THE ISSUE OF WONDER WOMAN’S SIZE
by Brett Jett

“Truth is…I thought you’d be taller, or bigger muscles and all that. %@#&! You’re pretty spry though.” —Angel, in season 1 of Buffy TVS.

Ever since Israeli actor Gal Gadot was casted to play the first on-screen part of Wonder Woman, a certain segment of fans have protested it as a mistake. According to these particular fans, Gadot is too skinny, not “Amazonian” tall enough, and doesn’t have large bouncy breasts.
Well…that’s quite an expectation!

Some people feel WW should look lovely, like a supermodel. Others think she should be statuesque, tall, claiming that the very nature of being an Amazon is to be tall. Although that notion of Amazons is false, its nice that everyone has their own ideas about how Wonder WW should look, her body type, size, etc.
But the most disturbing part of all of this is that many of those fans have asserted that their demands are based on the original WW concept. As a scholar of the original Marstonian WW design, I can testify that their assertion is false.

Joss Whedon understood Dr. Marston’s concept in Wonder Woman’s size that he applied to his Buffy, as did many of the other creators of the various WW archetypal successors….Rob Thomas, Luc Besson, JJ Abrams, etc. That concept was originally expressed in one of Wonder Woman’s comics stories where she says:
WW: I’m often asked the secret of Amazon strength. Its this–the human brain contains enough energy to blow up mountains. Amazon girls are trained to direct their brain power into their muscles!
My muscles are no larger than a normal girl’s should be.

Priscilla (after measuring WW): She has perfect “modern Venus” measurements!
WW: Miss Rich is an athlete–her muscles are like mine. Yet she cannot break this little chain.
My amazon training sends brain power to my hands and–Hola!

Since Joss and the other creators understood it, so should all of you fans.
Additionally, Dr. Marston had portrayed Wonder Woman’s body size in comparison to other Amazons, throughout his comics run. He would show large, and exceptionally tall Amazons. Then he’d show small, short and fat Amazons. While standing next to these extreme-sized Amazons, it was clearly evident that Wonder Woman was in the middle…a mesomorph…not too skinny or short, and not too tall or thick. That was the original idea/design.

Why did he make her average sized? I could not find any rationale that he wrote. Perhaps it was to serve as a template to help all women of various sizes to see themselves not too far from being like Wonder Woman. Who knows?

And in regards to fans’ comments about WW’s boobs needing to be voluptuous, there was nothing about Dr. Marston’s original design that said WW had to have plump breasts. Fans’ expectation of plump breasts as a WW staple is simply a Lynda Carter incidental. It was not the original “has-to-be-there” design. If you take a look at the Golden Age original comicbooks, you can clearly see that WW never had large breasts or even much of any cleavage.
Sure, some artists have drawn her to have very voluptuous, sexy breasts. But those were simply their interpretations of WW’s body. They could never claim to represent the default, original requirement of the character.

Bottomline….
Don’t worry about Gal Gadot’s size suitability to play Wonder Woman….she’s toning up (not too much though)….she’s just right, fine for the part. And true to the original Marston concept. She’s our gal.

WW's body -- strip

Matthew McConaughey has so far not been in a superhero film and to be honest I’m quite happy about that.

Not one of my favourite actors, to say the least but apparently he has been in talks with both Marvel and DC about being in a film. Even so far as he has seen a few scripts.

In more recent news it’s rumoured that he might be the next Norman Osborn, one of spider-man’s most famous enemies, at least he’s not going to be Green Lantern, that would shatter my dreams. With spider-man being in the Captain America: Civil War does this mean we could see a potential appearance from Osborn or maybe even the Iron Patriot??

Only rumours but it could be true!

