From WikiGogh and Millay wanted to strip Superman down to his "bare essence", and explore the reasons behind Clark Kent becoming Superman.They felt the fact they were not comic book fans played into their favor; not being familiar with the universe would allow them an unbiased approach to the series. However, this did not keep them from learning about the characters, as they both did research on the comics and picked and rearranged what they liked. They returned and pitched their idea to both The WB and FOX on the same day. A bidding war ensued between FOX and The WB; the latter won out with a commitment of thirteen episodes to start. All I am saying is that Hollywood can & usually does take liberties with recreations of established stories comics or otherwise. With a producer like David E. Kelly it is entirely possible to see a wonder woman different from the comic book. Nothing is ever written in stone. If I am not mistaken wasn't there a Superboy comic? That goes against the Smallville premise altogether. And Smallville had good ratings for the WB then CW. To think that a series based on a comic book would only have comic book geeks watching is a bit closed minded. I highly doubt the percentage of Nielsen families that are comic book geeks would have an impact. Again I agree that WW should be an amazon type and definitely brunet. That is what hair dye is for. But I am a realist and when it comes to Hollywood anything is possible.
