I'm noticing this a lot lately. Not just with Wonder Woman, but with a lot of other titles. Writers, and artists, are having shorter and shorter runs on various books. A year or two and they are gone. And I'm left wondering, like you, why? It especially hurts when a particular good writer, or artist, only stays for a short time before moving on (and usually replaced by someone a little/lot worse than them).
It's a puzzling situation to be sure. Maybe the writer/artist in question gets hired to do something better than what they are doing. Maybe they don't like working with certain characters so they stick it out for a year or two and accept the first job that comes their way so they can work on something they like doing.
I wish I had a more definitive answer, but I don't. There are just so many variables to consider as to why a writer/artist leaves a book with only a short run under his belt.
It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong.
