@powerwoman: Nope, she doesn't. It's like she's not quite up there with the other powerhouses while she should be. But.. i have not read all her 52 appearances so I can be mistaken.

Well she didn't used to (used the wrist band deflection technique), but she'll probably have eye-lasers and telepathy before too long.. oh DC

Originally no. Originally sharp objects (also bullets I guess) were her weakness and she had to deflect them with her bracelets. Yet she was able to take a huge amount of punishment anyway, probably because of the whole made out of Earth theme. You can punch the Earth and it takes the shot, but stab it with a knife and the knife goes through it like it's nothing.

@deaditegonzo: wonder woman isn't more inconsistent than most of the other heros,everyone is victim of bad writting sometimes,but we have enough consistent feats to know how powerful she is,in the past,she was concistent at least 70% of the time,now she hasn't had inconsitencies yet,the only problem is the bulletproof thing,she should be bulletproof,the bracelets can still be used in many situations,she doesn't have to be vulnerable against piercing weapons to have an excuse to use the bracelets.

@aiden_cross: well pre 52 wonder woman was shown as a big powerhouse,and even though she was victim of bad writting sometimes,like every character,she was still showing high feats with enoug consistent to prove that she was a real powerhouse,now we still have to wait to see her full power,the problem is that it's taking forever for new 52 wonder woman to show her full power,we should know the full extention of her power by now,the development is taking too long.

She's not bulletproof (as proven already).

I think she would be extremely injured or dead at a full heat vision blast. It's right there in the scan Gambler posted.

@gokuwarrior: I want to see wonder woman each blow out a planet in fight

that not exaggerate,wonder woman at least in the superman strength level,who can easily lift earth weight,far stronger than pre-52 superman,and new 52 wonder woman has more power,like she bracelets,a really powerful evil charater to fight with wonder woman that we need,just hope DC not like pre-crisis,creater a lot of street characters even can match PC superman or beat him

Yeah, I wondered that too when I read that Injustice issue. As far as i know, she isn't impenetrable like Superman. She just deflects the bullets with the bracelets.

I guess that makes a lot of sense. But in New 52, she's Zeus blood daughter, so I guess that's nullified now.

Take that with a grain of salt, almost every heavy hitter is portrayed as such in their comics.. I think Fate, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Captain Atom, FireStorm (potential - he might lose in a fight) are a few that have been consistently listed specifically above Superman (on the forums) not to mention Prep-batman takes the universe ....

Edit: Current versions though, most are not as impressive and Captain Atom might have been weakened in his last battle with FireStorm, but prior he was becoming godly and had Flashes level of Speed. And MMH is still in question.

For answering this thread's question, I will present #7 of the FAQ section of my "Who is WW?" manuscript Bonus:

#7. Why use bracelets when body armor would be easier?---or why not just make her impervious to bullets like Superman?

Dr. Marston intended to create an alluring feminine superhero with all the strength of a Superman, not the invulnerability of one...nor the other powers of one.

Her vulnerabilities are an important part of her mythos...although she does have a certain level of resistance greater than mortals, her vulnerability to things varies with what kind of thing & how far along in her self development she is. Back in the day, Dr. Marston knew that Superman's invulnerability made for lack of dramatic stories since he's so perfect, and that to make WW imperfect & allow her some vulnerabilities would open the door to some interesting dramas that would keep fans coming back for more--ones where he could convey his sexual-psychological theories and messages by showing first, that despite her amazing abilities she is not an immortal goddess, and secondly, how she works through her vulnerabilities & wins in the end despite them.

But he doesn't leave her completely defenseless. As variably vulnerable or not her flesh may be, her magic Bracelets Of Submission are constantly indestructible. In-story perspective, they serve both as defensive tools against the various murderous weapons of Man's World, and to bind the Amazons to Aphrodite while never submitting to men, sexually or otherwise, by reminding them of their past enslavement by the Greeks. It also protects them from any evil within. Allegory-wise, they stem from Dr. Marston's idea that a woman biggest weakness (& strength) are her emotions, which if out of control causes them to not think, lose their personal power & become “enslaved” to men, naturally becoming submissive. And that if they were to stay disciplined by controlling their emotions & devoting themselves to the virtues of Love, understanding, tenderness, strength of altruism, etc, then they'd retain their personal power & protect them from the bad influences of an appetitively driven world. So in using her bracelets to deflect bullets & other wicked weapons, Dr. Marston was conveying an allegory of real world women using love-discipline to deflect those bad influences.

