Wonder Woman Joins the Fearless Defenders?!

Marvel plans to troll DC with a Wonder Woman analog in Fearless Defenders.



Source: CBR

Today, Marvel held one of their "Next Big Thing" conference calls to talk about the Fearless Defenders. The Outhouse, industry pariahs, were not invited. However, Marvel's marketing department, ComicBookResources, recapped the call, which featured an appearance by genetircally engineered super-writer Cullen Bunn and artist Will Sliney.

During the call, Bunn revealed that Hippolyta would be joining the book. Hippolyta is a character from Greek myth, the Marvel version of whom most recently appeared in a Hercules or Hercules-related storyline around the time of Dark Reign, where she was dead, a transient state in the Marvel Universe.

In Fearless Defenders, Hippolyta will be back as Warrior Woman, and bears a striking resemblance to a certain Amazonian warrior princess from the distinguished competition. Asked for comment on whether Marvel was purposely trying to rile up DC, Bunn, a man of many talents, responded with a battle rap:

My name's Cullen Bunn I got a pen that cuts!

Sucka ass writers can lick deez nuts!

Yo, DC, ya beefin' with Hippolyta?

Then ya fuckin' with Bunn, call yo healthcare provida!

Word!

 

Or at least we assume that's what he said. As we stated earlier, Marvel didn't invite us to the call. Jerks.

Fearless Defenders #1 hits stores in February. Check out the pictures of Wond... we mean Warrior Woman below.

Radical. And I say that as a word from the same era as that design.

This may finally top Silver Sorceress for having the dumbest helmet/headdress ever.

That rap is awful, but I'll give you credit for even trying to rhyme 'Hippolyta.'

Wow, what a disappointment and that's an understatement. Forget about Bunn bringing his Sixth Gun level game, he has to exceed it for this character NOT to be a waste of time and space.

If you think you have a better flow than Cullen Bunn let's hear it.

Hippolyta is an Amazonian queen. DC didn't make that up. Actually, I think Marvel should introduce Amazons into their universe. It could be an interesting alternative to DC's. Could be interesting. Probably won't be.
