    Doesn't sound boring at all.

    And I totally disagree...Superman and Wonder Woman have similar powers (and to what extent we still don't know for sure) but they are VASTLY different characters.
    Honestly, they are not. Or if they are, one or both are not being written properly.

    Superman and Batman are different. Wonder Woman and Batman are different. Superman and Wonder Woman, not so much.

    Similar powersets. Mera and Arthur are not so wildly different in personalities and Batman and Catwoman are street level...and dark.
    The thing with Batman Catwoman is that first they have VASTLY different personalities. I mean...

    VASTLY.


    Seriously, you could fit a pocket universe in the space between them. One is a hypersexual free spirited lawbreaker with a penchant for chaos and the other is an ultra-anal emotionally repressed criminal-hunting control-freak.

    Its like saying Irene Adler and Holmes in the BBC show Sherlock are similar because they are both clever, well dressed and British. Once you get past the surface they are entirely different animals.

    I guess I'd rather read someone argue that they're boring because have too much in common than someone argue that they have nothing in common at all. I still don't understand that rationale, but whatever.

    I can agree that Batman would be the odd-man out in a comparison between the three. Superman and Wonder Woman may be more like each other than with Batman, but they are still "VASTLY" different.

    Wonder Woman will chop your head off if she deems it necessary. Or, break your neck bare-haded. Pick your poison.

    Brett was probably referring to their personas/views.
    That's why they're all diferent in your list, except Diana is not hot tempered (or should not be). She is more impulsive now, but that's it.
    But yeah, they're different. Which bugs me when overall public think she is very much like him.

    It's true no two characters are exactly the same, but some are a lot more similar than others.
