How ‘Wonder Woman’ taught us to love humankind, not just our country

This is not a story that limits itself; it’s a story about the world.

Superhero movies tend to deal with ‘saving the world’ somewhat superficially; the stakes are often too foreign to reality to instill recognition, or crisis is confined to too small a space.  But in Wonder Woman, the war is massive in scope: it’s a war for our own humanity — a humanity that can be too easily forgotten.

Wonder Woman herself has always been an Amazon, but she’s also always been an undeniably American superhero: she wears a white, red and blue outfit with stars. However, her movie surprisingly steers clear of making any sort of patriotic statement. Instead, it reaches out to embrace the full scope of what its story means.
