Peng Deilan is the current Alternate Version of Wonder Woman and member of Justice League of China:    


Latest issue of her shared title (on topic here):


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

Pros and cons of having her in the DCU?

While Daveym makes some very fair, and good, points I feel that all these Chinese versions of the Justice League are just poor rip offs of the current characters. Not only have the current ones been around longer, but do we really need another version of Wonder Woman flying around? We already have Wonder Girl and Donna. And that's not even taking into account the numerous "Bat" characters as well or the other Chinese characters based on better known ones. Again, Daveym makes some good points. But it cannot be overlooked that all DC is doing is recycling ideas. In turn, this makes all these Chinese versions nothing more than unoriginal characters better left off in the minds that imagined them rather than taking up space in a comic. \(no\)

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. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