I made the mistake of thinking last week’s episode of “The Flash” was the finale. It felt epic enough with the defeat of Reverse-Flash and the emergency team up of Green Arrow, Firestorm, and Flash. If it hadn’t been for my brother keeping up with things and asking me if I’d seen it yet, I probably would have been way off my deadline with this one, busying myself with other work and other projects. Thankfully, I just watched it and “Fast Enough” did not disappoint. Most of what I feel like talking about is the enormous pile up of Easter Eggs in this episode. The story itself spent a great deal of time tying up loose ends and wrestling with the enormity of the biggest decision of Barry’s life: whether or not to travel back in time to rescue his mother.

 

For starters, this episode gave us an excellent last minute surprise that clearly had been planned from the beginning. In an alternate timeline, Cisco Ramon was murdered by Wells and in the new timeline he is able to remember it in detail. This defied logic and even science if analyzed until, that is, the new discovery. Cisco has a power: an ability to see through time that he obtained from the particle accelerator accident. It was the one major loose end that had been nagging at me and this solves it flawlessly.

 

Admittedly, there are gaps in my comic book knowledge and this is one that slid by me. After some quick research to see if he would become an established character or something new, I discovered “Vibe.” It’s been there right in front of us all this time. Vibe was created in 1984 and had the same name as our beloved team goofball, Cisco Ramon. While his abilities in the comics and what powers have manifested in the show are still very different, it’s clear that we are getting a rebooted version of a lesser known character and it’s awesome on multiple levels. The original character had the power to create sonic waves, but after a rewrite in 2012 altered his origin story, making it so that he got his Vibe powers from his proximity to an opening Boom Tube, a kind of wormhole technology from the world of Darkseid and Orion and an entire other article to explain it all, Vibe suddenly had a new angle that included the fabric of time and space. This enables him to disrupt the Speed Force and it is likely that the character we get in the show will come out very similar to that rebooted version. Replace “Boom Tube” with collapsing dark matter explosion and it comes out more or less the same. This connection to warping space-time shines a light on how he was able to remember another timeline, but more importantly it means he has an entire spectrum of abilities that he has yet to uncover and explore.

 

Vibe was one of the earliest examples of a Latino superhero and, given the often panned absence of diversity in comic book characters, that makes this a welcome addition to the DC television universe. He will also be able to bring a lot more to the team and to the show in Season 2 even as he maintains his wit and charm. There were certainly moments that Cisco more or less existed as the last minute go-to for handy gadgets and quips, I for one look forward to seeing more from him next season. That said, he got one of the great lines from this particular episode. When wishing Barry good luck on his crazy mission he said, “May the Speed Force Be With You.”

 

After analyzing the question of changing history from every possible angle, the risks, the rewards, and the potential global impact, Barry finally decides to go for it. Using the particle accelerator and running faster than he ever has before turned the tunnel of the supercollider into a modified version of the Cosmic Treadmill from comic fame. Entering the Speed Force and colliding with a hydrogen particle would open a wormhole, allowing Barry to go anywhere in time and opening a doorway for Eobard Thawne to go home.

 

With his speedster abilities diminished, Wells had to use a kind of time capsule in order to traverse the wormhole safely. According to Wells, the capsule was the design of Rip Hunter, a time traveler and the man set to be the leader of the team on the upcoming spinoff “Legends of Tomorrow,” who will be portrayed by Arthur Darvill. Rip Hunter will unite the heroes to battle the villain Vandal Savage, an immortal evil-genius bent on world domination and the usual megalomaniacal behaviors.

 

As the portal opens, someone tossed the original Flash’s Hermes helmet in through the wormhole, the one worn by Jay Garrick who was the first to don the Flash identity. Wells remarks, “That’s my cue to leave,” meaning he likely knew about Garrick and either didn’t want to deal with facing him or didn’t want to answer any questions like how there could have been another Flash without anyone knowing about it.

 

Inside the Speed Force itself, as Barry moves through time to select the moment he wants to travel to, a lot of things Flash briefly on the screen that will be seen in episodes and spinoffs to come. We got a glimpse of Killer Frost, an evil ice-wielding baddie that has been an enemy of a lot of DC characters and event he Justice League at large for decades. There was also a glimpse of Barry Allen in handcuffs, clearly in prison which might be an allusion to an upcoming story arc or just a cool image. Another image showed us a marble building with a bronze statue out front that could only be the infamous “Flash Museum” and there was probably tons more that I missed.

