* Marston himself should get credit for his ''epic'' negotiation with DC Comics. While most of the characters' creators signed over their creations to DC for a lump sum, Marston was clever and essentially ''leased'' Wonder Woman to DC. They stop publishing Wonder woman comics? Rights went to him (and/or his estate). They want to do movies? Merchandise? He or his estate had to approve it and they'd get a cut of the profits. Oh, and when he passed away, the rights would go to his wife and their partner, and ''they'd'' have to approve it and get the same cut. DC didn't think much of it at the time, thinking the title would be a short-lived novelty at best. But when feminism took off and she became a central character to the franchise? The MadScientist and his wives laughed all the way to the bank. [[note]] The downside to this, unfortunately, is that DC's rights to ''any'' Wonder Woman related characters and concepts still have ties to the Marston estate. This is a reason other than sexism why Wonder Woman (as well as Troia and Wonder Girl) has less merch, sometimes doesn't show up in shows set in the DCU, and why it took 70 years to get a full-blown movie.

** However, how does she deal with Ares in the climax? She ensnares him with her magic lasso and forces him to see the [[NukeEm logical conclusion to his plans]], which would leave him completely alone [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly and no one left to worship him]]. What does Ares do? '''''He cries.''''' The most {{Badass}} moment of the storyline is completely and utterly ''non-violent''.

* [[http://io9.gizmodo.com/10-ways-etta-candy-was-more-badass-than-wonder-woman-1760809850 Everything Golden Age Etta Candy did]].
* In a Silver Age Justice League story Wonder Woman was up against a robot duplicate of herself who seemed stronger and more powerful. Remembering her Amazon heritage, she dug in her heels, vowed that a mere thing of steel and wire would not defeat her, and defeated her counterpart.



** Which leads to the IdiotBall / FridgeLogic of why she didn't attack Doomsday with the spear.

** And then she fearlessly leaps into battle against a nigh-invulnerable monster with her sword at the ready. '''THIS is WonderWoman'''.

* In the character's first ComicBook/PostCrisis storyline, Diana is fighting the progeny of Ares, Deimos, and is ensnared by his beard of snakes. Seeing her mortal friends being overwhelmed and she must save them, Diana shows a new ''big'' difference compared to her compatriots of TheDCU, Franchise/{{Batman}} and Franchise/{{Superman}}. Namely, she doesn't feel bound by ThouShallNotKill and so takes the demigod's head off!
