As Val D'Orazio pointed out over a decade ago, DC corporate culture's attitude towards women is only slightly better than Son of Sam's.

Yeah, because introducing what's transparently a long-lost-relative-who-turns-out-to-be-a-bad-guy character* makes the book about that character. My god, it's hard to imagine the stupidity that is required to get to that line of thinking. By that logic, WW should only ever fight female villains.

I'd be more worried that it's James Robinson on writing duties, since his work has been... mixed... since he came back from whatever Hot-Wheels-movie-writing exile he was on post-Starman.

* - Assuming, here, but that's DC's go-to plot point.

That's an idea that could be really cool, imo. Like my little pony, but with a magic lasso.

I really don't see what the problem is here. They aren't replacing Diana, its a story arc with an already announced end. Having read fiction before, I am going to guess that things aren't quite what they seem. I see not being on board with James Robinson writing, since his output is either amazing (Starman) or miserable (Cry for Justice) and rarely fall between the two extremes. I still wish they'd let Marguerite Bennett have a go at the title, but she did get Batwoman since she was rumored to be writing Wonder Woman and might have been too busy.

edit - Sven got in there before me and more forcefully
