Also can I say what a copout this is to deflect criticism from a character, when Batman and Superman sure as shit don’t resemble their original characterisation either but also have ACTUALLY GOOD runs other than those published by one specific creator? All the while interacting with a setting wider than their own solo. You can call Diana’s behaviour in the crossovers OOC all you like, but that doesn’t magically preserve her dignity with some bullshit Wonder Woman Canon dimension. It’s published, it’s burned into my memory and until DC mans up and fucking EXPLAINED the contradiction I’m not letting go of it. Remember when DC fused New 52 Superbro and Rebirthman to explain, very clearly, the latter was gone for good?
The in-universe explanation of "well this god fucked up with the reality and Diana ended up being a cunt when she entered to the men's world" is bullshit, you can use every Grant Morrison explanation but the truth is that DC fucked up their own stories.>Diana doesn’t get ANYTHING that dignified. First she went insane and got locked up from the shock of the greek god fake memories. Then Endless Winter reaffirmed her being the God of War, and therefore the Azz/Rucka run as canon. Throughout all this GRAIL has stayed hard canon, as affirmed by Orlando and Abnett (Justice League Odyssey), which means Johns made Grail canonically able to battle Diana and win while Diana was a deity. That last part isn’t technically a criticism because it’s just powerlevels, but it does still bother me now Grail is trying to assemble DC’s X-Blade.
The canon being fucked and Grail still existing is cringe and there is no doubt on it
