Nicki Minaj as Wonder Woman

Yesterday all I could have told you about Nicki Minaj is that she has a Lil'Kim/Lady Gaga thing going on. Well, thanks to Tumblr I have a bit more respect for her. Definite points for being the Amazon. The Star Trek reference doesn't hurt things either.

Wonder Woman on Batman Brave and the Bold!!

If you get a chance, check out the new episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. While the episode of the cartoon features Batman and Green Lantern fighting Star Sapphire, in "Scorn of the Star Sapphire" Wonder Woman makes her debut in the 3 minute teaser at the beginning of the show. I found it extremely fun as it is both a nod to her silver age persona and very well executed. In the hopes of encouraging you all to check your local TV networks for when "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" airs so you can catch Wonder Woman in "Scorn of the Star Sapphire" I posted the above picture from the episode. If this plays out as it usually does with this show, we can expect a later episode that features Wonder Woman working with Batman. In lieu of a live action TV Show it isn't much, but I found it to be 3 minutes of Wonder filled bliss. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A glimpse of what's to come....

DC reboots 52 new titles in September, including an all-new Wonder Woman#01 and a JLA #1 with Wonder Woman in the line-up. Here's a look at her new costume drawn by Jim Lee. Looks like she gets to keep her pants--yay!!

Variety: "Wonder Woman Pilot Deserves a Second Look"

Interesting article from Variety on the cancellation of the "Wonder Woman" series. [link]

"What Kelley did with the pilot, rather shrewdly, was completely avoid the whole traditional superhero origin story. Instead, he begins in a world where there's somebody known as Wonder Woman -- a widely known vigilante hero -- who supports her crime-busting endeavors through merchandising deals, including an action figure. The business is run for her by a character played by Cary Elwes, who keeps reminding her that if she wants to thwart evil-doers, she has to sell dolls, too."

That could have worked. Being barred from Themriscyra, there is a question to how does Diana support herself? Certainly that secretarial job for the Air Force wasn't going to make paying bills a non-issue.
