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.
Why does Superman need to fly, or Thor, or Martian Manhunter, etc? I'm sorry, but no superhero NEEDS to fly. Holding WW to a different standard makes little sense to me. Her being able to fly DOES NOT make her more like Superman as he is not the only hero who can fly, period. As for the more "grounded warrior" argument, then she's not that much stronger than Batman. I DON'T like that, she should be Superman's equal, and I'm sure that most people would probably agree.
