    Default The Wonder Embargo; Doing more harm then good

    Everyone knows that for some reason Wonder Woman and related charaters can't show up in animated or live action series (70's Wonder Woman Live Action series, Superfriends and JLU being the exception), apparently she has to be The star or atleast get as much attention as Supes and Bats.

    Now I personaly think this is doing more harm then good.
    I mean look at B:B&B, How awesome would it not have been if Donna was in "sidekicks assemble", how Awesome would it be if Bats and Wondy teamed up for a episode.
    How aersome would it be if Cassie would be in the rumord "Young Justice" series.

    Think about all the GOOD pr the Wondy family is missing.

    Totally agree. It's very frustrating for me.

    Default Details

    Does anyone know the actual details on this? I've been reading about it for years, but it's always vague. Is it the number of panels or words? Is it about the title or the regularity of appearance? What are parameters for the use of Wonder Woman and Wonder Girl? Why could Wonder Woman appear in the Ruby Spears SUPERMAN, but not in BRAVE AND THE BOLD?

    I agree that limiting Wonder Woman's appearances are not serving the character right now. I'm assuming Lois in the Wonder Woman outfit was the best SMALLVILLE could do for copyright reasons, and no one's first choice.

    Why is that insulting? I think I just don't read enough Wonder Woman and Superman to understand.

    I have zero issue with Lois in the WW outfit.

    But this whole embargo is frustrating. A YJ series just seems wrong without poor Cassie.

    Of course its doing harm.

    The big thing is... I doubt DC is trying all that hard to resolve this. Money solves everything, and I bet they just don't want to spend.

    Default How about the other way around

    Harm. Frustratingly harmful to Wonder Woman group.

    But on the same case, can non Wonder Woman characters guest in her title. I mean I think it would be better if Wonder Woman is seen interacting with other heroes in her book, it shows how much she is part of the shared universe.

    That and not have those guest jobbing for her or some villain.

    Preferably Hal Jordan
    One doesn't need the validation of others to justify what they like.

    They're talking about television and such. I'm pretty sure she and her family members can guest in other books.
