DC Super Hero Girls Discover the Power of Love

When you’re a student, the return to school in the fall is always a bit of a letdown after the glorious freedom of summer. I remember that part of me was happy to see my teachers and get a chance to play with friends every day, but only part of me. Plus, there was usually the dreaded "what I did on summer vacation" assignment that always felt like a weird competition and an invitation to try to one-up your classmates.

New Super-Man: Why I Love Peng Deilan, the Wonder-Woman of China

Wonder Woman has been around for 76 years. She is, hands down, the most iconic female super hero that has ever been created. That’s a pretty impressive curriculum vitae in and of itself, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. From her inception, it has been pretty easy to cast your gaze across the swath of popular culture and see where Princess Diana of Themyscira’s influence has found footing. She has spawned hundreds—if not thousands—of super-powered female characters that we have all picked up and read and loved almost as much as the original.

LEGENDS COLLIDE IN NEW 'WONDER WOMAN/CONAN' CROSSOVER

LEGENDS COLLIDE IN NEW WONDER WOMAN/CONAN CROSSOVER
Gail Simone pens a new miniseries this September

The wondrous Diana of Themyscira comes face to face with the Cimmerian barbarian Conan in a new miniseries this fall—WONDER WOMAN/CONAN. DC and Dark Horse have teamed up for a crossover of epic proportions, bringing back fan-favorite WONDER WOMAN writer Gail Simone and WONDER WOMAN artist Aaron Lopresti for an adventure unlike anything seen before—a collision of legends.

Wonder Woman: The True Amazon Reimagines Diana's Past

She doesn’t occupy the story for long, but I couldn’t help but be fascinated with young Diana in Wonder Woman. The only child on an island of adults, her childhood would be unlike any other in history. What would that be like? Something tells me it wouldn’t go smoothly, and after reading Jill Thompson’s original graphic novel, WONDER WOMAN: THE TRUE AMAZON, it’s clear I’m not the only Wonder Woman fan who feels that way.

Steve Trevor

Being a soldier means being ready for just about anything the world can throw at you, but no amount of special training can prepare a pilot for crashing on a mysterious, hidden island. Unfortunately for Steve Trevor, that’s exactly how he came to be the first outsider to set foot on the Amazonian homeland of Themyscira.

After being rescued from the wreckage by the princess Diana, Steve was put to the task of winning the trust of the Amazons—something much easier said than done, considering their complete isolation from the world outside their magical borders. But luckily for him, Diana was inspired by Steve’s bravery and compassion, enough to vouch for him against her sisters’ natural misgivings.

Though he has no super powers or mythical weapons of his own, Steve’s strength and courage in the face of danger have proven him to be a consummate soldier and occasional spy, saving his squad and the nation more times than we can count. All the while, he’s been an invaluable ally for Diana, both in her civilian life and in her super heroic duties as Wonder Woman, serving as her entry point and frequent guide through the strange and unpredictable world of humankind…and, on occasion, much, much more.

The Sounds of Battle: Rupert Gregson-Williams Discusses the Wonder Woman Soundtrack

She’s been a beloved, heroic icon for 75 years, with fans across the world of every age, nationality and gender. Her image has graced comic books, clothing, toys, animation, food, games, art shows and just about everything else you can imagine. Her first live action movie was one of the most anticipated of the year and would shape how she appears in film for years to come.

Wonder Woman: Doctor Poison's Toxic Legacy

While Ares and Germany’s real-life General Erich Ludendorff may serve as the two biggest adversaries in Wonder Woman, they’re aided by the brilliant, deadly chemist named Isabel Maru, or as she’s referred to by the British army—Doctor Poison.

DC Comics 101: Woo! Woo! Meet Etta Candy

You’ve heard of Batman’s sidekick Robin, and I’m willing to bet you’re pretty familiar with Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen, but do you know Wonder Woman’s best friend Etta Candy?

If you answered “no,” that’s all right, you’re definitely not alone. Etta was one of DC’s earliest sidekicks, and one of the first female supporting characters in super hero comics who wasn’t a love interest or a villain—but she’s also got some truly weird and wild history, which can make her just a little challenging to understand at first glance.
