Be Yourself, Unless You Can be Wonder Woman…Then Be Wonder Woman
Finally, after a decade of summers with male action heroes, how cool is that we now have a kick-butt female character coming to the big screen? Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming "Wonder Woman" will be the first time the iconic female warrior stars in a major motion picture. This is going to be great...I mean, she is just so cool. She just owns it, "I am a superhero - so what!" It's the attitude plus...okay, some superhero skills. Like what she can do with her golden lasso? Amazing! Plus, how about her hand-to-hand combat skills? Or her superhuman strength? Oh yeah, she flies too. Imagine flying over Niagara Falls, Olmsted Park, the Skyway, or Canalside. I so want to be her!
Little girls have imagined having her powers since the beginning (1942, her first comic book). I still have my original Wonder Woman lunch box, and my daughter, Jacqueline loved her Wonder Woman Halloween costume, often wearing it to bed.
As far as comic-book superheroes go, Wonder Woman has been around longer than most of the guys, except Batman, Superman and Captain America. Smithsonian Magazine even did a tribute to her longevity.
The movie premieres June 1st, So grab your daughter (and son!) and get a dose of the baddest superhero of the last century!
