Welcome to this week’s discussion of BEHIND THE MASK, in which we welcome our resident armchair psychologists to ponder and muse, our literary detectives to theorize and question.
We invite you all to join the discussion below to explore the never-needed mask of WONDER WOMAN.
Wonder Woman has long held the torch for not just being the most powerful female superhero in the DC universe, but one of the most powerful heroes of any gender or comic realm.
Wonder Woman, both on the page and behind the scenes, stand out from nearly every other character in any comic book universe. From the complex romantic lifestyle of her creator, to her origins from the female utopia on the island of Themyscira, Wonder Woman’s purpose has always been to embody power, dominance, inducement, and diplomacy. And without question, she remains symbol for women’s equality throughout the decade.
Let’s pull up a chair and dig deeper into the eras of change that have defined Wonder Woman through the lens of “Female Empowerment”.
Which of Wonder Woman’s powers speak the loudest on “fema le empowerment” and why?
What unique contribution does Wonder Woman make to the Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman collective of the DC Trinity?
What are the traits of Wonder Woman that helped to create an unwavering icon for females around the globe for decades?
Is “paradise” only possible for women, with men out of the picture?
Share all your thoughts, theories, and additional questions below!
