Morrison loves super heroes unironically. This should be evident from All Star Superman and his Batman work.
Yeah, he's post-ironic.
I'm intrigued but this might not be a an instant buy.
I wonder is there will be an uproar with the amount of "sex" he plans to insert (pun unintended) in the title and character.
From wot I gather of the interview...I would like to see if those adults who are complaining that Azzarello's WW is no longer for kids/little girls would be "Here, sweetie, read this...here is a wonder woman you can emulate".
I'll certainly give it a shot, depending on that artist. Morrison writing is neither here nor there with me so the artist has to be phenomenal.

...you couldn't have stopped me if you tried.
Storm deserves her very own solo ongoing...now!!! Written by BCW and illustrated by Phil Jimenez.
Oh man I cannot wait to read about Wonder Woman having sex. Its been long over due. I just hope its not Steve Trevor or Hal Jordan.“Superman when he began was, he could throw people out of windows. You used to see him drop-kicking guys into the ocean, and obviously that would kill you,” he said. “You know Batman had a gun and sometimes he would shoot people. But those things weren’t intrinsic to the strips, you know, you could take out those elements, you could take out the murder element of Superman and Batman and the strips still worked. But when you took the sex out of Wonder Woman, the thing went flat. And the sales died immediately after Marston himself died and never ever recovered.”
Morrison, who revealed in 2009 that he’d like to tackle Wonder Woman after his Batman mega-arc — September’s Action Comics relaunch may have gotten in the way — said he’s immersed himself in feminist theory, and incorporated some of those ideas into the project, “but completely took them in a different direction.”
“Wonder Woman needs sex definitely because, you know, again as I said in the book [Supergods], they kind of transformed her into a cross between the Virgin Mary and Mary Tyler Moore,” he said. “This Girl Scout who had no sexuality at all and the character’s never quite worked since then. In the way that Superman’s supposed to stand for men but at least he’s allowed to have some kind of element of sexuality, Wonder Woman is expected to stand for women without any element of sexuality, and that seems wrong.

I'm a bumblebee. I'm a bee and I need to get back to the hive.
Then second half is my problem, it seemed...very money oriented, as he looks at this business more in money/corporate way than an actual creator, maybe I misinterpreted but that's how it came off. Also, the certain times people are more punk orientated or hippy orientated and when those days hit, he writes books like that so they can appeal to readers. Interesting but a bit to loopy for me but then again this is Morrison we're talking about.
Overall, enjoyed the book but read the first half and then for the second half just watch his documentary.
