Wonder Woman might not even be in print if writers like Azzarello keep this new direction
Any faithful follower of Wonder Woman could state all the inconsistencies to her characterization, such as a naïve hero, a powerless spy, an ambassador for peace and a cold-hearted killer. While Wonder Woman has found some stability during her latest reincarnation, Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang’s version is very different from the beloved feminist icon made popular by the 1975 TV series starring Lynda Carter. This new Wonder Woman is a brutish demigod from a race of Amazons that murder and rape men to continue their race of women warriors.I'd written about this myself earlier of course, and if that's the kind of rendition they're going to go by, it may not even survive as comics anymore. "Stability"? Oh, I'll bet. The medium WW began in is probably better for her character in itself, but when horrific characterization like what Azzarello's forced upon the series is allowed to reign...it could one day lead to the downfall of even the comics series.
Also, given Time Warner's recent track record with scripting live action adaptations, that's one more reason why WW might be better off sticking to the comics page. A pity that even there, bad writing's been prevailing today.
