I have a love/hate relationship w/ this character. She's okay, but I really could use some specific reasons not to hate her, such as explanations about her character, powers, and role in the DCU, etc. Thanks.

Well she has more love for humanity than any other character which is an awesome trait is only topped in h2h combat skills by Karate Kid. Is a warrior and slit Superman throat which is bad @$$ even though I love Superman

But she is also the ultimate feminist due to the Amazonian heritage. And what's with the star spangled undies? That just seems stupid. And what's the deal w/ her and supes? Did they ever hook up in the main (New Earth) universe, or just in things like All Star Batman and Robin the boy wonder and Kingdom Come?

What hot and powerful not enough? 
 
Unlike Bruce and Clark, she's willing to do the unthinkable if need be.  Honestly, as much as I love Batman and Superman, if I were a villain I wouldn't be afraid of either of them, the most they would do is arrest me so I could escape later on.   Diana on the other hand, well she might just choke my ass out if I was bad enough.

same reason as not to hate Superman, even if the stories at the time arent for you.
comics as we know them today would not be what they are without Wonder Woman.
she is a standard by which other comic characters are made.

She's probably like the poster girl of all the DC heroines. That's my opinion.

Wonder Woman is the shiznit... her Comics are awesome... and her Animated Film was pretty sick too... now what these buttholes at WB need to do is make a live action Wonder Woman film and quit giving us the double talk about how they are working on doing it... get the sh!t done damnit... also she is badass in that Justice League Heroes game that came out a few years ago... that I am currently playing...

Eagle and stars aren't just American symbols you know. Eagle is a bird sacred to Zeus, and Athena has used the form of an eagle on several occasions.

I thought the stars' official, in-story explanation is that the American flag was actually inspired by amazonian patterns..but I could be wrong as I don't remember where I read it.

Yeah, you and every third person on the vine. Just check out how many threads devoted to it there are...
 
But for the last time, no, the Amazons in DC are not lesbians.

shes the reason female super heros were taken seriously, with out her characters like storm and she hulk( independent female heros) wouldve taken alot longer to show up.

shes hot
#32 Posted by AtPhantom (14521 posts) - - Show Bio

Forget all this, you want a reason to love her? She's got an army of freaking commando gorillas at her disposal:

Plus she fights Nazis. How is this not awesome?

#34 Posted by deadpool101 (129 posts) - - Show Bio

idk. i feel like most female superheroes are just female knock-offs. she-hulk, hawkgirl, batgirl, supergirl, mary marvel. i guess thats one reason not to dislike her. she's not a knockoff. and she is so definitely not a lesbian! she is like with superman on tons of earths! and the thing about the amazonians creating the american flag is not true. it is just that ww was created in a time where patriotic super heroes were the only type of heroes so she has the red white blue things. the eagle is probably the same deal, patriotism, but the fact that it has been a greek "symbol" excuses it i guess. how about her power? what is the true extent of her power?

She can engage Superman level beings on equal footing. take a look at her page for more.

ww is like totally in love with Clark.........she has been for years........they dont write it because clark is with lane and they dont want to make him out to be a cheating man also they dont want ww to ba a home wrecker. 
 
She also kinda loves Bruce she is in no way a lesbo 
 
i always thought she should end up with nightwing just cause he can get any girl and she is the ultimate in DC
#39 Posted by harleyquinn12 (1767 posts) - - Show Bio

To start off,she's probably the best warrior in the DcU,she has a lasso of truth,and if you take out the heat vision and freeze breath,she's basically just like Superman. AND she was created by the guy who invented the lie detector! And you just gotta love the tiara!

I agree.  I think she's in love with Clark too.

Canon reason:
 
She is the diplomat to the men world, the country she first visited was the United States and it is an amazonian tradition to carry the colors from the country she is visiting.

Who can not like Wonder Woman, seriously!?
She's an iconic, independant, powerful female. (: 
Also, she's hot.

#45 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (84704 posts) - - Show Bio

Her stories tend to be kind of lame. Not all, but her arcs dont seem to have the "pop" of other DCU characters. Its a shame really.

#46 Posted by Vortex13 (12265 posts) - - Show Bio

I really like her character I want to read her comics but I feel like there is a lot of back story, so what trades do I need to get to be caught up?

i guess one of the biggest reasons she's cooler than other female heroes is cuz she's original. most female superheroes are female knock-offs os male heroes: 
Supergirl 
Powergirl 
Batgirl 
Batwoman 
Hawkgirl 
Shehulk 
Wasp 
Mary Marvel  
 
The list goes on and on. Wonder Woman is one of the few not-knock-off female superheroes (out of the main ones that is) 
 
P.S. I know she is not the only one, there's Vixen, Black Canary, Warbird, Storm, but WW is the most prominent, and the 1st..... 
 
oh and one other thing i hafta say i DON'T like about her is the uber-feminism. She's all "men are violent in man's world blah blah blah" and then she goes and kills some villian cuz she's uber violent. her reasons for her amazonian feminism is generally a buncha crap. (i dont want to offend anyone, i have nothing against real feminism, i'm just saying Wonder Woman is kinda over the top with her hate for men. She's contradictory: she hates men's violence, but is violent herself, she hates men in general but likes all of her male colleagues, etc.)

If you want good Wonder Woman stories the runs of Perez, Rucka and Simone are the best in my opinion
