So apparently there are some comics fans who are trying to impose comics canon on Wonder Woman movieverse fans (as seen on Tumblr), and having been there oh so many years ago in the position of a movieverse-only fan, if you are tempted to say, "but in the comics...", my advice is, to quote Captain America: "son, just don't."
The movies are not the comics! They were not the same in 2000 with the first X-Men movie. They were not the same with Iron Man or Captain America or Age of Ultron or Civil War. They are not the same with Wonder Woman (I can't speak to the other DCU movies I haven't seen, but Jonathan Kent in Man of Steel was sure as shit not the Jonathan Kent from the comics, in the worst way possible).
There's a back button/exit button on every screen. Learn to use it if you can't handle the idea of multiple versions of canon that are not the same*. (Though how any (superhero) comics
fan can possibly cling to some notion of strict canonicity is beyond my understanding - it was in 2000 and it remains even more so now that I've actually read superhero comics! - because even within the published comics there are multiple universes, alternate realities, reboots and rebirths, and even the published writers/artists pick and choose from that broad swath of material. And that's before even getting into TV/film/video game/animated adaptations! So don't even. I mean, you're not going to bitch at the people who write Ezra Miller movie Flash for not writing Grant Gustin TV Flash, are you? Then stfu.)
*I can see being annoyed when movie characterization etc. invades the comics tag on AO3 (or v.v.), but that's just an inevitable side effect of people trying to grab the widest possible reading audience.
This makes me just as angry now as it did seventeen(!!!) years ago. I thought maybe the MCU blowing up to be a huge and non-comics-corresponding fandom would put a stop to it, but I guess not.

I imagine this show will play better once you can view it all at once, because it is glacially slow
in parts, and not particularly emotionally evocative, but beautifully rendered.
I posted a story yesterday! Woo, the streak is intact!You Can't Front on That
Star Wars; Darth Vader, Obi-Wan, Luke; AU; g; 3,960 wordsWhen he hears Kenobi's voice again months after killing him, Vader wonders if perhaps he's begun to go mad.silveronthetree
and I have talked more than once about all the stories where Luke and Vader meet up and have adventures together, or Vader turns from the dark side earlier than in canon, and yet how those stories almost never have Force ghost!Obi-Wan turn up to commentate (or at least harass Vader for his terrible life choices most specifically regarding his children), and how much we wanted that. And we were tossing around the things they would talk about, and so this story happened. I definitely enjoyed writing it, and I'm glad people are enjoying reading it. <3
And now work has interrupted repeatedly, so I'm going to hit post. Sigh.
