A lens narrowing past whatever career profession Diana might hold daily or even how a Steve Trevor bond will exist one aspect of the Amazonian Warrior has been the all caps personification on a warrior.

Wonder Woman on "Justice League Unlimited", as voice acted by Susan Eisenberg, was an into-the-fray battler that could superpower fight on the flanks of Superman if need be, which ws quite often.
