Not so super

Wonder Woman’s tenure as a United Nations honorary ambassador came to an abrupt end in December, less than two months after the appointment of the comic book character sparked outcries of protest. Plans had called for the use of Wonder Woman in an empowerment campaign for women and girls into 2017, according to the comic book’s publisher. The superhero’s appointment as UN honorary ambassador to fight for gender equality prompted angry criticism that the choice sent the wrong messages. Nearly 45,000 people signed an online petition asking the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, to reconsider. "Although the original creators may have intended Wonder Woman to represent a strong and independent ‘warrior’ woman with a feminist message, the reality is that the character’s current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit," the petition read.
