DISCUSSION

I know DC doesn't owe us any explanations (I mean, clearly they don't even owe us good narrative or characterisation), but was anything ever said why Amanda Waller was re-conceived as skinny, sexily clad, and out on the front lines, instead of her previous heavier, older, suit-clad behind the scenes badass mastermind?

Does the comic not need that role anymore? Is someone else filling it? Could they not have put someone else there (a new character, or someone they're not using, like Montoya (she's not popped up yet, has she? New 52 confuses me))?

What are, basically, the upsides of this change?
