Ahead of Wonder Woman‘s June 2 release, a new survey by thinkThin – a protein-focused nutrition products company – reveals what 1,000 women think of Wonder Woman, superpowers, costumes, and soulmates. Even though the women were from diverse backgrounds and of varying ages, the results of the survey show some strong trends.
63% of respondents said that, if they had a superpower, they’d want one they could use to take positive actions. In particular, they called out invisibility, flight, and telepathy. And regardless of their preferred superpower, two-thirds of the women wanted to use whatever their power was to try and be in two places at once, and half of them said that they’d use their power to excel at work.
To little surprise, respondents also said they admire Wonder Woman over all other female superheroes but they’d prefer a more functional costume than Wonder Woman typically sports. For instance, the women would prefer to rock a headband over a tiara, pants over a skirt, and a shield over a cape. However, 48% of the ladies were keen to use Wonder Woman’s signature lasso of truth to get to the bottom of things. They were also on board with Diana’s decision not to wear a mask and hide her face. Let the baddies know who the one wiping the floor with them is!
One thing the survey participants almost universally agreed on was that Wonder Woman doesn’t need a “soulmate.” When they were asked to pick one, the resounding answer was simply “not answering!” Sounds like they think Wonder Woman doesn’t need a man to define her and recognize her as a strong, independent woman.
“We love that Wonder Woman has super strength and we’re proud to offer delicious products that give women the everyday strength they need to power through their day,” said Michele Kessler, the president of thinkThin.
So what do you think ladies? Do you agree with the survey results? Would you choose anything different? Let us know! And fellas, feel free to let us know what superpowers you’d like most too!

Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
