Diana's age

#1 Posted by herrweis (403 posts) - - Show Bio

She stated in issue number eleven (I believe) that she was 23.In issue number zero we see that if a suitable gift is not presented to Hippolyta Diana's aging does not get acknowledged for that year.I thought that Diana was written way too mature to be a 23 year old(in her own title anyway),how many of you think she is much older than 23?

There are many people who are way to mature for their own age, whats wrong with that

It surprised me as well, i thought she'd be older when i read it. But you know, if you experience as much as Wonder Woman in such a short time frame, you tend to mature really fast.

Yeah,I am surprised too but if you handle things like Wonder Woman you tend to mature pretty fast.

Yeah I find it suprising to..and kidna odd.

Her own comics are very mature, calm, collected, and has everything under control most of the time however stubborn sometimes. Plus she seems less powered.

JL she's younger looking, brash, brave, more stubborn, and more powered.

I think her maturity fits the one of a 23 years-old warrior princess... and it didn't shock me to know her age. All the heros are so much younger now hehe.

Keep in mind this is a woman who was raised a warrior -- not kicking up her feet and gazing up at a wall full of One Direction posters. Picture other notable women in history who were raised under the expectation of responsibility (Queen Elizabeth the First etc). You can't compare Wonder Woman to what western society considers a typical twenty-three year old woman way to behave. Now -- if you were to go to countries in the Middle East/Africa and even Southeast Asia, there are girls the age of fifteen who behave as though they were thirty.

Its a completely different set of rules when dealing with Amazons.

I think this answer cuts to the chase pretty efficiently

Dick Grayson doesn't count years that he ages unless he gets a batarang on his birthday.  (JK)
