“Imagination is just what others use to get things they can't understand into their heads. Rarely – if ever – do they actually fit there.
-Hermes”
Brian Azzarello, Wonder Woman, Volume 1: Blood

“Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power. Not wanting to be girls, they don't want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women's strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.”
William Moulton Marston

Leigh Bardugo
“A different kind of knight, one who'd chosen to protect the girl the world wanted to destroy; one born to slay dragons, but maybe to befriend them, too.”
Leigh Bardugo, Wonder Woman: Warbringer

“Active or ambitious women were not only rare but often evil. Wonder Woman flipped this paradigm by embodying the strength, assertiveness, and independence usually associated with bad girls and villains in a positive heroic light. The Golden Age Wonder Woman was a blatant rejection of the good girl/bad girl binary and even offered a critique of the good girl role.”
Tim Hanley, Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World's Most Famous Heroine

Jill Lepore
“And that's the point! Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force strength power. Not wanting to be girls, they don't want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women's strong qualities have become despised because of their week ones.”
Jill Lepore

“Even bullying was important to Wonder Woman, and in Sensation Comics #23 she stopped a gang who were picking on a young boy, showed the head bully the error of his ways and learned about his home situation, spoke to his father about his abusive tendencies, and then helped the father get a job in a wartime factory. She always took the time to get to the root of the problem.”
Tim Hanley, Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World's Most Famous Heroine

Jill Lepore
“...we must be tolerant with ourselves and allow ourselves some deviations from the straight line we set up to follow. Even more we must allow others the same prerogative.”
Jill Lepore, The Secret History of Wonder Woman

“There were no more heroes. Kennedy was dead, shot by an assassin in Dallas. Batman and Robin were dead... Superman was missing...”
Robert Mayer

Leigh Bardugo
“Maybe it feels easier that way, just being invisible instead of always worrying what people think of you.”
Leigh Bardugo, Wonder Woman: Warbringer

Michael R. Underwood
“Dear Lynda Carter, Please be with me in my hour of need. Especially if I don't have to twirl around to get my powers.”
Michael R. Underwood, Geekomancy

Gail Simone
“If loss makes you doubt your belief in justice, then you never truly believed in justice at all.”
Gail Simone, Wonder Woman, Vol. 3: The Circle

Brian Azzarello

Brian Azzarello

Jill Lepore
“The historian, on the contrary, cannot experiment and can rarely observe. Instead, the historian has to collect his own evidence, knowing, all the while, that some of it is useless and much of it unreliable."
-Professor Charles Homer Haskins”
Jill Lepore

“We don't need Batman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman or Superman or any other superheroes,

Leigh Bardugo, Wonder Woman: Warbringer

Greg Rucka
“LOIS: The personal stuff you've been dealing with, did you feel like you needed someone to catch you? Were we not there for you?

DIANA: (pauses) You know how when people talk of depression, they talk of it both coming in storms and coming stealthily? So that, for many, it is the status quo, before they realize... that we lose our self-awareness in that. So I can't... I can't fault the people who love and care for me for not seeing what I did not myself see.

I think, again, when we have our moments of clarity, it is very easy to brush past them, to let the status quo continue. It can be very difficult and sometimes painful to turn and confront them. The only analogy I can think of is chronic pain. When that pain has been with you for so very long, it is background noise. And one is not aware of it until something happens that places it into relief.

LOIS: But you're not talking about physical pain?

DIANA: No. And I am not certain I am talking about emotional pain either. It has been difficult for me to untangle. I think there is a psychological element to it. I think it is important--and I think as a reporter that you would be inclined to agree--that we question those basic assumptions that we often decide are true.

I have found myself in a position where a great deal of what I took as true no longer seems accurate.

That may be because I have changed. That may be because the world has changed. Or it may be because I was mistaken. And it is that last that is the most concerning. I put great stock in truth--I think that's one of the reasons why we get along.”
Greg Rucka

“Even in the cartoon world, Wonder Woman in all her glory never raised children, stabilized a husband, or cleaned and managed a house. Wonder Woman faced only criminals, not housework horrors.”
Don Aslett, Is There Life After Housework?

Stewart Stafford
“A superhero is just an ordinary person who has found a better way to mask their human frailties.”
Stewart Stafford

“What is life like for a woman?
A solitary destiny for a naive one,
The strength and desire as displayed,
Vulnerability and sorrow concealed,
through struggles, walked willingly.
A Phenomenal pace of victory.
Explicitly she is an inspiration,
A Wonder Woman she is.”
Vylaa Moin
