So now that the dust has settled, in retrospect, I think we can all agree that not only was Wonder Woman Earth One boring as all frick, but also a completely laughable shit-show that doesn't stack up anywhere near the greats such as Greg Rucka's run, or Steve Perez's, or even Gail Simone.

      Who, you moron? You mean George? But yea. Turning Wonder Woman into a BBC-addicted Female Chauvinist Pig, while turning Hercules into a rapist and Wonder Woman the off-spring of Hippolyta being his concubine who she murders is mind-bendingly stupid. And I guarantee you there will be some grease-stained fatty who tries to defend that shit.

      You should at least look at. the art is fantastic. The story is bonkers because it's one male (or had Morrison come out as non binary at that point?) sex pest critiquing another sex pest from the 1940's on his idea on feminism.

        I don't understand why Dr. Psycho is Nick Cave in this. Did he piss of Grant Morrison somehow? Was it a homage to using Sting as John Constantine?

          I think he was trying to go with someone charismatic and handsome in an unconventional way, like Nick Cave. I doubt he pissed Morrison off, especially since—for some reason—Dr. Psycho is portrayed much more sympathetically here than in the mainstream DCU. I don’t…hate the idea of Dr. Psycho being good-looking and a villain who has sexual tension with Diana—like with Batman and Catwoman when she was more of an antagonist—but like other things in the story it just didn’t work. Part of me wonders if some of the ideas fell flat since the book was in development from much longer ago—it was originally going to be All-Star Wonder Woman—and because of that the ideas felt even more dated.

    I liked the concept of retvrning to the Marston S&M roots, but the story was meh (I only read the firs two books).
    Morrison's post post New 52 stories with the exception of The Multiversity and Action Comics all either petered out after a good beginning or were meh from start to end. His heart wasn't in it.
    That's fine though, can't pump out gold forever. At least he moved on when the juice ran out. And boy did it run out. His Batman ended with a fart, Green Lantern ended in utter schizophrenia, and his WW was just a miss.
    But, Multiversity and to a lesser extent AC (and his Dark Knights tie-in issue) were great, so not to bad of an exit all told.
    I also never read his Authority Supes story but I heard it was meh.
    Did I miss any of his post 2011 DC work?

      I loved his run on Multiversity and Action Comics, but never read his GL, even though I heard Season One was good. Hearing about Season Two being disliked by the people that liked the first part makes me cautious but I’ll probably check it out eventually.

      All that being said, I think Multiversity was probably the last great thing I read by Morrison. I hope he comes back to that some time as it could be expanded on in many ways.

    The first issues was fine. The second went a bit topical but whatever, it's Wonder Woman. The third completely dropped the ball by refusing to pick up what they set up and instead totally vindicating Amazonian society despite going out of it's way to point out it's flaws.

    This page isn't from it of course, I'm just amused Tom King was allowed to insert his dommy mommy fetish into anything this blatantly.

    I have to agree. I loved the art and the Amazons using advanced technology again, but the book felt more like a satire of Marston and his ideas, and kind of a mean-spirited one. Whether that was the intent or not doesn’t matter to me, it’s how it came off. I’m not the first person to say any of this but it bears repeating.

    On paper this was a good idea: Morrison being someone who can take weird or puzzling ideas from the past and present them in a cool and interesting way, but it didn’t work this time. I don’t know why he was able to do it with Superman and Batman but not Wonder Woman.

      He didn't do it with Batman either. His Batman run explicitly retconned a huge chunk of Batman's Silver Age adventures into being hallucinations which struck me as an exceptional amount of laziness and NOT MUH. For all the hype he gets it's quite clear Morrison's passion lies squarely in the Bronze Age incarnations of the characters (and not at all in WW's case).

            That's a rather negative way to look at it. If you swapped out Morrison's run for another writer that era most likely wouldn't have been referenced at all, let alone referenced to the point where DC put out a tie in TPB that collected a bunch of the old stories Grant was referencing.

        You are making shit up fricker.

        Pretty much the entire 50s era Batman had been erased save for a few key canon villain appearances after Crisis on Infinite Earths; to the point that Batwoman was turned into Kathy Kane circus owner and former BFF of Bruce Wayne and her Batgirl being turned into Flamebird.

        Morrison actually brought the 50s Batman BACK INTO CANON, complete with restoring Kathy as Batwoman (and retconning her death) and making the craziest 50s stories hallucinations/dreams due to the fact that that was the only way the notorious Batman editorial would even let Grant restore them to canon.

          What that other guy also forgot is that he never confirms that they were all hallucinations/dreams. There's a panel in Last Rites showing the Bat-Radia--the actual one from the original Zur-En-Arrh comic--in storage. It's left open for people to decide if it happened or not

        I love Bronze Age DC so even if that’s the case it makes me like Morrison more. But, as you said, we didn’t get any of that in this series, it was just a satire that maybe had some outside hands interfering with the story. I actually WOULD like to see a take on the Golden Age Wonder Woman that’s also modern, sexy, and fetishy, but this wasn’t that.

      That’s true. I also wonder if there was more editorial interference than we know, especially in the case of Earth One Wonder Woman. I suspect everyone involved would deny this if asked, but reading it you get the impression there was a major change halfway through.
