question about wonder woman

part of her character lol

she originally wasn't as bullet proof as she is now, just like Superman her powers have grown since she was first brought into comics.

the "Bullets and Bracelets" thing was something that just stuck around, much like the Invisible Jet, which she doesn't need to use because she can fly now lol

why is that she needs to block bullets with her bracelets. I have seen her walk through lava, get hit by superman and fly in outer space yet a bullet can hurt her.

it's a magical construct...

it's not really a plane, it's just easier to explain like that

The first episode of American dad was funny. But after that it was meh. I only watch it for the story.

Plus her skin isn't invulnerable to projectiles. (don't know why) but blunt force trauma and heat (depending on the temperature) she has more resistance. Bullets, Arrows, things of that nature for some reason she's vulnerable to.

I think she uses the bracelets more to make bullets ricochet back to her enemies than just block them, but im just saying this, is not that i read about it or something.

zzzzzzzzz

Maybe it's the bracelets themselves, I once read that Wonderwoman's bracelets creates force fields which protects her from lava and a punch from Superman. In the Wonderwoman novel 'Mythos' it says that the amazon's once suffered a terrible attack and wears bracelets if such a battle ever occurs again.

She just looks cooler blocking them with her gauntlets.

I think she stopped a nuke in a JL episode. Good point though. As for the plane, that was sort of rebooted to be an invisible jet she got from Steve Trevor which was a military prototype to fight the Nazis, I believe. But it's true she didn't fly originally. I don't think she did in the old Super Friends. And originally Superman was just much greater than a human but now he's god-level.

Bruce Timm said he had gotten a lot of flack for making Superman "so weak" but struggling to successfully lower a falling piece of building still seems pretty super to me. Fans are just picky.

I like that WW still rebounds the bullets with her bracelets. I think she can do it with ray/laser types of attacks too.

I think the reason they are keeping the braclet/bullet thingys is because it was part of her origonal design, it's too much of a 'classic.' So i don't think they will change it.
