Abstract
As feminist and postcolonial scholars have shown, representations of heroism are frequently related to gendered and imperialist ideologies. Within the post-crisis Wonder Woman comic series (circa 1 986-now), while the Amazon representation frequently subverts these ideologies, the representation of the Trinity (or Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman) generally mediate this subversion and instead re-articulate a traditional gendered discourse of nation and empire.
