  • Alternative Character Interpretation
    • Artemis: Did she think that being more assertive would be more attractive to the public and earn her fame? Or was she trying to change the way Wonder Woman was seen with her harsh attitude?
    • Diana: She wanted another amazon to see the perspective of being Wonder Woman in the first person, She wanted a battle mate, or both.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Artemis is easily the most, if not the most popular Amazon from Wonder Woman. A large group of fans even complained about that she has been underused. Heck, even her Wonder Woman persona has garnered a large group of fans on Deviantart.
    • Also, Diana. Mostly for the suit she was wearing during 90's storyline, which also got sizable number of fans on Deviantart.
  • Fanfic Fuel: There are a lot of fanfics related to Artemis being still Wonder Woman.
  • Ho Yay: When Hippolyta and Philippus go over the plans for the last part of the contest the setting is quite intimate, their conversation and posture makes them come off as flirting and Philippus is essentially wearing lingerie when she's never been seen outside of full concealing armor before. This particular hinted relationship eventually became canon in later continuities.
  • Iron Woobie: Diana, who despite losing her title and watching her fellow amazon die, was able to continue her life.
    • Artemis also conts, she was already rejected by society, and her heroic peers, and to put the cherry on top, she was murdered (and revived, by all means), but remained a loyal and legitimate heroine.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character
    • Artemis, Good Lord, Artemis, She was used mainly used to prove the dichotomy of the comics of the nineties and how she was different from Diana, there was a lot of potential to prove that she could have been a great successor of Wonder Woman, Then she was killed by a demon, though this would not last.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: A Story about another amazon having adventures as Wonder Woman and Diana being her partner/Battle guide could have been interesting.
    • Also Artemis as a member of the Justice League; sounds great in perspective, but then again, it did not end well.

How well does it match the trope?
