I like how all of these 11-17 year olds are just going to school with vampires and werewolves and giant spiders and vicious three-headed dogs in their backyard, yet they need a permission slip with an iron-clad parent/guardian signature to go have a harmless butterbeer at the nearby wizarding village.
Husband and wife team Meredith and David Finch have not yet taken over DC’s Wonder Woman title, but already they’ve made headlines for an awkward interview. At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, TMS Editor-in-Chief Jill Pantozzi gave them the opportunity to elaborate on what they meant, and on what changes we can expect to see when they take over for Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chang in November.
The Mary Sue: Should we get the hard one out of the way first? Is Wonder Woman a feminist?
David Finch: Wonder Woman is a feminist icon and it’s an incredibly important aspect to her character. I absolutely regret the way that my words came out and it doesn’t reflect at all how I feel.
This comment pretty much sums up how I felt after reading this
News flash to Meredith, there’s still a lot of women fighting for the rights that they were fighting for in the 70s because we still don’t have economic and social equality (especially WoC, but I guess she doesn’t realize intersectional feminism is a thing). And honestly it shouldn’t matter that Meredith, an (assumedly) middle to upper class white woman, has never felt disadvantaged. She’s somehow making this about her experiences, but Wonder Woman is supposed to be about Wonder Woman and how she’s very much pro-women and a protector and symbol of hope for all women, not just privileged ones. God I just
@kmonteci11o can you please look at this
frenchingtoast That is SO sad..they chose writers who don’t truly understand who Wonder Woman is or what she represents. Looks like they either didn’t research well on her or decided to ignore the most important parts of it.. Seriously, just can’t deal with DC anymore.
I for one love the new Bee and Puppycat design, I mean its a rough cut and Nat and her crew like it. You guys need to give it a chance.
Seriously, people are already throwing hissy fits over a 50-sec preview that’s just at a rough draft stage. And a bulk of the complaints are on Bee’s new fab figure. #sorrynotsorry #animationindustryneedsmorecurvaceousheroines
