Diana of Themyscira: Wonder Woman by YNot1989
Diana of Themyscira: Wonder Woman
WB Animation, YOUNG JUSTICE, Wonder Woman. I claim no ownership of the character or her various incarnation across the DC multiverse, this was developed from an existing template.

As much as I despise modern depictions of Superman I can count on one hand the number of depictions of Wonder Woman across all media that I thought were good. In most forms, she's either depicted as a feminazi, a stripper, a 1950s "Lesbian who only needs a man" stereotype or all three if your name is Frank Miller. The only people I've ever seen treat her consistently with respect as a timeless character is the WB, Alex Ross and William Moulton Marston back when the character was basically DC's version of Captain America. And while I like all those versions, I always wanted to see them play with the mythology a little more. Here we have an Amazon, born of clay on an island of women who were killed by men across history, given new life by the Olympians. In terms of her appearance, I think Gal Gadot is passable at best, but once again we run into the biggest problem facing strong female characters in film, the actresses are never willing to put on the muscle mass required to be remotely believable because of the very body image hangups perpetuated by old patriarchal ideas of beauty Wonder Woman is meant to fight against. I do like that they got someone who looks Mediterranean to play the character, and think making her armor look more Greek was a smart move. Bruce Timm, as much as I love his version of the character, suffers the same physical problem and a simplistic uniform, but that's mostly because Bruce Timm is incapable of drawing characters who don't look like 40s pinup models. So here's my take on the character, basically Gal Gadot with a fighter's body and some color injected into the uniform. Once again this is part of my spin on the DC universe and my rules apply as always.

1. Accept that certain characters do not work in the modern age, and are better set in older points in time.
2. Let characters die and let their replacements matter.
3. Allow for diversity in story telling and focus on character driven stories.

Wonder Woman's story should start during WWII, focusing on her entry into Man's World, her relationship with Steve Trevor, which, rather than the typical "we're both hot and the leads, so of course we're gonna pork," model of American cinema should be more Miyazaki-esq, and focus on how two people help eachother keep on living. The movie should be introduced immediately after the Superman origin movie I concocted earlier, and serve as a "Captain America, First Avenger" of the series, in that it will serve to introduce a major character, and expand a wider universe justifying the need for a Justice League. I'd also like the movie to focus on how Diana is the only immortal among the Justice League, and how everything around her is dying while she remains physically the same. Steve should be introduced as a young man in his early 20s, but more mature than Diana due to his experiences in the OSS, but we should keep seeing Steve in future films aging, and how that contrasts to Diana who continues to grow and mature, but ultimately cannot save her love from the passage of time. This should be reflected in her home. Themyscira should be decaying by the time Steve washes ashore, we should see Hippolyta should be physically as young as all the other Amazons, but move with a frailty brought on by an eternal life and the burden of ruling the last bastion of the Olympians (who are all gone by this point in time, which will feed into the concept of the DC Universe Mythology in that the Justice League are the Gods of the Modern World). Diana should be sent out into Man's World, not just to teach them something about Amazon philosophy, but to also be the first to see if Amazons and mortals can coexist.

We open over the roaring fury of Rao's surface, and the glint of a space station just above the stellar maelstrom. The station is peppered with impacts from micrometorites, but looks like some ancient temple adrift in the void. A decrepit communications antenna adjusts its position and prepares to transmit, and we pan over the star system to reveal an ancient world dotted with city lights and ringed with the debris of eons worth of space exploration. We see the heart of Krypton, the City of Kandor, a monument to an age gone by, wet and tarnished beneath a red-orange sky, but still a symbol of a once great civilization.

The film cuts to the House of El, and we see Lara Lor-Van over the crib of the infant Kal-El. Jor-El enters, visibly exhausted but dignified, expressing to his wife how the prolonged sunspot activity has made the days of Krypton more taxing. He returns to his study with grey slates revealed to be interfaces of some kind, and pours over holographic data. Lara expresses concern for Jor-El's research, and fears the High Council would sooner bury her husband's findings than act on them, Jor-El simply hopes he won't be ignored as he has before. The following day Lara's fears are realized, and we see an ignorant and corrupt High Council of Krypton, who patronize Jor-El's work, or question some of the very notions behind his theories. They defer constantly to Braniac, who only affirms their ignorance. Jor-El states that Rao will go Supernova in a matter of weeks, and urges the Council to prepare for an evacuation. He is cast out of the council chambers.

