I take I09 with a grain of salt for the most part but like a broken clock can be right twice a day, sometimes they get it right, as in their examination of why Captain America has a movie and Wonder Woman does not. Of course they dismiss the most obvious and actual reason (gender) because honestly, then they'd have nothing to talk about or have to talk about sexism, so they
but branch off in an interesting comparison between the two as products of their times and inherently tied to them, but while this works to Cap's favor it holds Wonder Woman back because her basic reason for leaving the island was to fight Nazis. Not world peace, but to kick Nazi ass. Take that out and you're left floundering trying to give her purpose creating embassies and all sorts of things that aren't that interesting. I'm sorry, but even if she were a man, no one wants to read about the adventures of an ambassador of peace. Superman fights for truth, justice and the American way. Batman fights crime. Wonder Woman fights...for peace, which is contradictory. They also suggest that maybe what she needs is to be more like Cap and just accept the permanent tie to WWII and also be fighting for the dream of what America could be. While I love Cap to death, I'm not entirely comfortable with making Diana back into a nationalist hero. On the other hand, she surely needs something. Something other than David E. Kelly.
