The bulk of the New 52 coverage wraps up today, so in celebration let us take one last look at a DC heroine in the form of Cassandra Sandsmark, Wonder Girl.
In presenting Wonder Girl, we also celebrate our first repeat Cosplay Friday model in Alisa, who we previously featured dressed as Dawn.
If you are one of those people who hear Wonder Girl and only think of Donna Troy, here is the scoop on young Cassandra (via Wikipedia):
Cassandra is the third character to be called Wonder Girl; the second being Donna Troy, following the earlier stories of a young Wonder Woman using the name Wonder Girl. Cassandra is the daughter of Dr. Helena Sandsmark, (a noted archaeologist with whom Wonder Woman was working) and the Greek god Zeus. During a fight with a Doomsday clone and another battle with Decay, she created a costume and used magical accoutrements (the sandals of Hermes and the gauntlet of Atlas) to help Wonder Woman, much to her mother’s horror. Cassandra later had the opportunity to ask Zeus for a boon, and requested real superpowers. Zeus granted her request, but gave Dr. Sandsmark the ability to deactivate them. Dr. Sandsmark, however, reluctantly accepted her daughter’s wish to be a superhero and rarely if ever uses this ability.
