Wonder Woman isn’t the only female hero, but she stands apart. She began as a true original, rather than a variation on a previously existing character, and she blazed a trail as one of the first grown-up females in comics without a “girl” attached to her name. But she’s more than just a symbol who resonates deeply across generations; in terms of comics mythology, she’s an enduring powerhouse.... Check out the full article at Entertainment Weekly.
