Archive for the ‘Wonder Woman Wednesday’ Category

Wonder Woman’s got a lot on her mind, so I can see how she might forget her lasso of truth, or forgot where she parked her invisible jet…but the costume?  That’s a bit of a stretch, don’t you think?  I’m not sure who the artist is, but he/she did a fine job at making us laugh. Thanks!

This Had To Have Been On A Monday

Sure, we all know her history with bondage, but I personally thought she’d moved past that.  Apparently not.  Oh James Marston, what psychological damage have you done to Wondy?

If you REALLY look at what he’s saying, you’ll realize that his vocabulary isn’t that low…but you have to wonder if he even knows what he’s saying…

Points to anyone who knows what issue of Wonder Woman this comes from!  I know simply out of luck, but it would be interesting to see if any remembers where it’s from without going back and looking through EVERY issue.  Here’s a hint…Gail Simone wrote it.

And don’t forget, Wonder Woman #4 comes out today!  Sadly I will be waiting for it to arrive by mail…which means it will probably arrive two weeks later AND be badly damaged.  UGH!  However, some exciting stuff is on the horizon for Diana as she’s left Paradise island.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Nothing special today….except for this AWESOME war-like Wonder Woman drawing!  I was lucky enough to find this over at Kris Anka’s blogspot.  He does some really great work!

Ok, to start off, It’s Wednesday, and my favorite program will be on tonight, 7:00 sharp!  If you you have time, go to Where Monsters Dwell and enjoy the geekdom and nerdiness!  And secondly, it’s new comic day!  And while I have a few comics that will come to me in the mail, I have three titles to pick up at my local comic shop…Catwoman #2, Green Lantern Corps#2, and the over delayed second issue of Justice League.  It’s a good day for new comics.

In the meantime, enjoy a few photos from classic Wonder Woman and her days of bondage.  Any of you want to take a guess at what the heck was going through William Moulton Marston’s head?

Er....um....uh....what?!?!?

That's right guys, don't throw off a woman's vanity...it will screw up their entire day...LOL

Tie 'em up Wondy! Bondage it is!!!

Just like most Wednesdays, trying to create a new topic for today’s Wonder Woman Wednesday was tough.  We can talk about how strong she is, how incredible of a role model she is for young women, and how she mirrors both the good and bad traits of Superman and Batman, but it’s all been said before.

Wonder Woman’s sexuality is something I try to stay away from because, while she’s still the hottest superhero in comic book history, she’s much more than that too.

Cracked.com, however, has taken a different approach to the Woman of Wonder with an article about how she sucks and was victim of men not really knowing how to give her powers deserving of her personality.  While I don’t agree with most of the article, nor can I figure out if the writer is being serious or humorous, it’s entertaining to read none the less.  So please click on the link in this paragraph and enjoy!

Oh, and enjoy these photos i found on the internet…

Fan Made Movie Poster

Over a decade ago, Marvel Comic’s Studios brought us a film that would define a cinematic genre…X-Men.  This film marked a new era in Superhero films, calling out to studios, challenging them to make Superhero films just as good as any other action drama hitting theaters…and it seems to be working!

It’s interesting to see these single films give birth to there own franchises; Spider-Man, Batman, The Avengers, Iron Man, Superman, the list goes on.  But here’s the interesting thing; Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman are the top three superheroes that non-comic book fans can name off of the top of heir head.  It’s even arguable that Spider-Man is less popular than Wonder Woman.  The big three in DC’s arsenal are almost household names and it’s very difficult for anyone to grow up without knowing who these three superheroes are.

So here’s my question…Why hasn’t Wonder Woman gotten her own film franchise??

As the years have past, wonder Woman has grown from being a figment of one man’s sexual fantasy to being one of the most iconic and powerful womanly figures that BOTH men and women can enjoy from a literary standpoint.  And while most of the male superheroes have survived off of their masculinity, (come, Thor, ya got nothin’) Wonder Woman’s character is what has kept her treking on through the years.

Wonder Woman, Through The Years...Minus The Pants Version

As I was working on this edition of “Wonder Woman Wednesday” I saw on Facebook, a post made by one of the Girls Gone Geek, Erika D. Peterman.  It’s an article asking movie studios why they haven’t taken this opportunity to create a Wonder Woman film that represents the quality that has been implemented into the superhero films within the last decade.  The article can be found here, Where is my “Wonder Woman” Movie.

Erika lists many good reasons why this film has the potential of being great, as well as listing all the reasons why it’s idiotic that a film hasn’t been made.  Wonder Woman’s last big success that got popular recognition was the Lynda Carter TV serial that remains, to this day, a campy classic.  Even the recent animated Wonder Woman, direct to DVD movie, as fantastic as it was, did not receive the popular recognition.

Wonder Woman Animated Movie...Still In Stores!!!

Personally, I’ve been anxiously waiting for a Wonder Woman film for the last five years.  Ever since Gail Simone started writing for Wonder Woman, my love for the character has become greater than my love for the Bat and Supes.  She is a combination of the two, representing the justice that Superman wishes to instill in life, but also maintaining that dark and gothic persona held within the Dark Knight’s soul.

Amongst these two qualities is the womanly and motherly instincts that Wonder Woman adopted as a child to help balance her other two characteristics.  She is one of the most compelling characters within the DC Universe and I still wish to see DC take on the Wonder Woman franchise.  Everyone’s waiting for it…why not give them what they want right?
