Where did the inspiration come from? Well, you just need to look at the latest movies to see just how many superhero movies are showing right now. Besides, I have always been a fan of comics, so it’s really a natural fit.
The latest addition to the Marvel universe, such a strong female character has been long overdue. Just as Angela Merkel is to the world at the moment. Chancellor Merkel has got the qualities of Wonder Woman, most importantly being compassionate. As many countries in the Eurozone were closing their borders (metaphorically), she instead welcomed refugees from Syria openly, despite strong opposition from some of Germany’s residents. Of course, I don’t have to mention strength, Wonder Woman is physically strong, just as Merkel leads a major world economy. She may not have Gal Gadot’s looks, but she is Wonder Woman in every other way.
