Wonder Woman Wednesday

Wonder Woman Wednesday (101)

The Ballad of Donna Troy.

It occurred to me in preparing to write this week's column that it may be misleading to call Donna Troy "Wonder Girl," as she hasn't been properly Wonder Girl in quite some time - at least a generation; however, Donna Troy was the original Wonder Girl and the one and only in many people's eyes. 

Greetings, fellow Amazons! I hope you all had a lovely week.

Although there's something to be said about Wonder Woman, sometimes, there's too much. So, this week I thought I'd discuss a few various going-ons in the world of Wonder Woman, like water cooler stories... (You know, if you worked in office filled with people all obsessed with Wonder Woman.)

Fans were very excited when it was announced that not only would there be an animated feature based on the Batman TV series from the sixties, but Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar would all be reprising their original Bat roles! How cool is that?

Although Wonder Woman has always been my favorite, it's fair to say the Bionic Woman gave Lynda Carter a run for her money. Although you may think that Lindsay Wagner's blonde hair would give her the edge, one would have to consider the deep blue pools of Carter's eyes and be lost in the abyss.

My fellow Amazons:

Greetings and welcome to another week of Wonder Woman Wednesday!  This week, we have a special treat. We get to chat with Wonder Woman: Amazonia artist Phil Winslade.

An interesting thing happened. When Batman V Superman started releasing toys to promote its film, fans (and Wonder Woman fans) were treated to a new batch of Wonder Woman action figures and dolls. The only problem is . . . they were not the best looking.  That is until talented folks started repainting the figures to some fairly remarkable results.

We had Batman V Superman to varying degrees of success... so why not Wonder Woman V Harley Quinn?

Greetings, Wonder Freaks and Geeks! (I'm so glad I lived to see the day those adages would become self-empowering compliments!) This week saw the release of the highly anticipated Superwoman Rebirth, written and drawn by Wonder Woman alumni, Phil Jimenez. 

Wonder Woman for President is hardly a new concept, as it's been touted about long before gracing the cover of the first issue of Gloria Steinem's feminist magazine, Ms., In 1972. The concept goes back to Wonder Woman #7 in 1943. It's fairly typical for fans to wish their favorite characters or celebrities would become president during an election year. Imagine how thrilled "Bedtime for Bonzo" fans must have been when Reagan took office?

Let me catch my breath. I don't even know where to begin. The new Wonder Woman movie trailer that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last week is flawless... absolutely flawless!!!
