This past weekend I had my birthday party, and wanted some decorations, as one does. So I visit my local Tar-zhay, and decide on a Disney Princess/Superhero theme because I'm an adult and if I want Belle canoodling with Batman or Captain America then by God, I shall do so. Except for one very disappointing thing:

WONDER WOMAN IS MISSING! They put Green Lantern in her place. And for the sticker set where they needed another character they put AQUAMAN. Now, nothing is particularly wrong with those characters, but if I'm portraying the JL on some merchandise Wonder Freaking Woman needs to be there! She's a pretty integral part of the Justice League, ya know.

So, DC lost that battle. I wasn't putting some Wonder Woman-less Justice League party decorations up. That would be a lie.

So I decided on some Avengers themed plates that at least had Black Widow on them. But she wasn't on all of the party set, mind you, just some. Marvel: Marginally Better than DC at Some Things Since 2005!

Seriously, though, Wonder Woman on JL stuff just doesn't make sense and it's quite insulting.
