Since "Wonder Woman" premiered on June 2 in the United States, the movie has grossed a whooping $86 million worldwide globally. Israeli actress Gal Gadot plays as Diana Prince, born and raised in Themyscira island who aims to become an Amazonian warrior. The movie has received overall positive reviews with Gadot's performance being praised the most. It has proved to a lot of fans that women can be superheroes too.

Following the film's premiere, the Nerdist suggested five different comics that fans can relate to the movie. For those who have watched it, "Wonder Woman" comic by George Perez, Greg Potter, Len Wein, Bruce D Patterson, Tatjana Wood and John Costanza was suggested. "The True Amazon" by Jill Thompson and lettered by Jason Arthur is also one, alongside "Earth One" by Grant Morrison, Yanick Paquette, Nathan Fairbairn, and Todd Cline. Another is "DC Super Hero Girls: Finals Crisis" by Shea Fontana and Yancey Labat.

Moreover, "The Legend of Wonder Woman" comic by Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon was also suggested. Meanwhile, Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto, together with guests Mike Gunzelman and Dion Baia believe that Gal Gadot's costume in the film is not American enough. The anchors complained that her attire lacks the American flag colors red, white and blue.

As Gizmodo points out, in the early days of "Wonder Woman," she donned the American flag as her attire mainly because she was trying to represent the Amazons to America. "Nowadays, sadly, money trumps patriotism," Dion Baia commented during the episode of "Your World with Neil Cavuto." "Especially, recently, I personally feel like we're not really very patriotic, the country, in a certain sense."

Nonetheless, "Wonder Woman" proves that the Amazonian princess can protect the mankind despite the obstacles she went through. The film doesn't even lack excitement and goodwill. Gal Gadot's graceful athleticism delivered spectacular actions through her determination to portray the woman who can save the mankind.
