I have a 4 year old sister who is obsessed with princesses. The girl just loves them, but having grown up with me in the house, she also loves superheroes. (Jason Todd is her favorite– one time she told me that she wanted him to buy her candy so that she could share it with him. )
Anyway, one day I was wearing a Wonder Woman tshirt, and she asked me why Diana was wearing a crown. “She’s a princess,” I told her. “Her mom is the Queen of the Amazons.”
My little sister freezes for a couple of second, eyes wide, and whispers “Wonder Woman is a princess… and a superhero?”
“She sure is,” I told her.
“I’m going to be a princess AND a superhero too!”
So that’s why I’m really excited about Wonder Woman finally being marketed to little girls, or even just the world at large. It makes a difference, you know? Little girls want to be superheroes too.
