Recently, the question came up as to whether or not Geoff Johns has improved in writing Wonder Woman. Since I can't find relevant scans for the first issue of Darkseid War, and I have to wait a while before I can post the scans I found of the second issue due to house rules, I thought I'd post this bit from the Amazo storyline that came right before.

So I posted some tidbits about the upcoming Earth One: Wonder Woman book, and some discussion came about based on how the character has changed. I thought I'd post a bit that shows why the Earth One book is important in showing a different side of Wondy (though from what I've heard, Geoff Johns has improved in writing her recently.)

Brad Meltzer: "For the first time in a long time, you can see Batman's eyes. That may seem like a minor change. It's not. Johns and Frank know that the real appeal of Batman is what hides within him. Now they're letting us take a brand new, breathtaking peek ... inside and out."

Geoff Johns: Much like Wonder Woman, who I've had an epiphany about over the last year or so, the same thing happened with the New Gods when I went back and reread all these New Gods comics, and Mister Miracle comics -- I knew I wanted to bring the New Gods into this, with Darkseid and Grail and Anti-Monitor, but when I was reading them all, I said, "Which one is going to be a thorn in Darkseid's side the most?" Originally I thought it was Orion. But actually, it's not Orion -- it's Scott. The reason it's Scott is because if you look at what Darkseid wants, he wants his will imposed over everything. If there's one thing that keeps slipping through his fingers -- one soul, one person that keeps escaping his grasp -- he's going to notice that, and it's going to ultimately become an annoyance to him. And if that one thing starts to affect other things, it's going to be a problem. So if Scott is someone who embodies free will -- he's all about escape, that's his whole thing. He is the ultimate protagonist against the antagonist of Darkseid. "Oh, it's not Orion at all, it's Mister Miracle -- let me get more into Mister Miracle." As I got more into that character, I fell in love with that character.

Geoff Johns: "A lot of the elements and a lot of the character and a lot of the revelations and mythologies point back to Diana. And this is a journey for Diana and almost a reaffirmation of what Wonder Woman is, and what she represents. So it's going to explore all of that, and then on the story side, it's going to reveal a lot of secrets about the DC universe and our characters that we don't know. Jay [Jason Fabok] and I are really trying to make this an epic event book in the monthly book, but there's also a level of mystery to it."

While I don't love IDENTITY CRISIS, I really like one part of it. One part that I think Brad Meltzer and/or Geoff Johns should have expanded upon. One page from FLASH #214 after the cut.

Certain creators not liking certain characters is nothing new. But sometimes it is hard to tell.
In GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH, it certainly seemed Geoff Johns doesn't like Batman. Specifically, the post-Zero Hour Batman. John Stewart said Batman never liked Hal Jordan because Hal wasn't afraid of him. (Because Batman's just that petty.) But let's move on to INFINITE CRISIS.
