Sturmgard Rant: Wonder Woman Still Screwy

Wonder Woman Still Screwy

I just don't get it. She's the hottest super-heroine ever created, with ties to Greek Mythology. She's almost as strong as Superman without his weakness to kryptonite. She's almost as fast as the Flash, has a willpower to rival Green Lantern, and has intuitive skills just under those of Batman. What she does have is an invisible "plane" and a link to the Greek Gods to basically get whatever she needs. What more can you ask for?


What the hell is going on?!?!? I was hoping that INFINITE CRISIS was going to resolve these issues, not make more! Apparently, WW is also starring with Superman and Batman in a book named Trinity. The plot and concept behind this is not known to me, but it has to be better than her own book. Don't know why Wonder Woman is so hard to write about. George Perez did a great job revamping the character. Although, to tell the truth, I preferred the late 1970s Diana Prince/Wonder Woman character. She may have had continuity issues, but she at least did super-hero activities and was involved with the Justice League of America. It seems that the writers never bother to read what's going on in her title since she's all over the DC Universe every month, yet "exiled" to other dimensions or doing other things that preclude her from participating. She's not as pervasive as Superman, but I have no idea how she gets around so much - and still has so little of personal history left to use for story material.
