger,  her cheeks are flushed with sexual excitement, her toes are turned in like she needs to pee and the whole character seems less powerful and more like a comedy sidekick.

Also her ass is huge.

It wasn't his political views that got him in trouble, he rarely wrote those in his comic book work. His problem was because of the last minute editorial changes and creator changes (many successful books were killed because of Flashpoint, Final Crisis)

Now, you want to see a Wonder Woman with a big ol' ass that was the focal point of every panel she was in, check out Mike Sekowsky's work on the first 50-60 issues of the original Justice League of America book from the 1960s.

Wonder Woman had back.

They need to draw her wrapped in an Iranian or Saudi Flag. This would never happen in the US. Or wait maybe it will maybe that's the point

Here, we'll play choose your own adventure.

For "That's not what your mom said last night", turn to p. 186

My first thought, no female super hero would cover herself up because of male lust, she would just beat them down then put the lasso of truth on them to admit they only rape to cover up their hatred of women and their homosexual urges....
 
2014-02-18 09:19:51 AM
So she's wearing a Muslim scarf but it's also wearing parts of European armor? Idiot artist is idiot.
 
2014-02-18 09:30:06 AM
Islamic Batman?  Ra's al-Ghul or  Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad, minus the killing.

Islamic Superman?  Hmmm.  An
infinitesimally small change in the parameters of the launching of the pod containing baby Kal-El could have resulted in it landing in the Middle East instead of Kansas.  Maybe Kal would have been found and adopted by Wahhabi Bedouins instead of Ma and Pa Kent.  There could be a whole Elseworlds series of the Mujahid of Steel trying to commit spectacular acts of martyrdom and failing to die.  He wouldn't even need a plane to pull off 9-11.

2014-02-18 10:12:00 AM
So as long as her head and chest are covered, she can show all the leg and arm she wants to?  This obviously isn't about modesty.  The costume is awful and it looks nothing like WW.  Besides, I've always pictured her as taking a stand for women, not becoming some meek doll.

Ever read any of the non-comic book writings of the character's creator? He was deeply into bondage and submission.

Came to say something like this.

Really, are we just going to greenlight every time some DeviantArt chick draws a popular character a slightly different way or does some sort of mash-up between two existing IPs?

Yes, yes, yes... We get it. Some girls learned to draw from a book about drawing their own manga. And now they're posting all their drawings online. Hooray. Now kindly please stop writing feature articles about some random amateur's bad interpretation of a popular character. Unless they're drawn/painted with Alex Ross level of talent, spare us.

If we want bad art we already have Rob Liefeld. If we want horrible new costume designs, we have Jim Lee.

That was several universes and different Earths ago. That Earth doesn't even exist anymore in DC continuity, AFAIK.
 
2014-02-18 11:57:33 AM
And also, why would a woman who owes her existence to the Greek gods-- who has ACTUALLY spoken to them directly-- choose to worship another god such as Allah?!

This is the dumbest picture on the Internet today.

Wouldn't an unmarried female Muslim superhero require a male relative to escort her out of the house at all times?

That's definitely not the best of Deviantart.
