Boss Logic

A superhero is only as great as the obstacles she overcomes. Now while the Princess of Themyscira rarely comes across any baddy whom she can't tame with a toss of her lasso, there are still those who manage to leave their mark.

Throughout her illustrious history, one individual - or cat - Diana has always crossed paths with is the notorious Cheetah.

Starting all the way from the Golden Age to now, the sharp clawed evil doer has remained a thorn in Wonder Woman's side. After trading blows with the iconic hero for over half a century, she is finally set to get the live action treatment in Patty Jenkins' upcoming Wonder Woman sequel - Wonder Woman 1984.
