Stop film and discuss.

From "The Seduction of the Innocent," the book that more or less on its own generated the need for a comic code...

"Superwoman (Wonder Woman) is always a horror type. She is physically very powerful, tortures men, has her own female following, is the cruel, 'phallic' woman. While she is a frightening figure for boys, she is an undesirable ideal for girls, being the exact oppposite of what girls are supposed to want to be."

That passage eats its own tail like Oroboros. I'm deeply impressed.
