Who She Is: Before she was known as Wonder Woman, she was Diana of Themyscira, the daughter of Zeus and the Queen of the Amazons. Diana was raised by her fellow Amazons, a group of warrior women tasked with fighting Ares. Diana ultimately left the island paradise to prevent Ares from further spreading destruction across the planet. Through her efforts, she became the world's first superhero. 

What She Can Do: Wonder Woman is a highly trained Amazon warrior who has no problem leaping tall buildings in a single bound. As a demigod, her strength appears to be on par with Superman's, and she ages much slower than the average human. She's also got a pair of super cool accessories: her Bracelets of Submission and her magical lasso, which can compel anyone to tell the truth.   

Her Strongest Moment: Telling Ares where he can shove it by defeating him in an epic fight. 

Her Weakest Moment: Giving up the superhero life for the better part of a century following the demise of Steve Trevor. But hey, we all need a little breathing room every now and then.

Who He Is: Traumatized as a young boy by the slaying of his parents, Bruce Wayne grew up determined to stamp out lawlessness in his native city of Gotham.

What He Can Do: Batman is not only a master strategist but also an expert martial artist and detective. He makes up for his lack of powers with a wealth of gadgets, bat-shaped tools, and bat-themed road and air vehicles - as well as just plain wealth. 

His Strongest Moment: Managing to hold his own in a fight against Superman, arguably the most powerful being on Earth. 

His Weakest Moment: One word: Martha.
