Hazel and Mari are each other’s one true love in a time when same-sex attraction is seen as repulsive, and even sinful.

I have a tendency to obsess over Wonder Woman’s costume, because I love the Lynda Carter version and, of course, the George Perez revamp. I think nostalgia plays a lot into it. But then, I saw the movie version, and, of course, I loved it and it looked awesome and more practical. I think it’s interesting that the original costume was created by a male feminist of the time, as it still fell prey to many of the trappings of what a man thinks a woman should be. It gets tricky, though, because some women love their, bras, and heels and make up. Is that wrong? I think a woman should do whatever the hell she wants to do.

Andy Kaufman was for real. He was born in 1949 New York City – a member of the baby boomer generation – and raised on a modern invention: the television. Rather than a passive receptacle of the programming he was watching, he ingested images of Mighty Mouse, Elvis Presley, and wrestling, and he was inspired. A natural showman and impersonator, he liked to entertain. The writing was on the wall for Kaufman: an entertainer in the making.
As the series has gone on, one of the pillars of each The Wicked + The Divine arc is that, as a precursor, we get a look at our beloved gods at a different point in their lives during one of their short, two-year stays in the world of the living.
