And here is my final version...for now. I'm sure every time I look at it I'll find something else to add or fix. But for now I think it's good enough to post.
Think of it as a little tribute to some of my comic book artist heroes.
I seriously doubt there is someone who doesn't know who Wonder Woman or Captain America is.
If you are one of those people perhaps you are the reason of what is wrong with the world today.
So here, educate yourself...Wonder Woman is a DC Comics superheroine created by William Moulton Marston. She first appeared in All Star Comics #8 (December 1941). As the princess of the amazons her powers include superhuman strength, flight, super-speed, super-stamina, and super-agility. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare. She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her Lasso of Truth, which forces those bound by it to tell the truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets and a tiara which serves as a projectile.
Captain America first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941), from Marvel Comics' 1940s predecessor, Timely Comics, and was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Captain America was the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a frail young man who was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an experimental serum in order to aid the United States war effort. Captain America wears a costume that bears an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon.
And yes, they are both good guys...woman. Why would they fight? I don't know. Since either character didn't have a similar version on different comic book companies it seemed a perfect match. It appears WW was the DC Comics response to Marvel's Cap. America during World War II.
If you ask me, I think Wonder Woman would kick Captain America's ass in a real fight. After all she IS a goddess. Don't get me wrong the Cap. it's one of my favorite comic book characters since I was a kid, but a Demi-goddess vs. a super-human...Demi-goddess would win.
Once again thanx for stopping bye my Blog, cheers.
