Generally speaking, I like the Marvel movies better, but I wind up giving all of them my money, and Wonder Woman was the only DC hero so far who fully embraced her destiny to be uncynically heroic.

No. I'm complaining that someone claimed Diana had to ability to speak every language on Earth (which the film itself didn't claim).

See, and we wonder why nerds have such a bad rep as basement-dwelling and lacking in social skills!!! What else can we ***** about? Hey, real amazons would NEVER wear lipstick! Her hair should NOT be that shade of brown. Her hair should not be brown, period. And a Wonder Woman without blue eyes???WTF!
Real Amazons would never wear lipstick. And they don't need deodorant either, because their sweat naturally smells like strawberries and roses. Everyone knows that.

Ditto.

The only DC-based movies I enjoy watching more than once have been The Dark Knight and Wonder Woman. Everything else they have released has ranged from bad to meh. At least their live action stuff. Many of their animated movies are excellent.

I want to love DC films though. I've seen quite a few honestly in theaters: Batman Forever (my first CBM in theaters), Batman & Robin, The Dark Knight, Green Lantern, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman V. Superman, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. I admit I've seen far more of Marvel movies in theaters (see spoiler tags) but I do love both. That said, in the latest version of the DC movies, I must say only Batman V. Superman was one I loved. Yes a "Marvel Troll" loved the first DC movie with both Batman and Superman in the same film and Wonder Woman in her first film. I also love The Flash on The CW more than any Marvel show whether on ABC or Netflix. I say this as I have not seen Legion on FX.
Spoiler
X-Men, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Ghost Rider, Iron Man,
Iron Man 2, X-Men: First Class, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers,
Iron Man 3, Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Doctor Strange, Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming

My kids still love FLASH and ARROW and LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, but those shows lost me. They're just too "CW" if you know what I mean. They're soap operas for tweens.

I liked Legion a lot, but it didn't really feel like a "Marvel" show. It was more like The X-Files meets The Exorcist meets The Fugitive. And no snarky Whedonesque bad dialogue!

I watch Flash (my wife likes it), and it's okay, but I totally understand what you mean by "too CW." Totally.

Also, I wanted to say that if someone can change my mind about something with good reasoning and good arguments... I welcome it.

I think that I can say this without Beretta deleting it, but what I said wasn't an ad-hominem attack.

Or being a God herself she knew already. Either way it's a comic book movie fiction!

She's a goddess with a little g. Super human but not omniscient.

That doesn't mean there are no rules. It just means the rules are different.
