Beautiful portrait of a happy Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is filled with love and optimism not with anger and rage. We need more books filled with this Wonder Woman.
I think it’s okay for Wonder Woman to be angry. When I wrote her, I tried to show her compassion, even in fury. But I had a secret key in my brain…she’s never angry on her own behalf. Slap her in the face, she will laugh at you. Harm an innocent, she will make you regret the day you came out of the womb.
That works for me. When I write the selfless heroes, Superman, Wonder Woman, and my own view of Batman, I don’t like to see them fight for selfish reasons. When I wish the world had superheroes, it’s not for them to fight pointlessly and bicker endlessly. It’s not to stop bank robberies.
It’s to fight things that are unjust, to stand up for people who are being bullied and victimized.
In that case, I think it’s okay for her to knock someone down. What makes Diana different is that she immediately extends her hand to help them back up. That is the KEY of why I love her so much.
