The Brave and the Bold: Batman and Wonder Woman #1

So. Diana and Steve are friends with benefits. As dubious as this status-quo friendly is (pun intended), their opening pre-marital scene and adult playfulness was the most engaging part (pun intended) of the the book. However, it did seem uncharacteristically selfish (or is it selfishly uncharacteristic?) that she would put "peace on earth/good will toward man) on hold for an extra hour of snu snu. The only other compelling part of the book was the fantastic art of the unpronouncable faerie world. Other than that, it was a droning setup to get Diana as a peacemaker arbitrator for a dimension from Celtic Folklore. And the other half of the story has Batman getting terrified in the Irish Quarter presents him as a raTher rank amateur as he walks right into an underwhelming magical trap. They don't even team up or meet as the misleading solicit promises. Just might have to pass on this.

What did you think of it?

Was this the best or worst among the last 3 books suggested for discussion? Or 3rd?
1st? Wonder Woman/Conan #6
2nd? Wonder Woman #40
3rd? The Brave and the Bold: Batman and Wonder Woman #1
4th? Shade the Changing Girl & Wonder Woman Special #1

> Don’t miss the start of a new, six-issue miniseries written and illustrated by Liam Sharp (WONDER WOMAN)! When a Celtic god’s murder leads to a war between the fairy folk and a possible breach between worlds, Wonder Woman must find the murderer and keep the peace while Batman investigates strange occurrences in Gotham City. As Diana must turn to the World’s Greatest Detective for help, the two heroes quickly learn their cases may be connected.nk amateur in an unexciting magical trap.

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?
