DC Comics! What are you doing for Wonder Woman's 70th Birthday?

What in the Hell is going on? Wonder Woman just turned 70 this year and what is DC Comics doing about this?

So far, I've seen nothing. Nothing, from DC but this damn reboot and Green Lantern (which is considered a FAIL). They tried to make a series but that failed, they gave her a broke ass costume change and they continue to downplay her power in the DC Universe.

Great Hera, where is the love for Wonder Woman?

Where are the celebrations, the items, some type of comic collector editions... Where? Come on, DC Comics, you could release special figures, statues, artwork, Lynda Carter's cape... Something!

This is a real disappointment, for real! She is one of the big 3, show her some respect!

V, unfortunately our world is still way too male dominated for Wonder Woman to gain greater traction in the mainstream.

Men still perceive her as a threat; they fear the power and place such a figure gives women and to some degree some gay men and straight men that do not feel the need to confine themselves to traditional straight gender roles.

It's why women in positions of power have to fight three times as hard to get that place and have to endure terrible isolation from all sides. Men really fear them and they instill that fear in everyone they can, including women. They fear the fact that they can be bested and eliminated or worse, both.

I feel it's good they are laying low on this because of the Palin bitch might influence the dumb.

I wanted to buy the William Messner Loebs WW Trade paperbacks... but they are not in print. It would have been a great gift for my neice... but DC is dropping the ball.
