She Has No Head! – I Was Wrong, THIS Marks The Destruction of Feminism at DC Comics

David Finch Wonder Woman and White Rabbit

A promotional image from Finch’s Wonder Woman and Finch’s White Rabbit from his book The Dark Knight. Not nearly as different as they should be.

How do you top turning a matriarchal female society historically depicted as honorable in your comics into absolute monsters? For starters, you assign creators that either don’t know what feminism means, or worse, do know and are still afraid to use that word to describe the preeminent female hero in the world. In 2012 I thought feminism had been destroyed at DC Comics but I was wrong, because there were further lows to which we could descend.

We have found new depths as a creator (David Finch) assigned to the most important woman in comics doesn’t know what the word feminist means, or much much worse, knows what it means and doesn’t think that Wonder Woman is a feminist, in other words, he doesn’t believe that Wonder Woman believes in equality of the sexes.

You know what I can’t believe? That this kind of thing can still happen in the year 2014.
