Default Re: Wonder Woman Thread Reborn! - - Part 11

I don't know, I just have a hard time taking Ares seriously as a master villain. I know comics have virtually nothing to do with the legends they steal from, but. . . Even if you do have Ares be vastly more powerful for the ever growing scale and scope of warfare? When you strip back the heightened power, you should still find the same thuggish, impulsive bully that he was back in Greek myth. Even if he's terrifying in his intent, he should be horrible in how supremely petty his motives are: a world in which everything that can raise humanity above being selfish bullies is burned to the ground, leaving Ares most important simply because nothing else remains.
