I have said how my sis and I used to play bionic Woman as children. I don't know if she even knows this, but Jamie Summers wasn't my number one hero. Her name was Diana , she was tall and had dark hair that never got messed up, and worked for the military as a humble assistant or secretary to a really good looking military man. BUT,(if you don't already know) she was also Wonder Woman!! And she was wonderful! She could dodge raindrops, fly in an invisible jet!, throw her crown at you like a boomerang, and could lasso you with her "lasso of truth". She also had bracelets that deflected bullets! She wore red, white ,and blue with stars on her little outfit. Each color and star meant something, but I don't remember what- it had to do with a series of tests she had to pass in order to become "Wonder Woman!" I don't know why, but I have always loved her, and when the actress who played her was in the movie Sky High, I made sure my kids knew that that was Wonder Woman, THE Wonder Woman. The W.W. they have now in animation is just so wrong in so many ways I don't think I can name them all. But I'll try. First, she FLYS! Wonder Woman does NOT fly! She has an invisible jet, thank you very much. Second, she has run away from home against her mothers will, wrong! She had to EARN being Wonder Woman from her mother (she is an Amazon warrior by the way, thought you should know.) and she is a princess that has taken on the duty of defending mankind.... gheesh. I have tried to set my kids straight on these things, but I guess I will just have to go out and find the old T.V. series on DVD and buy it and make them watch it. Even today... if I am out in the rain I try to dodge the rain drops, but I can't....it's so sad.
