I am replacing the main image with one by Alex Ross. This newer image is of a higher quality and it shows the entire anterior aspect of the outfit. JosephSpiral (talk) 12:57, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Great Hera...that is fantastic. Much approval!--Mark Miller (talk) 05:53, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

I noticed this, DC must be going for a 1940s theme to their Wonder Woman art...she looks exactly like Jennifer Jones, a movie actor from that time.2602:30A:2C52:C170:FC52:26DF:B138:6D03 (talk) 13:41, 12 February 2016 (UTC)

I had to replace this image as it fails our fair use policies and never had a fair use rational placed.--Mark Miller (talk) 02:51, 27 December 2016 (UTC)

Immaculate Conception?[edit]

Hi folks - The paragraph about Diana's creation starts "Wonder Woman's origin story relates that she was sculpted from clay by her mother", and "sculpted from clay" is linked to Immaculate Conception. The Immaculate Conception refers to the conception of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and involved the usual human reproductive process (though with certain conditions as created by God). Perhaps the editor was thinking of virgin birth, whereby a woman would become pregnant without sexual contact, usually by some supernatural influence. (The closest parallel to traditional mythology would probably be the creation of Galatea by Pygmalion.) I'm not invested in the Wonder Woman 'verse myself, but if anyone else wants to pursue changing the link, I support it. Her Pegship (talk) 18:07, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Infobox Image[edit]

Please note that the infobox image (File:Wonder_Woman.jpg) is from Ross' website and personal collection; it is not the image used in the cited comic. (File:Wonder_Woman.png) is from the cited source (Justice #5), as it does not have Ross' signature and the colors truer to the characters' costume design. Regardless, I believe (File:Wonder_Woman.png) should be used for the infobox since the colors are more robust. Editors, please relate your thoughts on which of these two images are better suited for the infobox image. DrRC (talk) 21:08, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

It is the original image, I took it directly from the source, removing the text.--(talk) 21:23, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
TriiipleThreat, that's interesting because I did the same, actually removing the text myself. Can you provide a link to your source? DrRC (talk) 21:46, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
I'll upload a link tomorrow.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 21:53, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
No problem, TriiipleThreat. However, don't you think Wonder Woman.png has a better color correction? That's the reason I'm inclined to use that over Wonder Woman.jpg. The latter image has a faded contrast and muted colors. It looks like a lower quality scan and is not as robust in color as Wonder Woman.png. DrRC (talk) 21:56, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
Actually, I think the opposite. The colors of the .jpg are more brilliant, the .png look muted to me.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 22:10, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
Ok, but I do disagree, as the .jpg version looks faded and muted, and it is not as brilliant in color as the .png version. DrRC (talk) 22:57, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Editors, please see both the .png version, File:Wonder_Woman.png, and the .jpg version, File:Wonder_Woman.jpg. Your opinions on which of these two images is better suited for the infobox is greatly appreciated. DrRC (talk) 22:59, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Honestly, I like them both and either would work as far as I'm concerned. I will say that the .png file seems a bit red on her legs, whereas the jpg has more natural flesh tones. --Tenebrae (talk) 00:20, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

I have no knowledge of the comics or provenance of the pictures, but I do prefer File:Wonder Woman.jpg; the .png version looks like she has a sunburn. FWIW Her Pegship (talk) 01:14, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

I feel like the .jpg has more natural skin color and better depth in the hair.★Trekker (talk) 07:14, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

@DrRC: Here is the original.--TriiipleThreat (talk) 12:26, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

I appreciate the editors for expressing their opinions. I can see how the .png version Wonder Woman looks like she has a sunburn, as was pointed out above. Thanks, TriiipleThreat for providing the link. I believe the scan I had was not true to the original source with its colors. The .png version is surely the better one to use for the infobox.

A couple IP editors have changed the lede to use the word "Superheroine". Although the word "superhero" is non-gender specific, I can see where some people would want to make the change. However, since they are IP editors, I thought I'd throw it up here for comment rather than reverting it again. Thoughts? Ckruschke (talk) 17:18, 21 June 2017 (UTC)Ckruschke
