Yeah--to me, what I found interesting about the Amazons wasn't so much that they were paragons of virtue or anything (when you look at the concept with modern eyes, it doesn't quite work as a utopic society, IMO), but that they were a culture alien from our modern one, which taught her how to be a warrior. That's still what they are now.

And hell, the book itself gives out a whole lot of possible retcons or explanations--from Eros saying that Aphrodite isn't as pure as she appears, to the Smith himself saying that all the Gods lie for their own self-interest. Not to mention that the whole point of showing Diana try to free her brothers was to show that things aren't always as they appear. I really doubt that this is all that Azz is going to do with the Amazons.
