Wonder Woman

You guys. Holy smokes. YOU HAVE GOT TO START WATCHING THESE DC UNIVERSE MOVIES! They are AMAZING! Lauren Montgomery’s Wonder Woman (2009) is so far definitely my favorite, but that may have something to do with the fact that, being the only true female superhero, Wonder Woman has always been my favorite. Mostly? BECAUSE SHE’S AWESOME.

Like many of you, I long anticipated the Joss Whedon-helmed Wonder Woman live action movie that would presumably melt my face and will almost definitely never happen. Naturally, even the most obscure male superheroes get huge summer blockbuster releases and multiple sequels, but one of the most important comic book superheroes of all time, a woman, can’t get her name up on a single marquee. Still and all, this itty bitty hour-plus cartoon makes for quite a satisfying substitution, let me tell you. It’s fantastic!

Wow. This Movie! Is So! Awesome!!!

Okay, so! Justice League: The New Frontier is based on the comic book series DC: The New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke, who served as story and visual consultant here. AND IT’S SO GOOD! It’s spirited and gritty and fierce and funny and just utterly delicious. It’s got about a hundred different storylines so I’m going to try to be as brief as possible with the recapping before getting to the awesome. Which, granted, is everything.
