Why is March 22 the birthday of Wonder Woman?
Unlike superheroes like Superman and Batman, the story of Wonder Woman's birth is not told in any of her advertising. DC announced on its calendar in 1976 that March 22 is the day Wonder Woman was born on the island of Paradise. It is not clear why they chose this date. It may be because it is the equinox, the day the length of day and night is equal and spring begins, and this corresponds to the values that Wonder Woman represents - equality and justice.
