I realize you're trying to be provocative here, but that's just a completely silly and unrealistic approach to take to rebuilding characters.
The specifics of a character's situation can change, but the core of who they are should be maintained and strengthened. All the best rebuildings of mythologies, characters and franchises have worked this way.

"Till shade is gone, till water is gone, into the Shadow with teeth bared, screaming defiance with the last breath, to spit in Sightblinder's eye on the Last Day."
I'm actually really loving this redesign for Orion. At first glance it just kind of looks like he's wearing a red motorcycle jacket but the more you look at it the more otherworldly it seems. I also really like the helmet and the way it flips up. Both together make him look like a futuristic space knight, but in a more subtle way than you would assume when hearing that phrase (if that makes sense).
not a fan of the second helmet design either. the fact that it comes over the nose makes it look far too Batman-like.
Once again Chiang knocks it out of the park. The silver accents would be nicer.
I really wish DC would have let them keep their original design for Diana. The outfit we saw before she stormed Hades.
It's also interesting to hear that there are more DC writers going for the old school Marvel relationship with their artists. Scott and Greg are doing the same thing on Batman.
In war the elders may give the orders, but it's the young who have to fight.
I've seen #14, and there's not only a scene with Orion, but a glimpse of Highfather as well. Too early to say what Azz has planned, but it looks like he's playing up the "gods of science" aspect a bit more than I expected... the Source is described as "the sum of all universal knowledge", and rather than a stone wall, it apparently communicates via these transparent monitors that are sort of Matrixy, sort of like oscilloscopes.
(It's not as cliched as it sounds. Chiang plays some interesting games with how they interact with the characters)
No cause for nerdrage, anyway.

Man, mdg, put some spoiler tags, willya? I clicked this thread earlier before reading #14 and saw your post, thankfully I stopped reading when I reached spoilers:

Jean Grey : What makes you such a bitch, Emma?
Emma Frost : Breeding, darling. Top class breeding.
Oh well, at least the final design isn't bad. It's just not as good. Eh, time to just accept that it is what it is, and enjoy the comic. It'll be my first Wonder Woman comic I've ever read, and I'm mainly getting it because Orion is in it. It may end up a staple on my pull list. Time will tell.
I seriously miss Captain Mar-Vell.
I honestly have no idea what you mean by "problem" at this point.
