Marguerite Bennett Rumored to Write Wonder Woman

The rising star looks to take on DC's most famous heroine.

That cheeky lad over at Bleeding Cool is at it again. Now Rich Johnston is reporting that Marguerite Bennett (Insexts, DC Bombshells, Angela: Queen of Hell) is in line to take on the reigns to Wonder Woman. If this is true, then there may be some huge implications regarding the future of the Superman offices.

In September last year, Alex de Campi stated that a senior editor in the Superman Offices (which manages Wonder Woman) is a "sexual harasser with multiple incidents on his HR file."

The main Wonder Woman comic is part of the Superman office. Now, the Superman office allegedly employs no women, and a cursory glance over the mastheads of several Superman titles and Wonder Woman seems to confirm that allegation. The reason, I've been told by several people who work or used to work at DC, is because one of the most senior editors is a sexual harasser with multiple incidents on his HR file. I don't use "alleged" here because at least one incident (grabbing a woman's breasts) happened publicly at a corporate social gathering with multiple witnesses. There was also something about sticking his tongue down an artist's girlfriend's throat when the artist was in the bathroom. Again, public gathering.

It is not known to me whether the no-chicks-in-Supes-office diktat is the preference of the harasser, or whether it's the HR department crossing its fingers and hoping to Jesus they don't get hit with a liability lawsuit so big it's visible from space. This guy was kept in the move to Burbank despite his record – allegedly because he has blackmail on one of DC's most senior staff members.

 

If Johnston is correct and Bennett is indeed writing Wonder Woman, then there are a myriad of scenarios that could be at play. The senior editor of which de Campi speaks could be removed from the Superman offices (either fired or shifted to another office), or Wonder Woman is being moved out of the Superman Offices to another department in DC. Of course it's also possible that a hard "rule" never existed or is being ignored to allow Bennett to write the title. At this time Meredith Finch writes the title, but she works with her husband David which could be a deterrent for the alleged offender.

While we may never know what is happening in the Superman offices, look for an official announcement on Wonder Woman in the coming months.
