"Basically, in order to save the earth, [Wonder Woman] had to essentially commit murder," Heinberg said. "And so the world at large and the superhero community at large are very ambivalent about her."
Her gods "have retreated from the astral plane, as have the Amazons," he said. "She's left all by herself, sort of orphaned and trying to decide whether or not she's going to continue."
He mentions that he finds her relatable as an outsider, then it veers into pointless stuff about Marvel books before returning to the important issues.
When Heinberg takes on the print comic in June, the visuals may be completely new as well. Heinberg will work with the popular artist Terry Dodson, known for his sexy women and fluid action scenes.
"I think we're trying to make the book as smart and as entertaining and as sexy as we can," Heinberg said. "There's an element of sexual tension that hasn't been there for a while, some romance. A lot of action."
The story "goes out of its way to honor the character's history, but we're really forcing her and the book into new territory," he said. "I think it will be a treat for fans of the TV show, but also, longtime fans will not feel alienated in any way."
Is it June yet?
