Who is… Wonder Woman

by AlexDecember 24, 2016

Wonder Woman is probably the most famous female heroine or even character, since I doubt any other character has sold as much merchandise, been in the cover of that many magazines and t-shirts, so it is a safe thing to say that Wonder Woman is the most popular female character there is.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman has been the definition of a triple threat of brains, beauty and brawn since her debut in the comic books in 1941 on All Star Comics #8. She is also a founding member of the Justice League, an incredible amazonian warrior and the princess of her homeland, the island of Themyscira.

Wonder Woman has had a series of origin stories through the years but the original states that she was sculpted from clay by her mother Queen Hippolyta and given life by Athena and receiving superhuman powers from the Greek gods as a gift. Princess Diana was over 5,000 years by the time she made first contact with “man’s world’ The Amazonians were created to protect “man’s world” but they ultimately abandoned this mission.

Princess Diana’s life changes when an allied pilot crash lands on the island of Themyscira and Diana earns the right to escort this pilot to the outside world where he belongs, once in the outside world Diana’s mission is to promote the peace and be an ambassador to her people in this “new world”. Diana is torn between her mission to promote peace and her own warrior upbringing, she fights evil while hoping to unlock the potential of a humanity that seems to have a desire to destroy itself.

Wonder Woman has fought any number of enemies from axis soldier, to supervillains to godly entities from the Greek mythology. She is also a founding member of the Justice League and possess and amazing range of abilities and equipment that make her capable to incredible feats. Diana has access to an arsenal of powerful god forged weapons that give her an edge in battle, but her most iconic equipment are her indestructible bracelets and her lasso of truth.

Diana has a wide range of special abilities that give her an edge in times of conflict, she possess superhuman strength and agility, invulnerability, she is capable of flight and a healing factor on top of having combat expertise and being a gifted strategist.
