*** And now she's getting [[http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2015/03/WW-Cv41-c43ae.jpg yet another costume change]] after ''Convergence''. While most like that she looks more like a warrior, many feel that it went too far in the opposite direction, with her looking less like a superhero and more like some kind of gladiator. The spiked gauntlets are especially divisive, as it seems to indicate that DC will be continuing with the unpopular depiction of Wonder Woman as casually killing villains. Should be noted that her [[http://www.tencentticker.com/projectrooftop/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/WonderWoman.jpg more armored look in Azzarello's run]] has been much better recived.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: Wonder Woman working at fast food restaurant subplot from William Messner-Loebs's run. It is ridiculous and circumstances leading to it make no sense, yet many find it charming and fun, mostly for just how seriously Diana takes her job.
-->'''Wonder Woman:''' I am ''unworthy'' to work at Taco Whiz.\\

** With exceptions of Greg Rucka's and George Perez's runs, which are universaly beloved and Merdith's Finch's and all Wonder Woman runs in her third volume prior to Gail Simone's, which are generally disliked, all runs on Wonder Woman fall under this as a whole.

* WTHCastingAgency: In the episode "The Pied Piper", casting comedic nebbish Martin Mull to play a flamboyant rock star.

!!Examples from Wonder Woman in [[WesternAnimation/WonderWoman the 2009 DTV Animated Movie]]
* LesYay: Inevitable given the source material, but practically everyone seems to assume that Artemis is a lesbian in this version.
* MagnificentBastard: ''Hades'', dear Lord Hades. He initially refused to remove Ares' shackles, claiming that Zeus had asked him not to. What he neglected to mention was that [[spoiler: Zeus asked him not to because he foresaw that it would get Ares killed.]]
--> '''Hades to Ares [[spoiler:when he appears in the Underworld after his death]]''': [[spoiler:A tragedy. A terrible terrible tragedy. How it weighs on my heart to see you like this. When my brother asked me not to remove your bands he said I was only dooming you, that he could not save you from yourself yet again. Perhaps, I should have listened.]]
* {{Narm}}: Alexa [[spoiler:as a zombie]] finally decides to fight. Awesome! Oh, no. Wait. [[spoiler:Ares simply returns all the Amazon zombies to death ten seconds later]].
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: When this film was released, many felt it was too violent for its PG-13 rating (and this is only after it was edited in preproduction down from an R rating). But after such other DC Animated Features like ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox'', each one even more violent and gruesome than ''Wonder Woman'' (and still under a PG-13!), the complaints are looking pretty passé.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Men are not always the cause of problems in the world and Amazons secluding themselves from the outside world is the opposite of everything they stand for. And in the case of Persephone, the need for a relationship with a man could make them desperate enough for them to turn on their sisters.
* {{Squick}}: Hippolyta and Ares have a child, Thrax. In the comics and the myths, Ares is Hippolyta's father...
** To add even more brain bleach Hippolyta implied that the pregnancy was forced upon her.....let that sink in.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: Hippolyta and her Amazons battle to defeat the god of war's forces... in front of TheVietnamWar Memorial (which fortunately [[TooSoon did not]] suffer MonumentalDamage).

* ContinuityPorn: Phil Jimenez's run. This causes quite a BrokenBase, because while some argue this makes his stories hard to follow and brings unpopular plot elements most fans would prefer to forget, others point out this makes one of the very few writer who actually tried to build upon what other writers have done before him and follow Perez's vision, instead of simply ignoring it and re-doing everything from scratch.
