Wonder Woman: "And you call yourself a Superman!"

Jim Lee and Frank Miller

Batman and Robin All Stars #5

DC Comics has renovated their superhero "family" storylines many times, which from the beginning have often dealt with the problems of their stable of superheroes getting along with each other. Often this was presented in the way a 1940s-50s family was apparently supposed to get along: some friction, but always a happy ending.

Even with the hoary storylines of recent memory (for example Infinite Crisis) there is still a certain glue that binds together the idea that these superheroes would naturally have an affinity for each other instead of an automatic repulsion akin to egomaniacs meeting.

In the Batman and Robin All Star series, Frank Miller tries to turn this surrogate family ideal of DC Comics onto its head, but in the end creates just an extreme version of the already existing paradigm of opinionated professionals putting up with each other. They ultimately coalesce when the chips are down, and would have sooner if it wasn't for an operatic need for combat on every level.

Miller's version of Wonder Woman takes Moulton's Amazonian ideal of an anti-male, brazen and self-righteous demigod (it's worth noting that Moulton was invested in that self-righteousness) being pushed outward in Miller's version and becoming one woman's pure emotional and physical frustration.

With an idealistic sense of justice amid Miller's world of corrupt police and government, certainly there would be enough anger and rage to turn Wonder Woman into a battling vigilante anyway, but Miller has the woman going into a whole other realm of anger (while raging crazily about having Batman's head cut off and presented to the 'authorities' as a gift, Miller's Wonder Woman declaring Bats a 'psychopath' begs the question of which one of any of these heroes isn't a psychopath?)

Incidentally, in this panel from the comics they're arguing over capturing Batman because his behavior has become a national problem - - which doesn't fit the original DC Comics model in which heroes performed vigilante acts within their home cities and it only created problems on the local state level at best (true, Superman eventually was off fighting the Nazis and talking to FDR but that was a unique episode.)

In Miller's world, superheroes have problems on a national level because there is always an insanely attentive, neo-fascist presence that won't mind its own business, primarily a governmental entity and its hand-maiden press. This difference from the Marvel Comics vision of government (especially as finalized by Chris Claremont with the X-Men) was of a prejudiced and small-minded government that operates out of fear and manipulates a gullible citizenry. Both viewpoints elevate the superhero as an individual who transcends society. (See entire page from Batman and Robin All Star enlarged here)
