* AllMythsAreTrue: Wonderella is the child of a generic vaguely Greco-Roman Godhead (manifested as a shiny white sphere). She's also met Jesus (and his father, totally different from the aforementioned Godhead), Satan, various other demons including Moloch, Odin, Thor, Gaia, Santa (she killed him!), Krampus, and Faeries (her sister rules them, apparently). Figures of conflicting theological origins are A-OK.

''[[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, she can't fly but she can "totally jump hella high", [[FlightStrengthHeart when tied up she can hork up a giant octopus]], she can [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/06/28/balance-of-flower/ tell plants to die.]] and she can [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/04/26/power-couple/ curl up in a perfect ball when traumatized.]] Also has a rarely-used invisible blimp, and the tendency to make prejudiced remarks (especially about gay men, but pretty much every minority group gets a turn).
