Just recently, the internet received some shocking news revolving the adaptation of Wonder Woman in her solo film and in other movies to come. According to the president of DC Entertainment Diane Nelson, Wonder Woman's iconic invisible jet will not be apart of this adaptation.
Of course, the invisible jet could always show up in future films but Nelson made it sound like we will never get the invisible jet with Gal Gadot's iteration of Wonder Woman. It does make sense as this movie will have a new tone and look and an invisible jet might not fit in.
What is Wonder Woman's Invisible Jet?
The Invisible Plane, otherwise known as the Invisible Jet, is a plane built by the Amazonians capable of becoming invisible. It is loaded with invisible missiles, is very lightweight, and is always available to Wonder Woman whenever she needs it. She can use it if she needs to carry a larger group of people that she cannot just carry.
Also, if she needs to sneak into battle without being seen, the Invisible Jet is the way to go. The jet cannot be seen by the human eye or any type of radar. It is definitely an impressive piece of equipment as it really shows how advanced the Amazonians are.
However, a lot of fans argue whether or not the invisible jet is actually necessary. Sure, she can carry extra people and go into battle without being seen, but those are not good reasons to have an invisible jet on you all the time. Well, there is one reason that a lot of people, especially non-comic book readers tend to forget sometimes.
Wonder Woman Couldn't Always Fly
Before Crisis on Infinite Earths rewrote many of the iconic superheroes, Wonder Woman simply could not fly. Therefore, the invisible jet was a necessity for Wonder Woman as that would be her main way of transportation -- and it's a pretty good one. Crisis on Infinite Earths retroactively enabled Wonder Woman to fly since the very beginning -- when Hippolyta made Diana out of clay and granted her the powers of beauty, power, strength, speed and flight.
When it comes down to it, the invisible jet is necessary if Wonder Woman does not have the ability to fly. If she can fly, the vehicle becomes almost pointless to have. This is why the invisible iet really hasn't been seen that much since Wonder Woman was given flight, aside from the casual reference or joke.
However, with DC Rebirth rebooting the characters back to their normal origins, could Wonder Woman lose her ability to fly?
