It's J. Michael Straczynski. I've only read a little Thor, but I guess it makes sense. I am actually happier for who it isn't than who it is right now. I would have been very unhappy with Morrison. More at the Source

For legality here's Wonder Woman lifting Thor's hammer from a Marvel crossover.

Did I misunderstand or did JMS basically interview how it was awesome to writ e the character he's always wanted to write as well as his nearest analogue in the DCU? Because that is a somewhat amusing quote.

At the same time, while I'm not a great fan of Wonder Woman, I do really hope that JMS doesn't just consider her an analogue for Superman, because that would seem rather... weird approach to the character.

Reading the interview following the announcement, I think he was commenting on how analogous her iconism to female readers is to Superman's was to him.

I hope so, at least.

If he can work the same magic he did with Thor on Wonder Woman, I will be very happy.

Isn't JMS also writing the Superman: Earth 1 series as well?

Because that would be interesting (in a 'ooh, that's mildly interesting' sense) granted.

Ivanova strikes me as a decent first approximation for what a JMS-written Wonder Woman would be like.

JMS is a great multi-tasker and is capable of working on several books that will be massively delayed/unfinished.

Could be good. He's displayed a certain understanding of writing mythology in superhero stories.

Now, if he can avoid lateness, straw politics, and picking up and leaving in the middle of things, that would be nice.

Oooo, liking this idea. Straczynski loves anything mythological and does a great job with it, so I could see him doing brilliant things with Diana's powers, origin, and pantheon.

Not quite as sure about the Superman thing, but JMS also does yummy banter and character stuff. I loved how he wrote the Spider-marriage and Aunt May before the whole editorial kablooey, so I bet he'll do right by Lois and the rest of the supporting cast. His random side-characters are marvelous, too. I bet he'll do great things with the average Joe-and-Jill Metropolis.

I'm gonna go with "glass half full" here.

I totally agree--it got a bit too saccharine at points in ASM, but he did a good Spider-Marriage. Hopefully he's just as good with Lois & Clark. :D

JMS is a pretty good writer and his tendency to stuff everything with metaphysics should work with Wonder Woman, as long as there's an editor to step in and point out that no one cares about Morlun, even if Spider-Man is eating his head. (Metaphorically, I mean.)

Otherwise, God knows what we'll end up with...

This is yet another writer who could've done well following Rucka's path. (Ambassador, Gods UPdating to The modern age). And Editorial will not allow it.

arbre_rieur: (DC Nation)
From: [personal profile] arbre_rieur
What I find curious is that JMS mentioned in an interview that when he began working for DC, he specifically requested that he only be given assignments that would stay far away from crossovers or events from other books, as he was sick and tired of that sort of interference from his Marvel time. That's why he's on stuff like the Brave and the Bold and the Red Circle one-shots.

So has he changed his mind, or will Wonder Woman and even Superman now be off in their own corner of the DCU, never getting involved with the rest? I suppose that wouldn't be too much of a change for Wonder Woman, but Superman's pretty tightly intertwined with the other Super-books these days.

I was wondering about that too. His interactions with Marvel Editorial frequently made him unhappy, and DC Editorial has, at least to all appearances, been at least as involved in how its universe is run as Marvel is.
