WONDER WOMAN - "The Amazing Amazon"

BATMAN
 

WHY SHE'S COOL

Wonder Woman is the greatest of all female superheroes and easily ranks in the top ten of greatest superheroes ever. She's an Amazon Princess with superpowers that rival Superman's. While she's a fully trained Amazon warrior, she is also the most compassionate of all the superheroes.

Wonder Woman is one of those characters gets constantly rewritten in comicbooks. It's often hard to keep up with all the changes. But in broad strokes, she has always been the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, leader of the mythological Amazons. Whether or not she was born from clay or has a father is highly debated these days. Still, she grew up on the hidden paradise island called, Themyscira. When the Greek Gods demanded an Amazon champion to send into “man's world”, a contest was held to see who was the best. Although forbidden to enter by her mother, Princess Diana, enter and won, becoming Wonder Woman. Send to 'man's world' to save it from itself, she quickly became a superhero and a founding member of the Justice League.

Gifted by the Greek Gods, Wonder Woman is second only to Superman in strength, endurance and speed. More recently, she has been given the power to fly. She also has an invincible bracelets, an invisible plane (everything in the plane is invisible too) and an unbreakable golden lasso that forces people ensnared by it, to obey her (like tell the truth). Recently, she has started carrying a magical sword and shield.

Traditionally, Wonder Woman has used the secret identity of Diana Princess, to live a normal life. She often works for the United Nations or the United States government, with Colonel Steve Trevor, who is in love with her. Often her best friend is Etta Candy, known for her unbridled spirit and sense of humor.
