> > I'm sure they had nothing to do with him getting her into the hold. They just starting stinging her once he did it (and she seems to barely feel that).
> Oh, you're sure of that? Because that happened ON PANEL, right? Conjecture, man.

What happened on panel? Her not feeling a sting of an ant that was firing at a distance?

Yes, correct.

> > As I recall, you never saw her break free and you eventually saw Hercules free from her hold. When I get home I will view the details.
> I have the issue here. In one scene she is in the hold in the next she is out...

She couldnt be in that hold, when Hercules is paying attention to something else.

You can only refer to her breaking free of the hold, with a scene in hand, and the creative team didnt do it. Why?

> > What's brilliant is your inability to acknowledge that, in response to her question, he began reminiscing over his exploits with Hypolyta when she punched him in mid-sentense. Am I right or wrong?
> No you aren't wrong but you are distorting facts. He asked for the fight -- she engaged him -- and punched him. That isn't a sucker punch. He was at the ready...

Ah, but Hercules cutting Arkon in mid sentence was a cheap shot, huh?

Double standart.

> > When says "pummel", one generally refers to being beaten repeatedly without being able to respond. Characters routinely fly through objects when punched in comics.
> And I'm sure the intent of Busiek and Perez (who both ADORE Wonder Woman) wasn't to show how powerful she is. *sigh*

Of course. The same way im sure the intention in the second round was to show how Hercules was also powerful. And how thor could humble and get humbled by Superman, or how Batman and Cap are equals, or how both Flash and Quicksilver can win in either Earth.

If the cockstroking of the team on WW was as big as you claim, they would show her breaking the hold.

Instead she got terminated by ants.
