and implore people to regard them as my own teachers did, as a gateway to the original canon and not as an assault on the integrity of this stack.

Every question on superheroes with origins in mythology represents a mind interested in mythology, and our job here should be to educate.

just my 2 cents

    mythology.stackexchange.com/search?q=thor <== 1924 results That said questions related to the Thor movies represent a ridiculously vast minority... Questions related to movie are incredibly low mythology.stackexchange.com/search?q=movie <== 15 results. questions related to Marvel, incredibly low mythology.stackexchange.com/search?q=marvel <== 8 results. Comics? mythology.stackexchange.com/search?q=comics <== 5. I would not expect a lot of question related to Wonder Woman. – Gibet Jun 7 '17 at 8:13
  • @Gibet thanks for digging up the stats. Guess you were correct (also, I have not been hearing good reports on the film itself.) It's still worth pointing out that there is an "internet traffic" component to Stack, and the expansion to more stacks in recent years is, in part, to aggregate traffic and drive up the ranking of the overall site. Question based on popular modern medium are going to draw more traffic to Stack Mythology than scholarly questions, thus superhero questions are quite valuable for us. – DukeZhou Jun 7 '17 at 15:54
  • Well "historically speaking" she is wearing a fairly nice "hoplite suit". Breastplate, leather strap skirt, greaves, vambraces, large rounded shield and gardless sword (well medievalish too long and straight for Greeks). And as Gal Gabot is Israeli, she comes with a natural little cool accent. That is a HUGE improvement toward the briefs fighterish-gay pridish as depicted in 300... So there is even fine analysis to do on the pure historical side... – Gibet Jun 8 '17 at 7:15
