    The list seems to be talking about overall history. So that list is not accurate. And even if we go by current version only. This decade Diana has fought supergirl more than once and won. Carol danvers, barda and starfire dont have feats that suggest current Diana can't beat them.

    She has access to them, but she's not a magic hero. She has a foot in that world, but she's no Zatanna. She is a great conduit for magic and a perfect cipher for new readers to get into that side of the universe, but just flying out into deep space for fun? That's outside Diana's usual purview as far as I've read.

    Well, if they're talking MCU Carol, then yeah, sure. MCU Carol is stupid powerful by design. Like, "make Stormbreaker Thor look quaint" powerful.

    As far as comics go? Outside of plot device characters like Spectre or Darkseid.....I'm not sure if DC has anyone who could consistently take Diana in a "best of five" matchup. Mages and reality warpers like Zatanna, Fate, and Firestorm have the best odds but if they don't immobilize Diana within the first second or two, they'll probably lose. All Diana has to do is close the distance between them and they're finished, so it all comes down to whether Zee can say "Pots" before Diana gets her hands around Zee's mouth. Same goes for Fate and 'Storm; hard to cast spells and bend atoms when you've got Diana smashing your face with a shield.

    All the other super strong brawlers like Clark don't have Diana's skill, and few can equal her experience. I think that even if Diana's raw strength was just as Golden Age "throw a tank across a battlefield" levels her sheer fighting prowess and equipment would still win her a fight against Superman more than 50% of the time. And Superman's my guy; I don't chump rank him.

    As for other characters......Marvel's Thor has better odds than most, I think. I figure he'd win half his fights against Diana at least, if not more.

    Actually, one guy who "might" have good odds against Diana is post-Annihilation era Richard "Nova" Rider. He was a full on cosmic level powerhouse, and his powerset seems like it'd be especially effective against Diana. Normal Nova (either Rich or Sam) wouldn't stand a chance but Nova Prime Richard Rider, with the Worldmind whispering in his ear and the entire Nova force at his disposal? I think he'd actually pull off a "best of five" as long as he had room to move.

    Rogue, obviously, would have a chance as long as she could make physical contact. But that's a pretty cheap win condition, and one not easily managed if Diana's aware of her opponent's abilities.
    Higher, Faster, Further....More.

    She has been able to fight in space many times. So it is not outside her capabilities. She may not have an easy fight against full grown up kryptonians, but she has the power to fight them, and even win.

    More of a Comic Book Rumbles topic, but I don't think you can compare across universes. Marvel comics work according to their own rules--and DC works in a very different way. I really think you can only compare within a universe and within a specific continuity. Wonder Woman is a goddess so she's potentially more powerful than any of the metahuman DC women.

    They do it for rage-clicks. Accuracy isn't the goal. More often than not I bite and check it out so the method works.

    I often when we they do get some of these facts. Not that none of this is true. But some seem questionable. I mean Power Girl is equal to super girl or no? Captain Marvel. I don’t know. Diana has survived much worst things
    On average it seems, baring one or the other character being powered up temporarily, Power Girl and Supergirl, in the pages of the old Supergirl title, Justice League, (and in the sundry nu52 titles they were in), seem to be roughly on par.

    In Simone's run on Wonder Woman, Diana herself seems to think that PG is "at least as strong and as fast as" she is, and a much better fighter than Canary seems to think, just not her. This is after a very good showing by Kara, (yes, another time where PG is mind controlled to fight the other hero...sigh), Diana wins the way she should. Very nice way to do that hero vs hero thing without making either look bad BTW.

    So...go figure. They all vary so much depending on which book it is, where on the pecking order they are at the time, and how big a push they're being given.

    They seemed to be confusing PG with Black Canary...PG has never had a sonic scream...

    And why would her being rich make her stronger than Diana? Why include that tidbit like it makes a difference? Odd.
