Describe Wonder Woman's personality

#1 Posted by Imagine_Man15 (1801 posts) - - Show Bio

I want to start reading the New 52 Wonder Woman series, but I haven't been able to convince myself to pick it up yet, because Wonder Woman is just not a character who I've ever found interesting. Granted I've never actually read any of her solo series before, but everything I've seen her in, she just seems really drab and kind of without a personality. I know a lot of people love her, so I was wondering... what makes her interesting to you?

Maybe is the fact she comes from a totally different culture, she has lived all her life in some sort of golden cage, suddenly she decided to leave the comfort of her own home to explore the world and the mankind.

You never read a Wonder Woman solo book so what is "everything else you seen" consist of? Justice league comics crossover events? you are not going to really get anything interesting from Wonder Woman personality ETC if that's the case. Same goes for Batman Superman ETC if you disregard all there movies and solo comics and just know them from comic book crossovers.

I don't think anyone wants to waste time posting what they like about Wonder Woman for someone who has not bothered reading even one book. :P

The best thing to do is START with the NEW 52 Wonder Woman #1 and go from there if you don't like it and don't want to continue then drop it. She basically the same Wonder Woman as always but her environment has changed. Most every review I have read so far rates it among the best of the new 52 comics including Superman Flash and arguably others.

I hope you enjoy Wonder Woman if you decide to get it.

PRE-DC_52 Wonder Woman for the most part was not allowed to have a personality or make mistakes. She was never allowed to be anything but Wonder Woman. So far the new DC 52 has managed to give her some personality however I need to read more issues before I can define her character.

@Imagine_Man15: For a complete personality profile, check that section in my reference piece"Who is WW?" here:

But basically...She is a big kid inside...a big kid with a sense of responsible duty, becuz she LOVES. Becuz she values the tenets of Aphrodite. Furthermore, she is the most organic, human, and quirky Amazon. WW's archetype personality was the basis for other female protagonists...such as La Femme Nikita or Buffy. Each one of those protagonists were the "oddball" out of the group they belong to, be it superspies or slayers or whatever else.

Wonder Woman- Diana's nickname--the Amazon Princess--illustrates the beautiful dichotomy of her character. She's a powerful, strong-willed woman who would never back down from a fight or a challenge, but she's also a lover of peace who would never seek a fight or a conflict. She's simultaneously both the most fierce and most nurturing member of the team.With her powerful abilities and vast training, Diana is capable of going toe-to-toe with just about any hero or villain. She's also experienced at handling threats that range from common crime to crimes that are of a magical or supernatural nature. She commands respect both as Wonder Woman and Diana Prince, the ambassador of a warrior nation. She's got political connections that could be useful to the Justice League, and she's exactly who you want with you in the trenches.

Basically her personality is like Superman's except more fleshed out and interesting.

The biggest problem with Diana is that she doesn't have a strictly codified personality like Superman and Batman. Every new writer puts his/her spin on how they believed Diana should act. So, we got compassionate Diana who loves everyone to rage-filled warrior who is silling to commit cold-blooded murder for the greater good.

From what I've read she's really friendly and approachable so pretty much like Supes.

What I like about Wonder Woman: She is smart, gentile, classy, brave, has strong morals, and doesn't take crap from anyone. One of my favorite scenes from her would be Wonder Woman #8 I believe. In the issue she found out that there were a hord of men that Hephaestus kept that came from the product of her Amazon sisters having sex with men at sea and then killing them. They discarded the young boys as there are no men allowed on Paradise Island. This type of teaching was also fed to Wonder Woman. But instead of following her Amazon sisters way, she instead embraced them all as her brothers without even knowing them. That's the attitude that puts a smile on my face and makes me appreciate her as a Superhero.

My ideal Wonder Woman is that she has a pragmatic "can do" attitude that at times can seem endearing, naive, or strong depending on the situation but it is the heart of her idealism. She sees problems and she's not afraid to talk about them and deal with them directly. My Wonder Woman is more athlete/activist than warrior/ambassador.

Personally, I don't care for New 52 Wonder Woman. Azz writes her character well but his book is incredibly boring. In Justice League she's written very cold and impulsive it seems. Superman/Wonder Woman looks like it has a decent balance to it.

Pre 52 Wonder Woman will always be my favorite and she can be summed up in one page which is narrated by Lois.
