Superheroine from the DC Comics universe, created by psychologist William Moulton Marston and cartoonist Harry G. Peter. She was intended to be the female counterpart of Superman. In practice, alongside Batman and Superman, she is one of DC’s most distinctive characters and together with them forms the informal Trinity, which is the core of the Justice League. In the films from the DC Extended Universe, she is played by Gal Gadot.
Diana is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, the first child born on Paradise Island in the three thousand-year histories of the immortal Amazons. The Amazons were created by Greek goddesses who restored the souls of women murdered by men by placing them on the island. According to one of the origins of Wonder Woman, a certain soul was kept from being born, and that soul was Diana – it came from the unborn child of a woman who was first among the victims.
Diana commands respect both as Wonder Woman and as the Princess. Being titled as “Princess of the Amazons” illustrates the duality of her character. She is a resilient heroine, gifted with a strong will, who does not back down from a fight or a challenge. Moreover, she acts like a diplomat, emphasizing “favoring the pen” (instead of weapons) she loves peace and therefore does not seek conflict. She is both the most violent and the most caring member of the Justice League – her connections as Honorary Ambassador to the United Nations make her an invaluable ally. With powerful skills at her disposal, centuries of training, and experience in dealing with threats (both from petty criminals and those involving magic), Diana is capable of fighting almost any villain. Depending on the creator, she has been described as a balanced ambassador and warrior or an extremely naïve, innocent creature. What remains unchanged is her caring and humanity her belief in love, empathy, and compassion. Her most important enemies include Cheetah and Ares. Her love interest is pilot Steve Trevor.
Wonder Woman apart from appearing on the pages of many comic books has been the heroine of animated films, series, and computer games set in the DC Comics universe. She first appeared in All-Star Comics vol. 1 #8 (1941). Marston was inspired by Greek mythology and his research. Although she is not the first comic book superheroine, the scale of her recognition has led her to be regarded as a feminist twist on the world of heroes.
