COMICS: Grant Morrison Talks More About His Plans For Untitled WONDER WOMAN Series
While he may be leaving behind monthly superhero comics as he wraps up his runs on Action Comics and Batman Incorporated, Grant Morrison still has big plans for another of DC's most iconic superheroes. Read on for details.
Widely believed to be All-Star Wonder Woman, Grant Morrison's still untitled Wonder Woman series has been on the cards for years, but with the prolific writer now wrapping up his runs on Action Comics and Batman Incorporated , it's close than ever to becoming a reality. Talking to Newsarama recently, this is what Morrison had to say about his plans for the series and his take on the Amazonian princess. Be sure to sound off with your thoughts on this below.
"Wonder Woman is more... unified, I think. The original idea of Wonder Woman was pretty sound. And I think the other great idea of Wonder Woman was her TV show with Lynda Carter. So I'm going to try to do something that's got all of that. As I told you, I've been working my way through the entire history of feminism, and I'm doing my research, and I'm talking to everyone, and my wife is leaning over my shoulder. So I really want to make it a particularly good book."
"It's different from Superman and Batman, because I think Wonder Woman... there have been different Wonder Womans — you know, the mod, 1960s, Wonder Woman. But we're trying to unify everything into a... I don't know if I can answer this one, Vaneta. I think this is more like All-Star Superman than how I did Batman, you know? Because I actually took a really different approach to Wonder Woman than I did with Batman, where I was combining all the ages into one man's life. And I worked it out on a 15-year timescale... when he was 25 and met Talia, and on from there. And I had all that worked out."
"But with Wonder Woman, I kind of read a bunch of stories and then ignored them all. This is like a completely new version of Wonder Woman."