And the use of body armor would take away from that symbolism (not to mention, in-story perspective, that it'd limit her reach in defending others from bullets), in that it also lacks the emotions control element that makes up the bracelet formula. Only by having control of their emotions can Amazons accurately deflect all the bullets that come at them. Its this emotional control Dr. Marston was trying to emphasize which symbolize a woman's triumph over her one weakness that sabotages all her strengths.

Furthermore, the bracelets are a defensive tool that very much represents the feminine. That is, they stop murderous weapons by deflecting rather than going offensive, which would be masculine...Whatever you send their way could come back to you, so be wise all you villains of the world! Its also why they don't carry Man's World firearms instead. Dr. Marston was trying to promote the wonders of feminine ways. And so the bracelets could also be construed as symbolic of the moon which reflects the sun, which is why the truest representative color of the bracelets is silver...even tho Dr. Marston has mistakenly said/portrayed them as either black or bronze; something I believe he would've corrected had he lived today.

7b* Bracelets: No matter how indestructible those bracelets are, how the heck can she deflect high powered projectiles and not be knocked backwards by the force, and not be bruised by the impact on her wrists?!?

They're magic bracelets...enchanted by Aphrodite. I'm sure they magically absorb the forceful impact, as well as having a magical anti-ricocheting property to them. Just as well, she's super strong

#83 Posted by colonyofcells (2038 posts) - - Show Bio

My guess is Wonder Woman will continue to gain powers and she will always be at least as powerful as Superman. For New 52, my impression is Wonder Woman is now more powerful than Superman since Superman still has lots of weaknesses. Wonder Woman used to have weaknesses in the golden age, silver age and bronze age. Both Superman and Wonder Woman have gained powers over the years to keep up with human technology.

@brettjett:

let' make it shorter,superman is super durable,he has a vulnerability to magic but he is durable against everything else,the same with wonder woman,she is super durable,she has a vulnerability to piercing weapons but she is super durable against everything else,so the bottom line is,every hero must have a vulnerable point,a weakness,magic for superman,piercing weapons for womnder woman,but i think her vulnerability to piercing weapons should dusappear.

@pokeysteve:she can take a full blast of hit vision,she has done many times before,of curse it can hurt her,but one full blast can't kill her,she can take a lot of them without going down,she has proven to be super durable against everything except piercing weapons,and her weakness against piercing weapons should dissapear.

I don't think she's ever been shown to take a full blast of his heat vision. He rarely uses heavy blasts to begin with. I agree her weakness to piercing weapons should go. Then again without it, she'd be even more formidable.

#94 Posted by TAneT62 (1060 posts) - - Show Bio

Her weakness to sharp objects should go, but shouldn't. It's a weakness a normal human has, making her feel a lot less formidable. She is amazingly durable against blunt force, energy attacks and so on so forth, but the piercing pandemonium feels like a lost causeeeeeeeeee.

But I don't want it to go away, what would be the use of her bracelets? They are probably her most trademark weapon, next to her lasso, of course ... Inconsistency is the most thriving resource for Wonder Woman, so unfair.

@tanet62:

her bracelets will still be useful,she doesn't need the weakness against piercing weapons,there are still other powerful attacks that can hurt her and take her down eventually,for example there are energy attacks that can hurt her,she can take a lot of them but they could take her down eventually,remember,you can be super durable but every super durable character has a limit about the amount of damage that it can take,the bracelets will always be useful everytime she uses them to avoid damage from very powerful attcks,so she doesn't need the weakness against piercing weapons.

I don't think so. That was a tiny beam and it burned her. We've seen Superman warm the Earth and split the sea and so on. If it burned her than I don't know if she'd survive a full blast.

The way I see it; it would be one hell of a fight should Superman and Wonder Woman go up against each other. It wouldn't be over quickly, that's for sure. The big decider would be if WW still has all that magic weaponry, and goes in for the kill.
