Superman is the only hero who should fly, that's just dumb.
I have never said he should be the only hero to fly. You are all mistaking my obvious love for Superman as the reason I don't want Wondy to fly. That is not it. Over the years writers have tried to either make her more or less like him by adding powers to her powerset. The flying is the most obvious one that was added. I never really understood why an Amazon would need to fly. Increased speed I got, but not the flying part since it just seemed unnecessary to me. That's more of a fangirl quirk that has nothing to do with Superman really. I prefer her being more a grounded warrior and think that should be the most important thing that is really shown. The flying is superfluous to that IMO.

It depends on her origin really and how they introduce her. I can't really see Pegasus in this world, but I can see some sort of high-tech jet that is invisible to radar and what not.