Jor-El returns home, defeated, only comforted by his wife and the sight of his son. He returns to his lab and works to complete the lifeboat his son. A small craft, cobbled together from the remains of the once great fleet of the Kryptonian Imperium. The following morning, Lara tearfully swaddles her child in the ancient red pennant of the House of El, and Jor-El places his son in the capsule with a small black box. As the hatch closes, the cabin places the child in a state of suspended animation and lifts off as Jor-El and Lara embrace eachother. As the ship leaves the system we watch Rao begin to flicker and explode in a great supernova. As the opening credits roll we watch the shockwave vaporize worlds, send ships careening off course, and in once case we see the green shield emanating from a man fighting against the wave collapse and the glint of a green speck drift into the void. Finally, in 1938 the ancient capsule reaches the Earth and falls into the atmosphere. We see a young John and Martha Kent stargazing in the back of John's pickup, when a shooting star races across the sky, and is followed by a sonic boom, then a crash; the camera holds on the same spot of the sky as the Kents drive off, and we see one red star go out. Fade to black.

Cut to 1954, Kal-El is now Clark Kent, age 16, and attending Sunday services with his parents, accompanied by Lex Luthor, a boy who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. We see the two boys as close friends, and Lex a welcome guest at the Kent house. As the group exits the local Methodist Church of Smallville, Clark runs off to meet Lana Lang, while John and Martha happily look on and Luthor tries to hide his jealousy. Lana and Clark flirt back and forth at a local diner before Lana leaves in a panic after realizing she's late for something. Clark leaves the diner and enters into the alley just behind the building. He looks both ways, smiles and flies into the air. We are treated to a flying scene that shows the joy Clark gets out of his powers. The next day Clark and Lex return to Smallville High, and we see Clark as both honor student and captain of the football team. We only see shadows of the boy's great and growing power in the way he plays the on the field. Clark waves to Lana from practice, Lana is in the chemistry lab when a sonic boom cracks the sky and shakes the Earth, causing the lab to suddenly bursts into flames. Clark runs in at tremendous speed and we see fire dance around his flesh without burning it, as he pulls student after student out of the inferno, eventually rescuing Lana. As he exits a crowd has formed of other students and faculty, all trying to help revive the other students. Clark's coach approaches the boy calls the boy a hero, but we see many people look suspiciously at his lack of burns, some look almost frightened. Clark is visibly shaken by the way people look at him, and he hears their whispers as a cacophony of mistrust. Lex tries to congratulate him before he runs off.

Upon returning home Clark nervously tries to make dinner, still having trouble dealing with the way his friends and neighbors looked at him earlier. His mother comes in and tries to talk to him before panicking at the sight of Clark's hand on the stovetop. He removes it, undamaged, and begins to silently sob, asking, "what am I?" John enters the room and Martha gives him a look of concern, and knowing that the day they dreaded has come. The Kents take Clark to the tornado shelter beneath their home and John reveals to Clark a dusty footlocker. Clark sees its contents before Johnathan ever opens it, but is confused as to its significance. It his here that the Kent's reveal to their adoptive son his true origins. Little remained of the ship he arrived in, a few scraps of metal, the red pennant with a golden shield , and a black box with a simple message from his true parents. Clark holds the box and a message that only his ears can hear and his eyes can see plays. Jor El and Lara speak of Krypton, his birthname, and the legacy of their people, stating that under the light of Earth's yellow sun, he is everything their race once was, and closes with their love. Clark calmly hands the box back to his father and embraces his parents.

Cut to a grove of Hickory trees along a river and we see the impact site of the object that caused the sonic boom from earlier. A deer walks into frame and a single light begins to flicker on the strange object, the deer runs away and the stillness of the forest is awash with animals fleeing from the object. Its obsidian black undercoat is trimmed with a crystalline material and an untarnished metal. Beneath the crystal of the object's face, we see three glowing green circles.

