Diana: "But Doctor, the atom bomb dissolvs any metal into gas--: Doctor: (cutting her off) "Not this metal -- this is stronger than the atom splitting! Naturally a woman can't understand!"]

Dr. Lise Meitner's mathematical figures showed how to split uranium atoms--" Steve: (whispering behind his hand, and also cutting her off):"Pipe down, Di--Novel's going to test his metal with a bomb."]

Guess who turns out to be right about the metal not actually withstanding an atomic blast? Did you guess Wonder Woman/Diana Prince? YOU ARE CORRECT! Guess who turns out to be the villain? Did you guess the mansplaining asshat doctor guy? YOU ARE CORRECT! (Also: Steve Trevor, you should know better! Get it together!)

In conclusion: Yay for ladybrainz and SCIENCE!
