The most popular superheroine -- who clearly won the entire year of 2016 -- is the beloved the Amazonian princess, Wonder Woman.
Not only did Wonder Woman, an iconic pillar of strength, power, and courage make her first long-awaited debut on the big screen in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but her character was finally given the mainstream attention she deserves with the announcement of upcoming movies, comics, animated films, and the launch DC Super Hero Girls.
In her 75th year of existence, Wonder Woman took the spotlight front and center and will stay there for years to come as a positive role model for women, young and old.
Although there was no public battle here, Wonder Woman's battle was more of a silent one standing on the heels of modern feminism and core strength.
She took on the current landscape of comic book movies that was mainly focused on white American males, tossed her lasso of truth into the mix, and came out on top.
All of these new projects have been a long time coming for the DC icon, and Diane Nelson, president of DC Entertaiment agrees:
"Wonder Woman is a founding member of the Justice League, and that in fact is why she is so important and noteworthy. She's not just a sidekick. She's not eye candy to say we've got a female superhero. She is a god in herself, a superhero in herself, and right there along with the men, and has been for years."
