Heck, I have far far more problems with the loss of her invisible jet than what's occurred to the Amazons. Now that's something that has existed since creation and it was tossed aside (and we still haven't seen it in this run). No matter how anyone may feel about the Amazons currently, they aren't static. They still exist and thus can take different paths. They, as characters, should be used in whatever way that increases the value of story of Diana herself. She is the focus and should be. When people start to feel this one element is so important then yes, her status as a hero looks a little lessen to me if you can't strip them away from her in any way. Perhaps this is why there's this dislike of the getting rid of them over the years to the point I think people are reacting to them as if I would expect them to if they changed Diana's sex. And not saying its all elements detractors agree on just this one. It just struck me if someone dislikes the current run, the Amazons were the one single thing all agreed upon.
