    I think he means the video game God of War.

    Yes, God Of War the video game; if you're into this stuff at all, it really is excellent.

    I don't really have a problem with the overall direction and tone of the series. It's is as good as it's been in years. Is it a wasted opportunity to appeal to a different demographic? Maybe and maybe not. Considering the kind of violent, bloody content that female teens enjoy such as The Hunger Games and the like, there might be something to the current approach. I wish there were more traditional elements that point to Marston's subtly sexualized vision to go with the darker undercurrents, but most of the changes are okay by me.

    What an amazingly thoughtful and insightful rebuttal to the shallowness of reactions like this:

    She Has No Head! – Is the Destruction of The Amazons The Destruction of Feminism in DC Comics? | Comics Should Be Good! @ Comic Book Resources

    and this:

    (Unless of course you're joking, in which case, "LOL?")

    Wonder Woman is a character that's meant to appeal to a broad audience, and particularly to young female readers who might be turned off by Batman or some of the other darker characters. She's supposed to be a role model with a family friendly brand. You shouldn't recast her origin to make adultery a plot point. I know it's supposed to be a clever twist, but my main takeaway is that DC doesn't want parents buying Wonder Woman comics for their daughters, which I think is a shame.

    I think the 52 reboot was a ballsy thing to do, but ultimately Didio and Co. decided to double-down on middle aged white men as their target audience and that's going to kill the medium in the long run.
    That first line is a concept I have no understanding of at all. The second line ... Yeah, you're going to have to support that in order for it to have any meaning. Seems to me that Wonder Woman is a character who is meant to appeal to whomever the writers are writing for. What inside information do you have?

    He's saying that he likes it a lot ... but he's not sure that it should exist ... it's pretty straightforward, I think.

    He likes this direction, but he feels that the character is born to be something to appeal to those other than the core audience.

    Myself, I think that this book is determinably off the normal DC core audience.

    Er, yes, but it's still the same version of the character, even if she's appearing in another book.

    That first article is great, and she is very clear that this is just her reading of the situation and that it's not necessarily the complete reading of the situation.

    I for one (especially after 100 bullets) know to trust BA's direction and plotting.
    There will be an endgame.

    Going to read that blogspot now ...

    Thanks 3M. LOL I actually understood the English-to-English translation, just not the ideas behind the translation.
