Okay... so I'll admit I don't know much about WW, but what the heck is Clark talking about Her losing her powers out of costume?

OK, this is just debris from Heinhack's Annual (oh how I loathe that man).

Basically, he had Circe cast a spell (Circe! Like we need more fucking Circe!) that made it so Wonder Woman would lose her powers when she would spin into her "civilian" (I call it FALSE) identity.

Now, forgetting for a moment that her powers were granted to her by the gods themselves, and forgetting for a moment the sheer lack of story-telling opportunities that it presents, here's the REAL problem:

Diana, in her FALSE identity, powerless, could be walking down the street, and get show and killed in a drive by. Wonder Woman could be hit by a bus, and killed. Now, ask yourself: Would Diana take this chance? Of course not. She knows her responsibility to the world, to the human race, to her mother, to her sisters, to everyone.

So, what should she do? Just not do the ludicrous and nostalgia-inspired "Wonder Spin" to change. Be Wonder Woman, then put on normal clothes. Duh.

But for some INANE reason, everyone, from Gail to Kurt to DiDio seems to be running with this stupid, stupid, stupid piece of shit character development that Heinhack came up with.


You know, there are creators whom I don't really respect (Liefeld, Byrne, Millar, to name a few), but there are none I would kick in the junk, except for one: Heinhack. That piece of shit almost single-handedly destroyed the WW franchise. I'd spit in his face, and not feel a moment's remorse.


OK, I think all of that was probably more than you wanted or needed, in terms of an answer. :) But there ya go.

Yeah, I sorta went off into rant mode there. :)

But hey, at least I answered the question, right?




But WW is one of the reasons I even read comics in the first place. What Heinberg did (and it goes WAY beyond story-telling and characterization) was utterly unforgivable. Demanding a new #1 when they were considering finally renumbering WW to bring it into line with Superman and Batman, for instance, is a gross example of hubris. The massive delays. The total Lynda Carter-fed (and hey! Lynda was my first crush! I had feelings for her that I didn't even understand) nostalgia trip. All of it.

UGH!

That is at least part of the plan. Possibly a trip to ballet, as well.
