Two absolutely good responses I didn't expect to get at all, thanks my dear lads.
I feel like, sadly and unfortunately since this is a WW discussion, that it's Superman that needs fixing back into a cocksure take-no-shit but friendly dude, so she can be fixed in turn and turned back into that peaceful and serene redeemer you guys mentioned. Superman was supposed to be the ultimate guy but, well, SUPER, obviously. But still a normal guy you and I could talk to and even pal around with (heh heh, Superman's Pal, what a concept!) while WW exudes an utter calmness and comfort like you'd hope for from paramedics or firefighters or all rescuing you.
Heck, it rolls into their villains' gimmicks and unifying theme. Superman's enemies and even his sci-fi ones can still be based in the ultimate -broad- issues of humanity, if he's the Man of Tomorrow let his foes be stuff we need to take down to become him: Zod the ultimate representation of militarism, Parasite that of greed, Metallo sadism, Toyman rejection and refusal to move on. WW's I felt, even mythological ones, are tthose that can bug people -individually- or keep them from love or whatever: Dr. Psycho about misogyny, Cheetah is jealousy, Giganta in scientist-origin inferiority complexes, Veronica Cale tall poppy syndrome... even Baroness Von Gunther as arrogance and Dr. Cyber vanity and all that. You'll see for both you can theme up BOTH normal human baddies and totally sci-fi/mythological comic booky enemies alike representing various aspects of those themes. Superman fighting humanity's issues as a whole while WW tackles the personal and individual failings.>>109030556
This too, I feel really bad she's in an endless loop of retcons since so many individual supporting civilians, fellow Wonder-family members, villains, plot points, etc. are great and could even bounce off of one another well.
