In another thread, I brought up the fact that the Silver Age Wonder Woman had a father and now I have to back that up. I went through Showcase Presents Wonder Woman Volumes 1-3 (The pain, the pain! Man was that repetitive stuff!! Not year to year but issue to issue!) Anyway after suffering through Mer-Boy, Bird-Boy and Mister Genie, these are my findings:
Therefore the Silver Age Wonder Woman had an actual father, presumably Prince Theno. However the Bronze Age reinstated her Golden Age origin of a clay statue brought to life by Aphrodite in answer to Hippolyta's prayers for a child. Of course they added another statue of darker clay that became Wonder Woman's "Black sister" Nubia in WW #204 (F'73) and #206 (Jl'73). She made two other appearance in Supergirl #9 (Ja'74) and Super Friends #25 (O'79) as the heroine of Africa.
All other later retellings of the Earth-One Wonder Woman mention neither her father nor Nubia.
YA, I think Dwayne Johnson & Kellan Lutz would be very unhappy with you.

Wonder Woman used to be incredibly popular. She was the only superhero besides Superman and Batman (I don't really count Green Arrow since he was appearing in six page stories in the back of somebody else's comic) that survived the end of the Golden Age until the Silver Age got going. I'm still trying to ignore the Superman dumps Lois for her. Major Trevor must be annoyed.
Other than Sorbo I think Hercules has always been depicted as a big dumb action hero. Like in Jason and the Argonauts where he steals from the gods, causing Talos to come to life and getting his buddy killed when the giant falls on him.
That makes me feel you did not see the two Hercules movies that came out last year.
I think Kellan Lutz would be very unhappy with a lot of people since I've heard his film was very unpopular. Neither looked very intelligent in the trailers.
