List Rules
Vote up the coolest things you never knew about Wonder Woman.

For this list we give you 20 facts about Wonder Woman that are both fun and fascinating. It's time Wonder Woman got her due on the big screen. A solo movie for one of DC's biggest characters is finally on track to hit theaters in 2017. Somehow there hasn't been a single live action Wonder Woman film to date. There's been a successful show, and a successful animated film, but not a live action film adaption of the most iconic woman in comics. It's been a long time coming.

Whether you support Gal Gadot or (director) Zack Snyder or not, you have to admit you were a little excited when you learned she's be part of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But even though her star-spangled outfit and lasso of truth are well known pieces of pop culture few actually know much about Wonder Woman herself. She's an iconic part of our culture, but the masses don't know much past the Invisible jet or the tiara.

So we've decided to compile a list of the important but lesser known facts and trivia within Wonder Woman's rich comic book history. Just who is Wonder Woman? How did the character come about? What exactly are her powers? What's with the lasso and all the tying up? This is your crash course on the Princess of the Amazons, the (sometimes) Goddess of War, Wonder Woman!
