Wonder Woman is a weird character with a weird origin story and weird powers. She worked in a cheesier time, but for her to work now, I think her backstory would have to seriously be re-designed. Daughter of the Gods? Invisible plane? Magic lasso that makes you tell the truth? Just too goofy. I can barely suspend my disbelief when she pops up in cartoons anymore.
I guess the counter-argument would be Thor.
Totally, and Marvel did an awesome job with Thor, so it's certainly not impossible for Wonder Woman to work as well.
Honestly, it's mostly the invisible plane that I can't get past. Get rid of that, and I'd be way more okay with the character.