Back at their high school, Lana looks for Clark on the Football field, but is informed that he quit the team, claiming his heroic efforts have left him having trouble breathing and nearsighted. Lana finds him in the Journalism club, bespectacled and talking to Lex about doing a piece on the Soviet test of a Hydrogen Bomb. Lana confronts Clark, who begins to cough almost on cue, and thanks him for saving her life, granting Clark a kiss in front of Luthor, who nervously tries to change the subject to the sonic boom that caused the chemistry lab to explode. Lana leaves, asking Clark to meet her after school, and Clark looks at a story about local dogs and cats disappearing from the town of Lyons, and a reported explosion just outside of the town just a day earlier. The same day as the Chemistry Lab fire. Clark and Lex look at eachother and we cut to the two driving to Lyons, Luthor is driving his father's old Buick, and Clark is nervous about Lex "borrowing" his old man's car, Lionel Luthor being known as an abusive drunk. Lex shrugs off his friend's concerns, saying that he's smart enough to keep his old man from finding out about their little excursion. The two meet several locals who direct them to a crash site, Clark dutifully writing down their testimonials.

They reach the grove and the crash site, revealing the object. Clark has been complaining of a shrill noise for the last leg of their journey and his holding his ears as Lex approaches the object. Lex is fascinated by the object and remarks about how small the impact crater is and how such a thing that could break the sound barrier and crash could be so undamaged. The ringing in Clark's ears is now at a fever pitch before it abruptly cuts off and the three circles glow green. A voice emanates from the object, "Seeking the codex of Jor-El." A force knocks Luthor on his back and the craft rises into the air. It flies off toward Smallville, Lex gets up, but is limping. Clark tells him to drive to Smallville to warn the town while Clark will find help in Lyons. Lex drives off, and just as he is out of site, Clark puts his glasses away and leaps into the air. He races after the object, knowing exactly where its going, and in a matter of minutes Clark catches up the craft, which stops midair. The voice asks the boy to identify himself, intrigued by the flying being on this primitive world. He gives his Earth name, and asks what the object is and what it wants. The object reveals itself to be Braniac, the construct that served as Kyrpton's custodian AI, who saved himself rather than the people of Krypton, who Braniac viewed as inferior shadows of a once great civilization. The Codex of Jor-El contains all of Jor-El's research, and is one of the few repositories of Kryptonian knowledge Braniac does not control. He further states that after downloading the content of the codex, he use the Earth to create a new Krypton by destructive means. Clark attacks the object which unfolds into a skeletal humanoid.  The battle rages across the sky, and Braniac upon touching Clark discovers him to be Kal-El. He attempts to reason with the boy, speaking of his birthright as the last Kryptonian. Clark proudly proclaims himself to be the son of Earth, and punches Braniac into the dirt. He lands, and we see Braniac's body broken and in pieces. Clark puts his glasses back on and feigns exhaustion from running to see the impact when several police officers come nearby. Clark proclaims himself to be a reporter for the Smallville Highschool paper, and the two officers shoo him away. Clark returns home to greet his parents, he tells the story and the Kents suggest that maybe he is meant to be Earth's protector.

The next day Lex is in the journalism club's room passed out, when Clark enters. He wakes, revealing a black eye, saying that his father knocked him out when he got back to town, and he was unable to warn anyone about the incident in Lyons. Clark assures him that there was no danger after all, and the object fell out of the sky shortly thereafter. Lex nervously states that the object is clearly from another world, and is by definition a threat to this one. Clark once again gets nervous at this xenophobia, but before the argument can continue Lana rushes in while a collection of other students storm down the hallway to the teacher's lounge. There the radio is playing a broadcast about how the police station in Lyons was suddenly destroyed by a mysterious figure, and unconfirmed reports of an object from the station flying towards Smallville. Lex looks at Clark with an "I told you so," glare. Braniac is self-reassembling en-rout to Smallville, meanwhile Clark leaves the school and flies for home. He lands, shocking his parents, and warning them to get out of the area before Braniac fires a volley of energy at Clark, dropping him. Johnathan emerges with a shotgun and knocks the machine over with two shots. As he reloads the machine rises again with only scorch marks on his crystalline Chest. He demands the codex and grabs the shotgun from Johnathan just as he fires again. Martha is knocked to the ground and Johnathan is held aloft by the machine. Braniac thanks Johnathan for caring for the Last Son of Kyrpton before he is grabbed from behind and thrown across the farm by Clark. Braniac rises again, his body self assembling, and remarking that Kal-El could rule this world as Krypton is made anew. Clark responds with a punch that knocks the robot head first into the ground. Braniac's head reassembles to the left of Clark's fist as his arm punches him the ribs, knocking him back to his parent's porch. Martha is holding John who is clutching his injured neck and Braniac states that at the very least, he can use Clark's genetic material to create a new race of Kryptonians. Clark rises to fight Braniac again throws a great punch, only for him to miss and Braniac to grab hold of his face. The machine muses to the Kent's about the greatness of the ancient Kryptonians when we see the back of Braniac's hand glow red before being sliced apart by Clark's heat vison. The machine attempts to reconstitute itself as Clark uses another blast to cleave the bore a hole down the length of Braniac's body. With the fight over, Clark embraces his parents. Fade to black.


