* AdaptationDisplacement: The Lynda Carter TV series, especially since unlike her [[Franchise/{{Superman}} famous]] [[Franchise/{{Batman}} teammates]], Diana hasn't had any really well-known adaptations since. When ABC News reported on TheMovie, they claimed it would be an adaptation of the TV show with absolutely no mention that, you know, it's a comic book.

** Wonder Woman being characterized as the only one of the "Big 3" to kill, not the least because of how DependingOnTheWriter it is and how she can easily be as ThouShallNotKill as Superman and Batman. Some feel her willingness to kill is limited to extreme situations and characterizes her as a warrior who is willing to make the tough calls. Others feel that it has opened the door to the same DarkerAndEdgier antics that DC has been criticized for and that too many writers make her either too violent or crowbar in too many ShootTheDog situations for bloodshed.

** The UN's decision to make Wonder Woman an honorary ambassador proved to be a divisive one, with many claiming that it's nothing more than a publicity stunt which undermines the work that real women do. Plenty of people still support the decision, citing that it's a symbolic gesture and that [[http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-10-22/wonder-woman-named-un-ambassador-as-staff-protest/7956854 this isn't the first time a fictional character has been honored in this manner.]]

** The recent revelation of her bisexuality becoming canon has become a hot topic in the fandom.



* InformedRealLifeFame: Her status as being one of DC's "Big Three", the other two being Superman and Batman. The sad fact is is that they're both far more popular than she is, and the details of their series are far more well known. Wonder Woman's mythology and supporting cast have often suffered inconsistencies, with even the writers struggling to figure out what her driving motivation is. As detailed elsewhere, most potential adaptations of her end up never being made, with the live action series being the only one that's really well known. She ''is'' undeniably famous--but mainly in the sense that most people know ''of'' her, less so in the sense that many people know that much ''about'' her.

She's also currently the only member of the trio to be of the LGBTQ persuasion.

* SuddenlySexuality: The September 2016 revelation that Wonder Woman is canonically bisexual has....divided the fans. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement and we'll leave it at that.]]

** The identity of Wonder Woman's ArchEnemy is often debated between fans. One side says it's Ares, another say Cheetah, others say Circe.

* Informed Wrongness: Anytime the subject of Diana using lethal force is brought up in stories featuring her and other heroes, chances are her willingness to kill will be treated as a moral failing on her part regardless of the context. The Maxwell Lord issue is a prime example of this. While the public freaking out is excusable since the video tape that showed her killing Max was edited to look like she'd killed an innocent, unarmed man, Superman and Batman treated her like the Anti-Christ despite having full knowledge of the situation and having even broken the no-kill rule themselves in the past.

* CrisisCrossover: As a major player in the DCU, she's affected by pretty much all of them to some extent (as mentioned, a popular move during these crossovers is to have Themysicra invaded and/or get half its population slaughtered). However, 1991's ''War of the Gods'' was arguably the only one to actually ''center'' around her mythos, and it was unfortunately not very well-received (see the page for why).

* {{Narm}}: In the TV series, her outfit looks like a blue ''diaper''.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: Not uncommon - the show had a somewhat higher budget than what Adam West's Batman got, but the show's premise required more fantastic plots, and unlike ''Batman'', it couldn't hide its cheapness behind the "just a silly comedy" excuse. Special mention goes to the swimming sequence from "The Bermuda Triangle Crisis".

* DesignatedHero: Her New 52 incarnation who lectures people in danger for being weak instead of saving them (at first), casually kills villains and is proud of it, and lets the Amazons propagate by raping and murdering sailors and then selling male children as slaves just because said slaves are treated decently by their owner.
