* MerchandiseDriven: In-universe, Themyscira Industries is funded by merchandise and toy sales. [[AsYouKnow Etta Candy even notes]] that Diana designed her outfit to look like an action figure for this reason.

* MerchandiseDriven: In-universe, Themyscira Industries is funded by merchandise and toy sales. [[AsYouKnow Etta Candy even notes]] that Diana designed her outfit to look like an action figure for this reason. This leads to a bizarre scene where she goes on a rant about a doll wearing said costume being objectifying, even though she had personally approved the design of the doll earlier (even her employees are mystified).

Since getting out, the pilot has been reviewed by numerous online critics, including a combined review by [[http://channelawesome.com/wonder-woman-2011-a-review/ Linkara, Film Brain, and Nash]], as well as [[http://sfdebris.com/videos/tv/wonderwoman.php Chuck Sonnenburg]] of ''Website/SFDebris'' and [[http://blip.tv/the-idiots-lantern/the-idiot-s-lantern-wonder-woman-2011-pilot-5587816 The Wire]] of ''WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern''. They were all quite horrified. The full pilot can be seen [[http://www.epicgeekdom.com/2014/05/22/wonder-woman-unaired-pilot/ HERE]].



-->'''Website/SFDebris''': Wonder Woman in this universe, literally, can do no wrong. She lives in a world where she could throw babies at war amputees and be called a hero.



-->'''SF Debris:''' You go there to your damn cat, watch a chick flick, and you mess about on Facebook. You don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend there, no kids, no elderly relatives, no job, no causes, no time with friends. That's not a normal life. It's a ''fucking treehouse''.



-->'''[[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash]]''': See, kids? Corruption and mendacity are okay if they work in ''your'' favor.
-->'''Website/SFDebris''': Ah. So when the government official connected to the bad guy upholds the law, that's bad. When the government official connected to the good guy ignores the law, that's good.



** WebSite/SFDebris explains in his review why this trope works for someone like Batman but not Wonder Woman:
--->'''[=SFDebris=]''': Batman exists in a world where crime is so rampant that ordinary people live in fear and the judicial system is powerless to curtail it. Wonder Woman's world is so squeaky clean, her number-one concern is somebody testing ''drugs'' with harmful side effects.



-->'''SF Debris:''' Obviously, if you're against being objectified, step one… is to have your likeness captured in an object.



-->'''Nash!Wonder Woman''': Laws are for poor people.



* TortureAlwaysWorks: How Wonder Woman learns the location of the Cale's lab. The Wire, in her review of the pilot, points out one of the key problems with this.
-->'''The Wire''': Another reason authorities cannot act on information extracted by torture is that it's famously unreliable. I'll let [[Series/BurnNotice Michael Westen]] explain…
-->'''Michael Westen''': Torture just gets you the fastest lie to make the pain stop.

-->'''[[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash]]''': You're trying to discuss the rule of law with a woman who just tortured a man in a hospital bed? The hospital bed '''she put him in'''? You might as well explain the Fibonacci sequence to a '''BULLFROG'''!!!

** Wonder Woman is concerned that her boyfriend might get targeted by her enemies if she were to have him in her life. Ignoring her SecretIdentity, she has a public identity as Diana Themiscira who is openly acknowledged as Wonder Woman, meaning that all her employees are public targets.

** Claiming someone engages in illegal activities without proof is called slander and could easily get someone sued. Wonder Woman calls a press conference to announce this, fully acknowledging her lack of proof, and yet suffers no consequences. She also admitted to the entire world that she has broken the law to stop a crime she can't even prove was committed.

** Claiming someone engages in illegal activities without proof is called slander and could easily get someone sued. Wonder Woman Woman, who's also publicly known to be the CEO of Themyscira Industries under the name Diana Themyscira, calls a press conference to announce this, fully acknowledging her lack of proof, and yet suffers no consequences. She also admitted to the entire world that she has broken the law to stop a crime she can't even prove was committed.



** One of Wonder Woman's many flaws in this show. She [[SoBeautifulItsACurse admonishes the fact she is being objectified]] then [[ScrewTheRulesImBeautiful tries to use her looks to get past a guard]]. She claims that Veronica's actions which risk her business is beyond reckless, all the while she accuses her on national TV without evidence (which is called Slander and she could sue Wonder Woman which is risking her corporation). She threatens to kill someone if that person does not do what she says then states she hates it when people threaten her. She is disgusted that the villain is using a person with political power for her own gain, then does it herself. What's worse is that [[ProtagonistCenteredMorality Wonder Woman is continually lauded for her behavior]], instead of treating it like it's a negative quality.

* [[PaintedOnPants Painted-on Pants (To Be Darkened)]]: The costume Wonder Woman wears in the opening has skin-tight blue pants, but in the final action scene she instead wears the classic version without them.[[note]]The "To Be Darkened" meme originates from an on-screen notice in the unfinished pilot indicating that Wonder Woman's pants were to be darkened in post-production, a possible response to negative reaction to early photos of the character's modified costume.[[/note]]

** Wonder Woman tells her business toady about how exploitative the doll made to look like her is and he protests. Now, Wonder Woman's refusal to be objectified wouldn't be a problem... if the doll wasn't a month away from shipping and she hadn't already given oral consent.

** However, even in her most RonTheDeathEater[[invoked]] interpretation, Wonder Woman averts this trope. Her business dealings aren't that shady and she's even willing to have her bottom line take a hit on moral concerns (though she seems more insane than corrupt since she approved of the designed then changed it at the drop of a hat after their company already sunk a lot of money into development). In a way, her corporate dealings are ''more'' on the level than some other superheroes, because unlike characters like Batman, she doesn't secretly appropriate company funds for her superheroing, her business openly does this. She's just a brutal, psychopathic, superpowered AntiHero who happens to be a corporate executive... [[NoBadgeNoProblem and doesn't ever have to face any sort of legal repercussions]] (just in ways that don't involve her leveraging her corporate power).

One actually ends up taking a bullet due to his stray shots. However, it's for naught and he ends up being impaled in the throat.
