Created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, the character of Wonder Woman has been adorning comic books since way back in 1941. Debuting in All Star Comics #8, the iconic Amazon has gone on to have one of the most lengthy runs in comic book history – with Diana’s own Wonder Woman title arriving in 1942 and seamlessly continuing on, bar a mini-break in 1986, to this very day.

While Batman and Superman spent so many decades receiving the plaudits of DC Comics fans, Diana of Themyscira was just as big a deal as her Trinity pals. In fact, right now you could make a very valid argument for Wonder Woman being an even more important player than the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel.

Known as one of the greatest comic book heroes, period, it’s not always been sunshine and rainbows for Diana. Like so many legendary superheroes, there have been certain blips in the road for Wonder Woman. And given the almighty power at her disposal, those darker days have seen some truly shocking acts carried out by this hero.

With that in mind, then, here are eight of the most twisted things that Wonder Woman has done over the years.

8. Super-Sex Costs Lives - The Dark Knight Strikes Again

Never can anybody accuse Frank Miller of not paving his own path in the world of comics. The legendary Miller is a complete and utter genius, yet somebody who often needs pulling back from the edge a little. And one such example of a major Miller misstep is 2001's The Dark Knight Strikes Again.

Attempting to recapture the lightning in a bottle that was his iconic The Dark Knight Returns, Miller returned to his own extremely unique future-set realm of DC Comics. And while the story was clearly a Batman tale, one of the arc's most jarring moments revolved around Wonder Woman and Superman.

In this follow-up offering, Frank explored the notion of Diana and Kal-El having sex. But not content with a panel or two covering this topic, Miller dedicated five pages to an elaborate sex scene which saw volcanoes erupt, oceans rise, and islands have to be evicted.

While Wonder Woman and Superman were getting their rocks off, those mere mortals on the ground below them were having to dodge literal rocks as they struggled to stay alive in the wake of the destruction caused by these two lovebirds.
