Forget the Testosterone, the heroes of old who have dominated the screen since Michael Keaton first donned the Batman suit, with unbelievable results obviously, for there is a true dominant force on offer, a heroine for the age and one that strikes back at the tired old clichés of femininity and valour, of fearlessness and boldness. For in Wonder Woman, there really is a hero that everybody, boy and girl, man and woman alike, can truly admire and one which takes a huge swipe at the misogyny that has been rampant in cinematic heroes for far too long.

If you look at so called Big Two of American comic publishing, then Marvel for some reason has infinitely more heroines in which to glorify than those that live in the D.C. Universe. Even away from Marvel, which seems to have embraced with a lot more heart the reality of women who can hold their own against any of their male counterparts and in many ways are actually far superior to them, after all who would you rather have alongside you in a fight to the death, Susan Storm/Richards or Benjamin Grimm?
