I have been waiting as long as I can remember for a Wonder Woman movie. I was a huge fan of the Wonder Woman TV show as a child, and I even dressed as Wonder Woman one Halloween. I wanted to be Wonder Woman. I wanted to fly through the air and beat up the boys who made fun of me at school. I wanted to be powerful like Wonder Woman, and not have these disabilities that made me have scary surgeries and painful treatments.
I saw this movie last week and I loved it. It was so wonderfully made, and it represented well the power of women. Finally, women have a hero for them, one that stands on her own, and not just a sidekick of a male superhero.
I may have waited too long for this. But it is better late than never, where I am on the cusp of finishing half of a century of life, I finally get my wish. I get a beautiful superhero that can leap tall buildings, deflect speeding bullets, and wield a sword like a knight.
