W is for Wonder Woman

Day 23 - A to Z Challenge - "W"

W is for Wonder Woman
Character Facts:
Abilities/Powers: Super Strength, Invulnerability, Flight, Combat Skill, Combat Strategy, Superhuman Agility, Healing Factor, Magic Weaponry
Occupation: Amazon Princess
Real Name/Secret Identity: Diana Prince

Origin Story:
Princess Diana of Themyscira (Wonder Woman) is a demigod and warrior princess of the Amazons.  She received her superhuman powers as a blessing from Olympian goddesses and her Amazonian training has gifted her with a range of exceptional skills/supernatural abilities.  She also possesses an arsenal of weapons, like the "Lasso of Truth", indestructible bracelets and tiara (which can be a lethal projectile).

Wonder Woman won the right to return Steve Trevor (a US intelligence officer) back to "Man's World", after his plane had crashed on the Amazons' homeland.  She stays in this new world, to help fight crime and evil.
Wonder Woman eventually joins the Justice League.

Interesting Tidbits:
-Wonder Woman made her first comic book appearance in December of 1941.
-Diana's mother is Hippolyta.
-Steve Trevor is often a love interest for Wonder Woman.

My Observations:
I hadn't actually seen any shows featuring Wonder Woman, until recently. (Kinda surprised I never caught any reruns of the Lynda Carter series...)
I did really like the character in the animated Justice League series.
She is a bit abrasive at times, but I quite like her personality and convictions. (I also liked the relationship that formed between her and Batman.  I think that would be a really interesting pair.)
I also loved the Greek mythology stories that would appear from time to time...
...Greek mythology has always been a hobby of mine. (Too bad I don't remember more of it now.)


  1. Oh yes, I remember watching the Lynda Carter series on TV :)

    1. I wish they would show reruns of the show; I would love to watch them.

    2. I really wish she had a different outfit. That sounds so rude. However, I did not know her background - and I have to rethink this -because Mythology is very cool

  2. I too watched the Lynda Carter series as a young girl and it was awful! So badly scripted and acted, yet also addictive. But isn't that the same for all 70s TV programmes?! Only three days to go! :)

  3. I love reading these posts! Great stitching and so informative!