Cut back to Smallville High, the cover story of the school newspaper boasts a story by Clark about the crash landing of a mysterious object outside of Lyons, declared by the government to have been a weather balloon. The camera pans over Clark laughing with Lana and Lex in the Journalism room, and we are treated to a photo montage of Clark's high school graduation, college dorm life, inter-spaced with news clippings of sightings of a mysterious blue and red figure. We then cut to 1966 where Clark gets a job as an intern at the Daily Planet. He's clumsily carrying papers between the desks of Journalists before spilling Perry White's coffee. Perry exasperatedly tells Clark to go on his lunch break before he hurts himself. As Clark walks down the sidewalk of Metropolis the sound of someone screaming echos across the city, and Clark runs  into a telephone booth where he opens his shirt to reveal the iconic Superman S. Credits.
Superman: Last Son of Krypton
I do not own the character Superman, the rights to any of the stories pertaining to thereof, nor any characters from DC Comics... I just think Man of Steel Sucks, and even I could come up with a better idea for a movie.

I'd imagine that the look of Superman in this version of the story would be closer to Alex Ross's depiction of the character. www.nrm.org/wordpress/wp-conte… No more of these actors who are just super toned, but don't really look strong. Superman should be built like a boxer. And Clark Kent should just radiate corn fed Kansas farmboy. He should be folksy, bashful, not, whatever the hell Henry Carville was doing with the character. In short, none of the Supermen of the past films have been remotely likeable as Clark Kent, and as Superman you're never in awe of the character. If I had to describe what kinda film this would be, its Captain America meets Chronicle with a dash of Super 8 and A River Runs Through It.

Well the last few months have been an unusual time for me. I have a big project I'm working on that demands my full attention (which has been difficult given my attention span), and there's a lot of hurry up and wait involved. I can't say much beyond that. Secondly I am now working on the Eurasian map for the Third Mexican War that will now replace the two other maps that feature Europe and Asia during the closing days of the conflict with a single map. Following that will be a final map of the American theater and then the post war world map.

Now onto my biggest distraction, as you know I was playing around with the DC comic universe lately and venting my frustration with the series. I've written some plot summaries of how I think the series could go and I think they make more sense than this Dawn of Justice crap. Check out my Superman plot summary before reading.

Wonder Woman: Treasure of Olympus - Movie opens with a monologue by Hippolyta recounting the death of the Olympians and Themyscira's origins as the last gift of Hera and the other Goddesses to the fallen warrior women who served them. We open on two Italian warplanes over the Agean Sea engaging a C-47 carrying Steve Trevor in 1943. Trevor is shot down and washes ashore on Themyscira where he meets Princess Diana and a cadre of Amazons. Trevor is captured and explains that he is on a mission to secure a cache of Olympian artifacts stolen by the Italians and currently en route to Germany via Otto Skorzeny. Hippolyta orders Diana to go with Tevor to seek out these artifcats and prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. Trevor and Diana make their way up the Italian coast and encounter Corporal Jay Garrick, who was just escaped from an Italian POW camp. Garrick, having actually seen the Olympian treasure reports that his captors said it was last seen going to Bolzano near the Austrian border. As they leave, Garrick is seen tucking a silver helm into his backpack before boarding his plane for home. Diana and Trevor eventually make it to Bolzano, but find out that the treasure is on its way to Berlin by train. They board the train and capture the chest, in it contain a number of Olympian treasures, but Skorzeny has apparently escaped with one of its most dangerous items, the Baetylus, a coin that grants the one who holds it immortal life. With Skorzeny gone, Diana and Trevor are forced to regroup and track down Skorzeny and the Baetylus. Trevor books passage aboard a Merchant Mariner ship in Ancona and the pair sail for Palestine where they will travel by train to Tehran where Skorzeny is reportedly en rout to assassinate "the big three." While aboard Diana and Steve meet Alan Scott, a merchant mariner. When the ship is attacked by a German U-boat, Scott uses a trinket he found while at port in China to defend the ship, a strange green ring that Diana is not familiar with. They depart for Tehran from Palestine and arrive in time to stop Skorzeny from carrying out his assassination. After a climactic fight Skorzeny escapes, but not after Diana had take the Baetylus from him. The film ends with Diana returning to Themyscira with the Baetylus where it will be kept from Man's World.

