ironymaiden: (heroine: mina)
(This post brought to you by the inevitable SIFF summer cold. I've been on my back all day.)

a thread on [community profile] scans_daily brought up a comparison with Captain America: The First Avenger. I would say that TFA is an origin story, and Wonder Woman is a coming-of-age story. The central tenet of TFA is that Steve is unchanged by the serum, he was always the same hero. Diana, OTOH, isn't fully formed and her understanding of the world is changed by her experiences.

Diana is constantly shown that the world is complex, that your good guy is someone else's bad guy. (this is strengthened by the World War I setting. there are no Nazis to punch here.) I'm impressed that something so heavy could be handled in this film, yet it still is filled with hope and (like the Flash) she's happy and fulfilled by being a hero and does not refuse the call.

If the movie gets you curious about the character and the comics check out the Wonder Woman tags here.

Happy to talk spoilers in the comments.
