I feel like being taught the ways of Man by Amazons and actually experiencing it would be two very different things. She's from a completely different society that does now see itself as being "above" the world of mankind (for centuries at this point), so the culture shock of that should be a HUGE part of her origin story, imo. But you didn't like it, fair enough.

As I said, it reminds me of the '09 animated movie (with added world-traveling) and I've mentioned before in this thread that I think that movie could make for a great starting-point for a big-screen WW adaptation, so it sounded fine by me.