Batman: The Long Halloween - Batman's origin is shown just prior to the credits, showing the death of Bruce Wayne's parents and a young Bruce staring into Crime alley where he sees the mask of an owl in the shadows. Cut to 1966, Batman is tracking down Victor Zsasz, with the newly appointed commissioner Jim Gordon. Zsasz is arrested after a brief fight, and Batman regroups with Gordon and Harvy Dent, establishing Batman's positive, if covert, relationship with members of the GCPD and the DA. At the batcave we see a wall in the background with red yarn connecting various newspaper clippings and photographs to a sketch of the Owl mask Bruce saw the night his parents were murdered. The story closely follows that of the original comic of the same name, featuring a string of crime family murders perpetrated by the mystery crook Holiday, and the efforts of Batman, Dent and Jim Gordon working together to try and get ahead of Holiday before he commits his next murder the following month. The story focuses on Batman as a detective and the relationship between Gordon, Dent and the Dark Knight. As the story unfurls, Dent starts to crack with the pressure of trying to solve this case, revealing flashes of his other personality to Batman, who tries to console his friend. Eventually Dent's psyche is completely shattered when Sal Maroni shove's dent's face into a barrel of Hydrochloric Acid, severely disfiguring him before Batman breaks in and saves Harvey from Sal. While Harvey is recovering at Gotham General, Gordon comes to the conclusion that Dent IS Holiday, Batman refusing to believe it until they confront Dent and discover him out of his bed and in his suit, half of which is drenched in blood. Dent escapes and kills Falcone before Batman and Gordon can stop him. Batman chases Dent to Grace Gold's apartment and after a brawl Harvey is arrested and claims that there were Two Holiday killers. The film closes on Grace destroying several files on the victims of the Holiday murders.

Justice League - 1969, the Justice League battles Grodd at the beginning of the film, Steve Trevor, now one of the founding members of the CIA, informs the League of new intelligence into the Palomares incident of 1966, revealing that the two bombs believed to have been destroyed, in fact fell into the Atlantic and were recovered by Vladimir Savinkov (Vandal Savage), a high ranking KGB officer, and Soviet war hero. Savinkov is apparently still in possession of the bombs, and has apparently kept this from the Soviet Government. Over the last several years he has been making regular trips aboard Soviet ships to the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and the last two trips included two large crates large enough to hold both bombs. The CIA believes he has positioned both devices on the ocean floor, but are unaware what his intent is with the weapons. Wonder Woman points out that the location is very close to the lost city of Atlantis. The League travels with Agent Trevor to the Ridge during Savinkov's next trip (we see the romance between Diana and Steve has blossomed since the war), and using a Wayne Enterprises DSRV (henceforth named the "Batsub" by Jay) the league discoveres the lost city of Atlantist (several ruins along the ridge, and what looks like Roads and sunken aquaducts lead them to it. The city is home to Atlanteans, humans given the power to live beneath the waves by Poseidon himself. They are ruled by Arthur, a direct decendant of Poseidon (King Arthur of the Sea, blond, short beard and hair, possibly played by Nikolaj Coster- Waldau. Arthur is currently recieving "Ambassador," Savinkov who is trying to establish an alliance between the Soviet Union and the Atlaneans. We see a lot of Atlanis, Roman Empire of the Sea, Savinkov is revealed to be Vandal Savage, the nukes are set to explode and destroy one of the outlying communities of the city and drive Atlantis to war with the Surface Dwellers. Savage is also working with Black Manta and there's a coup, big battle between Savage, the League and two factions of Atlanteans, movie ends with Superman and Arthur taking both bombs away from the city where they explode just as both men get our of range. Movie ends with Arthur becoming a potential member of the League, and Savage being taken to a CIA black site.

