April 17, 2012 8:45 pm Actually Wally the problem doesn't still exist. It has been demonstrably shown that any wage gap that currently exists in the western world is not caused by unfair pay systems but is instead caused by descisions women make about what they want out of employment. In fact the only way it is possible at all to say there is a wage gap is if you employee an "arithmetic mean" or "arithmetic average" rather then looking at it on a case by case basis. How this works is you take census data from all women in the United Startes for instance & then figure out there average pay, in comparrison to men. Of course women are going to come up with a lower pay on average if you utilise that method, as some women seek to stay home and raise a family, while men rarely have that option. Without using the arithmetic mean, the hypothesis that women get paid less, is not supported by the maths. An using the arithmetic mean, is using the wrong maths to determine the outcome. All the rest of the difference is made up by what choices women make over the choices men make, when it comes down to employement. If your interested in the topic i suggest picking up a copy of "Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap -- and What Women Can Do About It" by Warren Farrell. Its the only book on the subject worth reading as its the only one that goes in depth to actually discover why it is so (heck he originally planned on writing it to prove the pay gap, but found that his initial premise was wrong)

November 21, 2011 5:31 am "I can understand feminists being upset." Of course you can, its a day that ends in the letter Y & thats always been enough for feminists to be angry in the past. But the fact is, it doesn't matter how many feminists are angry, because they weren't purchasing this book to start with. This change to Wonder woman is for the better, maybe now we'll have an internally consistent Wonder Woman. As for har13quin's statement that giving Diana a father, particularly such a bad one as Zeus, Azarello makes her more of a feminist character, not less, is of course nonsense. Wonder Woman is not a feminist character, she's just a character... Gynostar; thats a feminist character, but Wonder Woman is most assuredly not.
November 20, 2011 7:08 am I thought i'd take a second to give you the actual answer to why this got cancelled and other books with lower sales didn't: TRAJECTORY. Over the last 11 issues, X-23's numbers dropped by 4,000 sales units, with little likelyhood that the trend will turn around. While other titles have lower sales, they are being kept around because they are stable.
