Woman is a member of an all-female tribe of Amazons (based on the
Amazons of Greek mythology) who was created by Marston as a "distinctly
feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of
love, peace, and sexual equality to 'a world torn by the hatred of
men.'" Her powers include super strength, super speed, stamina, and
flight. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art
of tactical warfare. She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a
natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as
an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her
Lasso of Truth (which forces those bound by it to tell the truth), a
pair of indestructible bracelets, and an invisible plane, which was
later replaced with an ability to fly unaided.
