Greatest Compliment

The other weekend, Wolverine (my 10-year-old stepson) and I were engaged in a deep discussion about comic book characters, Wonder Woman in particular. I mentioned that I was worried that if Hollywood makes a movie about Wonder Woman, they will ruin her by not casting the right person.

He asked what I meant, and I told him, “Well, sure Wonder Woman is pretty, but she’s so much more than that. She is strong, loyal, honest, has integrity, and believes in doing the right thing.”

Wolverine sat back for a moment, then suggested, “You could play Wonder Woman.”

Awwww….this is officially one of the best, if not the very best, compliment, I have ever received!

    That is a great compliment! I really liked the few Lois Lane comic books from back in the day. I totally agree that I would be worried that they would cast the wrong Wonder Woman person too.
