    Default Questions regarding Wonder Woman powers/abilities

    Hello,

    I recently watched the WW 1984 and really liked it. I am excited to see WW 1984. I watched the 1st Wonder Woman movie and enjoyed it. Due to Gal Gadot's portrayal, I felt that Diana is a strong inspiring character.

    Due to this I been trying to learn more about Wonder Woman in the comics and I have some questions about her powers/abilities.

    I have read in some secret file comics that Wonder Woman is vulnerable to piercing weapons. In the current "Rebirth" version of the comics is this still true? Is she now bulletproof? Is she still vulnerable to piercing weapons?

    In her year one comic by Rucka, she jas a grenade blow up in her hand (it looked really cool). So what is the extent of her durability currently?

    The cheating answer is “it depends”. Writers and artists aren’t always on the same page. However iirc Rucka has WW pierced by a bullet in his Rebirth run and then Diana got hit by a ricochet in Priest JL, so as of right now no she is not bulletproof. But she does heal very quickly, almost Wolverine tier. I don’t believe she’s particularly vulnerable to piercing weapons right now.

    So, so shouldn't be able to be cut or pierced by blades & knives? Is Wonder Woman not effected by explosives?

    In Rucka's run she contained a grenade's explosion with her hands. Which makes the piercing and cutting weaknesses all the more nonsensical.

    She's vulnerable to knives, swords, bullets and other piercing weapons but not to fire or blunt force trauma. So she could conceivably survive the heat and concussive force of an explosion, but not necessarily a bomb with a lot of shrapnel in it like the unabomber made, unless she blocked it with her bracelets. It sounds weird but that's how it is.
