In Wonder Woman Secret Files (late 90's) she was 5'11 and 135 pounds. I recently saw an issue of Superman or Action Comics and she looked taller than Superman who is 6'3" ...

According to http://www.dcuguide.com/who.php?name=wonderwomanga, she may have been 5'8" and 122 lbs.

5,11 when she first appear. In some alt worlds she 6,3 without the boots.Well right now she might be taller than Superman but she is wearing heels. Which could be the reason but i highly doubt it seeing how small the heels are.

She is wearing HIGH heels boots. Those got to add at least 2 or 3 inches to her overall height!

The proportions that Cliff Chang had given her in the comic certainly suggest that she is a big woman :D

Wonder Woman has steadily been growing over the years to keep her in line as taller than the average female of the general population. She is now 6 foot+. It has been said she is taller than Superman but that is rarely shown, Justice League: New Frontier is on of the few instances of this. Remember, she is an Amazon & 'historically' they are taller than a typical female.

Pre-52 Donna was a smaller version of Diana due to all the trauma experienced from the 1000s of tragic lives Dark Angel put her through.

I like the idea of Wonder Woman being taller than Supes. Really liked how Darwyn Cooke illustrated this in 'New Frontier'

i think she should be 5'8 to 5'10, its easier to cast an actress for that height. while in the 6'0 range its too hard.

6 footer. The good old 5'12 as of now.

And for comparison Gal's suppose to be 5'10, though some people have said she's only 5'9. Still tall though.

I agree with the 6 footer comments, but...saying that she's just 135 pounds it's everything but realistic...even if we are talking about the current Wonder Woman that is one of the skiniest versions of her, ever, she still weights way more than 135 pounds...and if we are talking about Brian Azarello's Wonder Woman, then, 135 pounds would be if we cut her legs off.

@bat_girl_cc: I think it can. She's typically drawn to just be skinny with somewhat of a decent rack. Sometimes she has abs. Depending on who draws her. :p. 135 seems pluauisble given how she's typically not drawn to be all intimidating or muscular like Clark or Bruce.

yeah, but still...i'm about 6"1 and 140 pounds, and i'm pretty skinny...i ofen go to the gym but because i have a very acelarated metabolism, i can't get big, i would have to eat twice as i currently eat, and i already eat alot...anyway, the point is, a woman of Diana's structure would be way heavier than me...she would have to weight 180 pounds, at least.

Dude, no-one is saying that she's not hot, she is, but her weight it's unrealistic, that's all.

If she existed in real-lfe she would be considered by the majority as very-hot, but she would not weight just 135 pounds, that's for sure.

But, take a look at the build of Ronda Rousey. She weighs 135, but is shaped as Wonder Woman is often drawn; although she's only 135, she looks very bulky and muscular.

Ronda Rousey is only 5' 72 though. That same weight would have to be stretched out if she was 6 foot or so. That's why BMI differs depending on height, a short bulky guy could have the same weight as a tall guy, but the tall guy might look skinny in comparison.

Sure, but adding those few inches and Ronda would look approximately like Wonder Woman in that Golden Age scan or even slightly thicker; Ronda would have to look a bit skinny, but she doesn't; Wonder Woman would look that thin (as implied), if she were around 6'3'' or taller with Ronda's frame, but not at about 6'0''; it's sort of a close stretch. The female body frame is very different from a male's body frame in terms of expected bulk and muscle mass appearance.

Ronda's body it's alright, because she's tall, the thing is woman that train alot and do fighting etc, normally are muscular, have small boobs and small ass, even Serena Williams who is a tennis player makes a regular guy look tinny in size...in short they do stuff like man and end up looking more like man than other woman, but Ronda is far from being too big, i still find her attractive, woman that do cultural stuff tho, which purpose it's only getting bigger and bigger and more muscular those are not attractive, they make big guys look like skinny girls.

Sorry about bumping this.. but is Wonder Woman still 6 ft? It's weird.. tbh she never's drawn as tall as her other JL counterparts nowadays.. always give me slightly shorter vibes.. I also ask this because according this article title from 2 months ago, it claims she's now 6'2.. I didn't read all of it though..

Wonder Woman was pretty tall in the cartoon. I think she should be in the 6 feet range. Amazons suppose to be huge anyways I think.

Thanks. :D.

I just want to say she is in full Wonder Woman garb and she is almost always drawn some sort of heeled boot so she could still be the 6'0 she was given in the beginning during Azz's run but 6'2-3 in heels. In fact, I believe that's the estimates she was given for height wise in no platform heeled shoes.

Oh, yes, that's a very good point; she was probably in her heels.

She should be above 6'1" and not more than 6'4".

Her weight should be not more than 140 and not less than 125.

She's supposed to have a supermodel physique. Those who want her built like a tank just didn't get it. I might even accuse them as Marvel fans and WW haters at the same time.

Her strength is magical. She doesn't need to be built like a male bodybuilder to be superstrong.

Given those specifics I get a weird picture of body wise, maybe a little bit more someone Maria Sharpova (6'2) or Karlie Kloss (she's 6'1-6'2 and a supermodel) with these specifics.
