"It’s beautiful and a little bit strange. It made me think of you."
Superman/Clark Kent comparing Wonder Woman/Diana to an exotic, Kryptonian flower.
Well in the Timm verse, Batgirl, Zatanna, Lois ( yes even Lois) Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Catwoman in addition to Diana in the JL/U series were all depicted by that creative team as attracted to Batman. Heck even Amanda Waller was fangirling over him in the JL/U Epilogue episode. In other comics and verses we have Black Canary, Talia, Sasha Bordeaux, Orion’s wife Becca, Vicki Vale, Silver St Cloud, Jezebel Jet and more attracted to him.
One reason we read is because they personally did not like the SM/WW pairing ( which had way more development in the comics…Batman/Wonder Woman really was never a ship until the cartoon) They had likened Clark and Diana getting together as the cheerleader and the Captain of the football team getting together. Which in our opinion was a very short sighted assessment of both characters. Diana, the cheerleader? Really, what a weird analogy. Class president or head of the debate or sport team maybe. But Batman the most popular character and Bruce Timm’s favorite having all the ladies falling for him somehow made more sense apparently.
Diana flirting with Batman in that series seemed her main role and in our opinion it was done rather poorly. Diana did all the chasing and what was ironic became she actually became Batman’s “cheerleader”. Batman, meanwhile, was the moody badass who was smarter than everyone and for a human he bizarrely could move like a meta. Bruce Timm was on record to say they had little ideas what to do with her. She had little development when it came to her character progressing in comparison to Hawkgirl. She also never truly got to shine alongside the boys where it mattered. eg Destroyer. She was not even good enough to take on Darkseid. But Batman was there dodging omega beams. Compare Wonder Woman in that Justice League cartoon to the new Justice League War and see which Diana truly gets shown to be the equal of the guys.
In a nut shell, personal bias and not knowing what to really do with Wonder Woman.
