We've talked about the more questionable exploits of guys like Superman and Spider-Man, but Wonder Woman is a little different. Though she's since become a feminist icon, Diana Prince spent decades controlled by clueless men who wouldn't know what "respect" was if Aretha Franklin carved it in their foreheads. When we say we've collected "embarrassing" bits of Wonder Woman comic book history in this context, it's usually pointed at the ignorant dickbags who would stoop to disgracing an Amazon.

That said, some of these are kinda on Diana...

 

5. Broke Wonder Woman makes tacos for cash

You'd think that WW's formidable set of skills and snazzy blazer/tiara combo would make her a hot commodity in the job market, but it the economy must be worse than we thought. When Diana was down on her luck, the best she could do was Taco Whiz -- which is like a shitty version of Taco Bell, or Taco Bell when you're not drunk. She was forced to get a job because the Justice League computer thought she was dead and wouldn't pay her; though that's probably the most believable thing that's ever happened in a DC comic, it's not like she doesn't have several millionaire friends to help her out. Really, it couldn't have hurt to hit up Wayne Manor and have Alfred tidy up one of the hundred empty rooms/dead parent shrines in the place.

Of course Wonder Woman is great at her fast food job. She's got world-class speed and reflexes and could lift 5,000 lbs of non-animal meat product without breaking a sweat. It makes you wonder why she bothered with the Taco Whiz job at all. Even her manager is baffled why she's wasting her talents serving bean-flavored Ex-Lax when she could be out busting up creeps. It's true that everyone should probably work retail or food service once in their life just to know what it's like on the other side of the counter, but when it comes to Amazon warriors we could probably make an exception.
