Wonder Woman is an Amazon warrior princess and one of the most powerful superheroes in the DC Universe. The daughter of Hippolyta, she was given power by the Gods to fight against evil in all its forms. Although she was raised entirely by women on the island of Themyscira, she was sent as an ambassador to the world of man, spreading their idealistic message of strength and love. Wonder Woman fights crime and acts as a positive role model for women everywhere. Her equipment includes the Lasso of Truth, magic gauntlets, and an invisible jet. In the secret identity she has adopted to become closer to humanity, she is Diana Prince, a government agent for the Department of Metahuman Affairs. Wonder Woman is also a founding member of the Justice League of America.

Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, and has a lengthy publication history. This history has sometimes included a sidekick Wonder Girl and many villains. Since her debut she has become one of the most popular and recognizable DC Comics characters, along with Batman and Superman. She first appeared in All-Star Comics #8 (1941).

Wonder Woman, as a design, has had her ups and downs. She started out as a symbol of women's equality and strength in the 1940's, and was later "rebooted" in the 1950's, after World War 2 (and a different writer), as a more "conservative" role model for women - being more interested in fashion, marriage, and crying over boyfriends. lol. Thankfully, she later returned to her roots of kicking ass. 

As an 80's kid, Wonder Woman was before my time... and the idea of a "strong women" was NOT something out of the ordinary. Female fighters were not a rarity in the 80's, as I loved characters like Red Sonja. Rogue and Storm were among my favorite superheroines, both who are much deeper and more interesting characters IMO. That said, I always found Wonder Woman to be kinda boring and generic, visually. Wonder Woman's outfit is also stupidly popular... I think all the Halloween costumes and stripper outfits kinda ruined it for me. 

In the fighting game realm, her appearances in Justice League: Task Force and MK VS DC weren't that great. Her Injustice incarnation fared much better, although I think her role in Injustice's story mode was also kinda insulting to any fan of hers. NetherRealm gave so many obvious "charity lines" in an effort to force her importance in the story... they tried too hard.
