Duh, right? This superhero is iconic for a reason, and it's because she's an incredible symbol of strength for women everywhere. She comes from a ladies-only island, where they value brawn as well as honesty and kindness. When she joins the Justice League, her compassion brings a fresh and humanizing voice to the (mostly) boys' club. Gal Gadot is set to play Diana in the upcoming Justice League film, but she doesn't even make it into the title. Her origin story is long overdue, and she deserves more than being just a minor role in a Batman/Superman flick.
