Morrison fascinated by ‘contradictions and complexities’ of Wonder Woman

In the past six months Grant Morrison has moved from apologizing for his treatment of Wonder Woman in Final Crisis to hinting at a “different project” that might examine the themes surrounding the Amazonian princess.

Now he reveals she’s the iconic DC Comics character he’d most like to work with next.

“I’ve become fascinated by all the contradictions and complexities in the character over the years,” Morrison tells the A.V. Club in a broad-ranging Q&A, “and would love to do an All-Star Superman-style take that would clarify and redefine what she stands for, and what she’s capable of as a character.”

In his appearance with author Clive Barker earlier this month at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood, Morrison said, “These extremely weird, dark elements of Wonder Woman haven’t been adequately dealt with. Wonder Woman remains a really bizarre, untouchable character. She should represent women in the same way Superman represents men.”
