Look, I think we can all agree that the idea that Wonder Woman is too complex a character to develop into a property everyone can get behind is full of shit.  If you don’t believe me, take a look at the DC Nation Wonder Woman videos created by Robert Valley.

Can’t believe I missed this when it first ran last year on Cartoon Network. I’m kind of glad I did because I can enjoy this for the first time, instead of lamenting the decision to yank the DC Nation block from the programming… though now that I think about it – who was the brilliant mind behind that decision?

    When I saw this a few months back, I really wasn’t all that thrilled with it, save that it was a Wonder Woman Venture, and I always thought that she needed more solo coverage, pretty much like everyone else who has any care at all about either the Character or about Female Comic Characters in general.

    At first I thought it was the story itself… Steve Trevor crashed on the island, OK I get that the Amazons what to detain him, but where did they get Military Jeeps with missile launchers, and why is Diana now driving a Dodge Charger, and where the hell did the surf board come from???

    Then I thought it was the Animation. Everything seems far too stretched out and angular, and Wonder Woman Herself looks poorly proportioned in the facial area. This may well be a standard in Robert Valley’s art style, but it really isn’t all that impressive to me.

    The only thing i really enjoyed about the whole thing, was that it was about Wonder Woman, Despite the fact that it Highlighted absolutely none of her powers, except punching Giganta once, while surfing, and Saving Steve Trevor. You could have pick out any other Person from Paradise Island, and dropped her in that Charger, and it would have been the same story.

    E for Effort, and a sincere thank you for trying…

    What the heck did I just watch? To quote a very “special” man, “It’s like that drug trip I saw in that movie when I was on that drug trip”.

    This rocks. It’s not a definitive take on the character by any means, but it’s a cool idea. To put it another way, I couldn’t care less about WW or her big screen whatever, but I’d watch this religiously if it were on Cartoon Network. Sorry, I’m just not a purist when it comes to a character that even her own publisher can’t figure out what to do with.
