It’s not on the main ComicBookResources page, but I’m glad to see the Robot 6 blog has something to say about this. Newsarama hasn’t said anything about it yet. I will be very disappointed if the bigger outlets don’t pick this up.
Robot 6: Another casualty of DC’s New 52: Amanda Waller’s weight
Until Suicide Squad #1, by Adam Glass and Federico Dallocchio, Waller was one of the few prominent heavy-set characters in superhero comics. Rarer still, her weight wasn’t used for comic relief (like, say, Etta Candy in her earliest incarnations) or somehow connected to superpowers (as with Bouncing Boy, or Marvel’s Blob or Big Bertha). In a sea of ageless and impossibly thin and tall figures, Waller stood out as a squat, middle-aged force to be reckoned with.
Now, however, “the Wall” is young and svelte, like much of the DC Universe … and flashing a bit of New 52 cleavage.
Any other major comics outlets covering this?
