Superman Doesn't Have These Problems

Wonder Woman doesn't always have it easy.

If you missed it, Alex Di Campi did some amazing work writing Wonder Woman: Sensation Comics (these panels are from #20). It sounds like some of our favorite heroines are getting a little fed up with the way they're treated in comparison to their male counterparts... (via)

If you're ever feeling self-conscious, just remember that Wonder Woman has cellulite, too.

The entire comic is great, but Di Campi used these panels as a rare opportunity to address the double-standards we apply to our heroes. Of course these characters aren't real, but if we do it to the characters we love, isn't it possible we'll end up doing it to people in real life as well?

I love it, it's deadpool-like, but for a bigger and deeper issue which applies in today's society. Kudos to the writers for this lol
@buttetflyblu yaaaaaasss! It's nice to see that even our female superhero's have things that bother them about their body and how they lightheartedly deal with it. # Empowering!
I have this comic book, and it's one of my favorite:) she's by far my favorite heroine
@ButterflyBlu @jibarito @KarvaHevner @loftonc16 @karencorchado heck yeah! I love how real she is... just kind of exasperated with how ridiculous it all is. Does it kind of remind you of some of the actresses who have been getting more vocal about this lately? I'm thinking of like... ScarJo on the Avengers tour "why do you get the deep character question and I get the rabbit food question" kind of thing. @purplem00n23 I absolutely recommend it! Alex Di Campi is an amazing writer and everything she does is really progressive and entertaining- which is the BEST combo imo ^_^
