I could see in the Aresia thread that people here had a lot of thoughts about the general depiction of all things Wonder Woman-related in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. So, let's discuss them all here!
Things I loved
-I loved when a particular group of animators drew Diana. Episodes like "Maid of Honor Part One", "Eclipsed Part One", "Starcrossed Part Two" and "This Little Piggy" had her looking terrific. Examples:
-I really liked the friendship that gradually developed between Diana and J'onn over the course of the series. They could have done more to play it up, but then the GL/Flash friendship was almost overplayed, so perhaps keeping it to a minimum was more effective.
-Susan Eisenberg. At first, I didn't care for her much, but she really grew into the part and became a terrific Diana.
Things I didn't love
-Her attitude. This wasn't an especially patient woman, or someone you'd quickly turn to with a problem. I get that they were going with the "Warrior Princess from a different society" angle, but far too often she was snapping at people verbally or punching through crowds.
-The history. They could have easily adapted the Perez origin, especially given that they spent about four and a half episodes in season one explaining how her society works (kinda). Instead, they turned Ares into Hades + Heracles, and then danced around the idea of making him her father. They suggested the Amazons enhance themselves using magic (hun?) and are so strict about keeping men away that they'd banish their own Princess for getting some male help in order to save their freaking lives! And of course the first, and probably biggest change - Diana stealing her costume, and never knowing her lasso could compel someone to tell the truth. Why?? Ugh.
-Her romance with Batman. I won't deny Susan had chemistry with Kevin Conroy (who voices Batman), but I felt it diminished her as a character to be attracted to the "bad boy" of the team...especially in light of the fact that her mother's last lover was a brutal monster like Hades. Obviously, Bruce isn't that bad a boy, but still. What happened to listening to your mother, Di? She'd be just another notch on his utility belt, and that bugged me. Like in order to find a way to make her likeable, they had to pair her up with the fan-favourite, Batman.
What did you love or hate? What are you still confused about? Did you ultimately feel like the portrayal was a positive one? Discuss!
