The Zeus thing is a big deal. Where she was modeled by her mother longing for a child and granted life by the gods (plural, female gods included), everything special about her now comes from who her father is. That takes a whole lot of the empowerement of the character away. The animated movie included the clay origin, and they needed about a minute of film to do that. What's the big deal?! I don't remember anybody complaining about how that was handled, or that it was hard to understand, or anything like that. Actually, most of the criticism on the clay origin has only come after Azzerallo screwed with it. But even then, why adress any origin at all?! The Lynda Carter series (at least the first season, which is all I've seen of it so far) and the "Justice League" cartoon didn't go further than "She's the princess of the Amazons", and that was absolutely fine.
