Wonder Woman Wednesday

Wonder Woman Wednesday (95)

By now, we've all seen trailer for Batman V Superman which was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. If you aren't one of the 23 million-plus views that happened over 2 days, consider yourself "spoiler" warned.

This is the week that geeks all over have been waiting for. This is the week that Comic-Con takes over the San Diego Convention Center. Cosplayers will "cos," gamers will "game,"  SDCC Exclusives will "exclude"- yet very few actual comic books will be found at the biggest comic book convention in the country, but that's another story entirely.

Welcome back to another exciting edition of Wonder Woman Wednesday! The 1981 cult classic, Mommie Dearest, starring Faye Dunaway as "not so Mother of the year Joan Crawford," has been on my mind lately, so I thought this week we would explore the extremely complex mother/daughter relationship between Diana and her mother, dead yet again Queen Hippolyta.

Last week here at Wonder Woman Wednesday, we talked about the iconic nature of Wonder Woman's star-spangled panties. Hot on the heels of my blog, the most recent issue of Wonder Woman was released under the watchful eye of the writer/artist, husband/wife team of David and Meredith Finch. Ahem . . . The most recent issue debuted a new costume, because no one demanded it. Diana, a badass Amazon, is now covered from head to toe in a horribly designed, aesthetically unappealing bastardization of the iconic outfit that endeared legions of fans in the 1940s.

Welcome back to another week of Wonder Woman Wednesday. This week, I invite you to show us your underalls as we discuss Diana's star-spangled panties. Really? Indeed.

I recently wrote a blog about the "character assassination" of The Scarlet Witch, putting her in with a group of good characters who seem to get the shaft over and over again for seemingly no good reason.The subject of this week's Wonder Woman Wednesday, Donna Troy, is definitely a member of that club.

With all of the buzz, speculation, and anticipation for the forthcoming Wonder Woman feature film, you can be sure we'll be keeping a watchful eye here at
Wonder Woman Wednesday as news unfolds. I mean, it doesn't even come out 'till 2017, but it's never too early to start buzzing when it comes to Wonder Woman, especially when this is, unbelievably, the first crack the Amazon Princess has had at the big screen.

Welcome back, Wonder Fans, to another exciting edition of Wonder Woman Wednesday! If you thought I was going to run out of things to say about "Wondy," you've got another think coming. I could talk about Wonder Woman's eyelashes for hours. Hmm. Maybe next week.

According to Wikipedia, the term "bombshell" is a forerunner to the term "sex symbol" and was originally used to describe popular female sex icons. In modern usage, "bombshell" refers to a very attractive woman. The Online Etymology Dictionary by Douglas Harper has attested the usage of the term in this meaning since 1942, and in the meaning of "shattering or devastating thing or event" since 1860.

How fitting then that Sensation Comics #1 featuring Wonder Woman made its debut in 1942. I can't think of a bigger "bombshell" than The Princess of Themiscyria, can you? (Not that she's just a bombshell mind you, but it certainly doesn't look bad on one's resume.)

DC Comics is in the midst of a company-wide event called "Convergence" which promises (ad nauseam) to turn DC's continuity on its collective ear and start a new direction for its line of characters. Again.
