When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power
Hello. Hello. I need your help. Really quick, an about me: I’m a 21-year-old graduate student who loves reading and watching science fiction TV shows like Fringe and Eureka and X-Files.
I also have a big emptiness in my soul, which is called, I’m not a fan of superheroes and Marvel and DC and all that jazz.
I’ve never watched the Avengers, or Iron Man, or Hulk, or whatever else you have (except both Catwoman movies and Toby as Spiderman).
I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about superheroes, but none of it interests me at all.
Except Wonder Woman.
There’s just something about her which appeals to me. It may be the fact that she is selfless and kind, and I love seeing bits and pieces of her personality on my dash.
So, here’s where I need your help. I want to start reading/watching/knowing more about Wonder Woman, but haven’t a clue where to begin. Do I read a comic? Which comic? Do I watch a movie or cartoon series? How does that work. I just don’t want to pick something up and be thrown in the middle of a story line I don’t understand, because that puts me off.
Please message me or send me fan mail or reblog this with a suggestion because I’d love to read/watch something as soon as possible and figure out if I want to continue knowing more about a superhero … when I don’t really like them much at all
No pressure, right?
Disclaimer: I haven’t actually read much Wonder Woman. I love her, but I tend to get into comics through movies, so I started with Batman and Superman and came across her in various crossovers, I’ve never actually read her solo series.
If you want to start by watching something, I’ve been enjoying the Justice League animated series. She has some great storylines in that and it’s really fun to watch.
When it comes to comics, I’ve downloaded a few but haven’t read very many yet. It might be worth starting with the New 52 reboot, because (I assume), you get her backstory. That also has her romance with Superman, which people seem to have mixed opinions about. Said mixed opinions seem to extend to the whole of the New 52, tbh - there’s been a lot of controversy about it, lot of titles being cancelled and new ones being introduced. If you do read that Wonder Woman run and find you like it, she also appears in the Justice League run, which sadly was cancelled after 12 or 13 issues, and I believe there’s also a Superman/Wonder Woman comic if you decide you like those two together. She also has a really awesome team up with Batwoman (starting in Batwoman #13), which I have read and can definitely rcommend!
Pre-reboot, I’ve heard very good things about Gail Simone’s run on Wonder Woman (vol 3 #14-44), and also Greg Rucka (vol 3 #195-226), so I would also recommend that (but I have yet to read them, so I don’t know how good they are just for deciding if you like her - maybe just if you find you do want to read more).
I think just for finding out more about her I would go for the Justice League animated series. If she had a solo animated series, I would recommend that, but sadly her only solo series is the live-action one featuring Lynda Carter, which I know nothing about.
Hope this all helps!
(Also if you find yourself getting interested in any other superheroes, especially kickass lady superheroes, I am always happy to offer recommendations)
I’ve learned…that it doesn’t matter what the story is, some things never change…sometimes I fall in battle. Sometimes I die hugely, bravely, saving the city from something that would destroy it. Sometimes it’s a small, ironic, unnoticed death— I die rescuing a child from a fire, or tackling a frightened pickpocket.
The end of the story of Batman is, he’s dead. Because, in the end, the Batman dies. What else am I going to do? Retire and play golf? It doesn’t work that way. It can’t. I fight until I drop. And I will drop.
But until then, I fight.

Someday I’ll be able to hear everything. Every voice. Every heartbeat. Every problem, everywhere on the planet… And I do what I can. But I know it’s never enough. Every time I turn a corner, I hear ten new crisis… I don’t know if any of this makes sense. I just fumble through, trying to do the right thing in each tiny moment… And try not to think about the billions of other people I can’t hear.