Bad enough to where the only counter argument to "we only have 1 year of water left," is "it's not so bad, its more like 3 years of water if we ration it properly, which we won't because Southern Californians are the most self-absorbed people on Earth."

What are California's long term prospects if the situation continues to get worse ?

Well, before I begin I'm just gonna warn you now, that I hate California, and my answer will be biased. So, what will happen? Well, rationing probably won't be put into any meaningful effect until the state starts to feel the sting of water shortages. So in about a year, regardless of who's right in terms of estimates, California will start to panic as they feel what they've already been told. Food prices will increase, businesses that depend on a lot of water will start charging more (car washes, landscaping companies, gold courses, etc.) Local municipalities will start passing their own rationing policies, but they won't go far enough, and in about two years, three tops, California will be in a full on economic disaster. Unfortunately Jerry Brown won't be kicked out of office until the elections in 2018, and his administration won't make any meaningful effort to get ahead of the crisis. The liberal elites will blame big business, and business will blame the average citizen, and the farmers will remind everyone who really makes California's economy so damn big and if they're not marching on Sacramento or starting riots I'll be very surprised. As all the plants kept alive in defiance of nature start to die, expect fires to get way worse, Washington and Oregon MIGHT sell California some water from the Columbia at a high price to keep things from total and complete chaos, but in all likelihood what you'll ultimately see is a realigning of west coast politics and economics.

You will see Californians slowly but surely start to turn on eachother, with renewed calls for secession of the various regions into new states. Jefferson will be largely ignored I think, Southern California will probably try to keep everyone else from leaving, and SanFran will pretend that none of this has anything to do with them. The Federal Government will bale out the state, but it won't do any good to save their economy in the immediate run. DOE and California's government will work to set up Desalination plants, but everyone will no those won't come close to producing the kind of water they need to go back to their old way of life. And while all this is going on, the economy of Washington and Oregon will be booming. Agricultural investments in those states will increase dramatically, especially in wineries; startups will start setting up shop in Tacoma, Redmond and Portland (the real heart of the TechCom industry), the real-estate market of those states will see a boom from all the rich assholes from LA moving north, and the Northwest will hate every minute of this as they're average incomes soar, because now they don't get to be the quiet little states in the forgotten corner of the country anymore. Silicon valley will try to survive, but they'll start loosing engineers and technicians to the rest of the country (Texas will be a popular second choice for a lot of these migrants with masters degrees). But I doubt the start up bubble will burst, it will just shift north and east. 

Ultimately the end game for California is this: They will start to look a lot more like a Southwestern state, and they will come to terms with the fact that everything their state is, is based on a house of cards.

Does Donald Trump have a chance in hell of becoming President, if so would he be any good at all ?

Ah thank goodness then.

I saw an article on MSN saying he was considering running for office in 2016 and it gave me heck of a fright, I have no issue with the US but I'd not trust it if Trump was running things.

Any particular reason you have alien contact happening in the late 21st century? For all we know, the factors that led to intelligent life on Earth are very rare in the universe.

I figure once we have FTL, which given NASA's newest projects into Warp Drive will likely happen in the Mid 21st Century, it won't take very long to find other civilizations.

Well, that's a big "if" in and of itself. NASA is studying FTL travel, yes, outright now only from a theoretical standpoint. Today there's no way of telling if it'll ever be doable with existing or near-future technology. The Alcubierre drive, after all, involves negative energy. According to physicist Sean Caroll:

The Alcubierre warp drive is a very interesting arena for thought experiments to try to better understand general relativity and quantum field theory, but it should give you zero hope for actually building a spaceship some day. Some of the many problems are discussed on Wikipedia. In short, it requires negative energy densities, which can't be strictly disproven but are probably unrealistic; the total amount of energy is likely to be equivalent to the mass-energy of an astrophysical body; and the gravitational fields produced would likely rip any ship to shreds. My personal estimate of the likelihood we will ever be able to build a "warp drive" is much less than 1%. And the chances it will happen in the next hundred years I would put at less than 0.01%.
