Iowa’s Favorite Female Superhero Is…
I. Love. Superheroes.
Seriously, I have gone to see every new Marvel and DC movie in theaters for several years now (except Doctor Strange, which I somehow missed). I have quite a few favorites, since there are so many to choose from, but for me, no superhero movie can touch Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman, which came out last year, really moved me. I know it sounds kind of lame, but seeing a movie where the main character is a powerful woman who is also kind, tough, smart, beautiful, AND likable brought me to tears. She kicked SO much butt. I absolutely love how Wonder Woman was portrayed in the film, and Gal Gadot was the perfect woman for the role.
Not surprisingly, Wonder Woman was the number one most popular female superhero in the U.S. That's according to a study from Frontier, who looked at Google Trends data to determine their winner. Supergirl and Jessica Jones came in second and third, which makes sense when you consider the fact that they are both the subjects of popular TV shows. But, none of those women came in first place for us here in Iowa. The most popular superhero in our state is Batgirl.
