#ComicBytes: Forgotten abilities of Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman is an A-List star of DC Comics. Known for her superhuman strength, combat skills, and magical weaponry, she has been an essential part of major DC events since the Golden Age. However, some of her abilities were forgotten as her stories focused more on her core powers. With another Wonder Woman movie on the cards, it's time to bring back these abilities.
In some iterations of her story, Wonder Woman is actually immune to fire. When Goddess Hestia granted the Amazonian princess powers related to fire (which also contributed to Diana's Lasso of Truth), she made Wonder Woman capable of resisting fire. This ability protects her from normal as well as mystical fires such as the flames of Ares and Superman's heat vision.
Wonder Woman takes the meaning of multilingual to another whole level. She is capable of speaking every language. And this goes far beyond Spanish, German, and other international languages. For instance, she can speak to Cavemen and Martians in their language. The ability may not single-handedly help her defeat an enemy, but it does make her a superior communicator than her super friends.
Her ability to speak every language extends to the members of the animal kingdom as well. Although her stories have not shown this power for many years, Wonder Woman knows how to communicate with animals, both verbally and telepathically. The exact origin of this power differs from era to era, but usually, it originates from the blessing of Artemis, the Goddess of the Hunt.
Astral projection is not a common power. But, it is super cool, and Wonder Woman has it. Her ability to project an astral form of herself has not been showcased much (for reasons unknown). But it should be brought to the fore immediately. Previously, she has used her astral form to speak with Steve Trevor and to visit Hell for rescuing Artemis.
Wonder Woman's healing capabilities have been shown in the comics as well as the movies. However, she has a particular ability that makes her healing powers far more superior than many others. Thanks to Goddess Demeter's Post-Crisis blessing, Diana can merge with the earth to heal instantly. However, this is a sacred power and should be used only in cases of extreme emergency.
