I’m pretty sure the vast amount of complaints in this thread have been about the fact that H6 was not supposed to be a reboot, and IO were very clear about that. So this retconning is weird. And just bad writing overall.
I thought it was interesting how White mentioned that Diana’s character arc in the comic is very similar to another Christopher Sebela character – Callie Boudreau, who, according to White, completely changes her life and becomes a criminal after she realizes she has nothing left to lose. Seems like this is a writer’s pet trope. But it makes no sense for Diana’s character.
This whole, swallowed by darkness, I will avenge my parents with the badass skills my father taught me… it’s like Katia in the movie, not Diana. And Katia was a terrible, empty character.
Rule #1: A character does not have to be broken to make them interesting. Particularly not if your other lead character (47) is already broken.
