DC just hired the wrong woman to write Wonder Woman

It may be a great idea to have a woman assigned to script Wonder Woman. Mindy Newell once did some work on WW in the last issues of the pre-Crisis volume. But Dan DiDio, again overshadowing EIC Bob Harras, has just made one of the most lugubrious choices for a scribe, G. Willow Wilson, who's as bad a choice for a writer as they come:
Writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Cary Nord are taking over DC Comics' Wonder Woman ongoing with November 14's Wonder Woman #58. Their first storyline, "The Just War," begins with Wonder Woman going to save Steve Trvor after his military unit come up missing in action while inside a war-torn Eastern European country; while investigating, Diana finds Ares.

"When Steve Trevor’s unit goes missing in an Eastern European country torn by revolution, Wonder Woman immediately flies across the globe to help him - only to slam into the brick wall that is Ares, the God of War, who’s taken a strange interest in this conflict," reads DC's description of the arc. "But why is Ares acting so strange? Has he turned over a new leaf? Does Wonder Woman have a chance to redeem him? And just as important...if Ares has returned to Earth, then what happened to the supposedly unbreachable prison built to contain him—Wonder Woman’s homeland, Themyscira?"

DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio descibes Wilson's hiring as "an incredible opportunity" for the publisher, saying DC "couldn't be more excited.

“Keeping our core audience engaged requires having the best storytellers around, and she’s definitely a great addition to our current list of writing talent," DiDio said.
Well I think this says all we need to know about where he stands on her own leftist politics...and religion. She already pushed enough Islamic propaganda into the Muslim Ms. Marvel series, so we can only wonder what she has in store for this tale? I get the feeling it's supposed to be a metaphor for the Bosnia vs. Serbia war, which happens to have been started by Bosnian Muslims themselves. And are we supposed to believe Ares started such a war, not the Religion of Peace itself? Either way, it doesn't take much to figure Wilson's planned story, metaphorical or not, won't be very appealing.

Of all the defeatist steps DC could've taken, this has to be one of the worst. To give Bill Marston's famous Amazon fighter to somebody as awful as Wilson is one of the biggest slaps in the face possible, and just another reason why DiDio's bad news for the company.
