Over on Paradise Island, Hera does indeed appear, resplendent in cape of peacock feathers. Knowing she has no chance against a goddess, the warrior queen bows down and asks for forgiveness. And Hera seems set to look with compassion on the weaker woman, so vulnerable to her husband's charms.

Diana finds Hippolyte, but she's in no fit state to accept an apology thanks to the departed Hera. She's been petrified, and her Amazon sisters are in equally dire straits, having been transformed into snakes.

I... really have no intention about going on about what kind of god Zeus is, or what the new origin is bringing into the story - it should be self-evident. In my opinion, it is bringing in some interesting aspects to Diana's story, and therefore, I'm following the storyline despite my reservations about it. If you don't see it, we're just going to have to agree to disagree.

Daddy issues.

Daddy issues.

"If you don't see it, we're just going to have to agree to disagree."

I've seen daddy issues before.

"I've seen daddy issues before."

Has to be said, though -- just because 'daddy issues' has been done before (and yes, granted, quite a lot) doesn't mean it can't be done in an interesting way here.

It's obviously not to your taste (and based on our previous discussions I doubt that's going to change) but just because it's been done before doesn't mean it can't be done again well; otherwise, by that logic no story could ever be told.

Oh, I have no qualms with daddy issues in general. I guess I'm just tired of seeing it in all my movies.

Dare Devil = Daddy issues
Ghost Rider = Daddy issues
Batman Begins = Daddy issues (His mother doesn't even do anything)
Super 8 = Two daddy issues (Mothers have either abandoned their families, or are dead)
Green Lantern = Three daddy issues (No mothers seen, mentioned or acknowledged. I think the fathers reproduced asexually)
Star Trek = (Mothers were either written out of the story or used for fridges)
Thor = Daddy issues (Rene Russo gets to pick up a sword....)
Iron Man 1 and 2 = Daddy issues (Father asks where mother is? I'd sure like to know)

I'm just tired.

Also, there shouldn't be daddy issues to begin with. That'd be stupid. What the heck are they going to do?

This, so much, and it's not like it's just superhero movies either. I am getting tired of it.
