    She doesn't just reflect it. She absorbs it, plays around with it, and then throws it back at him.

That was her bracers enabling her to do that. At least, that's how I took it.

    And don't forget, she exhibits other energy wielding powers all her own in that final showdown. She escapes from the tank tracks holding her with a blast of energy from her body. She throws off the entire group of soldiers without touching them. She disintegrates shrapnel in mid air, and channels energy through her bracelets which holds Steppenwolf's lightning at bay.

Since she doesn't have those powers in the comics, I again interpreted that as coming from her bracers. Remember, when she was on that island and had that duel with Antiope? it really looks like the energy came from those bracers and not from Wonder Twig herself.

    Or... We need better films from DC/Warners.

By that time, it may be too late.

    Right. And why just those four? The Suicide Squad are around. So is Deathstroke, and it's implied that others are too. If he was so worried that his five man league wasn't enough, why didn't he recruit the others too? Come to that, if the Atlanteans, Amazons and Green Lantern Corps (Or one of them at least) all pitched in to stop Steppenwolf the first time, why did they all stand around like spare lemons and leave it all up to the humans this time around?

Good points. \^_\^

    The first ever live action team up of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. A Joker/Harley Quinn movie. The first big budget Wonder Woman movie. A Justice League movie. But they can't keep doing that forever.

Nor can they keep killing the main villain of the movie in every DCEU movie that's been made so far either. Pretty soon, we won't have any villains left.

MoS: Zod died
BvS: Fake Doomsday died (Clone of Zod)
Suicide Squad: Enchantress died
Wonder Woman: Ares died
Justice League: Steppenwolf died.

For once I'd like to see a DCEU movie NOT kill the main bad guy in the end.

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?
