Wonder Woman

First, there is She.

Diana, of Themyscira, the Paradise island. Wonder Woman.

What is it about her? She's beautiful, good, smart, strong and fast. Really, what's not to like?

And this is high praise, coming from a guy who's first confusing exposure to the Amazing Amazon was her being just this agile dame in a pantsuit in an issue of The Brave and The Bold, teaming up with the Batman. I'm still trying to figure her out.

Anyway, it is Diana, the idea of her, that captures my fancy. To my mind, she stands at the heart of the trinity that also includes Batman and Superman. And so we begin with her.
