NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is constantly providing the world with updates on their exploration missions and scientific endeavors, even aboard the International Space Station. Last year alone saw the final moments of Cassini as it plunged into Saturn, live coverage of the Solar Eclipse, and the Geeky Parent Guide even explored mission updates from Mars.

After watching David Letterman interview President Obama for his new Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, I’m left with hope. For what? Why? I’m not sure, but I thought I’d ride the positive wave and apply it to this week’s Wonder Woman Wednesday column.

Hope. That is one of my favorite things about Wonder Woman. She is a symbol of hope for a good today and a better tomorrow. Wonder Woman doesn’t give up; she always fights the good fight, no matter how hopeless and dire the situation may be - without question, without hesitation.

Nearly ten years ago, the world was introduced to Iron Man and The Dark Knight. Iron Man was released in May of 2008 with Robert Downey Jr. leading the way, while The Dark Knight, featuring the legendary performance of Heath Ledger as The Joker, debuted later that year in July. These two films are a perfect gateway for parents and their teens to dive into the comic book world, while enjoying action/adventure films and then talking about their favorite moments and characters.

Hey, readers! Welcome to a great new year. 2018 is going to be a great year of new hope.

2017 really was a difficult year between the politics, scandals, violence ,and forces of nature.  Sometimes, it’s difficult to find the good, but it’s in there.

Wonder Woman is one example of the good. It’s so exciting to see Diana back in the limelight. Front and center. I expect this trend to keep going. Her film proved to be a huge success and made her a true heavy hitter in the DCEU due mostly to the dedication of director Patty Jenkins and actress Gal Gadot - two amazing women, with major talent and passion for the character.

What can be said bout Gal as Wonder Woman? She’s perfect. This has turned her into a global super star, and she’s sweet and wonderful and everything . And how great was she on SNL? As with BVS, Wonder Woman was the breakout superstar of Justice League and arguably the best thing about the movie. Although, I really liked all of the performances by the rest of the actors. I wouldn’t mind a sequel. They poised Wonder Woman front and center, and she seemed so obvious in the position.  Can’t wait for more WW on the silver screen.

You could definitely see the cultural impact Wonder Woman has had on the world. While always popular, it was amazing to see the mass of Wonder Woman cosplayers and Halloween costumes. And hey, sometimes people just dress like her for the hell of it!

Greg Rucka, Nicola Scott, and Liam Sharp wrapped up their critically popular and fan-lauded run on the Wonder Woman comic book series. Don’t be too sad; it was announced artist Liam Sharp would be doing a Brave and the Bold mini-series featuring Batman and Wonder Woman. Sharp will also be handling writing duties! Can’t wait!

Speaking of future Wonder Woman, artist Yannick Paquette is hard at work on drawing writer Grant Morrison’s script for the much anticipated Wonder Woman: Earth One 2.

Jill Thompson won an Eisner Award for her work on the original graphic novel, Wonder Woman: The True Amazon - the first for Wonder Woman, I believe.

The new Justice League action cartoon was a success. Wonder Woman was everywhere and just couldn’t be caught. I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings for our amazing Amazon. Whatever the journey, we’ll be there for the ride.
