DC Comics Icons Wave 5 Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman celebrates her 75th in 2017. I think that probably answers the question of why we haven’t seen her in Icons until now. As far as Super Hero Icons go, Wonder Woman is probably at least in the top 3 of all time, certainly at least one of the top 3 that if you asked anyone, the name of three heroes…she’s in that short list. That said, we definitely have waited too long to get Wonder Woman, holding her for the anniversary celebration or not. I’m glad that in the span of a month or so, Icons has given us two, and they are definitely different enough to warrant a look at each!
