Wonder Woman is a fictional DC Comics superheroine created by American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston. She first appeared in All Star Comics #8 (cover-dated Jan. 1942). The Wonder Woman title has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986.[1] Her depiction as a heroine fighting for justice, love, peace, and sexual equality has also led to Wonder Woman being widely considered a feminist icon.[2][3][4] Wonder Woman is a warrior princess of the Amazons (based on the Amazons of Greek mythology) and is known in her homeland as Diana of Themyscira. She is gifted with a wide range of superhuman powers and superior combat and battle skills. She also possesses an arsenal of weapons, including the Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and, in some stories, an invisible airplane.

Created during World War II, the character was initially depicted fighting the Axis military forces, as well as an assortment of supervillains. Since then, Wonder Woman has gained a formidable cast of enemies bent on eliminating the Amazon, including classic villains such as CheetahAresand Circe and newer ones like Genocide and The Circle, as well as many gods and monsters from Greek mythology. Wonder Woman has also regularly appeared in comic books featuring the superhero teams Justice Society (from 1941) and Justice League (from 1960).[5]

In addition to the comics, the character has appeared in other media; most notably, the 1975–1979 Wonder Woman TV series starring Lynda Carter, as well as animated series such as the Super Friends and Justice League. Although a number of attempts have been made to adapt the character to live-action film, none have yet emerged. An animated film was released in 2009, with Keri Russell voicing the title role. Attempts to return Wonder Woman to television have also faced problems, with a failed NBC Wonder Woman pilot in 2011 counting among more recent attempts. A pilot for The CW entitled Amazon was announced as being in development in September 2012,[6] but by mid-2013 development had been paused due to the network’s dissatisfaction with the script.[7] Wonder Woman has also been featured in a variety of toys and merchandise.

Matt Smith – The Eleventh Doctor

Geronimo! I once spent a hell of a long time trying to get a gobby Australian to Heathrow airport. No. You’re too short and bossy, and your nose is all funny. There are fixed points throughout time where things must stay exactly the way they are. This is not one of them. This is an opportunity! Whatever happens here will create its own timeline, its own reality, a temporal tipping point. The future revolves around you, here, now, so do good! Brave heart, Clara. There’s something that doesn’t make sense. Let’s go and poke it with a stick.

David Tennant – The Tenth Doctor

Allons-y! Black tie…Whenever I wear this, something bad always happens. New-new-Doctor. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Oh, yes. Harmless is just the word: that’s why I like it! Doesn’t kill, doesn’t wound, doesn’t maim. But I’ll tell you what it does do: it is very good at opening doors! Please, when Torchwood comes to write my complete history, don’t tell people I travelled through time and space with her mother! River, you know my name. You whispered my name in my ear! There’s only one reason I would ever tell anyone my name. There’s only one time I could…

Come on! Well, of course I’m being childish! There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes. It seems you have a very large rat Brigadier—maybe you should employ the services of a very large cat? What?! Come out. And don’t touch anything! You’re a clumsy, ham fisted idiot! Well, my Doctorate is purely honorary and Harry is only qualified to work on sailors. Have a jelly baby. The trouble with computers, of course, is that they’re very sophisticated idiots. They do exactly what you tell them at amazing speed. Even if you order them to kill you. So if you do happen to change your mind, it’s very difficult to stop them from obeying the original order. But not impossible.
