In 1975, actress Lynda Carter first broughtto American TV screens. This year, the superhero turns 75 and earns one more distinction as a United Nations honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls.
The first all-American heroine had a lasting impact on both boys and girls, men and women, alike. Carter said on “CBS This Morning” that she thinks that’s because Wonder Woman was “never predatory” and is a symbol that “we are stronger together.”
“My character was for women and not against men,” Carter said Friday before heading to U.N. headquarters in New York City for the honorary ceremony. “The ‘she’ has become a ‘we.’ It is this community of ‘us,’ it is this strength that lives within us, that we can do anything… You can be thin or fat, beautiful or not, or young or old, you can wear a bikini or a burkini or whatever, and still be and have that within you.”
Unfortunately, not every female is celebrating Wonder Woman’s new gig as hundreds have allegedly signed an online petition against the appointment, arguing that the “overtly sexualized” character sends the wrong message about female empowerment.
REALLY INTERNET? REALLY?
In my own opinion, the ones complaining ARE ridiculously stupid. I bet 90 percent of them haven't read how the character has evolved over the years since she debuted and just concentrated on WHAT SHE IS WEARING! Feminist SJW's, ladies and gents! God forbit they can't go a day without complaining no matter how big or SMALL the issue is.
Colorful costume aside, the character has grown over the years into the EPITOME of what some more sane women would say describes a woman to a T.
She is a peacekeeper first and foremost, but isn't afraid to lay the smackdown if need be. In the current versions, she is one of the few Justice Leaguers that is an actual diplomat both in real life and in fiction - an AMBASSADOR.
Here's an extended backstory courtesy of Wikipedia:
Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character is a founding member of the Justice League, demigoddess, and warrior princess of the Amazons, which are based on the Amazons of Greek mythology. In her homeland, she is Princess Diana of Themyscira, and outside of her homeland, she is known by her secret identity Diana Prince.
Wonder Woman was created by the American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston, with his wife and co-creator Elizabeth Holloway Marston, and artist H. G. Peter. Their cohabitant, Olive Byrne, is credited as being Marston's muse for the iconic characters' physical appearance. Marston drew a great deal of inspiration from early feminists, and especially from birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger. The character first appeared in All Star Comics #8 in December 1941 and first cover-dated on Sensation Comics #1, January 1942. The Wonder Woman title has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986.
Wonder Woman's origin story relates that she was sculpted from clay by her mother Queen Hippolyta, and given life along with superhuman powers as gifts by the Greek Gods. However, in recent years she has been depicted as the daughter of Zeus, and jointly raised by her mother Hippolyta and her aunts Antiope and Menalippe. Her Amazonian-training helped to develop a wide range of extraordinary skills in strategy, hunting and fighting. She possesses an arsenal of advanced technology, including the Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and, in older stories, a range of devices based on Amazon technology. Although Diana is 5,000 years old, her first exposure to non-Amazon society as Wonder Woman will have only come within the last few 100 years. While the Amazons were originally created to protect "man's world," they ultimately abandoned it.
Wonder Woman was created during World War II; the character was initially depicted fighting Axis military forces as well as an assortment of colorful supervillains, although over time her stories came to place greater emphasis on characters, deities, and monsters from Greek mythology. Many stories depicted Wonder Woman rescuing herself from bondage, which inverted the "damsels in distress" trope that were common in comics during the 1940's. In the decades since her debut, Wonder Woman has gained a formidable cast of enemies bent on eliminating the Amazon, including classic villains such as Ares, Hades, Cheetah, Circe, Doctor Psycho, and Giganta, along with more recent adversaries such as the First Born. Wonder Woman has also regularly appeared in comic books featuring the superhero teams Justice Society (from 1941) and Justice League (from 1960).
Notable depictions of the character in other media include the 1975–1979 Wonder Woman TV seriesstarring Lynda Carter, as well as animated series such as the Super Friends and Justice League. Since Carter's television series, studios struggled to introduce a new live-action Wonder Woman to audiences, although the character continued to feature in a variety of toys and merchandise, as well as animated adaptations of DC properties, including a direct-to-DVD animated feature. Attempts to return Wonder Woman to television have included a television pilot for NBC in 2011, closely followed by another stalled production for The CW.] Gal Gadot portrayed Wonder Woman in the 2016 film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, marking the character's feature film debut after over 70 years of history.Gadot will also star in the character's first solo live-action film Wonder Woman, set to be released on June 2, 2017.
Now with all that in mind; the people who are outraged just because of her choice of attire are proven to have ZERO intelligence since they barely scratched the surface of the character's rich history.
