Wonder Woman is one of the most popular heroines in the comic book world; born Princess Diana of the immortal Amazons from Greek mythology is born when her mother Hippolyta forms her from clay and she is given life by the gods.

Wonder Woman has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986. Her depiction as a heroine fighting for justice, love, peace, and sexual equality has led to Wonder Woman being widely considered a feminist icon. In fact, Wonder Woman became the face of the feminist movement when Gloria Steinem featured the superhero on the July 1972 debut issue of Ms. Magazine.

Wonder Woman came to this land and to comic books with superhuman strength and speed, trademark bulletproof bracelets, the Golden Lasso of Truth and superior combat and battle skills. And, while many writers have depicted Diana in different personalities, what has remained constant is her ability to feel compassion and give love without discrimination, in my opinion this is Wonder Women’s strongest power.
The modern comic book version of the character has been depicted as a warrior, capable of lethal and fatal actions when left with no other alternative. A primary example of this is when she killed Maxwell Lord in order to save Superman's life. Wonder Woman's personality and tone wavers between that of a highly trained and conditioned warrior, an extremely compassionate and calm Ambassador, and sometimes also as a naive and innocent person.
The New 52 comic book version of the character has been portrayed to be a younger, more headstrong, loving, fierce and willful person. Stated in a video interview with DC Comics writer, Brian Azzarello they're building a very "confident", "impulsive" and "good-hearted" character in her. He referred to her trait of feeling compassion as both her strength and weakness. You can still find New 52 comic books sold online at White Dragon Comics.
Over the years comic books have portrayed Wonder Woman occasionally using a variety of additional weaponry in formal battle, such as ceremonial golden armor with golden wings, chest-plate, and golden helmet in the shape of an eagle's head. In current comic books, she possesses a magical sword forged by Hephaestus that is sharp enough to cut the electrons off an atom. In the Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age comic books portrayals of Wonder Woman she operated an Invisible plane that could be controlled by mental command via her Tiara. Intrigued?
