> Gail Simone the popular writer who revitalized BIRDS OF PREY and wrote, IMO, a very lackluster arc in JLA CLASSIFIED #16-21 ("The Hypothetical Woman") will be taking over the scripting chores on WONDER WOMAN beginning with issue #13.
GS: This is a great question. First, I hate the supposed ‘dichotomy,’ that she preaches peace while fighting. This is not contradictory at all. It’s not ‘a’ or ‘b,’ it’s ‘a’ AND ‘b.’ It’s like saying a cop is a hypocrite when they say they want to keep the peace, just because they might have to wrestle a perp to the ground on occasion. Diana’s both. She loves the light, but she’s right at home in the dark, too. She can do dark.
FINALLY! Someone at DC gets that. I've been trying to explain that to people about Peacemaker for years (most recently to Toonopedia), that just because he's willing to fight for peace it does not make him nuts.
