On Wonder Woman:
“I think Wonder Woman is the strongest warrior on the planet, and maybe the universe.

She’s not gonna pull punches. And if you want to defeat her, you better not pull yours.” –Gail Simone

Marvel Announces Thor Will Now Be Represented As A Woman

gameraboy:

Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman.  From Time Magazine:

TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?

Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

Okay, but the funny part here (aside from Lilian), is that Cap does this ALL THE TIME in the comics. Like, this exchange. Even in the little bit I read, I saw it two or three times:

Villain: You won’t do the thing, you’re Captain America.

Cap: Nope. *indicates less morally upright companion* They will.

Which kind of suggests that Cap is less about moral uprightness and more about plausible deniability. ;)

He’s still just a paladin in a mixed-alignment party. “I can’t kill that orc, because it’s unarmed, and I’m a paladin of justice. My ranger buddy, however, can totally do that. So go ahead, ranger buddy.”

Superman Adventures #11


“They say you never appreciate anything until you lose it. Well, now it’s my job to make sure we appreciate what we have BEFORE we lose it. And, with luck, we won’t have to lose it at all. Superman told me, when we last spoke, that he has faith in me. Faith in the world to solve its greatest problems. Faith in humanity to build a better future. I don’t know if we’re always worthy of that faith…but if we were ever up to the challenge in the past…today we must meet that challenge as never before. If we can save just this one man, maybe there really is hope for the other five billion. Superman, wherever you are, know this—The people of Earth won’t let you down.” —Lois Lane

I think that [Red Sonja and Wonder Woman] are the alphas of their respective worlds. I mean, I know some will say Conan and Batman/Superman are, but they just are fooling themselves.

Anonymous said: Who would you cast as Wonder Woman in a movie?

superdames:

Well, it’s a moot point since Gal Gadot’s been cast, but I probably don’t know enough about actresses to play this game anyway. To me, the tone and style and theme of a movie are just as if not more important than the cast.

I know that I’m very worried about Wonder Woman being brought to the screen in the current DC “cinematic universe,” which has Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer as its main architects. The Nolan/Goyer Batman films are deeply, subversively conservative in their politics, and Man of Steel was a joyless drudge. This is a Dark Knight who repeatedly fails to actually save anyone and embraces the classic neoconservative “noble lie." This is a Man of Steel who is raised on fear more than hope, who seems uncomfortable with altruism, who kills his opponent and destroys a city without seeming to try very hard not to, and without seeming to dwell much on the consequences.

With movies I always say it’s best to wait and see. But in this case, let’s just say they could cast a Cliff Chiang or a George Pérez drawing come to life and I would still be skeptical.
