Thoughts on Wonder Woman

I'm really looking forward to Straczynski on Wonder Woman. I rather enjoyed his Thor (barring my issues with his Tony Stark portrayal) and I absolutely LOVED Babylon 5 (except the last season).

I think he has a very good grasp of mythic, which doesn't necessarily work with say Spider-Man, but should work very well with Wonder Woman. And he's always done a very good job of showing the varied types of strength in female characters. In Delenn and Ivanova, he was able to highlight the ambassador and the warrior, so it'll be interesting if he can pull them together in Diana.

Actually, the Londo fan in me REALLY wants to see him do the Greek gods. That should be fascinating.

    Not too familiar with his wrk, but looking forward to the new run of Wonder Woman nonetheless.

    Enh. His recent DC work has been pretty dire. And lets not get into the Twelve. Still, I've got a good deal of fondness for his early comics stuff like Rising Stars (ignoring some dreadful delays) and Midnight Nation...

    Amusingly, I'm watching Season 5 of Babylon 5 as I write this. It holds up better the second time around.

    I haven't always been thrilled with JMS's comic book work, but I do seem to be one of a small handful who liked his work on Spidey (though I've only read the earliest stuff). I thought the Spider-totem idea made , especially since Joe pointed out how many of Spidey's adversaries were ALSO totems.

    I can't wait to see what he'll do with Diana.

    His work on "The Brave and the Bold" was awful enough to guarantee that I won't be wasting money on his run on "Wonder Woman." It's depressing that they kicked Simone off the book in favor of that hack. :/
