re: Wonder Woman's new origin
The most amusing (read: "amusing") thing is that a couple years ago, I was discussing Wonder Woman with someone who offered that "Wonder Woman makes guys uncomfortable."
Me: What, cause she can beat them up?
Her: No, because no man was involved in her genesis. Simply by her *existence*, she's a threat to the assumption of male necessity.*
But of course, I did not take this theory very seriously!
People the joke is on: ME.
*English major. I am paraphrasing, but I got the impressing she'd just finished an essay on the topic.
