Image Development

Wonder Woman was always depicted as a beautiful, strong, female heroine but as times changed, so did her character. New artists decided that a face-lift was necessary and transformed her sleek and clean image into something much more extreme. She use to look like a somewhat average figured woman. She was voluptuous, strong, intelligent, and beatuiful, and those were qualities and traits that many women could relate to and see in themselves, may be even look up to. That, however, didnt remain the case. Opinions change, and body image did as well. Society no longer wanted to watch the average women do things, they wanted more. Men tend to responde to sex. We all know the phrase, "Sex sells" and that is true. Wonder Women was an iconic, sexy symbol that needed to be updated so that they following generation of readers, males and females, could see something that would shock and awe them. Sexy women tend to grab attention and hence the new and improved Wonder Women was needed and appeared. She was now faster, stronger, more busty, more voluptous, and much more thin and beautiful. Thats what we wanted, a new image to go ga-ga over.
Wonder Women represents much more than big boobs and big butt, she is strong, intelligent and capable of many things and if she were reall im sure she would be more than loved. So i dont want to take anything away from what was or has become of the character, i just want to say that if we critized this character then lets also look to other, including male characters and see hoe they look. Because although people may not have the same bodies as these extreme characters, they want to and asked to be surrounded by them.
