Question of the Moment:
Do you like Peng Deilan as the other Wonder Woman?

Pros and cons of having her in the DCU?


I believe it commendable that DC has a strong commitment to trying for eastern representation such as this, but... I would also be lying if I said Justice League China have caught my interest.
To be fair this group hasn't been around very long no, neither has there been a Grant Morrison to bring extra attention to them and that little bit of off-the-wall imagination as he did with the Great 10 some few years ago, but this group needs that extra something, coming after the Great 10 and the likes of Justice League 3000 and others it lacks a strong distinct identity to mark it out from its predecessors...

But as I say, kudos to DC for making the sincere effort to move its superhero representation beyond the American continent. Justice League China is a sound Idea in principle, but when the core audience for it lives in the US and Western hemisphere more than half the battle facing the writer in question is in how to bridge the cultural gap and make this cast of characters and their world compelling and accessible...
