Ronda Rousey, the UCF Fighter currently starring in the Expendables 3, has been thinking long and hard about the state of super-heroines in the comic world. Rousey was a lot of fan-boys' favorite for the role of Wonder Woman. Rousey has gone on the record noting that she would be a better choice for Wonder Woman than Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress chosen to portray the Amazonian princess in the currently shooting Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Rousey's explanation for why super-heroines are the comic universe's weakest link, might create some debate. In an interview with USA TODAY, she notes:
"I'm tired of watching this thing where the woman's superpower is dumbed down. In The Fantastic Four, the woman is the invisible one. In X-Men, (telekinetic) Jean Grey gets tired all the time. Wonder Woman is cool, but she has bulletproof bracelets, while Superman is a bulletproof dude. It's like she has really cool accessories. I think about that a lot."
