Wonder Woman has had a tough time in the mass media between her failed screenplay
by Joss Whedon and her recent failed television pilot
, making Kate Beaton's wonderfully sullen take on the character
seem more apropos than ever. "The Wonder Woman that I draw is kind of sick of everyone not understanding her," the webcomic creator told ComicsAlliance
last year. In the latest batch of drawings
on Hark! A Vagrant
, an entertainment exec complains about Wonder Woman being "too weird to deal with," Batman and Superman give her advice about origin stories, and she uses her Lasso of Truth to perform a simple but brutal shutdown of a fool, which is always a heroic act in our book.
