I'm a little more generous to the New-52 than some other fans, there are a lot of books I've enjoyed, including Wonder Woman, but one thing I have not been able to forgive is making Diana the daughter of Zeus. Of course Azzarello and Jim Lee had their reasons for doing so, as stated in this article:“She’s going to learn she’s not who she was told she was,” Azzarello told the Post. “Everybody’s got a father, even if he’s not the nicest guy in the world.”DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee told the Post that rewriting the character’s origins to make her the offspring of two parents rather than, say, sand could make Wonder Woman accessible to many readers. “In this case, making her a god actually makes her more human, more relatable,” said Lee.
I reject that reasoning... first off I question why in a universe where there are a number of last of their kind aliens, demons, and immortals we read about that a woman forged from clay is such a stretch. The two largest religions in the world share a creation story where a man was formed from dust, and his wife from his rib.
Never mind the "everyone has got a father," thing while true from a biological perspective (depending on how you define father), does not necessarily play into the life of every person raised by a same-sex couple, or single parent.
And most importantly, it undermines a parallel to Greek Myth and the origin of Pandora in Hessiod's Works and Days. More on that( behind the cut )