 

Back at that pivotal moment in Barry’s life, he hides in the closet as he waits for his future self to rescue his child self before he goes to save his mother. That’s one of the weirdest sentences I’ve pieced together in a while. A big surprise came when his future self, knowing where to look for him, holds out a hand and shakes his head, indicating that he shouldn’t go through with the plan. Barry, crying conflicted, bitter tears, waits for everyone to clear out and simply sits with his mother in her final moments, telling her everyone is fine and he loves her.

 

As Thawne gets ready to take his capsule through the wormhole, Barry flies out and shatters the vehicle into pieces. Thawne, clearly shocked and outraged, shouts, “You didn’t save her? You could have had the life you wanted. You could have had everything you ever wanted.”

 

To which Barry very admirably declares, “I already do.”

 

Having realized that he neither wanted nor had the right to change the world for his own purposes, he decided to come back and let the chips fall where they may. As he and Thawne have it out, fighting up and down the walls of the accelerator chamber, Barry appears to be outmatched. Thawne holds him by the throat and threatens the lives of everyone Barry cares about. As we wait for Barry to make his move, to do something to stop his worst enemy once and for all, we hear a gun shot. My first thought was that Joe simply shot Thawne while he was distracted, but it was so much more.

 

Instead, what we got was the surprise of the season. After spending the entire episode building up the mystical, science-defying nature of a coincidence, after Martin Stein explained the improbability of the one man that was the equal and opposite of the Flash getting stuck in the same time, the same city, as his great-great-great-great-grandfather, explaining that Eddie Thawne was an anomaly, a wild card, it all comes together in this moment. Eddie shot himself in the heart to stop his descendant, Eobard Thawne, from ever existing. His dying words, “There’s no such thing as a coincidence…it turns out I’m a hero after all.”

 

It is at this moment that a blackhole begins to form in STAR Labs that quickly expands over all of Central City. Martin Stein, earlier in the episode, indicated that there was the risk of a singularity in this time travel experiment, but the wormhole is closed in time. Caitlin and Ronnie seem surprised that the blackhole formed, but it seems more likely that the hole formed in response to a major time paradox, what Doc Brown always called one of those “things that could destroy the universe.” Considering that this segment of space-time was already weakened, it is no surprise that ending an entire history of people that led to the birth of Eobard Thawne, not to mention eradicating his history with the team in this past year, caused a tear in the space-time continuum. Imagine space-time like bullet proof glass. It can take a beating, but if the wormhole was a chip in that glass, then erasing the Thawnes from the timeline was a bomb. Maybe the glass could have withstood that bomb under other circumstances, but there was that chip, that tiny flaw in that certain spot and that’s all that it took to bring everything shattering down around them.

 

As the singularity forms over the city, all seems pretty much lost. We do get a couple of other last minute surprises, however. Ciara Renee, the actress cast in the role of Hawkgirl in “Legends of Tomorrow” is on the scene, looking up at the blackhole beginning to take shape. As the crowd of onlookers gazes up at this new threat, Martin Stein explains that the accretion disc had begun taking form, which is basically a ring of debris caught in the gravitational pull of the singularity. Everyone is thinking this is the end, but Barry just sees a ring of floating debris as something he can run on. “It’s just like the tornado,” he explains, “only bigger and upside down.” The plan to save the world? Run really fast in the opposite direction of the blackhole’s rotation and keep your fingers crossed.

 

Barry runs into the singularity and that is pretty much where we have to leave him for the summer, but it raises a big question. If this singularity is a tear in space, wear does the hole lead? Where will Barry end up if he goes through it? Will we meet Hawkgirl through her somehow rescuing Barry? Could this hole in space-time introduce the show to DC’s famous Multiverse and could that be the meaning behind Jay Garrick’s Flash helmet flopping into our story? What else might come through and, more importantly, what crazy alternate universe cross-over adventures might be possible?

