Wonder Woman Loses Powers As Honorary U.N. Ambassador For Female Empowerment

Wonder Woman has ended her stint as an honorary U.N. ambassador for female empowerment, just two months after she got the job. For some, the red, white, and blue-clad cartoon heroine was a poor substitute for the woman they wished had taken the position as head of the United Nations, a post that went to Antonio Guterres earlier this year. (Here's a link to the original UN press release about WW's appointment).

Ms. Woman, whose alter ego is Diana Prince, created by William Marston, isn't the first fictional character to hold a U.N. post. Others include Red from the Angry Birds, Tinker Bell, and my favorite, Winnie the Pooh.
