>whitewashing Doctor Poison

Seriously, how many classic rogues have to be ruined before DC finds a good creative team?

Good thing Snyder wants to write her!

Though I doubt he's woman enough for DC to kick Meredith off or if he wants to write 2 books for DC at a time.

Did they abandoned that grotesque new costume they designed for her?

I actually admire that Finch is trying to draw characters with different faces and stuff. It's not working very well, but he's trying.

And the preview closes with a variant cover by Lupacchino, who I'd much rather see on this book

>>79101156
Same sort of thing happened with Flash. Johns had all that Zoom shit planned before the reboot and people wanted Manabooch to being back Wally and then Venditti/Jensen was the team who did both.

Fucking monkey's paw.

Well here's how she looked in the Golden Age...
>>
>>79101303
DC pretty much just told creative teams to make some new looks up for the hell of it post-Convergence. I don't think any of them were really meant to be long term unless they were extremely well-received. Some of them were even obviously temporary like Superman, Batman, and GL since they were connected to storylines.

So not only is this a whitewashing, it's an utterly bland and uninspired one to boot...

I don't see any whitewashing.

It wouldn't be Wonder Finch without painfully stilted exposition dumps
>>
>>79101156
It doesn't even make sense. She admittedly never read WW before she got the gig, so why does she care about bringing back the rogues? She also chose one of the most forgotten ones with Aegeus... for what purpose? And she just made him worse.

Maybe the editorial told her to do that?

I feel like I saw someone say that she told David to pick villains to use
>>
>>79101689
Yeah, by interviews it seems like David picks villains that he wants to draw and she goes along. Same reason why Swamp Thing was in the first issue.
>>
>>79101688
I really could see that through her mask.

>>79101689
Pretty much

>Nrama: We talked briefly last month about Aegeus. But can you tell us why you chose him to kick off the story and be Wonder Woman's initial nemesis?

>Meredith: We knew we wanted to bring someone from her rogues’ gallery into this next arc and start to flesh that out. And I really left it up to David, because I didn't care. I didn't have an attachment to any of the villains in her past.

>So I said to Dave, who would be the coolest for you to draw? And I let him make the decision, and we worked the story from that.

>Nrama: Ah, so it was you, David. Why Aegeus?

>David: I really wanted a villain that didn't have a lot of baggage already. And that allowed Meredith to create his backstory.

>In a sense, he's kind of an original villain, even though he existed before. We really wanted to do something different and new.

>The time will come when we have more rogues from her gallery come in, but right now, we have more of a gods story that we wanted to tell.
>>
>>79101807
That is awful
>>
>>79101807
>left it up to David, because I didn't care.

The art and the artist drive the plot. Just like 90s Image. Truly, this is a book everybody was asking for.

I think we can give the White Washing a pass in this instance, Dr Poison is I won't call her a stereotype, but she does harken back to the imperial Japanese Unit 731 type horrific shit they pulled in WW2 that was... this will make the Nazi's cringe level of evil, which the Japanese still relatively refuse to admit took place and is still a really sore spot in Japan/Chinese relations.

I don't get what the problem is by having a different individual character use the Dr Poison persona?
There has been 5 Hobgoblin users for god's sake!

>>79102004
There's nothing wrong with having her be a crazy Japanese doctor just because it was a stereotype in WWII. Is there something wrong with having a german neo-nazi villain?

Also, it's not a different character, it is Maru, but white.

It's starting to feel like the Finches are being stupid on purpose.

This is what I get for caring about things.

>>79101180

>>keep Japanese given name
Again, this is so stupid it seems outright malicious.
>>
>>79102136
Someone got paid for MANSPLAINING issue, as well.
>>
>>79102177
That was pandering, this is just pure shit.
Like, convoluted not reasons are being used in place of motivation here.
>>
>>79102004
There's plenty of ways to modernize the character past her WWII origins without having to whitewash her, >>79101684 for instance
>>
>>79102177
That was a one-shot digital issue that no one reads. This is just garbage.
>>
>>79102136
I will try to make sense out of it

Maybe after her parents refused to work for the US the spies told the Russians that they were going to work for the US so the Russians thought they were terrorists

But it's hard to know
>>
You know, they should've just made Veronica Cale into Dr. Poison. Cale runs a pharmaceutical company anyway, so it'd fit.

Although, Finch would just find a way to ruin Veronica as well, so whatever.
>>
>>79102272
Right, so she is working with the people she KNOWS tortured her parents to death to get back at the people who, through admitted mental acrobatics, may have cast initial suspicion on them.

>>79101807
>Meredith: We knew we wanted to bring someone from her rogues’ gallery into this next arc and start to flesh that out. And I really left it up to David, because I didn't care. I didn't have an attachment to any of the villains in her past.

How does she get away with this? Why is Tumblr not demanding a new writer for the book? If a male writer talked about the book like this, he would have been fired yesterday.

Because the dc tumblr literally does not care about comic stuff that isn't the batfamily.
>>
>>79102360
That's another thing... Between Veronica Cale and Paula Von Gunther, there's no need to change Dr. Poison into another blonde, white scientist...
>>
I like how WW reverted back to her old armor without explanation.
DC was just "ah fuck it, it wasn't the best design"
>>
>>79103015
Ares returns and her new outfit was for her specifically while being the Goddess of War.
>>
>>79103054
But the solicits still explicitly refer to her as the Goddess of War...
>>
>>79102481
Most have already fled from the book after her first issue...
>>

>>
>>79103015
It's even funnier when the "reason" given in the book to change the costume was that she was now "a woman, not a girl anymore"

>>79101415
It's a shame Lupa can't handle having an ongoing
>>
>>79103054
She's still God of War
>>
>>79102177
And yet the digital comics are routinely better than the main line Wonder Woman series.

Mostly.
>>
>>79103695
The Sensation Comics issues that were her fighting her actual villains were better than this garbage
>>
>>79103290
Yeah, pretty much. It was so vile they just ran for the hills.

We're just jaded to such horrors thanks to Storytimes of Pain.

He has done 8 issues of Starfire with no break or backup.

New 52 Wonder Woman is only 23 years old.
>>
>>79104128
She's older now
>>
>>79101014

They back to the costume old 52 costume, better than the last shit one.
>>
>>79104339
I knew it wouldn't last, but I thought they would create another one, not go back to the old one

Maybe they will do that after issue #52, specially if they relaunch
>>
>>79101976

There's nothing wrong with that, it's kinda like the marvel method.
>>
>>79103733

And she's not on the book anymore because she can't handle an ongoing.

like how they made such a big deal of wonder woman getting a new (terrible) costume in their comic and then editorial makes them pull it after one story arc.
>>
>>79104749
i don't blame her really. working interiors is a lot harder than people think. most artists don't do more than one book at a time because the demands are really heavy. she does a lot of variant cover work, among other things, for DC and even now for Marvel so leaving interior work when she can get paid about the same amount for working half as less as before makes sense.
>>
>>79104712
No.
Marvel method: plot > art > script
Finch method: fuck it > cool design > how can we make a story out of this?
>>
>>79101807
>We don't care and don't understand the character
How do these people land these books?

Flash, Aquaman and WW all have people who stated they either don't care, or have never read about the character.
