Is 'The OC's Summer Secretly Wonder Woman?

by Mary Grace Garis

In the early episodes of The O.C. we witness Anna and Summer spar for Seth's affections, primarily utilizing Seth's favorite artistic medium. Anna makes a good show by making Seth a hand-crafted comic, but Summer shows up in full Wonder Woman garb, cooing "I heard you like comic books, Cohen." I don't think there is anyone in the world who wouldn't be forced to admit that she looks good, very Lynda Carter. And it really makes you wonder... does the pint-sized Summer have a lot in common with the Amazonian princess? Are Summer Roberts and Wonder Woman alike?

Well, it's hard to say. Of course, they both look alike, and we've all seen their freakish might. They both have a love of accessories, and they're both royals of their respective lands. However, there are nuances in which the two diverge. Their actions, while often similar, kind of splinter up when it comes to specific causes. Also, if we want to be honest for a second, Summer doesn't have literal super powers. I know it's crazy to say out loud, but it's true.

Anyway, I'm sure you're confused right now. Don't worry. To help you figure it out, we made up a quick chart that should explain the differences between Wonder Woman, a DC superheroine, and Summer Roberts, an O.C. superheroine.
