>>112637961>For example, Wonder Woman shouldn't be presented as cheesecake or fanservice. She should be depicted as elegant and tastefully beautiful, like a Greek statue, or a goddess. The character is meant to inspire, not titillate, and be as appealing to women as she is to men.
She is that way in most of the materials despite wearing a swimsuit. Because unless the author wants to go out of the way for a joke she is treated in a tasteful manner (her bloodthirsty attitude is a different thing). Other heroines look up to her, her presence commands respect. This is a common motif regardless of the current writer. Just because she is supposed to be a mother/big sister figure it doesn't mean she is not allowed to be sexual. However I understand people who are either uncomfortable with sexuality or treat heroes they grew up with as family. I think the Rebirth/Movie outfit was a good compromise for both parties.
Here is something to think about: the thing that keeps Wonder Woman from being a true warrior of love is not showing skin but Superman and Batman. They took the two distinct role in the Trinity and writers simply can't figure out anything for Diana. The WW comics being extremely self contained since the dawn of time doesn't help either. Watch DC Super Hero Girls if you are interested in what someone can do with Diana is she is allowed to be the moral compass of a team.
