->''"I started out Wonderella to make an off-the-clock superhero who was an average woman instead of some 24/7 warrior... though somewhere along the line, 'average woman' became a cross between [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} Elaine Benes]] and Zelda [[Creator/FScottFitzgerald Fitzgerald]]."''
-->-- '''Justin Pierce'''

'''''[[http://nonadventures.com/ The Non-Adventures of Wonderella]]''''' is a parody of the Creator/DCComics character Franchise/WonderWoman, and many superhero tropes in general. It focuses mainly on the mundane parts of the life of Wonderella, a lazy [[TheLadette Ladette]] superheroine who demonstrates [[PunchClockHero little interest in being a hero]]... or, in fact, doing anything much outside of partying, getting completely wasted, violence, and shopping. She is super-strong, super-durable, and she can't fly but she can "totally jump hella high," and [[FlightStrengthHeart when tied up she can hork up a giant octopus]], [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/06/28/balance-of-flower/ tell plants to die]], or [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/04/26/power-couple/ curl up in a perfect ball when traumatized]]. Also has a rarely used invisible blimp.

The comic updates on Saturdays, and usually is accompanied by a message from the writer.

* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: [[http://nonadventures.com/2006/10/14/enter-the-dragon-slayer/ in Enter The DRAGON SLAYER]]
** Also in [[http://nonadventures.com/2006/11/11/guess-whos-coming-to-dinner/ Guess Who's Coming To DINNER]]. Tim Allen is apparently too spicy for [[strike: [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Galactus]]]] [[CaptainErsatz Ginormus]].
* TotallyRadical: There's an old video of Wonderella Sr. telling kids about the wonders of the internet, and [[http://nonadventures.com/2013/08/24/breaking-baud/ then doing a rap song about how internet piracy is bad]].
* TrueNeutral: [[invoked]]Or as Dr. Shark puts it, [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/03/15/clover-and-over-again/ Personality pH 7]].
* UnexplainedRecovery: The Quizzicle. "[[LampshadeHanging Remember when this guy died? That was great]]."
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Wonderella, who tends to cause more problems than she solves on-screen. Why go punch giant lizards when you can have a beer and watch soaps?
%%* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: [[http://nonadventures.com/2007/11/17/melanin-colleague-and-the-infinite-sadness/ So does clutter-free web design.]]
* VideoWill: [[http://nonadventures.com/2009/08/08/big-will-style/ "Oh! Hello there! I am dead."]]
* VillainousHarlequin: Jokerella, skimping on the "villainous". Her mother Pirouette was a much straighter example.
* WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma: [[http://nonadventures.com/2010/10/16/quote-of-arms/ "Those]], madam, are called '''scare''' quotes. I'm using them to strike '''terror''' into the hearts of my enemies."
* TheWarOnStraw: [[http://nonadventures.com/2014/05/31/the-strawman-cometh/ Strawman]] is a scarecrow-like villain (well, [[HarmlessVillain more or less]]) who spouts nonsense related to almost every Trope on that page. Wonderella shoves him off a building (despite the fact he was just creating a public disturbance) because he was just so ''annoying''.
* WaxingLyrical: The entirety of Wonderella's speech [[http://nonadventures.com/2013/01/05/alcoholics-autonomous/ here]] was cribbed from Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car."
* WeaksauceWeakness: Hitlerella's greatest weakness is that [[spoiler:she has a moustache.]] It's not pretty.
** Wonderella halts an invading alien force with alcohol. (It doesn't poison them or anything, it just makes them think flying into the sun is a ''really'' good idea...)
* WeaponsGradeVocabulary: When [[http://nonadventures.com/2012/03/24/while-my-guitar-gently-weaponizes/ massed guitars]] try to destroy city using song, it didn't work. Then those guitars decided to use some experimental songs from Pete (a garage band), it resulted in a BigNo from Wonderella and sidekick.
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: Patrianna's outfit.
* WhamEpisode: We all know how Dana is a usually selfish {{Jerkass}} whose morality is labeled as "neutral" and often causes as much damage as she tries to fix because of how often she thinks about herself, [[spoiler: and is also the person who will not stand by and let her fans be treated like garbage by misogynist pigs.]] [[http://nonadventures.com/2013/05/04/hook-line-and-drinker/ As seen here.]]
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Apparently Wonderella's original powers were so lame she was given [[http://nonadventures.com/2006/09/09/the-torment-of-a-thousand-yesterdays/ new ones.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Nearly OnceAnEpisode. It's that kind of strip.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: [[http://nonadventures.com/2012/10/06/view-to-a-dill/ Here]]:
-->Hitlerella: '''A giant pickle jar.''' Christ. Does anyone else here even ''own'' a gun?
* WizardingSchool: [[http://nonadventures.com/2007/07/21/lack-magic-woman/ Harry Potter style.]]
* WolverinePublicity: Mocked when Wonderella's mom suggests she delay foiling the villain's plan until the last minute.
-->'''Dana's Mom''': Run around with the bomb! Waste time with some planes and tanks. You've seen how Batman does it.
-->'''Wonderella''': Yes, we've all seen the HELL outta Batman, Ma!
* WorthIt: [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/05/24/a-signage-of-the-times/ The snarky sign finds getting its store burned down was worth it just to throw a can at Wonderella's head.]]
* WrongGenreSavvy: [[http://nonadventures.com/2007/11/10/djinn-there-done-that/ Wonderella is annoyed that finding a genie won't get her wishes.]]
* XMeetsY: Wonderella is essentially WonderWoman meets Elaine from {{Seinfeld}}.
* YaoiFanboy: [[http://nonadventures.com/2012/11/03/voyeur-than-thou/ God]], actually. And gays cause hurricanes by [[DistractedByTheSexy distracting]] Him from stopping them.
** YaoiFangirl: Wonderella's "[[IHaveThisFriend friend]]" who might or might not have [[http://nonadventures.com/2013/12/21/the-blue-screen-of-destiny/ downloaded gay porn on her computer and given it a virus]].
* YesButWhatDoesZataproximetacineDO: Wonderella's... frank regarding what it does, but not regarding its [[http://nonadventures.com/2007/02/24/merchant-of-menace/ side effects]]
** "Not gettin' paid by the word here"
