Why does Wonder Woman block bullets with her bracelets but...can take punches from Superman? There's way more psi behind a punch from Superman than a bullet or an arrow, so how does she get hurt from an arrow or a bullet, but can take Superman's punches just fine? :-/

Excluding outside artifacts (bracelets etc), how does her durability rank against the following (Better or worse?):

- Thor

- Hulk

- Original Doomsday

- She-Hulk

- Gladiator

- Extremis Iron Man

- Current Juggernaut

- Wolverine

- Dr. Doom

- Namor (in the ocean)

Well; part of it comes down to the fact that the guy who made Wonder Woman was a psychologist and due to the fact that Wonder Woman was meant to be a female icon in comparison to Superman making her dependent on a man would lessen that.

Basically guns are phallic symbols and we can guess what bullets would.

Ergo being penetrated by a bullet would be to some extent symbolic of having sex and/or being raped.

For either to happen to Wonder Woman would on a symbolic sense cause her to lose her status as a icon, conceptually anyways.

Basically Wonder Woman is the "uber-woman" above you on the the pedestal type and as such you can never be worthy of her hence she is "closed" off to you and unaccessable.

See her whole blocking thing is denying access to her in more ways than one.
