Wonder Woman’s Powers: As the Superheroine Turns 60, She Maintains Her Grip on the Psyche. Yes. I admit it. When I was a little boy, I used to twirl around and pretend that I could change into Lynda Carter… I mean Wonder Woman.

Whew…thank God I’m not the only one! My brother and I used to cut up cardboard wrapping-paper tubes to make bracelets. (Hmm, maybe I’ve said too much…)

I also twirled around. Not only if I were playing outside, or alone in my room, but even if I were out with my mom at the grocery store. But I wanted to be Wonder Woman, not Lynda. I swear!

I also ran r-e-a-l-l-y slow, thinking I had bionics.

Just read the article. Cool. Phil Jimenez is one of my favorite comic book artists, so I was glad when he started writing and drawing WW. I’ve been picking it up ever since (I think there’ve been four issues by him, so far).

Phil is out, and *very cute*. I got a sketch from him at a comic convention a few years ago; he did Donna Troy (aka Wonder Girl). Yay!

Yes, I too twirled. I’ll even go one further and admit to at one time having a crush on Lyle Wagonner. But sheesh, I remember the first time I heard the theme song to the Lynda Carter TV version: “…in her satin tights, fighting for her rights…”. I was like, what, eight years old and going, “Man, that’s *really* lame.”

My favorite: “Get us out from under, Wonder Woman!” Man, that comma was crucial, wasn’t it?

But what the hell does “Get us out from under” mean?
