Wonder Woman VS Sailor Moon by Lily-pily Wonder Woman VS Sailor Moon by Lily-pily
EDIT Okay so when I posted this I was on a rant, and already knew the reasons behind why they dress as they are and whatnot, and don't need a briefing of their history, since a lot of people seemed to have done that already. XD It was simply a rant picture, nothing more. 

You all saw it coming. They both have very similar colours and the use of stars/moons. What's with Sailor Moon being 14?? Wanna depend on a child to save you! And why does Wonder Woman wear a very American flag styled outfit? That's odd for a Greek Amazon to wear, isn't it? I haven't drawn an anime styled Sailor Moon for AGES! I used to always draw her as a kid, and I'm still getting used to Bruce Timm's style...

I don't consider 14 to be child. Teenagers are not children. There is a huge difference.

Anywho, now that my mini rant about your rant is done, I do have to say I find it weird that Wonder Woman is in an American flag, but seeing the time she came out of its not surprising.

Yeah I gotta agree. WOnder Woman came out of the golden age of comics around WW2. Superman, Captain America and Wonder Woman weren't just super heroes they were American superheros fighting for everything American. And with the bombing at Pearl Harbor which unified the country with a need for patriotism(while alienating a good portion of the population out of fear and suspicion) these comic book figures became the American heroes that stood for everything that meant being an American. As for Usagi, she was always supposed to be a role model for young girls. Sailor Moon's target audience was adolescent girls in Japan. Now that you think about, in America we didn't always have many kids or even teenagers. Hell at least not before Stan Lee introduced Spider-Man in 63.
Oh nice job. It's really funny :D u got talent.

Why does an, in-universe, Greek costume have an American flag theme? Because she was designed by around WWII, plus back then all super hero comics were made on drugs.

Hey! I don't think it really matters what age you are to save the world,as long as you are reliable enough! I love Sailor Moon,and if you think she's too young for that,you can't handle a lot of Japanese superheroes!!!I think that if anything,american superheroesn are cheesy! What's with this middle-aged,musclebound people who wear underwear over their tights?!!!!

-I can explain the wonder woman wearing american flag themed out fit. If you read the comic and watch the very beginning of the live action tv series; wonder woman's mom explains. She says that while escorting Steve Trevor back to his country the person chosen to take him home will dawn the colors of his country. (not an exact quote.) She goes on to explain that this is a tradition. Although her mom did not plan on wonder woman staying in the U.S. and becoming a super hero. lol

-Oh and as far as sailor moon having slimier boots; well there was always the rumor that the creator of sailor moon was inspired by the old comic of wonder woman.

-I love this drawing two of my favorite characters. Keep the wonderful art!!!!

Oh wow, I really like this! It's amusing and the art is actually well done, unlike many other amusing pictures on this site. But also, manga Sailor Moon turned out to be ridiculously mature, and used all of her power to reset the entire galaxy and even tried to sacrifice her life.

Sailor Moon was 14 when she began being a heroine, but she was 16 when it was all over. There are other teenage heroes who start out around that age

This is all very simple to me. Wonder Woman is partly a version of the Personification of Liberty. You know, those old paintings where 'Liberty' (with the dress falling half off) is leading good old George Washington into battle, while he holds up a sword. Hence, wearing the flag. Also, Greece = Democracy= United States. Also, the 'ideal woman' here is quite liberated, but then, that should be Democracy, no? and then again, the comics are about blunt symbolism. A character WEARS a symbol, the costume IS a symbol, the character IS a LIVING symbol, the bad guy is a living symbol, the story is a symbol of some philosophical debate, and so on.

"Why is Wonder Woman wearing an American flag?"

It may be a little late for this comment, but I thought it might help to mention that her first issue came out in December 1941. It's no surprise to me that she had a patriotic motif. In fact, given the times, it would surprise me if she didn't.

Interesting Fact: Wonder Woman was one of the inspirations for Sailor Moon.

As for why Diana/Wonder Woman wears the colors of USA. She's the Embassador of her people to America, so the Amazons made her a custom that reflects its colors.

She may be much younger than Wonder Woman (she's actually 16 at the end of both the anime and the manga IIRC), but she can take her down very easily.

With time and space control, massively FTL speed, and solar system destruction capabilities, Sailor Moon is one BAMF.

Isn't Wonder Woman also Massively Faster than Light ?

She casually lifted planets and has fought on par with Superman who can range from Solar System to Galaxy buster depending on his Post Crsis feats. Sailor Moon has a pretty hard time, especially with hand to hand.

Still  Sailor Moon did purfify an entire galaxy so she's hardly a slouch in terms of power.

It's not necessarily a bad series, I just disapprove of the age the characters are set, as a lot of them are underage. I still love Sailor Moon as I grew up with it, but I do see the flaws in it.

I cannot answer the sailor moon part, but their is cannon info for why Wonder Woman wears the American Flag outfit. read on if you want to know.


Ok, before Wonder Woman was Wonder Woman, her Mother was. Way back during WWI & II. During this time, for some reason she fought with (as in helping) a group of American Fighter Pilots, who gave her the outfit as a show of thanks. (most likely the just wanted to see her in it)

I remember reading somewhere that Sailor Moon was meant to be based off generic characters like Rainbow Brite, Wonder Woman, Strawberry Shortcake, etc but with its own twist, which, I guess they accomplished...sort of. Would explain why Sailor Moon has Wonder Womans colours.

some already answered why Wonder Woman looks like she was attacked by the American flag. As for your second question, Sailor Moon is fourteen only because junior high school is often considered the "best years" in Japan those are the last years of school that are mandatory by the Japanese government. Yep. Unlike, America, Japanese students don't -have- to go to high school. If they don't, they need parental permission to get a job instead, but they aren't required to enroll in high school. High schools are a lot like college. students are able to move away from home, live in different cities, and dorm/get apartments. it's a lot like college is considered the best years in America. It's a cultural thing. That's why so many anime feature kids around this age and girls in sailor uniforms. Lately though, high school is starting too look like the "best years of one's life", but when Naoko Takeuchi first developed Sailor Moon, that kind of thinking was -definitely- geared toward junior high.

AND, definitely check out the Wonder Woman comics. the trade paper books written by Greg Rucka are just.... awesome. She is such the perfect -everything-.

okay. sorry for the long comment. *disappears*
