There's nothing like watching a woman bench press 200lbs (90kg) without breaking a sweat! When you think of Wonder Woman what do you see? She's intelligent, beautiful, brave, strong, powerful, honorable and selfless. The character is a symbol for both men and women... The same thing can be said for Superman. Finally, on June 23rd, 2017 we'll see the Amazonian warrior in action! But, there's a downfall to all of this.
Some fans are not pleased with the casting choice of model Gal Gadot (having a minor role in Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman. Which I can see why. Still, I'm sure she'll do a good job, but for now we must play the waiting game until March 25, 2016 when Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is released.
This list is dedicated to the real life Wonder Women within the bodybuilding and cross fit community. These women look like living, breathing comic book characters. They're well respected in their professions and they put in some serious hard work. Most importantly, they do what they love!
