When I got Wonder Woman I made a couple of decisions.The first one was that I wanted to discover who she was, not what her powers were, not what the storyline was or whether it was a Nazi or whatever kind of bad guy there was, but really who she is. And in reading all the research and how they came up with the character way back in the ‘40’s, it was to give girls their own hero so that it wasn’t just Batman and Superman and all the rest of them that were out there during World War II. She came from an island where all the women could do the same things, and she had to compete against her sisters, her fellow Amazonians and so it was her will in going against her mother which we can all identify with when you’re a teenager or whatever, not wanting to do what your mom wants you to do necessarily. So it gave me the idea that she was a real force and that she had her own ideas about things, and she didn’t think that she was all that. She just really saw a need like so many women do and I’ve discovered that the archetype of Wonder Woman really lives in all of us. She had the goddess within. It’s who we really are. That secret self that yearns to be out and that we hope is appreciated and even if it isn’t we still do what do.

Starting Feminist Friday with my favourite Wonder Woman scene ever. This, I feel, epitomises what I adore about this character: she will fight, and she will win, but she knows that victory through strength of arms isn’t the important part. And she can see past the blind rage to the man beneath, and she has the courage to still offer him her hand.

This is one of the three or four favorite sequences I ever wrote on Wonder Woman, and I think a big part of why I find it moving is that it would never work with almost any other superhero. I can’t quite make Batman or Superman or Iron Man fit this moment. It is, simply, a Wonder Woman moment.

And that’s what I loved about it, it came to me while I was falling asleep one night and I jumped up to write the issue around it, because it says specifically, “there are many kinds of strength. You can use your weapon and break a mountain in half, but my extended hand is stronger.”

Damn, Wonder Woman is awesome.

Super. Hero.
