    Can you imagine the nerdrage that would blow up all over the net if this sort of mentality was brought back to the character? The perfect goddess virgin, playing bondage S&M games, and with other women no less?

    Yeah--it'll be interesting to see how close Morrison gets to some of these themes, and how he'll make them his own, when his "Earth 1" (or whatever) Wonder Woman book finally comes out.

    Until I get more than vague references during interviews for other characters, Im not going to fully believe his E-1 is ever going to actually happen.

    But yeah, I've wondered the same. With the amount of research he says he's done, it might be closer to the source material than people are used to. And I suspect many may be uncomfortable with it.

    Generally, Im a Morrison fan. But this is an awfully thin line to walk, between porn and....whatever the hell it is Marston was doing.

    I think the operative term would actually be nerdgasm. My only caveat would be supporting cast members enjoying the same games! Maybe I could get more into Zola if she forced Hera to dress up as a baby and paddled Strife when that big ol' drag queen got an attitude with her or Wonder Woman! I think longtime fans would actually find a new fondness/respect for the Azz if he actually borrowed Marston's themes!

    Far less trashy than the sordid sea-rapes-and-murders!
