Look at it impartially and "Daughter of Zeus" sounds rather grand and is an obvious way in which to sell the character to the masses. It also operates as a springboard for storylines and placing Wonder Woman within the complex family hierarchy and backstory of the Gods. And I can appreciate all of these reasons. But... all things considered it isn't really good for the character, certainly not in the longterm.

Wonder Woman has suffered a great deal since the early 1990's as successive regimes moved her further away from the everyday world Diana Prince lived in, and latterly Diana's life with the everyday Kapatelis family, and went off into the distant alien realms of Amazon/olympian mythology and therefore further away from ordinary everday people and situations. It didn't do the character any favours as she became aloof and altogether superior to the everyday folks, barely human, to the point she became willing to kill and showed no regrets or due reflection at doing so.
And here we are. Reconfirmed as a Goddess rather than an Amazon, another storyline concerning Gods and mythology, and this time she has a sword.

In its favor though the new regime has at least Steve Trevor to act as moral compass and earthly tether to both Amazon goddess and reader alike...

So Diana is a full blown goddess now once again?
