Her height was 6'2 a while ago in DC Database website and now she is 5'10? Shorter than Barbara Gordon, Huntress and Batwoman?

@jayc1324: Yeah, but Barbara, Huntress and Batwoman is 5'11. It is kinda weird that Wonder Woman is shorter than them

No she is 6ft2. It was shown in her recent rebirth series.

Barbara should be WAY shorter than 5'10". Her year one had her failing to meet the height and weight requirements to join the GCPD because she's so small. I wouldn't trust the "official" database of any comic company.

That is a wiki. It is edited by people who aren't official DC writers. Greg Rucka just recently showed how tall Diana is when they landed in man's world. Before being locked up a photo of her was taken and her height was shown as 6'2 and this was shown multiple times. Steve Trevor even commented about the other amazons being strong 6 foot tall women.

The only reason I think is because gal her actress claims she's 5'10. By she's suppose to be 6'0-6'2.

EDIT: Nvm, she was said to be 6'2 in her barefeet. In the New Character guide, made in October 2016, she is still listed as 6 ft even. I guess Rucka may have wanted Diana to be 6'2 but DC was just lazy in updating. :P

  • I prefer that height for Diana..Because i always thought it was weird that she was usually shown to be the same height if not taller then Batman whose supposed to be a legit 6 foot 2.
  • I get that shes supposed to be big and strong like an Amaoznian warriors princess but in some incarnations ive seen her look a little to tall and statue..Almost bordering on 6 foot 6...
  • Imo Wonder Women looks her best when shes portyed as a reasonably tall 5 foot 10-6 foot.. Muscular and strong looking but still somewhat petite with noticeably feminite qualities.

@jumpstart55: Hmmm i prefer 6 foot 2(fits better as Alpha Amazonian), but well i'm over 6 foot 3 so that's maybe the reason for that :)

Yeah, I know 2 girls both 6'2+ and just look so lanky.. even though they're perfect weights for their height, their torsos and legs and arms are soooo long.. Looks kind of odd, then again the same could be said about a 6'7-8 male as well.

Perhaps they made her 6'2 because that's the standard height for male superheroes? Just like how 5'11 is a really popular height for female superheroes. Maybe a way of making her more imposing.

It may be only a one inch different, but the most I'd like Diana to be 6'1 at most.
