Wonder Woman – The immortal Princess Diana of the Amazons, daughter of Queen Hippolyta, and given power by Gods to fight against the evil that plagues this world. She is not only one of the most famous heroine of all time but has been a feminists icon since her debut in 1941. With her beauty, brains, and brawn Diana enters the world of hero, equal, in some cases better, to any man and a symbol for every woman. Her heroic journey all began when the army pilot Steve Trevor crash landed on the secluded shores of Themyscira; this caused the events that led Diana to enter rest of the world and make her people known. The place she entered though was not what she expected, with things like war, hate, discrimination, there was a lot for Diana to learn. But she wasn’t intimidated and with the help of her superhuman strength and speed, not to mention magic gauntlets and the Lasso of Truth, Wonder Woman was born and not only was she a force against evil but she is also an advocate for peace.
Beyond being my all time favorite superhero, possibly tied with Superman, she was probably the first woman I idolized for her character. I feel like she has always represented a more black and white vision of what is good and evil. Unlike so many other heroes her journey wasn’t triggered by some tragic event but rather her desire to save a world that she didn’t really know but knew she had to save. She was born to fight against evil but she did more that, she enter our world, the world of man, and became a symbol of strength and love
More than anything I love what Wonder Woman stands for. Her biggest issues have always been about peace and love and equal and those are some of the most amazing things to admire. Both as Wonder Woman and Diana Prince, she is part of our world with a desire to make it better. She was one of the first characters that represented a woman in a man’s world but made it her own. Wonder Woman is more than icon she is a role model, she’s something to strike for and recognize and that’s why love her character so much.