 

This season has had one of the most unique approaches to storytelling I have seen in a long time. The pilot appeared to give us too many answers, giving the feeling that it had almost rushed the ideas of the show by cramming them all into one debut. They spent the next half of the season taking away those answers by shrouding them, layer by layer, in more mystery. The back half of season one began to unravel the mysteries that had been so recently woven around our characters. With few mysteries left as of last week, this hole in the universe opens up the potential to give us all new impossible questions for next year. I find this idea to be very promising, especially when compared to the formula of Flash’s sister show, Arrow, which has a pattern of simply hitting Starling City with bigger and bigger threats every year and forcing our heroes to fail miserably in order to create drama. The Flash goes a different route by creating the drama from big questions rather than big calamity. There are so many new questions, but the last one I will ask in this article is this:

 

If Wells was erased from existence, how could he have done all the things he did this season? Whether you noticed it or not, this season ended on a modified Grandfather Paradox. If your great-great-great-etc. grandfather has to kill himself in order to keep you from killing everyone else, thus preventing your birth, then how could there have been anyone there to make him want to kill himself? The show didn’t say as much, but my instinct is to say that the universe, in order to purge the paradox, opened up a rip over the city and was simply going to delete the entire corrupted file, so to speak. Think about that until your head hurts and then stay tuned for Season 2.

The moment all hard-core Flash fans have been waiting for happened on the season finally, Barry Allen finally entered the ‘Speed Force’ giving him the ability to travel through time.

Now during the episode “Fast Enough” it was hard to make out everything that Barry was seeing…. as he was traveling that fast he tore a whole in space time. But worry not as Wild Jr. has taken the time to show it down to a quarter of its normal speed so you can get a better look at what Barry was seeing.

Check it out below and see for yourself:

Amazingly cool wasn’t it? Legends of Tomorrow, the Flash Museum, Killer Frost and even Barry in prison.

If you weren’t sure about everything you saw don’t worry as all should be explained in the next season.

Good news for fans of The Flash series and comics as series star Grant Gustin has announced that the next season of The Flash will explore the Multiverse and introduce other speedsters.

“What’s fun about this show is that there’s going to be multiple timelines as we move forward,” said Gustin. “I think we’re going to start showing Earth-One and Earth-Two in the near future. There will be kind of different dimensions going on.”

For all those only aware of the Flash though The CW series I should explain. The welcoming of the Multiverse will mean alternate timelines and realities being explored as the Flash does in the comics and animated movies. Earth 2, for example is the home of the DC’s golden age, WWII-era characters—including a speedster known as Jay Garrick.Flash_Jay_Garrick_0091

Now it’s time for one of them stories that just makes you feel proud to be part of the human race.

In North Carolina an off-duty Army captain performed as a true American Hero the other day as he rescued multiple people from the scene of a flaming car crash.

Army Captain Steve Voglezon, (Captain America for short) quickly came to the aid of William and Kathleen Thompson after their car burst into flames following a collision. Steve used a fire extinguisher to break multiple car windows to rescue them before it was too late and both survived

The scene was caught on tape and can been below in the ABC and GMA reports:

“I grabbed one of the fire extinguishers. I smashed out the back window and the driver-side window,” Voglezon tells GMA. “From there, I grabbed Mr. Thompson. I took him to a safe distance.”

After rescuing the first passenger, Voglezon immediately went back for the second.

“If I had not been a soldier, I wouldn’t know what to do,” he said. “The Army has helped a lot.”

At the time, Voglezon happened to be wearing a t-shirt featuring a fictional hero, Captain America. Just like Cap, Voglezon seems the picture of humility, and attributed the rescue to a team effort that included other bystanders.

“I was just at the right place at the right time,” he said. “We all bonded together to help save people’s lives.”

All three people involved in the crash are currently hospitalized.
