It’s been 15 years since the release of The Lord of the Rings (LOTR): The Return of the King, and after 15 years, I am still utterly fascinated with Aragorn. This character, among a sea of fantastic characters in LOTR, is one of the greatest movie characters of all time in the greatest trilogy ever. Putting the debate of the greatest trilogy aside for another time, I want to focus on the hero – one parents will be proud for their kids to emulate in their future years.
Who is Wonder Girl? Wonder Girl originally made her first appearance in comics as a younger version of Wonder Woman (Princess Diana). It wasn’t until she appeared as a member of the Teen Titans that she was given her Donna Troy alter ego. After a few attempts, the Titans didn’t really gain popularity until they were rebooted in the '80s by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Perez. A mix of old and new characters, the creators gave fans something a little different this time around. One of the previously established members of the team was Wonder Girl (a.k.a. Donna Troy), Wonder Woman’s adopted younger sister and sidekick. Under the tutelage of Wolfman and Perez, she would become one of the most popular members of the team.
