I agree and that was a great article. Thanks for that.

Hopefully things like this are a start in correcting these pay imbalances.

Yet when I do an impression of Voight doing his bad Spanish accent, I'M STILL DOING A BETTER ACCENT THEN WHAT HE DID IN THAT MOVIE.

In the cases of both Vioght and Jolie, I couldn't even figure out what accent they were trying to do. It's like they just invented one and went with it. I think Jolie can be a good actress when she wants to be, but she phones it in sometimes too.

I think it was that kind of all purpose "exotic" accent that Bond girls used to use in the 60s, which passed for everything from Japanese to Jamaican.

Terrible though it was, it was slightly less jarring that Colin Farrell's "Oirish" Alexander.

Well... For Alexander wasn't the scuttlebutt that Colin and her were "working" on each other more than their parts? (Or maybe they were working on "each other's" parts, so to speak )

He was a terrible Alexander for many reasons. So disappointed in that movie. It's unfortunate when a movie with such rich and exciting source material goes awry.

Not that Alexander has anything to do with WW's costume, lol.


And yes, krypton, that was the scuttlebutt.

Yeah her accents are always terrible Even in Beowulf she had that same designable inaudible speech pattern. And this is coming from a fan of hers.

I don't think they should use this costume (although I love it in the comics); I just wanted to post this awesome picture from Superman/Wonder Woman #5.



Tony Daniel's WW really reminds me of Gal Gadot as well.

Not fond of the costume, but that is a lovely and peaceful image.

And does really accentuates the belief that it looks like a bathing suit.

*sigh*

You just keep contradicting yourself. You don't want to talk about this anymore, but here you are. "Elite few fallacy?" What does that event mean?

And you don't understand feminism. Feminists don't view anything through "partiarchy googles" because they are opposed the patriarchy. And you may have read about it, but you do not understand it. And you keep telling me you aren't convinced. Guess what? I don't care. Feminism and its theories are based on lived experiences of an oppressed group. If you aren't convinced, it's because you aren't listening to what people from that group tell you. I'm not going to google anything. I live this every day.

And you are an anti-feminist. You just told me you are. You said point blank you don't "buy" feminism. You don't believe in it. And what you call an "equalist" is exactly what feminism is. It's exactly that. So you either don't believe in feminism and are therefore an anti-feminist, or you are a feminist if you truly believe in what you call components of an "equalist." Which is it? I don't think you know. Because you think feminism is something that it isn't.

Yes, feminists have valid points. The point being that women are people and should be treated as such.

And I don't want to hear what these women you may or may not have spoken to say. If they sound anything like you (and I don't believe you talk to any women about feminism at all), they don't understand feminism, either. Women can miss the point of it too. There is a wide-spread misconception that it is about "man-hating."

And lastly, I don't think you are being harsh at all. What you say doesn't hurt me. I just think you're very ignorant. And there's no reason for me to keep bothering with this. And unlike you, I actually mean this: This is all I have to say to you about this topic.

It's time to move on. Have a nice day, no hard feelings, etc.

Okay, just going after the regular armor-costume discussion instead of the giant argument that refused to end....

I really do love the color pallet for the New 52 costume, but yeah, Tony Daniel drawing that panel makes it look pretty clearly like a fancy bathing suit. So I'm with the people who want a battle skirt, particularly if they can work in those ancient Grecian coin designs for the stars that were shown on the last few pages.

The Injustice game has two designs for Wonder Woman which I'd say have the correct elements but still showcase some problems. The Evil!Wonder Woman costume has a battle skirt and a more armor, but it's clearly designed to be a stereotypically "evil hot chick" costume; I mean c'mon, she's both wearing more armor than her counterpart and showing off more skin and cleavage. The Good!Wonder Woman has a better looking breast plate, one that actually does look armored and still showcases her feminine form without being overly stripperific, but kind of lacks some luster.

To me, someone needs to try the look of a muscled cuirass in a design just to see if that's a good blend of the old-fashioned spandex look with armor. It's basically what she has in that golden armored comic picture, so just color part of it red, throw in a battle skirt and see how that looks.

The climax will take place at a fancy ball where Diana gets into action and reveals her suit by ripping off her dress.

That art is fantastic, and Diana does look gorgeous. However, it does lend further credence to the "WW's costume is a glorified swimsuit" argument. Heck she's even standing on a beach.
