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.

You and me both on this one. I didn't realize for the longest time that the "Comedian" in Watchmen was supposed to be Peacemaker because I didn't get the slur that somehow because Peacemaker had "Peace" in his name he was somehow a hypocrite for using military methods to quell disturbances. The cop analogy is well taken. :-/

Of all the transformations that the Charlton Action Heroes have suffered at DC, the changes made to Peacemaker are the most hurtful. \>\:\-\(
