Every Friday, were going to try to bring you a brief guide on a different comic book character or story, because we all know the world of comics can be a confusing place, and we want to help.

There seems to be a lot of fans of Wonder Woman here on Tumblr, but if you’ve been wanting to find out more about Diana Prince, Themyscira, and The Amazons, we humbly present to you:

A comiXology Guide to Wonder Woman!

Fierce, bold, and confident, Diana, Amazon Warrior Princess of Themyscira, is both feared and respected by the denizens of the DC Universe. 

Wonder Woman’s first appearance came in 1941 within the pages of All Star Comics #8 but her origins really were developed in the early issues of DC’s Sensation Comics. In these classic comics, you see the introduction of some of WW’s best known tools like the Invisible Jet and her Magic Lasso. In May 1942, only 5 months after her first appearance, Wonder Woman was the star of her own solo comic.

If all you want is one must-read example of a great modern take on Wonder Woman, look no further than gailsimone's story, The Circle, which brings the heroine face-to-face with talking gorilla warriors, neo-nazis, and the vulnerability of being powerless.

Finally, the rebooting of the DCU with The New 52 saw the combining of comic legends Brian Azzarello and cliffchiang bringing their much acclaimed talents to the Wonder Woman comics. While the New 52 has seen its share of successes and failures, Wonder Woman has consistently been one of the brightest stars in the new universe.  

"(different anon) spoilers: from what I've read, yes, she did share a bed with her (female) cousins and (female) handmaidens and moon boy (male, obviously). But let's give a small estimate to these numbers: 2 cousins, 2 handmaidens, herself, and moon boy. Five girls to one guy? I don't think there was anything else meant to be implied other than yes, she's bisexual."

"In the end, Captain America does not make the heroic sacrifice, thus further proving that Black Widow can handle the emotional weight of being a lead character. As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice."

Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass. 

Oh hell yes.  For one glorious moment this movie was going to be the utter best thing ever made.  And then…. well it was still cool but such a disappointment we didn’t get unexpected kick ass over 40 woman. 

Did we ever even find out what happened to the counsel member?

We, too, thought for a glorious moment that Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a movie where every female character was a secret badass. 

"Margaery is more proeminent on the show than on the books, so it's hard to gather evidence for any theory. I think her scenes on the show were meant to confirm the especulation about her being gay or bi, but I think there's still too little information for us to know which."

Interesting. I am glad they expanded her role on the show because she’s probably my second favorite character. I hope that as her character develops we learn more about her.

"Is Margaery Tyrell gay? I am 100% into this theory (bonus if it's confirmed canonical) but my google searches aren't turning up evidence besides the fact that she shared a bed with her handmaidens and cousins, and wasn't interested in the Kettleblacks (but they're sketchy weirdos, who could blame her). Is there any more evidence for her being gay than her being bisexual or straight? I want my full list of talking points when I go to defend this headcanon."

I have not read the books so I am only going from the show. It has not been confirmed outwardly but I’m 100% certain Margaery Tyrell is queer. My headcanon is that she’s bisexual, but she could be gay. From the show it’s very clear that she has same-sex attractions. I hope they confirm it in some capacity on the show soon, but so far it’s pretty obvious.

So it looks like my inbox has been eating some asks/not telling me when I have new asks. Yikes! If I’ve left you hanging I’m so sorry! I’m going to go through and try to catch up on some of these.
