Two months after she was made an honorary ambassador by the UN, Wonder Woman has been fired from the position.
The superheroine was given the role of Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls in October - raising complaints from those who thought a swimsuit-clad white woman with big breasts wasn't diverse or empowering enough.
Now, after a public backlash, the indestructible Greek demigoddess has been abruptly sent packing back to Paradise Island - although the UN is downplaying the surprise departure.
'It's ending because it's ending. And it was always meant to end,' UN spokesman Jeffrey A Brez said.
'The objective was to reach out to Wonder Woman's fans and I think we did a great job of that.'
But nothing in the announcement - which was unveiled in a glitzy ceremony featuring Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman in the 1970s TV show, and Gal Gadot, who took on the role in Batman V Superman - suggested it would end so soon.
During the October 21 unveiling ceremony at the UN, many staffers silently turned their back to the stage, some with their fists in the air.
UN staffers also started an online petition, eventually signed by more than 44,000 people, that asked secretary-general Ban Ki-moon to reconsider.
'Although the original creators may have intended Wonder Woman to represent a strong and independent "warrior" woman with a feminist message, the reality is that the character's current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit,' the petition read.
The appointment was tone deaf at a time when real women are fighting against sexual exploitation and abuse, and that there were plenty of real heroines that could be the face for gender equality, critics said.
There were questions about whether the character's current portrayal as a violent, sword-wielding warrior was a positive role model for young girls.
