Fausta is a Nazi working directly for the Fuhrer to capture Wonder Woman and maybe take her out once and for all. However, when the Nazi in charge doesn’t believe Wonder Woman’s powers aren’t anything more than an illusion, Fausta might realize there are things better than being a woman in a Nazi’s world.
Much better than episode 1, this feels like an actual Wonder Woman adventure with a decent amount of action, all women being better in general than all men (especially Nazis) and Wonder Woman frees herself from being her own damsel in distress and kicks some Nazi butt. This is actually a common theme from the comics, Wonder Woman gets captured, frees herself, and no man can get in the way with rescuing her or the like. Steve Trevor even tries very hard to rescue her but isn’t able to find her before she rescues herself, essentially.
I really like Lynda Carter in this, which makes sense since she’s the title character, but she really shines in this role. She’s a happy person and Wonder Woman, even when she’s tied up, always has a smile on her face, and hope in her heart that she can get the job done. One of the greatest superheroes of all time is captured perfectly by Carter
+10: A much better introduction to Wonder Woman than the last episode was, very enjoyable and entertaining
